A CFD analysis of the pressure drop through misaligned Stirling engine regenerators
Experiments were conducted to discover the average misalignment in wire mesh regenerators, and it was found that regardless of the intended stacking arrangement, the average misalignment was 44% to 49%. A 3-dimensional CFD ...
Thermal characterization and modeling of an energy storage system
The thesis reports a virtual design tool that was developed to predict and analyze thermal loads in an electric vehicle charging system. The tool was designed using computational fluid dynamics techniques and validated ...
