    The Paraffin Crystallization in Emulsified Waxy Crude Oil by Dissipative Particle Dynamics

    Ruiqiong Wang1, Tiantian Du2, Jinchen Cao2,*, Guoqiang Wang3

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 129-139, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2024.047825

    Abstract With the advancement of oilfield extraction technology, since oil-water emulsions in waxy crude oil are prone to be deposited on the pipe wall, increasing the difficulty of crude oil extraction. In this paper, the mesoscopic dissipative particle dynamics method is used to study the mechanism of the crystallization and deposition adsorbed on the wall. The results show that in the absence of water molecules, the paraffin molecules near the substrate are deposited on the metallic surface with a horizontal morphology, while the paraffin molecules close to the fluid side are arranged in a vertical column More >

    Impact of Crosswind on Steady-State and Dynamic Performance of Natural Draft Dry Cooling Tower Group: A Numerical Analysis

    Xuhui Jiang1, Xi Zhang1, Song Wang1, Ruiqiong Wang1, Peng Zou1, Jingzhou Lu2, Xiaoxiao Li2,*

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 193-216, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.046832

    Abstract This study investigates the performance of a natural draft dry cooling tower group in crosswind conditions through numerical analysis. A comprehensive three-dimensional model is developed to analyze the steady-state and dynamic behavior of the towers. The impact of wind speed and direction on heat rejection capacity and flow patterns is examined. Results indicate that crosswinds negatively affect the overall heat transfer capacity, with higher crosswind speeds leading to decreased heat transfer. Notably, wind direction plays a significant role, particularly at 0°. Moreover, tower response time increases with higher crosswind speeds due to increased turbulence and More >

    Effects of Viscous Dissipation and Periodic Heat Flux on MHD Free Convection Channel Flow with Heat Generation

    Mustafa Abdullah*

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 141-156, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2024.046788

    Abstract This study investigates the influence of periodic heat flux and viscous dissipation on magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow through a vertical channel with heat generation. A theoretical approach is employed. The channel is exposed to a perpendicular magnetic field, while one side experiences a periodic heat flow, and the other side undergoes a periodic temperature variation. Numerical solutions for the governing partial differential equations are obtained using a finite difference approach, complemented by an eigenfunction expansion method for analytical solutions. Visualizations and discussions illustrate how different variables affect the flow velocity and temperature fields. This offers comprehensive More >

    Numerical Studies on Thermal and Hydrodynamic Characteristics of LNG in Helically Coiled Tube-in-Tube Heat Exchangers

    Fayi Yan*, Xuejian Pei, He Lu, Shuzhen Zong

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 287-304, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.045038

    Abstract As compact and efficient heat exchange equipment, helically coiled tube-in-tube heat exchangers (HCTT heat exchangers) are widely used in many industrial processes. However, the thermal-hydraulic research of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the working fluid in HCTT heat exchangers is rarely reported. In this paper, the characteristics of HCTT heat exchangers, in which LNG flows in the inner tube and ethylene glycol-water solution flows in the outer tube, are studied by numerical simulations. The influences of heat transfer characteristics and pressure drops of the HCTT heat transfers are studied by changing the initial flow velocity,… More >

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.1, No.2, pp. 1-10, 2010, DOI:10.5098/hmt.v1.2.3007

    Abstract An experimental investigation of the Critical Heat Flux (CHF) and heat transfer coefficient (HTC) of two-phase heat transfer of de-Ionized (DI) water, pool boiling was conducted using several kinds of sintered copper microparticle porous uniform and modulated structures. The modulated porous structure reached a heat flux of 450 W/cm2 and a heat transfer coefficient of 230,000 W/m2K. The thick and thin uniform porous structures achieved CHFs of 290 W/cm2 and 227 W/cm2 , respectively, and heat transfer coefficients of 118,000 W/m2K and 104,000 W/m2K. The mechanisms for the dramatically improved CHFs and HTCs were identified with assistance of More >

    Abstract Multi-phase lattice Boltzmann method is applied to investigate liquid water transport in th GDL and GC. The liquid water transport processes in the GDL, near the GDL-GC interfaces and in the GC are discussed. The effects of channel land on liquid water dynamic behaviors and distribution in the GDL and GC are investigated. It is found that channel land covers the GDL-GC interface where liquid water reaches changes the water distribution near the GDL-GC interface and in the GC. While channel land is apart from the GDL-GC interface where liquid water reaches changes the effects More >

    Spatio-temporal pattern detection in spatio-temporal graphs

    Use case of invasive team sports and urban road traffic

    Kamaldeep Singh Oberoi1, Géraldine Del Mondo2

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.31, No.2, pp. 377-399, 2022, DOI:10.3166/RIG.31.377-399c2022

    Abstract Spatio-temporal (ST) graphs have been used in many application domains to model evolving ST phenomenon. Such models represent the underlying structure of the phenomenon in terms of its entities and different types of spatial interactions between them. The reason behind using graph-based models to represent ST phenomenon is due to the existing well-established graph analysis tools and algorithms which can be directly applied to analyze the phenomenon under consideration. In this paper, considering the use case of two distinct, highly dynamic phenomena - invasive team sports, with a focus on handball and urban road traffic,… More >

    Classification and clustering of buildings for understanding urban dynamics

    A framework for processing spatiotemporal data

    Perez Joan1, Fusco Giovanni1, Sadahiro Yukio2

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.31, No.2, pp. 303-327, 2022, DOI:10.3166/RIG.31.303-327©2022

    Abstract This paper presents different methods implemented with the aim of studying urban dynamics at the building level. Building types are identified within a comprehensive vector-based building inventory, spanning over at least two time points. First, basic morphometric indicators are computed for each building: area, floor-area, number of neighbors, elongation, and convexity. Based on the availability of expert knowledge, different types of classification and clustering are performed: supervised tree-like classificatory model, expert-constrained k-means and combined SOM-HCA. A grid is superimposed on the test region of Osaka (Japan) and the number of building types per cell and More >

    Codelivery of anti-CD47 antibody and chlorin e6 using a dual pH-sensitive nanodrug for photodynamic immunotherapy of osteosarcoma


    Oncology Research, Vol.32, No.4, pp. 691-702, 2024, DOI:10.32604/or.2023.030767

    Abstract Osteosarcoma is a malignant tumor originating from bone tissue that progresses rapidly and has a poor patient prognosis. Immunotherapy has shown great potential in the treatment of osteosarcoma. However, the immunosuppressive microenvironment severely limits the efficacy of osteosarcoma treatment. The dual pH-sensitive nanocarrier has emerged as an effective antitumor drug delivery system that can selectively release drugs into the acidic tumor microenvironment. Here, we prepared a dual pH-sensitive nanocarrier, loaded with the photosensitizer Chlorin e6 (Ce6) and CD47 monoclonal antibodies (aCD47), to deliver synergistic photodynamic and immunotherapy of osteosarcoma. On laser irradiation, Ce6 can generate More > Graphic Abstract

    Abstract Recent advances in thermodiffusion (Soret effect) in binary and higher multicomponent liquid mixtures are reviewed. The mixtures studied include the hydrocarbon, associating, molten metal and semiconductor, polymer, and DNA mixtures. The emphasis is placed on the theoretical works, particularly models based on the nonequilibrium thermodynamics, although other approaches such as the statistical, kinetic and hydrodynamic approaches are discussed as well. For each mixture, the major theoretical and experimental works are discussed and the research trends and challenges are addressed. Some of the challenges include a need for combining various methods to develop a comprehensive theoretical More >
