Large-scale liquid rocket engines require high-speed turbopumps to inject cryogenic propellants into the combustion chamber. Modeling the impact of secondary path and leakage flows on the performance and axial thrust of the pump is critical during the early design phase. Previous studies derived simplified models and empirical correlations to...

This thesis presents a new methodology for representing the effect of spiral flow on the bed shear stress magnitude and direction, using a low-vertical-resolution three-dimensional model. Furthermore, it discusses the performance of the new methodology in comparison with conventional high-vertical-resolution three-dimensional and depth-averaged...

The threat of global warming made the increase of efficiency a crucial objective for future power plants and aero engines. As secondary flow is a major source of aerodynamic losses in turbines, its mitigation is critical to enable efficient designs. However, the suppression of secondary flow formation is challenging due to the complexity of the...

The fairway connecting Holwerd and Nes forms the main transport route between Friesland and Ameland (the Dutch Wadden Sea). It consists of several tidal channels that funnel the majority of the tidal currents propagating through the tidal basin. Over the past decades, several channel bends have expanded leading to a fairway length-increase of...

Depth-averaged morphological computations using Delft3D tend to produce ‘strange’, results for river bends when the sediment transport formulas of Van Rijn are used. Even pools in inner bend regions and bars in outer bend regions can result from the model. The objective of the present thesis is to identify the cause of the problem and propose...

The flow in a river bend has a large influence on the cross-sectional profile of the bend. Due to the curvature of the bend a secondary flow, which is perpendicular to the main flow, occurs. The secondary flow is directed outwards in the upper part of the cross-section and inwards in the lower part of the cross-section. It causes by means of the...
