Among experts, it is well-known that the thermal conductivity of PCMs (phase change materials) is low hence a major limitation for their commercial application. This work proposes alternative, inexpensive, but nevertheless effective solutions to increase the average thermal conductivity of a PCM system (a commercial paraffin wax, having a...

The integration of phase change materials (PCMs) and metal foam has been widely concerned recently. To decrease non-uniformity of uniform metal foam-PCMs, adaptive metal foam arrangement strategy with increasing porosity from inside to outside has attracted widespread attention. This work conducted a symmetric simulation model of vertical...

Research to analyse and/or develop novel materials and techniques is necessary to address competition and safeguard craftmanship in shipbuilding. In this master thesis, two new approaches to reduce the production and maintenance costs are studied: {metal foam core, metal face sheet} sandwich materials and corner adstir fillet stationary shoulder...

The hydrodynamic and acoustic fields for a NACA 0018 with solid and porous trailing edge inserts are investigated. The porous inserts, covering 20% of the chord, are manufactured with metal foams with cell diameters of 450 and 800 μm and permeability values of 6 × 10−10 and 2.7 × 10−9 m2. The experiments are performed at a chord-based Reynolds...

Studies on porous trailing edges, manufactured with open-cell Ni-Cr-Al foams with sub-millimeter pore sizes, have shown encouraging results for the mitigation of turbulent boundary-layer trailing-edge noise. However, the achieved noise mitigation is typically dependent upon the pore geometry, which is fixed after manufacturing. In this study,...

Worldwide yearly 800.000-1.000.000 people receive a total artificial hip. 8-9% Of all patients requires a second surgery to correct the primary arthroplasty. In more than 70% of cases, aseptic loosening is the cause for implant failure. Possible pathways leading to aseptic loosening are stress shielding and micro-motions. Stress shielding can be...
