A parametric study of the characteristics of coaxial dielectric barrier discharge sustained in atmospheric pressure argon is carried out. The numerical model is based on the drift-diffusion theory of gas discharges. The integral characteristics of the discharge, such as the root mean square of the discharge current, the period average dissipated power, and the efficiency of the power deposition, are explored in the parameter space spanned by the voltage amplitude and frequency of the applied AC field, the barrier dielectric constant, and the gas gap width.

This work is devoted to the numerical study of characteristics of dielectric barrier discharge maintained in a coaxial reactor in atmospheric pressure CO2. The numerical model is based on the drift-diffusion theory of gas discharges, and takes into account the gas heating in a self-consistent manner. The effect of incorporating gas heating into the discharge properties, specifically, on CO2 decomposition, is investigated for wide range of amplitude and frequency of the applied voltage. Calculations revealed...

Residue particles with volume median diameters ranging from 23 to 68 nm were made by dispersing KNO3 or MnCL2.4H2O solutions with commercially available pneumatic nozzles at liquid flow rates of 0.07 and 0.021 cm3/s and atomizing air pressures (gauge) ranging from 276 to 3447 kPag. Droplets with median diameters of 1.5 +/- 0.03-mu-m were made at the 0.07 cm3/s liquid flow rate, which represents a nearly 10-fold increase in liquid flow rate achieved with Collison atomizers used to generate droplets of simil...
An experimental investigation on performance of annular fins on a horizontal cylinder in free convection heat transfer
Yildiz, S; Yüncü, Hafit (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-02-01)
Natural convection heat transfer in annular fin-arrays mounted on a horizontal cylinder was experimentally investigated. An experimental set-up was constructed to investigate heat transfer characteristics of 18 sets of annular fin-arrays mounted on a horizontal cylinder of 24.9-mm diameter in atmospheric conditions. Keeping the fin thickness fixed at 1 mm, fin diameter is varied from 35 mm to 125 mm and fin spacing is varied from 3.6 mm to 31.7 mm. The base-to-ambient temperature difference was also varied ...
A CSCM Approximation of Steady MHD Flow and Heat Transfer Between Parallel Plates with Hydrodynamic Slip and Convective Boundary Conditions
Tezer, Münevver; Türk, Önder (2021-01-01)
© 2021, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.The steady magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow and heat transfer between parallel plates is considered in which the electrically conducting fluid has temperature dependent properties such as viscosity, thermal and electrical conductivity. The fluid is driven by a constant pressure gradient, and a uniform external transverse magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the plates. The effects of viscous and Joule dissipations are considered in the energy equation, and the flui...
Magnetic resonance imaging of polymer melt flows
Uludağ, Yusuf; Powell, RL; Barall, G (2000-01-01)
A tubular rheometry that is based on obtaining velocity profiles by nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI) and measuring pressure drop of the flow is used for the polymer melts. This technique allows one to get viscosity data potentially over many decades of shear rate region in a single measurement. In this study, we examined polyethylene melt as the flow medium. Despite the low shear rates attained, our results reveal that this non-invasive and non-destructive method is promising for constructing an on...
