Phase Change Materials (Pcm) For Thermal Control During Spacecraft Transportation, Arun Kumar. S, A. Sekar, D.N.Siddhartha Jain, K.V. Govinda

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Phase Change materials (PCMs) absorb and release latent heat during their phase transition nearly at constant temperature. The latent heat storage phenomena using PCMs provides much higher storage density, with a smaller or zero temperature difference while storing and releasing of heat. PCMs have 5-14 times more heat capacity per unit volume than sensible storage materials that merits their usage as passive thermal control systems. They are effectively complemented with active thermal control systems in order to minimize their duty cycles and optimize the capacity. This paper discusses a passive thermal control system using PCMs to maintain the temperature within ...

However, recent advancements in mechatronics, has provided with many alternative solution that avoids excess material addition and increased performance. This paper attempts to summarize various methods that are being developed for vibration detection and suppression. The techniques included in this paper are motion control strategies based on sensors, sensor-actuator and sensorless controllers.

Nucleate Pool Boiling Heat Transfer In Ulticomponent Mixtures On Surfaces: An Review, Sudev Das, Swapan Bhaumik

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Boiling of multicomponent mixtures is characterized by a close linking between heat and mass transfer processes, with the evaporation rate usually being limited by the mass transfer process. This is significantly different from single and binary component systems where interfacial mass transfer rates are normally very high. Information on pool boiling of binary mixtures is widely available in the literature, whereas research on forced convective boiling of mixtures has become significant only over the last few years. This paper presents a brief review of experimental results obtained in pool boiling of ternary mixtures and also the empirical or theoretical correlations ...

Experimental Validation And Data Acquisition For Hyper Elastic Material Models In Finite Element Analysis, Venkatesh K, P. L. Srinivasa Murthy

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

This paper presents the theory, experiment setups and solution implementation of Hyperelastic Material Models in Finite Element Analysis to provide the description of material behavior that matches the conditions the product sees in real life. This can be a complex matter because the real life scenario may have the product responding simultaneously to a multiplicity of conditions such as rate, temperature and the environment. Physical testing of elastomers for the purpose of fitting material models in finite element analysis requires experiments like uniaxial tension, biaxial tension, volumetric compression in multiple states of strain under carefully considered loading conditions.
