Open-cathode polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) stacks use hydrogen as a fuel, are a high efficiency power source, and do not produce CO2, NOx, SOx, or particulate matter. When used as a remote power source, the PEFC stack must be protected from adverse environmental conditions. To provide...
This work is focused on a state-of-the-art tubular micro-solid oxide fuel cell (TμSOFC), ~3 millimeters in diameter and ~300 microns thick, with Ni/YSZ and LSM/YSZ composite electrodes and a YSZ electrolyte. A 2D axi-symmetric, multi-scale CFD model is developed which includes the fluid flow,...
Non-linear reparameterization of complex models with applications to a microalgal heterotrophic fed-batch bioreactorDownload
Good process control is often critical for the economic viability of large-scale production of several commercial products. In this work, the production of biodiesel from microalgae is investigated. Successful implementation of a model-based control strategy requires the identification of a model...
Prediction of Load-Sharing Mechanisms and Patterns of Human Cervical Spine Injuries Due to High-Velocity Impact Using Finite Element MethodDownload
The purpose of the current study was to investigate the loading rate dependency, load-sharing and injury mechanisms of the C2-C3 cervical spine unit. A ligamentous bio-realistic finite element model was constructed considering comprehensive geometrical representation at tissue level components...
