This thesis work illustrates the first of its kind solution to this problem of lack of seeding at vortex core in air flows, by the use of Helium Filled Soap Bubble (HFSB) which is a neutrally buoyant tracer particle in air flows. To analyse the lack of seeding in the vortex core, a 2D numerical simulation of particle motion in vortex flow is...

Hartuç, T. (author)
In this thesis both Wake Ingestion (WI) and Boundary Layer Ingestion (BLI) configurations have been investigated and analyzed with respect to their application to aircraft design. WI and BLI in the context used here means positioning the engine such that it ingests boundary layer fluid for the purpose of saving shaft-power. This research...

Measurement rate limitations of time-resolved 3D-3C velocity measurements by tomographic PIV limit application of the technique to small measurement volumes and low speed flows (~10 m/s). To reduce the challenging repetition rate requirements historically set by the Nyquist criterion, in the present thesis work a novel method is proposed,...

The micro vortex generator (MVG) is used extensively in low speed aerodynamic problems and is now extended into the supersonic flow regime to solve undesired flow features that are associated with shock wave boundary layer interactions (SWBLI) such as flow separation and associated unsteadiness of the interaction system. Numerous experimental...

Micallef, D. (author)
Investigating the flow physics in the vicinity of the wind turbine blade is a challenging endeavour. In the past, focus was placed on the understanding of near wake flows arising from wake vorticity and the rotor loading. In this work, a different approach is taken by considering the flow field in the blade vicinity as a consequence of the...

The work explores the use of time-resolved tomographic PIV measurements to study a flapping-wing model, the related vortex generation mechanisms and the effect of wing flexibility on the clap-and-fling movement in particular. An experimental setup is designed and realized in a water tank by use of a single wing model and a mirror plate to...

The aim of the thesis is to measure the propeller slipstream properties (velocity and vorticity) and to assess the unsteady and instantaneous behavior of the propeller flow field at high disk loadings, zero thrust and thrust reverse using the image based measurement techniques. Along with its implementation of the techniques in industrial...

The unsteady flow conditions experienced by wind turbine blades lead to fatigue loads due to gusts, that increase the cost of energy. The decrease of the impact of these unsteady loads will most certainly lead to a decrease of the cost of energy. In order to alleviate unsteady loads the Smart Rotor Blade approach [2] applies spanwise-distributed...

The present work investigates the flow around a two-dimensional square section object at varying angles of incidence. The experimental approach employs Particle Image Velocimetry for the determination of the time-averaged velocity field and the unsteady large scale coherent variations (e.g. vortex shedding) as well as turbulent fluctuations. The...
