      Article
      Open Access
      A giant barocaloric effect (BCE) in a molecular material Fe3(bntrz)6(tcnset)6 (FBT) is reported, where bntrz = 4-(benzyl)-1,2,4-triazole and tcnset = 1,1,3,3-tetracyano-2-thioethylepropenide. The crystal structure of FBT ...
    • OpenFOAM computational fluid dynamics simulations of thermal wind generation in mountain/valley configurations

      Conference report
      Open Access
      Thermal winds appear in mountainous areas and valleys due to temperature gradients caused by the buoyancy effects associated with the diurnal heating-cooling cycle of the lower atmosphere. These winds develop over complex ...
    • The introduction of the glaze in al-Andalus: Technological waves and Oriental influences
