The broadband noise generated by the scattering of turbulent flow at the trailing edge of a NACA 0018 airfoil with trailing edge serrations is investigated, varying both the airfoil angle of attack and serration flap angle. Acoustic emissions from the trailing edge are measured using a microphone array. The noise level is observed to be...

Velocity measurements within the core of high-swirl vortices are often hampered by heavier-than-air particle tracers being centrifuged outside the vortex core region. The use of neutrally buoyant and lighter-than-air tracers is investigated to aim at homogeneous tracers concentration in air flow experiments dealing with high-swirl vortices...

The existing time-resolved tomographic particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements by Jodai and Elsinga (J Fluid Mech 795:611–633; Jodai, Elsinga, J Fluid Mech 795:611–633, 2016) in a turbulent boundary layer (Reθ = 2038) are reprocessed using tomographic particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) and vortex-in-cell-plus (VIC+). The...

The actuator disc (AD) model is commonly used to simplify the simulation of horizontal-axis wind-turbine aerodynamics. The limitations of this approach in reproducing the wake losses in wind farm simulations have been proven by a previous research. The present study is aimed at providing an experimental analysis of the near-wake turbulent flow...

The reliability analysis approach based on combined probability and evidence theory is studied in this paper to address the reliability analysis problem involving both aleatory uncertainties and epistemic uncertainties with flexible intervals (the interval bounds are either fixed or variable as functions of other independent variables). In...

A new system for large-scale tomographic particle image velocimetry in low-speed wind tunnels is presented. The system relies upon the use of sub-millimetre helium-filled soap bubbles as flow tracers, which scatter light with intensity several orders of magnitude higher than micron-sized droplets. With respect to a single bubble generator,...

A new methodology has been developed that integrates the preliminary wing design with trailing edge high-lift systems and accounts for three-dimensional flap kinematics. The high-lift system in the developed application includes the kinematic synthesis of four common mechanisms (dropped-hinge, four-bar, link-track and hooked-track) and a...

The transitional flow features over and downstream of isolated roughness elements in hypersonic flow are investigated by means of infrared thermography. The local heat flux distribution in the wake of the roughness element reveals the footprint of multiple streamwise counter-rotating vortex pairs. The formation of a turbulent wedge with the...

Experiments are conducted that obtain the aerodynamic drag of a sphere towed within a rectangular duct from PIV. The drag force is obtained invoking the time-average momentum equation within a control volume in a frame of reference moving with the object. The sphere with 0.1 m diameter is towed at velocity of 1.5 m/s, corresponding to Re = 10...

The present work follows a previous study on the aerodynamic characterization of helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSBs) for large-scale PIV measurements. HFSBs were found to yield, on average, a time response of about 10s. However, the response of each individual tracer remained to be ascertained, which is the topic of the present study. The...

The transitional flow features past a micro-ramp are investigated in the incompressible flow regime at critical and supercritical roughness-height based Reynolds number (Reh). Tomographic PIV is adopted as the diagnostic technique to identify the instantaneous three-dimensional flow behaviour in the domain of 73 ramp height streamwise. The...

A method is proposed to determine the instantaneous pressure field from a single tomographic PIV velocity snapshot and is applied to a flat-plate turbulent boundary layer. The main concept behind the single-snapshot pressure evaluation method is to approximate the flow acceleration using the vorticity transport equation. The vorticity field...

Boundary layer transition over isolated roughness elements is investigated in the incompressible flow regime using tomographic PIV. Four different geometries (cylinder, square, hemisphere and micro-ramp) are considered maintaining constant height and span of the element. The main target is to compare the different flow topologies and study the...

Aerodynamic drag is computed from velocity measurements obtained with particle image velocimetry (PIV). This allows determining the drag force in combination with the visualization of the flow structures responsible for drag generation. Two experiments are conducted to illustrate the working principle of the approach, which is meant for...

The turbulent wake past an axisymmetric body is investigated with time-resolved stereoscopic particle image velocimetry (PIV) at a Reynolds number ReD = 6.7 × 104 based on the object diameter. The azimuthal organization of the near-wake is studied at different locations downstream of the trailing edge. The time-averaged velocity field features a...

The so-called very-low-frequency (VLF) azimuthal meandering of the reversed-flow region has been shown to contribute significantly to the unsteadiness of the turbulent wake flow past a bluff body of revolution (Rigas et al. 2014; Grandemange et al. 2014). Such an erratic behavior causes a continuous change in the wake topology and, particularly...

Experiments are conducted to determine the drag of a full-scale cyclist model in a wind tunnel at 4 m/s. The aerodynamic drag is evaluated from tomo-PIV measurements in the wake of the model applying the conservation of momentum within a control volume. The measurements are conducted in a thin volume of 100 x 170 x 3 cubic centimeters using...
