Nuclear power

What is nuclear power? The definition of nuclear power: Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy; that is generating heat (boiling water that makes steam), which is used to turn turbines to generate electricity. Nuclear power is energy contained in atoms. This energy can be released as heat which turns … Read more

Functional properties and the economic viability of milled Asphalt Pavements in road construction

When incorporated RAP is greater than 20%, suggested testing both the RAP and virgin binder (bitumen) using a blending chart. At a higher percentage the change in RAP mixture characteristics becomes evident; the effect of RAP in mix designs varies with the quantity of RAP in the mix. This combination must meet gradation specifications and … Read more

Open-loop subsonic wind tunnel

ABSTRACT Wind tunnel is a device used for defining various flow phenomena for various objects like cars, airplanes etc. In automobiles and airplanes various forces affect the efficiency and speed which calls for a testing of new vehicle-scaled models in a wind tunnel testing machine. From this, aerodynamic estimates can be calculated and used for … Read more

Simulation of the multiphase flow in dense medium cyclone with high orientation angle containing ‎ferrosilicon medium: a CFD study

A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) numerical study of the multiphase flow in a dense medium ‎cyclone (DMC) have been conducted to predict the flow pattern and medium (defined as the ‎mixture of water and the ferrosilicon) segregation containing ferrosilicon. The volume of fluid ‎‎(VOF) model is used to show the initial shape and position of … Read more

STATIC AND MODAL ANALYSIS OF REAR DOOR OF A PASSENGER CAR USING FEM

Key Words: Car Door, CAE, Hypermesh, NASTRAN Project Area: Finite element analysis Abstract: When performing the structure-borne road and engine vibration simulations on vehicle system models, the doors play an important part. They not only determine the general guidelines of car style, but also are vital for passenger’s safety. This accentuates the necessity of good … Read more

Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT)

ABSTRACT Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) technique needs a special design methodology. In this work, a new design method for a multilayer spectrum shifter is proposed in order to improve the design process of epithermal BNCT beams for research reactors. This design method is based on two concepts: stepwise spectrum shifting, and separation of the … Read more

VARIABLE STRUCTURE CONTROL OF A WIND / PHOTOVOLTAIC HYBRID GENERATION SYSTEM

Control Engineering Prepared by Hxxxx Fxxxx Mxxxxx ‘ Summary The need for power generation from renewable sources is rapidly increasing worldwide because they are more environment-friendly and because fossil fuels reserves are decreasing over time. The potential for renewable energy resources is enormous because they can, in principle, exceed the world’s energy demand in addition … Read more

Use of ESP

Recent developments in the oil industry have led to renewed interest in artificial lift methods such as, electrical submersible pumps (ESP’s), gas lift and sucker-rod pump. When the oil is being extracted from the ground is due to the difference among the reservoir and well-bore pressure by producing naturally or using artificial lift mechanisms. In … Read more
