Integrated Wireless Optical Networking
The interoperability of wireless and PON topologies is investigated to reduce deployment expenditure by means of centralised network management while providing ubiquitous access connections and mobility. In addition, the ...
On multi-objective optimization of geometry of staggered herringbone micromixer
A design methodology for micromixers is presented which systematically integrates computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with an optimization methodology based on the use of design of experiments (DOE), function approximation ...
GPON Extended Wavelength Band Overlay
Numerical investigation of soot reduction potentials with diesel homogeneous charge compression ignition combustion by an improved phenomenological soot model
An improved phenomenological soot model coupled with a reduced n-heptane chemical mechanism was implemented into KIVA-3V code to describe soot formation and oxidation processes in diesel homogeneous charge compression ...
Numerical investigations of heat transfer in phase change materials using non-equilibrium model
Phase change materials (PCMs) are drawing increasing attention of researchers nowadays, and they play a pivotal role in thermal energy storage (TES) used in renewable energy resources applications, since these renewable ...
Fluid structure interaction of a two-dimensional membrane in a flow with a pressure gradient with application to convertible car roofs
The flow-induced deformation of a membrane in a flow with a pressure gradient is studied. The investigation focuses on the deformation of aerodynamically loaded convertible car roofs. A computational methodology is developed ...
Performance evaluation of MEMS accelerometers
Researchers have been looking for alternatives of expensive conventional accelerometers in vibration measurements. Micro-ElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) accelerometer is one of the available options. Here the performance ...
BS-ISO helical gear fatigue life estimation and wear quantitative features analysis
Lack of representative theoretical models for gear wear causes difficulties in their useful lifetime prediction. Critical operating parameters, such as loading and lubrication, affect the wear process in a very complex ...
Heat transfer analysis for phase change materials (PCMs)
The heat transfer enhancement for phase change materials (PCMs) has received much attention nowadays, since most of PCMs have low thermal conductivities which prolong the charging and discharging processes. Metal foams, ...
