Journal Article
Chen, X., Su, Y., Aydin, D., Ding, Y., Zhang, S., Reay, D., & Riffat, S. (2018). A novel evaporative cooling system with a polymer hollow fibre spindle. Applied Thermal Engineering, 132, 665-675. doi:10.1016/j.applthermaleng.2018.01.005

A polymer hollow fibre evaporative cooling system with a novel configuration of fibre bundle is proposed. With the aim to avoid the flow channelling or shielding of adjacent fibres the fibres inside each bundle were made into a spindle shape to maxim... Read More
