An analytical model for the identification of the threshold of stress intensity factor range for crack growth
The value of the stress intensity factor (SIF) range threshold (∆K_th ) for fatigue crack growth (FCG) depends highly on its experimental identification. The identification and application of ∆K_(th )are not well established ...
Computational and Experimental Investigations of an Omni-Flow Wind Turbine
Both numerical and experimental studies were conducted to evaluate the performance of an omni-flow wind turbine designed to provide renewable electricity on the top of urban buildings like skyscrapers. The numerical approach ...
An aerodynamic analysis of a novel small wind turbine based on impulse turbine principles
The paper presents both a numerical and an experimental approach to study the air flow characteristics of a novel small wind turbine and to predict its performance. The turbine model was generated based on impulse turbine ...
On the turbulent flow models in modelling of omni-flow wind turbine
The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has a wide application in the wind energy industry. In CFD simulations, a turbulence model plays a significantly important role in accuracy and resource cost. In this paper, a novel ...
Numerical simulation of combined mixing and separating flow in channel filled with porous media
Various flow bifurcations are investigated for two dimensional combined mixing and separating geometry. These consist of two reversed channel flows interacting through a gap in the common separating wall filled with porous ...
The Use of Pseudo-Inverse Methods in Reconstructing Loads on a Missile Structure
A missile during air carriage is subjected to high vibratory forces. These forces consequently impose high levels of stress on the attachment points to the aircraft. A repetitive application of stress causes fatigue. ...
