Carbon Nanotube Reinforced Composites

CNR Polymer Science and Technology

 

William Andrew Publishing, 2015.

ISBNs 9781455731954

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Carbon Nanotube Reinforced Composites introduces a wide audience of engineers, scientists and product designers to this important and rapidly expanding class of high performance composites. Dr Loos provides readers with the scientific fundamentals of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), CNT composites and nanotechnology in a way which will enable them to understand the performance, capability and potential of the materials under discussion. He also investigates how CNT reinforcement can be used to enhance the mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of polymer composites. Production methods, processing technologies and applications are fully examined, with reference to relevant patents. Finally, health and safety issues related to the use of CNTs are investigated.

Dr. Loos compares the theoretical expectations of using CNTs to the results obtained in labs, and explains the reasons for the discrepancy between theoretical and experimental results. This approach makes the book an essential reference and practical guide for engineers and product developers working with reinforced polymers – as well as researchers and students in polymer science, materials and nanotechnology.

A wealth of applications information is included, taken from the wide range of industry sectors utilizing CNT reinforced composites, such as energy, coatings, defense, electronics, medical devices, and high performance sports equipment.

  • Introduces a wide range of readers involved in plastics engineering, product design and manufacturing to the relevant topics in nano-science, nanotechnology, nanotubes and composites.
  • Assesses effects of CNTs as reinforcing agents, both in a materials context and an applications setting.
  • Focuses on applications aspects – performance, cost, health and safety, etc – for a wide range of industry sectors, e.g. energy, coatings, defense, electronics, medical devices, high performance sports equipment, etc.

Cleaning with Solvents

Methods and Machinery

 

William Andrew Publishing, 2014.

ISBNs 9780323225205

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

High-precision cleaning is required across many sectors, including aerospace, defense, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical processing, semiconductor/electronics, and more. In this comprehensive reference work, solvent cleaning equipment is thoroughly covered with a focus on the engineering details of its operation and selection. Key data is provided alongside practical guidance, giving scientists and engineers in multiple sectors the information they need not only to choose the correct machine in the first place, but also how to operate it effectively and efficiently.

Low emission open-top vapor degreasers, enclosed machines of the vacuum and pressurized type, cosolvent machines, and adsorption of "tailpipe emissions" are covered in detail and fully illustrated in color. This unique book covers material known by designers and manufacturers of solvent cleaning machines, but not collected and organized for the benefit of users.

The comprehensive coverage provided by John Durkee makes this book relevant and timely not only for readers who wish to know more about how solvent cleaning equipment works but also those who are under pressure from environmental regulators or corporate management to find effective alternatives and those engaged in non-solvent cleaning operations who are unsatisfied with their cleaning results.

  • Clear, straightforward explanations of how various types of cleaning solvents should be managed to clean parts
  • Full-color, hand-drawn illustrations and photographs of the important internal sections of solvent cleaning machines
  • Design calculations of operating parameters in solvent cleaning machines

Combustion

 

4th ed. Academic Press, 2007.

ISBNs 9780120885732

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Combustion Engineering, a topic generally taught at the upper undergraduate and graduate level in most mechanical engineering programs, and many chemical engineering programs, is the study of rapid energy and mass transfer usually through the common physical phenomena of flame oxidation. It covers the physics and chemistry of this process and the engineering applications—from the generation of power such as the internal combustion automobile engine to the gas turbine engine. Renewed concerns about energy efficiency and fuel costs, along with continued concerns over toxic and particulate emissions have kept the interest in this vital area of engineering high and brought about new developments in both fundamental knowledge of flame and combustion physics as well as new technologies for flame and fuel control.

*New chapter on new combustion concepts and technologies, including discussion on nanotechnology as related to combustion, as well as microgravity combustion, microcombustion, and catalytic combustion—all interrelated and discussed by considering scaling issues (e.g., length and time scales).
*New information on sensitivity analysis of reaction mechanisms and generation and application of reduced mechanisms
*Expanded coverage of turbulent reactive flows to better illustrate real-world applications
*Important new sections on stabilization of diffusion flames. For the first time, the concept of triple flames will be introduced and discussed in the context of diffusion flame stabilization

Combustion of Pulverised Coal in a Mixture of Oxygen and Recycled Flue Gas

 

Elsevier, 2015.

ISBNs 9780080999982

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Combustion of Pulverised Coal in a Mixture of Oxygen and Recycled Flue Gas focuses on a niche technology, combustion of coal in an oxygen rich environment, which is one approach to obtaining ‘clean coal,’ by making it easier to capture carbon that is released in the combustion process. Toporov’s book breaks ground on covering the key fundamentals of oxycoal technologies, which have not yet been covered in this depth.

Combustion of Pulverised Coal in a Mixture of Oxygen and Recycled Flue Gas summarizes the main results from a pioneering work on experimental and numerical investigations of oxyfuel technologies. It provides the theoretical background of the process, the problems to be faced, and the technical solutions that were achieved during these investigations.

  • Summarizes results from investigations of oxyfuel technologies performed at Aachen University, Germany
  • Provides theoretical background, as well as the primary problems of these technologies and how they can be solved
