    Study on Rotational Effects of Modern Turbine Blade on Coolant Injecting Nozzle Position with Film Cooling and Vortex Composite Performance

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.21, pp. 1-31, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.045510
    Abstract The flow structure of the vortex cooling is asymmetrical compared to the traditional gas turbine leading edge cooling, such as the impingement cooling and the axial flow cooling. This asymmetrical property will affect the cooling performance in the blade leading edge, whereas such effects are not found in most of the studies on vortex cooling due to the neglect of the mainstream flow in the airfoil channel. This study involves the mainstream flow field and the rotational effects based on the profile of the GE E3 blade to reveal the mechanism of the asymmetrical flow structure effects. The nozzle position… More >

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.21, pp. 33-46, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.041829
    Abstract An ultra-thin flattened heat pipe has been developed with a centered wick structure. This structure is essential to make the heat pipe thinner. However, the centered wick structure reduces the evaporation and condensation surface areas of the wick structure because it is sandwiched between heat pipe walls. In this study, because detailed discussion has not been made, heat transfer experiments were conducted for the wick structure sandwiched between two solid walls. This study focused on the evaporation heat transfer characteristics from the sandwiched wick structure. The experiments were conducted with three wick structures, that is, strip-shaped sintered copper powders with… More >

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.21, pp. 47-63, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.045134
    Abstract The calculation of heat and humidity load serves as the cornerstone of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) design. Nevertheless, as the heat and humidity load characteristics of underground structures differ substantially from those of above-ground structures, it is a challenge to derive their accurate calculation procedure through engineering experience. Therefore, it is particularly important to carry out quantitative research on heat and humidity load. This study used Design Builder software to study the influence of the design state point of air conditioning in underground buildings on energy consumption. The study showed that compared with the single design temperature of… More >

    Abstract Simulation of fluid-flow topology and thermal behavior in a round tube heat exchanger (RTHX) installed by three V-rib sets is reported. The expected phenomena for the rib installation are the generated vortex flow, impinging flow, greater fluid blending and thermal boundary layer disturbance (TBLD). These phenomena are key causes of the augmentation of heat transfer potentiality and thermal efficiency of the RTHX.

    Use of Statistical Tools for Comparison between Different Analytical and Semi-Empirical Models of the Bleve Fireball

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.21, pp. 125-140, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.041832
    Abstract The Bleve is an explosion involving both the rapid vaporization of liquid and the rapid expansion of vapor in a vessel. The loss of containment results in a large fireball if the stored chemical is flammable. In order to predict the damage generated by a Bleve, several authors propose analytical or semi-empirical correlations, which consist in predicting the diameter and the lifetime of the fireballs according to the quantity of fuel. These models are based on previous experience, which makes their validity arbitrary in relation to the initial conditions and the nature of the product concerned. The article delves into… More >
