Evaporative drying of cupric-chloride droplets in a thermo-chemical cycle of hydrogen production
This thesis develops analytical and numerical solutions that predict behavior of Cupric-Chloride droplets undergoing spraying and drying processes. Cupric-Chloride (CuCl2) is present as molten salt and slurry within the ...
Energy, exergy and cost analyses of nuclear-based hydrogen production via thermochemical water decomposition using a copper-chlorine (Cu-CI) cycle
In this thesis the Copper-Chlorine (Cu-CI) thermochemical cycle and its components as well as operational and environmental conditions are defined, and a comprehensive thermodynamic analysis of a Cu-CI thermochemical cycle, ...
Heat and fluid flow analysis in a molten CuCl heat exchanger
The Cu-Cl thermochemical cycle is a promising method to generate hydrogen as a clean fuel for human use in the future. The cycle can be coupled to nuclear reactors to supply its heat requirements. The cycle generates ...
