  • Zachos, Pavlos K.; MacManus, David G.; Chiereghin, Nicola (AIAA, 2015-06-19)
    The unsteady flow fields generated by convoluted aero engine intakes are major sources of instabilities that can compromise the performance of the down stream turbo machinery components. Hence, there exists a need for high ...
  • Jia, Chenhui; Cui, Zhiwu; Guo, Shijun; Qiu, Ming; Ma, Wensuo (Springer, 2019-01-03)
    In order to research the spherical spiral groove hybrid gas bearings, the Realizable k − ε turbulence model of gas film was established based on FLUENT. The simulation calculation method of 6-degrees of freedom passive ...
  • Kelman, J. B.; Greenhalgh, D. A.; Ramsay, Euan; Xiao, Dong; Reid, Derryck T. (Optical Society of America, 2004-08)
    A novel technique is demonstrated for the imaging of turbulent flows in which a single window to the flow is the only optical access required. A femtosecond laser is used to excite two-photon fluorescence in a disodium ...
  • Mealing , B. E. (Cranfield University, 1988-03)
    The original objective of this work, to improve the efficiency of a forward curved centrifugal fan, was redirected to the urgent solution of a serious impeller life problem arising under certain service conditions. Using ...
  • Resnick, Avi (Cranfield University, 1982-12)
    The subject of this work is the flow inside an axial pump impeller, which is studied both numerically and experimentally. The aim of the work is to provide a numerical method to predict the three-dimensional flow field ...
  • Clarke, J. F. (College of Aeronautics, 1958-11)
    Suitable forms of the equations for the flow of an inviscid, non-heat- conducting gas in which chemical reactions are occurring are derived, The effects of mass diffusion and non-equilibrium amongst the internal modes ...
  • Marsden, D. J.; Simpson, R. W.; Rainbird, W. J. (College of Aeronautics, 1958-02)
    A low speed investigation of the flow over a 40 degree apex angle delta wing with sharp leading edges had been made in order to ascertain details of the flow in the viscous region near the leading edge of the suction ...
  • Alenezi, Abdulrahman H.; Almutairi, Abdulrahman; Alhajeri, Hamad M.; Addali, Abdulmajid; Gamil, Abdelaziz A. A. (MDPI, 2018-06-13)
    The jet impingement technique is an effective method to achieve a high heat transfer rate and is widely used in industry. Enhancing the heat transfer rate even minimally will improve the performance of many engineering ...
  • Babinsky, Holger (1991)
    Approximate methods for calculating the surface pressures including the effects of viscous interactionare introduced for laminar and turbulent boundary layers. Experiments were performed with various models taking Schlieren ...
  • Creed, M. J.; Draper, S.; Nishino, Takafumi; Borthwick, A. G. L. (The Royal Society, 2017-04-26)
    A theoretical model, informed by numerical simulations based on the shallow water equations, is developed to predict the flow passing through and around a uniform porous obstacle in a shallow channel, where background ...
  • Zanforlin, Stefania; Nishino, Takafumi (Elsevier, 2016-08-18)
    We present a comprehensive set of two-dimensional (2D) unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (URANS) simulations of flow around a pair of counter-rotating vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs). The simulations are performed ...
  • Barnes, N. D. (1990)
    Mechanical seals are used extensively on rotary applications where the sealed fluid is under pressure. They may rightly be considered to be generally reliable and trouble free, many giving lives of over 3 years. However, ...
  • Charnley, C. J. (College of Aeronautics, 1963-09)
    Background study of work connected with this report entailed the collection of a large number of specialised and general technical publications concerning the techniques and applications of fluid computing. General ...
  • Sparks, T. (Cranfield University, 1996-12)
    An industrial rotor-stator mixer was fitted into a flow loop to carry out overall power balance, flow visualisation and residence time distribution experiments. These were performed on various rotor-stator geometries and ...
  • Wang, L.; Quant, R.; Kolios, Athanasios (Elsevier, 2016-09-17)
    The increasing size and flexibility of large wind turbine blades introduces considerable aeroelastic effects, which are caused by FSI (fluid structure interaction). These effects might result in aeroelastic instability ...
  • Nasir, Zaheer A.; Tyrrel, Sean F. (The Aerosol Society, 2015-11-12)
    Bioaerosols are ubiquitous in ambient air but there have been increasing concerns about their human exposure and to health impact due to ever increasing environmental emissions from sources such as biowaste and intensive ...
  • Autin, Olivier; Sakar, H; McAdam, Ewan J. (Wiley, 2018-04-24)
    Whilst direct observation (DO) methodologies can describe back‐transport of supra‐micron particles, present technologies are unable to discriminate submicron particles, which are primarily responsible for membrane fouling. ...
  • Psoma, Sotiria D. (Cranfield University, 1996-12)
    The aim of this thesis was to investigate the feasibility of simultaneous utilisation of pH and oxygen-dependent fluorescent indicators for the development of a novel fibre-optical fluorescence-based bio sensor. This ...
  • Ladyman, M. K.; Walton, J. G. A.; Lillenkampf, A.; Bradley, M. (2016-07-11)
    Formazan-based colorimetric cytotoxicity assays, such as the MTT assay, are typically used to assess cell viability with only metabolically active cells reducing tetrazolium salts into the formazans, which is then quantified ...
  • Emenike, Chidozie PraiseGod; Tenebe, Imokhai Theophilus; Jarvis, Peter (Elsevier, 2018-04-03)
