When a conducting fluid moves in a magnetic field, electrical fields are induced in the fluid which in turn result in the flow of electric currents. The interaction of the currents with the magnetic fields results in forces which effect the fluid flow pattern and modifications in the magnetic field distributions. The study of this complicated interaction of moving conducting fluid with the magnetic field is the science of MHD which is described by the electromagnetic field equations of Maxwell along with the equations of the fluid dynamics.

The present thesis deals with the code development of a 2-D finite volume and lattice Boltzmann method for steady, incompressible fluid flow problems and the also the computational performance of both the methods is studied for various fluid flow problems. The former method uses Navier-Stokes equation to capture fluid motion. The code is based on SIMPLE algorithm for pressure-velocity coupling of incompressible flows using staggered grid arrangement. The diffusion term in the governing equations is discretized using deferred central-difference scheme and the convection term is discretized using deferred QUICK scheme. The latter one uses Boltzmann equation with D2Q9 model. The soundness of Lattice Boltzmann and finite volume method is checked by implementing it on test problems including Lid-driven cavity flow, Pipe flow and Backward-facing step (BFS) flow. All the results obtained in the present work are validated with the results available in the literature. The results obtained from both the methods were in excellent agreement with each other as well as with the published data. In pipe flow, the entrance length has been measured for various Reynolds numbers.

In fluid mechanics, velocity measurement is fundamental in order to improve the behavior knowledge of the flow. Velocity maps help us to understand the mean flow structure and its fluctuations, in order to further validate codes. Laser velocimetry is an optical technique for velocity measurements; it is based on light scattering by tiny particles assumed to follow the flow, which allows the local fluid flow velocity and its fluctuations to be determined. It is a widely used non-intrusive technique to measure velocities in fluid flows, either locally or in a map. This book presents the various techniques of laser velocimetry, as well as their specific qualities: local measurements or in plane maps, mean or instantaneous values, 3D measurements. Flow seeding with particles is described with currently used products, as well as the appropriate aerosol generators. Post-processing of data allows us to extract synthetic information from measurements and to perform comparisons with results issued from CFD codes. The principles and characteristics of the different available techniques, all based on the scattering of light by tiny particles embedded in the flow, are described in detail; showing how they deliver different information, either locally or in a map, mean values and turbulence characteristics.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Physics - Electrodynamics, grade: 3, Khulna University, language: English, abstract: Fluid flow in a straight duct is of great importance. It has large applications in chemical and mechanical engineering. A lot of research works regarding fully developed flow have been carried out at different times. The aim of this thesis is to make some numerical calculations on the fluid flow in a rotating rectangular straight duct in presence of magnetic field which has been interested to the engineering communication and to the investigators dealing with the problem in many industrial applications. The results of this investigation may not have direct practical applications but are relevant to the problems mentioned above. The fluid flowing through a rectangular straight duct to rotate at a constant angular velocity about an axis normal to a plane including the duct is subjected to both Coriolis and centrifugal forces. Such rotating passages are used in cooling systems for conductors of electric generators. Flow in a rotating straight pipe is of interest because the secondary flows in this case are qualitatively similar to those in stationary curved system in view of the similar centrifugal mechanism including the secondary curved systems.

Electrokinetics is a term applied to a group of physicochemical phenomena involving the transport of charges, action of charged particles, effects of applied electric potential and fluid transport in various porous media to allow for a desired migration or flow to be achieved. These phenomena include electrokinetics, electroosmosis, ion migration, electrophoresis, streaming potential and electroviscosity. These phenomena are closely related and all contribute to the transport and migration of different ionic species and chemicals in porous media. The physicochemical and electrochemical properties of a porous medium and the pore fluid, and the magnitudes of the applied electrical potential all impact the direction and velocity of the fluid flow. Also, an electrical potential is generated upon the forced passage of fluid carrying charged particles through a porous medium. The use of electrokinetics in the field of petroleum and environmental engineering was groundbreaking when George Chilingar pioneered its use decades ago, but it has only been in recent years that its full potential has been studied. This is the first volume of its kind ever written, offering the petroleum or environmental engineer a practical “how to” book on using electrokinetics for more efficient and better oil recovery and recovery from difficult reservoirs. This groundbreaking volume is a must-have for any petroleum engineer working in the field, and for students and faculty in petroleum engineering departments worldwide.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: A cell culture System to mimic the circumferential expansion of the arterial wall was supplemented with a flow control System for model enhancement. The given System imposed uniaxial sinusoidal stretch (1 Hz) with a 10 % elongation to an elastic silicone substrate upon which rat aortic smooth muscle cells were cultured. Occurring fluid motion during a stretch experiment caused oscillating shear stress upon the Gell layer of approximately 0.6 dynes/cm2 (60 x 10-3 N/m2) and was controlled by the newly added oscillatory flow System. Experiments were performed and investigated at 0, 4, and 24 hours. Morphological observations correlated with the results obtained by the initial stretch experiments. A final median angle of orientation of 60° - 70° from the axis of stretch was observed. Both control cultures remained randomly oriented throughout all experiments. Inhibition of cell proliferation alter 4 hours of cyclic stretch, observed by Karen J. Schnetzer could not be confirmed. However, growth related results did correspond to the preceding study in a qualitative manner. Influences of oscillatory flow an SMC growth and morphology were not different to the steady-stretch control. Analysis of results confirmed the assumption made for the earlier culture system, that effects of oscillatory fluid motion occurring during the cyclic stretch experiment could be neglected.

In this work, we investigate turbidity currents flowing into a mini-basin. Turbidity currents are particle-driven gravity flows with small density differences between particle-laden and clear fluid. The power of these flows can be enormous and can cause big damage to their environment. One practical relevance for the understanding of the physics of such flows is inter alia that mini-basins are prime targets for oil exploration when they are filled with sediments and thus of economic importance. The simulations in this study are two-dimensional, using finite difference direct numerical simulation of Navier-Stokes and transport equations. In this study, we test several configurations of geometries and change the physical properties of the currents. In the results, we present how these parameters influence the flow of the current, the deposit profile of the settled particles, and we show how much of the initial mass is trapped in the basin. As the focus of this study is on a lock-exchange configuration, we additionally present results for a constant inflow into the basin.

This title concerns the use of a particle filter framework to track objects defined in high-dimensional state-spaces using high-dimensional observation spaces. Current tracking applications require us to consider complex models for objects (articulated objects, multiple objects, multiple fragments, etc.) as well as multiple kinds of information (multiple cameras, multiple modalities, etc.). This book presents some recent research that considers the main bottleneck of particle filtering frameworks (high dimensional state spaces) for tracking in such difficult conditions.

Extrusion processing of food materials has become an increasingly important manufacturing method, and its applications have broadened substantially in the past two decades. From the point of view of transport phenomena, extrusion processing can be thought of as a combination of several processes, including fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, mixing, shearing, particle size reduction, melting, texturizing, caramelisaing, plasticising, shaping, and forming. Depending upon the product, one or many of these processes will take place in an extruder. This book is a compilation or concise report on the research work done by researchers from the Harare Institute of Technology as a contribution on the optimization of extrusion process by determining the effects of feed properties on extrusion failures and implementing a solution.

Injection wells have been used in enhanced oil recovery and carbon dioxide sequestration in petroleum industries for many decades. Pressure and temperature profiles of fluid flow in the injection well are two main parameters of interest for petroleum engineers to determine optimum injection conditions and wellbore completion design especially in thermal injection projects and deep wells. Although some sophisticated software packages are available for such purpose, but they suffer from slow running time, difficulty of model building skills for inexperienced users and assumptions used in those packages. In this study, a new rapid and robust procedure has been developed to calculate the pressure and temperature profiles along the depth of the wellbore by solving governing wellbore equations. The wellbore is discretized into segments and wellbore governing equations of mass, momentum and energy balance is solved simultaneously in every segment. Five injection cases from literatures, incompressible and compressible fluid flows, were used to confirm that the procedure is reproducible in terms of its behaviour, which is similar to field data.

This book describes the key factors of particle morphology quantification and its characteristics that govern the interparticle behaviour of granular soils. A standardised and cost effective method of quantifying particle shape parameters has not been widely recognised yet, therefore the methods are still being debated today. In this booklet, explanation of a new approach of particle shape classification was presented. Cluster and statistical analysis was used to find a single representative value of the particle shape parameters from 5 different sand samples. With that, the behaviour of the shear strength and dilatancy parameters of granular soils was able to be understood clearly. Thus, this contributes in improving the fundamental understanding on the development of parametric correlations on the strength behaviour of sands based on the new methods of particle morphology classification.

Monolithic polymers are used as stationary phases for capillary electrochromatography (CEC) and micro-liquid chromatography (µ-LC). There are two types of such monoliths: silica- and organic polymer-based monoliths. Organic polymer-based monolithic stationary phases have several advantages over silica-based monoliths. The preparation of organic polymer monoliths is simple and straightforward. They are prepared by in situ free radical polymerization of a mixture of monomers dissolved in a porogenic liquid in the presence of an initiator (system) inside a capillary or a microfluidic chip. Monolithic material can be considered as single large particle that does not contain interparticular voids. Therefore, all the mobile phase flow through the stationary phase compared to the convective flow in the conventional particle-based stationary phases, which greatly accelerates the rate of mass transfer. This is particularly useful in separation of large molecules such as proteins, and so such novel stationary phases have many applications in proteomics.Ease of preparation, speed of analysis, and good resolution are two major advantages of monolithic stationary phases.

Permeability is the primary control on fluid flow in the Earth’s crust and is key to a surprisingly wide range of geological processes, because it controls the advection of heat and solutes and the generation of anomalous pore pressures. The practical importance of permeability – and the potential for large, dynamic changes in permeability – is highlighted by ongoing issues associated with hydraulic fracturing for hydrocarbon production (“fracking”), enhanced geothermal systems, and geologic carbon sequestration. Although there are thousands of research papers on crustal permeability, this is the first book-length treatment. This book bridges the historical dichotomy between the hydrogeologic perspective of permeability as a static material property and the perspective of other Earth scientists who have long recognized permeability as a dynamic parameter that changes in response to tectonism, fluid production, and geochemical reactions.
