This paper is a preliminary design study to develop a hybrid atmospheric icing sensor which have an adequate potential to detect an icing event, icing type and icing rate together with icing load. The physics to detect icing event and icing type have been numerically understood using Debye analytical model. Also the conductivity variations in the Debye model have been understood using modified ...

Earth heat exchangers are drawing increasing attention and popularity due to their efficiency, sustainability and universality. In addition, DBHE can offer higher temperatures and more return on investment than conventional system. DBHE is also an alternative to geothermal power generation or to direct use applications in an extreme engineered (or enhanced) geothermal systems (EGS). However, the ...

Silicon carbide (SiC) single crystals are industrially produced by the physical vapor transport technique. Apart from the geometry of the growth setup, there are two main process parameters that can be controlled: temperature and pressure. To support the development of the process, numerical simulation has imposed as the only tool able to describe the process itself, providing a good evaluation ...

The confinement clean rooms used in industry are susceptible to higher count of particles per cubic meter of air after the usual work program. To decrease the economic and technological effects of particle concentration a micro-cleaning device was elaborated. A first approach of a 3D model of the device was produced and different issues were found. Using COMSOL Multiphysics software to identify ...

Laser assisted brazing with Al-Si fillers in V-shaped groove configuration is a perspective method for joining of aluminum alloys to titanium. The present work introduces multiscale model that allows estimating diffusion process at titanium/melted zone interface in function of thermal history of welded plates. 3D model of heat transfer with moving laser source and fixed geometry is linked to 2D ...

In the molding industry, high productivity rate, low energy consumption, large 3D parts, and homogeneous temperature distribution are the main targets. The 3iTech® inductive technology developed by RocTool ensures both good temperature homogeneity and short heating time. Conventionally, to guarantee efficient cooling, a turbulent water flow is directly integrated into the mold. Ideally, to cope ...

Medical Cyclotrons are used in hospitals to manufacture radiopharmaceuticals. The nuclear reaction between the Cyclotron charged particles and a material takes place inside the so-called targets. In particular, gas target is used when a specific gas is bombarded with proton particles to produce radioactive gas . For successful reaction and good production yield, heat generated due to ...

Micro heat sinks can be widely used for cooling in modern microelectronic high heat flux components where the amount of heat generated sometimes exceeds the limit which the system can withstand. Microstructures when introduced into the channels of heat sinks in form of micro fins enhance the heat transfer performance of the heat sinks further. Copper heat sinks with different types of micro fins ...

Chlorine reactor is used to dry molten LiCl-KCl eutectic salt before it is put to use in electrorefining operation. Molten salt electrorefining is a pyrochemical method of separation of heavy elements from spent metallic nuclear fuel. It is a high-temperature process which uses molten salt as supporting electrolyte for electrodeposition of heavy metals. The LiCl component in the molten LiCl-KCl ...

The novel concept of distributing the food super chilled (partially frozen) in order to prolong the shelf life has been suggested in the project. The temperature of the distribution chain is envisaged to be +5C. The suggested application has the following advantages: 1) Partial thawing of the product in the distribution chain makes it easier to handle. 2) The unhealthy and labour-demanding ...
