The Structure of the Blue Whirl: A Soot-Free Reacting Vortex Phenomenon
Recent experiments have led to the discovery of the blue whirl, a small, stable flame that evolves from a fire whirl, and burns typically sooty hydrocarbons without producing soot. The distinct physical structure of the ...
Experimental Studies on Droplet Deformation in Hyperbolic Converging Channels
Using solid fillers to make composite materials in an additive manufacturing process has been extensively studied but there is no research on incorporating immiscible liquids in the process. To study this, a unique die was ...
Damage Precursor Based Structural Health Monitoring and Prognostic Framework Using Dynamic Bayesian Network
Structural health monitoring (SHM), as an essential tool to ensure the health integrity of aging structures, mostly focus on monitoring conventional observable damage markers such as fatigue crack size. However, degradation ...
Development of a new Stretchable and Screen Printable Conductive Ink
Stretchable conductive ink is a key enabler for stretchable electronics. This thesis research focuses on the development of a new stretchable and screen printable conductive ink. After print and cure, this ink would be ...
DEVELOPMENT OF A SUITE OF VERIFICATION TESTS FOR THE CFD FIRE MODEL FIREFOAM
Several benchmark cases are propelled to perform the verification and validation (V&V) of FireFOAM, a LES solver based on OpenFOAM. The Lamb-Oseen vortex with co-flow is used to verify several temporal and spatial schemes ...
Validation of Residence Stress Distribution Methodology using 1-D Computer Simulations
Residence Stress Distribution (RSD) Methodology was implemented as a tool to quantify the stress history (%BU) experienced by the polymer melt in the Twin Screw Extruder. This thesis focuses on using a computer simulation ...
