Two well-established classes of the interface capturing models are the level-set and phase-field models. Level-set formulations satisfy the maximum principle for the density but are not energy-stable. On the other hand, phase-field models do satisfy the second law of thermodynamics but lack the maximum principle for the density. In this paper...

Ventilation events are the result of masses of air being transported from the water surface along the hull, through the propeller plane. Previous research in literature has shown that ventilation induces large and sudden variations of the load on the propeller. The response of the propulsion system had not been documented before. This is a...

Phase separation based centrifugal forces is effective, and thus widely explored by the process industry. In an inline swirl separator, a core of the light phase is formed in the center of the device and captured further downstream. Given the inlet conditions, this gas core created varies in shape and size. To predict the separation behavior...

In this article, a microchannel thermal management system (MTMS) with the two-phase flow using the refrigerant R1234yf with low global warming potential is presented. The thermal test vehicles (TTVs) were made of either single or multiple thermal test chips embedded in the substrates, which were then attached to the MTMS. The system included...

In this work, we consider a Cahn–Hilliard phase field-based computational model for immiscible and incompressible two-component liquid flows with interfacial phenomena. This diffuse-interface complex-fluid model is given by the incompressible Navier–Stokes–Cahn–Hilliard (NSCH) equations. The coupling of the flow and phase field equations is...

Shifting from coal and oil towards sustainable energy sources is currently an urgent and global challenge. Compared to coal and oil, natural gas is a cleaner fossil fuel and may serve as a transition fuel. To meet future demands for gas there is a desire to optimize the production from existing reservoirs with their production facilities. In...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the surface and deep layers to generate electricity. The temperatures in the ocean hardly vary between day and night or between the seasons, which ensures a very constant energy production with OTEC. In order for OTEC to compete with the current forms of energy...

In solving two-phase flows, the location of the interface between the phases is necessary to handle interface jump conditions when solving the Navier-Stokes equation. Current interface capturing and advection methods, however, suffer from various issues. The level set method uses the signed distance to the interface and the interface being the...

This study aimed to characterise the gas-liquid flow and mixing behaviour in a gas-mixed anaerobic digester by improving phase interaction modelling using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A 2D axisymmetric model validated with experimental data was set up using an Eulerian-Eulerian method. Uncertainty factors, including bubble size, phase...

In dredging applications, deep sea mining and land reclamation projects typically large amounts of sediments are transported through pipes in the form of hyper concentrated (40% sediment or more) sediment-water mixtures or slurry. These slurries can flow at three different regimes. 1: fully suspended (homogeneous and stratified) 2: partially...

The climate change agreements require large investments in renewable energies. However, with the increasing demand for energy, immediately stopping the production and use of fossil fuels is not realistic. Natural gas is twice as clean as coal and hence could be considered as a transition fuel, which can help to find a balance between the...

In Pressurized Thermal Shock (PTS) applications, there is a co-existence of different flow regimes. The regimes can be divided in two main groups namely, dispersed two-phase flows and the separated two-phase flows having relatively larger interface. Simulating a two-phase flow itself is already a complex task. It gets even more complex when the flow...

The measurement of fluid pressure inside pores is a major challenge in experimental studies of two-phase flow in porous media. In this paper, we describe the manufacturing procedure of a micro-model with integrated fibre optic pressure sensors. They have a circular measurement window with a diameter of 260 (Formula presented.), which enables...

This study presents a literature review of work related to the two-phase flow patterns of vertical downward flow in plate heat exchangers with corrugated chevron plates. An understanding of these flow patterns is crucial for developing accurate models of plate heat exchangers functioning as condensers or absorbers. Flow pattern maps of the...

Two-phase thermal control systems are used for payloads that require temperature stability under high and fluctuating heat output. However, the complex interaction between the two phases in a flow makes it hard to predict the performance of such a system. The goal was to develop a numerical model able to predict the transient behaviour of such a...

Ultrasound Imaging Velocimetry (UIV, also known as 'echo-PIV') has, since its introduction a decade ago, been regarded as a promising tool to characterize non-transparent flows. Prime application examples are particle-laden flows and (in vivo) blood flow. Virtually all studies so far have been validation/comparison studies in laminar flow. In...

The tubing performance relation curve is a measure of well performance in gas well engineering. It describes the two-phase flow inside a well and as such is modeled as a two-phase one dimensional pipe flow. Convention claims that production points on the TPR curve to the right of its minimum are stable. There also exist claims about the region...

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is currently developed as a clean and sustainable energy technology for offshore application in tropical areas. The technology shows promising possibilities in combination with the Kalina cycle, a thermodynamic cycle for the generation of energy from low temperature difference heat sources using a working...

A general model is presented for short-range hydrodynamic interactions and head-on particle-particle/wall collisions. The model has been embedded in two distinct numerical methods for fully resolved simulation of finite-size particles in a viscous fluid. It accounts for the material properties of the particles and lubrication effects prior to...

Carbon dioxide injected in an aquifer rises quickly to the top of the reservoir and forms a gas cap from where it diffuses into the underlying water layer. Transfer of the CO2 to the aqueous phase below is enhanced due to the high density of the carbon dioxide containing aqueous phase. This paper investigates the behavior of the diffusive...
