Zhang, Y. (author), Palha da Silva Clérigo, A. (author), Gerritsma, M.I. (author), Rebholz, Leo G. (author)We introduce a mimetic dualfield discretization which conserves mass, kinetic energy and helicity for threedimensional incompressible NavierStokes equations. The discretization makes use of a conservative dualfield mixed weak formulation where two evolution equations of velocity are employed and dual representations of the solution are...journal article 2022

Wei, D. (author), Ghoddoosi Dehnavi, P. (author), AubinTam, M.E. (author), Tam, D.S.W. (author)The swift deformations of flagella and cilia are crucial for locomotion and fluid transport on the micron scale. Most hydrodynamic models of flagellar and ciliary flows assume the zero Reynolds number limit and model the flow using Stokes equations. Recent work has demonstrated that this quasisteady approximation breaks down at increasing...journal article 2021

He, Xin (author), Vuik, Cornelis (author)This paper introduces three new Schur complement approximations for the augmented Lagrangian preconditioner. The incompressible NavierStokes equations discretized by a stabilized finite element method are utilized to evaluate these new approximations of the Schur complement. A wide range of numerical experiments in the laminar context...journal article 2020

Goyens, J. (author), Pourquie, M.J.B.M. (author), Poelma, C. (author), Westerweel, J. (author)The vestibular system in the inner ear senses angular head manoeuvres by endolymph fluid which deforms a gelatinous sensory structure (the cupula). We constructed computer models that include both the endolymph flow (using CFD modelling), the cupula deformation (using FEM modelling), and the interaction between both (using fluid–structure...journal article 2019

Maljaars, J.M. (author), Labeur, R.J. (author), Möller, M. (author)A generic particle–mesh method using a hybridized discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) framework is presented and validated for the solution of the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations. Building upon particleincell concepts, the method is formulated in terms of an operator splitting technique in which Lagrangian particles are used to discretize...journal article 2018

He, X. (author), Vuik, Cornelis (author), Klaij, Christiaan M. (author)The augmented Lagrangian (AL) preconditioner and its variant have been successfully applied to solve saddle point systems arising from the incompressible NavierStokes equations discretized by the finite element method. Attractive features are the purely algebraic construction and robustness with respect to the Reynolds number and mesh renement....journal article 2018

Blom, D.S. (author), Birken, Philipp (author), Bijl, H. (author), Kessels, F.J.M. (author), Meister, Andreas (author), van Zuijlen, A.H. (author)In this article, we endeavour to find a fast solver for finite volume discretizations for compressible unsteady viscous flows. Thereby, we concentrate on comparing the efficiency of important classes of time integration schemes, namely time adaptive Rosenbrock, singly diagonally implicit (SDIRK) and explicit first stage singly diagonally...journal article 2016

Cedillo Galarza, J.S. (author)In order to propose a new sewer inspection method, a velocity/turbidity profiler (Ubertone, UB Flow F315) has been tested in a laboratory. A 50 m glass flume has been adapted with several lateral connections (with a range of diameters, angles, intrusions, cracks), supplied by a 1 m3 tank. Placed just below the free surface on a rotating (to...master thesis 2016

He, X. (author), Vuik, C. (author)In this report we explore the performance of the SIMPLER , augmented Lagrangian, ’graddiv’ preconditioners and their variants for the twobytwo block systems arising in the incompressible NavierStokes equations. The liddriven cavity and flow over a finite flat plate are chosen as the benchmark problems. For each problem Reynolds number...report 2013

Bulelzai, M.A.K. (author)Atherosclerosis is a disease in which low density lipoproteins (LDL) accumulate in the arterial wall due to an inflammatory response, which is triggered by the oxidation of LDL molecules that are already present in the arterial wall. Progression of atherosclerotic plaques involves many components which includes, macrophages, monocytes, LDL,...doctoral thesis 2013

He, X. (author), Neytcheva, M. (author), Vuik, C. (author)This paper deals with fast and reliable numerical solution methods for the incompressible nonNewtonian NavierStokes equations. To handle the nonlinearity of the governing equations, the Picard and Newton methods are used to linearize these coupled partial differential equations. For space discretization we use the finite element method and...report 2013

De Reus, M. (author)It is wellknown that charged particles feel a Lorentz force when an electromagnetic field is applied. When the field is applied not to a single particle but a piece of material this force leads to polarization. In a solid this will lead to local displacements and internal stresses, but not actual movement will occur. In this thesis we will...master thesis 2013
