High resolution numerical study of a liquid bridge Marangoni flow with applied axial magnetic field for low Prandtl number fluids
The Full Zone model of the thermocapillary (Marangoni) flow in a liquid bridge with an axial magnetic field, measured by the Hartmann number Ha, is studied using a Chebyshev spectral method for low Prandtl number fluids. ...
Investigating mechanical and physical properties of nanostructures
In the first part of the dissertation, mechanical properties of bundles of carbon nanotubes are investigated. Earlier experiments showed that these tubes are tightly packed in the bundles, proving that they are strongly ...
Robust momentum manager controller for space station applications
An innovative methodology to design a robust Control Momentum Gyro (CMG) momentum manager for the International Space Station (ISS) is developed. Unlike most other momentum manager designs, which use either a Linear Quadratic ...
