Nanoparticle heat transfer and fluid flow by W. J Minkowycz ( )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The day of nanoparticles and nanofluids has arrived, and the applications of these media are legion. Here, attention is focused on such disparate applications as biomedical, energy conversion, material properties, and fluid flow and heat transfer. The common denominator of the articles which set forth these applications here is numerical quantification, modeling, simulation, and presentation. The first chapter of this volume conveys a broad overview of nanofluid applications, while the second chapter continues the general thermofluids theme and then narrows the focus to biomedical applications. Chapters 3 and 4 deepen the biomedical emphasis. Equally reflective of current technological and societal themes is energy conversion from dispersed forms to more concentrated and utilizable forms, and these issues are treated in Chapters 5 and 6. Basic to the numerical modeling and simulation of any thermofluid process are material properties. Nanofluid properties have been shown to be less predictable and less repeatable than are those of other media that participate in fluid flow and heat transfer. Property issues for nanofluids are set forth in Chapters 6 and 7. The last three chapters each focus on a specific topic in nanofluid flow and heat transfer. Chapter 8 deals with filtration. Microchannel heat transfer has been identified as the preferred means for the thermal management of electronic equipment, and the role of nanofluids as a coolant is discussed in Chapter 9. Natural convection is conventionally regarded as a low heat-transfer coefficient form of convective heat transfer. Potential enhancement of natural convection due to nanoparticles is the focus of Chapter 10"--Preface (P. vii)
Advances in numerical heat transfer by W. J Minkowycz ( )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Motivated by the upwelling of current interest in subjects critical to human health, [this book] presents the latest information on bioheat and biofluid flow. Like its predecessors, this volume assembles a team of renowned international researchers who cover both fundamentals and applications. It explores ingenious modeling techniques and innovative numerical simulation for solving problems in biomedical engineering. The text begins with the modeling of thermal transport by perfusion within the framework of the porous-media theory. It goes on to review other perfusion models, different forms of the bioheat equation for several thermal therapies, and thermal transport in individual blood vessels. The book then describes thermal methods of tumor detection and treatment as well as issues of blood heating and cooling during lengthy surgeries. It also discusses how the enhancement of heat conduction in tumor tissue by intruded nanoparticles improves the efficacy of thermal destruction of the tumor. The final chapters focus on whole-body thermal models, issues concerning the thermal treatment of cancer, and a case study on the thermal ablation of an enlarged prostate

Small-scale wind power : design, analysis, and environmental impacts by J. P Abraham ( )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In today's world, clean and robust energy sources are being sought to provide power to residences, commercial operations, and manufacturing enterprises. Among the most appealing energy sources is wind power-- with its high reliability and low environmental impact. Wind power's rapid penetration into markets throughout the world has taken many forms. In some cases, wind power is produced in large industrial wind farms by large horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWTs) that supply power directly to the grid. In other cases, wind power is produced more locally, at or near the site of power usage. In these cases, the wind is typically generated by smaller wind turbines that are in single-unit installations or in clusters of units. Regardless of the manifestation of the wind turbine systems, much thought must be given to the selection of the turbine, the economic viability of the installation, and the integration of the system to the connecting grid. It is the intention of this text to discuss these issues in detail so that appropriate decisions can be made with respect to wind power design, testing, installation, and analysis. The specific focus is on small-scale wind systems. While there is no universal definition of small-scale wind power, it generally refers to systems that produce only a few kilowatts, can be installed in constrained spaces, and have a small footprint

Les fonds de pension ( )
1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'article rappelle les motifs qui sont à l'origine de l'intérêt marqué pour la constitution de fonds de pension. Le vieillissement démographique et la crainte de voir l'Etat dans l'impossibilité de remplir à l'avenir ses obligations en matière de pension légale ont suscité au sein de l'entreprise des réflexions sur l'opportunité de constituer des systèmes de fonds de pension complémentaires. Parmi les systèmes possibles, à côté d'initiatives individuelles telles que la souscription à des assurances-vie ou des versements sur des comptes d'épargne-pension, la création de fonds de pension occupe une place de choix. Leur importance en Belgique devrait encore croître dans les prochaines années, à condition qu'ils puissent exercer leur activité dans un cadre juridique et fiscal jouissant d'une sécurité et d'une stabilité suffisantes

Fatigue de l'endettement : de la restructuration à la réduction des dettes du Tiers-monde ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'article étudie les mesures prises depuis 1985 pour résorber l'endettement des pays en développement et leurs résultats: Plan Baker en septembre 1985 (mise à disposition de fonds additionnels pour 15 pays fortement endettés sous condition de mise en place d'une politique d'ajustement sous l'égide du FMI); Sommet de Toronto en juin 1988 (rééchelonnement conditionnel des dettes pour 27 pays fortement endettés et à bas revenus); Plan Brady en mars 1989 (opérations de réduction de la dette coordonnées par un programme de "debt relief" appuyé par des ressources officielles pour 39 pays fortement endettés à revenus moyens). Il analyse les techniques d'allégement de la dette (le rachat de dettes ou "buy back", la conversion en actions ou "debt-to-equity swap", la conversion en obligations de sortie ou "exit-bond").--SCAD summary
