Engineers Show How To Optimize Carbon Nanotube Arrays For Use In Hot Spots
2013-12-03 13:11:10

Stanford School of Engineering Experimental evidence and computer simulations suggest how to grow structures with the best trade offs between 3 desired characteristics: strength, flexibility and the ability to dissipate heat When engineers design devices, they must often join together two materials that expand and contract at different rates as temperatures change. Such thermal differences can cause problems if, for instance, a semiconductor chip is plugged into a socket that can't...

Old homes tend to be far less energy efficient than newer homes. SecuritySystemReviews.com has created a list of easy ways old home owners can improve energy efficiency, and be more environmentally-friendly. Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) November 30, 2013 Old homes are often full of charm and classic beauty, but they can also require a lot of maintenance and upkeep. Additionally, many old homes are also significantly less energy efficient than new homes because of things like insulation that...

Protecting Systems From Heat May Rely On Nano-Magnetic Fields
2013-11-21 08:30:42

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Generally, cooling systems rely on water pumped through pipes to remove unwanted heat. A research team from MIT and the University of Newcastle in Australia has discovered a method for enhancing heat transfer in such systems using magnetic fields. This new method could prevent hotspots that lead to system failures. The innovative new system, which relies on tiny particles of magnetite -- a form of iron oxide - could be applicable...

Heat Therapy
2012-12-31 12:08:31

Heat therapy is a treatment in the medical field to relieve pain and improve over health. It can be a therapy used only once, repeatedly in rehabilitation sessions, or as part of an after-care routine in sports medicine. It can be delivered in many forms with success in all. How the Heat Helps As heat is introduced to the area, the temperature will increase beginning from the outer layer and moving deeper into the tissues. After the change in temperature, the blood vessels in the area of...

Temperature Examination
2012-11-26 23:06:36

Taking a patient's temperature is an initial part of a full clinical examination. The moment the medical provider comes within inches of the patient’s skin, they can tell if there is a change in the patient’s temperature. Heat radiates from a febrile patient, skin becomes clammy when cardiac output is reduced, and cold skin can be an ominous sign when combined with other negative findings. Temperature is an important indicator for patient status. How the Temperature is Attained...

The bolometer, invented in 1878 by Samuel Pierpont Langley, measures the energy of incident electromagnetic radiation. It consists of an absorptive element connected to a heat sink through a thermal link. The absortive element raises its temperature above that of the heat sink when radiation impinges on it. The higher the energy the higher the temperature rises. Old bolometers used metals while newer ones used semiconductors and superconductors as the absorptive elements. Bolometers can...

Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from a gaseous form into liquid form. When the transition of matter happens from gaseous to solid directly, it is known as deposition. Condensation occurs when a vapor is cooled or compressed to its dew point. Water vapor that naturally condenses on cold surfaces into liquid is called dew. Water vapor will only condense on another surface when the temperature of the surface is cooler than the temperature of the water vapor. Water...

  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
  • A kind of cotton handkerchief having white spots on a colored ground, the spots being produced by a chemical which discharges the color.
This word is possibly named after Monteith (Monteigh), 'an eccentric 17th-century Scotsman who wore a cloak scalloped at the hem.'
