20171050266Evaluation of Optimum Modes and Conditions of Cavitation and Acoustic Absorption Intensification for Increasing Efficiency of Gas Mixtures Separation22The paper presents theoretical studies of absorption gas mixture separation under ultrasonic vibrations influence, which provides cavitation and acoustic process intensification. The theoretical studies based on consecutive consideration of this process beginning with single cavitation bubble dynamic which generates shockwave for increasing interface “gas-liquid” and ending with determining absorption productivity providing required concentration of target gas mixture component. In result of the studies, it is evaluated, that cavitation and acoustic intensification increase interface “gas-liquid” up to 3 times with amplitude of oscillations of solid surface 1…2 μm. From the data about surface increasing the analysis of the gas absorption process in the liquid film was performed. For this analysis, the model of gas absorption taking into account surface increasing under acoustic cavitation influence was developed. The model of absorption allows to obtain that the absorption productivity under ultrasonic vibrations influence is increased up to 2 times and more. The obtained results can be used for development of high-efficiency absorption apparatus that is supplemented by ultrasonic influence sources.12351246R.

]Numerical Study of Flow Past Two Transversely Oscillating Triangular Cylinders in Tandem at Low Reynolds Number22Flow past two tandem triangular cylinders forced to oscillate transversely in a uniform flow, is numerically investigated at a Reynolds number Re = 100. The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian formulation are solved by four-step fractional finite element method. The two cylinders are oscillated in phase and their motions are limited to low amplitudes with a wide frequency range. This study focuses on two typical spacings between the two cylinders, corresponding to vortex suppression (VS) regime and vortex formation (VF) regime respectively for flow past two stationary cylinders. Numerical results show that the response characteristics of two cylinders are significantly affected by the spacing, oscillation amplitude and frequency. For the VS spacing, both cylinders have a wider lock-on region, especially at relatively larger amplitude and higher frequency; the downstream wake patterns are mainly 2S and a combination of 2S* and 2S. However, for the VF spacing, the lock-on frequency range of the cylinders is even slightly narrower than that of a single oscillating cylinder; the wake field is more complex since it may comprises 2S, P+S and 2S* structures at some higher frequencies. Additionally, the hydrodynamic forces are also discussed in terms of mean and root mean square quantities, and reveal large differences between oscillating and stationary cylinders.12471260Q.Zhai1College of Harbour, Coastal and Offshore Engineering, Hohai University1College of Harbour, Coastal and Offshore Engineering, Hohai UniversityChina (中国)zq431@hhu.edu.cnH.

]Curvature Effects on the Electromagnetic Force, Efficiency, and Heat Transfer of a Weak Low Profile Magneto-Hydrodynamic Blanket Propulsion System22The present study concerns the numerical assessment of the effects of longitudinal and lateral curvature of a flexible low profile magneto-hydrodynamic blanket on its thrust, performance, and heat transfer. To this end, after validating the solver with the analytical solution of the Hartman problem, negative and positive curvatures are taken into consideration in lateral and longitudinal directions on the blanket and electromagnetic and velocity fields, temperature distributions, force density fields and profiles are extracted and compared to the flat MHD blanket. It is demonstrated that negative curvatures increase the thrust force and temperature of the blanket and the reverse occurs for the positive curvatures. It is also shown that the longitudinal curvature affects the blanket thrust by -2.5% up to 5.2%, its efficiency by nearly 6% and the temperature change from -25 up to 28%. On the other hand, for the lateral curvatures, the overall thrust produced by the blanket is affected by about -6% to +6%, the efficiency is affected by -10% to 25% and temperature change is affected by -2 to 6%.12611270M.

]Investigations of Combustion Performance in LPP Combustor22A Lean Premixed Prevaporized (LPP) low-emission combustor which is applied with the combustion technology of staged lean fuel is developed. To study the cold flow dynamics and the combustion performance of the LPP combustor, both experimental tests using the Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) to quantify the flow dynamics and numerical simulation using the Fluent software are conducted respectively. To investigate the emissions of the LPP combustor, four kinds of inlet conditions (viz. 7%, 30%, 85% and 100% F∞ (Thrust Force)) were conducted using numerical simulation. Numerical results are in good agreement with the experimental data. Results show that:1) a Primary recirculation zone (PRZ), a Corner recirculation zone (CRZ) and a Lip recirculation zone (LRZ) exist in the LPP combustor, and the velocity gradients between pilot swirling flow and primary swirling flow have contributed to the exchanges of mass, momentum and energy. 2) With the decrease of thrust force, NO mass fraction, CO2 mass fraction and total pressure losses at the exit of LPP combustor fall gradually. 3) Thermal NO formation rate closely relate to the zone area where gas temperature overruns 1900K and the maximum temperature in LPP combustor. 4) The combustion performance of the LPP combustor proposed in this paper is very well, and through comparative analysis with four kins of typical gas tubine combustor, the NO emission is very low and is equivalent to the CAEP6 43.87%.12711282Y.

]Particle and Gas Flow Modeling of Wall-impinging Diesel Spray under Ultra-high Fuel Injection Pressures22Advanced models of spray breakup and droplet collision are implemented in OpenFOAM code for comparing the flat-wall impinging and free fuel sprays under ultra-high pressure direct injection diesel engines. The non-evaporating spray and ambient gas flow characteristics are analyzed by a combination of Eulerian and Lagrangian methods for continuous and dispersed phase, respectively. Various injection pressures and two different impinging distances are used. Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations are solved using standard k-ε turbulence model. Computational domain and grid size are determined based on a mesh study. Numerical results are validated by published experimental data for free and wall-impinging sprays. The robustness and accuracy of the proposed scheme are confirmed by comparing the main characteristics of spray and surrounding gas against published experimental data. To accomplish this, spray shape, penetration and gas velocity vectors are compared with experimental data and insightful understanding of the spray characteristics are provided. In comparison with free spray, tip penetration has been limited in impinging sprays. Turbulent flow in impinging sprays leads to more induced air motion. Also, impinging spray leads to more pushed-out gas velocity. The obtained results indicate that the numerical findings are generally in good agreement with experimental data in case of ultra-high injection pressures and micro-hole injectors.12831291P.GhadimiDepartment of Marine Technology, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, IranDepartment of Marine Technology, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, IranIran(ایران)parviz.ghadimi@gmail.comM.YousefifardAmirkabir University of TechnologyAmirkabir University of Technologypaysyousefifard@aut.ac.irH.NowruziDepartment of Maritime Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Tehran, IranDepartment of Maritime Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Tehran, Iranpaysh.nowruzi@aut.ac.irWall-impinging spray Free diesel spray Ultra-high injection pressure OpenFOAM.[Ashgriz, N., W.

]Instability of MHD Flow in the Duct with Electrically Perfectly Conducting Walls22The stability problem of conducting fluid flow in a square duct with perfectly conducting walls is investigated. A homogeneous and constant static magnetic field is applied along the vertical direction of the flow. Nonmodal linear stability analysis is performed on this problem for the first time and the effect of the imposed magnetic field is also taken into account. The amplification and distribution of primary optimal perturbations are obtained by solving iteratively the direct and adjoint governing equations with respect of perturbations. Four modes of perturbations with different symmetries in the space are investigated. Computational results show that, the MHD duct flow is stable at either small or large Hartmann number, but unstable at moderate one. The primary optimal perturbations are in the form of streamwise vortices, which are located inside the thin sidewall layers parallel to the magnetic field. The size of the vortices is decreased with the growing of Hartmann number Ha, meanwhile the amplification of the perturbations is reduced due to the magnetic damping effect. The Hartmann layer perpendicular to the magnetic field seems to be irrelevant to the stability of the MHD duct flow. The most unstable perturbation is in the form of Mode I, which having co-rotating vortices at opposite sidewalls and the vortices tend to enhance each other. 12931304S.DongDepartment of Power Engineering, North China Electric Power University, Baoding 071003, ChinaDepartment of Power Engineering, North China Electric Power University, Baoding 071003, ChinaChina (中国)shuai.dong@ncepu.edu.cnL.

]Synthetic Separation Control Using Vortex Generator and Slot Jet in a High Load Compressor Cascade22The compressor cascade performance is significantly restricted by the secondary flow mainly presented as the trailing edge separation and corner stall. This paper develops a synthetic flow control approach in a high turning cascade using the vortex generator and slot jet approach. Numerical simulations were conducted to assess the flow control benefits and illustrate the flow control mechanisms. Four configurations, the baseline, the two indi-vidual approaches and the synthetic approach, were simulated to compare the separation control effects. The simulations show that all the three configurations achieve considerable improvements of the cascade perfor-mance and the cascade sensitivity to incidence angle is greatly decreased. The synthetic approach improves the most among them which is almost the superposition of the two individual ones. In the synthetic approach, the trailing vortex induced by the vortex generator suppresses the end wall cross flow and deflects the passage vor-tex, and then prevents the production of corner stall; at the same time, the slot jet speeds up the trailing edge separation caused by the cascade high camber. Owing to the combination of the two aspects, the synthetic ap-proach restricts the developments of secondary flow and vortices in the cascade, and improves the outflow uni-formity. The synthetic approach nicely utilizes the advantages of the two individual approach while avoids the shortages by the complementation, so it can achieve more powerful flow control effects. At the end, vortices models are established to illustrate the secondary flow structure and the flow control mechanisms.13051318J.HuSchool of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering, Air Force Engineering UniversitySchool of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering, Air Force Engineering UniversityChina (中国)mr_hu_bluesky@163.comR.Wangrugen@foxmail.comrugen@foxmail.compaysrugen@foxmail.comP.WuSchool of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering, Air Force Engineering UniversitySchool of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering, Air Force Engineering Universitypayswpg_wangyi@163.comF.LiChongqing University of Science and TechnologyChongqing University of Science and Technologypayslif.cc@qq.comCompressor cascade Flow control High load Vortex generator Slot jet Synthetic separation con-trol[Akcayoz, E., H.

]Optimization of a Diver Propulsion Vehicle Hydrodynamics Parameter and its’ Shape Improvement by CFD Method for Improving Underwater Speed Record22The hydrodynamic shape of high speed diver propulsion vehicle (DPV) is very important to its performance. One of the basic optimization steps is minimizing DPV drag force to reduce power required. In the present paper, the research has been started by optimization process with a basic design and it would be gradually improved to achieve favorable hydrodynamic characteristics according to diver size and his required volume. The main target is minimizing lift and drag force as objective function. Moreover, this optimization scenario is applicable and it has been followed on the real DPV prototype. The prototype has been constructed and tested in towing tank for results validation. The 3D geometry of a real diver has been created by image processing and software modeling. According to this model the first basic geometry had been designed and then it has been exported to CFD code for steady-state computational analysis. The SST-Kω turbulence model has been selected in the solution to compute hydrodynamic forces. So the position of propulsion system and the shape of vehicle have been improved by repetition process. Output results show that the drag values will be significantly reduced with shape improvement about 51 percent in design speed. 13191328M.

]Numerical Simulation with a DES Approach for a High-Speed Train Subjected to the Crosswind22A Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) method based on the SST k-ω turbulence model was used to investigate the instantaneous and time-averaged flow characteristics around the train with a slender body and high Reynolds number subjected to strong crosswinds. The evolution trends of multi-scale coherent vortex structures in the leeward side were studied. These pressure oscillation characteristics of monitoring points on the train surfaces were discussed. Time-averaged pressure and aerodynamic loads on each part of the train were analyzed inhere. Also, the overturning moment coefficients were compared with the experimental data. The results show that the flow fields around the train present significant unsteady characteristics. Lots of vortex structures with different intensities, spatial geometrical scales, accompanied by a time change, appear in the leeward side of the train, in the wake of the tail car and below the bottom of the train. The oscillation characteristics of the flow field around the train directly affect the pressure change on the train surfaces, thereby affecting the aerodynamic loads of the train. The loads of each car fluctuate around some certain mean values, while the positive peak values can be higher than the mean ones by up to 34%. The load contributions of different parts to the total of the train are also obtained. According to it, to improve the crosswind stability of the high-speed train, much more attention should be paid on the aerodynamic shape design of the streamlined head and cross section. In addition, this work shows that the DES approach can give a better prediction of vortex structures in the wake compared with the RANS solution.13291342J.ZhangKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Education, Central South UniversityKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Education, Central South UniversityChina (中国)jie_csu@csu.edu.cnK.HeKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of EducationKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Educationpays405316005@qq.comX.XiongKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of EducationKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Educationpaysxhxiong@csu.edu.cnJ.WangKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha 410075, ChinaKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha 410075, Chinapayswangjiabin@csu.edu.cnG.GaoKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha 410075, ChinaKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track of Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha 410075, Chinapaysgjgao@csu.edu.cnHigh-speed train Load contribution ratio Vortex structure DES Crosswind.[Baker, C.

A preliminary design (one-dimensional analysis) study was conducted at first, based on which three-dimensional modeling and optimization were subsequently applied to the design of the centripetal-flow fan. The aerodynamic performance of the designed fan and its operating characteristics in different working conditions were assessed by means of numerical simulations. Our results suggest that isentropic efficiency and pressure ratio of the centripetal-flow fan at design operating conditions can reach 81.14% and 1.0833, respectively, which satisfy the requirements for fans in commercial and industrial applications. From the fan performance curves, it is found that as the mass flow rate increases, the efficiency of the fan operating at the designed rotational speed first increases and then decreases. There exists an optimal mass flow rate which leads to the maximum efficiency of the fan. Similarly, the fan pressure ratio first increases as the mass flow rate increases, attains a maximum value and then decreases as the mass flow rate further increases. At off-design rotational speeds, although the fan characteristic curves show the same tendency as those observed at the design condition. Moreover, the fan characteristic curve becomes steeper with an increased rotational speed, which means that the variations of isentropic efficiency and pressure ratio with change in mass flow rate become much greater. The results of our present study confirm the feasibility of using the centripetal-flow fan for various industrial applications.13431353Y.SongSchool of Energy and Power Engineering, University of Shanghai for Science and TechnologySchool of Energy and Power Engineering, University of Shanghai for Science and Technologypays373212917@qq.comX.SugSchool of Energy and Power Engineering, University of Shanghai for Science and TechnologySchool of Energy and Power Engineering, University of Shanghai for Science and Technologypaysxjsun@usst.edu.cnD.HuangSchool of Energy and Power Engineering, University of Shanghai for Science and TechnologySchool of Energy and Power Engineering, University of Shanghai for Science and TechnologyChina (中国)596753633@qq.comZ.ZhengAerospace Engineering Department, University of Kansas, LawrenceAerospace Engineering Department, University of Kansas, Lawrencepayszzheng@ku.eduCentripetal-flow fan Design performance characteristics Numerical simulation Feasibility.

]Hydrodynamic Modelling of Coal-Biomass Mixture in a Bubbling Fluidized Bed Reactor22Biomass is a renewable and sustainable energy source. Co-firing of biomass with coal will increase the renewable energy share by decreasing the coal consumption. In the present paper, hydrodynamic behaviour of coal and biomass mixture is investigated in a fluidized bed reactor. A Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) model is developed and the hydrodynamic behaviour of gas and solid is investigated in detail. The CFD model is based on Eulerian-Eulerian multiphase modelling approach where the solid phase properties are obtained by applying the Kinetic Theory of Granular Flow (KTGF). Six different weight percentages of coal and biomass (100:0, 95:5, 90:10, 80:20, 70:30 and 50:50) are used for the present study. The hydrodynamic behaviour is analyzed in terms of the important hydrodynamic parameters like bed pressure drop, bed expansion ratio, particle volume fraction distribution and velocity distribution. The numerical model is also validated by comparing some of the numerical results with our own experimental data generated in a laboratory scale bubbling fluidized bed reactor. 13551362M.Verma1Energy Research and Technology, CSIR-Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute1Energy Research and Technology, CSIR-Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institutepaysmunna.nitp@gmail.comC.Loha1Energy Research and Technology, CSIR-Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute1Energy Research and Technology, CSIR-Central Mechanical Engineering Research InstituteINDIAchanchal.loha@gmail.comA.

]On the Mechanism of Drag Reduction in Fully-Developed Turbulent Channel Flow with a Streamwise Micro-featured Superhydrophobic Wall22The superhydrophobic drag reduction changes the structures of turbulent flow. However, the underlying mechanism is not clear. The aim of this study is to determine the alternations of turbulent flow due to applying a streamwise micro-featured superhydrophobic wall. Large eddy simulations are performed to explore the effect of micro-features on near-wall behaviors. The results indicate that the outward motion of the lifted low-speed streaks is restricted to the lower wall layers, and the region of maximum production of streamwise vorticities is shifted toward the micro-featured wall. The quadrant analysis of Reynolds stress shows that there is a stronger increase in outward motion of high-speed fluid and inward motion of low-speed fluid than ejection and sweep.13631374M.Saadat-BakhshMechanical Engineering, Iran University of Science and TechnologyMechanical Engineering, Iran University of Science and TechnologyIran(ایران)a.saadatbakhsh@gmail.comN.

]Aerodynamic Study of Two Opposing Moving Trains in a Tunnel Based on Different Nose Contours22It is well known that the train nose shape has significant influence on the aerodynamic characteristics. This study explores the influence of four kinds of nose shapes (fusiform, flat-broad, bulge-broad, ellipsoidal) on the aerodynamic performance of two opposing high-speed trains passing by each other through a tunnel at 250 km/h. The method of three dimensional, compressible, unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations and RNG k-ε double equation turbulence model was carried out to simulate the whole process of two trains passing by each other inside a tunnel. Then the pressure variations on tunnel wall and train surface are compared with previous full-scale test to validate the numerical method adopted in this paper. The assessment characteristics, such as transient pressure and aerodynamic loading, are analyzed to investigate the influence of nose shape on these assessment parameters. It is revealed that aerodynamic performance of trains which have longitudinal nose profile line B (fusiform, flat-broad shape) is relatively better when passing by each other in a tunnel. The results can be used as a guideline for high-speed train nose shape design.13751386W.

]Modified Model for Binary Nanofluid Convection with Initial Constant Nanoparticle Volume Fraction22A modified model considering effects of density as well as conductivity of nanoparticles is used to investigate the instability of a binary nanofluid layer. It is assumed that volume fraction of nanoparticles is small and remains constant at the initial state which leads to very interesting and useful results. The perturbed equations so found are analyzed using normal modes and weighted residual method. It is found that oscillatory motions are not possible and instability is invariably through stationary mode. After solving the problem analytically, numerical solutions are found for metallic (aluminium, copper, silver, iron) and non-metallic (alumina, silica, titanium oxide, copper oxide) nanoparticles using the software Mathematica. The effects of size of nanoparticles, difference in solute concentration, volume fraction of nanoparticles, difference in temperature, conductivity and density of nanoparticles are studied on the onset of convection. The increase in density of nanoparticles destabilizes the fluid layer system where as increase in conductivity stabilizes the same. Lower density of aluminium makes it more stable than other nanoparticles in spite of having its lower conductivity. Metals are largely more stable than non-metals. 13871395J.SharmaU.I.E.T., Panjab University, ChandigarhU.I.E.T., Panjab University, ChandigarhINDIAjyoti.maths@gmail.comU.GuptaDr. S. S.

]Prediction of Cavitation Performance of Radial Flow Pumps22Cavitation is a major problem in pump design and operation because this phenomenon may lead to various types of instabilities, including hydraulic performance loss and catastrophic damage to the pump material caused by bubble collapse. Therefore, it is critical to predict the cavitation performance of the pump in the design phase itself. The motivation of this study is to develop a systematic methodology to calculate the cavitation performance of radial flow pumps. In the first step of the present work, a cavitating nozzle flow case for which the bubble dynamic behavior is accurately resolved in literature is studied numerically. Subsequently, the capabilities of three cavitation models, implemented in the commercial code Fluent, are evaluated for three radial flow pumps designed at specific speeds ns = 10.4, 22.4, and 34.4. The numerical results are validated with global quantities based on net positive suction head (NPSH) measurements. The results led to the determination of reasonably accurate NPSH values for the defined range of specific speeds. 13971408M.Kaya1R and D Department, Standart Pompa A.S., Istanbul1R and D Department, Standart Pompa A.S., IstanbulTurkey (Türkiye)kayamehmet12346@itu.edu.trE.AyderMechanical Engineering Department, Istanbul Technical UniversityMechanical Engineering Department, Istanbul Technical Universitypaysaydere@itu.edu.trNPSH Cavitation Pump Bubble dynamics.[Balasubramanian, R., E.

]Determination of the Modes and the Conditions of Ultrasonic Spraying Providing Specified Productivity and Dispersed Characteristics of the Aerosol22For the spraying of liquids and the coating process at high-tech productions the method of ultrasonic spraying in a layer having a number of advantages such as low energy capacity, high productivity, fine-dispersity of obtained aerosol and the absence of spraying agent, is used. However the main problem of ultrasonic spraying application is the absence of the reliable dependences of spraying characteristics (drop diameter and spraying productivity) on the liquid properties (viscosity, surface tension), modes (frequency and vibration amplitude of spraying surface) and conditions (the thickness of liquid layer) of the ultrasonic action. In order to determine these dependences it is proposed the model based on cavitation and wave theory of the drop formation, which allows obtain for the first time theoretical ground of the existence of optimum thickness layer, at which free surface of liquid is acted upon by maximum energy providing drop detachment. The model analysis lets show advisability of the application of vibration frequency of more than 100 kHz for the drop generation with the size of 10 μm and less with the productivity of no less than 0.2 ml/s. Obtained results are proved by the experimental studies, which allow their use for the formulation of the technical requirements to the ultrasonic sprayers at the realization of different technological processes.

The fluid in the infinitely long cylinder is initially at rest and at t = 0+, due to shear, the fluid starts to oscillate longitudinally. We have solved the fractional model with the tool of Laplace and finite Hankel transformations. The solutions are in series form and are written in generalized G-function to avoid the entanglement. In limiting cases, the solutions of ordinary Oldroyd-B fluid, Maxwell fluid with fractional as well as ordinary and Newtonian fluid are derived. Finally, behavior of different physical parameters on fluid is illustrated by graphs.14211426N.RazaDepartment of Mathematics, University of the Punjab, Quaid-e-Azam CampusDepartment of Mathematics, University of the Punjab, Quaid-e-Azam CampusPakistan (پاکستان)raza_nauman@yahoo.comE.

]Massline Visualization of Double-Diffusive Natural Convection inside a Cavity Filled with Nanofluid Subjected to Heat Flux and Transverse Magnetic Field22In the present work, massline visualization technique as an innovative method is utilized to deepen our insights into the problem of double-diffusive natural convection of nanofluids. The effects of inclination angle and strength of the external magnetic field on one side and heat flux coefficient on the other side on the masslines, isoconcentrations, isotherms, heat and mass transfer are fairly studied and discussed. The governing equations together with appropriate boundary conditions are solved numerically using a finite difference method in a square lid-drive cavity filled with Cu-water nanofluid. Four pertinent parameters are studied these; the orientation angle of the magnetic field (λ = 0◦ − 270◦), Hartman number (Ha = 0 − 100), heat flux coefficient (ε= 1 − 200), and nanoparticle volume fraction (ϕ = 0 − 10%). Results indicate that the orientation and strength of applied magnetic field can be considered as the key parameters in controlling double-diffusive natural convection. It is also found that the existence of metallic nanoparticles in the presence of magnetic field can play different roles in the heat and mass transfer variations. Meanwhile, high amount of heat flux injected through the cavity has an aiding effect on the convective current of mass within the cavity. Results also indicate that nanofluid has relatively smaller massline circulation loops than pure fluid.14271440O.GhaffarpasandDepartment of Physics, University of IsfahanDepartment of Physics, University of IsfahanIran(ایران)o.ghaffarpasand@gmail.comDouble-diffusive natural convection Nanofluid Heat flux Massline visualization technique Heat and mass transfer.[Al-Amiri A., K.

]Dynamic Simulation in Guide Vane Opening Process of a Pump-Turbine in Pump Mode22During the process of switching conditions in pump-turbine, unstable ﬂow would take place and seriously impact on the stability and safety. This paper deals with the guide vanes’ moving process in pump mode through unsteady numerical simulations. Dynamic mesh methodology is used for simulations in which GVO (Guide Vane Opening) from 9mm to 26mm. Simulation results approve that, there are many complex vortex structures and ﬂow blockages phenomena under small GVO condition. Through the mathematical method of Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Short-Time Fourier Transform (STFT), the dominant pressure ﬂuctuation frequencies are from runner blade passing frequency (BPF) and its harmonic frequency, as well as some other low frequencies are from unsteady ﬂow states. Furthermore, the ﬂow states are more unstable and complex under small guide vanes moving process. Compared with ﬁxed GVO position, the ﬂow states are more unstable and complex under guide vanes moving process, while the amplitude of main frequencies becomes higher.14411449L.HanSchool of Energy Science and Engineering, Harbin Institute of TechnologySchool of Energy Science and Engineering, Harbin Institute of TechnologyFrancehanleilyon@hotmail.comH.

]Aerodynamically Efficient Rotor Design for Hovering Agricultural Unmanned Helicopter22Unmanned aerial vehicles, especially agricultural unmanned helicopters (AUH), are nowadays extensively used in precision agriculture. AUHs have recently become responsible for spraying fertilizers and pesticides for crop yields. The strong downward rotating flow produced by the main rotor helps very uniform crop spraying which determines that how important is the aerodynamics of rotor blade in AUH. In this work, the aerodynamic performance of AUH rotor blades is evaluated and an efficient blade is obtained by numerically investigating the influence of design variables on the aerodynamics of rotor blades. The design variables consist of airfoil shape, pitch settings, and twist angle. The limited power available in hover and aerodynamic requirements (lift and drag) are the aerodynamic constraints. This analysis only considers the hovering flight condition at a constant rotational speed. The aerodynamically efficient rotor blade which is based on gradually varying and linearly twisted airfoil shapes, show a significant improvement in hover performance with relatively uniform blade loading. After testing, the optimum blade can be used as the main rotor in the AUH to perform precision farming.14611474B.

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) experiments were performed to measure different flow regimes within the single jet and the dual jets configurations in crossflow. Based on the experimental data acquired, a series of velocity profiles were extracted from the flow field. In each profile, a velocity threshold was given to distinguish the regions sheltered and the regions not sheltered by the planar jet. The boundary of these regions was accordingly recognized as the leeward edge. Furthermore, fitting of the edge was carried out using a second order polynomial so as to enable a mathematical expression of the leeward edge. An application of the proposed approach towards the flow induced noise reduction using a planar jet is also discussed in this paper. In addition, the PIV frame assembly algorithm used in this study is reported.14751486K.ZhaoKey Laboratory of Aerodynamic Noise Control, China Aerodynamics Research and Development Center, Mianyang, 621000, ChinaKey Laboratory of Aerodynamic Noise Control, China Aerodynamics Research and Development Center, Mianyang, 621000, ChinaIRELAND461199700@qq.comX.YangCollege of Aerospace Science and Engineering, National University of Defence TechnologyCollege of Aerospace Science and Engineering, National University of Defence Technologypaysnkyangxixiang@163.comPatrickOkoloDepartment of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Trinity College, University of Dublin, Dublin 2, Dublin, IrelandDepartment of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Trinity College, University of Dublin, Dublin 2, Dublin, Irelandpaysokolop@tcd.ieZ.WuCollege of Aerospace Science and Engineering, National University of Defence TechnologyCollege of Aerospace Science and Engineering, National University of Defence Technologypayszeping90315@126.comW.ZhangCollege of Aerospace Science and Engineering, National University of Defence TechnologyCollege of Aerospace Science and Engineering, National University of Defence Technologypayszwh_kjs@163.comG.

The flow unsteadiness is caused by the oscillation of the outer tube around its axis as well as by a periodic pressure gradient. Unlike some previous works, the gap width of the annular tube is used as the typical length scale which is physically meaningful to a greater extent. In order to employ the method of moment, a finite difference implicit scheme has been adopted to solve the Aris integral moment equations arising from the unsteady convective diffusion equation for all time periods. The individual and combined effects of different velocity components resulting from steady and time-dependent parts of the driving forces are examined and they are identified based on their functionality. In any flow situation, wall factor is found to have a larger contribution in velocity as well as in dispersion compared to the pressure factor. The behaviour of dispersion coefficient with the variation of radius ratio, bulk flow reaction parameter, and frequency parameters have been examined. Dispersion coefficient is found to diminish with the increase of the reaction-rate in the bulk flow, whereas the effect of the radius ratio on the dispersion coefficient is fixed by the form of the velocity distribution. The axial distributions of mean concentration are approximated using Hermite polynomial representation from the first four central moments for a range of different reaction-rate parameters. It has been found that, irrespective of the flow situation, the peak of the concentration distribution decreases with the increase in reaction rate parameter.14871500A.
