Comments

This project entails a full analysis of the addition of graphite foam to a common thermal desalination process of the purification of saltwater to a level of acceptable use by society. Heat transfer properties were analyzed to determine if this new material would be effective to maximize water output while minimizing the costs involved in operation.
