Strained turbulence and low-diffusivity turbulent mixing using high performance computing
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-07-28)
In this thesis, turbulent flows are studied using the method of direct numerical simulation (DNS), whereby exact governing equations are computed without modeling. Beginning with isotropic turbulence and turbulent mixing ...
Dynamics of turbulent premixed flames in acoustic fields
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-13)
This thesis describes computational and theoretical studies of fundamental physical processes that influence the heat-release response of turbulent premixed flames to acoustic forcing. Attached turbulent flames, as found ...
Pressure velocity correlation in reacting turbulent flows
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1982)
Experimental study of two-dimensional turbulent wall jet development with and without longitudinal free stream pressure gradient.
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1971-06)
Studies of turbulence structure using well-resolved simulations with and without effects of a magnetic field
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-12-20)
This thesis presents results from a large-scale computational study motivated to advance understanding of turbulence structure in isotropic turbulence as well as in magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence at low magnetic ...
Steady laminar and turbulent flow through vascular stenosis models
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1977-08)
A Refined Potential Theory for the Incompressible Unsteady Subcritical-Reynolds number Flows on Canonical Bluff Bodies
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-11-19)
The three main approaches to exploring fluid dynamics are actual experiments, numerical simulations, and theoretical solutions. In classical potential theory, the steady inviscid incompressible flow over a body can be ...
Large Eddy Simulation of a High Aspect Ratio Combustor
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-11-20)
The present research investigates the details of mixture preparation and combustion in a two-stroke, small-scale research engine with a numerical methodology based on large eddy simulation (LES) technique. A major motivation ...
Turbulence generated pressure fluctuations in a class of interior flows
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1983-08)
Analysis of pressure gradient-velocity correlation in turbulent, premixed flames
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1984-08)
