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...
Polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) operate with a ternary mixture of fuel and reactants. The majority of numerical models in the literature, including the in-house Open-source Fuel Cell Simulation Toolbox (OpenFCST) software, use Fick’s law of diffusion which is only valid for binary...
A Novel Method of Measuring Refractory Black Carbon Mass and Number Distributions by Inversion of CPMA-SP2 DataDownload
A new method of examining mass and number distributions of nanoscale refractive black carbon (rBC) particles has been developed. This method will be useful for atmospheric scientists conducting semi-continuous measurement of atmospheric rBC. The new method uses a Centrifugal Particle Mass...
This study used non-intrusive, optical based measurement techniques in a parametric study of a flash atomized jet. The bench scale water spray was operated at pressure ratios ranging from 6.80-17.0 and degrees of superheat of 20-80 °C. This broad range of parameters allowed for the evaluation of...
The process of microparticle formation from evaporating microdroplets is the main production method for many products. For most of these applications (especially pharmaceutical ones) the properties and morphology of the final dry particle have to be precisely tailored to ensure the proper...
A Particle Engineering Approach to the Development of Microparticles Suitable for Enteric Delivery of BiologicsDownload
Despite tremendous advances in the field of medical science, enteric infections still account for millions of deaths globally each year. Inaccessibility to clean drinking water, sanitation systems and proper healthcare infrastructure in developing parts of the world remains a huge obstacle to...
A Phenomenological Model for Self-rippling Energy of Free Graphene Monolayer and Its ApplicationDownload
Several candidate phenomenological expressions are studied for self-rippling energy that drives ripple formation of free single-layer graphene sheets. One phenomenological expression is admittedbased on the stability criterion of periodic ripple mode, while all others are rejected because they...
Wear-related reliability issues, especially slurry erosion has become one of the principal concerns for the process industries that use slurry pipelines for coarse particle transport. The study and development of an appropriate wear model for slurry pipelines is, therefore, essential from the...
Delayed coking is an essential technology in the upgrading of heavy hydrocarbons in the Canadian oil sands for producing saleable liquid and gas products in order to sustain a viable national energy industry. Delayed coking units contain among the largest pressure vessels used in heavy industry...
A Stochastic Finite Element Analysis Framework for the Multiple Physical Modeling of Filler Modified PolymersDownload
Polymers have various attractive properties (e.g., low volume mass density, low cost and excellent degradation resistance), and hence, they have become essential for a wide range of applications (e.g., aerospace, oil and gas and renewable energy industries). However, due to their limited...
