Induction heating of firebricks for the large-scale storage of nuclear and renewable energy
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
The lack of low-cost, large-scale energy storage is one of the biggest obstacles to the ongoing transition from an energy market dominated by fossil fuels to one dominated by nuclear and renewable energy. Storing energy ...
The development of autocatalytic structural materials for use in the sulfur-iodine process for the production of hydrogen
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
The Sulfur-Iodine Cycle for the thermochemical production of hydrogen offers many benefits to traditional methods of hydrogen production. As opposed to steam methane reforming - the most prevalent method of hydrogen ...
Separate effects of surface roughness, wettability and porosity on boiling heat transfer and critical heat flux and optimization of boiling surfaces
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
The separate effects of surface wettability, porosity, and roughness on critical heat flux (CHF) and heat transfer coefficient (HTC) were examined using carefully-engineered surfaces. All test surfaces were prepared on ...
