• An experimental investigation of a meter-scale flat-plate oscillating heat pipe 

    Wilson, Michael R. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)
    Ever-increasing demand for power in modern electronics presents challenge in thermal management. This paper shows the oscillating heat pipe (OHP) is considered a preferred solution for high heat application due to its heat ...
  • Heat transfer enhancement of vapor condensation heat exchanger 

    Rajab, Husam (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    A typical vapor condensation condenser consists of two major heat transfer processes, i.e., vapor condensation and forced convection. In order to enhance heat transfer, the condensation heat transfer utilizing the porous ...
  • Hybrid thermoelectric ejector refrigeration system 

    Obeng, Baffoe (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    A mathematical model is developed to predict the refrigeration performance of an ejector powered by waste energy from a thermoelectric cooler. The model is based on constant pressure mixing process and considers the effect ...
  • An investigation into thermoelectric coolers 

    Franklin, Eli David (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
    A thermoelectric cooler (TEC) is a type of cooler that uses the electricity between the junction of two materials to cause a temperature drop. These coolers operate using the Peltier effect. Effectively, a TEC uses electrical ...
  • Investigation of a flat plate oscillating heat pipe as a thermal spreader with centered heating 

    Johnson, Aaron (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
    Flat plate oscillating heat pipes are a relatively new and developing technology. They show much promise for advanced thermal management of current and future electronics cooling. However, while making them is easy, modeling ...
  • Theoretical and experimental study of an evaporative cooler embedded with parallel plates 

    Li, Suxing (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    In the current investigation, a theoretical model predicting the temperature variation of ambient air flowing through an evaporative cooler embedded with parallel plates was developed which can be used for both dry and wet ...
