Prediction of Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology in a 125 MW tangentially coal-fired subcritical thermal power plant for retrofitting in Bangladesh

A typical 125 MW tangentially coal-fired Barapukuria Thermal Power Plant (BTPP), Bangladesh has been scrutitinized considering air-firing (existing) and five different oxy-firing (OF) cases have been numerically investigated. For predicting the particle flow, radiative heat transfer and turbulence effects, discrete droplet method (DDM), discrete transfer radiation method (DTRM) and k–ϵ model is considered respectively. For homogeneous reaction for the devolatilization and heterogeneous reactions for the char oxidation process, a two steps reaction mechanism is considered. It is predicted that with the increase of cases from air-firing, level of oxiding elements are increasing in the main combustion zone due to enriched O2 level leading to complete combustion of the particles. It is also found that for OF 31 case, level of CO2 is close to the air-firing case. it has been found that wall temperature is comparatively higher for 100% loading and comparatively lower for 50% loading for almost all similar type of air or oxy-firing conditions. For 100% load, the wall temperature has been reached around 2900 K for OF31 case. It is predicted that air operation equivalent to oxy-firing have been found at < OF 30+ % (Flame temp), at = OF 30+ % (Convec Heat transfer) and at > OF 30+ % (radiative Heat transfer) respectively.

Investigation of thermal performance and entropy generation in a helical heat exchanger with multiple rib profiles using Al2O3-water nanofluid

This research aims to assess the in detail thermal performance and entropy generation of a helical heat exchanger with multiple rib profiles and coil revolutions using water-based Al2O3 nanofluid with 5% concentration. A steady-state computational fluid dynamic model was used in determining the thermal and hydraulic parameters. The numerical model was validated with a numerical study and an experimental study. Three multiple rib profiles (2 rib, 3 rib and 4 rib) and three different coil revolutions (10, 20 and 30) were considered to design nine cases of heat helical exchangers. The geometrical effect was assessed and further represented as the streamlines, isotherms, overall Nusselt number, friction factor, thermal enhancement factor, and entropy generation. It is found that with the growth of coil revolutions the overall heat transfer rate and friction factor rise. The most efficient heat exchanger found in terms of thermal enhancement factor is 3 rib 10 revolutions with the value of 1.34. The entropy generation increases with the rise of the coil revolution. The maximum entropy generation increased by 19.5% for varying the coil revolution with a constant rib profile. Finally, this study is a guide of choosing an efficient heat transfer in terms of thermo-hydraulic performance.

Improvement of an exhaust gas recirculation cooler using discrete ribbed and perforated louvered strip vortex generator

This CFD study represents the improvement of cooling performance of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) by adding newly designed vortex generators inside the engine space of an automobile. The simulation of EGR cooler model was validated comparing with the available data and a reasonable agreement has been observed. A total of twelve different shapes of proposed wing-type vortex generators were numerically investigated to compare the cooling effect of a single VG in the duct. For all the studies, a forward inclination angle of 135° was considered as it is the best inclination angle to get the highest vorticity. Among all, it was found that kite type wing VG provides the best cooling effect. Later, the VGs were arranged in several array configurations with 5 different pitch distances to find the best pitch distance. With the 3mm pitch distance in an array, among twelve different VGs, Gothic type wing VG showed the best performance in terms of cooling performance and 11% cooling improvement rather than a single placed VG was determined. A comparative study was carried out to highlight that Gothic type wing VG performed best in lowering the outlet temperature. Gothic type VG is 12% and 4% more effective than the discrete ribbed and perforated louvered strip VGs respectively.

Impact behavior of energy absorbing helmet liners with PA12 lattice structures: A computational study

This paper uses a computational approach to study the generation of new helmet designs with lattice liners made of polyamide12 (PA12) material. Three design possibilities and three distinct unit cell topologies were used to create the liners as the energy absorbing and dissipating part of the helmet. PA12 lattice samples were additively manufactured and tested under quasi-static and dynamic compression loads. The test data, showing ductile to brittle transition due to strain-rate effects, were used to validate the finite element models of the lattices. Simulations of the linear high energy and oblique impacts on the coupled headform and liner were carried out following the state-of-the-art helmet standard ECE R22.06. The findings of this study suggest that PA12 lattice liners have an excellent capability of reducing peak rotational acceleration. Many liners can outperform the protection levels offered by existing expandable polystyrene foam liners for single impacts, but at the expense of weight. The performance of the liners can be improved by choosing the topology in such a way that the stress can be distributed through the struts. Moreover, a lattice liner having a balanced energy absorption capability and stiffness would perform better than other lattice liners.

Thermal enhancement and entropy generation of an air-cooled 3D radiator with modified fin geometry and perforation: A numerical study

The increasing fuel prices have led researchers to work on the efficiency and development of heat-transferring devices. One such device is the hot water radiator, which is familiar in the domestic arena. The study aims to increase the efficiency and cooling performance of hot water 3D radiators by modifying the design of their fins and adding perforations for better fluid mixing. CFD simulations were carried out on the radiators with modified fin geometries (Wavy, Spike-rib, Cut-sections, Straight) and with two different intensities of perforation (19 and 38 perforations) for each case at varying inlet flowrates of the radiator. The numerical model in this study was validated with experimental work. The hydrothermal performance of each radiator was measured in terms of fin surface temperature, entropy generation, heat transfer rate, and thermal enhancement factor. The temperature distributions and fluid flow streamlines have also been shown. The results show that modifying the fin geometries augments the overall heat transfer rate by up to 131 % while perforating the fins boosts the rate to 134 %. Moreover, the radiation heat transfer is seen to have surpassed the convection heat transfer by 60–160 % for the modified radiator cases. Finally, the most efficient radiator is found based on the thermal enhancement factor, which is the spike-fin arrangement.

Multi-objective hydrothermal performance optimization of a microchannel heat sink equipped with delta winglet vortex generators using NSGA-II genetic algorithm

Microchannel heat sinks provide the solution to the ever-increasing heat flux generated from micro-electric components. In this study, performance optimization of a microchannel heat sink with delta winglet vortex generators was carried out based on the data obtained from numerical CFD simulations. A total of 192 design points were generated by altering the fluid velocity in terms of Reynolds number (Re), winglet width (Wd), length (Ld), and the angle of attachment of the winglet. The Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model coupled with Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm NSGA-II was used simultaneously to minimize the friction factor and increase the Nusselt number. The ANN model predicted the output values within the error limit of 10%. The Pareto optimal front generated by the algorithm contains the input parameters in the range 982 < Re < 988, 177  < Ld < 233 , 10  < Wd < 25 . Decision-making methods TOPSIS, LINMAP, and Shannon entropy were employed to calculate the optimal solution from the data set and the obtained points showcased 70%, 120% and 158% surge in Nusselt number while an increase of friction factor by 35%, 109%, and 140% respectively is reported. The Performance Evaluation Criteria (PEC) values obtained from the best solutions were 1.52, 1.72, and 1.92, respectively. Furthermore, the accuracy of the optimal solutions was verified numerically. The flow and thermal field of the microchannel are also analyzed, and results showed that the angle of attachment and width of the winglet played a crucial role in the overall performance.
