In this dissertation we focus on numerical models of rotating anelastic convection, in particular the entropy boundary condition, with application to the giant planets. The first chapter details atmospheric features of giant planets and the numerical formulation of anelastic convection. The...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
