Droplets and Sprays Simple Models of Complex Processes Book Excerpt:

This book acts as a guide to simple models that describe some of the complex fluid dynamics, heat/mass transfer and combustion processes in droplets and sprays. Attention is focused mainly on the use of classical hydrodynamics, and a combination of kinetic and hydrodynamic models, to analyse the heating and evaporation of mono- and multi-component droplets. The models were developed for cases when small and large numbers of components are present in droplets. Some of these models are used for the prediction of time to puffing/micro-explosion of composite water/fuel droplets — processes that are widely used in combustion devices to stimulate disintegration of relatively large droplets into smaller ones. The predictions of numerical codes based on these models are validated against experimental results where possible. In most of the models, droplets are assumed to be spherical; some preliminary results of the generalisation of these models to the case of non-spherical droplets, approximating them as spheroids, are presented.

Heating and Evaporation of Multi Component Fuel Droplets Book Excerpt:

This book documents pioneering mathematical models introduced for the simulation of multi-component droplets heating and evaporation processes which are implementable into commercial CFD codes. These models, described as 'multi-dimensional quasi discrete' (MDQD) and 'discrete-component' models, were applied to automotive fuel droplets in experimentally measured internal combustion engine conditions for biodiesel, diesel, and gasoline fuels. For instance, it is shown that the suggested models lead to accurate predictions of temperatures and evaporation times in typical diesel and gasoline engine conditions. Such models have also reduced CPU time about 85% compared with cases when classical approaches are used.

Thermal Energy Storage with Phase Change Materials Book Excerpt:

This book focuses on latent heat storage, which is one of the most efficient ways of storing thermal energy. Unlike the sensible heat storage method, the latent heat storage method provides much higher storage density with a smaller difference between storing and releasing temperatures. Thermal Energy Storage with Phase Change Materials is structured into four chapters that cover many aspects of thermal energy storage and their practical applications. Chapter 1 reviews selection, performance, and applications of phase change materials. Chapter 2 investigates mathematical analyses of phase change processes. Chapters 3 and 4 present passive and active applications for energy saving, peak load shifting, and price-based control heating using phase change materials. These chapters explore the hot topic of energy saving in an overarching way, and so they are relevant to all courses. This book is an ideal research reference for students at the postgraduate level. It also serves as a useful reference for electrical, mechanical, and chemical engineers and students throughout their work. FEATURES Explains the technical principles of thermal energy storage, including materials and applications in different classifications Provides fundamental calculations of heat transfer with phase change Discusses the benefits and limitations of different types of phase change materials (PCM) in both micro- and macroencapsulations Reviews the mechanisms and applications of available thermal energy storage systems Introduces innovative solutions in hot and cold storage applications

Flow Assurance Solids in Oil and Gas Production Book Excerpt:

The precipitation and deposition of solids are a major challenge in the production of oil and gas. Flow assurance solids are formed because of unavoidable changes in temperature, pressure and composition of the oil-gas-water flowstream, from reservoir conditions to processing conditions. The advent of subsea production and the increased exploitation of heavy crudes have made flow assurance issues dominant in ensuring efficient and safe exploitation of hydrocarbon assets. Five troublesome flow assurance solids are described in the book: asphaltene, paraffin wax, natural gas hydrate, naphthenate and inorganic scale. These big-five solids are presented in stand-alone chapters. Each chapter is designed to be readable without clutter. Derivations of equations and descriptions of supporting details are given in several appendices. The book is intended for professional engineers and natural scientist working in E&P companies, engineering companies, service companies and specialized companies. An understanding of the big-five solids is required throughout the lifetime of oil and gas assets, from early development to abandonment. The technical, safety and environmental risks associated with deposition problems in near-wellbore formations, production tubing, wellhead equipment, flowlines and processing facilities, are relevant for decisions in the oil and gas industry and in outside regulatory and financial entities.

Thermophysical Properties of Refrigerants Book Excerpt:

Halogenated derivatives of simple hydrocarbons, like chloro-and fluoromethanes and -ethanes, are important chemicals in many industries for example as working media in organi~ Rankine cycles and refrigerating pro cesses. Although there are ecological reasons against using these substances, it is expected that they cannot be substituted in all cases. But optimizing the processes in which these substances have to be used can also contribute to minimizing the possible damage. This book summarizes the extensive experimental material available on the thermodynamic properties of 16 pure and mixed halogenated hydrocarbons, so that it can easily be used both by process and design engineers. The project was initiated by the late Professor Dr.-Ing. Eberhard Bender and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E.h. H.D. Baehr. We would like to express our gratitude especially to Prof. Baehr for his continuing interest and to Springer-Verlag for their patience. Besides the authors, quite a large number of students contributed to the completion of the book. Among them we are most obliged to Mr. L. Hoffmann and Mr. F. Strepp for their assistance in preparing tables, diagrams and charts. We hope that this book will prove to be useful to many colleagues, and we welcome proposals, advice, and comments.

Ionic Liquids Properties and Applications Book Excerpt:

Sustainability, defined as the way to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future ones to meet their own, is one of the main challenges of modern society. Within this context, chemistry plays a significant role, and solvent nature as well as its environmental impact are pivotal issues frequently addressed. Ionic liquids, i.e. organic salts that have melting temperatures lower than 100 °C, have been frequently hailed as alternatives to conventional organic solvents. Their greenness has been mainly ascribed to their low vapor pressure and flammability. However, in addition to this, their high solubilizing ability and low miscibility with conventional organic solvents frequently allow for reducing the amount used, as well as for their recycling. Ionic liquids, especially the ones featured by aromatic cations, are frequently described as “polymeric supramolecular fluids” constructed through the establishment of feeble but cooperative supramolecular interactions like Coulomb and π-π interactions, as well as hydrogen bonds. In general, ionic liquids are also indicated as “designer solvents” as it is possible to tailor their features to specific applications by simply modifying their cation or anion structure. In this way, small changes in the ion’s structure can give rise to solvents showing very different properties. The above premises widely justify the growing interest in the properties and applications of ionic liquids, seen in recent literature (according to Scopus, more than 27,000 papers published in the last five years have “ionic liquids” as a keyword). Thanks to their properties, they have been variously used as solvent media, solvents for the obtainment of gel phases, components in the building of dye-sensitized solar cells, media for the preparation of thermochromic materials, etc. This Research Topic aims to present how structural features can determine not only the properties of ionic liquids, but also their possible employment. In this latter case, the interest arises from their ability to affect the outcome of a given reaction in terms of rate, yield, and nature of the products obtained for general use in the field of materials chemistry. This article collection is dedicated to Prof. Kenneth R. Seddon for his outstanding contribution to the formation and development of the ionic liquids community.
