  1. 1. Wings, turbulent boundary layers and flow separation

    Author : Fermin Mallor; Philipp Schlatter; Ricardo Vinuesa; Ramis Örlü; Manuel García Villalba; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wings; turbulent boundary layers; adverse pressure gradients; flow separation; numerical simulations; wind-tunnel experiments; flow control.; Vingar; turbulenta gränsskikt; negativa tryckgradienter; avlösning; numeriska simuleringar; vindtunnel-experiment; flow control; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The present doctoral thesis investigates the turbulent flow developing around wing sections, focusing on the impact of adverse-pressure-gradient (APG) conditions on turbulent boundary layers (TBLs) and the physics of flow separation. Both experimental and numerical methods are employed to generate high-fidelity data sets and provide an in-depth analysis of the flow. READ MORE

  2. 2. Turbulent Boundary Layer Separation and Control

    Author : Ola Lögdberg; P. Henrik Alfredsson; Jens Fransson; Guido Buresti; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Flow control; adverse pressure gradient APG ; flow separation; vortex generators; jet vortex generators; pulsed jet vortex generators; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Boundary layer separation is an unwanted phenomenon in most technical applications, as for instance on airplane wings, ground vehicles and in internal flow systems. If separation occurs, it causes loss of lift, higher drag and energy losses. It is thus essential to develop methods to eliminate or delay separation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ribosomes and subunits from Escherichia coli studied by asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation

    Author : Mikael Nilsson; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metabolic engineering; VHb; Vitreoscilla hemoglobin; E. coli; Escherichia coli; separation; subunits; ribosomes; Asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation; flow FFF; optimization; biotechnological production; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation (FFF) separations of ribosomes and subunits have been studied. Ribosomal material was prepared from Escherichia coli (E. coli) cells and analyzed by the size separation technique. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical investigation of the flow and instabilities at part-load and speed-no-load in an axial turbine

    Author : Jelle Kranenbarg; Michel Cervantes; Lisa Prahl Wittberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Speed-no-load; vortical flow structures; flow instabilities; rotating stall; mitigation; independent guide vanes; axial turbine; swirling flow; off design operation; URANS; parametric study; blade clearance; head losses; diffusor; GEKO model; flow separation; hydraulic turbine; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Global renewable energy requirements rapidly increase with the transition to a fossil-free society. As a result, intermittent energy resources, such as wind- and solar power, have become increasingly popular. However, their energy production varies over time, both in the short- and long term.

  5. 5. Effects of Flow Structure on Particle Separation in Dissolved Air Flotation

    Author : Måns Lundh; Institutioner vid LTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; plasma; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Gases; fluid dynamics; plasmas; Gaser; fluiddynamik; Teknik; Technological sciences; modelling; retention time distribution; acoustic doppler velocimeter; flow structure; separation; water treatment; wastewater treatment;

    Abstract : Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) is a separation process in water and wastewater treatment. The removal function is based on reducing the density of the particle by producing aggregates of the particles and added micro-bubbles of air, thus lifting the aggregates to the water surface, where they can be removed as sludge.
