Experimental investigations of the performance of a flat-plate solar collector using carbon and metal oxides based nanofluids
Covalently functionalized carbon nanoplatelets and non-covalent functionalized metal oxides nanoparticles (surfactant-treated) have been used to synthesize water-based nanofluids in this paper. To prove nanofluid stability, ...
Development of a Linear Acoustic Array for Aero-Acoustic Quantification of Camber-Bladed Vertical AxisWind Turbine
Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) are a source of renewable energy and are used for both industrial and domestic purposes. The study of noise characteristics of a VAWT is an important performance parameter for the turbine. ...
Developments in Chemical Treatments, Manufacturing Techniques and Potential Applications of Natural-FibersBased Biodegradable Composites
The utilization of synthetic materials stimulates environmental concerns, and researchers worldwide are effectively reacting to environmental concerns by transitioning towards biodegradable and sustainable materials. ...
Investigation of Heat Transfer and Pressure Drop in Microchannel Heat Sink Using Al2O3 and ZrO2 Nanofluids.
A new micro heat exchanger was analyzed using numerical formulation of conjugate heat transfer for single-phase fluid flow across copper microchannels. The flow across bent channels harnesses asymmetric laminar flow and ...
Characterization of Failure Strain In Fiber Reinforced Composites:
: Metals are known for high ductility and have, been used to design and fabricate structural components for many years. However, composite materials are taking over traditional materials owing to their significant ...
