Straight Microchannel Printed Circuit Heat Exchanger and Influence of Nanoparticle Shapes of Boehmite Alumina on Thermal Performance

The second law of thermodynamics is utilised to compare the thermal performance of different forms of Boehmite Alumina to Al2O3 aluminium oxide in a Straight Microchannel Printed Circuit heat exchanger. Using empirical coefficients for dynamic viscosity and thermal conductivity, the various forms of non-spherical Boehmite Alumina are dynamically and thermodynamically characterised. Non-spherical shapes include platelets,…

Dispersed Solid Electrolyte Systems: A Brief Review

Solid State Ionics, which have a high ionic conductivity and a low activation energy for ion migration at temperatures below their melting point, are a rapidly emerging research topic. Because of their unusual transport properties and possible applications, these solid electrolytes have piqued the interest of researchers. The dispersion of a non-conducting and chemically non-interacting…

Performance Analysis of Micro Heaters for Sensor Applications

This paper presents the architecture, simulation and analysis for sensor applications of Platinum micro-heaters. In order to investigate the thermal properties of individual electrically powered platinum micro-heaters, the Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis was used. Using COMSOL, the uniform distribution of heat and optimization of power usage for the micro-heaters were carried out by simulating…
