      Effects of periodic gravity modulation in microgravity convection systems 

      Cyr, Martha N.; Alexandrou, Andreas N.; Olinger, D. J. (Publ by ASME, 1993)
      Natural convection in an enclosure that is subjected to periodic excitations is investigated using a classical mixed Galerkin finite element method. The modulation is incorporated in the momentum equations, through a ...

      Inertial, viscous and yield stress effects in Bingham fluid filling of a 2-D cavity 

      Alexandrou, Andreas N.; Duc, E.; Entov, V. (2001)
      The present study concentrates on Bingham fluid filling of a 2-D cavity and examines the relative importance of inertial, viscous and yield stress effects on the filling profile. The results presented are obtained using ...

      Three-dimensional direct numerical simulations of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic flows over an obstacle in a confined geometry 

      Kanaris, Nicolas A. (Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου, Πολυτεχνική Σχολή / University of Cyprus, Faculty of Engineering, 2012-12)
      Στην παρούσα διατριβή παρουσιάζεται η υδροδυναμική και μαγνητοϋδροδυναμική ροή που αναπτύσσεται γύρω από ένα κύλινδρο κυκλικής διατομής, σε γεωμετρίες περιορισμένες από σταθερά τοιχώματα. Η επίδραση του περιορισμού της ...
