The traditional approach of cooling tower plume abatement is supposed to result in an unsaturated, well-mixed plume with a ‘‘top-hat” structure in the radial structure, but this is an idealization that is rarely achieved in practice. Meanwhile, previous analyses have shown that there may be an...
Roes, M.A., Bolster, D. and M.R. Flynn
The application of turbulent plume theory in describing the dynamics of emptying filling boxes, control volumes connected to an infinite exterior through a series of openings along the upper and lower boundaries, has yielded novel strategies for the natural ventilation of buildings. Making the...
Buoyancy-driven exchange flow between two adjacent building zones connected with top and bottom ventsDownload
We examine the buoyancy driven flow between two adjacent building zones separated by top and bottom vents with and without a source of buoyancy. In the absence of a source, by opening the vents, the pressure difference between the two zones drives the exchange flow. When there is an isolated...
A comparative study between optimal metal and composite rotors for flywheel energy storage systemsDownload
Most recent research on flywheel rotors has focused on high-speed composite rotors as the storage element of the flywheel energy storage system (FESS). Literature research indicates that this is primarily due to the high specific energy of composites compared to metals. However, a quantitative...
We report upon a theoretical and experimental investigation of a porous medium ‘filling box’ flow by specifically examining the details of the laminar descending plume and its outflow in a control volume having an impermeable bottom boundary and sidewalls. The plume outflow initially comprises a...
Computational Analysis of Gas Transport in Fuel Cell Catalyst Layer under Dry and Partially Saturated ConditionsDownload
Sabharwal, M., Pant, L. M., Patel, N., Secanell, Marc
A computational study is performed to analyze oxygen transport in dry and wet stochastically reconstructed catalyst layers (CLs). CL stochastic reconstructions are generated using random penetrating spheres of a given particle size that agree with the statistical correlation functions of a...
