Enhancing the efficiency of industrial water electrolysis for hydrogen production is vital for the energy transition. In Alkaline Water Electrolysis (AWE), hydrogen is produced at the cathode, and the bubbles are formed when the local hydrogen concentration exceeds the solubility limit. It is important to understand the exact local conditions...

Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems have been successfully employed to reduce the NOx emissions in diesel engines. However, the fouling problem in EGR coolers challenges their capability to comply with stringent environmental regulations. A few numerical simulations have considered the fouling growth in EGR coolers. Those studies modeled...

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...

The traditional Eulerian view of biomass in bioprocess modelling results in issues when modelling large-scale bioreactors in which heterogeneous conditions are common. As the field increasingly moves from “scale-up” to “scale-down” philosophy, in which such heterogeneities are included from the start of process design, accurate modelling of the...

The Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is an appealing framework to apply to unsteady, incompressible, low Reynolds number flow due to its simplicity and potential for massive parallelisation. The immersed boundary method is often used in conjunction with the LBM to simulate flow around curved, moving boundaries in the interior of the fluid domain....

Public annoyances due to noise emission in aviation and wind energy sectors are expected to become more severe in the near future with increasing number of civilian flights and wind turbine installations. Such trend demands for deeper investigations into the noise generation mechanisms and the means to mitigate them. This dissertation addresses...

This paper presents a computational study of flow incidence effects on the aeroacoustics of a propeller operating at low blade-tip Mach numbers. The numerical flow solution is obtained by using the Lattice-Boltzmann/Very Large Eddy Simulation method, while far-field noise is computed through the Ffowcs-Williams & Hawkings' acoustic...

The understanding of the rheological behaviour of suspensions in aqueous electrolytes is necessary for the optimal design of hydraulic transport lines. In these applications, particle size is at least 10 micron, and the particle Reynolds number, Re<sub>p</sub>, is finite: O(10<sup>−1</sup>). Although there are some experimental and numerical...

Detailed simulations of flow around various prolate spheroids are performed using multi-relaxation time lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The simulations are performed in the Reynolds numbers range 0.1≤Re≤2000 at different incident angles 0<sup>∘</sup>≤ϕ≤90<sup>∘</sup> for various prolate spheroids of aspect ratios 1≤λ≤8. The Re is based on the...

We developed a dedicated computational framework by coupling the lattice-Boltzmann-method (LBM) modeling and the particle-swarm-optimization (PSO) algorithm to search optimal strategies of magnetic nanoparticle (MNP) injection for hyperthermia-based cancer treatment. Two simplified tumor models were considered: a circular model representing...

In this work, a numerical model is proposed to study chloride transport in alkali-activated materials. This model is based on multiple-relaxation-time lattice Boltzmann method, where particle distribution function is introduced to simulate the chloride binding and diffusion. This model takes into account diffusion, homogenous reaction between...

Using an immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method, we investigated the response of dense granular suspensions to time-varying shear rates and flow reversals. The evolution of the relative apparent viscosity and particle structures was analysed. The concentration of solids (ϕ<sub>v</sub>) and particle Reynolds numbers (Re<sub>p</sub>) were...

This paper proposes a CFD/CAA-based approach to predict the aerodynamic performances and tonal/broadband noise radiation of low-Reynolds number propellers at engineering level. Broadband self-noise prediction of low-Reynolds number propellers is particularly challenging, due to the requirement for the employed computational method to emulate...

Portland cement is the most produced material in the world. The hydration process of cement consists of a group of complex chemical reactions. In order to investigate the mechanism of cement hydration, it is vital to study the hydration of each phase separately. An integrated model is proposed in this paper to simulate the dissolution of...

Over the past decades, numerous methods have been used to study acoustic liners through their impedance, of which numerical methods are of particular interest. Despite their advantages, numerical methods are bounded by certain drawbacks. One such drawback stems from the need to accurately discretize the liner geometry, which can lead to large...

Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWTs) are a very popular source of renewable energy, but these machines are often subject to off-design conditions owing to the unsteady nature of wind. Unsteady aerodynamic conditions have been associated with cyclic loading of turbine blades, which can have hugely detrimental effects on their operational life....

Three-dimensional direct numerical simulations of dense suspensions of monodisperse spherical particles in simple shear flow have been performed at particle Reynolds numbers between 0.1 and 0.6. The particles translate and rotate under the influence of the applied shear. The lattice Boltzmann method was used to solve the flow of the...

Aim of this paper is to investigate the effects of the turbulent flow developing over a fuselage on fan noise for BLI embedded propulsion systems. Such configurations can suffer from inlet flow distortions and ingestion of turbulence at the fan plane with consequent impact on both broadband and tonal fan noise. The analysis is performed on a...

Alkali-activated materials (AAMs) show promising potentials for use as building materials. Before the utilization, AAMs must satisfy the properties required from the construction sector, such as good durability and long-term service life. These properties mainly depend on the chemical and physical properties of the microstructure of AAMs. In the...
