Proceedings Papers

Proc. ASME. IMECE2021, Volume 1: Acoustics, Vibration, and Phononics, V001T01A021, November 1–5, 2021
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: IMECE2021-73478
... Abstract Direct contact membrane distillation (DCMD) for desalination often suffers from membrane fouling, scaling, low permeate water flux and pore wetting. This study focuses on the integration of sonication with DCMD to mitigate these problems by enhancing mass flux and reducing temperature...

Proc. ASME. IMECE2019, Volume 7: Fluids Engineering, V007T08A039, November 11–14, 2019
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: IMECE2019-10727
... Abstract Computational fluid dynamics simulations were conducted to model the effect of adding mixing promoters in sweeping gas membrane distillation modules. Net-type spacers of 45° are placed in the feed side while membrane corrugation is employed with the tips of the corrugation pointing...

Proc. ASME. IMECE2019, Volume 6: Energy, V006T06A059, November 11–14, 2019
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: IMECE2019-11486
... Abstract Membrane distillation (MD) has been studied as a promising solution in the desalination industry but it has not been widely accepted or commercialized due to energy and cost concerns. MD is considered as a hybrid method that involves phase-change thermal processes and the use...
