CFD modelling of flow/structure/seabed interactions

By Daniel Bartels • June 22nd, 2015

This is a group application from a research team that involves about 10 academic staff members and 20 PhD students from two institutions. The team is engaged in both fundamental and applied research in the areas of flow/structure interactions and hydrodynamics. The broad areas of research that the team is involved in include: 1. Hydrodynamicmore…

The Phenomenology of Unsteady Impinging Jets: Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer

The Phenomenology of Unsteady Impinging Jets: Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer

The impingement of a fluid jet on a surface is a canonical problem in fluid mechanics combining the fundamentals of free-jet development, stagnation-point flow and boundary-layer growth. It is also of immense practical importance for its engineering application in heating or cooling a target surface. Through a combination of pioneering numerical and experimental studies, thismore…

A First-Principle Investigation into Combustion Chemistry of Novel Brominated Flame Retardants.

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

Aims This submission deals with providing an atomic-based insight into chemical phenomena pertinent to the environmental transformations and combustion/fire reactions encountered in the life cycle of a group of brominated hydrocarbons; called collectively novel brominated flame retardants (NBFRs). Significance and Innovation As thermal treatment and recycling activities represents mainstream strategies for disposal of materials ladenmore…

Estimation of extreme loads on wave energy devices

Estimation of extreme loads on wave energy devices

This proposal is to support fundamental and applied research in ocean wave energy. The principle aim is to explore loading on wave energy devices in ambient and extreme conditions using computational fluid dynamics. An ARC linkage proposal is currently under review (and has received very positive rejoinder comments) to better estimate extreme loads on themore…
