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...

Tomographic Particle Image Velocimetry is a new experimental method developed to study three-dimensional motion in turbulent flows. The technique is an extension of standard PIV and makes use of several simultaneous views of illuminated tracer particles and their three-dimensional reconstruction as a light intensity distribution by means of...

Hofland, B. (author)
Layers of stone or rock are often applied around hydraulic structures to protect the sand bed from scouring. Determining the size of the rocks is complicated by the fact that the flow over a bed protection usually is non-uniform. This thesis describes two experimental series in which the stability of a single stone under non-uniform flows is...

Because of their high efficiency and their ability to provide high heat transfer rates, impinging jets are applied for rapid cooling and heating in a wide variety of industrial processes. However, the physical phenomena controlling the heat transfer from impinging jets are to a large degree unknown. The goal of the present project was to gain a...
