Highly porous materials are found in various industrial applications and environmental flows. In previous studies it was found that a turbulent flow along a highly porous wall experiences a higher skin friction as compared to a solid wall with similar surface roughness when the socalled permeability Reynolds number (Re_K) is larger than O(1)....conference paper 2015

The use of drag reducing surface textures is a promising passive method to reduce fuel consumption. Probably most wellknown is the utilisation of sharkskin inspired ridges or riblets parallel to the mean flow. They can reduce drag up to 10%. Recently another bioinspired texture based on bird flight feather riblets has been proposed. It differs...conference paper 2015

Inertial regimes in a channel flow of suspension of finitesize neutrally buoyant particles are studied for a wide range of Reynolds numbers: $500 \le Re\le 5000$, and particle volume fractions: $0 \le \Phi \le 0.3$. The flow is classified in three different regimes according to the phaseaveraged stress budget across the channel \cite...conference paper 2015

Lashgari, I. (author), Picano, F. (author), Breugem, W.P. (author), Brandt, L. (author)We study the transition from laminar to turbulent flow in a channel seeded with finitesize neutrally buoyant particles. A fixed ratio of 10 between the channel height and the particle diameter is considered. The flow is examined in the range of Reynolds numbers 500 ? Re ? 5000 and the particle volume fractions 0.001 ? ? ? 0.3. We report a non...journal article 2015

Lashgari, I. (author), Picano, F. (author), Breugem, W.P. (author), Brandt, L. (author)The aim of this Letter is to characterize the flow regimes of suspensions of finitesize rigid particles in a viscous fluid at finite inertia. We explore the system behavior as a function of the particle volume fraction and the Reynolds number (the ratio of flow and particle inertia to viscous forces). Unlike singlephase flows, where a clear...journal article 2014

Lambert, R.A. (author), Picano, F. (author), Breugem, W.P. (author), Brandt, L. (author)A numerical study of swimming particle motion and nutrient transport is conducted for a semidilute to dense suspension in a thin film. The steady squirmer model is used to represent the motion of living cells in suspension with the nutrient uptake by swimming particles modelled using a firstorder kinetic equation representing the absorption...journal article 2013

Picano, F. (author), Breugem, W.P. (author), Mitra, D. (author), Brandt, L. (author)Shear thickening appears as an increase of the viscosity of a dense suspension with the shear rate, sometimes sudden and violent at high volume fraction. Its origin for noncolloidal suspension with nonnegligible inertial effects is still debated. Here we consider a simple shear flow and demonstrate that fluid inertia causes a strong...journal article 2013

(author)A general model is presented for shortrange hydrodynamic interactions and headon particleparticle/wall collisions. The model has been embedded in two distinct numerical methods for fully resolved simulation of finitesize particles in a viscous fluid. It accounts for the material properties of the particles and lubrication effects prior to...journal article 2013

Francesco, Picano (author), Breugem, W.P. (author), Luca, Brandt (author)Suspensions are often found in different processes and applications, e.g. sediment transport in environments or pharmaceutical engineering. The laminar regime in the semidilute or dense cases, non vanishing volume fraction, is usually characterized by the sometime spectacular rheological properties induced by the suspended phase. Much less...conference paper 2013

Goudar Vishwanathappa, M. (author), Breugem, W.P. (author), Elsinga, G.E. (author)For channel flow, we explore how a hairpin eddy may reach a threshold strength required to produce additional hairpins by means of autogeneration. This is done by studying the interaction of two eddies with different initial strengths (but both below the threshold strength), initial sizes and initial streamwise spacing between them. The...conference paper 2013

Hussong, J. (author), Breugem, W.P. (author), Westerweel, J. (author)In this numerical study we investigate the flow induced by metachronal coordination between beating cilia arranged in a densely packed layer by means of a continuum model. The continuum approach allows us to treat the problem as twodimensional as well as stationary, in a reference frame moving with the speed of the metachronal wave. The model...journal article 2011

Boersma, B.J. (author), Breugem, W.P. (author)In this paper we consider a fully developed turbulent flow in a round pipe with a small inner annulus. The diameter of the inner annulus is less than 10% of the diameter of the outer pipe. As a consequence, the surface area of the inner pipe compared to the outer pipe is small. The friction exerted by the wall on the flow is proportional to the...journal article 2010

Breugem, W.P. (author)The study of flows over permeable walls is relevant to many applications. Examples are flows over and through porous river beds, vegetation, snow, heat exchangers of foam metal, and oil wells. The main objectives of this thesis are to gain insight in the influence of wall permeability on both laminar and turbulent flows, and to develop a...doctoral thesis 2005
