Choi, Jae-Hyuk ; Park, Sang-Kyun ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Engineering, volume 37, issue 8, 2013, Pages 807~815
DOI : 10.5916/jkosme.2013.37.8.807
A numerical study on soot formation in a laminar ethylene diffusion flame at atmospheric pressure was conducted to obtain a better understanding of the effects of buoyancy on sooting flames under 0g and 1g using a gas-phase reaction mechanism and thermal and transport properties. A simple model was employed to predict soot formation, growth and oxidation with interactions between the gas phase chemistry and the soot chemistry taken into account. Results showed that the flames in 0g are much wider than that of 1g because of the thicker diffusion layer and reduction in axial velocity. The reduction in the axial velocity in 0g results in longer residence times, and resulting in greatly enhanced soot volume fraction. And, under zero-gravity, due to the lack of a buoyancy-induced instability, flame instability disappears.

Small-pore Cu-chabazite SCR catalysts with high NOx conversion at low temperatures are of interest for marine diesel engines with exhaust temperatures in the range of 150 to
. Unfortunately, fuels for marine diesel engines can contain a high level of sulfur of up to 1.5% by volume, which corresponds to a
level of 500 ppm in the exhaust gases for an engine operating with an A/F ratio of 50:1. This high level of
in the exhaust may have detrimental effects on the NOx performance of the Cu-chabazite SCR catalysts. In the present study, a bench-flow reactor is used to investigate the effects of sulfur poisoning on the NOx performance of Cu-chabazite SCR catalysts. The SCR catalysts were exposed to simulated diesel exhaust gas stream consisted of 500 ppm
as the balance gas at 150, 200, 250 and
for 2 hours at a GHSV of 30,000
. After sulfur poisoning the low-temperature NOx performance of the SCR catalyst is evaluated over a temperature range of 150-
to determine the extent of the catalyst deactivation. Desulfation is also carried out at 600 and
for 30 minutes to determine whether it is possible to recover the NOx performance of the sulfur-poisoned SCR Catalysts.

The mechanics of woven fabric-based laminated composites is complex. Then, many researchers have studied woven fabric CFRP materials but fracture resistance behaviors for composites have not been still standardized. It also shows the different behavior according to load and fiber direction. Therefore, there is a need to consider fracture resistance behavior in conformity with load and fiber direction at designing structure using woven CFRP materials. In this study, therefore, the tensile strength and resistance for plain-weave CFRP composite materials were investigated under various different angle condition(load to fiber angle:
). Tensile strength and fracture toughness tests were carried out under mode I transverse crack opening load by using compact tension specimens.

A seawater pipe of the engine room in the ships is being surrounded with severely corrosive environments caused by fast flowing of the seawater, containing aggressive chloride ion and high conductivity etc.. Therefore, the leakage of the seawater from its pipe have been often occurred due to its local corrosion by aggressive chloride ions. Subsequently, its leakage area is usually welded by AC shielded metal arc welding with various electrodes. In this study, when the sea water pipe is welded with several types of electrodes such as E4301, E4311, E4313 and E4316, a difference of the corrosion resistance on the welding metal zones was investigated using an electrochemical method, observing microstructure, measuring polarization behaviors and hardness. The weld metal zone welded with E4313 electrode exhibited the lowest value of hardness compared to other weld metal zones. In addition, its zone indicated also the best corrosion resistance than those of other weld metal zones. Furthermore, all of the weld metal zones revealed a relatively better corrosion resistance than those of the base metal zones. and also showed higher hardness than the base metal zones.

Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Engineering, volume 37, issue 8, 2013, Pages 893~904
DOI : 10.5916/jkosme.2013.37.8.893
In this paper, a Kriging metamodel-based multi-objective optimization strategy in conjunction with an NSGA-II(non-dominated sorted genetic algorithm-II) has been employed to optimize the valve-plate shape of the axial piston pump utilizing 3D CFD simulations. The optimization process for minimum pressure ripple and maximum pump efficiency is composed of two steps; (1) CFD simulation of the piston pump operation with various combination of six parameters selected based on the optimization principle, and (2) applying a multi-objective optimization approach based on the NSGA-II using the CFD data set to evaluate the Pareto front. Our exploration shows that we can choose an optimal trade-off solution combination to reach a target efficiency of the axial piston pump with minimum pressure ripple.

Kwag, Seung-Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Engineering, volume 37, issue 8, 2013, Pages 905~910
DOI : 10.5916/jkosme.2013.37.8.905
The flow analysis has been made by applying the turbulent models in the helically coiled tubes of heat transfer. The k-
and Spalart-Allmaras turbulent models are used in which the structured grid is applied for the simulation. The velocity vector, the pressure contour, the change of residuals along the iteration number and the friction factors are simulated by solving the Navier-Stokes equations to make clear the Reynolds number effect. The helical tube increases the centrifugal forces by which the wall shear stress become larger on the outer side of the tube. The centrifugal force makes the heat transfer rate locally larger due to the increase of the flow energy, which finds out the close relationship between the pressure drop and friction factor in the internal flow. The present numerical results are compared with others, for example, in the value of friction factor for validation.

The conventional object tracking techniques using PTZ camera detects object movements by analyzing acquired image. However, this technique requires expensive hardware devices to perform a complex image processing. And it is occasionally hard to detect object movements, if an acquired image is low quality or image acquisition is impossible.

Recently, the Fingerprint, which is one of the methods of indoor localization using WLAN, has been many studied owing to robustness about ranging error by the diffraction and refraction of radio waves. However, in the signal gathering process and comparison operation for the measured signals with the database, this method requires time consumption and computational complexity. In order to compensate for these problems, this paper presents, based on proposed modified database, WLAN indoor localization algorithm using selective operation of collected signal in real time. The proposed algorithm reduces the configuration time and the size of the data in the database through linear interpolation and thresholding according to the signal strength, the localization accuracy, while reducing the computational complexity, is maintained through selective operation of the signals which are measured in real time. The experimental results show that the accuracy of localization is improved to 17.8% and the computational complexity reduced to 46% compared to conventional Fingerprint in the corridor by using proposed algorithm.

Xenon flashlamp power supply for solid-state laser has a converter with high voltage conversion ratio. General model is composed of transformer with high voltage conversion ratio and voltage doubler rectifier circuit. The purpose of power supply leads dielectric breakdown of Xenon flashlamp and passes current rapidly. When it is passing through the current, it has to limit current to avoid over-heat, damage of electrode and acceleration of gas oxidation which are cause of performance degradation of laser system. In general, the inductor and the resistor are used to limit current. In addition, this type of transformer has high turn ratio to make high voltage. But we can get high voltage using transformer with low turn ratio which is driven by the self resonance. Also, advantage of the self resonance is to make simple circuit through the impedance of transformer in resonanct frequency which filters output voltage. I investigated and simplified the main theory for the good characteristics for Xe arc discharge flashlamp.
