In the current state of model-based wind farm flow control, the implementation of yaw-based wake steering based on steady-state models has demonstrated potential for improving wind farm power production. However, for realistic, time-varying wind directions, the dynamics of wake propagation may impact the effectiveness of wake redirection. This...

Many patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) depend on mechanical ventilation due to conditions such as severe lung disease, traumatic brain injury, or postoperative coma. While mechanical ventilation is a potentially life-saving intervention, it also has harmful side effects. Especially in patients with lung disease, such as the acute...

Stable delivery of liquids to microfluidic systems is essential for their reproducible functioning, especially when supplying flows to organs-on-chips – delicate living models that recreate human physiology on the microscale and thus can be used to reduce the need for animal testing. Most flow control systems are unable to sustain a robust...

Turbulent drag reduction (DR) is a crucial research area, as this can contribute to significant energy and emission reductions in various industrial and transportation applications. One such technique is the active flow control method of spanwise forcing. Spanwise forcing introduces a spatio-temporal spanwise wall oscillation as a boundary...

Surfaces that induce slip at the wall have been shown to reduce skin friction drag in the turbulent regime. While superhydrophobic and liquid-infused surfaces are capable of drag reduction in turbulent hydrodynamic flows, neither would be feasible in aerodynamic applications due to the added roughness and the minuscule slip lengths created by...

The platform carrying capacity of urban rail transit stations is limited and overcrowding of the platform will lead to serious safety risks for passengers and trains. It is significant to collaborate on the optimization of passenger flow strategy and skip-stopping scheme to alleviate traffic pressure and ensure platform safety. This study...

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) is an active research subject as its proposed applications are increasing. UTM aims to enable a variety of UAS operations, including package delivery, infrastructure inspection, and emergency missions. That creates the need for extensive research on how to incorporate such traffic, as...

Organ-on-a-chip (OoC) devices require the precise control of various media. This is mostly done using several fluid control components, which are much larger than the typical OoC device and connected through fluidic tubing, i.e., the fluidic system is not integrated, which inhibits the system’s portability. Here, we explore the limits of...

The unbalanced power between positive and negative poles in a bipolar DC distribution network (DC-DN) generates an unbalanced current at the neutral line, which enlarges the power losses of the system and the voltage deviation of DC loads. An unbalanced power suppression strategy based on a series-parallel power flow controller (SP-PFC) is...

Flat surfaces with arrays of wall-normal pores called micro-cavity arrays have shown potential to reduce turbulent skin friction drag. Their designs have been inspired by acoustic liners which are sandwich panels consisting of a honeycomb core, a perforated top plate and a solid back sheet used on...

An experimental study is presented towards inner-scaled Helmholtz-Resonators (HRs) as a passive turbulent boundary layer (TBL) flow control method. Using acoustic pressure-velocity coupling at the orifice of the HR, it is aimed to attenuate the kinetic energy of the grazing turbulence to reduce the mean skin friction. The HRs are tuned towards...

Two different plasma actuation strategies for producing near-wall flow oscillations, namely the burst-modulation and beat-frequency mode, are characterized with planar particle image velocimetry in quiescent air. Both concepts are anticipated to work as non-mechanical surrogates of oscillating walls aimed at turbulent flow drag reduction,...

More than 96% of steel in the world is produced via the method of continuous casting. The flow condition in the mould, where the initial solidification occurs, has a significant impact on the quality of steel products. It is important to have timely, and perhaps automated, control of the flow during casting. This work presents a new concept...

Hybrid laminar flow control (HLFC) can be a possible solution for future sustainable energy-efficient aviation. The current study proposes a MATLAB-based numerical tool for the design of the suction system for an airfoil optimized for a subsonic short-range HLFC application. Considerable energy losses may occur when the air passes through the...

Worldwide 70-90% of hospitalised patients receive intravenous infusion at some stage during their stay. In many situations, a high degree of infusion accuracy is essential as deviation from the intended dose can quickly become dangerous and moreover costly. Electronic infusion pumps provide the most accurate way of infusion, but they require...

Turbulent drag is the largest source of fuel consumption in aviation and forms a significant contribution to climate warming. Recent numerical studies have suggested the ability of surfaces with streamwise-preferential permeability to reduce turbulent friction, and a theoretical framework behind the working mechanism has been proposed. This work...
