As the number of flights in the United States continues to rise steadily, an equally amplified need for reliability and safety has come to the forefront of aviation research. One of the most alarming trends is the number of general aviation (GA) accidents during severe weather events that occur yearly, with fatalities occurring in more than half...

One of the expected key outcomes of the Horizon 2020 BAMB (Buildings As Material Banks) project is new business models for material circularity. The team has interviewed four “frontrunner” cases which have pioneered in incorporating elements of building circularity. The study included well-known cases such as the new Venlo city hall (the...

During geotechnical site characterization, many geotechnical properties might be difficult to measure directly and have to be estimated using indirect measurement and regression models. For example, when there is no possibility of direct compression test, geotechnical engineers and practitioners may utilize regression models (i.e. equations) to...

The evolution of coherent structures in a flat plate boundary layer transition induced by the cylinder wake is investigated using the particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique. The finite-time Lyapunov exponent (FTLE), which characterizes the amount of stretching about the flow trajectory, is used to extract the Lagrangian coherent structures....

The interaction of different scales is among the most interesting and challenging features in turbulence research. Existing approaches used for scaling analysis such as structure-function and Fourier spectrum method have their respective limitations, for instance scale mixing, i.e. the so-called infrared and ultraviolet effects. To make...

Direct numerical simulations (DNS) of a transient turbulent channel flow subject to constant temporal acceleration have been performed with a final Reynolds number of $\Retau=800$. The response of turbulent structures to the temporal acceleration is investigated. A significant delay in the response of turbulent flow is observed in various...

As one of the most important components of a flapping-wing micro air vehicle (FWMAV), the design of an energy-efficient flapping-wing has been a research interest recently. Research on insect flight from different perspectives has been carried out, mainly with regard to wing morphology, flapping kinematics, and unsteady aerodynamics. However,...

In this paper, a steady 3D numerical study has been conducted on a 90 mm counter rotating lift fan to investigate its aerodynamic performance. The effect of axial distance between the fans and rotor speed are studied. A low thrust generation has been revealed from the simulation results due to the unfavourable working condition for the upstream...

In this paper, we propose an approach to autonomously control a quadrotor micro aerial vehicle (MAV). With take-off weight of 50 g and 8-min flight endurance, the MAV platform codenamed ‘KayLion’ developed by the National University of Singapore (NUS) is able to perform autonomous flight with pre-planned path tracking. The vision-based...

In this paper, a numerical study on the behaviours of a ship passing through a lock under the influence of a berthed ship is carried out. The viscous flow and hydrodynamic forces are calculated by applying an unsteady RANS code with a RNG k-å turbulence model. UDF is compiled to define the ship motion. The numerical results are obtained and...

This research aimed to explore the energy savings through the use of smart control as well as ceiling fan in intelligent building. As the energy consumption of air-conditioning (AC) accounts for about 40% of total residential energy, therefore, applying smart control system to the use of AC to achieve the effects of comfy and energy savings...

Ultrasound-driven gas bubbles can be used as active actuators to create or modify the flow in microfluidic devices. Oscillating bubbles are able to create a steady streaming flow that can be used to perform several tasks in microfluidic devices. In this work, we focus on a specific configuration with a bubble located at a side wall of a...

In this paper, echo-PIV and UDV technique were applied to measure the velocity fields of a pipe flow system. The working fluid is mixture of water and kaolin particle. The flow rate of mixture is 0.15 lpm. The error of peak velocity between echo-PIV and UDV were obtained and compared with the theoretical values. This study indicates the...

Self-healing concrete is regarded as a promising solution to reduce the high maintenance and repair cost of concrete infrastructure. Due to the limited autogenous healing capacity of concrete as such, additives are needed to enhance its self-healing properties. Among various strategies, microbial-based self-healing has gained increasing...
