20191250370On the Low Frequency Pressure Fluctuation in a 3/4 Open Jet Automotive Wind Tunnel22In the present research, a possible generation mechanism of low-frequency buffeting phenomenon based on a 1:15 open jet automotive wind tunnel was investigated. Evolution of vortex structures and pressure field in the plenum chamber have been visualized and analyzed by Large-eddy simulation (LES). It is shown that the low frequency pressure fluctuation is caused by the large-scale structures and their interaction. Multiple proper orthogonal decomposition was adopted to analyze the flow field in the plenum chamber. The characteristic frequencies of the vortex-rings after pairing is the same as the dominant resonance of buffeting at this wind velocity.13591369Q.JiaShanghai Automotive Wind Tunnel Center, Tongji University, Shanghai, 201804, ChinaShanghai Automotive Wind Tunnel Center, Tongji University, Shanghai, 201804, Chinapaysqing.jia@sawtc.comY.ZhuShanghai Automotive Wind Tunnel Center, Tongji University, Shanghai, 201804, ChinaShanghai Automotive Wind Tunnel Center, Tongji University, Shanghai, 201804, Chinapayszyyllk0727@gmail.comD.BaoShanghai Automotive Wind Tunnel Center, Tongji University, Shanghai, 201804, ChinaShanghai Automotive Wind Tunnel Center, Tongji University, Shanghai, 201804, Chinapays1532838@tongji.edu.cnM.

]A Study of the Taylor-Couette Flow with Finned Surface Rotation22In this study, the Taylor-Couette flow was disturbed by incorporating annular fins over the inner rotating surface. The finned surface had three parameters: height, width, and length between fins. In this work, seven different fin configurations, in which only the fin height varied, were examined and compared using experimental and numerical techniques. We found that annular fins disturbed the flow behavior by reducing the smooth critical Taylor number (Ta=57.18), but more important, we noticed a vortex enlargement induced by the incorporation of a relatively modest perturbation (b´<0.5) and this change remained in a wider range (0.57<T<14.18). On the other hand, it was identified the appearance of smaller secondary vortices just over the fins, it is as a result of an increment in fin height. The relevance of this finding lies on the field of micro-mixing processes. 13711382M.Carlos ÁlvarezInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, MexicoInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, Mexicopaysmalvarezs@iingen.unam.mxW.VicenteInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, MexicoInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, Mexicopayswvicenter@iingen.unam.mxF.SolorioInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, MexicoInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, Mexicopaysfjso@unam.mxE.MancillaInstitute of Materials Research, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, MexicoInstitute of Materials Research, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, Mexicopaysfaermara@hotmail.comM.SalinasInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, MexicoInstitute of Engineering, UNAM, Coyoacan 04510, Mexico City, Mexicopaysmsalinasv@iingen.unam.mxV.

]Aerodynamic Shape Design of Pantograph Network Monitoring Device on High-Speed Trains22The pantograph monitoring device on high-speed trains bears not only its own strength but also the aerodynamic load applied by the air flow when the train is running at high speed. A well designed shape of the pantograph monitoring device on high-speed trains reduces the loads and pressure fluctuations acting on it, and therefore, increases its function stability and life cycle. In this paper, we present an aerodynamic shape design method for such device. Firstly, an efficient and reliable numerical simulation approach is established for the evaluation of the aerodynamic loads acting on the device. According to the numerical computations, a basic shape for the monitoring device is formed, with which the minimum functional space of the device is reserved. Then, the corners of the basic shape are smoothed out with three types of continuous transitions. By comparing the numerical results of the three smoothed shapes, we obtain an optimal aerodynamic shape for the pantograph monitoring device. The design method is not limited to the monitoring device studied in this manuscript. The aerodynamic shape of other small functional devices on high-speed trains can also be generated or optimized with the method presented herein.13831394P.JiKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track, Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan,410075, ChinaKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track, Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan,410075, Chinapayse.rv@live.cnF.WuKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track, Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan,410075, ChinaKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track, Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan,410075, Chinapaysgszxcfd_wf@csu.edu.cnB.QianKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track, Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan,410075, ChinaKey Laboratory of Traffic Safety on Track, Ministry of Education, School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan,410075, Chinapaysbosenqian@163.comL.YanCRRC Qingdao Sifang CO., LTD, Qingdao, Shandong, 266111, ChinaCRRC Qingdao Sifang CO., LTD, Qingdao, Shandong, 266111, Chinapays168162131@qq.comPantograph monitoring device Aerodynamic performance Numerical simulation Shape design.[Branke, J., K.

]The Use of Dam Break Model to Simulate Tsunami Run-up and Scouring Around a Vertical Cylinder22This research paper deals with the use of a dam break system to generate a surge model to study tsunami run-up, run-down and scouring around a vertical cylinder. The dam break system was provided with one or two gates to store water at a predefined depth; the water could then be quickly released by opening the gates to create a tsunami surge that runs up on land. In addition, numerical simulations of dam break surges resulting from various lengths of reservoirs were conducted to obtain more findings for further analysis regarding the characteristics of the dam break surges. A vertical cylinder model was installed on the beach at 6 meter downstream of the main gate to study the scour caused by the tsunami surge. The bed material was fine sand with a 0.19 mm diameter. The results were compared with existing experimental results. The comparison indicated that the dam break surge can be used to simulate tsunami surges by adjusting the reservoir length, the reservoir depth and the water depth downstream of the gate. The ratio of the difference between the upstream and downstream water depth on one side to the length of the reservoir on the other affect the run-up height and duration. Thus, this ratio should be considered when simulating tsunami based on dam break systems. Although different in magnitude, the shape of both the surge mareogram and the velocity time history of the tsunami surge generated using dam break system was comparable with the tsunami surge induced by a solitary wave generated using a long flume. For the relatively large cylinder located at the bore location, the separation flow was strongly directed to the wall which produced significantly unsymmetrical scour result.13951406.KuswandiDepartment of Civil Engineering Faculty of Civil Engineering and Planning, Institut Teknologi Medan, North Sumatra, Indonesia Department of Civil Engineering Faculty of Civil Engineering and Planning, Institut Teknologi Medan, North Sumatra, Indonesia payskuswandi@itm.ac.idR.TriatmadjaDepartment of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Gadjah Mada, IndonesiaDepartment of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesiapaysradianta@ugm.ac.idDam break Run up Run down Tsunami Scour Simulation.[Aureli, F., S.

]Effects of Two-Way Turbulence Interaction on the Evaporating Fuel Sprays22This article discusses the importance of using different turbulence modulation models in simulation of evaporating sprays. An in-house CFD code has been modified to take into account the effect of considering turbulence modulation by standard or consistent models. These models may predict an augmentation (consistent model) or a reduction (standard model) in the turbulence kinetic energy of continuous phase. Calculations are done in a Eulerian-Lagrangian framework and the effect of injected droplets on turbulent kinetic energy and its rate of dissipation is included in the equations of the continuous phase. Results are shown to be valid by comparing them to Sandia spray A configuration experimental data. Results show that considering the effect of existing droplets in a turbulent combustion chamber can play a major role in having a more accurate CFD simulation. These models can alter the velocity field drastically when droplets are injected into the chamber with a high velocity. As a result, spray characteristics such as evaporation rate is also altered. It can be concluded that modulation models should be used in the simulation of evaporating sprays in order to attain more accurate and realistic results.14071415H.KhaleghiTarbiat Modares University, Tehran, 14115-111, IranTarbiat Modares University, Tehran, 14115-111, Iranpayskhaleghi@modares.ac.irM.AhmadiTarbiat Modares University, Tehran, 14115-111, IranTarbiat Modares University, Tehran, 14115-111, Iranpaysahmadimasoud@modares.ac.irH.Farani SaniTarbiat Modares University, Tehran, 14115-111, IranTarbiat Modares University, Tehran, 14115-111, Iranpayshoseinfarani@modares.ac.irTurbulence modulation Turbulent dispersion Evaporation rate Velocity profile alternation.[Ahmadi-Befrui, B., A.

]Experimental Study of the Effect of Displacement of Vanes Submerged at Channel Width on Distribution of Velocity and Shear Stress in a 180 Degree Bend22Shear stress is a parameter of high significance. Through knowledge of this parameter, assessment of scour or sedimentations at different points of bed is made viable. Therefore, this paper investigated alterations in shear stress along the bend, specifically around a bridge pier, under the influence of applying submerged vanes at the upstream side of the bridge pier. With the aim of modeling submerged vanes, vanes of Plexiglas with a thickness of 20% of the pier diameter, a length of 1.5 times the pier diameter, and submergence ratio of 75% were utilized. The vanes were installed at a distance equal to 5 times the pier diameter from the pier center at a distance of 40 to 60% of the channel width from the inner bank at the upstream side of the bridge pier. Acoustic-Doppler Velocity velocimeter device was utilized for measuring three-dimensional velocity components. The experiments were conducted in a 1-meter-wide flume with a degree of curvature of 180. The results of the study suggested that upon reaching the bend apex, the maximum flow turbulence rate occurred in a transverse direction in the case of installing submerged vanes at a distance of 40% of the channel width from the inner bank towards the inner wall; while in the case of installing submerged vanes at a distance of 60% of the channel width from the inner bank, it occurred towards the outer wall, and it could be observed that the maximum longitudinal and vertical components of turbulence rate increased by 16 and 5.5% respectively upon increase in the distance of submerged vanes from the inner bank. Furthermore, the values of and turbulence shear stresses at the outer bank in the case of installing the vanes at a distance of 40% of the channel width from the inner bank were smaller than those in the case of installing the submerged vanes at a distance of 60% of the channel width from the inner bank. 14171428Ch.Abdi ChooplouCivil Engineering Department, Persian Gulf University, Bushehr, 7516913817, IranCivil Engineering Department, Persian Gulf University, Bushehr, 7516913817, Iranpayschonoorabdi@yahoo.comM.VaghefiCivil Engineering Department, Persian Gulf University, Bushehr, 7516913817, IranCivil Engineering Department, Persian Gulf University, Bushehr, 7516913817, Iranpaysvaghefi@pgu.ac.irSubmerged Vanes Position of Submerged Vanes at Width Turbulence Shear Stress Turbulence Kinetic Energy The Secondary Flow Strength 180 Degree Sharp Bend.[Abad, J.

]Optimization of Synthetic Jet Position for Heat Transfer Enhancement and Temperature Uniformity of a Heated Wall in Micro-Channels22In this study, the synthetic jet position was optimized to obtain the maximum rate of heat transfer and the best state of temperature uniformity on a heated surface in micro-channels. Based on micro-channel length, several cases were simulated to investigate the effects of synthetic jet position on the heat transfer rate and temperature uniformity. After that, the synthetic jet position was optimized using the CFD results and the GMDH-MOGA optimization code. The obtained results show that the synthetic jet placement in all longitudinal positions of micro-channel increases the heat transfer rate, although the improvement of temperature uniformity of heated surface decreases at some positions as compared to the micro-channel without synthetic jet. The optimization results show that for obtaining the maximum value of heat transfer and the best state of temperature uniformity on the heated surface, the dimensionless longitudinal position of synthetic should be between 0.45 and 0.65. The maximum rate of heat transfer and the best state of temperature uniformity have been observed in the vicinity of lower and upper bounds of this range, respectively.14291437J.KhaleghiniaDepartment of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Tehran, IranDepartment of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Tehran, Iranpaysj.khaleghinia@gmail.comF.KowsarySchool of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Tehran, Tehran, IranSchool of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Tehran, Tehran, Iranpaysfkowsari@ut.ac.irC.AghanajafiDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, K.N.

]Experimental Study on the Discharge Coefficient of Bi-Swirl Coaxial Injectors22An experimental study was carried out to investigate the effects of recess length and mixture ratio on the discharge coefficient of bi-swirl coaxial injectors with inner closed-type and outer open-type swirl injectors. Ten bi-swirl coaxial injectors were classified into two groups with different recess lengths. By independently varying the mass flow rates through the inner and outer injectors, the discharge coefficients of the injectors were obtained. Single-injection cold-flow tests indicated that the discharge coefficients of both the inner and outer swirl injectors were only marginally affected by the recess length and mass flow rate. Bi-injection cold-flow tests showed that the discharge coefficients of the inner swirl injectors were also almost constant, regardless of the recess length and mixture ratio. On the other hand, those of the outer swirl injectors in the tip-mixing and internal-mixing bi-swirl coaxial injectors with long recess lengths had significantly decreased with the increase in mixture ratio. A novel empirical equation for the discharge coefficient of the outer swirl injector in the internal-mixing bi-swirl coaxial injector is suggested through a linear regression analysis of the present test data. It was found that the present empirical equation could accurately predict the experimental data.14391447K.AhnSchool of Mechanical Engineering, Chungbuk National University, 1 Chungdae-ro, Seowon-gu, Cheongju, Chungbuk 28644, KoreaSchool of Mechanical Engineering, Chungbuk National University, 1 Chungdae-ro, Seowon-gu, Cheongju, Chungbuk 28644, Koreapayskbahn@cbnu.ac.krB.

]Study on the Accuracy of RANS Modelling of the Turbulent Flow Developed in a Kaplan Turbine Operated at BEP. Part 1 - Velocity Field22This paper investigates the accuracy of Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) turbulence modelling applied to complex industrial applications. In the context of the increasing instability of the energy market, hydropower plants are frequently working at off-design parameters. Such operation conditions have a strong impact on the efficiency and life span of hydraulic turbines. Therefore, research is currently focused on improving the design and increasing the operating range of the turbines. Numerical simulations represent an accessible and cost efficient alternative to model testing. The presented test case is the Porjus U9 Kaplan turbine model operated at best efficiency point (BEP). Both steady and unsteady numerical simulations are carried out using different turbulence models: k-epsilon, RNG k-epsilon and k-omega Shear Stress Transport (SST). The curvature correction method applied to the SST turbulence model is also evaluated showing nearly no sensitivity to the different values of the production correction coefficient Cscale. The simulations are validated against measurements performed in the turbine runner and draft tube. The numerical results are in good agreement with the experimental time-dependent velocity profiles. The advantages and limitations of RANS modelling are discussed. The most accurate results were provided by the simulations using the k-epsilon and the SST-CC turbulence models but very small differences were obtained between the different tested models. The precision of the numerical simulations decreased towards the outlet of the computational domain. In a companion paper, the pressure profiles obtained numerically are investigated and compared to experimental data.14491461R.

]Study on the Accuracy of RANS Modelling of the Turbulent Flow Developed in a Kaplan Turbine Operated at BEP. Part 2 - Pressure Fluctuations22The aim of the paper is to investigate the limitations of unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations of the flow in an axial turbine. The study is focused on modelling the pressure pulsations monitored on the runner blades. The scanned blade geometry renders the meshing process more difficult. As the pressure monitor points are defined on the blade surface the simulation relies on the wall functions to capture the flow and the pressure oscillations. In addition to the classical turbulence models, a curvature correction model is evaluated aiming to better capture the rotating flow near curved, concave wall boundaries. Given the limitations of Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes models to predict pressure fluctuations, the Scale Adaptive Simulation-Shear Stress Transport (SAS-SST) turbulence model is employed as well. The considered test case is the Porjus U9, a Kaplan turbine model, for which pressure measurements are available in the rotating and stationary frames of reference. The simulations are validated against time-dependent experimental data. Despite the frequencies of the pressure fluctuations recorded on the runner blades being accurately captured, the amplitudes are considerably underestimated. All turbulence models estimate the correct mean wall pressure recovery coefficient in the upper part of the draft tube.14631473R.

]A Numerical Study of the Frontal System between the Inflow and Outflow Waters in the Persian Gulf22In this study the dynamical characteristics of the salinity front between the Persian Gulf inflow and outflow were studied using the HYCOM numerical model. This model was integrated for 5 years from the beginning of 2011 to the end of 2015and the results of 2015 were discussed. The results of the model clearly showed seasonal variations in the salinity front in which the intrusion of the salinity front extends much farther into the Persian Gulf in summer. The salinity front appears to be prone to baroclinic instability with maximum intensity in spring and summer months (with a strong density stratification), forming cyclonic eddies (saline center) and anticyclones (sweeter center), that peaks in August. Results showed that some anti-cascade processes occur in mesoscale eddy activity, in agreement with the quasi-two-dimensional turbulence behavior. Spectral analysis of salinity time series in the front showed eddies with time scales ranging from a few hours to about 3 months. The result also showed that there was a reasonable relation between mixed layer depth and the formation of mesoscale eddies, so that mesoscale eddies disappeared when the thickness of mixed layer was increased in winter. 14751486A.RahnemaniaFaculty of Natural Resources and Environment, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Tehran 1477893855, Iran Faculty of Natural Resources and Environment, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Tehran 1477893855, Iran paysa.rahnemania@srbiau.ac.irA.

]Empirical and Numerical Analysis of Aerodynamic Drag on a Typical SUV Car Model at Different Locations of Vortex Generator22The aerodynamic characteristics are concerned with the fuel consumption rate and the stability of a high speed vehicle. The current research aims at studying the aerodynamic behavior of a typical SUV vehicle model mounted with the vortex generator (VG) at various linear positions with reference to its rear roof edge. The flow field around the vehicle model was observed at different wind speed conditions. It had been determined that at the instance of lower wind speed, the VG had minimal effects of aerodynamic drag on the vehicle body. However, at the instance of higher wind speed conditions the magnitude of the drag force decreased significantly. Vehicles move at higher speeds in the highways, location of the VG varied towards the upstream of the vehicle due to early flow separation. Therefore test were conducted at different wind speeds and locations of VG. The numerical simulation conduced in this study provides flow characteristics around the vehicle model for different wind speeds. The realizable k−ε model was used to simulate and validate the empirical results in an effective manner. By using experimental data, the drag was reduced by 9.04 % at the optimized VG location. The results revealed that the induced aerodynamic drag would determine the best car shape. This paper provides a better understanding of VG positioning for enhanced flow separation control.14871496P.

]Simulation of Pigging with a Brake Unit in Hilly Gas Pipeline22Pigging is a routine operation in the oil and gas industry. In this paper, the governing equation of pig speed was combined with the gas flow equations. The transient equations of gas flow are solved by the method of characteristics (MOC). An experiment was carried out to test the proposed pigging model. The measured speed of the pig coincides with the calculated speed well. The process of a pig carrying a brake unit to pass over a hilly gas pipeline is simulated. The results indicate that the brake unit would lead to a sharp increase of the pressure on the tail of the pig, because the pig is dragged by the brake unit and thus prevented to accelerate together with the gas column in a downhill gas pipeline. This way, the pig speed in a downhill gas pipeline is much lower by using a brake unit, but the speed of pig still can hardly be controlled in the desired range. Furthermore, response surface methodology (RSM) is used to study the maximum speed of pig with/without a brake unit in downhill gas pipeline. Based on the results of the RSM simulations, two equations are present to predict the maximum speed of a pig in a downhill gas pipeline.14971509H.HeSchool of Mechatronic Engineering, Southwest Petroleum University, Chengdu, Sichuan 610500, ChinaSchool of Mechatronic Engineering, Southwest Petroleum University, Chengdu, Sichuan 610500, Chinapays346299006@qq.comZ.LiangSchool of Mechatronic Engineering, Southwest Petroleum University, Chengdu, Sichuan 610500, ChinaSchool of Mechatronic Engineering, Southwest Petroleum University, Chengdu, Sichuan 610500, Chinapaysliangz_2242@126.comMethod of characteristics Gas pipe Hammer effect Runge-Kutta method Response surface methodology Speed control.[Ayati, A.

]Instability and Transition in a Laminar Separation Bubble22In this numerical study, a laminar separation bubble is simulated by imposition of suction to create an adverse pressure gradient. The DNS elucidates the entire transition process over the separation bubble leading to turbulence. Several important conclusions are drawn from the simulations regarding the origins of transition and evolution of turbulence. Break down to turbulence, preceded by three-dimensional motions and non-linear interactions, occurs in the second half of the mean bubble length. Two topological structures of the bubble causing vortex shedding are suggested; one for the normal shedding and the other for the low frequency flapping. The normal shedding frequency can be attributed to the regular shedding of smaller vortices while shedding of large vortices formed due to coalescence of smaller vortices results in the low-frequency flapping. Due to the shedding of bigger vortices, the instantaneous reattachment point varies greatly resulting in large variation in the instantaneous bubble length. Break down of longitudinal streaks, appearing via Λ-vortices and vortex stretching mechanism, characterizes the transition process. Low values of reverse flow suggest that a convective instability is involved. The instability analysis indicates that the initial amplification of disturbances is due to T-S mechanism while the roll-up of the shear layer takes place due to Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. 15111525N.

]Numerical Simulation of Pitching Sloshing under Microgravity22In this paper, the fluid characteristics of pitching sloshing under microgravity condition are investigated. A numerical method by solving the Navier-Stokes equations to study three-dimensional (3-D) nonlinear liquid sloshing is developed with OpenFOAM, a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool. The computational method is validated against existing experimental data in rectangular tank under ordinary gravitational field. However under low gravity conditions, the sloshing liquid shows seemingly chaotic behavior and a considerable volume of liquid attaches on the sidewall due to the effect of surface tension, which is verified in simulation experiment. Besides, the nonlinear liquid behaviors in hemi-spherically bottom tank are firstly studied in this paper. It is found that the wave evolution becomes divergent with the decrease of gravitational acceleration. The natural frequency reaches a constant magnitude quickly with the increase of liquid height and then increases again until the filling level exceeds 70%. Meanwhile, the liquid dynamics of forced pitching sloshing under resonant and off-resonant condition are demonstrated respectively. The numerical techniques for 3-D simulation are hopeful to provide valuable guidance for efficient liquid management in space.15271537W.

]Influence of Heat and Mass Transfer on Free Convection of Micropolar Fluid between Vertical Concentric Cylinders22Natural convective flow of a micropolar ﬂuid is examined analytically in order to see the effect of heat and mass transfer between two concentric vertical cylinders of infinite length. The governing equations of model in non-dimensional form corresponding to the temperature, velocity and microrotational velocity, using the Boussinesq approximation and Eringen equation with suitable boundary conditions are expressed in terms of cylindrical coordinate system and then their exact solutions are obtained. The influence of the non-dimensional physical parameters such as the material and vortex viscosity parameters on the velocity, microrotational velocity is evaluated by showing on the graphs while the values of skin friction in non-dimensional form at the outer and inner surfaces of inner and outer cylinders have been presented in the tabular form.15391545A.

]An Experimental Investigation of a Passively Flapping Foil in Energy Harvesting Mode22Energy extraction through flapping foils is a new concept in the domain of renewable energy, especially when the system is fully driven by incoming free-stream flow, a phenomenon known as flow-induced vibration. To investigate this concept, a water tunnel test-rig was designed and fabricated, where a flat plate foil made from plexiglass performs two-degrees of freedom pitch and plunge motion under the influence of incoming water flow. For this study a power-takeoff system was not introduced, hence energy harvesting performance was evaluated through real-time force and motion measurements with the help of sensors. The energy harvester performed self-sustained flapping motions when the free-stream velocity reached a threshold value, known as the cut-off velocity, which for this test-rig is 0.40 m/s (without sensors) and 0.50 m/s (with sensors). To support these self-sustained flapping motions, inertial mass blocks were placed to provide the necessary inertia especially when the flat plate foil performed the pitching or stroke reversal action. Different inertial mass units (mib = 0.45, 0.90 & 1.35 kg/block) were tested to analyze their effect on the flat plate foil kinematics and its energy harvesting performance. Other parameters such as pitching amplitude (θo = 30°, 43° & 60°) and free-stream velocity (U∞ = 0.57 m/s, 0.65 m/s and 0.78 m/s) were varied at fixed pivot location (xp = 0.65 chords (c)) to augment the varying inertial mass unit study. In the first section at fixed mib of 0.45 kg/block and xp = 0.65c from leading edge, energy harvesting performance (C̅p & η) was observed to increase with increase in pitching amplitude, while it degraded as the free-stream velocity increased. Best energy harvesting performance of η = 52.5% and C̅p = 1.124 was achieved with mib = 0.45 kg/block, θo = 60° and U∞ = 0.57 m/s. Varying mib also had a considerable effect on the energy harvesting performance of the test-rig, where the mib = 0.90 kg/block case showed a 36.5% and 21.13% decline in performance compared to the mib = 0.45 and 1.35 kg/block cases, respectively at θo = 60° and U∞ = 0.57 m/s.

]Aerodynamic Forces Acting on Ahmed-Type Vehicles under Fluctuating Headwind Conditions22Aerodynamic forces of Ahmed-type road vehicles subjected to atmospheric fluctuation were studied in an advanced wind tunnel with programmable settings enabling the generation of pulsating wind speeds. The experiments were performed with a time-averaged airflow speed of approximately 13 m/s, with the fluctuating speed ranging from 2.58 to 2.90 m/s, and periods ranging from 1.5 to 5.0 s. The results of the time-dependent drag and lift forces acting on the vehicle were compared with those under steady wind conditions. Further, the influence of the rear slant angle of the Ahmed model on the forces was addressed. The fluctuation in wind speed showed a greater effect on the aerodynamic forces than predicted. The amplitude of the drag force under the pulsating wind became larger in a vehicle having a shape that experienced a large drag force under steady wind conditions. It is concluded that even under fluctuating wind conditions, there exists a critical angle of 30 at which the vehicle experiences either high or low fluid forces. 15631574M.SumidaFaculty of Engineering, Kindai University, Higashi-Hiroshima, 739-2116, JapanFaculty of Engineering, Kindai University, Higashi-Hiroshima, 739-2116, Japanpayssumida7_2@air.ocn.ne.jpK.HayakawaGraduate School of Systems Engineering, Kindai University, Higashi-Hiroshima, 739-2116, JapanGraduate School of Systems Engineering, Kindai University, Higashi-Hiroshima, 739-2116, Japanpays1733850002y@hiro.kindai.ac.jpRoad vehicle Fluctuating wind Aerodynamic characteristics Ahmed body Wind-tunnel experiment.

]Effect of Knudsen Number, Lid Velocity and Velocity Ratio on Flow Features of Single and Double Lid Driven Cavities22Effects of Knudsen number, lid velocity and velocity ratio are investigated on the flow features of single lid driven cavity with an aspect ratio of one and double lid driven cavity of aspect ratio two. Knudsen numbers studied are 0.01(early slip regime), 0.1 (slip regime) and 1 (transitional regime). Lid velocities investigated are 100 m/s, 200 m/s and 500 m/s. The velocity ratios explored are 1 and -1. Knudsen number was found to have a huge impact on the flow rigidity. Lid velocity tends to shift the central vortex to the top left of the cavity for a cavity with aspect ratio of one and shifts the upper vortex to the top left of the cavity for a cavity with aspect ratio of two. Lid velocity does not affect the slip to a great extent on the lid. Changing the velocity ratio from 1 to -1 leads to the reversal of the relative vorticity in the top and bottom half of the cavity.15751583S.MukherjeeDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, IndiaDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Indiapaysswarnava_mukherjee@yahoo.co.inV.ShahabiHigh Performance Computing (HPC) Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, 91775-1111, Mashhad, IranHigh Performance Computing (HPC) Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, 91775-1111, Mashhad, Iranpaysv.shahabi69@gmail.comR.GowthamDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, IndiaDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Indiapaysrajjgowtham32@gmail.comK.

]Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulation on Particulate Distribution in Gyro Casting for the Manufacture of Al/SiC Particulate Metal Matrix Composite22The enhanced specific strength of SiC Particulate Metal Matrix Composites (PMMC) has been the major contributing factor which helps to find applications in the aerospace and automotive industries. Uniform distribution of the particulates in PMMC controls the attainment of better mechanical properties. The most accepted method for producing such a composite is stir casting in which the homogeneity of particulate reinforcement is a significant challenge. This research work proposes a new method for mixing the particulate reinforcement with the liquid and semi-solid aluminium matrix to ensure a uniform mix of the particulates using a gyro shaker. Gyro shaker is a dual rotation mixer commonly used for mixing high viscous fluids. It rotates about two mutually perpendicular axes which help in thoroughly mixing of the ingredients. Developed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation model of the mixing device in finding the mixing performance while mixing SiC particulates with glycerol. The results of the simulation were also validated by experimentation. Analogue fluid simulation of gyro casting was carried out using water and glycerol/water mixture which are having a closer value of viscosity as that of liquid aluminium and semi-solid aluminium. The mixing time obtained in the water system at gyration speeds of 29.63 rpm, 58.18 rpm, 72.73 rpm and 87.27 rpm was 61.84 sec, 43.44 sec, 26.85 sec and 27.24 sec respectively. The mixing time obtained in glycerol/water system at gyration speeds of 58.18 rpm, 87.27 rpm, 116.36 rpm and 145.45 rpm was 26.34 sec, 15.97 sec, 9.8 sec and 6.26 sec respectively. The distribution of the SiC particulates obtained from simulation was compared with stir casting simulations. The homogeneous distribution of particulates was observed in the gyro casting simulation. 15851597P.

]Large Eddy Simulation of Compressible Parallel Jet Flow and Comparison of Four Subgrid-Scale Models22Large eddy simulations of a three-dimensional (3D) compressible parallel jet flow at Mach number of 0.9 and Reynolds number 2000 are carried out. Four subgrid-scale (SGS) models, namely, the standard Smagorinsky model (SM), the selective mixed scale model (SMSM), the coherent-structure Smagorinsky model (CSM) and the coherent-structure kinetic-energy model (CKM) are employed, respectively, and compared. The purpose of the study is to compare the SGS models and to find their suitability of predicting the flow transition in the potential core of the jet, and so as to provide a reference for selecting SGS models in simulating compressible jet flows, which is a kind of proto-type flow in fluid dynamics and aeroacoustics. A finite difference code with fourth-order spatial and very low storage third-order explicit Runge-Kutta temporal schemes is introduced and employed for calculation. The code, which was previously designed for simulating shock/boundary-layer interactions and had been widely validated in simulating a variety of compressible flows, is rewritten and changed into parallelized using the OpenMP protocol so that it can be run on memory-shared multi-core workstations. The computational domain size and the index of LES resolution quality are checked to validate the simulations. Detailed comparisons of the four SGS models are carried out. The results of averaged flow-field including the velocity profiles and the developments of shear-layer, the instantaneous vortical flows and the viscous dissipation, the predicted turbulence statistics and the balances of momentum equation are studied and compared. The results show that although the normalized developed velocity profiles are well predicted by the four SGS models, the length of the potential core and the development of the shear-layer reveal that the SM has excessive SGS viscosity and is therefore too dissipative to correctly predict the flow transition and shear-layer expansion. The model smears small vortical scales and lowers down the effective Reynolds number of the flow because of the over-predicted SGS viscosity and dissipation. The turbulence statistics and the balances of momentum equation have also confirmed the excessive dissipation of the SM. The CKM is also found to over-predict the SGS viscosity. Compared with these two models, the SMSM and the CSM have performed well in predicting both the averaged and the instantaneous flow-fields of the compressible jet. And they are localized models which are computationally efficient and easy for coding. Therefore, the SMSM and the CSM are recommended for the LES of the compressible Jet.15991614Q.LiuSchool of Mechanical and Power Engineering, East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai 200237, P.

]Investigation of Parameters Affecting Axial Load in an End Suction Centrifugal Pump by Numerical Analysis22The total force produced in the axial direction on a pump is called axial load and is caused by the pressure difference between the front and rear of the impeller and the hydrostatic force in the suction direction. In a centrifugal pump, 3D computer-aided analysis programs are used to design and reduce R&D and manufacturing costs. In this study, parameters affecting axial load of the centrifugal pump with a single suction and closed impeller were investigated by using the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method. In this context, the flow rate and the some physical properties such as the back gap of the impeller, wear ring and balancing holes, of the centrifugal pump were investigated to determine how much affected the axial load. The results showed that the wear ring and the balancing holes give rise to effective results on the axial load, while the back gap of the impeller does not affect the large extent. With the design changes made with these parameterizations, the axial force was reduced by up to 60%, whereas the efficiency was decreased by 5%. The loss of efficiency due to this decrease in axial force is negligible. However, higher efficiency values were also found at a different point from the working point where the axial load is lowest.16151627H.PehlivanDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Sakarya University, Serdivan, Sakarya, 54187, TurkeyDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Sakarya University, Serdivan, Sakarya, 54187, Turkeypayspehlivan@sakarya.edu.trZ.ParlakDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Sakarya University, Serdivan, Sakarya, 54187, TurkeyDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Sakarya University, Serdivan, Sakarya, 54187, Turkeypayszparlak@sakarya.edu.trCentrifugal pump Thrust load Axial load Balancing hole Wear ring Computational fluid dynamics.[Baun, D.

]Kinematics of a Cylindrical Particle at Low Reynolds Numbers in Asymmetrical Conditions22This paper concerns the hydrodynamic interactions on a cylindrical particle in non-dilute regime at low Reynolds numbers. The particle moves between two parallel walls with its axis parallel to the boundaries. A numerical finite-volume procedure is implemented and a generalized resistance matrix is built by means of the superposition principle. Three problems are solved: the settling of the particle, the transport of a neutrally and of a non-neutrally buoyant particle in a Poiseuille flow. Concerning sedimentation, the settling velocity is maximal off the symmetry plane and decreases when the confinement increases. The particle rotates in the direction opposite to that of contact rolling. The particle induces a high pressure zone in the front and a low pressure zone in the back, the difference of which is maximal in the symmetry plane. For a neutrally-buoyant particle, the hydrodynamic interactions lead to a velocity lag between the particle and the undisturbed flow. The magnitude of the velocity lag increases with confinement and eccentricity. The angular velocity and pressure difference are opposite to the previous case. For a non-neutrally buoyant particle, three situations are found depending on a dimensionless parameter similar to an inverse Shields number. For its extreme low and high values, the particle is respectively either carried by the flow or settles against it whatever its position. For intermediate values, the particle either settles close to the walls or is dragged by the flow close to the symmetry plane. Similar results are obtained for the angular velocity and the pressure difference. All these results question the assumption usually met in particulate transport in which the kinematics of the particle is often supposed to be that of the flow. 16291640S.ChampmartinLAMPA, Arts et Métiers ParisTech, Angers, France LAMPA, Arts et Métiers ParisTech, Angers, France paysstephane.champmartin@ensam.euA.AmbariLAMPA, Arts et Métiers ParisTech, Angers, France LAMPA, Arts et Métiers ParisTech, Angers, France paysabdelhak.ambari@ensam.euA.Ben RichouFaculty of Sciences and Technics, Sultan Moulay Slimane University, Beni-Mellal, MoroccoFaculty of Sciences and Technics, Sultan Moulay Slimane University, Beni-Mellal, Moroccopaysbenricho@fstbm.ac.maHydrodynamic interactions Resistance matrix Particle transportation Confined solid particle.[Ambari, A., B.

]Determination of the Drag Reduction Mechanism Associated with the Pneumatic Regulation of Slurry Pipeline Transport using a Numerical Method22The technological parameters associated with the pneumatic regulation of slurry pipeline transport have been explored to reduce the energy consumption of the transport system and prolong the transport distance in dredging cases. In this study, a numerical method is employed to discretize and solve the established three-dimensional physical model, which consists of a dual Eulerian model of multiphase flow, the standard k-ε model of turbulence, and a homogeneous flow model for slurry. The simulated pressure drop values are consistent with the experimental results for transport with gas injection. In addition, the influence of the gas phase on the flow characteristics in the pipeline is analyzed, and the mechanism of the drag reduction is revealed. The presence of the gas film reduces the wall shear stress between the slurry and the pipe wall, which is the root cause of the drag reduction. Under the control of pneumatic regulation, the flow state tends to stabilize in the fully developed section of the pipe, and injection does not interfere with transport.16411650Q.

]In-Cylinder Aero-Thermal Simulation of Compression Ignition Engine: Using a Layering Meshing Approach22Three-dimensional flow simulations of the full cycle for four-valve direct-injection Diesel engine have been carried out with different meshes. The aim of the present study is to establish an extensive CFD investigation of in-cylinder aero-thermal flow of a direct-injection Diesel engine. The ICE-CFD solver is used to examine the unsteady behavior of a realistic engine configuration. Moreover, a layering approach and dynamic mesh model are adopted to generate the grid. The predicted radial velocity and swirl ratio for four different meshes are compared with Laser Doppler Velocimetry measurements and with numerical results from the literature. The comparison shows that the obtained results with the fine mesh present a good agreement with the experimental measurements along the compression phase and at the start of the expansion phase. In addition, these results are more accurate than the predicted results reported in the literature. Furthermore, CFD analysis is presented for the whole cylinder volume with regard to several parameters such as velocity field, swirling, tumble flow, pressure and temperature distributions. These results prove that in-cylinder CFD simulation gives reasonably accurate results that enable enhanced knowledge of the aero-thermal flow of full engine cycle. 16511665O.MoussaLaboratory of Electro-Mechanic Systems, National Engineering School of Sfax, University of Sfax, P.O.

]Experimental Investigation of Flow and Coherent Properties of Excited Non-Circular Liquid Jets22Non-circular jet is identified as an efficient passive flow-control technique that attracts many research topics. The existence of twine-vortexes is the main reason for dissimilarity between circular and non-circular jets. Which also influences the production of droplets and satellites as well as the jet instability. This investigation presents instability analysis of liquid-gas interface as an applicable conception in free-jet flows. We experiment different jet geometries within a gas ambient in order to study their hydrodynamic behavior. These studies give an appropriate perception about contributing forces that play essential roles in fluid instability. We focus on varying viscosity and surface tension as our excitation techniques. These methods are vital to examine the key properties of non-circular jets such as breakup and decay length, axis-switching wavelength as well as produced droplets and satellites characteristics. First, instabilities of charged liquid jets are investigated by considering the interaction between electric and inertial forces. Also, the viscosity effect was studied for its interaction with the inertial and surface tension forces. In each case, liquid jet in-stability for various nozzle geometries over a specific range of jet velocity is examined. The obtained results illustrate that the geometry of nozzle has an important effect on jet instability. In addition, by increment of We number, the breakup and decay length as well as the axis-switching wavelength are raising. However, by the rise of twin-vortex number, the breakup length increases but the decay length and axis-switching wavelength decrease.16671681M.BabayanMechanical Engineering Department, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, IranMechanical Engineering Department, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iranpaysmorsal.babaian@gmail.comP.Tabatabaee-HosseiniMechanical Engineering Department, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, IranMechanical Engineering Department, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iranpayspejman.tabatabaei@gmail.comN.Esmaeilzadeh KandjaniMechanical Engineering Department, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, IranMechanical Engineering Department, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iranpaysneg.esm@gmail.comS.

]Effect of Different S AC Based Nanoparticles Types on the Reflow Soldering Process of Miniaturized Component using Discrete Phase Model Simulation22The wetting formation and nanoparticles dispersion on adding nanoparticles to the lead free solder Sn-3.0Ag-0.5Cu (SAC305) is methodically investigated using Discrete Phase Model (DPM) simulation and applied on a 01005 capacitor component. Different types of nanoparticles, namely titanium dioxide (TiO2), nickle oxide (NiO) and Iron (III) oxide (Fe2O3) with varying weight percentages, 0.01wt%, 0.05wt% and 0.15wt% that is doped in SAC305 are used. The study of two-way interactions between multiphase volume of fluid (VOF) and discrete phase model (DPM) shows excellent capability in tracking the dispersed nanoparticles immersed in the wetted molten solder. In this study, real reflow profile temperature setup will be used to mimic the conventional reflow process. Based on the findings, the fillet height managed to achieve the minimum required height set by IPC standards. As the concentration of the nanoparticles doped in the molten solder increases, higher time is required for the wetting process. In general, the doped NiO nanoparticles at 0.05wt% has the lowest wetting time compared to other cases. The study of the instantaneous nanoparticles trajectory tracking was also conducted on a 3D model and 2D cross sectional view to identify the exact movement of the particles. Additionally, it was also observed that the velocity and pressure distribution increases as the weight percentage of the nanoparticles increases.16831696M. A.Fatah M.

]Evaluation of Cubic-Spline Based Gas Kinetic Method for Simulating Compressible Turbulence22In this work, we implement and examine a new flow reconstruction methodology using cubic-splines for inter-polations in the gas kinetic method (GKM). We compare this version of GKM with the existing WENO based interpolation method. The comparisons are made in terms of accuracy and computational speed. We find that at low to intermediate range of Mach number (Mt < 0.7), cubic-splines based interpolations are superior in terms of reduced numerical dissipation and higher computational speed (7x faster) as compared to the WENO interpolation method.16971706N.ParasharDepartment of Applied Mechanics, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi 110016, IndiaDepartment of Applied Mechanics, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi 110016, Indiapaysnishantparashar14@gmail.comB.SrinivasanDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai 600036, IndiaDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai 600036, Indiapaysbalaji.srinivasan@gmail.comS.

]Design and Numerical Simulation of a Micro-Gas Turbine Combustor22A cannular combustor with a 100-KW thermal power was designed with a swirler, primary holes, dilution holes, and cooling holes based on an original gas turbine of a practical application. Further, the combustion process in this combustor was numerically simulated by using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A methane-reduced chemical mechanism was applied to CFD to simulate the combustion process. The combustion performance, product concentrations, and flow field were analyzed. Experimental data of airflow distribution obtained in previous study were applied in the design process. The present work was reported to verify that the experimental data can be regarded as a guide and optimization basis in the aerodynamic design process. Additionally, the consistency of numerical results and design data indicates that the design in this paper could satisfy the design requirements.17071718P.ZhangAero-engine Thermal Environment and Structure Key Laboratory of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing 210016, ChinaAero-engine Thermal Environment and Structure Key Laboratory of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing 210016, Chinapaysnuaa_zhangping@163.comY.

]Experimental and Numerical Studies of Secondary Injection in Nozzle Divergence for Thrust Augmentation22Thrust augmentation in rocket engines using secondary injection in the diverging part of a nozzle is an innovative extension of after burners. This technique finds application in single stage to orbit propulsion devices, where the nozzle has to work at varying ambient pressures. Experimental and numerical studies have been conducted with varying cross flow and injection conditions to analyse the performance augmentation in a 2D nozzle. Schlieren images and wall pressure data are obtained from the experiment. Simulations are con-ducted using a HLLC scheme based finite volume solver. A detailed description of flow physics resulting due to the introduction of sonic angled jet into expanding supersonic flow is presented. It is found that the injection angle, pressure and main flow pressure have notable influence in the performance of the nozzle.17191728G.AnugrahDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, IndiaDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, Indiapaysgokulanugrah@gmail.comP.RajaDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, IndiaDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, Indiapayspraphaukarraja@gmail.comM.DeepuDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, IndiaDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, Indiapaysdeepunss@gmail.comR.SadanandanDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, IndiaDepartment of Aerospace Engineering; Indian Institute of Space Science Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-695547, Indiapaysrsiistaero@gmail.comRocket nozzles Thrust augmentation HLLC scheme Finite volume method.[Aso, S., M.
