Investigation of bubble behavior with phase change under the effect of noncondensable gas (2019)
Journal Article
Jia, H., Xiao, X., & Kang, Y. (2019). Investigation of bubble behavior with phase change under the effect of noncondensable gas. Chemical engineering science, 207, 631-643. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ces.2019.07.003

An Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian based numerical method is proposed to study the phase change bubble under the effect of noncondensable gas (NCG). In order to validate the underlying mathematical model, benchmark tests, including the bubble growth in...

Rheological Characteristics of Molten Salt Seeded with Al2O3 Nanopowder and Graphene for Concentrated Solar Power (2019)
Journal Article
Xiao, X., Zhang, G., Ding, Y., & Wen, D. (2019). Rheological Characteristics of Molten Salt Seeded with Al2O3 Nanopowder and Graphene for Concentrated Solar Power. Energies, 12(3), https://doi.org/10.3390/en12030467

HITEC salt (NaNO2-NaO3-KNO3) and solar salt (NaO3-KNO3) are typical molten salts used in concentrated solar power. Adding nanoparticles is an effective method to improve the thermo-physical properties of pure salt. It is indispensable to experimental...

Sudden cardiac death in athletes: A mini-review (2020)
Journal Article
Soori, R., Gharehlo, A., Hashemi, N., Hashemi, N., & Ingle, L. (in press). Sudden cardiac death in athletes: A mini-review. World Heart Journal,

Elite young athletes with clinically silent cardiovascular disorders are at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in competitive sports activity. SCD is caused by a variety of conditions; in middle-aged/senior athletes, atherosclerotic coronary artery d... Read More about Sudden cardiac death in athletes: A mini-review.
