Conventionally, the geometry of the Fri-Jado open vertical refrigerated display cabinet design is optimized by drawing and producing the new components and testing the new configuration in a climate chamber, which is known to be an iterative process that consumes a large amount of time. To speed up the optimization process, the application of...

Wind loads acting on STS cranes are an important design parameter to be taken into account when designing STS cranes. Current calculation standards such as the EN13001-2 overestimate wind forces. The goal of this research is to propose an improvement on current calculation standards. Wind tunnel tests were performed to assess the results of...

Due to the complicated design of nuclear reactors, many complex phenomena can cause points of failure. In the case of nuclear fuel rods, the axial flow that cools the rods can induce vibrations due to the turbulent nature of the flow. Turbulence-induced pressure fluctuations create small but significant vibration amplitudes, which in turn can...

It is envisioned that the future generations of regional and short to medium-range aircraft employ a high level of propeller integration to achieve low-emission flight. The objectives of unconventional propeller installations include the enhancement of the airframe aerodynamic efficiency, increasing the propeller efficiency, improving cabin...

Aerodynamics has played a significant role in the industry of motorsports in improving the performance and handling of the race car. Rob Smedley, the former head of vehicle performance at Williams Racing stated that - "Where teams have problems is when their development or simulation environment – so CFD [Computational Fluid Dynamics] or wind...

Natural gas compartment accommodated in utility tunnels is beneficial in meeting the pressing demand of energy supply and sustainable urban environment. However, the leaking gas characterized by flammable and explosive can pose a huge threat to the safe operation of the utility tunnel. When an unexpected gas leakage accident happens in the...

A three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model for the HIsarna off-gas system is set up and validated by real plant data. In the model detailed reaction mechanism and kinetic data for post-combustion of CO-H2 mixture and carbon particles are incorporated. The results are presented and discussed in another study (Part 1) by the...

The HIsarna process is a new and breakthrough smelting reduction process for hot metal (liquid iron) production from iron ores and coal directly fed into the reactor. The flue gas from the main reactor enters the off-gas system containing small amounts of H<sub>2</sub>, CO and carbon particles which need to be removed before further treatment...

As technology advances, architects often employ innovative, non-standard shapes in their designs for the fast-growing number of high-rise buildings. Conversely, climate change is bringing about an increasing number of dangerous wind events causing damage to buildings and their surroundings. These factors further complicate the already...

Toxic gas leakage represents a type of major process accident scenario threatening human life. Technical and non-technical safety barriers are employed to prevent toxic gas leakage accidents or mitigate the possible catastrophic consequences. Evacuation must be executed in severe toxic gas release scenarios. The performance assessment of...

Siltation of fine (cohesive) sediment in navigation channels and harbour basins may cause serious problems for the shipping industry. Intensive maintenance dredging is required to ensure safe shipping traffic. Conventional dredging methods are highly expensive, and therefore port authorities seek for more efficient solutions to reduce costs. One...

The global warming and increase in energy use demands the industry to come up with ideas to lower the CO<sub>2</sub> production and save valuable energy. Organic Rankine cycles have a great potential as low grade heat can be converted into electrical energy. In the last ten years, research in this particular field has increased together with the...

This research investigates the possibility of solving one dimensional Poisson's equation on quantum computers using the Variational Quantum Linear Solver (VQLS) as a simplified test case for fluid dynamics applications. In this work, Poisson's equation is discretized with the finite element method and the resulting matrix is decomposed as a...

In drinking water treatment plants, multiphase flows are a frequent phenomenon. Examples of such flows are pellet-softening and filter backwashing where liquid-solid fluidisation is applied. A better grasp of these fluidisation processes is needed to be able to determine optimal hydraulic states. In this research, models were developed, and...

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...

A key challenge in the Airborne Wind Energy industry is the minimisation of the time and energy required for the transfer and return phases inherent to the power cycles of ground-generator-based kite power systems. This thesis contributes to solving this problem by exploring the use of bleed air spoilers during the return phase in terms of their...

During a severe accident in a water­-cooled nuclear power plant, large quantities of hydrogen can be generated in the reactor core. The hydrogen mixed with air presents a potential risk of combustion when the hydrogen concentration reaches flammability limits. If combustion occurs, pressure loads can damage safety systems and even compromise the...

During the last decades, the development of high-rise increased quickly. The Eurocode is frequently used to make wind calculations for high-rise structures. To make those calculations, the dynamic wind load is simplified to a conservative equivalent static load. An alternative to calculate wind loads is a physical wind tunnel test. Wind tunnel...
