Natural Fibre Sheet Moulding Compounds : Manufacturing And Fire Performance
(Zhejiang University Press, 2008-12-01)
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Detection scheme for space-time block codes wireless communications without channel state information
In this paper, the new detection scheme proposed by Tarokh and Alamouti is investigated and expanded to two schemes of two transmit two receive antennas and four transmit one receive antennas. Previously, Tarokh and Alamouti, ...
Experimental evaluation of the electric pulse effect on residual stresses in a Ti-Al-Si-Ag coating
Experimental results and stress-strain state simulation by the finite element method show that a thin oxidation-resistant coating sputtered onto a titanium alloy substrate develops high-level residual stresses. The electric ...
