  1. 1. 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

  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. Investigations of Flow Patterns in Ventilated Rooms Using Particle Image Velocimetry : Applications in a Scaled Room with Rapidly Varying Inflow and over a Wall-Mounted Radiator

    Author : Amir Sattari; Ivo Martinac; Mats Sandberg; Dirk Müller; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Particle Image Velocimetry PIV ; experimental study; structured light 3D scanning system; ventilation; varying flow rate; room model; wall-mounted radiator; air; water; flow; Particle Image Velocimetry PIV ; experimentell studie; scanningsystem för strukturerat 3D-ljus; ventilation; varierande tilluftsflöde; rumsmodell; väggmonterad radiator; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : This thesis introduces and describes a new experimental setup for examining the effects of pulsating inflow to a ventilated enclosure. The study aimed to test the hypothesis that a pulsating inflow has potential to improve ventilation quality by reducing the stagnation zones through enhanced mixing. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mixing and Stagnation in Drinking Water Storage Tanks

    Author : Ola Nordblom; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : storage tank; service reservoir; jet mixing; khappa - epsilon model; stagnation; tracer test; temperature measurement; thermal stratification; buoyant jets; CFD model;

    Abstract : This thesis contributes to studies of the assessment of mixing conditions in drinking water storage tanks and analyses of parameters governing mixing rates and formation of stagnant zones. The work also contributes to a validation of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models of jet-forced mixing in storage tanks under neutral and thermally stratified conditions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental Study on Truck Related Power Losses: The Churning Losses in a Transmission Model and Active Flow Control at an A-pillar of Generic Truck Cabin Model

    Author : Erwin Adi Hartono; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hot wire anemometry; Machine learning; Computational Fluid Dynamics; A-Pillar; Transmission; Flow separation; Churning losses; CFD; Gearbox; Torque measurement; Particle Image Velocimetry; Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics.; Active Flow Control; SPH; Curve fit; Synthetic Jets; Load independent power losses; Aeration; Flow visu- alization;

    Abstract : The fight with global warming constantly forces vehicle manufacturers to innovate, in order to be able to reduce the CO2 emissions of their product. This means that marginal efficiency gains in every component are considered beneficial for total reduction of CO2 emissions. READ MORE
