Parabolic partial differential equations (PDEs) are used as models of transport-reaction phenomena in a variety of different industrial chemical and materials engineering processes, and can yield precise descriptions of process variables with complex temporal and spatially dependent system...
Consider an open control volume consisting of a porous medium submerged in a surrounding ambient fluid of density ρ_a. The top and bottom of the control volume allow ambient fluid to enter the porous medium. Saline fluid of density ρ_s>ρ_a is supplied at a constant rate of Q_o near the top of the...
Thunderstorms have the potential to produce severe weather and can result in significant financial and human losses. The province of Alberta is one of Canada’s most active thunderstorm regions, with the record for insured damage due to hail. Therefore, it is crucial that thunderstorm forecasts be...
Comparison of the open‐closed separatrix in a global magnetospheric simulation with observations: The role of the ring currentDownload
Kabin, Konstantin, Lu, J. Y., Rankin, Robert, Gombosi, Tamas I., Watt, Clare E. J., Ridley, Aaron J., Toth, Gabor, Milan, Steve E., Zhang, Jichun, Rae, I. Johnathan, Clauer, C. Robert, De Zeeuw, Darren L., Fenrich, Frances
The development of global magnetospheric models, such as Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF), which can accurately reproduce and track space weather processes has high practical utility. We present an interval on 5 June 1998, where the location of the polar cap boundary, or open-closed field...
Decline and partial rebound of the Labrador Current 1993-2004: Monitoring ocean currents from altimetric and conductivity-temperature-depth dataDownload
Monitoring and understanding of Labrador Current variability is important because it is intimately linked to the meridional overturning circulation and the marine ecosystem off northeast North America. Nevertheless, knowledge of its decadal variability is inadequate because of scarcity of current...
A 90 mm diameter methanol pool fire was investigated experimentally and analytically. Aiming for well-defined experiments and understanding the physics of the involved transport processes, the liquid-side boundary conditions including the pool’s bottom temperature the wall thermal conductivity...
In this thesis we study MT from giant and subgiant donors in binary stars. We develop a MT simulation framework based on the MESA set of stellar libraries, which is suitable to study extremely high MT rates and predict the stability of MT. We find that the MT from giant donors is much more stable...
NUMERICAL AND SEMI-EMPIRICAL MODELING OF PARTICLES UNDERGOING PHASE CHANGE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF CONVECTIONDownload
This work is devoted to the development and validation of subgrid models describing heat and mass transfer between the bulk flow of gas/liquid and a moving particle undergoing phase change under the influence of free/mixed/forced convection. Such kind of submodels plays the role of ’scale...
Numerical Simulations of Anelastic and Boussinesq Rotating Convection with Radial Entropy Gradient Boundary ConditionsDownload
Observations from the gas giants Jupiter or Saturn allow for researchers to construct geophysical fluid dynamical numerical models in an attempt to replicate the observed features. Most models aim at replicating the zonal jets and the eddies observed on these gas giants to understand how they are...
Origin of the interhemispheric potential mismatch of merging cells for interplanetary magnetic field BY‐dominated periodsDownload
When the dawn-to-dusk component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF B-Y) is dominant, ionospheric convection exhibits a basic two-cell pattern with significant dawn-dusk and interhemispheric asymmetries. For IMF B-Y > 0 the duskside merging cell potential in the Northern Hemisphere is much...
