    Investigation of radiation heat transfer In vortex engine is an important and new phenomenon in combustion for scientists and combustion researchers. In this research some parts of the combustion chamber wall are insulated using Blanket as a high insulating material. The rate of radiative heat transfer to the chamber wall is calculated using temperature difference between inner and outer surface of chamber. In the experiments this parts are protected from direct contact with hot combustion media using quartz window. The luminous radiative transfer per volume of chamber and also volume of flame in a vortex engine are compared with that in a similar axial flow type engine. A detector sensitive...

    , Article Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power ; Volume 129, Issue 2 , 2007 , Pages 622-624 ; 07424795 (ISSN) Ghafourian, A ; Saidi, M. H ; Jahangirian, S ; Abarham, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    A new experimental facility was designed, fabricated, and tested to model and study the effect of bidirectional swirl flow on the rate of heat transfer to combustion chamber walls. Reduction of this heat transfer can result in time and cost of design and fabrication methods of combustion chambers. The experimental study was performed using propane and air with oxygen as fuel and oxidizer respectively. For similar flow rates, in cases where bidirectional flow was present, wall temperature reductions of up to 70% were observed. In cases where only some of the oxidizer was injected from the chamber end to generate the bidirectional swirl flow, the lowest wall temperature existed. This can be...

    An analytical solution is presented to study the heat transfer characteristics of the combined pressure - electroosmotically driven flow in planar microchannels. The physical model includes the Joule heating effect to predict the convective heat transfer coefficient in two dimensional microchannels. The velocity field, which is a function of external electrical field, electroosmotic mobility, fluid viscosity and the pressure gradient, is obtained by solving the hydrodynamically fully-developed laminar Navier-Stokes equations considering the electrokinetic body force for low wall zeta potentials. Then, assuming a thermally fully-developed flow, the temperature distribution and the Nusselt...

    The effect of wall cooling in tray-type solid-state fermenters was investigated by cultivation of Aspergillus niger ATCC 10 864 on wheat bran. Temperature, moisture, pH and glucoamylase activity in the bed were monitored. Application of the heat exchanger plate reduced the overall water loss but increased the heterogeneity of moisture distribution in the bed. Moisture content increased markedly close to the heat transfer plate while the upper regions of the bed dried out. The thermal conductivity of the bed was measured to be 0.19 Wm-1 K-1. At these conditions and depending on the air flow rate, 58-82% of the metabolic heat was removed via conduction towards the plate. A mathematical model...

    Role of liquid compressional viscosity in the dynamics of a sonoluminescing bubble

    , Article Physical Review E - Statistical Physics, Plasmas, Fluids, and Related Interdisciplinary Topics ; Volume 70, Issue 1 , 2004 , Pages 6- ; 1063651X (ISSN) Moshaii, A ; Sadighi Bonabi, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    The well-known Rayleigh-Plesset [Formula presented] equation is the basis of almost all hydrodynamical descriptions of single-bubble sonoluminescence [Formula presented]. A major deficiency of the [Formula presented] equation is that it accounts for viscosity of an incompressible liquid and compressibility, separately. By removing this approximation, a new modification of the [Formula presented] equation is presented considering effect of compressional viscosity of the liquid. This modification leads to addition of a new viscous term to the traditional bubble boundary equation. Influence of this new term in the dynamics of a sonoluminescing bubble has numerically been studied considering...

    A three-dimensional finite element analysis was carried out to determine the annual variation of temperature and thermal stresses of a concrete arch dam. Appropriate heat transfer boundary conditions in the dam body were used for air and reservoir temperature as well as solar radiation variations. Karaj arch dam in Iran was used as a case study. The rate of convergence of the numerical solution is examined. Results of the finite element analysis show that probable cracks occur in a very narrow region of the downstream face. Thermal loads have the most significant effects for causing downstream cracks in comparison with self-weigh and hydrostatic loads. The cracked areas of downstream face...

With continuing increase in nonlinear loads, the effects of harmonic contents of power systems on various components is becoming more important. This paper is concerned with the effect of power system harmonics and voltage unbalance on the useful life of electric motors. A simple equivalent circuit is used to calculate the additional heat losses caused by supply distortions. A lumped-parameter thermal network is proposed to calculate the resulting heat distribution within the machine. An Arrhenius chart is then used to estimate motor insulation remaining life. The proposed approach is used to determine the effect of...
