Turbulence modeling of compound open-channel flows with and without vegetation on the floodplain using the Reynolds stress model

Posted by Kodiak22 2274 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://www.sciencedirect.com

A Reynolds stress model for the numerical simulation of compound open-channel flows with vegetation on the floodplain is described. The Reynolds stress model consists of various sub-models such as Speziale et al.’s model, Mellor and Herring’s model, and Rotta’s model for the pressure–strain correlation term, the turbulent diffusion term, and the dissipation term, respectively. For validation of t ... Read More

Morphology of river bed scours on a delta plain revealed by interferometric sonar

Posted by Kodiak22 2274 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://www.sciencedirect.com

High-resolution bathymetric data from an interferometric sonar were used to investigate scours within the distributary channels of the Øyeren delta plain, the largest freshwater delta in northern Europe. The data reveal a range of scours occurring at different settings, including channel confluences, bends, confinements and bedrock scours. The basal erosion surfaces of the scours are up to 23 m b ...

Dust storm from the Copper River Delta

Posted by maplover 2274 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://veimages.gsfc.nasa.gov

A massive dust storm of glacial sediments swept off the coast of Alaska on November 5, 2005; this image captured the storm as it dispersed over the Gulf of Alaska. Dust appears as a pale beige plume, standing out from both the snowy landscape and ocean water underneath it. The plume comes from the Copper River Valley. Although sandy deserts or parched plains often come to mind as the sources of d ... Read More

Three-dimensional gravity waves in a channel of variable depth

Posted by Kodiak22 2278 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://www.sciencedirect.com

We consider existence of three-dimensional gravity waves traveling along a channel of variable depth. It is well known that the long-wave small-amplitude expansion for such waves results in the stationary Korteweg–de Vries equation, coefficients of which depend on the transverse topography of the channel. This equation has a single-humped solitary wave localized in the direction of the wave propa ... Read More

IBM water cools 3D chips

Posted by eucalyptis 2279 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://www.eetimes.com

IBM's Zurich Research Laboratory on Thursday (June 5) demonstrated three-dimensional chip stacks that are cooled with water. The company expects to commercialize such stacks for its multicore servers as early as 2013. IBM plans to stack memory chips between processor cores to multiply interconnections by 100 times while reducing their feature size tenfold. To cool the stack at a rate of 180 watts ... Read More

Smart Fluid Controlled With Light

Posted by eucalyptis 2280 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://www.sciencedaily.com

Members of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering's Complex Fluids and Nanomaterials Group, lead by Assistant Professor Srinivasa Raghavan, have discovered a new class of "smart fluids" capable of switching from gel to liquid upon exposure to ultraviolet light. A paper detailing the group's findings, titled "A simple class of photorheological fluids: Surfactant solutions with vis ... Read More
