Sun, Z. (author)
The micro vortex generator (MVG) is used extensively in low speed aerodynamic problems and is now extended into the supersonic flow regime to solve undesired flow features that are associated with shock wave boundary layer interactions (SWBLI) such as flow separation and associated unsteadiness of the interaction system. Numerous experimental...

The flow of water through a river bend can be characterized as a turbulent open-channel flow that is dominated by streamline curvature. In order to adequately manage the planimetry of meandering rivers and the according safety aspects, the features of the flow and the associated turbulence have to be understood well. This thesis presents results...

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...

Kolkman, P.A. (author)
The objective of this study is to develop design criteria for the dynamic behaviour of gates and valves. To this end, a resume of existing theories is given as well as an extended analysis of the added water mass, hydrodynamic rigidity and damping (also negative damping or self-excitation) and excitation by turbulent flow. New computation...

Kuik, D.J. (author)
In this thesis the transition to turbulence in pipe flow is investigated. At low Reynolds numbers, the flow returns to the laminar state spontaneously. At high Reynolds number a small perturbation causes the flow to suddenly become turbulent. In the intermediate regime localized turbulence is observed. This regime is investigated using...

This thesis studies the hydrodynamics of froth flotation, a process that is used in industry as a means of removing small inclusions from the treated liquid by gas bubble injection. This work is particularly motivated by the removal of aluminium and silicon oxides from liquid steel. Hydrodynamic aspects have a strong influence on the efficiency...

Variations in wind conditions influence the loads on wind turbines significantly. In order to determine these loads it is important that the external conditions are well understood. Wind lidars are well developed nowadays to measure wind profiles upwards from the surface. But how turbulence can be measured using lidars has not yet been...

van Reeuwijk, M. (author)
This dissertation focuses on turbulent thermal convection, which occurs in a wide range of geophysical and engineering situations, such as the atmosphere, the sun, the earth's mantle, indoor climates etc. The first part of the thesis comprises a fundamental study of Rayleigh-BÉnard convection in a domain with aspect-ratio four. An ensemble of...

Humble, R.A. (author)
A fundamental experimental study is carried out to investigate the unsteady flow organization of an incident shock wave/turbulent boundary layer interaction at Mach 2.1. Planar and tomographic particle image velocimetry (PIV) are used in combination with data processing using the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), complemented with hot-wire...

Souverein, L.J. (author)
Shock wave boundary layer interactions (SWBLI) are a common phenomenon in transonic and supersonic flows. The presence of shock waves, induced by specific geometrical configurations, causes a rapid increase of the pressure, which can lead to flow separation. Examples of such interactions are found in amongst others rocket engine nozzles and on...

Two experiments are performed in order to investigate suspended sediment transport in a turbulent open channel flow. The first experiment used particle image velocimetry (PIV) to measure the fluid velocity with a high spatial resolution, while particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) was used to measure the velocity of individual sediment particles....

Harteveld, W.K. (author)
The aim of the thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the hydrodynamics of the gravity driven bubbly flow that can be found in bubble columns. Special attention is paid to the large scale structures that have a strong impact on several key parameters such as the degree of mixing, mass and heat transfer. An experimental investigation has...

In the next decades wind energy is expected to secure a firm share of the total energy production capacity in many countries. To increase competitiveness of wind power with other power sources it is essential to lower the cost of wind energy. Given the design of a turbine, this objective can be attained in several ways, for instance by...

Tokgöz, S. (author)
Taylor-Couette flow is defined as the flow confined between two coaxial cylinders which can rotate independently. Several different flow states can be observed in the gap between the cylinders by changing the rotation speeds and the rotating directions of the cylinders. The aim of this thesis is to investigate the previously reported change of...

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...

Liquid droplets occur in many natural phenomena and play an important role in a large number of industrial applications. One of the distinct properties of droplets as opposed to solid particles is their ability to merge, or coalesce upon collision. Coalescence of liquid drops is of importance in for example the food industry, where the shelf...
