Predictions for cryogenic homogeneous two-phase in a choked laval nozzle

Akmandor, IS
Nagashima, T
The vapor-liquid, two-phase, inviscid, compressible how in a converging-diverging nozzle is computed by high accuracy total variation diminishing and Newton-Raphson schemes. A homogeneous speed of sound definition based on flow quality and void Fraction is presented, along with some gas dynamic relations. Analytical two phase mass-flow expressions are also derived, and solutions are compared with those obtained from the numerical schemes. The computational results of void-fraction and Mach-number relation obtained for the Laval nozzle compare favorably with both schemes. Equilibrium and nonequilibrium numerical results for cryogenic nitrogen how are also presented. Numerical mass flux at both choked and unchoked throat conditions agrees with experimental data, but some discrepancy is observed in the pressure profiles at the diffusing portion of the nozzle.


Short-range correlations in a one-dimensional electron gas
Tas, M; Tomak, Mehmet (American Physical Society (APS), 2003-06-15)
We use the Singwi-Sjolander-Tosi-Land (SSTL) approximation to investigate the short-range correlations in a one-dimensional electron gas. We find out that the SSTL approximation satisfies the compressibility sum rule somewhat better than the more widely used Singwi-Tosi-Land-Sjolander approximation in the case of a one-dimensional electron gas.
The electronic and elasticity properties of new half-metallic chalcogenides Cu(3)TMCh(4) (TM = Cr, Fe and Ch = S, Se, Te): an ab initio study
ERKİŞİ, AYTAÇ; SÜRÜCÜ, GÖKHAN (Informa UK Limited, 2019-02-16)
The ternary copper-based chalcogenides Cu(3)TMCh(4) (TM = Cr, Fe and Ch = S, Se, Te), which have simple cubic (SC) crystal structure and conform to space group with 215 space number, have been investigated by spin-polarised generalised gradient approximation (GGA) in the framework of density functional theory (DFT). All systems have been considered in ferromagnetic (FM) order. The mechanical and thermal properties and the electronic band structures of these systems have been investigated after the well-opti...
Determination of trapping parameters in n-Ga4Se3S by thermally stimulated current measurements
Goksen, K.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Thermally stimulated current (TSC) measurements were carried out on as-grown n-Ga4Se3S layered crystals in the temperature range 10-300 K. The experimental data were analysed by using different heating rates, initial rise, curve fitting and isothermal decay methods. The results of the analysis showed good agreement with each other. The measurements revealed the presence of one trapping level with activation energy of 23 meV. The corresponding capture cross-section and concentration of traps were found to be...
Calculation of the free energies for the solid phases of ammonium halides
Salihoglu, S.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Karacali, H. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Using mean field theory, we calculate the free energies of the solid phases of ammonium halides. The temperature and pressure dependences of the free energies are obtained using experimental phase diagrams of the ammonium halides. From these dependences, we calculate numerically the specific heat as a function of temperature for the solid I-liquid, solid II-liquid and solid I-solid II transitions in the ammonium halides, in particular for NH4Cl. The critical behaviour of some other thermodynamic quantities ...
Numerical evidence of spontaneous division of dissipative solitons in a planar gas discharge-semiconductor system
Rafatov, İsmail (AIP Publishing, 2019-09-01)
This work deals with the formation of patterns of spatially localized solitary objects in a planar semiconductor gas-discharge system with a high Ohmic electrode. These objects, known as dissipative solitons, are generated in this system in the form of self-organized current filaments, which develop from the homogeneous stationary state by the Turing bifurcation. The numerical model reveals, for the first time, evidence of spontaneous division of the current filaments in this system, similar to that observe...
