1. Buckley, Robert Christopher. Development of an energy storage tank model.

Degree: 2012, University of Tennessee – Chattanooga

A linearized, one-dimensional finite difference model employing an implicit finite difference method for energy storage tanks is developed, programmed with MATLAB, and demonstrated for different applications. A set of nodal energy equations is developed by considering the energy interactions on a small control volume. The general method of solving these equations is described as are other features of the simulation program. Two modeling applications are presented: the first using a hot water storage tank with a solar collector and an absorption chiller to cool a building in the summer, the second using a molten salt storage system with a solar collector and steam power plant to generate electricity. Recommendations for further study as well as all of the source code generated in the project are also provided. Advisors/Committee Members: Dhamshala, Prakash R., Hiestand, James W., Kazemersky, Philip M., College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Subjects/Keywords: Solar collectors; Steam power plants

2. Coulter, Robert B. A low latency algorithm for the simulation of a binary distillation column using a spreadsheet.

Degree: 2015, University of Tennessee – Chattanooga

Increases in the run speed of readily available computing resources has significantly improved the performance of distillation design and simulation algorithms. Presented here is an algorithm for the simulation of a binary distillation column with a near instantaneous response of the output variables to changes in the input variables (low latency). A discussion of the evolution of distillation analysis methods in conjunction with the improvements in computing power is included. Emphasis is on the impact of these advanced methods on the demonstration and characterization of distillation concepts. A direction for the development of fast algorithms for the modeling of multi-component distillation systems is also discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Thomas, Tricia A.

3. Challa, Sashi Kiran. The effects of carbon nanotubes on cpu cooling.

Degree: 2009, University of Tennessee – Chattanooga

Computers today have evolved from being big bulky machines that took up rooms of space into small simple machines for net browsing and into small but complicated multi-core servers and supercomputing architectures. This has been possible due to the evolution of the processors. Today processors have reached 45nm specifications with millions of transistors. Transistors produce heat when they run. Today more than ever we have a growing need for managing this heat efficiently. It is indicated that increasing power density can cause a difficulty in managing temperatures on a chip. It is also mentioned that we need to move to a more temperature aware architecture. In this research we try and address the issue of handling the heat produced by processors in an efficient manner. We have tried to see if the use of carbon nanotubes will prove useful in dissipating the heat produced by the processor in a more efficient way. In the process we have also tried to come up with a repeatable experimental setup as there is not work that we have been able to find describing this exact procedure. The use of carbon nanotubes seemed natural as they have a very high thermal conductivity value. Also one of the uncertain aspects of the experiment is the use of carbon nanotubes as they are still under study and their properties have not been completely understood and there has been some inconsistency in the theoretical values of their properties and the experimental results obtained so far. The results that we got were not exactly what we expected but were close, and were in the right direction indicating that more work in future would show better and consistent results.
