Effect of turbulent pulsating flow around a near-wall 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 ...
An analytical solution for rapidly distorted turbulent shear flow in a rotating frame
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 ...
When structure makes a difference: Computation of rotating wall-bounded flows with an algebraic structure-based model
(Affiliation: Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia 1678, CyprusAffiliation: Center for Turbulence Research, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, United StatesCorrespondence Address: Kassinos, S.C.Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia 1678, Cyprusemail: email@example.com, 2005)
Two linear eddy-viscosity models, the ν 2-f and κ-ω models, have been combined with an algebraic structure-based algorithm for the evaluation of the Reynolds stresses. This closure was originally designed as an integral ...
Numerical simulations of turbulent flow in an eccentric annulus of unit eccentricity
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 ...
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: firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 frame-rotation axis and the applied magnetic ...
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) Simulations of aerosol deposition in the lungs
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 ...
