Maldistribution of Two-Phase Flow in Parallel Channel Heat Sinks: Effects of Thermal Connection Between Channels

  • Patankar G.
  • Salamon T.

Two-phase cold plates, in which heat is transferred to a fluid flow via the process of flow boiling, offer a high performance thermal management solution for a variety of applications. Studies have identified that flow in such cold plates can be accompanied by flow instabilities. This work studies the maldistribution ...

Identification of connected objects based on network protocol data

Thermal Interface Material Enablement of Off-Board Two-Phase Cooling

  • Amalfi L.
  • Salamon T.
  • Smith M.
  • Thome J.

Two-phase, refrigerant-based cooling offers significant promise for increasing heat densities and energy efficiencies of electronic components. One barrier to wide spread adoption of two-phase cooling solutions is preserving product features deemed essential for product functionality. An important feature present in a wide range of product applications, particularly within the telecommunications ...

Simulator sickness and visual discomfort are known undesired effects of immersive media systems. In this paper, we propose a methodology to systematically evaluate the effect of camera motion in cybersickness for omnidirectional video contents. By simulating camera motion, we have isolated its effect from other content factors, showing that sickness ...

A Bayesian Probabilistic Approach to Hybrid Localization with GNSS and LTE-OTDOA in Multipath Channels

  • Geng C.
  • Huang H.

For time-of-arrival (TOA) localization, the channel bias introduced by unresolvable multipath and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) reflections severely degrade the performance. To address this impairment, Perez-Cruz et al. proposed a Bayesian probabilistic approach, which characterizes the channel bias with a probability distribution such that it can be robustly compensated, and illustrated its ...
