Schaap, T. (author)
In this master thesis the flow behavior and the performance of a bow tunnel thruster at slow forward vessel motion is studied using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The study analyzes the flow and the turning ability for a cylindrical cross-section and the effect of changing the cross-section of the bow tunnel thruster. At Royal IHC it is...

Micropropulsion is universally considered to be a key technology enabling nano- and pico- satellites to perform more complex missions. However, past research has shown that nozzle efficiencies at the microscale are far inferior to their macro scale counterparts. These low efficiencies can be attributed to the relatively high viscous losses...

Cavity buffeting noise is the main contributor to discomfort in sky-dive tunnels. Low frequency noise, generated by self-sustained cavity shear-layer oscillations, similar to automotive sunroof-buffeting noise and side-window buffeting noise, is observed in sky-dive tunnels. Typical low frequencies are not conventionally audible to the human ear...

Experimental fluid dynamics and computational fluid dynamics have traditionally been treated as disparate fields of study. However, each field has its own unique set of advantages and disadvantages. Data assimilation is a field that can be used to leverage some of the advantages each field offers to help compensate mutual<br/>weaknesses. In this...

The keel of a sailing yacht has been shown to constitute a significant part of the overall resistance. Where the details of this effect are not yet fully understood, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis might reveal mechanisms unseen to the experimental eye. An important step in CFD application is the simulation of a number of validation...

Feadship yachts are designed for the leisure and cruising across the oceans. These luxury yachts are mostly powered by diesel engines or in some cases, a diesel-hybrid system. To prevent the inconvenience and the discomfort arising from the diesel exhaust gases for passengers, Feadship yachts are equipped with an underwater exhaust outlet. These...

Pipelines with multiphase flow of gas, oil, and water are commonly used in the oil and gas industry. In the presence of offshore platforms or vessels, the pipeline ends with a vertical riser. A possible new concept is to use a single large diameter pipeline along the sea floor that ends into multiple smaller diameter risers. This concept might...

The graduation project was conducted at the upper stage liquid propulsion department of ArianeGroup at the facilities of Airbus DS, Bremen. Based on a series of past flights of Ariane 5 launcher, the aim is to analyze the fluid motion and the pressure fluctuations in the cryogenic propulsion upper stage Liquid Hydrogen (LH...

Once a semi-submersible is operating at an inconvenient draft (A shallow draft with limited water column above the pontoons), the passing waves over the pontoons can not keep their linear motion and energy will be transferred to higher harmonic wave frequencies. This means the hydrodynamic response will also contain energy at these higher...

An accurate prediction of propeller hull interaction is an important step in the design of a new vessel. The prediction of full-scale flow phenomena, which eliminates scale effects, is becoming available due to increasing computational power. However, the complexity of full-scale CFD calculations combined<br/>with a lack of validation data...

Measurement rate limitations of time-resolved 3D-3C velocity measurements by tomographic PIV limit application of the technique to small measurement volumes and low speed flows (~10 m/s). To reduce the challenging repetition rate requirements historically set by the Nyquist criterion, in the present thesis work a novel method is proposed,...

As hydrocarbon supplies dwindle, technology develops and long-term hydrocarbon prices rise it is becoming more and more economical to develop hydrocarbon fields offshore. An FPSO vessel can be favored as it is flexible, quickly commissioned and cost-effective, be used at all water depths and does not require additional pipelines to shore. To...

In a previous study, the optimal re-entry trajectory of Hyperion-2 has been derived. The mission of the vehicle is to measure hypersonic boundary-layer transition, a phenomena in which the laminar boundary layer turns into a turbulent boundary layer. This is an important feature in hypersonic flow to investigate, as it introduces peak heating...

Horizontal Directional Drilling permits the creation of tunnels which pass beneath rivers and canals to allow the passing of services from one side to the other. The final stage of this process involves lining the tunnel with a plastic or steel pipe. The pipe is pulled inside into the borehole using the same drilling rig that was used to bore...

The influence of laminar-turbulent transition on a propeller blade’s performance has been investigated in this study, both numerically and experimentally. The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is performed using the TAU code developed by the German Aerospace Center, as well as an existing propeller lifting-line code. The laminar-turbulent...

Fuel efficiency is an important factor for the shipping industry both regarding new build vessels and existing vessels. A method to reduce the fuel consumption of existing vessels operating in off design conditions is to trim a vessel in the most optimum trim condition. The current approach to determine the most efficient trim condition is to...

A wedge oscillating vertically at free surface with frequency ranging from wave frequencies and slamming frequencies has been studied. The focus of this work has been on the gravity effect on the vertical forces acting on the wedge, especially the definition of the limits of gravity-dominant and gravity-negligible conditions and quantification...

Brain aneurysms cause almost 500,000 deaths in the world every year. A better understanding of brain aneurysm genesis and rupture may open new opportunities to prevention and treatment. In this study, a part of the cerebral vascular system, the so called circle of Willis including an aneurysm, was analyzed with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)...

With the fluctuating fuel oil prices and increasing environmental awareness more and more attention is given to durable ways of shipping cargo around the world. Reducing fuel consumption by using wind as a source of auxiliary propulsion is one way to achieve that goals. Different projects utilising Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion (WASP) have been...
