Analysis and Development of a Small-Scale Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) Brayton Cycle
Carbon dioxide’s (CO<sub>2</sub>) ability to reach the supercritical phase (7.39 MPa and 304.15 K) with low thermal energy input is an advantageous feature in power generation design, allowing for the use of various ...
Sensitivity Analysis for Transient Thermal Problems Using the Complex-Variable Finite Element Method
Solving transient heat transfer equations is required to understand the evolution of temperature and heat flux. This physics is highly dependent on the materials and environmental conditions. If these factors change with ...
Nanomechanics and Ultrastructure of Bone: A Review
(CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences;125(1), 11/1/2020)
In this review, a brief presentation is first given to the hierarchical structure and mechanical behavior of bone. Then, the recent advancements in nanoscale characterization of bone ultrastructure and ingredients are ...
Assessment and Modeling of Plasmonic Photothermal Therapy Delivered via a Fiberoptic Microneedle Device Ex Vivo
Plasmonic photothermal therapy (PPTT) has potential as a superior treatment method for pancreatic cancer, a disease with high mortality partially attributable to the currently non-selective treatment options. PPTT utilizes ...
Fischer–Tropsch Synthesis: Effect of the Promoter’s Ionic Charge and Valence Level Energy on Activity
In this contribution, we examine the effect of the promoter´s ionic charge and valence orbital energy on the catalytic activity of Fe-based catalysts, based on in situ synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction (SXRPD), ...
The Effects of Compressibility on the Performance and Modal Structures of a Sweeping Jet Emitted from Various Scales of a Fluidic Oscillator
Investigations of fluidic oscillators, or sweeping jet actuators, have primarily been conducted within the incompressible flow regime, which limits the accuracy of estimating fluidic oscillator performance for compressible ...
