Development of polymer based nanocomposite using electrospinning for sound absorption and isolation
Excessive noise has adverse effects on human health. Therefore, it is necessary to find innovative methods for decreasing the exposure to noise in the environment. Various materials are used for dampening noise. In order ...
Investigation of novel ammonia production options using photoelectrochemical hydrogen
Hydrogen and ammonia are two of the most significant clean fuels, energy carriers and storage media in the near future. Production of these chemicals are desired to be environmentally friendly. Renewable energy, in particular ...
Development of a new integrated sustainability assessment model for energy systems
This thesis presents a novel and comprehensive sustainability assessment model for energy systems. The model features an integrated approach and encompasses various multi-disciplinary areas of study, which influence energy ...
Optimization of residential buildings and renewable energy integration in small island developing states: the Bahamas as a case study
An optimization approach is used to assess the energy performance and design of residential homes in The Bahamas with the goal of providing objective data for policy makers to achieve the sustainability goals in the country. ...
Prediction of the off-road rigid-ring model parameters for truck tire and soft soil interactions
Significant time and cost savings can be realized through the use of virtual simulation of testing procedures across diverse areas of research and development. Fully detailed virtual truck models using the simplified ...
Partial separation of an azeotropic mixture of hydrogen chloride and water and copper (ii) chloride recovery for optimization of the copper-chlorine cycle
An atmospheric-pressure distillation system is designed and constructed to partially separate hydrochloric acid and water. The system concentrates HCl(aq) between the electrolyzer and hydrolysis steps of the Copper-Chlorine ...
Modelling, inspection, and post-processing of layer-based additive manufacturing surfaces to maintain product quality
Today’s Additive Manufacturing (AM) is mostly layer-based. Despite AM’s great capabilities in fabrication of complex geometries, product’s surface roughness is a limiting factor in many industrial applications. Therefore, ...
Design and analysis of a thermolysis reactor for scaled-up copper-chlorine hydrogen production cycle
Alternative hydrogen production methods are being explored with the goal of finding efficient and economical process. The copper-chlorine (Cu-Cl) cycle for hydrogen production has been the focus of the Clean Energy ...
A reliability-aware framework for service-based software development
It is becoming common to see software applications taking advantage of web services available publicly to meet their needs, rather than developing an in-house solution. This introduces the problem where failures can occur ...
