This thesis investigates the aerodynamics of two finite wall-mounted cylinders in tandem, focusing on drag reduction as a function of governing parameters.<br/>For the experimental wind tunnel campaign, two measurement techniques were employed: balance measurements and stereoscopic particle image velocimetry. While balance measurements exhibited...

Today's electricity supply falls short of current demands, leading to the utilization of gas turbines in both ground based and avionic infrastructures. Nevertheless, these often rely on carbon-based fuels, resulting in escalating CO2 emissions. However, adopting hydrogen as a fuel eliminates carbon emissions. Aside from zero carbon emissions,...

The present study focuses on the application of finlet rails as a passive technique of flow control to mitigate trailing-edge noise. Finlet rails are small cylinders whose axes are aligned along the streamwise direction, transversally positioned with respect to the trailing edge. In the first part of this study, the effects of finlet geometry...

Unsteady inlet flow distortion can influence the stability and performance of any propulsion system, in particular for more novel, short and slim intakes of future aero-engine configurations. As such, the requirement for measurement methods able to provide high spatial resolution data is important to aid the understanding of these flow fields...

Offshore wind farms suffer substantial energy losses due to the interference of wind turbine wakes, with estimates indicating losses of approximately 10%. This thesis aims to advance the state of the art of wind farm flow control techniques for maximizing wind farm power performance. Wind farm flow control can be divided into three categories:...

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...

Groynes in the Lower Elbe estuary in Germany are subject to attack from overflowing long-period primary ship-induced waves. Damage can occur on the crest and lee side of the structure due to the high turbulent overflowing flow velocities. An actual design tool for groynes exposed to overflowing primary ship waves is not yet present. Therefore,...

In this research project, multiphase behaviour in zero gap alkaline water electrolyzers is investigated, focusing on the influence of various parameters including current density, electrode-wall distance and electrode height. This involves a cell containing a vertical electrode pair separated by a membrane submerged in an electrolyte that has a...

A F1 car is always in a dynamic flow when racing. The most common case would be acceleration, deceleration and turning a corner. Due to the new rule by FIA since 2021, ground effect is much more significant for F1 car. Limited by the experimental set-up of F1 teams, flow under the car and accelerating flow are hard to be measured quantitatively....

In cycling, the presence of drag reduction from drafting, when multiple cyclists ride in tandem, is a considerable area of performance enhancement for a cycling team and the customisation of this tandem group has the potential of maximising the drag reduction for the entire group or a specific cyclist. The flow interactions between two tandem...

An experimental investigation is presented in which an array of pulsed jet actuators is used to control a turbulent separation bubble formed on a curved backward facing ramp. The array is positioned upstream of detachment and consists of wall-normal high aspect ratio skewed rectangular jets which generate streamwise vortices in the boundary...

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...

The development of offshore wind energy, especially the steps towards deep water and/or higher density wind farms, revives the prospects of vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs). Because VAWTs may reduce the cost of floating structures, there is a potential to lower energy costs. However, VAWTs are often assumed to be less efficient and less...

Wake losses are a critical consideration in wind farm design. The ability to steer and deform wakes can result in increased wind farm power density and reduced energy costs and can be used to optimize wind farm designs. This study investigates the wake deflection of a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) experimentally, emphasizing the effect of...

The aerodynamic characteristics of a modern road cycling wheel in cross wind are studied through force- and planar PIV measurements in the TU Delft Open Jet Facility. The performance of the 62 mm deep rim is evaluated for three tire profiles, and yaw angles up to 24°. All measurements are executed at 12.5 m/s (45 km/h) freestream- and wheel...

Wakes and wake interactions in wind turbine arrays diminish energy output and raise the risk of structural fatigue; hence, comprehending the features of rotor–wake interactions is of practical relevance. Previous studies suggest that vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) can facilitate a quicker wake recovery. This study experimentally...

The fundamental research of cavitation has been a hot topic for decades, while a particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurement on single bubble dynamics is uncommon due to many technical hassles. The involved flow field is small in space and highly unsteady in time, so it challenging the spatial and temporal resolution that current PIV techniques...

Unmanned aerial vehicles have proliferated in the last few decades, with applications that include military, commercial and recreational. Their size and typical flight velocities are characterized by moderate Reynolds numbers <i>O</i>(10^4-10^5). For such conditions, boundary layers can remain laminar and therefore are highly susceptible to...
