Particle-bubble collisions in dissolved air flotation (DAF) systems play a crucial role in the removal of total suspended solids (TSS). DAF particle-bubble collision models incorporate factors such as particle diameters, charge and density, bubble diameters, and collision factors. The challenge lies in accounting for the wide range of...

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...

As the world grapples with the challenges of global warming, there has been a significant push for the development of new methods of harnessing renewable energy. Energy harvesters have been a new avenue to generate electrical power locally for remote applications. An energy harvester is a device that taps into aeroelastic phenomena to convert...

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...

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is the state of the art for quantitative, full-field, 3D flow diagnostics. Despite the maturity of the technique, two bottlenecks are identified which are addressed in this thesis: the achievable measurement volume size, and the optical access to geometrically complex objects. Both aspects are well illustrated...

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...

Turbulent drag is the largest source of fuel consumption in aviation and forms a significant contribution to climate warming. Recent numerical studies have suggested the ability of surfaces with streamwise-preferential permeability to reduce turbulent friction, and a theoretical framework behind the working mechanism has been proposed. This work...

In this thesis, the resistance of a single degree of freedom liner is investigated experimentally. Semi-empirical resistance modelling fails at higher Mach numbers (M<sub>0</sub>&gt;0.3) and sound pressure levels (SPL&gt;130dB), and experimental work is missing in these conditions. An experiment combining in-situ impedance measurements and phase...

Transverse jet injection into supersonic crossflows is encountered with Aerospace applications such as fuel injection in Supersonic Combustion Ramjet (SCRamjet) engines and reaction-jet-based attitude control systems. In particular, for the case of SCRamjets, the short residence times of the fuel in the combustion chamber can be countered by the...

As soon a ship operates at high forward speeds its weight is pre-dominantly supported by hydrodynamic, rather than hydrostatic forces. Small changes in the dynamic pressure distribution on the ship hull can have a significant influence on the ship’s running attitude in calm water, but also on its seakeeping performance. In order to further...

Many laboratory tests of samples where the rock fractures are based on<br/>meso-scale (cm) characterization of effective ‘intact’ strength parameters neglecting the microstructure effects. Understanding fracturing processes at<br/>micro-scale (mm) will require models with microstructure data. However,<br/>data is lacking on micro-scale.<br/...

Wind tunnel measurements are performed to investigate the potential for mitigation of aerodynamic load fluctuations on airfoils, as the main source of fatigue for wind turbines, using plasma actuators. The experiment consists of aerodynamic force measurements using six strain gauges and 2-component velocity measurements using particle image...

The turbulent lifted Dutch natural gas jet diffusion flame in cold co-flowing air is widely used in gas turbine operation and subject of the current investigation. In striving to clean and sustainable combustion, adding hydrogen to the Dutch natural gas (DNG) fuel and CO2 in the coflow is promising. Objective of this investigation is to study...

Passive root flaps and in particular the Gurney flaps have been employed for improving aerodynamic characteristics for various applications since the 1970's. The effects of passive flaps on two dimensional airfoils have therefore been studied extensively, however, research on their application to Horizontal axis wind turbine blades (HAWT) is...

Rowing is a competitive sport where victory is determined by fine margins. In the past, the focus has been on optimizing the shell. Due to the increasing regulations placed on the shell design, the scope for manoeuvring in this area is greatly limited. This increases the necessity to focus on the less explored option of propulsion in rowing. The...

This study treats the calculation of longitudinal forces on a ship in a lock chamber due to the levelling procedure. The focus will be on the force resulting from the filling jet through the levelling door in the lock, with the main point of interest being the interaction between the ship and the flow resulting from the jet. To understand more...

New approach to surface flow visualization based on combination of oil film method with PIV approach is presented. Oil film is seeded with optically contrast particles and two or more images of these contrast particles are acquired at some time interval at desirable flow parameters. Cross-correlation analysis of these images allows to determine...
