Nanotech WOW! products are used as an anti-fouling coating on propellers. (PRWEB) May 23, 2013 Some unconventional anti-fouling prop treatments used by boaters have ranged from the use of Cayenne pepper, super super hot Mexican Sauce and even using lady's old tights over blades when the boat is not in use. Some boaters have even toyed with the idea of using Vaseline on the bottom of aluminum boats for protection. Helmar Distributors says that nanotechnology offers an easier solution to...

Validating Kolmogorov's Theory Of Turbulence - Modifications May Be Needed
2013-04-04 05:19:11

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman once declared that turbulence is “the most important unsolved problem in classical physics.” The phenomenon of turbulence is quite common, apparent in the flow of air in our atmosphere, or the rise of smoke from a cigarette. Yet, a mathematical description of turbulence has continued to escape scientists, despite having been studied for hundreds of years. In 1941 Soviet...

[ 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?
2012-09-14 05:02:11

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...
