Adjoint analysis for receptivity prediction
Physical knowledge of the laminar-turbulent transition process, prediction of the transition location, as well as the ability to control transition are essential in many engineering applications. However, control of the ...
Sequential function approximation of the radiative transfer equation
Heat transfer in a radiatively participating medium involves higher coupling than is typical for pure conduction and/or convection problems. Consequently, standard discretizing techniques such as partitioning regions of a ...
High resolution numerical study of a liquid bridge Marangoni flow with applied axial magnetic field for low Prandtl number fluids
The Full Zone model of the thermocapillary (Marangoni) flow in a liquid bridge with an axial magnetic field, measured by the Hartmann number Ha, is studied using a Chebyshev spectral method for low Prandtl number fluids. ...
Dynamics of deformed droplets: Thermophysical property measurement using acoustic levitation
A general theory for the dynamics of aspherical droplets useful to interpret frequency spectra more accurately for thermophysical property measurements was developed. The oscillations of a non-spherical droplet oscillating ...
The Lorentz force and temperature distribution in a longitudinal electromagnetically levitated sample
Electromagnetic levitation, which can provide rapid heating and melting, homogeneity of melt and minimal specimen contamination, is an important branch of containerless processing. The longitudinal electromagnetic levitator ...
