This paper describes the development and application of inflow and outflow boundary conditions (BCs) for the material point method (MPM) in order to simulate fluid flow problems. This corresponds to velocity and pressure controlled BCs. Due to the coupled Lagrangian and Eulerian description of the fluid motion in MPM it is necessary to add and...

The present work consists of an investigation of the turbulence radiation interaction (TRI) in a radiative turbulent channel flow of grey gas bounded by isothermal hot and cold walls. The optical thickness of the channel is varied from 0.1 to 10 to observe different regimes of TRI. A high-resolution finite volume method for radiative heat...

In this study, a flat-plate channel configured with pyramidal protrusions are numerically analysed for the first time. Simulations of laminar single-phase fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics are developed using a finite-volume approach under steady-state condition. Pure water is selected as the coolant and its thermo-physical...

For channel flow, we explore how commonly found weak eddies can still auto-generate and produce new eddies. Before, only strong eddies (above a threshold strength) were considered to auto-generate. Such strong eddies are rarely observed in actual turbulent flows however. Here, the evolution of two weak conditional eddies with different initial...

In this idealized numerical modeling study, the composition of residual sediment fluxes in energetic (e.g., weakly or periodically stratified) tidal estuaries is investigated by means of one-dimensional water column models, with some focus on the sediment availability. Scaling of the underlying dynamic equations shows dependence of the results...

Fresh water supply and flood protection are two central issues in water management. Society needs more and more fresh water and a safe water system to guarantee a better life. A more severe climate will result in more droughts and extreme storms. As a consequence, salt water intrusion will increase. Therefore, clean and fresh water is becoming...

Kenjeres, S. (author)
Numerical simulations and analysis of flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting fluid past magnetic obstacles are reported. We studied the channel flow configuration with electrically and thermally insulated horizontal walls containing a single or multiple (two or three) magnetic dipoles. Different values of the interactive parameter...

This letter reports on the pronounced turbulence modulations and the accompanying drag reduction observed in a two-way coupled simulation of particle-laden channel flow. The present results support the view that drag reduction can be achieved not only by means of polymeric or fiber additives but also with spherical particles.

Large-eddy simulation (LES) is performed of a curved open-channel flow over topography based on the laboratory experiment by Blanckaert [“Topographic steering, flow circulation, velocity redistribution and bed topography in sharp meander bends,” Water Resour. Res., doi:10.1029/2009WR008303 (in press)] . In the experiment, the large-scale bed...

Polymer-induced drag reduction is the phenomenon by which the friction factor of a turbulent flow is reduced by the addition of small amounts of high-molecular-weight linear polymers, which conformation in solution at rest can vary between randomly coiled and rodlike. It is well known that drag reduction is positively correlated to viscous...

The dynamical behavior of tiny elongated particles in a directly simulated turbulent flow field is investigated. The ellipsoidal particles are affected both by inertia and hydrodynamic forces and torques. The time evolution of the particle orientation and translational and rotational motions in a statistically steady channel flow is obtained for...

This paper focuses on experiments and simulations conducted in very sharp open-channel bends with flat and equilibrium bathymetry, corresponding to the initial and final phases of the erosion and deposition processes, respectively. The study of flow in curved open bends is relevant for flow in natural river configurations, as most river reaches...

Turbulent fiber suspension channel flow is studied using direct numerical simulation. The effect of the fibers on the fluid mechanics is governed by a stress tensor, involving the distribution of fiber position and orientation. Properties of this function in channel flow are studied by computing the trajectories and orientations of individual...

The translational and rotational motions of small spherical particles dilutely suspended in a turbulent channel flow have been investigated. Three different particle classes were studied in an Eulerian-Lagrangian framework to examine the effect of the response times on the particle statistics. The results for the fluctuating particle velocities...

This paper examines the role of continuity of the basis in the computation of turbulent flows. We compare standard finite elements and non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) discretizations that are employed in Isogeometric Analysis (Hughes et al. in Comput Methods Appl Mech Eng, 194:4135–4195, 2005). We make use of quadratic discretizations...

Fiber-induced drag reduction can be studied in great detail by means of direct numerical simulation [ J. S. Paschkewitz et al., J. Fluid Mech. 518, 281 (2004) ]. To account for the effect of the fibers, the Navier-Stokes equations are supplemented by the fiber stress tensor, which depends on the distribution function of fiber orientation angles....

We propose to discretize the convective and diffusive operators in the (incom- pressible) Navier-Stokes equations in such a manner that their symmetries are preserved. The resulting spatial discretization inherits all symmetry-related conservation and stability properties from the continuous formulation. In particularly, a symmetry-preserving...

In large eddy simulations (LES) using low-order finite-difference-type methods, the numerical error can be large in comparison to the effect of the sub-grid scale (SGS) model. In this paper, we study two approaches to explicit filtering which can reduce the numerical error involved. In the first approach, the non-linear convection term of the...

We perform a grid convergence study for a recently proposed immersed boundary method for DNS of particulate flows with interface resolution [Uhlmann, J. Comput. Phys., 209(2):448-476, 2005]. Two cases of vertical plane Poiseuille flow with suspended heavy particles (with terminal particle Reynolds number >100) are considered, in the laminar and...

In spite of its importance, little is known about the turbulence characteristics in open-channel bends. This paper reports on an experimental investigation of turbulence in one cross section of an open-channel bend. Typical flow features are a bicellular pattern of cross-stream circulation (secondary flow) and a turbulence activity in the outer...
