Compressible starting jet: pinch-off and vortex ring–trailing jet interaction

Peña Fernández, Juan José ; Sesterhenn, Jörn (2017)

The dominant feature of the compressible starting jet is the interaction between the emerging vortex ring and the trailing jet. There are two types of interaction: the shock–shear layer–vortex interaction and the shear layer–vortex interaction. The former is clearly not present in the incompressible case, since there are no shocks. The shear layer–vortex interaction has been reported in the lit...

Statistics of fully turbulent impinging jets

Wilke, Robert ; Sesterhenn, Jörn (2017)

Direct numerical simulations (DNS) of subsonic and supersonic impinging jets with Reynolds numbers of 3300 and 8000 are carried out to analyse their statistical properties with respect to heat transfer. The Reynolds number range is at low or moderate values in terms of practical applications, but very high regarding the technical possibilities of DNS. A Reynolds number of 8000 is technically re...

Experimental and numerical results of active flow control on a highly loaded stator cascade

Hecklau, Martin ; Gmelin, C. ; Nitsche, W. ; Thiele, F. ; Huppertz, A. ; Swoboda, M. (2011)

This article presents experimental and numerical results for a compressor cascade with active flow control. Steady and pulsed blowing has been used to control the secondary flow and separation characteristics of a highly loaded controlled diffusion airfoil. Investigations were performed at the design incidence for blowing ratios from approximately 0.7 to 3.0 (jet-to-inlet velocity) and a Reynol...

The dynamics of volcanic jets

Cigala, V. ; Kueppers, U. ; Peña Fernández, J. J. ; Taddeucci, J. ; Sesterhenn, J. ; Dingwell, D. B. (2017-07-24)

Pyroclast ejection during explosive volcanic eruptions occurs under highly dynamic conditions involving great variations in flux, particle sizes, and velocities. This variability must be a direct consequence of complex interactions between physical and chemical parameters inside the volcanic plumbing system. The boundary conditions of such phenomena cannot be fully characterized via field obser...

Contact electrification in aerosolized monodispersed silica microspheres quantified using laser based velocimetry

Alois, Stefano ; Iversen, Jens Jacob ; Merrison, Jonathan ; Sesterhenn, Jörn (2017-04)

The contact electrification of aerosolized micro particles has been studied using a novel technique involving laser velocimetry. This has allowed the simultaneous determination of size and electrical charge of individual silica microspheres (in the range 1 – 8 µm). Interestingly the particles interacting with the injector tube have been seen to become electrified with a relatively narrow range ...

The compressible starting jet

Peña Fernández, Juan José (2018)

Jets are involved in numerous industrial applications and in nature: fuel injection, jet engines, volcanic jets, air-bag devices, but also water jet cutters, jet packs (rocket belts), jet injectors for vaccination, astrophysical jets, etc. Continuous jets have been already studied in the incompressible and compressible case for almost a century, focused mainly on the characterization of the flu...

Simulation und Analyse einer Verdichterkaskade mit aktiver Strömungsbeeinflussung

Gmelin, Christoph (2018)

Axiale Verdichter erreichen heutzutage sehr hohe Gesamtdruckverhältnisse, wozu eine hohe Anzahl von Verdichterstufen notwendig ist. Bei Flugtriebwerken stellt das Einsparen ganzer Stufen eine Möglichkeit dar, gleichzeitig das Gewicht und den Bauraum zu reduzieren. Für stationäre Gasturbinen wird der Teillastbetrieb mit steigendem Anteil an regenerativen Energien immer bedeutsamer. Beide Forderu...

Numerical simulation of a regional train in cross-wind

Eichinger, Sándor ; Sima, Mikael ; Thiele, Frank (2015)

In this work numerical investigations of regional trains were carried out studying the prediction accuracy of the aerodynamic load in cross-wind assessment of rail vehicles. The main focus is on 30° yaw angle. Two domain setups, one representing the wind tunnel setup and another more generic one, were investigated and validated against available measurements comparing load coefficients. Importa...
