A numerical model and software interface for the design and modelling of Stirling engines was presented. This model was developed to suit low-temperature Stirling engines, those that run at source temperature of less than 150 °C and run at speeds where temporarily developed losses become...
The multisolute osmotic virial equation is the only multisolute thermodynamic solution theory that has been derived from first principles and can make predictions of multisolute solution behaviour in the absence of multisolute solution data. Other solution theories either (i) include simplifying...
Fischer—Tropsch gas loops have been in use for nearly a century, producing synthetic fuels and petrochemicals. Yet there still remain many opportunities to expand its uses, update the gas loop with new technology, as well as better understand at a fundamental level the way the products behave....
20Cr-32Ni-1Nb stainless steel alloys are commonly used in hydrogen reformer manifolds for transporting hot hydrogen by-products at 750-950 celcius. After long periods of exposure, embrittling secondary carbides and intermetallic phases can precipitate at the grain boundaries which can drastically...
Understanding the dsDNA·EG binding interaction is important because the EvaGreen (EG) dye is increasingly used in real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction, high resolution melting analysis, and routine quantification of DNA. In this work, a binding isotherm for the interactions of EG with...
Developing High Precision Heat Capacity Correlations for Organic Solids and Liquids - Extending to Biofuels and SugarsDownload
There is a great need for easily accessible and accurate physical property data in the heavy oil industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and other heavy molecule guided productions. In recent years, high precision predictive correlations for isobaric heat capacities of heavy and ill-defined...
Effect of Heat Exchanger Volume and Geometry on Power Output of a Low Temperature Difference Stirling EngineDownload
This work presents the results of an investigation into heat exchanger design for low temperature difference Stirling engines (LTDSEs). The aim of this study was to determine if there is an optimum heat exchanger geometry for producing maximum power output for a LTDSE. There are multiple factors...
This brief manuscript introduces the subject of thermodynamics and the papers of the special issue on thermodynamic aspects of cryobiology. Thermodynamic terminology is defined for the non-specialist.
Investigation of the Adsorption of Model and Oil Sands Process-Affected Water Naphthenic Acids on GraphiteDownload
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are constituents of bitumen in the oil sands deposits in northern Alberta, Canada. The extraction process of bitumen creates an enormous amount of wastewater called oil sands process affected waters (OSPW). This OSPW contains elevated concentrations of NAs, and other...
