In evaporators, the distribution of the liquid and vapor phases among the channels is a convoluted problem, depending on a wide range of parameters. However, maldistribution causes important losses of performance. Due to their complexity, the accurate modeling of such two-phase flows is difficult to handle. Hence, experimental studies are...

Deep-sea mining activities have lately attracted growing interest. Recent research has led to the development of a hydraulic–mechanical hybrid vertical lifting system for deep-sea mining. Predicting the resistance of vertical plug flow in this system is critical for its engineering design. In this paper, an analytical model was developed to...

This thesis focuses on simulating the refuelling process for a liquid hydrogen-powered commercial aircraft. The liquid hydrogen is intended to flow from the refuelling truck, through a transfer line, into the aircraft’s tank using pressure feed. The numerical simulation was built upon an existing tank model, however it did not consider the...

Over the last decades, many diffuse-interface Navier-Stokes Cahn-Hilliard (NSCH) models with non-matching densities have appeared in the literature. These models claim to describe the same physical phenomena, yet they are distinct from one another. The overarching objective of this work is to bring all of these models together by laying down...

The numerical prediction of two-phase flows with an interface is challenging, to a considerable extent because of the high density ratio at the interface. Numerical results become affected by momentum losses, diverging spurious interface velocities, free surface distortion, and even numerical instability. To prevent issues like these,...

Two decades of research on droplet formation in microchannels have led to the widely accepted view that droplets form through the squeezing mechanism when interfacial forces dominate over viscous forces. The initially surprising finding that the volume of the droplets is insensitive to the relative importance of these two forces is nowadays...

Geological Disposal Facilities (GDF) for radioactive waste will generally rely on clay-rich materials as a host geological formation and/or engineered barrier. Gas will be produced within the GDF, which can build up significant gas pressure and will activate the migration of gas through the clay materials via different transport mechanisms....

Modeling of fluid flow in porous media is a pillar in geoscience applications. Previous studies have revealed that heterogeneity and fracture distribution have considerable influence on fluid flow. In this work, a numerical investigation of two-phase flow in heterogeneous fractured reservoir is presented. First, the discrete fracture model is...

This work investigates numerical method and equivalent continuum approach (ECA) of fluid flow in fractured porous media. The commonly used discrete fracture model (DFM) without upscaling needs full discretization of all fractures. It enjoys the merit of capturing each fracture accurately but will get in trouble with mesh partition and low...

Self-aerated free-surface flow studies have a more recent history compared to classical fluid dynamics. Traditional velocimetry techniques are adversely affected by the presence of gas–liquid interfaces. In the present study, detailed air-water flow measurements were performed in a highly turbulent free-surface flow, and three velocimetry...

Fracture networks are abundant in subsurface applications (e.g., geothermal energy production, CO<sub>2</sub> sequestration). Fractured reservoirs often have a very complex structure, making modeling flow and transport in such networks slow and unstable. Consequently, this limits our ability to perform uncertainty quantification and increases...

Two well-established classes of the interface capturing models are the level-set and phase-field models. Level-set formulations satisfy the maximum principle for the density but are not energy-stable. On the other hand, phase-field models do satisfy the second law of thermodynamics but lack the maximum principle for the density. In this paper...

Ventilation events are the result of masses of air being transported from the water surface along the hull, through the propeller plane. Previous research in literature has shown that ventilation induces large and sudden variations of the load on the propeller. The response of the propulsion system had not been documented before. This is a...

In this article, a microchannel thermal management system (MTMS) with the two-phase flow using the refrigerant R1234yf with low global warming potential is presented. The thermal test vehicles (TTVs) were made of either single or multiple thermal test chips embedded in the substrates, which were then attached to the MTMS. The system included...

Phase separation based centrifugal forces is effective, and thus widely explored by the process industry. In an inline swirl separator, a core of the light phase is formed in the center of the device and captured further downstream. Given the inlet conditions, this gas core created varies in shape and size. To predict the separation behavior...

In this work, we consider a Cahn–Hilliard phase field-based computational model for immiscible and incompressible two-component liquid flows with interfacial phenomena. This diffuse-interface complex-fluid model is given by the incompressible Navier–Stokes–Cahn–Hilliard (NSCH) equations. The coupling of the flow and phase field equations is...

Shifting from coal and oil towards sustainable energy sources is currently an urgent and global challenge. Compared to coal and oil, natural gas is a cleaner fossil fuel and may serve as a transition fuel. To meet future demands for gas there is a desire to optimize the production from existing reservoirs with their production facilities. In...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the surface and deep layers to generate electricity. The temperatures in the ocean hardly vary between day and night or between the seasons, which ensures a very constant energy production with OTEC. In order for OTEC to compete with the current forms of energy...

In solving two-phase flows, the location of the interface between the phases is necessary to handle interface jump conditions when solving the Navier-Stokes equation. Current interface capturing and advection methods, however, suffer from various issues. The level set method uses the signed distance to the interface and the interface being the...

This study aimed to characterise the gas-liquid flow and mixing behaviour in a gas-mixed anaerobic digester by improving phase interaction modelling using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A 2D axisymmetric model validated with experimental data was set up using an Eulerian-Eulerian method. Uncertainty factors, including bubble size, phase...
