  1. 1. Always on the wing - Fluid dynamics, flight performance and flight behavior of common swifts

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Per Henningsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Apus apus; aerodynamics; animal flight; kinematics; vortex wake; digital particle image velocimetry; DPIV; common swift; tracking radar; wind tunnel; migration; roosting flight;

    Abstract : The aerodynamics and kinematics behind the flight of animals are relatively unknown. Although animal flight has been studied for several hundreds of years, it is only in recent time that we have the technical abilities to study the mechanistic basis of animal flight. READ MORE

  2. 2. Birds in the Flow: Flight Mechanics, Wake Dynamics and Flight Performance

    University dissertation from Mikael Rosén, Ecology Building, SE-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Mikael Rosén; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Eleonora s falcon.; hunting; optimum wingspan; tail posture; wingbeat kinematics; wake topology; DPIV; flight performance; wake dynamics; flight mechanics; wind tunnel; Flight; bird;

    Abstract : I share my fascination of bird flight with many others, and here I summarise my thesis on the subject. This thesis emphasises the mechanics of bird flight by focusing on flight mechanics, wake dynamics and flight performance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental and Numerical Studies of Flows Related to the Processes of Atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Andreas Borg, Division of Fluid Mechanics, Department of Heat and Power Engineering, Ole Römers Väg 1, 221 00 Lund

    Author : Andreas Borg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technological sciences; Medicinsk teknik; Medical technology; Particle Image Velocimetry; Large eddy simulations; Atherosclerosis; Stenosis; Teknik; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the prediction of the fluid mechanical conditions in some specific large vessels in the human body. Large vessels are special in the way that the Reynolds number is relatively high and in the case of arteries the flow is pulsatile. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical Study of Dispersed Two-phase Flows

    University dissertation from Fluid Mechanics

    Author : Zhilei Wu; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal engineering; Teknik; Technological sciences; Eulerian Lagrangian model.; Eulerian Eulerian model; Lagrangian Particle Tracking; Large Eddy Simulation; Two-phase flow; Particle Image Velocimetry; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; termodynamik;

    Abstract : This thesis considers the numerical study of dispersed two-phase flows.Numerical simulations have been done to investigate the particle trasportation/dispersion effect in turbulent two-phase flows. Both turbulent bubble/water flows and turbulent particle/air flows are studied. READ MORE
