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 ...
Influences of nanoparticle zinc oxide on acutely isolated rat hippocampal CA3 pyramidal neurons
The effects of zinc oxide nanoparticles (nano-ZnO) on the properties of voltage-dependent sodium, potassium currents and evoked action potentials were studied in acutely isolated rat hippocampal CA3 pyramidal neurons at ...
Stereo Viewing and Virtual Reality Technologies in Mobile Robot Teleguide
The use of 3-D stereoscopic visualization may provide a user with higher comprehension of remote environments in teleoperation when compared with 2-D viewing, in particular, a higher perception of environment depth ...
Characterisation of copper oxide nanoparticles for antimicrobial applications
Copper oxide (CuO) nanoparticles were characterised and investigated with respect to potential antimicrobial applications. It was found that nanoscaled CuO, generated by thermal plasma technology, contains traces of pure ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
