Reticulate porous ceramics employed in high-temperature processes are characterized for heat and mass transfer. The exact 3D digital geometry of their complex porous structure is obtained by computer tomography and used in direct pore-level simulations to numerically calculate their effective transport properties. Two-point correlation functions and(More)
A reacting packed-bed undergoing a high-temperature thermochemical solid-gas transformation is considered. The steam-and dry-gasification of carbonaceous materials to syngas is selected as the model reaction. The exact 3D digital geometrical representation of the packed-bed is obtained by computer tomography and used in direct pore-level simulations to(More)
A thermal transport phenomena model for the decomposition of a CO<sub>2</sub> sorbent particle under concentrated solar irradiation is used to evaluate four approximate engineering models for the surface radiative properties of the particle. The radiative property models are formulated by considering the solid-phase to be opaque or semi-transparent and the(More)
The effects of pore size on direction-averaged radiative properties of three-dimensionally ordered macroporous (3DOM) cerium dioxide (ceria) particles are investigated in the spectral range of 0.3-10 μm. The particles are of spherical shape and contain interconnected pores in a face-centered cubic lattice arrangement. The porous particle is modeled as a(More)
The performance of a new high-flux solar simulator consisting of 18 × 2.5 kW el radiation modules has been evaluated. Grayscale images of the radiative flux distribution at the focus are acquired for each module individually using a water-cooled Lambertian target plate and a CCD camera. Raw images are corrected for dark current, normalized by the exposure(More)
Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) are widely used for biomedical applications due to unique optical properties, established synthesis methods, and biological compatibility. Despite important applications of plasmonic heating in thermal therapy, imaging, and diagnostics, the lack of quantification in heat generation leads to difficulties in comparing the heating(More)
