Influenta iluminarii si a trasoarelor asupra masuratorilor de velocimetrie a imaginii particulelor pe canalele de curgere deschise
Influence of illumination and tracers on Particle Image Velocimetry measurements on open flow channels
Ilinca Nastase, Mihnea Sandu, Marius Iliescu, Amjed Albaiyati
Within the study of free surface flows, measurements in the vertical planes of the flow are desired. Using Particle Image Velocimetry, usually measurements are performed with the laser sheet through the bottom of the channel in order to avoid the optical perturbations on the laser light sheet, generating light scattering and measurement artefacts. There are however a number of cases where this is not possible since the transparence of the bottom cannot be ensured. In the present study we wanted to check the influence of the illumination on the velocity fields distribution, through the bottom of the channel or through the free surface, on a very simple flow on a plane plate placed on the bottom of a circular channel. We also checked the influence on using conventional silver hollow glass spheres and fluorescent particles.
The results allowed us to conclude that in the cases where the study is focused on the boundary layer close to the solid surface and the observed perturbations of the free surface are not important, top illumination of the open channel might be considered as an option if perturbations of the free surface are not observed.

Steady heat transfer by natural (free) convection and radiation, for a horizontal circular pipe surrounded by air, using the Mathcad® software
Gelu-Adrian CHISALITA, Raluca MOLDOVAN
Lucrarea prezinta un studiu privind transmiterea caldurii in regim termic stationar, prin convectie termica libera si radiatie, de la o conducta cu sectiune circulara catre aerul inconjurator. Cu ajutorul aplicatiei software Mathcad®, a fost implementata pe calculator procedura de calcul pentru coeficientii de transfer termic superficiali prin convectie, radiatie si combinat, precum si determinarea valorii fluxului termic unitar raportat la unitatea de lungime transmis mediului ambiant, avand in vedere diverse valori ale temperaturii pe suprafata exterioara a conductei. Rezultatele studiului indica faptul ca neglijarea transferului de caldura prin radiatie termica, chiar in cazul unor temperaturi avand valori cuprinse in intervalul 40°C…90°C, poate conduce la erori tehnice relativ ridicate privind estimarea pierderilor de caldura ale conductelor, fiind necesar a lua in calcul in aceste situatii transferul termic combinat prin convectie si radiatie.

The paper presents a study on the heat transfer in steady state, by natural convection and radiation, from a circular pipe to the surrounding air. Using the Mathcad® software application, the calculation procedure for the average heat transfer coefficient on the surface by convection, radiation and combined was implemented on the computer, as well as the determination of the heat flux density (the rate of heat transfer per unit time per unit length) taking into account various values of the outer surface temperature of the pipe. The results of the study show that neglecting the heat transfer by thermal radiation, even for low temperatures with values in the range of 40°C...90°C, can lead to relatively high technical errors in estimating the heat loss of pipes. In these situations, is necessary to take into account the combined heat transfer by natural convection and thermal radiation.

Theoretical aspects regarding energy efficiency in foods refrigeration and freezing
Alina GIRIP, Razvan CALOTA, Madalina NICHITA, Anica ILIE
This paper presents a technical study on energy consumption and performance of a refrigeration system used for food products refrigeration and congelation. The authors compared the two-stage refrigeration system with the cascade refrigeration system. The analysis was based on the thermodynamic cycles corresponding to each one of the proposed solutions. For the booster system several refrigerants were considered in the analysis for the upper loop, respectively R717, R404A, R407C and R417A. Based on the total energy consumption of the installation (compressor, fans, recirculation pumps), the overall performance coefficient of the installation was determined. The study showed that the lowest electrical energy consumption corresponds to the cascade refrigeration system with R717-R744 and the two-stage compression refrigeration system with R717. The difference between the 2 optimal variants is only 4.6%. Therefore, it is recommended that the choice of the final scheme to be made on the basis of an LCC (Life cycle cost) analyze, which takes into account the refrigerant charge, the initial investment cost, the operating costs and the electricity cost.

A Review Regarding the Heat Recovery from Wastewater
One of the main challenges in the world today is reducing energy consumption and CO2 footprint in existing buildings without major construction work. Many of these buildings represent heritage buildings and the intervention constraints on the original building are much more restrictive for these particular cases. The building sector is one of the world's largest energy consumers, so it is important to seek out and use recovery energies for individual consumers. The main component of energy consumption in buildings is heating, but the demand for the domestic hot water is also very high, especially when daily consumption is high and especially for specific applications ( hotels or laundries for example) This is why the implementation of technologies using renewable energy and recovery sources for water heating has become very important and one of these technologies involves the recovery of the thermal energy from wastewater. Usually, heat recovery from wastewater is designed to recover residual energy from the hot drainage water and this recovered energy is used to preheat incoming cold water or to heat pumps.

Therefore, the paper exemplifies and compares these software applications used successfully in the size of distribution cabinets. Therefore, the paper exemplifies and compares these software applications used successfully in the size of distribution cabinets. Dimensions of the switchboard are obtained by choosing and correctly positioning the electrical equipment in the switchboard. Schrack Design program allows the manufacturing of electrical panels without calculating the necessary parameters choices of protection and switching equipment. The choice of electrical equipment and electrical distribution panels is made exclusively by the user. It can make component selections from the manufacturer's database or add electrical equipment from other companies to this database. Once the options have been selected, the program generates the single-wire or multi-wire circuit diagram. The validation of the chosen solutions involves the thermal calculation of the electrical distribution panels which is done with the help of the Schrack Design program.

Modeling the Drying Shrinkage of Structural Concretes
Abderraouf Kebir, Abdelmalek Brahma
Shrinkage in hydraulic materials is a complex time-dependent process. For standard concretes, one of the most significant parts of shrinkage is drying shrinkage. In fact, to predict deformations of concrete due to shrinkage, various predictive models have been developed; most of them use many numbers of factors that can affect shrinkage such as concrete strength, concrete age at loading, curing conditions type, ambient conditions, type of cement and aggregates, water to cement ratio, concrete mix, member shape and size, loading duration and type. A such number of parameters increases the complexity of using these models lead to some prediction imperfections; thence a new simplified model is needed. The main target of the current paper is to formulate a novel and simplified model with a minimum of factors that affect drying shrinkage behaviour as like as relative humidity and volume to area ratio of the concrete element (V/S). To achieve this goal, we had developed a prediction model based on probability density function and a small number of parameters that influence shrinkage like relative humidity and volume to surface ratio of the element. A huge database has been used to calibrate our model's parameters using the most recent studies and researches to validate the model.
