  • How Does a Thermal Flowmeter Work?

    A thermal flowmeter works by measuring the total mass flow rate of a fluid flowing through a pipe or duct. In a thermal flowmeter’s simplest working configuration, fluid flows past a heated thermal sensor and a temperature sensor. As the molecules of the fluid flow past the heated thermal sensor, heat is lost to the flowing fluid. The thermal sensor cools down while the temperature sensor ...

  • Radiation exergy: the case of thermal and nuclear energy

    This study presents several methods to evaluate the exergy of thermal and nuclear radiation. First, a general treatment is developed for the thermal radiation exergy flux. Second, the exergy of thermal radiation is derived from a simple, general, original thermodynamic argument. Third, the state of the art concerning the accurate upper bounds for the conversion efficiency of thermal radiation ...

  • Exergy analysis of thermal comfort

    Traditional methods of human thermal comfort are based on the first law of thermodynamics. These methods use an energy balance of the human body to determine heat transfer between the body and its environment. By contrast, the second law of thermodynamics introduces the concept of exergy. It enables the determination of exergy consumption within the human body dependent on personal and ...

  • Thermal energy from drinking water and cost benefit analysis for an entire city

    The municipality of Almere is planning to develop a new carbon neutral neighbourhood. The area is located close to a treated water storage facility. By extracting enough thermal energy to provide 900 homes with energy for space heating and heating tap water, the temperature of the treated water is lowered by 1.16 °C. This could lead to an increase in the energy required to heat water for ...
