How to create an article in the ZWI file format

February 19, 2024 - Reading time: 3 minutes

This short tutorial describes how to create an article in the ZWI file format developed for the Encyclosphere project. ZWI files with articles can be created either from existing articles in the HTML format, or writing a completely new article and then exporting it to the ZWI file format.

The Encyclosphere Is Greater than Wikipedia

August 1, 2023 - Reading time: 7 minutes

Wikipedia is just one encyclopedia, a ridiculously biased on. The collection of all the encyclopedias—that is what I mean by “the encyclosphere”—is more wide-ranging, fairer, and much larger. It contains sometimes surprising and, in 2023, delightful variety. Articles in other sources are frequently much more credible than those in Wikipedia. Limiting yourself to Wikipedia is like limiting yourself to just the mainstream media sources for your news. Why would you do that to yourself?

Top 5 Wikipedia alternatives you should know about in 2023

July 14, 2023 - Reading time: 4 minutes

In 2023 Wikipedia remains the world's biggest information resource used by  communities of volunteers. Most of the other encyclopedic resources are smaller in size  but, compared to Wikipedia,  they are designed for specific areas of expertise and, typically, are maintained by non-for-profit organizations or persons with significant knowledge of specific topics. In many cases, they also have alternative publication policies for accepting online content, as well as the dispute resolution policies which have become  increasingly important for the resources edited by large communities of experts.

Applications of CFD simulation in hydrogen fuel production

June 13, 2023 - Reading time: 4 minutes

Hydrogen Storage Tank

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation can be applied in various aspects of hydrogen fuel production to optimize the design and operation of hydrogen production processes.

CFD can be used to simulate and analyze the fluid flow, heat transfer and chemical reactions occurring in different types of reactors used for hydrogen production, such as steam methane reformers (SMR), autothermal reformers (ATR) or solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOEC). By modeling the complex fluid dynamics and reaction kinetics, CFD helps in designing efficient reactors, optimizing operating conditions and improving overall process performance. It can aid in the design and analysis of hydrogen storage systems, such as high-pressure tanks or metal hydrides. It can help optimize the storage vessel geometry, assess the distribution of hydrogen within the storage system, analyze the release and dispersion of hydrogen during refueling or in case of accidental leaks.
