  1. 1. Droplet Breakup in Automotive Spray Painting

    Author : Björn O Andersson; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; atomization; spray painting; computational fluid dynamics; breakup; surface tension;

    Abstract : Paint and surface treatment processes in a car paint shop are to a largeextent automated and performed by robots. Having access to tools thatincorporate the flexibility of robotic path planning with fast and efficientsimulation of the processes is important to reduce the time required forintroduction of new car models, reduce the environmental impact and increasethe quality.

  2. 2. Dynamics of Fluid Particles in Turbulent Flows; CFD simulations, Model Development and Phenomenological Studies

    Author : Ronnie Andersson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Particle Image Velocimetry; Coalescence; Breakup; Multiphase Flow; Computational Fluid Dynamics; Planar laser induced fluorescence; Population Balance Modelling; Turbulence; High speed imaging technique; Mass Transfer; Refractive index matching;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates the dynamics of fluid particles in turbulent flows, which plays an important role in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and petroleum industries. Phenomenological studies, new mathematical models for the breakup phenomena, and development of a simulation method for chemical reactors constitute the main parts of this thesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling and simulation of rotary bell spray atomizers in automotive paint shops

    Author : Björn O Andersson; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spray painting; computational fluid dynamics; atomization; multiphase flow; breakup; coating; surface tension;

    Abstract : The paint and surface treatment processes in automotive paint shops are characterized by multiphase and free surface flows, multiphysics interactions, multiscale phenomena, and large moving geometries. The current version of the software for simulation of spray painting developed at the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre relies on measurements of droplet size distributions and velocity profiles below the applicator that can be used as input to the simulations.

  4. 4. In-Nozzle Flow and Primary Breakup Investigations of Marine Two-Stroke Diesel Engine Injectors

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Reto Balz; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; in-nozzle flow; fuel injection; primary breakup; cavitation;

    Abstract : This thesis will focus on the experimental studies of in-nozzle flow and primary breakup of pressure-atomized fuel sprays as used in large marine two-stroke Diesel engines. To further increase the efficiency of large marine two-stroke Diesel engines, a better understanding of the fuel spray atomization process is necessary. READ MORE

  5. 5. Scenarios of drop deformation and breakup in sprays

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Tímea Kékesi; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Sprays are used in a wide range of engineering applications, in the food and pharmaceutical industry in order to produce certain materials in the desired powder-form, or in internal combustion engines where liquid fuel is injected and atomized in order to obtain the required air/fuel mixture. The optimization of such processes requires the detailed understanding of the breakup of liquid structures. READ MORE
