An accurate estimation of gas turbine nozzle guide vane metal temperature locally on its surface is crucial for predicting vane lifetime. The stagnation region at the vane leading edge is, typically, exposed to the highest thermal load, thus, the showerhead configuration of film cooling is often applied on the leading edge. Widely used lean-...

To reduce emissions from civil aviation, research is being conducted in lean premixed hydrogen combustors as part of the APPU project at the TU Delft. Next to mitigating CO2 emissions completely, these technologies have the potential to also reduce NOx emissions greatly, allowing for the future of civil aviation to become sustainable. However,...

The performance of multiphase flow processes is often determined by the distribution of phases inside the equipment. However, controllers in the field are typically implemented based on flow variables, which are simpler to measure, but indirectly connected to performance (e.g., pressure). Tomography has been used in the study of the...

Experiments to characterise vortices in hyperbolic shaped funnels are being conducted at the Water Application Centre (WAC) in Wetsus. These have demonstrated their higher gas transfer rates in comparison to the conventional aeration systems presently in use. Depending on the imposed flow conditions, different regimes of...

Swirl-stabilised hydrogen combustion has great potential in the aviation industry since emissions can be significantly reduced compared to fossil fuels. However, a major drawback is a high proneness to flashback. This could be overcome with non-swirling axial air injection (AAI) on the centre-line of the mixing tube. The effect of this concept...

In this work we examine the behavior of non-ideal compressible swirling flows. Based on a first-principle analysis, we derive a generalized expression of the corrected flow per unit area as function of the isentropic exponent, characteristic Mach numbers, and swirl parameter. The calculated trends of the corrected flow with respect to these...

For many decades, conventional gravitational separators have been the backbone of the fluid separation in the oil and gas industry. The stricter environment regulation for purification of the recycled water, together with a tighter profitable margin of the produced oil, requires more efficient and faster separators. Inline swirl separator uses...

Tip vortex cavitation was previously identified as a source of the broadband noise emitted by ships underwater. This leads to unwanted noise and vibrations on board, which reduces passenger comfort, and increases the underwater signature of naval ships. The influence of different cavitation regimes on propellers and boundary layer transition on...

Separation of oil and water is an essential step in the treatment of the production streams from fossil oil wells. Settling by gravity is a robust though voluminous process and therewith expensive method at remote locations, leading to a need for smaller separation equipment. In this thesis, we describe the research performed on the development...
