Laser light reflection mitigation in Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is crucial for accurate flow<br/>field measurements. While numerous methods exist for planar PIV, fewer have been developed for volumetric PIV systems, especially for coaxial setups like Robotic PIV. Light reflections in volumetric PIV experiments result in high-intensity...

Inspired by the leading-edge protuberances found on the flippers of humpback whales, tubercles have drawn significant interest for improving airfoil aerodynamic performance. In static conditions, airfoils with tubercles exhibit a softer onset of stall and increased lift in post-stall regime, though with a reduced maximum lift coefficient....

This study explores the flowfield around a pusher propeller-wing configuration using Lagrangian Particle Tracking (LPT). It assesses LPT’s capability to characterise propeller-wing interactions, emphasising its ability to resolve complex flow dynamics.<br/><br/>The experiment successfully achieves high particle concentrations downstream of the...

As the world grapples with the challenges of global warming, there has been a significant push for the development of new methods of harnessing renewable energy. Energy harvesters have been a new avenue to generate electrical power locally for remote applications. An energy harvester is a device that taps into aeroelastic phenomena to convert...

This work provides a foundation for designing aerodynamic mudflaps used in heavy-duty vehicles, which will help these vehicles become greener. First, a simulated moving ground consisting of a leading edge, roller setup and a novel tangential blowing system was devised as an alternative to the expensive conveyor belts necessary for pertinent...

In the European Union greenhouse gas emissions of heavy duty vehicles make up 30% of the total caused by road transport. By placing vehicles in a platoon configuration the aerodynamic drag can be heavily reduced. The effect of platooning has been studied on both American and European type vehicles. However many of these studies only disclose the...

Junction flow denotes the fluid phenomenon where the flow on a flat surface encounters a protuberance. This type of flow, which is highly three-dimensional, turbulent and unsteady, usually leads to the generation of a Horseshoe vortex at the obstacle's leading edge. Existing extensive experimental and numerical studies focus on the inception of...

In the context of the ongoing research regarding boundary layer transition, this project aims to study the effects of isolated cylindrical roughness elements on the transition from laminar to turbulent flow in a swept wing boundary layer. The project entails experimental campaigns: the 45 degrees swept wing model is placed inside the test...
