Theoretical and experimental investigation of a closed sorption thermal storage prototype using LiCl/water

Consolidated water sorbents with varying densities were prepared by adding expanded graphite treated with sulphuric acid to activated carbon-lithium chloride composites for use as a lab-scale prototype for thermal energy storage. The sorption reactor prototype that was designed was unable to reach the 1 kWh heat ...

Experimental determination and fractal modeling of the effective thermal conductivity of autoclaved aerated concrete: Effects of moisture content

Autoclaved aerated concrete was studied because it has potential to be used in the design of energy-efficient buildings. Three different samples were tested, each with a unique density. Of particular interest to this work was the thermal conductivity of the samples, as this material would ...

Thermal Conductivity of Poly-Alpha-Olefin (PAO)-Based Nanofluids

Three techniques were compared for the determination of thermal conductivity in poly-alpha-olefin (PAO)-based nanofluids. The three methods that were used were the transient hot wire, transient plane source, and laser flash techniques. The effects of temperature, nanoparticle concentration, and shape on the thermal conductivity ...


Online monitoring of wax deposition in sub-sea pipelines

The authors have performed a study to determine if heat pulse wax monitoring is capable of measuring the wax thickness build-up in an oil pipeline. A numerical model was developed to simulate the heat pulse equipment and to predict the wax thickness based on the ...

Rapid fabrication of aluminum shoe mold using vacuum sealed casting process

The authors present a method of preparing an aluminum shoe mold by a novel process called vacuum sealed casting. It was determined that the prototype shoe should be made of a resin, and then the mold should be made of aluminum. A composite resin was ...
