Proc. ASME. IMECE2007, Volume 11: Micro and Nano Systems, Parts A and B, 457-466, November 11–15, 2007
Paper No: IMECE2007-41139
... 26 05 2009 A novel micromachined accelerometer without proof mass, based on the buoyancy of a heated fluid around a polysilicon heater, has previously been developed and reported. Significant features of this class of accelerometer include low cost and the combination of high...

... of buoyancy-driven turbulent mixing. Parallel streams of hot and cold water are separated initially by a splitter plate. The streams are oriented in such a way to place cold water above the hot water. Upon the termination of the splitter plate, the two streams are allowed to mix and a buoyancy-driven mixing...

Proc. ASME. IMECE2004, Electronic and Photonic Packaging, Electrical Systems Design and Photonics, and Nanotechnology, 571-578, November 13–19, 2004
Paper No: IMECE2004-62059
... 28 03 2008 This paper presents an experimental investigation of the thermal transport phenomena in buoyancy-driven nanofluids. The experimental model for this study is a rectangular enclosure with differentially heated vertical walls and adiabatic horizontal walls. The nanofluids were...

Paper No: IMECE2006-16303
... 12 02 2008 High Atwood number (non-dimensional density difference) effects in buoyancy driven flows are discussed. Buoyancy driven (natural convection) flows may be treated as Boussinesq for small Atwood number, but as Atwood number increases (>0.1, i.e. large temperature...
