Industrial Solid-State Energy Harvesting: Mechanisms and Examples

This paper explores the potential for solid-state energy harvesting in industrial applications. In contrast to traditional heat recovery, the output of solid-state devices is electricity, which can be readily used in virtually any plant. The progress in Continue reading

Design of a Carbon Fibre Rim for a Fuel Efficient Competition Vehicle

Motivated by the persistently pursued weight reductions in a vehicle projected for a fuel efficiency competition, this thesis deals with designing new and lighter rims for the vehicle. The aim of the project is to design the rims with Continue reading

Microscale Investigation of Thermo-Fluid Transport in the Transition FIL, Region of an Evaporating Capillary Meniscus Using a Microgravity Environment

In order to enhance the fundamental understanding of thin film evaporation and thereby improve the critical design concept for two-phase heat transfer devices, microscale heat and mass transport is to be investigated for the transition film region using Continue reading
