  1. 1. Experimental studies in jet flows and zero pressure-gradient turbulent boundary layers

    Author : Ramis Örlü; P. Henrik Alfredsson; Tim B. Nickels; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Axisymmetric jet; swirling jet; coaxial jet; heated jet; zero pressuregradient turbulent boundary layer; wall-bounded turbulent flows; overlap region; passive scalar mixing; hot-wire anemometry; spatial resolution.; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the description and development of two classical turbulent shear flows, namely free jet and flat plate turbulent boundary layer flows. In both cases new experimental data has been obtained and in the latter case comparisons are also made with data obtained from data bases, both of experimental and numerical origin. READ MORE

  2. 2. Direct numerical simulations of the rotating-disk boundary-layer flow

    Author : Ellinor Appelquist; Philipp Schlatter; Henrik Alfredsson; Rebecca Lingwood; Christopher Davies; KTH; []
    Keywords : Fluid mechanics; boundary layer; rotating disk; laminar-turbulent transition; convective instability; absolute instability; secondary instability; crossflow instability; direct numerical simulations; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the instabilities of the incompressible boundary-layer flow that is induced by a disk rotating in otherwise still fluid. The results presented are mostly limited to linear instabilities derived from direct numerical simulations (DNS) but with the objective that further work will focus on the nonlinear regime, providing greater insights into the transition route to turbulence.

  3. 3. The rotating-disk boundary-layer flow studied through numerical simulations

    Author : Ellinor Appelquist; Philipp Schlatter; Henrik Alfredsson; Rebecca Lingwood; Benoît Pier; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; laminar-turbulent transition; convective instability; absolute instability; crossflow instability; direct numerical simulations; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the instabilities of the incompressible boundary-layer flow thatis induced by a disk rotating in otherwise still fluid. The results presented include bothwork in the linear and nonlinear regime and are derived from direct numerical sim-ulations (DNS). READ MORE

  4. 4. A new experimental setup for studies on wake flow instability and its control

    Author : Bengt Fallenius; Jens Fransson; Henrik Alfredsson; Christoffer Norberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract :  A new experimental setup for studies on wake flow instability and its control, which has been designed and manufactured, is introduced and described. The main body is a dual-sided flat plate with an elliptic leading edge and a blunt trailing edge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental design and vortex analyses in turbulent wake flows

    Author : Bengt E. G. Fallenius; Jens H. M. Fransson; Henrik Alfredsson; Marianna Braza; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bluff bodies; wake flow; experimental design; vortex detection; flow control; asymptotic suction boundary layer;

    Abstract : A new experimental setup for studies on wake flow instability and its control that successfully has been designed and manufactured, is introduced and de- scribed. The main body is a dual-sided flat plate with an elliptic leading edge and a blunt trailing edge. READ MORE
