Potential of Concentrated Solar Thermal Energy for Industrial Applications



Proposal of a Novel Gravity-Fed, Particle-Filled Solar Receiver
JOHNSON, Evan; Baker, Derek Keıth; Tarı, İlker (2016-10-14)
Solar Thermal Electricity power plants utilizing solid particles as heat transfer and storage media have been proposed by several research groups, with studies citing benefits of increased thermal efficiency and lower cost. Several types of solid particle receivers have been proposed, with leading designs consisting of particles falling or suspended in air. A new solid particle receiver is proposed here, consisting of a receiver fully packed with particles flowing downward with gravity. Particle flow rate i...
Application of in situ Solid-Phase Microextraction on Mediterranean Sponges for Untargeted Exometabolome Screening and Environmental Monitoring
Bojko, Barbara; Onat, Bora; Boyacı, Ezel; Psillakis, Eleftheria; Dailianis, Thanos; Pawliszyn, Janusz (Frontiers Media SA, 2019-10-11)
In marine ecosystems, sponges are ubiquitous sessile organisms that contain a wide range of specialized metabolites. These metabolites point to a diverse range of biochemical pathways. Some of these compounds are biomarkers that indicate the presence of bacteria that form symbiotic relationships with a host sponge (microsymbionts). Sponges hold considerable promise as bioindicators for seawater quality monitoring, as they are exposed to, and accumulate, significant levels of anthropogenic contamination in c...

Optimization of compact electromagnetic energy harvesters for wireless sensor applications
Yaşar, Oğuz; Külah, Haluk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
The developments in wireless sensor systems force researchers to analyze how to satisfy power requirements of these systems. Batteries can be the main candidate to be used as power source; however, they affect negatively the continuity of the wireless systems due to their limited lifetime. In order to provide continuous power source, energy harvester modules are proposed. With the advancements on IC technology, it is possible to convert extracted energies to power sources for the sensors operating in wirele...
Application of High Resolution Magnetic Resonance Imaging Methods for Spinal Cord Tissue Segmentation
Durlu, Caglayan; Erdogan, Hasan Balkar; Kucukdeveci, Osman Fikret; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri (2016-01-01)
This paper presents the primitive results of high resolution Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging experiments that are performed for spinal cord segmentation purposes. In the study, it is aimed to image the epidural space, the cerebrospinal fluid, the white matter and the gray matter tissues in the lower cervical and upper thoracic regions of the spine with a maximum voxel size of 1x1x1 mm(3). For this purpose, the MRI sequences providing T2 and T2* images and used for spinal cord segmentation in the literature ...
