In this paper we consider a stationary thermodynamic system that includes a transformer of mechanical energy into heat energy or heat into mechanical energy. We derive conditions that determine temperature distribution ...

In a recently developed simple particle mechanics model, in which a single particle represents the working fluid, (gas) in a heat engine, (exemplified by a piston engine) a new approach was outlined for the teaching of ...

The influence of surface barrier on the third harmonics ac susceptibility (χ3) is studied numerically. The surface barrier is described by a critical current density in surfaces which are higher than the inside one. The ...
Hysteresis phenomenon is one of the important characteristics of soft magnetic materials. A three-dimensional (3D) magnetic property measurement system has been developed. This system can effectively control the locus of ...
Due to their intrinsic isotropic magnetic properties, soft magnetic composite (SMC) materials are applied in electrical machines in which the magnetic energy can be transported in three dimensions (3-D). However, in real ...
A three-dimensional (3-D) magnetic property measurement system, which can control the three components of the magnetic flux density B vector and measure the magnetic field strength H vector in a cubic sample of soft magnetic ...
This paper investigates the thrust forces of two novel permanent magnet transverse flux linear oscillating actuators (TFLOAs), one with moving magnet and the other moving both magnet and iron core, for pump and compressor ...
The CAD of dual-mode HE11 dielectric resonator (DR) microwave filters is extended to include time-domain methods. S-parameters are computed for a four-pole dual-mode HE11 DR filter using the FDTD over both wide and narrow ...
Torsional finite elements for direct, branched and grounded (boundary) connections and geared connections with rigid or elastic tooth mesh are presented. The use of these elements for developing dynamic models of various ...
We demonstrate that multiple copies of a bipartite entangled pure state may serve as a catalyst for certain entanglement transformations while a single copy cannot. Such a state is termed a
The band structures for the six lightest group-I and -II oxides were measured and calculated. These band structures were measured by using electron momentum spectroscopy, a technique that maps the ground-state occupied ...
The role of the plasma frequency omega(p) of conductors in their use for various solar energy and energy efficiency tasks, especially in transparent solar control window coatings, is analysed for a range of materials ...

Issues affecting the performance of polymers doped with conducting nanoparticles for use with windows are examined in terms of impact on visible and solar transmittance, solar heat gain, and residual scattering. Emphasis ...
Using the exact theory of multipole expansions, we construct the two-dimensional Greens function for photonic crystals, consisting of a finite number of circular cylinders of infinite length. From this Greens function, we ...
We address the problem of unambiguous discrimination among a given set of quantum operations. The necessary and sufficient condition for them to be unambiguously distinguishable is derived in the cases of single use and ...
We discuss the problem of designing unambiguous programmable discriminators for any $n$ unknown quantum states in an $m$-dimensional Hilbert space. The discriminator is a fixed measurement which has two kinds of input ...
