Beyond arrows: energy performance of a new, naturally ventilated, double-skin facade configuration for a high-rise office building in Chicago (2010-08-31)Designers tend to rely on their intuition when designing naturally ventilated buildings without detailed analyses for the long term. It may be argued that for many standard and smaller buildings, designing for natural ...
(2011-01-21)Computational models are developed in an effort to aid in the design of process equipment for the crystallization of pharmaceutical compounds. The models focus on the combination of population balance equations and ...
Development of a hybrid heat source radiant system using an embedded concentric tube heat exchanger (2011-06-27)A hydronic radiant system is a type of the space thermal environment control system using a heated or cooled surface of building components such as floor, wall, and ceiling. The systems have been reported to have advantages ...
(2014-05-30)Single degree-of-freedom conventional acoustic liners are widely installed in jet engines to reduce internal engine noise. They work by converting acoustic energy into vorticity-bound fluctuations. Despite being widely ...
Large eddy simulations of turbulent flows on graphics processing units: application to film-cooling flows (2011-08-25)Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations can be very computationally expensive, especially for Large Eddy Simulations (LES) and Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of turbulent flows. In LES the large, energy containing ...
(2013-08-22)This thesis is a comprehensive account of my experiences implementing the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) for the purpose of simulating multiphase flows relevant to Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Center (ACRC) applications. ...
(2015-01-21)This thesis develops, validates and applies a system of computational models to investigate transient multiphase turbulent flow physics in the mold region and mold top surface behavior during continuous casting of steel ...
