(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2003-02)Effect of rotation on nonlinear solutal convection during protein cystallization is modelled and studied computationally under both normal and microgravity conditions. The axis of the externally imposed rotation, which is ...
(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2003-05)Effect of rotation on surface tension gradient driven flow, which is also known as Marangoni convective flow, during protein crystallization is modelled and studied computationally under microgravity conditions, where the ...
(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2002-10)A direct numerical simulation (DNS) is used to study the effect of a freestream isotropic turbulent flow on the drag and lift forces on a spherical particle. The particle diameter is about 1.5 to 10 times the Kolmogorov ...
Measurement of instantaneous Eulerian acceleration fields by particle-image accelerometry: Methods and accuracy (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-12)Acceleration is a fundamental quantity in fluid mechanics because it reflects the sum of all forces (pressure and viscous) present within the flow. However, measurements of acceleration have been difficult to achieve ...
(Illinois State Water Survey, 1973)
(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2003-06)The topic of this review article is about some aspect of flow during alloy solidification and the corresponding research development that has been accomplished in the recent years to determine the features of such flows, ...
Structure and statistical analysis of the microphysical properties of the comma-head region of cold-season midlatitude cyclones (2015-01-21)This dissertation presents analyses of the microphysical structure and processes producing precipitation in the comma-head region of cold-season continental cyclones, using data collected by the W-band Wyoming Cloud Radar ...
Toward assessing the effects of aerosols on deep convection: a numerical study using the WRF-Chemistry model (2010-05-19)As the formative agents of cloud droplets, aerosols play an undeniably important role in the development of clouds and precipitation. Few meteorological models have been developed or adapted to simulate aerosols and their ...
