CEE 213βDeformable Solids The Mechanics Project
Arizona State University CP 3βProperties of Areas
1
Computing Project 3
Properties of Areas
The computing project Properties of Areas concerns the computation of various properties
of cross sectional areas. In each of our theories (i.e., axial bar, torsion, and beams) we arrive
at a point where we need certain properties of the cross section to advance the analysis. For
the axial bar we needed only the area; for torsion we needed the polar moment of inertia;
for the beam we will need moment of inertia of the cross section about the centroid of the
cross section.
We can develop an algorithm that allows the computation of all of the properties of a cross
section if the cross section can be described as a polygon. The algorithm is built on formulas
for the properties of a triangle. What that program will do is create a triangle from the
origin and the two vertex nodes associated with a side of the polygon. Whether this polygon
adds or subtracts from the accumulating properties will be determined from the vectors
defining the sides of the polygon (see the CP Notes for further clarification). If you loop
over all of the sides, the end result will be the properties of the entire cross section.
The general steps are as follows:
1. Develop a routine that allows you to describe the cross section with a sequence of
points numbered in a counterclockwise fashion starting with 1. The last point
should be a repeat of the first one in order to close the polygon. Some suggestions:
a. Store the (x,y) coordinates of each point in a single array x(N,2), where N
is the number of points required to describe the cross section (including
the repeat of the first point as the last point) and the first column contains
the x values of the coordinate and the second column contains the values
of the coordinate and the second column contains the y value.
b. It will eventually be a good idea to put the input into a MATLAB function
and call the function from your main program. That way you can build up
a library of cross sectional shapes without changing your main program.
c. If you need a negative area region (for a cutout section like in an open
tube) then number the points in that region in a counter-clockwise fashion.
Just keep numbering the vertices in order (no need to start over for the
negative areas).
2. Develop a routine to loop over all of the edges of the polygon and compute (and
accumulate) the contributions of the triangle defined by the vectors from the origin
to the two vertices of the current side of the triangle (that gives two sides) and the

vector that points from the first to the second vertex (in numerical order). Calculate
the area, centroid, and outer-product contributions to the properties (see the CP
Notes for clarification of this issue).
3. Compute the orientation of the principal axes of the cross section using the eigenvalue
solver in MATLAB (eig) on the moment of inertia matrix J. See the CP
4. Create an output table (print into the Command Window) giving the relevant cross
sectional properties. Develop a routine to plot the cross section. Include the location
of the centroid of the cross section in the graphic (along with lines defining
the principal axes if you can figure out how to do that).
5. Generate a library of cross sections, including some simple ones (e.g., a rectangular
cross sections) to verify the code. Include in your library as many of the following
cross sections as you can get done:
a. Solid rectangle with width b and height h.
b. Solid circle of radius R.
c. Rectangular tube with different wall thickness on top and bottom.
d. I-beam with flange width b, web depth d, flange thickness tf, and web
thickness tw.
e. Angle section with different leg lengths and leg thicknesses.
f. Circular tube with outside radius R and wall thickness t.
g. T-beam.
6. Use the program to explore aspects of the problem. For example,
a. Why is it more efficient to use an open circular tube for torsion rather than
a solid cylinder?
b. For beam bending we can control deflections and reduce stresses with a
large moment of inertia about the axis of bending. Show the trade-offs
available in an I-beam when you can select different web and flange depths
and thicknesses. What is the ideal allocation of material? Why would we
never actually do that in practice?
c. Demonstrate that the principal axes of a symmetric cross section lie along
the lines of symmetry. You can do this by showing that the off-diagonal
elements of J are zero for symmetric sections with axes so chosen.
d. Explore any other feature of the problem that you find interesting.

# Design of Power system for a Data Center_http://customwritings-us.com/orders.php

Design of Power system for a Data Center

A data center with the dimension of 40ft Long x 30ft Wide x12ft High is located on the 12th floor of a high rise building in downtown Chicago, IL.Β Β  The data center must operate all the time regardless of the availability of power from the utility. The loads can be categorized as high, medium and low critical. Table 1 shows the power rating of each cabinet and the critical level of each load.Β  The cabinets are 12-ft wide x 6-ft High x 2-ft deep. Four of these cabinets must be strategically placed in the room to obtain the best heat exchange at minimum cost. The cooling registers are located on the floor and the exhaust registers are placed on the ceiling as shown in Figure 1. The cooling cost per BTU is \$0.01. Each cabinet generates 30,000 BTU per hour and heat must be removed to operate properly. The cost of electricity is \$0.1 per kilowatt-hour. Exhaust fan can help to remove heat faster.Β  A 1000 cfm require a 1 hp motor.

Each highly critical load must be supported by 5 sources of power; such as one utility, 2 UPS and two generators.

Medium critical loads require utility, UPS and two generators.

Low critical loads require utility, UPS and a generator.

Select the sizes for of the two generators to provide power to the racks as well as cooling for High and Medium Critical loads.

The UPS must be able to withstand 20 minutes for Medium and low and 1 hour for High Critical Loads.

Determine the depth of Discharge and battery sizes and type using Table 2 information.

UPS costs \$750.00/Kw for 20 minutes operation.

This assignment is set out in two parts, where the first part should help you build the second. You will be allocated one from each of a-e, A-E, and 1-4 (as defined below) to ensure you have an individual set of data for the assignment.
PART 1: IDEAL STANDARD RANKINE CYCLE (50% of marks)
You are required to analyse a standard Rankine cycle by both hand calculation and using the simulation package CyclePad, in order to validate the software. The cycle specifications are as follows:
ο· Boiler pressure: (a) 40; (b) 45; (c) 50; (d) 55 bar; (e) 60 bar (as assigned).
ο· Boiler output temperature: (A) 450; (B) 500; (C) 525; (D) 550ο°C; (E) 575ο°C (as assigned).
ο· Condenser pressure: (1) 0.6; (2) 0.65; (3) 0.7; (4) 0.75 bar (as assigned).
Assume the mass flow rate is 1 kg/s, so that derived work and heat quantities are specific (i.e. per kg of steam). Use a summary table to compare the following:
ο· The specific enthalpy at each point in the cycle, determined both by hand calculation, and by CyclePad.
ο· The net work (Wnet).
ο· The heat in (Qin).
ο· The thermal efficiency (Ξ·th).
PART 2: REHEAT RANKINE CYCLE (50% of marks)
*** You should perform this analysis using CyclePad only. ***
In order to improve the net work output and efficiency of the plant, you are required to investigate the implementation of a two-stage reheat Rankine cycle (as covered in class). Use the same pressures and temperature assigned in Part 1. However, you must choose a pressure for the second stage i.e. the lower pressure turbine and explain how you chose it.
For your chosen design, use another summary table to compare the quantities listed above, obtained from the CyclePad analysis of the reheat Rankine cycle.
More detailed submission requirements are summarised overleaf.
(i) You can download a free copy of CyclePad from the following link. If you have any trouble obtaining it, email me and I will send you a copy.
(ii) You will find a Rankine Cycle Solved in the CyclePad library. Use this to help you get started with the first part of the assignment. It comprises four parts: heater, turbine, cooler and pump, corresponding to the boiler, turbine, condenser and feed pump, respectively.
(iii) Note that both heater and cooler are modelled as isobaric (i.e. constant pressure), and both turbine and pump are modelled as adiabatic and isentropic.
(iv) In the second part, you can use the Reheating Vapor Cycle Solved in the library as a template.

Part 1: Drag coefficient for flow around a sphere
Using the tutorial provided concerning air flow around a sphere as a basis, you are required to
validate the SolidWorks flow simulation software. To do this, derive the drag coefficient CD at the
following Reynolds numbers: 1 10, 100, 10,000, and 100,000.
You will be required to compare your values with those shown in Fig. 1 (final page). To do this you
may use Fig. 1 and superimpose your values, plotted by hand. You should submit this as part of
Part 2: Flow over a cone
Develop a flow simulation for a three dimensional cone pointed into the airflow, as represented by
Fig. 2. You should create a three dimensional cone with the value of the half-vertex angle (Ξ΅)
assigned to you. This is the angle measured from the centreline of the cone to one of its walls, also
shown in Fig. 2. You should also derive the value of the drag coefficient CD, for a Reynolds number
anywhere in the range 105 and 106.

# CHEG 3300 β Mass Transfer-Mechanistic Engineering Approach to Improve Mass Transfer in Unit Operations

Project Work (CHEG 3300 β Mass Transfer)
Mechanistic Engineering Approach to Improve
Mass Transfer in Unit Operations
Submission due dates: March 13 and April 21
Project Description
A chemical engineer has a task to enhance the hydrodynamic and mass transfer rate in the fluid by
developing a mechanistic engineering approach to vary the physical properties of the fluid,
intensify the absorption and diffusion process. One of the approaches could be incorporating
nanofluids or nanoparticles to enhance the performance of gas absorption systems. The principal
advantages of using nanoscopic fluids or nanoparticles are: (a) amount of chemical absorbents can
be decreased (b) tower or column height can be reduced, both by achieving larger mass transfer
coefficients with nanoscopic fluids or particles. The major objective of this project work is to
propose a comprehensive mass transfer model to enhance the mass transfer rate either in a packed
bed column or a plate column.
Investigate how to enhance the gas side mass transfer coefficient. Thoroughly investigate various
operating conditions by specifying the characteristic parameters of the system in the first step.
Consider a laminar flow for both the compressible gas and incompressible fluid. The effects of
pressure and concentration on the physical properties of the gas phase must be studied. It is
important in the first step to achieve the equilibrium state for the interacting components.
Investigate the transport properties such as molecular diffusion to achieve the state. Thoroughly
study the thermodynamics in the solution and how to accomplish the equilibrium steady states by
sequentially investigating the properties of the system, variables, parameters to be evaluated and
their corresponding boundary conditions to understand the contributions, limitations of latent heat
and sensible heat combined with hydrodynamic properties to maintain the equilibrium throughout
the column height.
Mass transfer coefficients can be influenced by the forces acting on the Brownian motions of the
nanoparticles. The direction of flow must be towards the interface. Your approach should be
directed towards increasing the mass transfer coefficients in the column resulting in larger
diffusion flux of the gas into the liquid phase. Consider the residence time distribution in the
column. For example, an increase in the gas flow rate reduces the residence time. Mass transfer
rate can be enhanced because of the large reaction rate. Facilitating larger liquid velocity closer to
the gas-liquid interface is another phenomenon that can enhance the mass transfer rate. Overall,
liquid flow rate plays an important role in the column performance.
Natural convection heat transfer of nanofluids can be considered. You should study the
advantages of using nanofluids compared to conventional micro fluids and how the volume
fraction of nanofluids has an advantage over the micro fluids. Study the heat conductivity
coefficient, enthalpy changes that limit the enhancement heat transfer of nano and micro fluids.
For example when compared to water, nanofluids deteriorate the convection heat transfer
(determined by the volume fraction). Also please note that the heat conductivity coefficient cannot
compensate for the increasing viscosity of the nanofluid. A continuity equation combined with
momentum equation (relating the above behavior) can be evaluated in terms of thermal
conductivity, specific heat and temperature of mixed nanofluid. Enhancement heat transfer can be
accomplished at high temperature differences. The driving force initially is derived from the
temperature difference. Adding nanoparticles not only increases the heat conductivity but also
increases the viscosity of the fluid which creates the viscous forces for the natural convection heat
transfer. At low temperatures, viscous forces play a major role for heat conduction. Therefore the
heat transfer performances at lower temperatures will be worse than the higher temperatures. You
also need to study on how to increase the collisions between these nanoparticles to increase
convection heat and mass transfer. Please note: (a) driving forces increase with temperature
difference (b) dynamic equilibrium in an equilibrium process can be at steady state, but a steady
state need not be in equilibrium in the irreversible process.
Assumptions: Assume that the mixed nanofluid is a continuous medium. There is no motion slip
between nanoparticles and fluids. But there should be thermal equilibrium between nanoparticles
and the mixed fluid. Neglect the effects of column shape, type of material and any presence of
rotating magnetic fields. Assume that the liquid phase composed of nanofluids is a homogeneous
continuous medium. Use fluid mechanics and hydraulic concepts to explain the hydrodynamic
behavior of the column. The liquid and gas flow counter currently in the column. The same
approach can be generalized for the entire column. In its standard state, the enthalpy change of
formation of any element has to be zero. (Note: Enthalpy is proportional to temperature change
or temperature gradient, only in an adiabatic process. An isothermal process will have enthalpy
change). The system has to be in dynamic equilibrium to achieve steady state.
Propose a continuity equation which captures the above phenomena mentioned for an
incompressible liquid phase and a compressible gas phase.
1. Assuming laminar flow, propose an equation of motion for the gas phase.
2. What can be the species continuity equations for liquid and gas phases in the column (nonconductive
systems)?
3. How do we derive the driving force for the overall mass diffusion flux? Use Fickβs law
combined with flow factors of the fluid.
4. Propose a gas phase and a liquid phase mass transfer model which explains the overall
phenomenon at the interface.
