In modern cosmology, many efforts have been put to detect primordial B-mode of cosmic microwave background polarization from the gravitational waves generated during inflation. Considering the foreground dust contamination of microwave polarization maps, it is essential to obtain a precise...
The subject of interest for this thesis is the detachment of a turbulent boundary layer. Engineers are interested in techniques that delay or suppress flow separation entirely because the performance of many fluidic devices, such as airfoil and diffuser, are hindered by this flow phenomenon. The...
The rise in motor vehicle ownership has become not only an environmental issue, but also a public health threat as pollutants emitted negatively affect human health (Deng et al., 2017). One such pollutant is particulate matter, which has been regulated by a variety of countries because it...
This work contains investigations relevant for the study of catalytic chemical reactors using the detailed microkinetics approach, with the intent of improving the prediction of the product distribution. The study is comprised of two main topics. The first one consists of an investigation of...
It has been well known that turbulent motions are ubiquitous in the interstellar medium. These motions are very important in governing various astrophysical processes like star formation. Both observational and numerical studies are important to understand turbulent motions, and a gap between...
There are numerous examples of dispersed turbulent two-phase flows in engineering and environmental processes. In particular, dispersed solid-liquid flows, also known as slurry flows, have many industrial applications such as transportation of coal, ore, and oil sands. Slurry transportation...
The turbulent motion of particles and their interactions with the turbulence of the carrier phase make a complex system. Hence understanding the physics and consequently developing a well-stablished model becomes very difficult. With insufficient computational power to numerically resolve all the...
Superhydrophobic surfaces are proven to be capable of reducing the skin friction in laminar and turbulent flows. These surfaces consist of micro/nano-scale hydrophobic roughness features which make the surface render a non-wetting property due to the entrainment of air pockets between the solid...
The processes responsible for generating the mean azimuthal atmospheric winds observed on Jupiter and Saturn, which feature large prograde equatorial jets and jets of alternating direction at higher latitudes, have yet to be conclusively resolved. Results from three dimensional numerical models...
The current work presents the results of an experimental study on the effects of submergence on the performance of a submerged hydraulic jump with baffle blocks downstream of a sluice gate. A wide range of Froude numbers, submergence factors, and block sizes, locations and arrangements were...
