Finite element modeling is employed to study the behavior and characteristics of flush end plate, bolted connections. To investigate the failure mechanism and non-linear behavior of the connections a 3D model is created and analyzed using non-linear material models and contacts between components of the connection. The paper shows the good agreement between the experimental and numerical results.

The main goal of this study is firstly to model the phenomenon of advection and diffusion of the gaseous residues of coal combustion. On the other hand, to study the dispersion of this pollution by varying the parameters like the wind and the resources of pollution, where there are four emissions: SO2, CO, NO2 and PM10. The present model will compare estimating concentrations with the results found by the contribution of the thermal power plant of Jerada city, where the American Environmental Regulatory Model is used. The results suggest that SO2, PM10, NO2 and CO concentration simulated by turbulent k-ε model in combination with the transport model of diluted species, at the 3h and 24h intervals, greater than their respective observed concentrations compared with the American Environmental Regulatory Model. The concentrations of the model found are very high and exceed the limit values under the study conditions. Indeed, the simulated model was used in 2D with a very low wind speed (10−4 m/s) and in the absence of gravity, hence the total neglect of altitude because the two sources of pollution are at the height of 120 m.

A numerical study of the thermodynamic properties of a superconducting quantum cylinder in a longitudinal magnetic field is carried out. Closed-form expressions for the critical temperature, the free energy, the heat capacity jump, and the magnetization difference between the superconducting and normal phases as functions of the nanotube parameters are obtained in limit cases.
variation can be attributed to the numericalstudies and review papers in this field. Moreover, this figure presents the variation in the article numbers by using nanofluids and geometry or inserts categories, that aimed to enhance the performance of the PTC
