Flow visualization is an important topic in many scientific domains and has been an active field of research for many years. Many different methods of analysis can be used in order to analyze flow, however recently big progress have been reported on the manifold learning algorithms for high-dimensional data. This thesis investigates the use of...

The paper proposes a novel methodology to locate and quantify entrapped air pockets created during pipe-filling events often found in intermittent water supply systems. Different filling conditions were tested in an experimental pipe with a high point. Measurements were taken and video recordings were carried out to assess air pocket volumes...

A flying aircraft consumes fuel to overcome air resistance during its motion. A significant part of this consumption (55%) is due to turbulent skin friction arising at the interface of the aircraft surface and the air. The current work aims to develop and investigate relevant turbulent skin-friction reduction techniques and assist in advancing...

As the space industry continues to grow rapidly, the development of reusable launch vehicles has become crucial in achieving cost-effective and sustainable access to space. Payload capacity optimisation has been at the forefront of this effort, leading to a renewed interest in hammerhead or bulbous payload fairing (PLF) configurations. These...

A Tomographic Background-Oriented Schlieren (TBOS) technique is developed to aid in the visualization of compressible flows. An experimental setup was devised around a sub-scale rocket nozzle, in which four cameras were set up in a circular configuration with 30° angular spacing in azimuth. Measurements were taken of the overexpanded supersonic...

The thesis presents an analysis of unsteady vortex shedding and vortex induced vibrations (VIV) on wind turbine blades using a combination of Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (SPIV) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A spanwise uniform blade with a symmetric NACA0021 airfoil section, 0.075 m chord, and 0.4 m span was tested...

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is considered nowadays the state-of-the-art for non-intrusive and quantitative 3D velocity measurements. Its ability to measure the velocity field around complex geometries is a valuable tool that engineers can exploit for aerodynamic design optimization in various domains, such as aerospace, wind turbines and...

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is the state of the art for quantitative, full-field, 3D flow diagnostics. Despite the maturity of the technique, two bottlenecks are identified which are addressed in this thesis: the achievable measurement volume size, and the optical access to geometrically complex objects. Both aspects are well illustrated...

During water electrolysis for the production of hydrogen and oxygen, many bubbles are formed at the electrodes. The presence of these bubbles causes a number of side effects such as a significant increase in the total cell resistance (e.g., electrical circuit resistances, transport related resistances, and electrochemical reaction resistances)....

This research has been performed with the purpose of understanding the cause of the unstable pitch break experienced by the Flying V at a lift coefficient of CL = 0.95. Without understanding and possibly elimination of the pitch break, the flying V’s usable maximum lift coefficient is lower and the pitching moment behavior and gust response...

The present work reviews the recent developments in the domain of particle image velocimetry (PIV) with attention to its use for large-scale problems of interest for industrial aerodynamics. The article introduces the fundamental principles of flow seeding for large-scale experiments based on the helium-filled soap bubble (HFSB) technique....

This paper presents the flow fields and aerodynamic loading of a two bladed H-type vertical axis wind turbine with active variable pitch for load and circulation control. Particle Image Velocimetry is used to capture flow fields at six azimuthal positions of the blades during operation, three upwind and three downwind. Flow phenomena such as...

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. The method is based on stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (Stereo-PIV) measurements followed...

Phase-Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (PC-MRI) surpasses all other imaging methods in quality and completeness for measuring time-varying volumetric blood flows and has shown potential to improve both diagnosis and risk assessment of cardiovascular diseases. However, like any measurement of physical phenomena, the data are prone to noise,...

We present an experimental study on the variation in wave impact location and present a mechanism for the development of free surface instabilities on the wave crest for repeatable plunging wave impacts on a vertical wall. The existence of free surface instabilities on an impacting wave is well known, but their characteristics and formation...

Taylor-Couette (TC) flow refers to the flow in the annulus between two coaxial, independently rotating cylinders. The TC system has been subject to multiple experiments spanning over decades due to the instability phenomena that occur in the flow. When the rotation rates of the cylinders are increased beyond a critical value, instabilities...

Passive root flaps and in particular the Gurney flaps have been employed for improving aerodynamic characteristics for various applications since the 1970's. The effects of passive flaps on two dimensional airfoils have therefore been studied extensively, however, research on their application to Horizontal axis wind turbine blades (HAWT) is...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the surface and deep layers to generate electricity. The temperatures in the ocean hardly vary between day and night or between the seasons, which ensures a very constant energy production with OTEC. In order for OTEC to compete with the current forms of energy...

Flow visualizations have been performed on a free flying, flapping-wing micro air vehicle (MAV), using a large-scale particle image velocimetry (PIV) approach. The PIV method involves the use of helium-filled soap bubbles (HFSB) as tracer particles. HFSB scatter light with much higher intensity than regular seeding particles, comparable to that...

This study presents a literature review of work related to the two-phase flow patterns of vertical downward flow in plate heat exchangers with corrugated chevron plates. An understanding of these flow patterns is crucial for developing accurate models of plate heat exchangers functioning as condensers or absorbers. Flow pattern maps of the...
