A numerical analysis based on a finite volume approach is employed for a 2-D axisymmetric, incompressible, laminar and transient flow in order to simulate the pulsatile blood flow in aneurysm. The unsteady nature of the blood is studied for three Womersley numbers and for three rheological models including Newtonian, Power law and Quemada. A...

This paper focuses on the derivation of design prop loads for supported excavations in stiff clay with increasing excavation depth and number of prop levels. For multi-propped walls there are a number of empirical graphs to obtain the design prop forces. CIRIA C517 (Twine & Roscoe, 1999) enhancing Terzaghi & Peck's work (Terzaghi & Peck (1967)...

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...

Aerospike nozzles are known to produce more thrust than conventional convergent-divergent nozzles in off-design conditions because of their capability to adapt their boundaries to ambient conditions. However, the central plug of an ideal aerospike nozzle can be very long and heavy, and its sharp end is susceptible to deformation in high...

Multi-asset options are based on more than one underlying asset, in contrast to standard vanilla options. A very significant problem within the pricing techniques for multi-asset options is the curse of dimensionality. This curse of dimensionality is the exponential growth of the complexity of the problem when the dimensionality increases,...

Van 't Wout, E. (author)
The aim of this thesis is to design a computational method that can be used in modern stealth technology. In particular, the computational method should be capable to simulate scattering of ultra-wideband radar signals for military aircraft constructed with ferromagnetic radar absorbent materials. A full-wave boundary element method has been...

A general model is presented for short-range hydrodynamic interactions and head-on particle-particle/wall collisions. The model has been embedded in two distinct numerical methods for fully resolved simulation of finite-size particles in a viscous fluid. It accounts for the material properties of the particles and lubrication effects prior to...

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...

This paper presents results for the behavior of particle-laden gases in a small Reynolds number vertical channel down flow. Results will be presented for the effects of particle feedback on the gas-phase turbulence and for the concentration profile of the particles. The effects of density ratio, mass loading, and particle inertia will be...

Kenjeres, S. (author)
Motivated by the concept of interdependency of turbulent flow and electromagnetic fields inside the spiraling galaxies, we explored the possibilities of generating a localized Lorentz force that will produce a three-dimensional swirling flow in weakly conductive fluids. Multiple vortical flow patterns were generated by combining arrays of...

The Enskog theory for the self-diffusion coefficient for fluids with continuous potentials, such as the Lennard-Jones, is developed. Starting from the Green–Kubo formula (rather than the conventional kinetic equation) and introducing the similar assumptions upon which the Boltzmann equation is based, we derived a general expression for the...

Motivated by the need to predict vortex cavitation inception, a study has been conducted to investigate bubble capture by a concentrated line vortex of core size rc and circulation ?0 under noncavitating and cavitating conditions. Direct numerical simulations that solve simultaneously for the two phase flow field, as well as a simpler one-way...

The variational multiscale method has been shown to perform well for large-eddy simulation (LES) of turbulent flows. The method relies upon a partition of the resolved velocity field into large- and small-scale components. The subgrid model then acts only on the small scales of motion, unlike conventional LES models which act on all scales of...

NLR mainly performs applied scientific research for use in the aerospace industry. In many cases the product has the form of an information system for the design, production and usage of aerospace vehicles. Within this context, the mathematician contributes, in cooperation with specialists from other disciplines such as aerodynamics, structures,...
