Pore network modeling of fibrous gas diffusion layers for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells
A pore network model of the gas diffusion layer (GDL) in a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell is developed and validated. The model idealizes the GDL as a regular cubic network of pore bodies and pore throats following ...
Heat Transfer Analysis Of Windows With Venetian Blinds: A Comparative Study
The potential to reduce building load and annual energy consumption is widely recognized in the use of shading devices to control solar gain. Consequently, the ability to include and model shading layers in complex glazing ...
OMG I can IM the QEII: Networking Through chat
Presentation slides as presented at the Newfoundland and Labrador Library Association (NLLA) Conference, 2007. Outlines virtual library reference program in the context of the QEII, a chat program offered at Memorial ...
A Simplified Method For Calculating The Effective Solar Optical Properties Of a Drapery
The use of draperies to control solar gain through windows is common in residential and commercial buildings and their potential for reduction of building peak load and annual energy consumption is recognized to be large. ...
Effect of Temperature and Pressure on Surface Tension of Polystyrene in Supercritical Carbon Dioxide
(ACS Publications, 2007-02-15)
The surface tension of polymers in a supercritical fluid is one of the most important physicochemical parameters in many engineering processes, such as microcellular foaming where the surface tension between a polymer melt ...
Bidirectional mapping between self-consistent field theory and molecular dynamics
(AIP Publishing, 2007-10-08)
A bidirectional mapping scheme that bridges particle-based and field-based descriptions for polymers is presented. Initial application is made to immiscible homopolymer blends. The forward mapping (upscaling) approach ...
