  1. A THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR A THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC/GENERALPURPOSE HEAT SOURCE POWER SUPPLY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIRECT ENERGY CONVERSION EMPLOYING GALLIUM-ANTIMONY THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC (TPV) CELLS CAN ACHIEVE CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER (W/KG) ABOUT TWICE AS HIGH AS THE ACHIEVABLE EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER FOR THERMOELECTRIC CONVERSION. ON THE OTHER HAND, THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS MUST OPERATE BELOW 350 K, VERSUS 550 K FOR THERMOELECTRIC CELLS. THE REDUCED OPERATING TEMPERATURE INCREASES T ...

  2. A POROUS METAL HEAT EXCHANGER TO COOL A MICROWAVE CAVITY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE POWER OUTPUT OF GYROTRONS USED IN THE FUSION PROGRAM IS LIMITED BY THE COOLING OF THE MICROWAVE CAVITY. EXISTING DESIGNS CAN EXTRACT A HEAT FLUX OF 1 TO 3 KW/CM(2). THE RUSSIANS HAVE REPORTED A FLUX OF 4 TO 5 KW/CM(2) USING POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER. POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER USES A THIN POROUS LAYER OF METAL POWDER UNDER A FACESHEET, WHICH IS BONDED TO A COOLANT SUPPLY/REMOVAL PLATE. THE LA ...

  3. A TORSIONAL RHEOMETER FOR MEASURING THE PROPERTIES OF COAL AND COAL SLURRIES

    SBC: Viscoustech Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROCESSES AND EQUIPMENT FOR HANDLING SOLIDS AND SLURRIES ARE QUITE INEFFICIENT WHEN COMPARED WITH EQUIPMENT THAT HANDLES LIQUIDS AND GASES. THIS IS LARGELY BECAUSE DESIGNERS DO NOT CLEARLY UNDERSTAND THE BEHAVIOR OF GRANULAR SOLIDS AND SLURRIES SUCH AS COAL-WATER SLURRIES. IN PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT, A TORSIONAL RHEOMETER THAT CAN BE USED TO MEASURE THE MATERIAL PROPERTIES OF GRANULAR SOLIDS S ...
