  • Second law analysis of compressible flow through a diffuser subjected to constant wall temperature

    This study presents the investigation of entropy generation in compressible turbulent flow of air through a diffuser. Constant temperature boundary condition is applied at the wall. Two-dimensional solution of velocity and temperature fields are obtained using the CFD code FLUENT. Regions of high entropy generation in the diffuser have been predicted. The desired inlet expansion angle ...

  • Can the U.S. get there from here? Using existing federal laws and state action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

    U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are expected to rise unless additional policy actions are taken. This report identifies a suite of policies that the Administration can pursue that do not require new legislation by the U.S. Congress. If pursued with “go-getter” level ambition, those policies can reduce U.S. emissions 17 percent below 2005 levels in 2020. Key Findings Without new ...
