The current need to ensure an effective and prompt transition of the energy sector towards zero-carbon has renewed the interest for nuclear technology. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) seem particularly interesting for their reduced capital cost, operational flexibility and enhanced safety and security. Different SMR concepts are being developed...

A new simulation tool has been developed to provide insights into the refueling process of hydrogen. The tool is based on existing models, including a 0D gas model and a 1D wall model, which have been refined to assist companies like Future Proof Shipping, which rely on compressed hydrogen tanks. Although the model is still subject to changes...

The low thermal conductivity of phase change materials (PCMs) has limited their widespread use in practical applications. In the present study, different fin structures, namely, rectangular, perforated, and pin were examined to analyze the thermal performance of the melting process in rectangular latent heat storage tanks. Experiments were...

Amidst the rise in fossil fuel consumption and the global energy crisis, there is a growing demand for clean, environmentally friendly, and sustainable energy solutions in industrial processes. One promising approach is to substitute conventional working fluids in power cycles with supercritical fluids. Over recent decades, substantial research...

Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers (GPHEs) are a sub-class of heat exchangers that enable heat transfer between 2 fluids via metal plates. A common problem encountered in all heat exchangers is fouling. Fouling can be described as the deposition and accumulation of unwanted materials such as scale, algae, suspended solids and insoluble salts on a...

This thesis explores the application of Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) technology to observe temperature gradients and turbulent eddies within and above a forest vegetation layer. Atmospheric temperature gradients tie directly to heat transfer, a primary mode of which are turbulent eddies. The goal in studying these elements is to enhance...

The main problem in density-based two-fluid optimization is the fact that the two fluids often mix in optimal designs. Therefore, state-of-the-art two-fluid heat exchanger optimization includes non-mixing constraints. However, the current non-mixing constraints can only impose a constant wall-thickness between the two fluids. Depending on the...

This thesis aims to investigate the effects of contact pressure and type of deformations on the thermal contact conductance(h’) for dry metal-metal contacts. Also, an attempt is made to develope a thermal contact conductance estimation model for the same. The materials used in this thesis are metals (aluminium and tin). Several experiments are...

Hybrid structures consisting of FRP(fiber reinforce polymer) composite decks<br/>connected to a steel girder superstructure are gaining more attention by combining the stiffness of steel members with good fatigue endurance and high strength to weight ratio of FRP. However, when composite material FRP is exposed to elevated temperature,...

Solving conjugate heat transfer design problems is relevant for various engineering applications requiring efficient thermal management. Heat exchange between fluid and solid can be enhanced by optimizing the system layout and the shape of the flow channels. As heat is transferred at fluid/solid interfaces, it is crucial to accurately resolve...

Printed circuit heat exchangers (PCHE) are designed to improve heat recovery and energy saving in supercritical CO<sub>2</sub> (S-CO<sub>2</sub>) power cycles. In the current study, a modified channel PCHE is proposed based on the regular straight channel and a zigzag channel. The thermal–hydraulic performance of four different types of PCHE...

We develop a multiscale simulation strategy, namely, algebraic dynamic multilevel (ADM) method, for simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer in fractured geothermal reservoirs under varying thermodynamic conditions. Fractures with varying conductivities are modeled using the projection-based embedded discrete fracture model (pEDFM) in an...

High concentration NH<sub>3</sub>/H<sub>2</sub>O is suitable for Kalina cycles used for the recovery of low grade heat. Plate heat exchangers (PHEs) are compact and reduce the charge of working fluid. This paper investigates the condensation of NH<sub>3</sub>/H<sub>2</sub>O with NH<sub>3</sub> mass concentrations of 80%-96%. The vapor and...

The HIsarna off-gas system wall is a cooling jacket made of cooling pipes arranged in the radial direction and in a circular pattern. Part of the off-gas system cooling pipes are isolated using a low-thermal-conductivity refractory material to protect the cooling pipe from melting and thermal stresses. During long runs and due to...

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...

Fracture distribution plays a significant role in the behavior of subsurface environments, affecting such activities as geothermal production, exploitation and management of groundwater resources, and long-term storage of nuclear waste and carbon dioxide. A key challenge in these and other applications is to estimate the fracture network...

Effectiveness of catalytic processes using heterogeneous biocatalysts depends not only on the activity of the enzyme, but also on the efficiency of the used reactor. In this paper, we present a novel design of a basket reactor with a stationary catalyst bed (StatBioChem). The developed design was compared to a commercially available rotating...

Thermal energy storage is increasingly needed in a sustainable world because of its potential of capturing waste heat and being incorporated in solar power plants. For power generation, in particular, as turbine technology advances, a demand for higher temperature thermal energy storage materials also grows. For this purpose, latent thermal...

Interest in biogas has increased due to natural gas shortages and the energy transition. Most digesters in the EU have internal heating for process stability. Unheated reactors could potentially lower costs, but have decreased kinetics due to low operational temperatures, especially in winter. This raises the question how seasonal temperature...
