Experimental and CFD investigation of re-agent mixing in an SCR system
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) cause a gamut of problems such as harmful particulate matter, ground level ozone (smog) and acid rain. Currently, a significant capital is being invested researching new techniques to control NOx ...
On the energy sources of Mozambican households and the demand-supply curves for domestic electricity in the northern electrical grid in Mozambique
Author(s):Arthur, Maria de Fatima Serra Ribeiro
The development of electrical infrastructure to supply rural households is considered economically unfeasible because of the high cost of capital investment required to expand the distribution grids. Although domestic ...
Characterization of gaseous and particulate emissions from combustion of algae based methyl ester biodiesel
The advantages to using biodiesel in place of petroleum diesel are also accompanied by disadvantages. Biodiesel is usually made from crops that are also used to produce food. The land and water use impacts would be profound ...
Simulation method and laboratory brake friction dynamometer for tribology studies, A
Author(s):Nivala, Peter Thompson
Two of the most important parameters of brake system design are the frictional and wear capabilities of the rotor and pad materials. These parameters must meet minimum design requirements in an effort to enhance friction ...
Performance and accuracy enhancements of radiative heat transfer modeling via Monte Carlo
Author(s):Zeeb, Charles Nelson
Two ways to reduce the computational requirements of radiative heat transfer Monte Carlo simulation are explored. First, an efficient algorithm for tracing particles in large, arbitrarily complex, planar geometries containing ...
