This paper reports the results from a turbulent numerical modelling study on the free overfall in a rectangular channel. A wide range of model parameters (i.e. discrete square bar bed roughness, channel slope, and incoming upstream Froude number) is investigated. The water surface profiles, velocity fields and end-depth are simulated and...

This paper outlines the method of a block-structured adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) and its application to the computation of noise radiation from a realistic engine exhaust geometry with flow. The computational model described allows acoustic waves, propagating inside the bypass duct of a generic aircraft engine, to be admitted into a...

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the highly complex interaction between turbulent flow and deep-sea marina structure using a commercial CFD code (FLUENT 6.2) with Large Eddy Simulation (LES) approach. A series of three-dimensional LES of wake flows past overlapping cylinder of finite height are carried out with a range of Reynolds...

In this paper, we present a part of surveillance centric indexing framework aimed at studying the performance of multi-feature fusion technique for indexing objects from surveillance videos. The multi-feature fusion algorithm determines an optimal metric for fusing low-level descriptors extracted from different feature space. These low-level...

A new type of self-healing cementitious composites by using organic microcapsules is designed in Guangdong Key Laboratory of Durability for Coastal Civil Engineering, Shenzhen University. For the organic microcapsules, the shell material is urea formoldehyde (UF), and the core healing agent is Epoxy. The effect of organic microcapsules on...

For a microcapsule based self-healing system in the cementitious material, a fundamental issue is to find and facilitate a suitable microcapsule system, concerning either the material selection or design and manufacture process. In this study, urea formaldehyde resin is used for the shell of microcapsule, and bisphenol – an epoxy resin E-51...

The CaCO3-mineralizing bacteria from different taxonomic groups have shown potential in restoration of construction material such as concretes, cements and stony materials. However, these strains are far from the demand of practical application due to some shortages, including the low mineralizing capacity. In this work, an integrated high...

Autonomic self-healing thermosetting polymers or elastomers have been substantially studied, in which polymerization of the healing agents released from pre-embedded capsules serves as the key issue. As for thermoplastics, another major class of polymeric materials, however, researches on their self-healing approaches are less reported. Here in...

An international cooperation research project has been financially supported by China Nature Science Foundation, which consists of three relatively independent, but strategically integrated research sub-programs, aiming at the formation of a selfhealing system based on the microcapsule principle for the cementitious composites. In this paper, a...

Crack is called the intrinsic flaw of concrete that is inevitable for concrete infrastructures during their service life. The presence of crack offer aggressive agent access to pass through, which has a direct impact on durability, therefore resulting in shortened service life. Nevertheless, the influence of crack on the durability can be...

The outcomes of a preliminary experimental programme into a gel-based healing system that allows immediate healing of cementitious materials followed by longerterm development of robust healing through biological processes are reported. Alginate gels protect and maintain the viability of encapsulated microorganisms and have been used for...

Steels are among the most widely used construction materials as their mechanical properties can be tuned over a very wide range of desired combinations of strength formability and other properties. However, when exposed for long times to high temperatures steel components can exhibit premature and low-ductility creep fracture, which arises from...

Generally, intrinsic self-healing polymers based on reversible covalent bonds scission and reconnection would lose their load bearing capability as a result of molecular cleavage during healing process. This shortcoming also results in creep deformation of the products. To solve the problem, we introduce a novel healing mechanism by using...

Hydrophobic materials hold many properties that are desirable in coatings, e.g. water repellency and low-adhesion are essential to achieve an easy-to-clean/ self-cleaning behavior. However, most of the coatings currently available cannot maintain their hydrophobicity upon surface damage or wear, due to the irreversible loss of the low surface...

Rough-wall turbulent channel flow is investigated via time-resolved tomographic particle image velocimetry (TPIV). To facilitate 3D measurements in the bulk flow as well as very close to the rough surface the optical refractive index of the transparent acrylic channel wall is matched with that of the liquid, a concentrated solution of sodium...

Gulou is a type of building found in ethnic Dong people’s settlements in south west China. It plays a significant role in the traditional Dong architecture and shows both social and technical values. In the near future the technique as an intangible culture heritage would face the risk of extinction because of globalization. The paper argues...

Compressible Rayleigh-Taylor turbulent mixing (CRTM) induced by Rayleigh-Taylor instability occurs when a compressible fluid of heavy density is accelerated or supported against gravity by a compressible fluid of light density, and is of fundamental importance in applications from combustion, to inertial confinement fusion, and to astrophysics....

The validity of the recently proposed hypothesis that the influence of large-scale motions on the near-wall turbulence is quasisteady is investigated by quantitative comparisons with the data obtained by direct numerical simulations of a turbulent channel flow. Large-scale motions are filtered by a Fourier cut-off filter multi-objectively...

The behavior of particles in compressible turbulence has been seldom investigated to date despite its importance in many natural and industrial flows. Direct numerical simulations of particle-laden compressible isotropic turbulence are performed to study the preferential concentration of particles and the underling mechanisms. It turns out that...
