High-temperature corrosion protection of gas turbine blades with micro-coatings and nano-coatings : simulation and experiments (2021)
Thesis
Kadir, A. (2021). High-temperature corrosion protection of gas turbine blades with micro-coatings and nano-coatings : simulation and experiments. (Thesis). University of Salford

Material degradation at high temperature is a serious problem in gas turbines in aircraft. In these systems, the expansion blades experience high temperatures ranging from 850 Celsius to in excess of 1000 Celsius. High temperature corrosion is very s...

Numerical study of nanofluid-based direct absorber solar collector systems with metallic/carbon nanoparticles, multiple geometries and multi-mode heat transfer (2021)
Thesis
Kuharat, S. Numerical study of nanofluid-based direct absorber solar collector systems with metallic/carbon nanoparticles, multiple geometries and multi-mode heat transfer. (Thesis). University of Salford

Nanofluids are complex colloidal suspensions comprising nanoparticles (metallic or carbon based or both) suspended in a base fluid (e.g. water). The resulting suspension provides demonstrably greater thermal performance than base fluids on their own...
