Entropy generation and exergy destruction in condensing steam flow through turbine blade with surface roughness (2019)
Journal Article
Ding, H., Li, Y., Lakzian, E., Wen, C., & Wang, C. (2019). Entropy generation and exergy destruction in condensing steam flow through turbine blade with surface roughness. Energy Conversion and Management, 196, 1089-1104. doi:10.1016/j.enconman.2019.06.066

In the steam turbine, the wetness loss due to vapor condensation is one of the most crucial losses at low-pressure stage. This study focused on entropy generation and exergy destruction of condensing steam flow in turbine blade with the roughness. Th... Read More

Performance of supersonic steam ejectors considering the nonequilibrium condensation phenomenon for efficient energy utilisation (2019)
Journal Article
Yang, Y., Zhu, X., Yan, Y., Ding, H., & Wen, C. (2019). Performance of supersonic steam ejectors considering the nonequilibrium condensation phenomenon for efficient energy utilisation. Applied Energy, 242, 157-167. doi:10.1016/j.apenergy.2019.03.023

Supersonic ejectors are of great interest for various industries as they can improve the quality of the low-grade heat source in an eco-friendly and sustainable way. However, the impact of steam condensation on the supersonic ejector performances is... Read More

An efficient approach to separate CO2 using supersonic flows for carbon capture and storage (2019)
Journal Article
Wen, C., Karvounis, N., Honore Walther, J., Yan, Y., Feng, Y., Yang, Y., & Yang, Y. (2019). An efficient approach to separate CO2 using supersonic flows for carbon capture and storage. Applied Energy, 238, 311-319. doi:10.1016/j.apenergy.2019.01.062

The mitigation of CO2 emissions is an effective measure to solve the climate change issue. In the present study, we propose an alternative approach for CO2 capture by employing supersonic flows. For this purpose, we first develop a computational flui... Read More
