Design And Validation Of An Experimental Setup To Study Single Phase Heat Transfer Enhancement Of Femtosecond Laser Processed Metallic Surfaces, Sarah Jane Wallis 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Design And Validation Of An Experimental Setup To Study Single Phase Heat Transfer Enhancement Of Femtosecond Laser Processed Metallic Surfaces, Sarah Jane Wallis

Mechanical (and Materials) Engineering -- Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research

In the present work, a single phase flow heat transfer experimental loop was designed with the intention of studying the effects of femtosecond laser surface processing (FLSP) on metallic surfaces with the specific goal of enhancing heat transfer in compact heat exchangers currently in use by NASA. This experimental setup went through two major design iterations which are detailed in this thesis. The first iteration consisted of a counterflow fluid-to-fluid heat exchanger, which measured overall heat transfer coefficients and pressure drops, where the overall heat transfer coefficient is defined in terms of the total thermal resistance to heat transfer between ...

The thesis provides a brief introduction to the computational technique adopted for the geometric generation of the REV (YADE), followed by a parametric study undertaken to reveal the minimum number of particles inside the REV that are required to mimic the appropriate physics. Additional analysis was conducted with the goal of determining the influence of deviation ...


The Onset Of Convection In Rarefied Gases, Md Asif Zobaer 2017 The University of Western Ontario

The Onset Of Convection In Rarefied Gases, Md Asif Zobaer

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The onset of convection in the Rayleigh-Bénard problem for a monatomic rarefied gas at small Knudsen number has been investigated. Compressibility-induced density variations have been considered without imposing any restriction on the magnitude of temperature difference. A linear temporal stability analysis has been conducted for a compressible slip-flow model considering a Maxwellian gas and the dispersion relation is calculated using a Chebyshev collocation method. A neutral stability curve obtained in the Froude-Knudsen number plane marks transition to convection from a pure conduction state. The critical wave number observed for the onset of convection is in good agreement with the existing ...

Numerical Simulations Of Transcritical Natural Convection, Ruiwen Wei, Carlo Scalo, Mario Tindaro Migliorino, Kukjin Kim, Jean-Pierre Hickey

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

In modern engineering applications, system overheating is a key issue that needs to be solved with efficient and reliable cooling technologies. Among the possible mechanisms that these are based on, natural convection cooling is one of the most frequently employed, with applications ranging from cooling of computer micro-components to large nuclear reactors. While many studies have been performed on natural convection employing supercritical or subcritical fluids, little attention has been given to fluids in their transcritical regime. The latter has the potential to yield high performances while avoiding detrimental effects of two-phase systems (e.g. cavitation). In the present study ...


Secondary Atomization: Drop Breakup In A Continuous Air Jet, Grant S. Sondgeroth, Longchao Yao, Catriona M.L. White, Daniel R. Guildenbecher, Jun Chen, Paul E. Sojka 2017 Purdue University

Secondary Atomization: Drop Breakup In A Continuous Air Jet, Grant S. Sondgeroth, Longchao Yao, Catriona M.L. White, Daniel R. Guildenbecher, Jun Chen, Paul E. Sojka

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Understanding drop breakup will optimize aircraft engine performance, reduce agro-chemical overspray, and improve pharmaceutical tablet efficacy. Large fuel fragments in engines lead to lowered fuel economy and higher pollutant emissions, while small drops yield more agro-spray drift into surrounding residential and environmental zones. Better pharmaceutical tablets will improve drug uptake and patient comfort.

Engineers and scientists are currently unable to predict the number, size, and velocity of fragments formed during important drop breakup processes. Therefore, we are required to measure these quantities. We use digital inline holography (DIH) to record three-dimensional diameter and position data for fragments formed during multi-mode ...


Burning Surface Temperature Measurements Of Propellants And Explosives Using Phosphor Thermography, Ethan A. Whitaker, Alex D. Casey, Steven F. Son 2017 Purdue University

Burning Surface Temperature Measurements Of Propellants And Explosives Using Phosphor Thermography, Ethan A. Whitaker, Alex D. Casey, Steven F. Son

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Temperature measurements of propellants and explosives are necessary to create accurate models which lead to better understanding of energetic characteristics such as burning rate. Previous attempts at measuring surface temperatures of burning propellants and explosives using thermocouples have suffered from large uncertainty. Thermographic phosphor thermography employs ceramic powders called phosphors whose spectroscopic properties can be used to remotely and nearly non-intrusively measure temperature. Improved methods were developed for application of this technique to energetic materials to yield more accurate, two-dimensional temperature measurements. In this study, zinc oxide doped with gallium, a thermographic phosphor, was mixed into HMX and RDX powder ...


Spectral Phonon Relaxation Time Calculation Tool Based On Molecular Dynamics, Divya Chalise, Tianli Feng, Xiulin Ruan 2017 University of Texas at Arlington

Spectral Phonon Relaxation Time Calculation Tool Based On Molecular Dynamics, Divya Chalise, Tianli Feng, Xiulin Ruan

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Thermal conductivity is an important material property which affects the performance of a wide range of devices from thermoelectrics to nanoelectronics. Information about phonon vibration modes and phonon relaxation time gives significant insight into understanding and engineering material’s thermal conductivity. Although different theoretical models have been developed for studying phonon modes and relaxation time, extensive knowledge of lattice dynamics and molecular dynamics is required to compute phonon modal frequencies and relaxation times. Therefore, a computational tool which can take simple inputs to calculate phonon mode frequencies and relaxation time will be beneficial. Through this research work, such computational tool ...


Modal Phonon Transport Across Interfaces By Non-Equilibrium Molecular Dynamics Simulation, Yang Zhong, Tianli Feng, Xiulin Ruan 2017 Purdue University

Modal Phonon Transport Across Interfaces By Non-Equilibrium Molecular Dynamics Simulation, Yang Zhong, Tianli Feng, Xiulin Ruan

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Phonons represent the quantization of lattice vibration, responsible for heat transfer in semiconductors and dielectrics. Phonon heat conduction across interfaces is crucially important for the thermal management of real-life devices such as smartphones, electric vehicles, and satellites. Although recent studies have broadly investigated spectral phonon contribution to lattice thermal conductivity, the mechanism of phonon modal transport across interfaces is still not well-understood. Previous models, including the acoustic mismatch model (AMM) and diffuse mismatch model (DMM), only consider elastic process while neglecting inelastic phonon contributions. Herein, we employ spectral Non-Equilibrium Molecular Dynamics Simulation (NEMD) to probe the temperature and heat flux ...


Thermoelectric System Modeling And Design, Buddhima Pasindu Gamarachchi 2017 Boise State University

Thermoelectric System Modeling And Design, Buddhima Pasindu Gamarachchi

Boise State University Theses and Dissertations

Thermoelectric generators (TEGs) convert heat to electricity by way of the Seebeck effect. TEGs have no moving parts and are environmentally friendly and can be implemented with systems to recover waste heat. This work examines complete thermoelectric systems, which include the (TEG) and heat exchangers or heat sinks attached to the hot and cold sides of the TEG to maintain the required temperature difference across the TEG. A 1-D steady state model is developed to predict the performance of a TEG given the required temperatures and device dimensions. The model is first validated using a 3-D model and then is ...

Investigation, Modeling And Validation Of Digital Bridge For A New Generation Hot-Wire Anemometer, Karthik Kamalakar Joshi 2017 Old Dominion University

Investigation, Modeling And Validation Of Digital Bridge For A New Generation Hot-Wire Anemometer, Karthik Kamalakar Joshi

Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Theses & Dissertations

The Digital Bridge Thermal Anemometer (DBTA) is a new generation anemometer that uses advanced electronics and a modified half-Wheatstone bridge configuration, specifically a sensor and a shunt resistor in series. This allows the miniaturization of the anemometer and the communication between host computer and anemometer is carried out using serial or ethernet which eliminates the noise due to the use of long cables in conventional anemometer and the digital data sent to host computer is immune to electrical noise. In the new configuration the potential drop across a shunt resistor is used to control the bridge.

This thesis is confined ...

Simple Tester For Measuring Lateral Thermal Diffusivities In Composites, Stephen D. Holland, Elizabeth Gregory, Daniel Romero 2017 Iowa State University

Simple Tester For Measuring Lateral Thermal Diffusivities In Composites, Stephen D. Holland, Elizabeth Gregory, Daniel Romero

Stephen D. Holland

Model-based analysis and inversion of thermography data relies on knowledge of thermal diffusivities. Through-thickness diffusivity is readily measured using the flash method [1]. In composite materials, lateral diffusivities may be drastically different from the through-thickness values, but there is no comparable simple and standard approach for measuring those lateral thermal diffusivities. Welch, Heath, and Winfree [2] proposed a technique based on laser line pulse excitation, but that approach requires a reasonably powerful laser and thermal camera with the concomitant costs and safety requirements. In this presentation, we show a simple and low cost (but not entirely nondestructive) system and method ...


Adhesion Hysteresis And Its Role In Vibrothermography Crack Heating, Bryan E. Schiefelbein, Tyler Lesthaeghe, Ashraf F. Bastawros, Stephen D. Holland 2017 Iowa State University

Adhesion Hysteresis And Its Role In Vibrothermography Crack Heating, Bryan E. Schiefelbein, Tyler Lesthaeghe, Ashraf F. Bastawros, Stephen D. Holland

Stephen D. Holland

Vibrothermography is an NDE inspection which uses vibration to stimulate surface cracks and measure the resultant heat generation. For years, the accepted assumption has been that heat generation in Vibrothermography NDE is due to friction between opposing crack surfaces [1–3]. A frictional mechanism suggests that crack surfaces in sliding shear would generate heat, whereas crack surfaces coming into and out of contact in an opening-closing mode would not, or would generate much less. But cracks heat easily in opening/closing mode and experimental evidence [4] is not consistent with the prediction that heat generation for shear vibration should be ...
