For heavy duty diesel engines, piston temperature control is very important in constructing a successful design that meets the demands of increasing power output and stringent emission regulations. Overheating of piston is avoided with engine oil through spray cooling and gallery cooling processes. In this research project, evolution and...

Pipelines with multiphase flow of gas, oil, and water are commonly used in the oil and gas industry. In the presence of offshore platforms or vessels, the pipeline ends with a vertical riser. A possible new concept is to use a single large diameter pipeline along the sea floor that ends into multiple smaller diameter risers. This concept might...

The piston is the only moving part in the combustion chamber of an internal combustion engine. With the ever increasing demand for higher power output, the control of piston temperatures has become one of the determining factors in a modern successful engine design. Because of the highly dynamic environment created by the reciprocating piston,...

Jet impingement is a subject of extensive research over the years due to its industrial importance and the fundamental physics of heat transfer and turbulence. These jets generate high heat transfer rates with better uniformity on the surface which is to be heated or cooled compared to other heat transfer techniques. However, to study the flow...

Large Eddy Simulations (LES) of a novel type of wing/body junction called the anti-fairing are performed in the current thesis to study the complex turbulent flow physics involved in the junction area and also to obtain a clear understanding of the drag reduction capabilities of the anti-fairing. In regards to that, two separate LES are...

The computation of complex turbulent flows design optimization processes is currently limited by the lack of accuracy of Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) in massively separated flows and the infeasible cost of multiple Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) evaluations. A novel method is presented, injecting data from LES or other high-fidelity...

The aerodynamic drag force is a crucial factor for passenger cars and trucks, where fuel economy is of utmost importance. While a lot of research has been performed to optimize the design of the upper-body of the vehicle, the flow over a rotating wheel that is enclosed by a wheelhouse is not understood to the same level. Estimates show that the...

Granular bed protections are a common measure to mitigate scour of the sand bed around hydraulic structures. In view of marching towards cost-effective solutions to tackle erosion-related problems, it is important to accurately predict the loads exerted on the bed and come up with the needed rock grading. To that end, a 3-D eddy resolving...

High-fidelity optimisation studies are a useful asset in the design of critical components for large gas turbines. These studies require the computation of numerous computationally expensive CFD simulations and result in predominantly optimisation graphs of design objectives (e.g. Pareto-front figure). The quantity of generated data is...
