Phase change materials (PCMs) are materials that can store large amounts of heat during their phase transition from solid to liquid without a significant increase in temperature. While going from liquid to solid this heat is again released. As such, these materials can play an important role in future energy-efficient buildings. If applied in...

The current understanding of the transport phenomena involved in the operation of industrial fermenters is not sufficient. This is reflected by the limitations seen in their design and operation. A better insight in the local processes taking place (hydrodynamics, gas dispersion, mixing, microbial kinetics) is required to be able to make a step...

In the present study, we address the development and application of an efficient tool for conversion of results obtained by an integrated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational reaction dynamics (CRD) approach and their visualization in the Google Earth. We focus on results typical for environmental fluid mechanics studies at a...

A Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes computational fluid dynamics (RANS-CFD) package will be one of the primary tools used during the development of a performance prediction program for Wind-Assisted commercial ships. The modelling challenge presented by large separated flow structures in the wake of the sailing ship points to a conscientious...

This paper summarises the design of a gust generator and the comparison between high fidelity numerical results and experimental results. The gust generator has been designed for a low subsonic wind tunnel in order to perform gust response experiments on wings and assess load alleviation. Special attention has been given to the different design...

Being able to accurately determine weir discharges is of key importance in urban water management. The most common method is performing a level measurement and calculating the discharge using the standard weir equation. Since this equation is only valid in certain conditions, this can lead to large deviations from the actual discharge. In this...

This paper studies a new preconditioning technique for sparse systems arising from discretized partial differential equations (PDEs) in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), which exploit the multilevel sequentially semiseparable (MSSS) structure of the system matrix. MSSS matrix computations give a data-sparse way to approximate the LU...

In chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear protective clothing, a layer of activated carbon material in between two textile layers provides protection against hazardous gases. A cylinder in cross flow, sheathed by such material, is generally used to experimentally test the garment properties. This is, however, complicated and predictive...

Rotary kilns are used in many industrial processes ranging from cement manufacturing to waste incineration. The operating conditions vary widely depending on the process. While there are many models available within the literature and industry, the wide range of operating conditions justifies further modeling work to improve the understanding of...

The present work explores the massively parallel capabilities of the most advanced architecture of graphics processing units (GPUs) code named “Fermi”, on a two-dimensional unstructured cell-centred finite volume code. We use the SIMPLE algorithm to solve the continuity and momentum equations that was fully ported to the GPU. The benefits of...

This study presents a finite volume hydrodynamic model for shallow water flow that computes on a coarse grid, but accounts for high-resolution bathymetry and roughness variations on a subgrid. The detailed information can be incorporated by using the assumption of a uniform flow direction and a uniform friction slope within a part of a coarse...

Dust emissions can have significant effects on the human health, environment and industry equipment. Understanding the dust generation process helps to select a suitable dust preventing approach and also is useful to evaluate the environmental impact of dust emission. To describe these processes, numerical methods such as Computational Fluid...

A numerical study has been made of horizontal core-annular flow: the flow of a high-viscosity liquid core surrounded by a low-viscosity liquid annular layer through a horizontal pipe. Special attention is paid to the question how the buoyancy force on the core, caused by a density difference between the core and the annular layer, is...

Modeling of low-Capillary number segmented flows in microchannels is important for the design of microfluidic devices. We present numerical validations of microfluidic flow simulations using the volume-of-fluid (VOF) method as implemented in OpenFOAM. Two benchmark cases were investigated to ensure the reliability of OpenFOAM in modeling complex...

The physical behavior of open-cell foams depends on their microscopic structure. An open-cell geometrical model is proposed, which can serve as the basis for a future macroscopic analysis. The strut geometry is of particular interest, as it is reported to have substantial influence on the occurring thermo-hydraulic and mechanical phenomena....

In this paper a Two-Step approach is presented for uncertainty quantification for expensive problems with multiple uncertain parameters. Both steps are performed using the Probabilistic Collocation method. The first step consists of a sensitivity analysis to identify the most important parameters of the problem. The sensitivity derivatives are...

Computational fluid-structure interaction is most commonly performed using a partitioned approach. For strongly coupled problems sub-iterations are required, increasing computational time as flow and structure have to be resolved multiple times every time step. Many sub-iteration techniques exist that improve robustness and convergence, although...

A monomial chaos approach is presented for efficient uncertainty quantification in nonlinear computational problems. Propagating uncertainty through nonlinear equations can be computationally intensive for existing uncertainty quantification methods. It usually results in a set of nonlinear equations which can be coupled. The proposed monomial...
