This study presents experimental investigations showing the mean and fluctuating velocity field of a three dimensional round jet in counter-flow located in the vicinity of a solid wall. The jet to counter-flow velocity ratios ranged from 2.5 to 25 and the jet Reynolds numbers were from 1,000 to...
Proper understanding of SAGD produced water and boiler blow down (BBD) water in particular is required to propose effective treatment processes for reuse and reduction in the quantity of disposable water. BBD contains high dissolved organic matter (DOM) and total dissolved solid (TDS). This...
Researchers in vocal acoustics have used computer simulations of single and multi-mass models of the human vocal folds to study human phonation for over 40 years. They have successfully given insight into different voice qualities and registers as well as the irregular phonation associated with...
This thesis is an experimental investigation using optical methods to study atomization of fuel injectors for IC engines using a dual fuel mixture involving diesel and gasoline blends, which is called "dieseline". Experiments were executed in a heated pressurized optical chamber which simulated...
An analytical and experimental study of boundary gravity currents propagating through a two-layer stratified ambient of finite vertical extent is presented. The theoretical discussion considers slumping, supercritical gravity currents, i.e. those that generate an interfacial disturbance whose...
Design and Construction of a Temperature Cell to Study the Effect of Temperature Rise on Particle-Drop ImpactDownload
An experimental device aimed at simulating interactions in a fluidization process was designed, built, and tested to allow future study of drop-particle impact at high temperatures. The design parameters were defined based on theoretical investigations. A feasibility study were developed using...
An Investigation of The Pressure Loss Characteristics for Highly Viscous Fluid Flow Through Narrow SlotsDownload
An investigation was conducted to study the pressure loss characteristics of a highly viscous fluid flow across a sudden contraction. The objective of this work was to have a better understanding about the fluid flow phenomena across a narrow slot, which resembles the produced oil flow through...
Environmental and Performance Analysis of a 5kW Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine in East Central AlbertaDownload
This thesis investigates the environmental and performance results of a 5kW horizontal axis wind turbine installed in east-central Alberta. Life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology was utilized to perform a comparative environmental impact study on three sizes of small wind turbines installed in...
Wear-related reliability issues, especially slurry erosion has become one of the principal concerns for the process industries that use slurry pipelines for coarse particle transport. The study and development of an appropriate wear model for slurry pipelines is, therefore, essential from the...
Particle image velocimetry/ tracking in turbulent flow over riblet surfaces with superhydrophobic coatingDownload
Riblet surfaces have been introduced as of one successful technique to reduce skin-friction. Advanced particle image velocimetry (PIV) and particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) are employed to investigate turbulent structures over riblet surfaces by several researchers including Suzuki and Kasagi...
