Uncertainty analysis of a particle tracking algorithm developed for super-resolution particle image velocimetry
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a powerful technique to measure the velocity at many points in a flow simultaneously by performing correlation analysis on images of particles being transported by the flow. These images ...
Confinement effects in shallow water jets
The effects of vertical confinement on a neutrally-buoyant turbulent round jet discharging from a circular nozzle into quiescent shallow water were investigated. The focus was on identifying changes in the mean flow, ...
The transient motion of a solid sphere between parallel walls
This thesis describes an investigation of the velocity field in a fluid around a solid sphere undergoing transient motion parallel to, and midway between, two plane walls. Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) was used to ...
Fundamental studies of the wake structure for surface-mounted finite-height cylinders and prisms
Surface-mounted finite-height circular cylinders and square prisms can be found in many industrial and engineering applications. The local flow fields around these bluff bodies are not yet well understood due to lack of ...
Velocity field measurements around Taylor bubbles rising in stagnant and upward moving liquids
Gas-liquid, two-phase flow is encountered in a wide variety of industrial equipment. A few examples are steam generators, condensers, oil and gas pipelines, and various components of nuclear reactors. Slug flow is one of ...
