Pocket drones, weighing less than 50 grams, are small, agile and inherently safe. This makes them suitable for several surveillance tasks such as search and rescue, green-house monitoring and pipe-line inspection. In order for a more efficient search, a swarm of pocket drones would be ideal to explore these types of areas faster. Current methods...

The use of the subsurface and the exploitation of subsurface resources require prior knowledge of fluid flow through fracture networks. For nuclear waste disposal, for the enhancement of hydrocarbon recovery from a field, or the development of an enhanced geothermal system (EGS), it is fundamental to constrain the fractures and the fracture...

Vortex generators have become a ubiquitous sight on the modern wind turbine blade. These small, passive devices can increase the energy extraction potential of a rotor, but their subtle footprint disguises the technical difficulties associated with designing and integrating them onto wind turbine blades. The complexity of rotor inflow and the...

The present work analyses broadband noise scattering from permeable trailing edges with identical micro-structure but under a change of temperature. Experiments are performed in an anechoic wind tunnel using a NACA0018 airfoil at chord-based Reynolds numbers between 1.88 × 10<sup>5</sup> and 3.14 × 10<sup>5</sup> and no incidence. A...

This work focuses on creating a recipe for parametrizing flow around assemblies of non-spherical particles. A multi-relaxation time lattice Boltzmann method (MRT-LBM) is used to simulate the flow. The research focuses on 3 different developments. First, different boundary conditions available in the literature for LBM are tested to identify the...

Environmental flows (e-flows) science has significantly advanced in the last decades. In Mexico, a standard for e-flow assessments was recently published as a regulatory instrument to support water planning and management. However, the appropriateness of the technical procedure in a climate change context has not been investigated. Do the e...

Foam has unique microstructure in pore networks and reduces gas mobility significantly, which improves considerably the sweep efficiency of gas injection. Foam injection is thus regarded as a promising enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technology. One key to success of foam EOR is foam stability in presence of oil. This thesis seeks to understand...

Submarine gravity flows constitute the last link in the source-to-sink sediment transport chain. They are the main mechanism for the transportation of sediment from the shallower to the deeper parts of the ocean. Due to their great volume, mobility, and power, they pose a formidable threat to the offshore infrastructures, and can generate...

A large number of stakeholders exist in the modern air traffic management ecosystem. Air transportation studies benefit from collaboration and the sharing of knowledge and findings between these different players. However, not all parties have equal access to information. Due to the lack of open-source tools and models, it is not always possible...

Vortex-induced vibration (VIV) is awell-known phenomenon for civil and offshore structures. Currently, the prediction of this type of vibration in practice currently mainly relies on the force-decomposition method. However, the limitations of this method have restricted the applicability of the method, and alternative models are therefore needed...

Microprocessors are used in an expanding range of applications from small embedded system devices to supercomputers and mainframes. Moreover, embedded microprocessor based systems became essential in modern societies. Depending on the application domain, embedded systems have to satisfy different constraints. The major challenges today are cost,...

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 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...

Lagged settlement is a typical accident induced by shield construction in sandy cobble strata. This paper analyzed the process and mechanism of lagged settlement, results show that all phases are in accord with the characteristics of ellipsoid theory of particle flows. Based on this theory, a method for calculating coefficient of lateral...

Location of wind power plants and demand centres are not always close by; hence, the transmission of energy puts a burden on existing grid infrastructure. This unwanted burden necessitates transmission lines to operate more and more frequently close to their operating limits. To alleviate such situations, this research addresses the advantages...

Adaptation can occur with or without genome-wide differentiation. If adaptive loci are linked to traits involved in reproductive isolation, genome-wide divergence is likely, and speciation is possible. However, adaptation can also lead to phenotypic differentiation without genome-wide divergence if levels of ongoing gene flow are high. Here,...

With automated and cooperative driving making its breakthrough, and related systems in fast development, their future influence and impact on roads and traffic may be extensive. Truck platooning is such an application that relies on the development of Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) and is said to be practice ready. While the main...

Slurry transport is a very important means of transporting solids through a pipeline. To improve the efficiency of slurry transport, especially in coarse particle transport, which is subject to problems such as strong resistance and easy blockage, more of the internal structure of the flow must be known. Empirical and analytical models are...

In recent years, solar redox flow batteries have attracted attention as a possible integrated technology for simultaneous conversion and storage of solar energy. Unlike solar water splitting technologies which require at least 1.8V for meaningful performance, a lesson learned from previous solar redox flow battery (SRFB) studies is that even...
