  1. 1. Experimental study of passive scalar mixing in swirling jet flows

    Author : Ramis Örlü; Henrik Alfredsson; Peter Johansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fluid mechanics; swirling jet; turbulence; passive scalar; mixing; hot-wire anemometry; cold-wire; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Despite its importance in various industrial applications there is still a lack of experimental studies on the dynamic and thermal field of swirling jets in the near-field region. The present study is an attempt to close this lack and provide new insights on the effect of rotation on the turbulent mixing of a passive scalar, on turbulence (joint) statistics as well as the turbulence structure.

  2. 2. Flow measurements related to gas exchange applications

    Author : Fredrik Laurantzon; Henrik Alfredsson; Venkatesa Vasanta Ram; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Flow meters; vortex flow meters; compressible flow; pulsating flow; hot-wire anemometry; cold-wire anemometry; time resolved measurements; wavelet analysis;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with flow measuring techniques applied to steady and pulsating gas flows relevant to gas exchange systems for internal combustion engines. Gas flows in such environments are complex, i.e. they are inhomogeneous, three-dimensional, unsteady, non-isothermal and exhibit significant density changes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Flow Measuring Techniques in Steady and Pulsating Compressible Flows

    Author : Fredrik Laurantzon; Henrik Alfredsson; Björn Lindgren; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Flow measuring; compressible flow; steady flow; pulsating flow; hot-wire anemometry; cold-wire anemometry; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with flow measuring techniques applied on steady and pulsatingflows. Specifically, it is focused on gas flows where density changes canbe significant, i.e. compressible flows. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental study of turbulent flows through pipe bends

    Author : Athanasia Kalpakli; P. Henrik Alfredsson; Ramis Örlü; Christoph Brücker; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbulent flow; swirl; pulsation; pipe bend; hot-wire anemometry; cold-wire anemometry; laser Doppler velocimetry; stereoscopic particle image velocimetry.;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with turbulent flows in 90 degree curved pipes of circular cross-section. The flow cases investigated experimentally are turbulent flow with and without an additional motion, swirling or pulsating, superposed on the primary flow. READ MORE

  5. 5. Turbulence Measurements in a Natural Convection Boundary Layer and a Swirling Jet

    Author : Abolfazl Shiri; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; swirl; constant current bridge; high Rayleigh number; natural convection; Jet; cold-wire thermometry; vertical cylinder; laser Doppler anemometry; turbulent boundary layers;

    Abstract : Two sets of experimental measurement were carried out on an axisymmetric swirling jet flow and a natural convection boundary layer. In the first experiment, the far field of an incompressible swirling jet, discharged into a quiescent ambient has been studied using laser Doppler anemometry. READ MORE
