Hydrodynamics Of An Oscillating Foil With A Long Flexible Trailing Edge
In nature, many swimming and flying creatures use the principle of oscillatory lift-based propulsion. Often the flapping element is flexible, totally or partially. The flow dynamics because of a flexible flap is thus of ...
Sedimentation Of Heavy Particles In Turbulence
Behavior of particles in buoyancy driven turbulent flow at Ra ≈ 10º is investigated experimentally. The volume fraction of the particles is low enough for the inter particle influence to be neglected, the mass loading ...
Numerical Simulation of Convection Dominated Flows using High Resolution Spectral Method
A high resolution spectrally accurate three-dimensional flow solver is developed in order to simulate convection dominated fluid flows. The governing incompressible Navier Stokes equations along with the energy equation ...
Buoyancy Driven Turbulence In A Vertical Pipe
High Reynolds Number Flow Over A Backward-Facing Step
Flow separation and reattachment happens in many fluid mechanical situations occurring in engineering applications as well as in nature. The flow over a backward-facing step represents a geometrically simple flow situation ...
Experiments On Rolling Sphere Submerged In An Incompressible Fluid
Experiments are done using a smooth solid rigid homogeneous acrylic sphere rolling on an inclined plane which is submerged in water. The motivation for these experiments comes from a need to understand a class of solid-fluid ...
Shock Wave-boundary Layer Interaction in Supersonic Flow over Compression Ramp and Forward-Facing Step
Shock wave-boundary layer interactions (SWBLIs) have been studied ex-tensively due to their practical importance in the design of high speed ve-hicles. These interactions, especially the ones leading to shock induced ...
Unsteady Flow Field Downstream Of A Sudden Expansion
Separating and reattaching ﬂows are important in a large number of engineering conﬁgurations. The ﬂow through a sudden expansion (backward-facing step) represents a conceptually simple case of this class of ﬂows and hence ...
