The interaction of a turbulent flow with the leading edge of a foil is one of the dominant noise sources for many engineering applications, including aircraft wings, (wind) turbine blades, and non-cavitating marine propellers such as those found on tidal turbines, naval vessels and submarines. Incorporating a better understanding of the...

The surge in demand for inland vessel goods transportation has necessitated the operation of larger vessels with increased drafts. These larger vessels generate significant induced loads from their more powerful bow thrusters during berthing and mooring. These loads can lead to scour, which ultimately results in instability of the quay wall. To...

Given the expected increase of automation in the vehicles of the future, touchscreens are expected to be used in a wide variety of scenarios, including the ones that can become safety-critical.<br/>One disadvantage of the direct interaction approach that characterizes touchscreen operation is the feedthrough of accelerations through the human...

At the turbulent/non-turbulent interface (TNTI) of a jet flow, momentum is transferred from the turbulent jet fluid to the fluid at rest. This transfer is governed by two mechanisms. One of them is related to the large scales of the flow and the other relates to the small scales of the flow. Which of the two is dominant is still a point of...

The current need to ensure an effective and prompt transition of the energy sector towards zero-carbon has renewed the interest for nuclear technology. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) seem particularly interesting for their reduced capital cost, operational flexibility and enhanced safety and security. Different SMR concepts are being developed...

Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

Wall-resolved large-eddy simulations (LES) are performed to investigate Reynolds number effects in supersonic turbulent boundary layers (TBLs) at Mach 2.0. The resulting database covers more than a decade of friction Reynolds number Re<sub>τ</sub>, from 242 to 5554, which considerably extends the parameter range of current high-fidelity...

DNS and RANS simulations were carried out for core-annular flow in a horizontal pipe and results were compared with experiments carried out with water and oil in our lab. In contrast to most existing studies for core-annular flow available in the literature, the flow annulus is not laminar but turbulent. This makes the simulations more...

Aortic valve disease is often treated with bioprosthetic valves. An alternative treatment is aortic valve neocuspidization which is a relatively new reparative procedure whereby the three aortic cusps are replaced with patient pericardium or bovine tissues. Recent research indicates that aortic blood flow is disturbed, and turbulence effects...

Background: Surgical site infection (SSI) in the form of postoperative deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) after cardiac surgery is a rare, but potentially fatal, complication. In addressing this, the focus is on preventive measures, as most risk factors for SSI are not controllable. Therefore, operating rooms are equipped with heating,...

Direct numerical simulations of channel flow and temporal boundary layer at a Reynolds number Reτ=1500 are used to assess the scale-by-scale mechanisms of wall turbulence. From the peak of turbulence production embedded at the small scales of the near-wall region, spatially ascending reverse cascades are generated that move through self-similar...

We propose several enhancements to improve the accuracy and performance of the digital filter turbulent inflow generation technique and assess their efficacy in the context of wall-resolved large-eddy simulations of a compressible turbulent boundary layer. Improvements of accuracy include a more realistic correlation function for the...

This paper presents a study of developing a numerical turbulent model in a cavity heated from below using eddy viscosity combined with elliptic relaxation approach. The model uses a set of differential equations that consist of kinetic energy, its dissipation, variance of temperature, velocity scale and elliptic relaxation parameter, which are...

This paper reports on the efficacy of the Görtler number in scaling the laminar-turbulent boundary-layer transition on rotating cones facing axial inflow. Depending on the half-cone angle and axial flow strength, the competing centrifugal and cross-flow instabilities dominate the transition. Traditionally, the flow is evaluated by using two...

During extreme conditions, the transport of the wave-averaged suspended sediment concentrations in the inner surf zone affects dune erosion. Although large-scale laboratory experiments have provided insight in what drives these sediment concentrations, corresponding field data are lacking. To fill this gap, novel field observations of suspended...

Dimpled surfaces have gained increasing attention in recent years for their potential to reduce turbulent skin friction, a capability previously acknowledged for its beneficial implications on heat transfer. As a passive drag reduction method, dimpled surfaces offer significant advantages for marine applications due to their effectiveness and...

The vibration of fuel rods induced by the fast flowing coolant is a known challenge to nuclear power plant designers and operators. If not dealt with adequately, the vibrations could lead to undesirable wear and tear of the cladding, which, in turn, could result in fuel rod failures and costly unplanned outages of the power plant. Hence,...

Navigating touchscreens in vehicles becomes increasingly challenging when subjected to external perturbations like air turbulence or bumpy roads. These perturbations can lead to a loss in task performance, reduced finger accuracy, and increased frustration among users. To address these issues, electrovibration has emerged as a promising...

The Dutch energy strategy expects renewable energy sources like wind and solar to provide around 70% of the yearly electricity by 2030. In order to achieve these targets, models that efficiently and accurately capture the flow around wind turbines would be immensely helpful for both planning and operation of wind farms.<br/><br/>For wind turbine...
