Theoretical study of multi-stage and multi-feeding variable pressure humidification-dehumidification (VP-HD) desalination systems

Z. Rahimi-Ahar; M. Sadegh Hatamipour

Volume 21, Issue 1 , February 2024


  Humidification-dehumidification (HD) desalination has been identified as a sustainable, reliable, and energy-efficient technology for producing freshwater on a small scale. VP-HD systems operated at one-stage, multi-stage, and multi-feeding vacuum humidification-over atmospheric pressure dehumidification ...  Read More

Investigation on the Performance of Graphene-WO3-TiO2 Ternary Composite in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

N. Gilani; S. Fallahdoost Moghadam; Ali Akbar Y.

Volume 20, Issue 4 , January 2024


  A hydrothermal method was used to synthesize different photoanodes for dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) applications. These photoanodes included WO3, TiO2, Graphene-TiO2, WO3-TiO2, and a nanostructure of Graphene-WO3-TiO2. The morphology of the nanoparticles was analyzed using scanning electron microscopy ...  Read More

Simulation and optimization of energy in oil storage tanks using nanocomposite of phase change materials by Computational Fluid Dynamics

H. Amiri; A. Babapoor; M. Fallahi-Samberan; N. Azimi; A. Hadidi

Volume 20, Issue 2 , August 2023, , Pages 62-86


  Current research has simulated polymer oxide/metal oxide nanofibers (nanocomposites) through the COMSOL Multiphysics software. The oil was placed inside a cylindrical tank covered with a thin layer of phase change material nanocomposites. A combination of polyethylene glycol (PEG) as a the phase change ...  Read More

Investigating the Impact of Air Injection on the Thermal Performance of Helical Tube with Varying Helix Diameters: Downward Flow

M. Moaf; O. Alizadeh; A. R. pendashteh

Volume 19, Issue 2 , June 2022, , Pages 38-50


  In this experimental investigation, the heat transfer and pressure drop of helical tubes with various helical diameters have been studied considering air injections. The tube was rested in vertical form and was put under the constant heat flux. The flow had a downward form and the air was injected into ...  Read More

Conceptual Design of a Batch Process for the Production of Biodiesel from High Free Fatty Acid Feedstocks

A. Mohammadi; B. Ghobadian

Volume 19, Issue 1 , March 2022, , Pages 15-32


  A batch process was developed for the production of biodiesel from high free fatty acid feedstocks. The mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problem, caused due to applying the hierarchical procedure together with Malone’s algorithm for the conceptual design, was solved. Meanwhile, the optimum ...  Read More

Techno-Economic Optimization of a Continuous Process for the Biodiesel Production from Waste Vegetable Oils

Abbas Mohammadi; Barat Ghobadian

Volume 18, Issue 4 , December 2021, , Pages 20-35


  A continuous process was designed and optimized at a conceptual stage for the biodiesel production from waste vegetable oils. Unlike previous studies, the process was optimized taking into account the technical and economic considerations, simultaneously, to find the optimum operating conditions fort ...  Read More
