  • This paper presents a detailed literature survey of various types of low and intermediate temperature concentrating collectors. The survey includes a Patent search (mostly novel concentrators) and examines the progress in the area of concentrating collectors since 1978. This is the first part of a two part study. Part two will deal with flat plate collectors. Review of the published literature shows a considerable decline in solar energy research in the 80`s, directly related to a decline in general research and development support for alternative energy. Most of the recent significant developments have been in the area of high temperaturemore » systems and power towers. The objective of this survey is to summarize developments in the area of low to intermediate temperature collectors and provide this information in an organized manner. The authors will trace the progress of work done since the energy crisis of the seventies and examine what can be done to renew interest in solar energy collection. This is especially relevant now that the world`s attention is being increasingly focused on the environment. High temperature central receiver systems, for electric power generation, will be briefly discussed.« less
  • A survey is made of recent studies concerned with the prediction of incompressible turbulent swirling flows in axisymmetric flow domains with irregular boundaries. Information discussed is of interest to industrial furnace and gas turbine combustor designers. Highlights of recent studies concerned with the prediction of incompressible turbulent swirling flows are given. Axisymmetric flow domains with irregular boundaries are emphasized, typical of those in industrial furnaces and gas turbine combustion chambers. The background information discussed is of interest to designers and developers. The study is divided into two parts. The first is devoted to the presentation of recent advances in numericalmore » methods relative to fluid flow and heat transfer computations; the second is aimed at reviewing relevant experimental and theoretical investigations of turbulent swirling flows.« less
  • Dangerous pressure excursion incidents in industrial refrigeration systems have been caused by condensation-induced shock and vapor-propelled liquid slugging; however, some of the mechanisms responsible for initiating these hydraulic transients remain unclear. In this paper, simple descriptions of these shock-initiating conditions are given, and a thorough survey of the related technical literature is provided. The main contribution of this work is a literature database for practitioners and researchers interested in condensation-induced shock and vapor-propelled liquid slugging in refrigeration systems.
  • The nucleate pool boiling process is inherently a complex phenomenon. This complexity is in part related to the random behavior of the bubbles near the heating surface, strong property related boiling mechanism and other parameters such as the nucleation site density, bubble growth rates, bubble dimensions, and bubble rise velocity. To date no comprehensive model or correlation exists that can collectively represent all the characteristics of nucleate boiling. Most of the efforts for modeling the nucleate pool boiling phenomena invariably necessitate a fundamental knowledge of bubble frequency, bubble departure diameter, and nucleation site density. Due to irreproducibility of the boilingmore » phenomena, it is very difficult to present these aspects by a general equation using parameters such as working fluid property or surface condition. From an engineering point of view, the demands are for practicality of a correlation while providing satisfactory accuracy. The objective of this paper is to provide a critical survey of the available design correlations on nucleate pool boiling heat transfer. The paper is given in two parts. Discussion of the most commonly known general correlations for nucleate pool boiling is given in part 1. In part 2 correlations with special use will be presented and discussed. Results for independent testing of selected correlations are also given in part 2.« less
  • Naphthenic acid corrosion is a growing concern for refineries processing crudes containing high levels of naphthenic acid. Due to this concern initiatives in place to better understand the mechanism of corrosion for mitigating the corrosion. During the 1996 Fall Corrosion Group, organized existing literature relevant to the literature search. Committee Week, NACE International many refineries have and evaluate methods T-8 Refining Industry a task group, T-8-22, to perform a review and compilation of naphthenic acid corrosion. This paper provides a summary of the literature research.
