We analyze the performance of a planar lens based on realistic negative index material in a
generalized geometry. We demonstrate that the conventional superlens design (where the lens is
centered between the object and the image) is not optimal from the resolution point of view, develop
an analytical expression for...
Agricultural water supplies are becoming increasingly uncertain in the western
United States due to elevated demands from competing water users, environmental
restrictions on surface water withdrawals as a result of the establishment of the
Endangered Species Act in 1973, and potential climatic changes. Since many rural
communities in the West...
Stagnation point heat transfer in a gas undergoing relaxation of its
internal energy is examined by solution of the equations of motion
using the two temperature approach of Wang Chang and Uhlenbeck.
The results are presented in parametric form and show that relaxation effects produce an adiabatic wall temperature above...
An experimental investigation has been performed to determine the
forced convection heat transfer due to three-dimensional air flow over
a flat plate as a function of angle of attack and free stream velocity.
The experimental method employed a transient thermal technique and
placed the convecting surface next to the exhaust...
Liquid cooled, laminar microchannel heat sinks were
earlier proposed by Tuckerman for cooling high heat
generating integrated circuits and high power microwave
generation systems using photoconductive switches. A
method of computationally analyzing the heat sinks is
presented which produces the desired temperature and
velocity distributions within the heat sinks. The...
