  1. 1. Computational studies of flow in Couette Rheometer and particle interaction in non-Newtonian fluids

    Author : Naser Hamedi; Strömningsteknik; []
    Keywords : Non-Newtonian fluids; Correction factor; Fluid properties; Couette Rheometer; Particle interaction; Sedimentation; Computational Fluid dynamics; Plug flow; Herschel Bulkley; Power-law fluid; Immeresed boundary method;

    Abstract : This work aims to study the flow of non-Newtonian fluids and has two main goals. First, the power-law and Herschel Bulkley fluids are studied in a Couette rheometer. Second, the static and dynamic interaction of dual particles in power-law fluid are investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Compression moulding of SMC : experiments and simulation

    Author : Jimmy Olsson; Daniel Ståhlberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Due to excellent properties and relatively low material and manufacturing costs, the use of fibre reinforced polymer composites have increased during the last decades. One method that is suitable for large scale productions of e.g. lightweight vehicle components is compression moulding of sheet moulding compound (SMC). READ MORE

  3. 3. Simulations of turbulent boundary layers with suction and pressure gradients

    Author : Alexandra Bobke; Philipp Schlatter; Ramis Örlü; Ayse Gul Gungor; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; boundary layers; near-wall turbulence; history effects; asymptotic suction boundary layers; large-eddy simulation;

    Abstract : The focus of the present licentiate thesis is on the effect of suction and pressure gradients on turbulent boundary-layer flows, which are investigated separately through performing numerical simulations.The first part aims at assessing history and development effects on adverse pressure-gradient (APG) turbulent boundary layers (TBL).

  4. 4. Heat-transfer Enhancement for Slurries from Biogas Plants− Properties, processes, and thermal systems

    Author : Jingjing Chen; Xiaoyan Ji; Bona Lu; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heat-transfer enhancement; slurry; rheological properties; computational fluid dynamics; twisted tubes; biogas production; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    Abstract :  Biomethane production from renewable residues with anaerobic digestion gains increasing attention as a crucial alternative to petroleum fuels. It has been vigorously developed, but the large amounts of subsidy from the government indicate that the process efficiency needs to be further improved. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical study of particle suspensions in Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids

    Author : Dhiya Alghalibi; Luca Brandt; Metin Muradoglu; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; inertial suspensions; rheology; non-Newtonian fluids; visco-elastic; sedimentation; deformable particle; hyper-elastic.; tröghetsbehäftad suspension; reologi; icke-Newtonska fluider; vis- koelastik; sedimentering; deformerbara partiklar; hyperelastik; Engineering Mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : Solid or deformable particles suspended in a viscous fluid are of scientific and technological interest in a broad range of applications. Pyroclastic flows from volcanoes, sedimentation flows in river bed, food industries, oil-well drilling, as well as blood flow in the human body and the motion of suspended micro-organisms in water (like plankton) are among the possible examples.
