An experimental study of stratified flow in enclosures
This paper presents all experimental investigation of flow scenarios that lead to stratification within the ventilated enclosures. The effect of supply terminal and extract terminal at various airflow rates on the flow ...
An empirical approach to river bed degradation.
Degradation in a homogeneous alluvial channel due to complete stoppage of sediment downstream of a high capacity reservoir has been studied empirically. Based on dimensional analysis, a method has been established for ...

On the enhancement of speaker identification accuracy using weighted bilateral scoring
This paper presents investigations into an effective bilateral scoring method in open-set speaker identification. The approach is based on the fact that two different speakers usually are not reciprocal. A difficulty in ...
Detection of Cardiac Signal Characteristic Point Using Log-Domain Wavelet Transform Circuits
To meet the requirement of low power consumption in biomedical implantable pacemaker applications, a novel method based on balanced log-domain wavelet transform (WT) circuits has been developed for detecting QRS complexes ...
The fundamental solution of Mindlin plates with damping in the Laplace domain and its applications
In this paper, a fundamental solution for the Mindlin plate theory with damping is derived in the Laplace transform domain first time. The applications of this fundamental solution are demonstrated by the method of fundamental ...
Characterization and performance of glass-ceramic sealant to join metallic interconnects to YSZ and anode-supported-electrolyte in planar SOFCs
This work describes the design, development and performance of a glass-ceramic sealant used to join the ceramic electrolyte (YSZ wafer and anode-supported-electrolyte (ASE)) to the metallic interconnects (Crofer22 APU and ...
Modelling the dispersion of flashing jets using CFD
Risk assessments related to industrial environments where gas is kept in liquid form under high pressure rely on the results from predictive tools. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is one such predictive tool and it is ...
An investigation and evaluation of variable-valve-timing and variable-valve-actuation strategies in a diesel homogeneous charge compression ignition engine using three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics
A three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics modelling was carried out to investigate effects of variable valve timing (VVT) and variable valve actuation (WA) on gas exchange and fuel-air mixing processes in a diesel ...
Cyclisation reactions of 2-substituted benzoylphosphonates with trialkyl phosphites via nucleophilic attack on a carbonyl-containing ortho substituent
Dimethyl 2-acetoxy- and dimethyl 2-benzoyloxy-benzoylphosphonate undergo cyclisation and deoxygenation in the presence of excess trimethyl phosphite to give dimethyl (3-methyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)phosphonate and dimethyl ...
