Design and Calibration of a Novel High Temperature Heat Flux Sensor
(Virginia Tech, 2005-02-16)
Heat flux gages are important in applications where measurement of the transfer of energy is more important than measurement of the temperature itself. There is a need for a heat flux sensor that can perform reliably for ...
Optimization of multiple chiller systems
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1984)
Design, Test, and Evaluation of a High Powered 4 DOF Prosthetic Leg for Transfemoral Amputees
(Virginia Tech, 2019-07-01)
A high powered 4 DOF prosthesis for transfemoral amputees is presented in this paper. The prosthesis utilizes series elastic actuators with high powered hobby grade helicopter motors capable of providing 2880~W of power ...
Performance tests and cooling effect distribution of the V.P.I. forced draft cooling tower
(Virginia Tech, 1939-05-15)
<p>Test data of forced draft cooling towers is all too meager, and that available is, in many instances, incomplete. It is the opinion of the authors that putting cooling tower design on a rational basis can be brought ...
An experimental study of the wall characteristics of a local fluid constriction plasma generator
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1973)
Design of a microcomputer-based microporous membrane process controller
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1985)
A model of the formation of a porous fibrous cake
(Virginia Tech, 1994)
Synthesis of a near-optimum finite element mesh
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1982)
Model of chromium poisoning in the cathode of a solid oxide fuel cell using the lattice Boltzmann method
(Virginia Tech, 2010-02-12)
The metallic interconnect of a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) contains chromium in order to protect the metal from the corrosive environment in the fuel cell. Unfortunately, the chromium introduces chemical instability in ...
Infrared microscope studies of surface temperatures produced by friction with graphite-epoxy and carbon-PEEK composites
(Virginia Tech, 1991)
An infrared microscope system was used to measure the temperatures at the interfaces of graphite-epoxy and carbon-PEEK composites in unidirectional sliding contact with sapphire. Effects of fiber orientation and velocity ...
