Abstract: deregulation and dynamic market conditions have created significant opportunities for the engagement of industrial entities normally regarded as electricity consumers in the operation of the power grid. Chemical plants (e.g., air separation, ammonia production, chlor-alkali) are particularly promising candidates given their large power demand. Engaging in such activities (either demand response or providing ancillary ... Read more about "Demand Response Operation of Chemical Plants: Models and Computational Methods"

This year marks the centenary of a pivotal breakthrough: the confirmation that gravity can be described as spacetime curvature. Among the most outrageous predictions of the theory are the existence of black holes and gravitational waves. Gravitational waves offer a unique glimpse into the unseen universe in different ways, and allow us to test the ... Read more about "Testing General Relativity with Gravitational Waves"

Abstract: Past studies of the transition to turbulence in pipes and related shear flows could neither agree on a critical point nor on the nature of the transition. The main difficulty is that in this class of flows turbulence arises despite the linear stability of the laminar flow and that it results from perturbations of ...
