Book Description :

"Preface The day of nanoparticles and nanofluids has arrived, and the applications of these media are legion. Here, attention is focused on such disparate applications as biomedical, energy conversion, material properties, and fluid flow and heat transfer. The common denominator of the articles which set forth these applications here is numerical quantification, modeling, simulation, and presentation. The first chapter of this volume conveys a broad overview of nanofluid applications, while the second chapter continues the general thermofluids theme and then narrows the focus to biomedical applications. Chapters 3 and 4 deepen the biomedical emphasis. Equally reflective of current technological and societal themes is energy conversion from dispersed forms to more concentrated and utilizable forms, and these issues are treated in Chapters 5 and 6. Basic to the numerical modeling and simulation of any thermofluid process are material properties. Nanofluid properties have been shown to be less predictable and less repeatable than are those of other media that participate in fluid flow and heat transfer. Property issues for nanofluids are set forth in Chapters 6 and 7. The last three chapters each focus on a specific topic in nanofluid flow and heat transfer. Chapter 8 deals with filtration. Microchannel heat transfer has been identified as the preferred means for the thermal management of electronic equipment, and the role of nanofluids as a coolant is discussed in Chapter 9. Natural convection is conventionally regarded as a low heat-transfer coefficient form of convective heat transfer. Potential enhancement of natural convection due to nanoparticles is the focus of Chapter 10"...

Book Description :

Nanomaterials for Direct Alcohol Fuel Cells explains nanomaterials and nanocomposites as well as the characterization, manufacturing, and design of alcohol fuel cell applications. The advantages of direct alcohol fuel cells (DAFCs) are significant for reliable and long-lasting portable power sources used in devices such as mobile phones and computers. Even though substantial improvements have been made in DAFC systems over the last decade, more effort is needed to commercialize DAFCs by producing durable, low-cost, and smaller-sized devices. Nanomaterials have an important role to play in achieving this aim. The use of nanotechnology in DAFCs is vital due to their role in the synthesis of nanocatalysts within the manufacturing process. Lately, nanocatalysts containing carbon such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, and carbon nanocoils have also attracted much attention. When compared to traditional materials, carbon-based materials have unique advantages, such as high corrosion resistance, better electrical conductivity, and less catalyst poisoning. This book also covers different aspects of nanocomposites fabrication, including their preparation, design, and characterization techniques for their fuel cell applications. This book is an important reference source for materials scientists, engineers, energy scientists, and electrochemists who are seeking to improve their understanding of how nanomaterials are being used to enhance the efficiency and lower the cost of DAFCs. Shows how nanomaterials are being used for the design and manufacture of DAFCs Explores how nanotechnology is being used to enhance the synthesis and catalysis processes to create the next generation of fuel cells Assesses the major challenges of producing nanomaterial-based DAFCs on an industrial scale

GET BOOK

Book Description :

This book presents practical information on the clinical applications of short pulse laser systems and the techniques for optimizing these applications in a manner that will be relevant to a broad audience, including engineering and medical students as well as researchers, clinicians, and technicians. Short pulse laser systems are useful for both subsurface tissue imaging and laser induced thermal therapy (LITT), which hold great promise in cancer diagnostics and treatment. Such laser systems may be used alone or in combination with optically active nanoparticles specifically administered to the tissues of interest for enhanced contrast in imaging and precise heating during LITT. Mathematical and computational models of short pulse laser-tissue interactions that consider the transient radiative transport equation coupled with a bio-heat equation considering the initial transients of laser heating were developed to analyze the laser-tissue interaction during imaging and therapy. Experiments were first performed to characterize the tissue optical properties needed to optimize the dose for thermal therapy. Experiments were then performed on animal models to characterize the heat affected zone for LITT. The experimental measurements were also validated using the computational models.
