Background

Time evolving jets are technologically important in industry and nature. Examples include diesel injectors, sprays of various kinds and coughing/sneezing for airborne disease spreading. They are also an important tool for understanding turbulence on a fundamental level and to evaluate applicability and accuracy of turbulence models.


Proposed projects

The projects are practical research oriented, but have immediate application for turbulence theory and in particular turbulence modeling, which is widely used in industry. From this project, you will gain a unique in-depth understanding of the physics of turbulence which will be of great value in virtually any industrial or academic discipline of fluid mechanics.

The project(s) can constitute 1-2 main tasks (see below) and can be conducted by 1-2 BSc or MSc students.

Analytical models of unsteady jets: Development of analytical models for unsteady jets. Concepts from 41323 Advanced Fluid Mechanics will be used such as Control volume analysis & similarity analysis of various kinds. Existing measurements can be used for testing the analysis.

Flow measurements: For example Hot-Wire or Laser Doppler Anemometry for testing dynamic models for the flow. This will include measurement of simpler statistics such as mean values and variance, but also correlations and structure functions and similar, if time allows.

Unsteady RANS simulations: To perform RANS-simulations, utilizing averaging in the rotational direction, to simulate the global time development under various changing conditions and also test dynamic models of the flow.

This project is a pre-study to a major research grant, sponsored by the European Research Council. The study will provide important information for the further design of the experiments within the project.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
