  1. 1. The age of transported scalars in fluid mechanics

    Author : Federico Ghirelli; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : grate furnace; velocity correlation; fluid age; scalar age; turbulence model; residence time; energy spectrum; turbulence age;

    Abstract : Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is applied to the reacting flow in the freeboard of a 30MW biofuel fired grate furnace and results are validated by comparison with data from an extensive measurement campaign. The influence of the fuel bed model on the results of the freeboard model is investigated. READ MORE

    Abstract : Atmospheric models are strongly dependent on the turbulent exchange of momentum, sensible heat and moisture (latent heat) at the surface. Oceans cover about 70% of the Earth’s surface and understanding the processes that control air-sea exchange is of great importance in order to predict weather and climate. READ MORE
