Engineering turbulence modelling and experiments 6 proce[e]dings of the ERCOFTAC International Symposium on Engineering Turbulence Modelling and Measurements - ETMM6 - Sardinia, Italy, 23-25 May, 2005 by ERCOFTAC International Symposium on Engineering Turbulence Modelling and Measurements( )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Proceedings of the world renowned ERCOFTAC (International Symposium on Engineering Turbulence Modelling and Measurements). The proceedings include papers dealing with the following areas of turbulence: Eddy-viscosity and second-order RANS models Direct and large-eddy simulations and deductions for conventional modelling Measurement and visualization techniques, experimental studies Turbulence control Transition and effects of curvature, rotation and buoyancy on turbulence Aero-acoustics Heat and mass transfer and chemically reacting flows Compressible flows, shock phenomena Two-phase flows Applications in aerospace engineering, turbomachinery and reciprocating engines, industrial aerodynamics and wind engineering, and selected chemical engineering problems Turbulence remains one of the key issues in tackling engineering flow problems. These problems are solved more and more by CFD analysis, the reliability of which depends strongly on the performance of the turbulence models employed. Successful simulation of turbulence requires the understanding of the complex physical phenomena involved and suitable models for describing the turbulent momentum, heat and mass transfer. For the understanding of turbulence phenomena, experiments are indispensable, but they are equally important for providing data for the development and testing of turbulence models and hence for CFD software validation. As in other fields of Science, in the rapidly developing discipline of turbulence, swift progress can be achieved only by keeping up to date with recent advances all over the world and by exchanging ideas with colleagues active in related fields

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aim of this book is to give, within a single volume, an introduction to the fields of turbulence modelling and transition-to-turbulence prediction, and to provide the physical background for today's modelling approaches in these problem areas as well as giving a flavour of advanced use of prediction methods. Turbulence modelling approaches, ranging from single-point models based on the eddy-viscosity concept and the Reynolds stress transport equations (Chapters 3,4,5), to large-eddy simulation (LES) techniques (Ch. 7), are covered. The foundations of hydrodynamical stability and transition are presented (Ch. 2) along with transition prediction methods based on single-point closures (Ch. 6), LES techniques (Ch. 7) and the parabolized stability equations (Ch. 8). The book addresses engineers and researchers, in industry or academia, who are entering into the fields of turbulence or transition modelling research or need to apply turbulence or transition prediction methods in their work

Direct and large-eddy simulation I : selected papers from the First ERCOFTAC Workshop on Direct and Large-Eddy Simulation by Peter R Voke( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turbulence remains an unsolved problem even though we now know how to produce directly, with the help of modern supercomputers, accurate approximations to the equations that govern turbulent flows. The fact that we can predict some turbulence in this limited sense is nevertheless an enormous step towards the goal of full understanding. Direct numerical simulations and large-eddy simulations are these numerical solutions of turbulence, which reproduce with remarkable fidelity the statistical, structural and dynamical properties of physical turbulent and transitional flows. This volume contains selected papers from the First ERCOFTAC Workshop on Direct and Large-Eddy Simulation, which was held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, U.K. from 28--30 March 1994. The variety of flows now accessible to simulation is evident throughout the volume. Not only are many types of internal and external flow represented, including some complex geometries of engineering or geophysical importance, but the dynamically distinct regimes of incompressible and compressible flow, stratified, buoyant and other thermal flows, and chemically reacting flow are all simulated successfully. This book reveals the current state of direct numerical simulation and large-eddy simulation of transitional and turbulent flows, and will be an invaluable reference for all those with an active interest in these techniques
Diffusion and transport of pollutants in atmospheric mesoscale flow fields by Albert Gyr( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In regions as densely populated as Western Europe, prediction of the ecological implications of pollutant transport are important in order to minimise damage in the case of accidents, and to evaluate the possible influence of existing or planned sources. In most cases, such predictions depend on high-speed computation. The present textbook presents a mathematically explicit introduction in eight chapters: 1: An introduction to the basics of fluid dynamics of the atmosphere and the local events and mesoscale processes. 2: The types of PDEs describing atmospheric flows for limited area models, the problem of appropriate boundary conditions describing the topographical constraints, and well-posedness. 3: Thermodynamics of the atmosphere, dry and wet, its stability, and radiation processes, budgets and the influence of their sum. 4: Scaling and similarity laws for stable and convective turbulent atmospheric boundary layers and the influence of inhomogeneous terrain on the advection and the vertical dispersion, and the method of large eddy simulation. 5: Statistical processes in turbulent dispersion, turbulent diffusion and chemical reactions in fluxes. 6: Theoretical modelling of diffusion and dispersion of pollutant gases. 7: The influence of urban heat production on local climate. 8: Atmospheric inversion layers and lapping inversion, the stable boundary layer and nocturnal inversion

Three-dimensional velocity and vorticity measuring and image analysis techniques : lecture notes from the short course held in Zürich, Switzerland, 3-6 September 1996 by Th. A Dracos( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The need for three-dimensional measurements of velocity and at least its first derivatives is increasing in science as well as in technology. Moreover, velocity field measurements are necessary in many fields of fluid mechanics and related disciplines. In the first chapter of this volume recent developments in the traditional method of hot-wire anemometry are presented. Optical methods are increasingly used for velocity field measurements. Among them, Particle Image Velocimetry is, in practice, the best established. The state of the art in commercially available systems and a look at future developments are described in Chapter Two. Novel approaches to this topic, based on videogrammetric principles, are treated in Chapters Three and Four. Chapter Three treats the application of videogrammetry in Particle Tracking Velocimetry. The basic principles and their implementation are described in some detail. Performance tests show that the accuracy of the method is comparable to that of LDA. It is, however, a fully three-dimensional measuring technique, capable of determining long particle trajectories which are needed for the study of particle dispersion in turbulent flows and the associated Lagrangian statistics. Least Squares Matching is applied in Chapter Four to track in space three-dimensional patterns in small cuboids obtained by Laser-Induced Fluorescence Tomography. The method yields fully three-dimensional information on the velocity field, the vorticity field and the field of the rate of strain tensor. In addition, concentration distribution and its derivatives can be determined. It is a powerful, novel method for the study, not only of flow, but also of mixing processes. Special attention is given to presenting the basic theoretical aspects of these new methods as well as practical information needed for their application. This book is aimed at scientists and engineers involved in experimental work
