Chapter
As the need for developing more eco-friendly materials surges, the shift from conventional materials toward natural fiber reinforced composite (NFCs) materials has been increasing steadily. NFCs received much significance, as natural fibers are existing in abundance. Further, being bio-degradable, renewable, and cost-effective goes in favor of NFCs...
Article
Musa paradisiaca L. blossom petal (MPBP) fibers are extracted from banana plant agro-based domestic waste. The properties of MPBP fibers were reported for the first time in this communication. X-ray diffraction analysis showed the crystallinity index and size of 56.71% and 16.38 nm, respectively. The thermogravimetric analysis indicates that the MP...
Article
This paper presents the impacts of supercritical CO2 transport in high temperature porous media with oversaturated fines. The latter phenomenon (indicates oversaturated fines) is in which the lift force of the fine particle over pore surface is greater than the gravitational and electrostatic forces combined, where the fines are released from the p...

The adiabatic behavior of natural gas production well is frequently neglected in the reservoir formation damage study. The temperature of surrounding formation contributes to the smooth flow of natural gas in the wellbore. The heat transfer from the formation and geothermal gradient plays vital role in the efficient transport of gas in the subsurfa...
Article
Kaolinite clay fines are prevalent in sandstone porous media and it has great impacts on permeability and well productivity decline. High temperature sandstone formations detach the fines from the pore surface and migrate along with the permeating fluid. At some point the fine particles are strained in the pore throats, which leading to permeabilit...
Book
In this book, NACA 0025 aerofoil wind turbine blade is used for modeling the vertical axis wind turbine rotors. The straight bladed vertical axis wind turbine rotor is twisted to 450 in order to improve the performance of rotor. The structural analysis in ANSYS APDL and CFD analysis in ANSYS-CFX for the straight and twisted blade vertical axis wind...
Article
This paper presents a novel integrated statistical model to evaluate the diesel engine performance that is operating with duel fuel Jatropha and fish oil blend. Hence, a single cylinder, four stroke, direct Injection constant speed diesel engine was used. The experiments were taken from each category of the injection timing such as retardation, sta...

Natural swollen finger grass fibers being novel are botanically known as “Chloris barbata fibers (CBFs)” and are selected for this study in order to understand their morphological properties. The CBF has higher cellulose (65.37 wt%) content and lower density (634 kg/m³). Crystallinity Index (CI) of CBF was calculated from X-ray diffraction studies...

Southern towns such as Virudhunagar and Sivakasi are well known for fireworks, matches and printing. Even though the technology has been developed world wide, still there is some lagging in industrial automation. In many match industries, the process of packing is done manually. Though the production rate decreases, workers " wages also increases....
