      Santos-Raez, Isidro Maria; Arjona-Escudero, Jose Luis; Gomez-Merino, Ana Isabel (2019-07-02)
      In this paper a improvement in the heat exchange of a solar Stirling engine during the compression phase was studied. The viability of using nanoparticles as ceramic oxide (Al2O3 in water) at different concentrations ...
    • Rheological behavior of a commercial milk-based sauce 

      Rubio-Hernandez, Francisco Jose; Rubio Merino, Julia; Gomez-Merino, Ana Isabel; Cabello Arrabal, Sara María; Pérez Hidalgo, Cristina; [et al.] (2019-10-21)
      • The acceptation of semisolid foods by consumers is greatly determined by their rheological properties. • Sauces are semisolid foods and, in general, show viscoplastic and shear-thinning viscous flow behaviours. On the ...
    • Rheological behaviour of fruit and milk-based smoothies 

      Rubio-Merino, Julia; Rubio-Hernandez, Francisco Jose; Gomez-Merino, Ana Isabel (2017-09-12)
      Two of the most important food attributes for today´s fast-moving lifestyle are convenience and healthiness [1-2]. Fast-moving lifestyle specifically affects to elderly people, who are prone to bad-nutrition due to their ...
    • Rheological study of the aggregation state of alumina nanofluids 

      Arjona-Escudero, Jose Luis; Santos-Raez, Isidro Maria; Gomez-Merino, Ana Isabel; Rubio-Hernandez, Francisco Jose (Hernández, M.J., Sanz, T, Salvador, A., Rubio-Hernández, F.J., 2017)
      The presence of alumina solid particles in aqueous phase induces a change in the viscosity of the suspension from Newtonian to non- Newtonian flow. Besides, the presence of solid particles is adequate for the use as a heat ...
    • Thermophysical and flow properties of coconut oil with silica fumed nanoparticles 

      Santos-Raez, Isidro Maria; Jiménez Galea, Jesús Javier; Arjona-Escudero, Jose Luis; Gomez-Merino, Ana Isabel; Rubio-Hernandez, Francisco Jose; [et al.] (2019-10-02)
