Methane Storage In Activated Carbon Nanostructures : A Combined Density Functional And Monte Carlo Study
Natural gas is stored as compressed natural gas (CNG) in heavy steel cylinders under pressures of 200-250 atm. However, such a method of storage has certain disadvantages which include multistage compression costs, limited ...
Prediction Of The Mechanical Behaviour Of A Closed Cell Aluminium Foam Using Advanced Nonlinear Finite Element Modelling
Cellular materials like aluminum foam which is the subject of interest here are generally characterized by high energy absorption capacity per unit weight. Materials of this category can be ideal for applications such as ...
Whisker Growth from Electrodeposited Sn Coatings - Developing Materials Science and Mechanics Based Insights
Pure Sn and Sn-alloys are widely used in electrical and microelectronic devices as protective layer to prevent oxidation of Cu conductors and also as a component of Pb-free, Sn-based solders. Sn coatings, typically 0.5-10 ...
Design and Fabrication of Conjugated Molecule Based Resistive Sensor for Environmental Monitoring Detecting Targeted Analytes
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in air and heavy metal ions, anions, microorganism in water are environmental contaminants that require detection at certain low concentrations to avoid detrimental effects. Analytical ...
Bioremediation of Chromium : Mechanisms and Biosensing Applications
Water pollution, especially caused due to the indiscriminate release of heavy metals as a result of anthropogenic activities is a major concern worldwide. Chromium, a heavy metal, regardless of its commercial importance ...
Mechanical and Corrosion Properties of Selective Laser Melted Alloys
Selective laser melting (SLM) of metallic powders is an additive manufacturing technique that is widely employed to produce 3D components, and is fast becoming an important method for manufacturing near-net shape and complex ...
