Inspired by the leading-edge protuberances found on the flippers of humpback whales, tubercles have drawn significant interest for improving airfoil aerodynamic performance. In static conditions, airfoils with tubercles exhibit a softer onset of stall and increased lift in post-stall regime, though with a reduced maximum lift coefficient....

In response to the urgent need for renewable energy amidst the escalating impacts of global warming, this study delves into the forefront of wind energy research, particularly focusing on the innovative Multi-Rotor System (MRS). The MRS concept offers a promising departure from the prevailing trend of scaling up traditional turbines, instead...

Cycling as a mode of transport is getting increasingly more attention from academics and governments around the world. It improves the physical and mental well being of citizens, it is efficient in terms of space and it provides economic benefits. However, traffic engineers and urban planners of these cities currently lack the means to...

Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV) is an effective and non-intrusive flow measurement technique that is able to provide quantitative information of the full velocity field at a certain instant in time, by tracking each particle individually with high-speed cameras. This permits to have a very high precision in measuring the flow evolutions. The...

The need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is emergent throughout every industrial sector worldwide. For aviation, this has opened a market gap for small scale electric aircraft configurations (e-V/STOL). These configurations are very diverse and they are classified based on how lift is obtained. However, their flight...

A study is conducted on the effects of tip-mounted rotors on a conventional Darrieus H-VAWT; this study is complementary to the X-rotor concept proposal. This proposal features a novel offshore wind turbine concept that utilises blade-mounted tip rotors to extract energy from the flow. Following a literature study phase, an experimental campaign...

van Nieuwenhuizen, Christian (author)
The added drag on a buoyant body traveling in a solid-body rotation flow has been rigorously studied over the last century with G.I. Taylor being the first one to describe it in 1922, a hundred years ago. A recent publication by Duinmeijer (2021) investigated the capacity of free-surface vortices to transport solids as a practical application to...

Salt water intrusion through the New Sea Lock of IJmuiden, Netherlands requires mitigation to ensure availability of enough fresh water further inland. For this purpose, a salt screen has been proposed for selective withdrawal of salt water from the Noordzeekanaal in the vicinity of the lock complex. Formulas to assess the withdrawal rate of...

This study describes a novel measurement approach for combined flow and structural measurements in wind tunnels using robotic volumetric particle tracking velocimetry (PTV). The measurement approach is based on the application of a particle tracking algorithm on images including flow or structure tracers, where the latter are implemented by...

Covid-19 has proven how uncertain the future can be. However, traffic models fail to fully acknowledge this uncertainty. Therefore, decisions made based on these models are not very robust. In this research, Robust Decision Making (RDM) method is applied on a macro-level traffic model made for the municipality of Groningen. This method,...

To achieve delay of laminar-to-turbulent transition of boundary layers, the application of acoustic metamaterial concepts is investigated. This is done analytically, numerically and experimentally by studying the interaction between a Helmholtz resonator and a TS wave. A Helmholtz resonator can serve as a meta-atom in a metamaterial. The desired...

Experiments are conducted in a Ø600 mm tank to analyse the 3D motion of buoyant particles in the free-surface vortex flow. The experiments revealed two stages in the particle motion: stage 1 is the helical motion along the vortex air core and stage 2 is the axial motion inside the vortex core. The stage 1 motion is sensitive to the particle’s...

An experimental approach for the measurement of the time-average fluid flow pressure over the surface of generic three-dimensional objects is presented. The method is based on robotic volumetric PTV measurements followed by the integration of the pressure gradient. The domain for pressure evaluation is subdivided in two parts: in the...

Heavy-Duty Vehicles (HDVs) are responsible for a measurable and growing portion of the worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. As aerodynamic drag constitutes the single biggest source of engine power demand for HDVs at highway speeds, aerodynamic improvements are an effective measure to reduce fuel consumption and thus greenhouse gas emissions....

In experimental aerodynamics, pressure is an important parameter which provides insight into the various features of the flow around the test object. By obtaining the surface pressure information, various inferences can be drawn such as flow separation, local flow velocity etc. Traditionally, the most common method of obtaining pressure has been...

The robotic volumetric PIV system of the TU Delft is proposed to be used to gather quantitative data in the wakes of footballs. For over a decade now, a new football is introduced every FIFA World Cup. The varying surface characteristics affect the behaviour of the footballs in flight, and so football aerodynamics has become subject to increased...

Pressure represents a physical magnitude which allows the characterisation of flow behaviour. Its study is<br/>of great interest for engineering purposes and is broadly reported in the literature. The practical implementation of pressure measurements in industrial wind tunnel facilities involves the use of intrusive pressure probes only able to...

Car industry and motorsport development nowadays strongly rely on wind tunnel testing. As the literature survey shows, in order to fully understand the characteristics of the flow around a car, large-scale and volumetric flow field measurements are required. For its features, PIV can be pointed as a useful technique for automotive wind tunnels....

The near wake of the Ahmed reference body in the presence of steady cross-wind is investigated experimentally by means of large-scale three-dimensional Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). A novel experimental technique is employed which exploits coaxial imaging and illumination while relying on Helium Filled Soap Bubble (HFSB) seeding as well as...
