Analysis of a Refrigeration Cycle with CoolProp
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153490&ref=Feed
<p>This application analyzes a vapor compression refrigeration cycle for the refrigerant R134a. The application calculates heat changes over the compressor, condenser, throttle and evaporator, together with the coefficient of performance. Additionally, a P-h-T chart illustrating the refrigeration cycle is plotted.</p>
<p>Thermophysical properties are provided by the open source C++ CoolProp library (<a href="http://coolprop.org/">http://coolprop.org</a>). Once compiled and linked to Maple, CoolProp lets you access the properties of pure fluids, pseudo-pure fluids, and humid air with a function call. This application comes with a CoolProp DLL for 64-bit Windows. You may need to compile CoolProp for your own environment for a compatible library. </p><img src="/view.aspx?si=153490/CoolProp_image1.jpg" alt="Analysis of a Refrigeration Cycle with CoolProp" align="left"/><p>This application analyzes a vapor compression refrigeration cycle for the refrigerant R134a.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=134198&ref=Feed
The OrthogonalExpansions package contributed to the Maple Application Center by Dr. Sergey Moiseev is considered as a tool for generating a Fourier series and its partial sums. This package provides commands for expansions in 17 other bases of orthogonal functions. In addition to looking at the Fourier series option, this article also considers the Bessel series expansion.<img src="/view.aspx?si=134198/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Fourier Series and an Orthogonal Expansions Package" align="left"/>The OrthogonalExpansions package contributed to the Maple Application Center by Dr. Sergey Moiseev is considered as a tool for generating a Fourier series and its partial sums.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=119402&ref=Feed
This application models the temperature dynamics of a countercurrent double pipe heat exchanger. Three partial differential equations are derived from heat balances across the tube- and shell-side liquids, and the tube wall (accounting for heat flow from the shell- and tube-side liquids, and conduction along the length of the tube).
The equations are solved numerically, and the temperature profiles are plotted. The heat exchanger is assumed to be perfectly insulated. Densities, specific heat capacities, heat transfer coefficients, and thermal conductivities are assumed to be constant.<img src="/view.aspx?si=119402/381585\tube.png" alt="Countercurrent Double Pipe Heat Exchanger" align="left"/>This application models the temperature dynamics of a countercurrent double pipe heat exchanger.

In this model, water on the shell-side heats milk on the tube-side in a countercurrent double-pipe heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is modeled via a heat balance on a discretized control volume, with the system equations implemented in a custom component. A full derivation of the system equations is given in an attached document (look under Project>Attachments>Documents). Heat transfer coefficients are given by the Dittus-Boelter correlation, and the temperature variation of the milk viscosity is accounted for.<img src="/view.aspx?si=100377/sim_icon.jpg" alt="Double Pipe Countercurrent Heat Exchanger" align="left"/>In this model, water on the shell-side heats milk on the tube-side in a countercurrent double-pipe heat exchanger.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=7240&ref=Feed
In this worksheet we consider a long metal cylinder that has a magnetic field applied parallel to the axis and a constraint on the current density at a particular depth. We demonstrate how the temperature depends on time and depth from the surface in a very long cylinder. This is calculated using the current density, the power density and the partial differential equation of heat conduction. In induction, the heating is caused by eddy currents, which themselves give rise to alternating magnetic fields. Because of the skin effect and depending on the frequency of the magnetic field, the highest current density exists directly under the surface of the heated work piece. It decreases rapidly with increasing depth. We calculate the effective magnetic field intensity on the surface required to reach a given temperature in a given time.<img src="/view.aspx?si=7240/A_Cylinder_heated_by_Induction_2009_2.gif" alt="Cylinder Heated by Induction" align="left"/>In this worksheet we consider a long metal cylinder that has a magnetic field applied parallel to the axis and a constraint on the current density at a particular depth.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=6403&ref=Feed
The demand for more powerful engines in smaller hood spaces has created a problem of insufficient rates of heat dissipation in automotive radiators. As a result, many radiators must be redesigned to be more compact while still having sufficient cooling power capabilities.
This application proposes a new design for a smaller radiator assembly, which is capable of dissipating the same heat as the original design, given a set of operating conditions.<img src="/view.aspx?si=6403/thumb.jpg" alt="Designing a More Effective Car Radiator" align="left"/>The demand for more powerful engines in smaller hood spaces has created a problem of insufficient rates of heat dissipation in automotive radiators.
