This project will determine the relative value of two different kinds of module construction for encapsulating photovoltaic cells: one of double-glass construction and the other known as glass/backsheet, where the backsheet is instead a multilayer polymer laminate.
Developing modular, portable, reliable methane reformers to convert natural gas syngas at wellheads, with the potential for subsequent conversion to (for example) higher- value hydrocarbons or hydrogen for carbon-free electricity.
This project seeks to improve the understanding of high-deposition LHW processing of Grade 2 CP-Ti and the variables that affect structure/chemistry/properties; and determine the effects of processing conditions and build/volume thickness on the strength, ductility and fracture toughness of LHW-processed Grade 2 CP-Ti for different thickness and orientations.
