      An analytical solution for rapidly distorted turbulent shear flow in a rotating frame 

      Akylas, Evaggelos; Kassinos, Stavros C.; Langer, A. C. (2006)
      In this study we apply rapid distortion theory to the case of nonstratified homogeneous turbulence that is sheared in a frame that counter-rotates at a rate that matches in magnitude the rotation associated with the mean ...

      Direct numerical simulation of particle laden flow in a human airway bifurcation model 

      Stylianou, F. S.; Sznitman, J.; Kassinos, Stavros C. (2016)
      During the delivery of inhaled medicines, and depending on the size distribution of the particles in the formulation, airway bifurcations are areas of preferential deposition. Previous studies of laminar flow through airway ...

      Effect of turbulent pulsating flow around a near-wall submerged cylinder on the potential motion of bed and suspended loads 

      Fonias, E. N.; Grigoriadis, D. G. E. (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 ...

      The Influence of Crack-Face Normal and Shear Stress Loading on Hydraulic Fracture-Tip Singular Plastic Fields 

      Papanastasiou, Panos C.; Durban, D. (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 ...
