Multiphysics Study of Forced Convection Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) Problem
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
This paper presents a problem undergoing conjugate heat transfer (CHT). Conjugate heat transfer problems are common is domestic heating/cooling, industrial heat exchangers, cooling of electronics (e.g. PC fans). It is to be noted that in conjugate heat transfer problems, the convection part of the heat transfer is dominated.<p> In the given study, a hypothetical case is built where a heat source (a ...
Baseline levels of oxidative stress biomarkers in species from a subtropical estuarine system (Paranaguá Bay, southern Brazil)
(Peer reviewed, 2016-08-10)
Offshore petroleum exploration has increased the risks of oil spills in coastal tropical and subtropical habitats. Monitoring tools are needed to assess and protect environmental health. We determined baseline values of antioxidant biomarkers (CAT, SOD, GPx, GST, MDA) for five ecologically relevant species in a subtropical system in southern Brazil. Regional baseline levels are compared with literature ...
The Distribution of Heavy Metals in the Sediment of Low Tidal Flat, Eastern Chongming Island, China
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
The distribution of heavy metals in the tidal flat is of great significance on the estuary environment. This study aims to find the heavy metal distribution mechanism at low tidal flat in Yangtze Estuary, China. 4 sediment cores were collected at low tidal flat of eastern Chongming Island at four seasons spring, summer, autumn and winter. The concentrations of element Al, Cu, Cr, Fe, Mn, Pb, Rb, Zn, ...
