Chaotic mixing and transport in wavy Taylor–Couette flow

Alp Akonur, Richard M. Lueptow
2002 Physica D : Non-linear phenomena  
The results show how mixing is enhanced with increasing rotating Reynolds number as a consequence of increased stretching and folding that occurs in meridional, latitudinal, and circumferential surfaces  ...  The axial particle transport increases with the rotating Reynolds number as a consequence of stretching and folding within the vortices and the axial transport between vortices, both related to the waviness  ...  In order to validate the particle tracking code, particles were tracked in a mathematically generated velocity field that was mapped on to a three-dimensional polar grid with spacing similar to the experimental  ...

The flow-induced vibration of an elliptical cross-section at varying angles of attack

J.S. Leontini, M.D. Griffith, D. Lo Jacono, J. Sheridan
2018 Journal of Fluids and Structures  
This aspect ratio is large enough so that the deformation from a circular cylinder is obvious, but not so large that the geometry is not related to the cylinder.  ...  However, for large angles, where the body is far from symmetric with respect to the wake centreline, the flow can be markedly different with distinct asymmetric modes, including one which is period-doubled  ...  Thompson for providing the spectral-element code used for the simulations.  ...

On the Mechanism of Large Amplitude Flapping of Inverted Foil in a Uniform Flow [article]

P. S. Gurugubelli, R. K. Jaiman
2017 arXiv   pre-print
An elastic foil interacting with a uniform flow with its trailing edge clamped, also known as the inverted foil, exhibits a wide range of complex self-induced flapping regimes such as large amplitude flapping  ...  Due to the absence of vortex shedding process in the low-Re regime, the inverted foil no longer exhibits the periodic flapping.  ...  The LAF of inverted foil with a splitter closely resemble the VIV of an elastically mounted circular cylinder.  ...

Shape from depth discontinuities under orthographic projection

Douglas Lanman, Daniel Cabrini Hauagge, Gabriel Taubin
2009 2009 IEEE 12th International Conference on Computer Vision Workshops, ICCV Workshops  
We present a new method for reconstructing the 3-D surface of an opaque object from the motion of its depth discontinuities, when viewed under orthographic projection as the object undergoes rigid rotation  ...  A novel shape completion scheme is introduced to fill in gaps in the recovered surface, which would otherwise be impossible to reconstruct from the motion of the depth discontinuities alone.  ...  For this model, consider the case of a cylinder of radius r separated from the rotation axis by a distance R (with its symmetry axis parallel to the rotation axis).  ...

A. P. G. van Heel, M. A. Hulsen, B. H. A. A. van den Brule
1999 Journal of rheology  
Synopsis The Doi-Edwards model is simulated in startup of two-dimensional complex flow. The flow geometry is that of a cylinder confined between two parallel plates.  ...  The second method is a new method which is introduced in this paper. We refer to this approach as the deformation field method. Theoretically the methods are equivalent.  ...  The Doi-Edwards model does not lead to a closed-form equation for the stress tensor.  ...
