Comprehensive analysis in the journal "APL Materials" provides blueprint for making thermoelectric materials that convert heat and electricity with greater efficiency WASHINGTON, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- From your hot car to your warm laptop, every machine and device in your life wastes a lot of energy through the loss of heat. But thermoelectric devices, which convert heat to electricity and vice versa, can harness that wasted heat, and possibly provide the green...

Researchers studying how fluids travel through nanoscale channels were surprised to discover that the fluids don't flow equally well in all directions. Contrary to the behavior in the macroscale world, the researchers discovered that methyl alcohol, when it was placed in a network of nanoscale channels in a mineral known as a zeolite, diffused 1,000 times faster in one direction than another. This is the first known evidence of such highly unequal diffusion of molecules in a nanoporous...

The extended Coulomb failure stress (ECFS) criteria and anisotropic porosity and permeability tensor at micro/meso/macro scale under ultra"℠high temperature and pressure (UTP) conditions were developed employing the flow driven pore"℠network crack (FDPNC) model under multiple temporal"“spatial scales and the hybrid hypersingular integral equation"℠lattice Boltzmann method (HHIE"℠LBM). The correlation of the Zipingpu reservoir and Longmenshan slip was then...

Findings could aid in the development of better technologies for hydraulic fracturing and other fluid extraction techniques from the earth When geologists survey an area of land for the potential that gas or petroleum deposits could exist there, they must take into account the composition of rocks that lie below the surface. Take, for instance, sandstone"”a sedimentary rock composed mostly of weakly cemented quartz grains. Previous research had suggested that compaction...

Chemists from UCLA and South Korea report the "ultimate porosity of a nano-material," achieving world records for both porosity and carbon dioxide storage capacity in an important class of materials known as MOFs, or metal"“organic frameworks. MOFs, sometimes described as crystal sponges, have pores "” openings on the nanoscale which can store gases that are usually difficult to store and transport. Porosity is crucial for compacting large amounts of gases into small volumes and...
