Verdoold, J. (author)
This dissertation focuses on turbulent thermal convection, which occurs in a wide range of (geo)physical situations, like in the atmosphere, the oceans, the interior of stars or planets, and engineering applications, like metal casting or crystal growth processes. In this work, a special type of thermal convection, Rayleigh-Bénard convection, is...

Lely, M.S. (author)
Most estuarine, and some coastal, areas are characterised by large amounts of fine-grained cohesive and non-cohesive sediments. At sufficiently high concentrations, sediment transport in suspension may significantly influence the hydrodynamics. In sediment-laden flow with concentrations of approximately, stratification may occur due to a...

van Reeuwijk, M. (author)
This dissertation focuses on turbulent thermal convection, which occurs in a wide range of geophysical and engineering situations, such as the atmosphere, the sun, the earth's mantle, indoor climates etc. The first part of the thesis comprises a fundamental study of Rayleigh-BÉnard convection in a domain with aspect-ratio four. An ensemble of...
