[ Watch the Video: Brownian Diffusion of a Colloidal Tetrahedral Cluster ] Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists are insatiable people. Their never-ending quest to know the “how” and “why” of every little thing has brought us where we are today. As a result of tireless research, scientists have found a way to deliver robotic rovers into space, what materials are more conducive to the transference of data, and what happens...

How Do You Boil Water Without Bubbles?

Watch the Video: Boiling Water Without Bubbles April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online How do you tell if water is boiling? You look for the bubbles, because every cook knows boiling water bubbles. But now, research from Northwestern University is turning that notion on its head. “We manipulated what has been known for a long, long time by using the right kind of texture and chemistry to prevent bubbling during boiling,” said Neelesh A. Patankar, professor...

Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology achieved a 17-percent increase in boiling efficiency by using an acoustic field to enhance heat transfer. The acoustic field does this by efficiently removing vapor bubbles from the heated surface and suppressing the formation of an insulating vapor film. As reported in the American Institute of Physics' (AIP) journal the Physics of Fluids, bubble removal was enhanced because the acoustic field induces capillary waves on the bubble, causing...

By adding an incredibly thin coating of alumina to a metal surface, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have doubled the rate that heat travels from a solid surface — such as a pot on a stove — into the liquid in the pot. The results are published in the American Institute of Physics' journal Applied Physics Letters. Pool boiling is the most common and familiar method of heating a container's contents, and is a remarkably efficient heat transfer method. The...

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...

  Bio-inspired coating resists liquids and could lead to a broad range of advances in fuel transport, anti-bacterial surfaces and more After a rain, the cupped leaf of a pitcher plant becomes a virtually frictionless surface. Sweet-smelling and elegant, the carnivore attracts ants, spiders, and even little frogs. One by one, they slide to their doom. Adopting the plant's slick strategy, a group of applied scientists at Harvard have created a material that repels just about any...

Infolytica Corporation today announced plans to include an extensive thermal analysis module in the next release of MotorSolve, which is due out by fall 2011. With this latest addition, it will be possible to evaluate the impact of temperature and different cooling methods on the performance of brushless, PMAC and induction machines. Montreal, QC (PRWEB) August 24, 2011 Infolytica Corporation today announced plans to include an extensive thermal analysis module in the next release of...

A new artificial surface inspired by floating seeds, which could provide an alternative to the toxic paints currently used to prevent fouling on ship hulls, has been developed by German scientists. Scientists from the Biomimetics-Innovation-Centre have developed a new anti-fouling surface based on a seed from a species of palm tree. "These plants have seeds which are dispersed by the ocean currents. As it is an advantage for these seeds to remain free of fouling to allow them to disperse...

Ship owners need accurate scientific data to support intelligent decisions on coating systems and hull cleaning intervals. MACSEA now offers an independent hull monitoring service designed to save fuel and reduce emissions by detecting the early onset of hull fouling. Stonington, CT. (PRWEB) April 06, 2011 Ship owners, ship operators, and ship managers realize that hull fouling causes drag-related speed loss and increased fuel consumption when more power is delivered in order to maintain...
