  • Modeling Analysis of Fuel Sprays

    Current engine development processes in which computations play an important role have sought for numerical models which can accurately represent phenomena in spray combustion. The authors have developed original sub-models taking into account the effects of extensive spray combustion phenomena including nozzle cavitation, droplet breakup behavior, multi-component evaporation process, spray-wall ...

  • Methods of oil/fuel analysis

    PC GlobeCore can propose you to make a reclaiming test of yours example of fuel (oil) to verify the possibility of clean it. If the oil is contaminated and not suitable for use, filtration can be recommended. Or, you can also make this test by yourself using our laboratory/test-bench transformer oil vacuum regeneration system UVR. The regenerated samples exceeded yours expectations. Average ...

  • Analysis of alternative fuels

    The use of alternative fuels in the cement and building materials industries is becoming increasingly important. Alternative fuels enable cement manufacturers to control production costs and improve environmental performance – two very significant benefits for one of the world’s most energy intensive industries. If international targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions are to be met, then the ...

  • Optimizing Wind and Solar Power in Africa

    Editor's Note: The following is a news release authored by Julie Chao and issued by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on April 5, 2017 To meet skyrocketing demand for electricity, African countries may have to triple their energy output by 2030. While hydropower and fossil fuel power plants are favored approaches in some quarters, a new assessment by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence ...

  • Case Study: Monitoring Fuel Treatment with On-Site Fuel Analysis

    Version 8 of our industry leading SpectrOil Optical Emission Spectrometers offers significant performance improvements and enhanced productivity. In particular the sensitivity of the instrument has been improved markedly to allow detection of trace metals down to the part per billion (ppb) level. This capability is particularly important to power generators using liquid fuel, as high levels ...

  • Sample preparation for the analysis of secondary fuel in cement plants

    Secondary fuel can be a very inhomogeneous sample, containing all types of polymers, paper, wood and low fractions of metal. Also recycled wood or parts of automobile tires might be used as secondary fuel. Before using it as fuel in the production of cement, several chemical analyses are necessary as quality control. Cement is made by heating limestone (calcium carbonate), with small quantities ...

  • Consumption analysis of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    The characteristics of the Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) were introduced. The SOFC system can be divided into ten sections based on the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The fuel specific consumption was taken as the primary indicator to investigate the specific consumption for each section. The Energy-flow Framework Diagram (EFD) was undertaken to modify the system, such as controlling the operating ...

  • Magnetic Fuel Treatment Bottom Line Analysis

    BOTTOM LINE ANALYSIS This cost savings analysis was prepared in cooperation with Master Chief Hill of the US Coast Guard Maintenance & Logistics Command using data from the 82’ Cutter Pt. Chico, and 110’ Cutters Anacapa and Long Island over a period of two years when ALGAE-X® performance was monitored and evaluated. Installation of ALGAE-X® units in Diesel Engine applications results in ...

  • Thorium dioxide as a nuclear fuel: a scientometric analysis

    The present study is aimed at analysing the growth of publications on thorium dioxide (ThO2). INIS database is used as a source to analyse the focused areas of this field for the period 1970–2011. The database contained 2337 publications on thorium dioxide. The study analysed the broad features of literature on thorium dioxide, focusing on year–wise publications, highly ...

  • Biodiesel Analysis with Mid Infrared - From Feedstock to Fuel

    Introduction The biofuels industry is growing rapidly and so is the need for analysis to ensure quality product. The parameters for quality biodiesel require different types of instruments and measurement systems, such as gas chromatographs (GC), titrators, centrifuges, infrared spectrometers... Although claims are out there for the analyzer that will do it all, unfortunately there is no one ...

  • Fans and fuel

    One of the fun things about researching articles is how you can end up in a totally different place than where you started. A few weeks ago, I was working on a story for the October issue of HDT on oil and coolant analysis. That led to what I'm going to talk about today, which is fans and fuel economy. It started out when I was talking to Mike Tourville with Evans, which makes a waterless ...

  • Decomposition analysis of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion in selected countries

    This article introduces an approach applicable to analysing different factors influencing elements relevant in sustainable development like environmental impacts. The approach is built on the idea of IPAT identity and it applies a chained two-factor decomposition technique for calculating numerical estimates for a larger set of contributing factors than traditionally done in applying ...

  • Analysis methods for the determination of possible unseated fuel assemblies in BWRs

    This paper describes noise-based methods, the purpose of which is to determine whether the core of a Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) contains unseated fuel assembly(ies) or not. The characteristic feature of an unseated fuel assembly is to render the corresponding fuel channel thermal-hydraulically unstable since some of the coolant bypasses the fuel channel. The induced neutron noise has a strong ...

  • Exergy analysis of combustion characteristics and NOx emissions of a dual–fuel engine

    The combustion characteristics and NOx emissions of compression ignition engines working on a dual fuel mode are investigated numerically and their exergetic efficiencies are determined. The model has been validated with available experimental results. The simulation results show that dual fuel engine combustion and trend of NOx ...

  • Computational fluid dynamics analysis in microbial fuel cells with different anode configurations

    A key criterion in microbial fuel cell (MFC) design is that the bio-electrochemical reaction between bacteria and the bulk solution should occur evenly on the electrode surface in order to improve electricity generation. However, experimental optimization of MFC design over a wide range of conditions is limited. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technology makes it possible to evaluate ...

  • A structural decomposition analysis of air pollution from fossil fuel combustion in India

    During the last decade, there has been worldwide concern with global climate change, which has been induced by greenhouse gases (GHGs) due to the use of fossil fuels. The CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion have been identified as the single most significant source of GHG emissions into the atmosphere. Realising the need to control and regulate emissions of pollutants, the objective ...

  • Safety analysis of a VVER-440 spent fuel storage pool

    Numerical analysis has been carried out for the spent fuel pools of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), where the fuel assemblies are stored for several years after discharge from the reactor. The performed calculations covered both severe and design basis accidents. The results indicated that the spent fuel pool accidents may have severe consequences. For this reason new procedures have been ...
