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

    Author : Abolfazl Shiri; [2010]
    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

  3. 3. A Study of Turbulent Natural Convection Boundary Layers Using Large-Eddy Simulation

    Author : Darioush Gohari Barhaghi; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; natural convection boundary layer; DNS; LES; radiation heat transfer; free convection; cavity; vertical cylinder;

    Abstract : The structure of turbulent natural convection boundary layers in differentgeometries and the effect of the buoyancy on a mixed convection boundarylayer are investigated. These geometries comprise a vertical finitecylinder, a vertical infinite channel, a cavity and a vertical finite channel. READ MORE

  4. 4. Turbulence modelling applied to the atmospheric boundary layer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Werner Lazeroms; KTH.; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; turbulence; RANS models; explicit algebraic Reynolds-stress models; buoyancy; stable stratification; thermal convection; atmospheric boundary layer;

    Abstract : Turbulent flows affected by buoyancy lie at the basis of many applications, both within engineering and the atmospheric sciences. A prominent example of such an application is the atmospheric boundary layer, the lowest layer of the atmosphere, in which many physical processes are heavily influenced by both stably stratified and convective turbulent transport.

  5. 5. Semi-Toeplitz preconditioning for linearized boundary layer problems

    University dissertation from Uppsala University

    Author : Samuel Sundberg; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Numerical Analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Abstract : We have defined and analyzed a semi-Toeplitz preconditioner for time-dependent and steady-state convection-diffusion problems. Analytic expressions for the eigenvalues of the preconditioned systems are obtained. READ MORE
