This book focuses on cases and studies of interest to mechanical engineers and industrial technicians. The considered applications in this volume are widely used in several industrial fields particularly in the automotive and aviation industries. Readers will understand the theory and techniques which are used in each application covered in each chapter.
Volume 2 includes the following topics:
Numerical investigation of turbulent slot jets with various nanoparticle shapes
Experimental study on a sweeping gas membrane distillation unit
Development of design processes for multi-spindle drilling using a neural network and expert systems
Experimental investigation of a new hybrid solar collector (PV/t) system
Theoretical study of the effects of combustion duration on engine performance
Effects of preheating temperature and fuel-air equivalence ratio on pollution control in hydrocarbon combustion
Numerical study of natural convection between two concentric ellipses with different shapes and imposed temperatures
Theoretical study of the geometrical parameters effect on the behavior of a solar chimney power plant
Numerical investigations of the effect of packed bed porosity on the flow behavior
Comparison between a conventional and a four-stage Savonius wind rotor
The presented case studies and development approaches aim to provide readers with basic and applied information broadly related to mechanical engineering and technology.
