The column collapse experiment is a simplified version of natural and industrial granular flows. In this set-up, a column built with grains collapses and spreads over a horizontal plane. Granular flows are often studied with a monodisperse distribution; however, this is not the case in natural granular flows where a variety of grain sizes, known...

In many geological systems, the porosity of rock or soil may evolve during mineral precipitation, a process that controls fluid transport properties. Here, we investigate the use of 4D neutron imaging to image flow and transport in Bentheim sandstone core samples before and after in-situ calcium carbonate precipitation. First, we demonstrate...

Silicon based power semiconductors have long been used as the standard in ‘semiconductor technology in power conversion applications’. Recent developments replaces the Silicon with Silicon Carbide as it results in superior performance of the power conversion applications. However, due to the increased performance, challenges...

Isentropic processes in thermodynamics are fundamental to our understanding of numerous physical phenomena across different scientific and engineering fields. They provide a theoretical reference case for the evaluation of real thermodynamic processes and observations. Yet, as analytical relations for isentropic transformations in gas dynamics...

Cross-linked polymer gel is widely used in the oil and gas industry to block high permeability conduits and reduce water cut. The complex nature of this fluid, especially regarding flow in porous media, makes its numerical simulation very time-consuming. This study presents an approach to designing an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model...

Modeling of fluid flows in density-based topology optimization forms a longstanding challenge. Methods based on the Navier–Stokes equations with Darcy penalization (NSDP equations) are widely used in fluid topology optimization. These methods use porous materials with low permeability to represent the solid domain. Consequently, they suffer...

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...

Solid-liquid phase transformation of a phase change material in a rectangular enclosure with corrugated fins is studied. Employing a physics-based model, the influence of fin length, thickness, and wave amplitude on the thermal and fluid flow fields is explored. Incorporating fins into thermal energy storage systems enhances the heat transfer...

Laser butt welding of thin metal sheets is a widely used fusion-based joining technique in industrial manufacturing. A comprehensive understanding of the complex transport phenomena during the welding process is essential for achieving high-quality welds. In the present work, high-fidelity numerical simulations are employed to investigate the...

Reliable prediction of the erosion rate of sediment beds is important for many applications in coastal and river engineering. Theoretical understanding of empirically derived scaling relations is still lacking. This applies in particular for the scaling anomaly between low and high Shields number conditions. In this work, the erosion process is...

Developing numerical method of fractured porous media is of paramount importance in geoscience applications. Previous studies have revealed that the discrete fractures and cavities as well as the heterogeneity have considerable influences on hydraulic property of porous media. This work presents a numerical investigation on fluid flow in...

A combination of time-resolved tomographic particle image velocimetry, refractive index matching technique and machine vision algorithms was used to measure the translational and rotational motion of freely moving, nearly neutrally buoyant spheres in a fully developed turbulent boundary layer (TBL). Located in the buffer and logarithmic...

We formulate the optimal flow problem in a multi-area integrated electrical and gas system as a mixed-integer optimization problem by approximating the non-linear gas flows with piece-wise affine functions, thus resulting in a set of mixed-integer linear constraints. For its solution, we propose a novel algorithm that consists in one stage for...

Fractured and karstified carbonate units are key exploration targets for the hydrocarbon industry as they represent important reservoirs. Furthermore, large water reserves and geothermal systems are hosted in carbonate aquifers. This paper documents the relationships between stratigraphy, structural patterns, silicification, and the spatial...

We revisit the laminar–turbulent transition of a fine-grained slurry in a large pipe. The combination of long measurement times in an industrial-scale facility and ultrasound imaging allows us to observe and address anomalous trends. Under turbulent conditions, the flow is homogeneous and steady. However, under laminar conditions, two types of...

Power electronic systems are reaching higher efficiencies as their technology advances, which often results in components of smaller size with higher power densities. Cooling these components becomes increasingly challenging as high power densities require cooling with large heat fluxes. Topology optimization (TO) of thermo-fluids can be used to...

The classical theory by Jeffery predicts that, in the absence of Brownian fluctuations, a thin rigid platelet rotates continuously in a shear flow, performing periodic orbits. However, a stable orientation is possible if the surface of the platelet displays a hydrodynamic slip length comparable to or larger than the thickness of the platelet....

Responsibly using the subsurface for geo-energy extraction or storage requires an accurate understanding of the static and dynamic behaviour of the targeted reservoirs. While mostly dependent on intrinsic rock properties (e.g. porosity and permeability), this behaviour is also believed to be significantly impacted by the presence of natural...

Welding is an extensively used technology by different industries such as aerospace, automotive and marine industry. Welding involves the temporal melting of materials in order to join them together. The quality of the weld is known to depend on the fluid flow and heat transfer in the material. A way to influence the heat transfer and fluid flow...

We extend upon the known flow transitions in neutrally buoyant particle-laden Taylor-Couette flows by accessing higher suspension Reynolds numbers in a geometry with radius ratio and aspect ratio. Flow transitions for several particle volume fractions () are investigated by means of flow visualization experiments, in a flow driven by a...
