  • Review on material and design of anode for microbial fuel cell 

    Banerjee, Aritro; Calay, Rajnish K; Mustafa, Mohamad (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-21)
    Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) is a bio-electrochemical system that generates electricity by anaerobic oxidation of substrates. An anode is the most critical component because the primary conversion of wastewater into electrons and protons takes place on the surface of the anode, where a biofilm is formed. This paper describes the essential properties of the anode and classifies its types according ...

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics - A Stepping-Stone of MULTIPHYSICS 

    Khawaja, Hassan (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2022-07-07)
    Fluids have been around us for as long as we know; they have enabled us to cross the oceans, ride the winds, shorten distances, and much more. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has extended our understanding of fluids. Even to this day, the analytical solution of fundamental equations of fluid mechanics remains a million-dollar award problem (Clay Mathematics Institute). As engineers, we’ll leave ...

  • Weighted Boundedness of Certain Sublinear Operators in Generalized Morrey Spaces on Quasi-Metric Measure Spaces Under the Growth Condition 

    Samko, Natasha Gabatsuyevna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-17)
    We prove weighted boundedness of Calderón–Zygmund and maximal singular operators in generalized Morrey spaces on quasi-metric measure spaces, in general non-homogeneous, only under the growth condition on the measure, for a certain class of weights. Weights and characteristic of the spaces are independent of each other. Weighted boundedness of the maximal operator is also proved in the case when ...
