The wake recovery from planar porous actuators that surrogate the effect of wind turbines is investigated, focusing on rectangular shapes for vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs). We proposed an effective mixing diameter D∗ to scale the streamwise momentum recovery for actuators of arbitrary shape. The length-scale D∗ is given by the ratio...

State observer techniques are investigated for the assimilation of three-dimensional velocity measurements into computational fluid dynamics simulations based on Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) equations. The method relies on a forcing term, or observer, in the momentum equation, stemming from the difference between the computed velocity...

The behaviour of nearly neutrally buoyant tracers is studied by means of experiments with helium-filled soap bubbles and numerical simulations. The current models used for estimating the slip velocity of heavy micro particles and neutrally buoyant particles are reviewed and extended to include the effect of unsteady forces and particle...

The aerodynamic drag of a trailing cyclists in a tandem formation is investigated at different lateral and longitudinal separations. A Ring of Fire (RoF) experiment is conducted at the Tom Dumoulin bike park of Sittard-Geleen in the Netherlands.

Abstract: A method to identify the surface of solid models immersed in fluid flows is devised that examines the spatial distribution of flow tracers. The fluid–solid interface is associated with the distance from the center of a circle to the centroid of the tracers ensemble captured within it. The theoretical foundation of the method is...

An experimental approach for the measurement of the time-average fluid flow pressure over the surface of generic three-dimensional objects is presented. The method is based on robotic volumetric PTV measurements followed by the integration of the pressure gradient. The domain for pressure evaluation is subdivided in two parts: in the...

A novel approach is investigated to extend the range of measurable velocities by 3D-PTV systems. The method is specifically conceived for robotic volumetric PTV measurements, but it has applications for other similar techniques. The multi-Δt method relies upon combining the information from two or more sets of double-frame images with pulse...

The Reynolds number effects on body limbs of a cyclist model, namely leg and arm, are investigated via robotic volumetric Particle Image Velocimetry measurements in the velocity range from 5 ​m/s to 25 ​m/s. The near wakes of such body limbs feature recirculation regions whose width and length are governed not only by the taper of the body...

Abstract: Measurements of distributed surface pressure fluctuations over trailing-edge serrations at a Reynolds number Re <sub>θ</sub> = 4900 are performed with time-resolved 3D particle imaging velocimetry using helium filled soap bubbles as flow tracers. The sparse velocity vector field obtained with Lagrangian particle tracking is densely...

The Ring of Fire (RoF) measurement concept to perform on-site experiments of aerodynamic drag for transiting objects is investigated with a study that identifies the main sources of uncertainty. The main contributors to the uncertainty of the drag measurement are examined for the case of a cyclist riding through the measurement domain. A...

The reduction of turbulent skin-friction drag and the response of vortical structures in a zero-pressure gradient, turbulent boundary layer subjected to spanwise wall oscillation is investigated using planar and tomographic particle image velocimetry (PIV). The experiments are conducted at a momentum based Reynolds number of 1000, while the...

Wind tunnel experiments on a scaled vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) and square porous plate with a porosity of 64% are conducted in the W-tunnel of TU-Delft. The VAWT thrusts in axial and lateral directions are measured with an in-house load cell system based on moment conservation. Wake of the VAWT in tip speed ratio of 1.5 and 2.5 and the...

This work evaluates the use of helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSB) for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements at high Reynolds numbers (up to 3.2 million) in aeronautics. The measurements are performed in the Low Speed Tunnel (LST) of the German-Dutch Wind Tunnels (DNW) using a high-lift airfoil in close-to-stall conditions up to 70 m/s....

A novel approach is introduced to enlarge the range of measurable velocities by PTV systems. The approach relies upon the acquisition of two or more sets of double-frame images with increasing pulse separation time Δt. The underlying principle is that measurements with a short Δt yield a velocity field with high percentage of valid vectors, but...

A multi-model method for static pressure evaluations based on 3D PTV data is presented. The volumetric measurement domain is partitioned into an irrotational part where pressure is evaluated in a point-wise manner through Bernoulli’s equation, and a rotational domain where the pressure gradient is spatially integrated. In a third step, the field...

The operating regimes of an orifice-type helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSB) generator are investigated for several combinations of air, helium and soap flow rates to establish the properties of the production process and the resulting tracers. The geometrical properties of the bubbles, the production regimes and the production rates are studied...

The time-segment assimilation (TSA) method levers upon the spatio-temporal information from a finite number of successive time samples of particle velocity, coming from PTV and STB, into a refined spatial reconstruction of the velocity field of the flow. The method recently introduced by Schneiders and Scarano (2018) is elaborated here further...
