An analytical solution for rapidly distorted turbulent shear flow in a rotating frame
(2006)In this study we apply rapid distortion theory to the case of nonstratified homogeneous turbulence that is sheared in a frame that counterrotates at a rate that matches in magnitude the rotation associated with the mean ...

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) Simulations of aerosol deposition in the lungs
(TSFP9, 2015)In the current study, Large Eddy Simulations (LES) are used to investigate the transport and deposition of inhaled aerosol particles (dp = 0.1, 0.5, 1, 2.5, 5, 10 μm) in a realistic geometry of the human airways under ...

The effect of flow rate, head position, and inhaler orientation on the airflow and particle deposition in an mribased mouththroat geometry
(International Symposium on Turbulence and Shear Flow Phenomena, TSFP10, 2017)The mouththroat plays a key role in the administration of inhaled medicines. It is an area of intense filtration, where an unacceptably high fraction of the released drug dose is deposited and thus wasted. Due to the ...

Effect of turbulent pulsating flow around a nearwall submerged cylinder on the potential motion of bed and suspended loads
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, 2016)In the present work, the pulsating flow around a submerged cylinder close to the impermeable seabed is examined by means of Large Eddy Simulations (LES). A Reynolds number equal to Re = 5000 is considered, based on the ...

Effect of yield penetration on column plastic hinge length
(2018)The required confined zone in critical regions of columns and piers undergoing lateral sway during earthquakes is related to the plastic hinge length where inelastic deformation and damage develops. The exact definition ...

Full magnetohydrodynamic solution of liquidmetal flow in an insulating pipe subjected to a strong fringing magnetic field
(2012)This paper addresses liquidmetal flow under a strong, fringing, decreasing magnetic field in an insulating circular pipe by a full resolution of the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. The aims of the paper are first to ...

Fully turbulent flow in a physiologically realistic human airway bifurcation
(TSFP9, 2015)Recent computational studies have shown that the airflow in the upper human airways is turbulent during much of the respiratory cycle. A feature of respiratory airflow that poses a challenge to computations based on ...

Article
The Influence of CrackFace Normal and Shear Stress Loading on Hydraulic FractureTip Singular Plastic Fields
(2018)We investigated the singular plastic fields at the crack tip of a fracture that is loaded with normal and shear loads due to a viscous flow in a hydraulic fracturing. The level of the expected shear load in comparison with ...

Numerical simulation of injection mold filling for semisolid materials
(ASME, 1995)Processing of metals and metal matrix composites in the semisolid state is an emerging new technology and is becoming increasingly popular. This method provides several advantages over the traditional liquid state processing ...

Numerical simulations of turbulent flow in an eccentric annulus of unit eccentricity
(TSFP9, 2015)In this study, we perform Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of fully developed turbulent flows in eccentric annuli having different diameter ratios. Annuli of unit eccentricity, and diameter ratios of 0.2591 and 0.1395 ...

Article
Shear rejuvenation, aging and shear banding in yield stress fluids
(2009)The purpose of this work is to simulate shear rejuvenation and aging effects in shear thinning yield stress fluids in a typical rotational rheometer and to provide a common framework to describe the behavior of yield stress ...

Structure anisotropy in MHD turbulence subjected to mean shear and frame rotation
(Affiliation: Dept. of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, CyprusAffiliation: Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, United StatesAffiliation: Center for Turbulence Research, NASA Ames Research Center, United StatesCorrespondence Address: Kassinos, S.C.Dept. of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprusemail: kassinos@ucy.ac.cy, 2005)We consider homogeneous turbulence in a conducting fluid that is exposed to a uniform external magnetic field while being sheared in fixed and rotating frames. We take both the framerotation axis and the applied magnetic ...

A structurebased model for the transport of passive scalars in homogeneous turbulent flows
(2016)A structurebased model has been constructed, for the first time, for the study of passive scalar transport in turbulent flows. The scalar variance and the largescale scalar gradient variance are proposed as the two ...
