This article presents a new turbulence closure based on the k-ω SST model for predicting turbulent flows of Herschel–Bulkley fluids, including Bingham and power-law fluids. The model has been calibrated with direct numerical simulations (DNS) data for fully-developed pipe flow of shear-thinning and viscoplastic fluids. The new model shows...

In this thesis, a ground structure based thermofluid topology optimization (TO) method is presented which is applicable to problems with creeping flow. Fluid channels with creeping flow are found in a variety of engineering applications, primarily in the field of microfluidics. Current fluid channel TO is typically done with density-based TO and...

The human body is the subject of several interesting phenomena and blood flow comes under that category. The main motivator for this thesis is the flow of blood in aneurysms. An aneurysm is a sudden expansion of an artery, with large expansion angles causing an adverse pressure gradient and leading to flow separation. Several studies have shown...

Accurate rheological characterisation of sewage waste activated sludge (WAS) is of high importance for downstream processing related to optimised sludge pumping and mixing, assessment of energy demands and overall process design. However, to elaborate rheological behaviour is often challenging under dynamic operational conditions in practice....

This article concerns the turbulent flow of Herschel–Bulkley slurries through circular horizontal pipes; in particular, that of concentrated domestic slurry obtained upon separation of domestic waste water and reduction in the use of water for domestic purposes. Experiments with a rheologically equivalent clay (kaolin) slurry indicated a non...

We present well-resolved large-eddy simulations of turbulent flow through a straight, high aspect ratio cooling duct operated with water at a bulk Reynolds number of Re<sub>b</sub> = 110 × 10<sup>3</sup> and an average Nusselt number of Nuxz = 371. The geometry and boundary conditions follow an experimental reference case and good agreement...

This article follows from a previous study by the authors on the computational fluid dynamics-based analysis of Herschel-Bulkley fluids in a pipe-bounded turbulent flow. The study aims to propose a numerical method that could support engineering processes involving the design and implementation of a waste water transport system, for...

Turbulence is a commonly encountered state of fluid dynamics. Unsteady turbulent flows in pipes are present in many engineering applications and also in biological flows. However, the various processes active in such flows are not well understood. The present work employs stereo-PIV to investigate the effects of a sinusoidal pressure gradient on...

Accurate measurement of emissions (i.e. volume flow rate multiplied by concentration) is vital to the control and reduction of air pollution. We quantify the uncertainty of flow measurements by S-type pitot tubes in narrow exhaust stacks (diameter &lt; 0.5 m) in support of recent European Union (EU) regulations for emissions from medium-size...

The concentration (using a lesser amount of water) of domestic slurry promotes resource recovery (nutrients and biomass) while saving water. This article is aimed at developing numerical methods to support engineering processes such as the design and implementation of sewerage for concentrated domestic slurry. The current industrial standard...

In this thesis a vortex generator is presented, that can generate controlled ring-vortex injections into a pipe flow. The performance of the generator and the coherence of its structures is tested by applying a dye visualisation method. Furthermore, iso-contour plots of the 3D velocity field, obtained from Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry...

Pipelines with multiphase flow of gas, oil, and water are commonly used in the oil and gas industry. In the presence of offshore platforms or vessels, the pipeline ends with a vertical riser. A possible new concept is to use a single large diameter pipeline along the sea floor that ends into multiple smaller diameter risers. This concept might...

Stratified two phase flow is one of the flow regimes that is of importance in multiphase flow transport through pipelines, such as used for example in the oil and gas industry. Its application also extends to chemical production, energy conversion and food processing. The phenomenon of turbulence further complicates the stratified flow behaviour...

Efforts to identify and visualize near-wall structures typically focus on the region y<sup>+</sup>≳5, where large-scale structures with significant turbulent kinetic energy content reside, such as the high-speed and low-speed streaks associated with sweep and ejection events. While it is true that the level of the turbulent kinetic energy...

An experimental study was performed in stratified wavy flow of air and water through a horizontal pipe. The velocity fields in both phases were measured simultaneously using PIV and the interfacial shape was resolved using a profile capturing technique. The objective of the study was to investigate the interfacial characteristics and the...

The tubing performance relation curve is a measure of well performance in gas well engineering. It describes the two-phase flow inside a well and as such is modeled as a two-phase one dimensional pipe flow. Convention claims that production points on the TPR curve to the right of its minimum are stable. There also exist claims about the region...

Liquid loading is a major problem in the natural gas industry, in which gas production is limited by the accumulation of liquids in the well tubing. Liquid loading can be prevented by the injection of surfactants at the bottom of the well. The surfactants cause the liquid in the well to foam, thereby changing the gas-liquid flow in the well. The...

The growing demand for energy in the future will necessitate the production of natural gas from fields which are located farther offshore, in deep water and in very cold environments. This will confront us with difficulties in ensuring continuous production of the fluids (natural gas, condensate and water) emerging from a natural gas well. Often...

A numerical study has been made of horizontal core-annular flow: the flow of a high-viscosity liquid core surrounded by a low-viscosity liquid annular layer through a horizontal pipe. Special attention is paid to the question how the buoyancy force on the core, caused by a density difference between the core and the annular layer, is...

Air-water flow is an undesired condition in water pipelines and hydropower tunnels. Water pipelines and wastewater pressure mains in particular are subject to air pocket accumulation in downward sloping reaches, such as inverted siphons or terrain slopes. Air pockets cause energy losses and an associated capacity reduction. Despite its practical...
