    Abstract With the advances in micro total analysis systems (µTAS), the droplet-based microfluidics, which manipulates mini discrete droplets in an immiscible continuous phase to accomplish various detections, has been applied to many fields including medicine, pharmacy, fine-chemistry and biotechnology as it offers distinct advantages, such as small diffusion length, high-throughput, precise control and integratability [1]. As compared to the continuous-flow microfluidics, the samples in the droplet-based microfluidics are isolated by a defined droplet/continuous phase interface, avoiding the cross contamination and resulting in a controllable reaction environment.

    Abstract Hot dry rock (HDR), which is usually buried depth in 3-10 km, contains abundant heat energy for heating the house and making the electricity. Hydraulic fracturing is an effective technology to develop the geothermal resources. In hydraulic fracturing, a large amount of cold water is injected to generate the artificial fractures in subsurface. However, in previous studies, the study on the mechanical properties of HDR under the combined action of triaxial stress and pore pressure is still in its infancy and an exhaustive investigation is lacking. In this study, we experimentally investigated the heat-treated HDR samples with the integrated consideration… More >

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.22, No.3, pp. 149-150, 2019, DOI:10.32604/icces.2019.04963
    Abstract The isothermal drying of plant-based material, such as fruits and vegetables, is the most widely used drying technique to stabilize materiel and to increase their shelf life. However, drying is a high energy-consuming industry process, in which water removal obviously affects the quality of dried products. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the water migration mechanisms during drying for improving energy efficiency and ensuring better quality.
    Plant-based material generally has highly porous characteristics, and the major part of the water (about 80-90%) is present in the intracellular space, but not in the intercellular (pore) space. There are three pathways… More >

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.22, No.3, pp. 152-153, 2019, DOI:10.32604/icces.2019.05005
    Abstract The problem of fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media is one common phenomenon in industrial production and daily life. Numerical simulation for the above problem can provide a realistic understanding of transport processes and thus can help to optimize energy consumption. However, in the macroscopic model of fluid flow and heat transfer, the convergence rate of traditional numerical methods is usually poor as the hygroscopic properties of porous media.

    Zhenchuan Wang1,2, Ruina Xu2, Peixue Jiang2,*
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.22, No.3, pp. 154-154, 2019, DOI:10.32604/icces.2019.05023
    Abstract Deeply analysis and prediction of turbulent convection heat transfer of supercritical pressure fluid in one-side non-uniform heating vertical tube plays a major role in system design and security. The Over-prediction of convection heat transfer of supercritical pressure fluid in vertical tube is attributed, at least partly, to the invalid of turbulent model on simulating the buoyancy effect. The present paper adopt an improved turbulent model, which is validated suitable to three dimensional model, to simulate flow and heat transfer of supercritical pressure water in vertical non-uniform heating tube. Heat transfer deterioration phenomenon occurs in non-uniform heating condition, while the degree… More >

    Numerical Study of the Convective Heat Transfer Within the Hold of an Oil Tanker Subjected to Rolling Motion

    Sheng Jia, Guojun * Yu**, Yanting Geng, Lizhi Zhang
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.22, No.3, pp. 155-155, 2019, DOI:10.32604/icces.2019.05100
    Abstract Crude oil tanker usually encounters rolling motion during sea transportation, which leads to a rotational movement and sometimes a sloshing for the liquid hold. This rolling-induced body motion seriously affects the thermal and hydraulic behavior of liquid hold, which then affects the heating process and heat preservation of the tanker. Clarification of the involved thermal and hydraulic characteristic is the basic requirement for establishment of a scientific heating scheme and heat preservation method. Numerical simulation for such a problem faces challenges in terms of free liquid surface movement, rotational acceleration and shear-dependent viscosity (non-Newtonian behavior) of the liquid.

    Abstract The pseudo-potential lattice Boltzmann (LB) phase change model has been widely applied in the simulation of liquid-vapor phase change problem. In the simulation, the LB method are applied in modeling of both two-phase flow and the energy transition. However, Li et al. [Physical Reviews E 96, 063303 (2017)] pointed out that the LB thermal equations cause errors when applied with pseudo-potential model. To eliminate these errors, they proposed an improved model by adding correction terms in the LB thermal equation. In their research, the treatment of these correction terms is quite complex and several finite-difference (FD) computations are adopted to… More >

    Numerical Analysis on the Thermal Responses of Near-Critical Fluid to Transient Cooling Process

    Lin Chen1,*, Atsuki Komiya2, Shigenao Maruyama2,3
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.22, No.3, pp. 169-169, 2019, DOI:10.32604/icces.2019.05885
    Abstract The heat transfer of near-critical fluids has become a key topic as the transcritical/supercritical energy systems are more and more proposed in recent years. When fluids go across the critical point or the equilibrium curve in the phase boundaries in the critical region, dramatic changes happen in fluid properties. For example, the thermal diffusivity goes to zero and the compressibility diverges. Such effects introduce additional complexibility in thermal systems with supercritical fluids (heat exchanger, turbines, reactors, etc.). For the efficiency analysis in heat transfer and stability in small-scale, the current numerical study is proposed. In this study, non-equilibrium cooling process… More >
