Electro refining is one of the important step in the Pyro processing nuclear spent fuel with molten salt. The electro refiner is a process vessel consists of anode ,cathodes and stirrers and ultra –high pure argon gas is provided at the top for inert atmosphere and at the bottom a cadmium layer is provided. The vapor pressure of the cadmium is high at the operating temperature, the cadmium vapor ...

Puffing of biomaterials involves mass, momentum and energy transport along with large volumetric expansion of the material. Development of physics-based models that can describe heat and moisture transport, rapid evaporation and large deformations can help understand the puffing process. In this context, a fundamentals based study of salt-assisted puffing of rice is described. A multiphase model ...

This work investigates the ablation of a copper surface caused by the irradiation of a 220 ns laser pulse. Our focus is on the heat transport within the copper and takes the proceeding vaporization of surface substance into account. Our model ignores plasma dynamics and simulates the energy deposition using a surface heat source. The underlying absorption coefficient is made temperature ...

It is now a well known that the next generation devices in many fields of the semiconductor industry will be based on 3D architectures. In this framework, low thermal budget annealing technological solutions are required. For many applications, either in the field of sensors, microprocessors or high density memories, the Laser Thermal Annealing (LTA), an ultrafast and low thermal budget process, ...

Multi-Scale and Multi-Dimensional (MSMD) modeling approaches have been proposed to simulate the thermal, electrical distributions and concentration behaviors of large size pouch cell. This approach is based on coupling of the energy balance with the Newman’s electrode model. Newman’s 1D electrochemical model is often used for small size batteries but not sufficient enough for large size where ...

This paper is a preliminary design study to develop a hybrid atmospheric icing sensor which have an adequate potential to detect an icing event, icing type and icing rate together with icing load. The physics to detect icing event and icing type have been numerically understood using Debye analytical model. Also the conductivity variations in the Debye model have been understood using modified ...

The use of LEDs package for lighting presents a thermal problem. In fact, 70% of the energy consumption is converted to heat. This affects widely the LEDs performance especially lifetime and luminous efficiency. Thermal management of LED is interested in natural convection cooling. The heat sink geometry and its design is important to ensure good heat transfer. Nevertheless, the control of the ...

Simulated Thermal Response Test (TRT) data are analyzed in order to evaluate the effect of the tridimensionality model’s feature in determining the proper value of the soil thermal conductivity and borehole thermal resistance. The 3D system’s simulation during the TRT is realized by adopting the finite element method. The comparison of the numerical results with the analytical ...
