Thermal management of the thermochemical Cu-Cl cycle linked with industrial processes for hydrogen production
This thesis study develops, analyzes and evaluates three integrated systems using process heats available in industrial applications for hydrogen production via copper-chlorine (Cu-Cl) cycle. The first system consists of ...
Experimental investigation and evaluation of hybrid ammonia fuel options for power generators
This research thesis aims to make use of ammonia as a possible fuel source for power generators by performing an experimental study on a gasoline generator with an ammonia based gasoline fuel blend. Then, the combustion ...
Investigation of copper deposition on steel in molten copper chloride
Hydrogen is considered as the most prominent candidate for clean energy generation. The Copper Chloride (Cu-Cl) cycle has been chosen as an effective cycle for production of hydrogen due to its comparatively lower operating ...
Development and investigation of alkaline electrolyte based direct ammonia fuel cells
In the present thesis study, alkaline electrolyte based direct ammonia fuel cells are developed, and their performances are evaluated through various parameters and efficiencies, such as open circuit voltages, polarization ...
Development and experimental analysis of a novel hybrid cooling concept for electric vehicle batteries
In this thesis, a novel hybrid cooling concept for electric batteries is developed and studied at both the cell-level and pack-level experiments. The concept is based on a simple air-cooling duct that utilizes enhanced ...
Development of an integrated inspection system for additive and subtractive hybrid manufacturing
Using closed-loop inspection systems to modify coordinate metrology tasks for specific engineering applications has been a demanding research subject over the last decade. The objective of this thesis is to develop an ...
Passive damping mechanism of Herschel-Quincke tubes for pressure pulsations in piping systems
The acoustic pressure pulsations in industrial piping systems can induce fluctuating loads on inline equipment which may cause fatigue failure and in severe cases, initiate a phenomenon known as acoustic resonance. Passive ...
Design and analysis of an active underbody aerodynamic device for tractor trailers
At highway speeds, up to 65 % of the total energy used by large trucks is for overcoming aerodynamic drag. The underbody region of a tractor-trailer is responsible for up to 30 % of the aerodynamic drag on tractor-trailers, ...
Development and investigation of an ammonia synthesis reactor
Ammonia production has gained increasing attention in the last decade due to its importance as a feedstock and an energy carrier. In the present thesis study, two novel ammonia production systems are presented. The first ...
