Vortex generators (VGs) are effectively used to improve the performance of the wind turbine blades by means of flow control. VGs can be represented by local geometrical disturbance on the aerodynamic surfaces. This disturbance generates vortices in the streamwise direction, energizing the boundary layer and hence delaying or suppressing the flow...

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells operate at high temperatures, which places stringent requirements on the ceramic materials in these devices. Optimizing the design by thermal stress minimization could increase the life expectancy of a fuel cell. In order to do this it is important to have a detailed understanding of the heat flows and temperature profiles...
