Heat transfer of a single wall carbon nanotube
A non equilibrium molecular dynamics simulation was used to calculate thermal conductivity of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT). Effective thermal conductivity was calculated for the same SWNT surrounded by nitrogen ...
An analytical model for near-infrared light heating of a slab by embedded gold nanoshells
Exposed to spectral and uniform light, a one-dimensional, conducting and radiatively participating medium due to embedded absorbing and scattering gold nanoshells is solved. P1 Approximation method is used to solve the ...
Design of a methanol to hydrogen micro-reformer for fuel cell applications
A new design for a microchannel methanol-steam reformer has been developed to provide power in conjunction with a micro fuel cell for a portable, low-power device. The design is optimized for low pumping power and rapid ...
