Numerical study of aerodynamic characteristics in steady laminar supersonic flow over a double wedge airfoil is carried out using commercially available finite element based CFD tool COMSOL Multiphysics. The aerodynamic characteristics of double wedge airfoil like lift and drag are analyzed by solving Navier-Stokes equations in the flow field for various thickness to chord ratios (t_c) and angle ...

In this paper, we have proposed an impedance biosensor based on polymer nanowire (made of polyaniline) for efficient electric field mediated capture of biomolecules. Existing polymer nanowire based biosensors fail to achieve high sensitivity for low surface to volume ratio as the whole length of the nanowire is exposed to the analyte .Also biosensors are dependent on diffusion mediated capture of ...

Induction furnaces are employed for vacuum distillation process to recover heavy metals after electro-refining operation. Induction furnace of suitable heating rate and cooled by passive means are required to be developed for this purpose. It is planned to set up a mock up induction furnace which will simulate the conditions to be realized in actual vacuum distillation furnace for this purpose. ...

This work presents the study of spiral RF MEMS switch which has low actuation voltage due to spiral structure. This work is inspired by the superior performance of electrostatic RF MEMS switches over the conventional state-of-the-art solid-state devices and the potential applications in communication field. The customary high actuation voltage limits the reliability and applications especially in ...

Vibration and Dynamic performances of the rotating machinery are conventionally evaluated based on the dominant structural forces such as the centrifugal forces. The increase in rotational speed, miniaturization and performance, demands for improved and accurate evaluation of the vibration performance. The inclusion of coupled effects of fluid and centrifugal forces can contribute significantly ...

Low cost high energy density batteries that can be charged and discharged rapidly are required in a number of applications. Tapping energy from renewal resources such as solar, wind and tide requires rapidly generated energy to be first stored and then used round the clock. Storing energy of a moving vehicle as it slows down and recovering it to accelerate the vehicle later can significantly ...
