    Mechanisms controlling particle distribution in infusion molded composites2006In: Journal of reinforced plastics and composites (Print), ISSN 0731-6844, E-ISSN 1530-7964, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 59-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents results from an experimental investigation in which two grades of aluminatrihydroxide (ATH) particles are added to liquid resin and used in infusion molding experiments. Based on the results, potential key mechanisms controlling resin flow and hence also the final particle distribution are proposed. A pore doublet model is proposed to explain the seemingly random spatial distribution of particle-dense regions within the final material. These dense regions are found within flow channels, at locations where local shear strain rates are low. This suggests that they are formed as a consequence of a Bingham type of viscosity behavior observed for the suspension and/or due to filtering of particles during fiber bundle impregnation.

    Flow-induced deformation of non-crimp fabrics during composites manufacturing2009In: Proceedings of ITP2009: Interdisciplinary Transport Phenomena VI: Fluid, Thermal, Biological, Materials and Space Sciences, October 4-9, 2009, Volterra, Italy, 2009, article id ITP-09-52Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Flow induced alteration in permeability of deformable systems of fibres is studied. Low Reynolds number transversal flow through random arrays of aligned cylinders is considered by using a combined methodology of directly solving the twodimensional Navier-Stokes equations for the flow in the vicinity of a single fibre and minimisation of the dissipation rate in a system of fibres. The permeability of large random arrays increases always which is most apparent for compact systems with equal sized fibres. The permeability can also decrease but then for structured or small systems. The elastic deformations of fibre bundles are calculated basing microscopic fibre structure.

    Fluid flow induced deformation of porous medium: modeling of the no erosion filter test experiment2010In: Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Porous Media and its Applications in Science and Engineering: ICPM3, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To study internal erosion in depth it is necessary to know either the detailed flow or how it varies in a statistical manner. It is also important to know how the internal erosion process initiates and progresses due to the fluid flow-induced forces. The underlying reason for this is that internal erosion will initiate exactly where the forces from the fluid are higher than the retaining forces that keep the particles together. Hence, a new model is here developed where fluid flow induced deformations of a large number of particles is studied. The model is applied to the No Erosion Filter test and simulated results resemble experimental results from the literature. The NEF test is used to investigate parameters such as the hydraulic conductivity and also in detail the process of internal erosion. The simulations are performed on different set-ups to exemplify successful and unsuccessful sealing. In the model, minimization of the dissipation rate of energy is accompanied with discretization of the system with modified Voronoi diagrams. Then Computational Fluid Dynamics is applied to solve the flow within each part of the Voronoi diagrams. Different parameters, such as the vorticity, calculated with the CFD-software are then used as input to the Monte Carlo-simulations. An overall good conformity between simulated results and experimental results from the literature is obtained.

    Flow-induced deformations within random packed beds of spheres2014In: Transport in Porous Media, ISSN 0169-3913, E-ISSN 1573-1634, Vol. 104, no 1, p. 43-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Low Reynolds number flow-induced alterations of permeability of random packing of mono-sized spheres is studied. The number of spheres is several thousands and the porosities ranges between 0.4 and 0.6. The change of permeability is obtained for elastic deformations of the positions of the spheres using either of two methods. Each sphere is elastically attached to single points or the spheres that are connected via an elastic porous network. The system of spheres is divided into smaller volumes with Voronoi diagrams and the flow is derived by usage of a dual stream function. The local saturated flow fields are approximated as for close packed spheres and the overall flow pattern is obtained by minimising the dissipation rate of energy. The results show that the permeability for large random systems increases as a function of velocity and thus the deformation. The alteration is, however, much less than for two-dimensional cases like parallel cylinders. The relative increase in permeability becomes larger as the porosity increases from 0.4 to 0.6.

    Fluid flow induced internal erosion within porous media: modelling of the no erosion filter test experiment2011In: Transport in Porous Media, ISSN 0169-3913, E-ISSN 1573-1634, Vol. 89, no 3, p. 441-457Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An investigation of the potential to numerically model the no erosion filter test is performed here, where the flow through a large ensemble of particles is considered by applying minimisation of dissipation rate of energy on the ensemble that is discretised with modified Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulation. Low-Reynolds number simulations are applied to each part of the Voronoi diagram using computational fluid dynamics. The mechanical friction between particles is modelled by increasing the effective viscosity for closely spaced particles. Microscopic mechanisms for successful and unsuccessful sealing of filters are obtained. The numerical results agree with previously presented experimental observations by Sherard and Dunnigan. A conformity is that the sealing starts from the end of the channel and continues outwards in the radial direction. The sealing implies that the permeability can be reduced several orders of magnitude during a test.

    Automatic recognition and analysis of scanned non-crimp fabrics for calculation of their fluid flow permeability2007In: Journal of reinforced plastics and composites (Print), ISSN 0731-6844, E-ISSN 1530-7964, Vol. 26, no 3, p. 285-296Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Automatic recognition of scanned images of distorted bi-axial fiber bundle arrangements is considered in order to obtain the overall permeability of the formed fiber network. Scanned images are pre-processed with color normalization followed by usage of a threshold to find the pixels belonging to the bundles, the threads keeping the bundles together, and the distinct gaps formed between the bundles. Since the scanned images virtually have a perfect grayscale, the intensity can be treated as a corresponding signal of the image. Next the regular character of the fiber network is investigated using Fourier analysis on the fiber bundles as well as on the threads. The direction, position, and spatial separation of the fiber bundle and the threads are obtained in this way. In order to recognize the bottom fiber bundle layer a fine structure technique is used. Small clusters falsely identified as belonging to the bottom bundle layer are removed by application of a threshold to the perimeter of the cluster. The gaps in the top bundle layer are identified more clearly in this way. Next, a local Fourier analysis is applied to obtain the local distortion of the bundle and the thread structure yielding the characteristic distribution of the gaps between the bundles. Finally the distribution of the width of the threads is obtained by simply identifying the minimal distance between the sides of the threads.

    Influence of flow-induced deformations of fabrics on the formation and transport of bubbles during liquid moulding processes2011In: Mechanics of composite materials, ISSN 0191-5665, E-ISSN 1573-8922, Vol. 47, no 2, p. 221-232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The viscous flow-induced deformation of non-crimp fabrics during liquid moulding processes, such as resin transfer moulding, and its influence on the creation of bubbles behind the liquid front are studied. A transverse flow with a low Reynolds number through random arrays of aligned cylinders is considered with account of changes in the transverse permeability of fibre bundles. A combined methodology of directly solving the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations for the flow in the vicinity of a single fibre and minimization of the dissipation rate in a system of fibres is employed. Sethian's level set method is used for transient calculations of the motion of the liquid-gas front, at which the capillary pressure is accounted for. The continuity is maintained, and local correlations between the dimensions of neighbouring gaps formed between bundles are used. The elastic deformations of the fibre bundles are calculated based on micromechanical analyses. The void fractions of inter-and intrabundle bubbles obtained differ for deformable and non-deformable fabrics, but both the cases compare well with those from real mouldings

    Modelling of particle deposition during impregnation of dual-scale fabrics2011In: Plastics, rubber and composites, ISSN 1465-8011, E-ISSN 1743-2898, Vol. 40, no 2, p. 65-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The motion of particles through a system of permeable fibre bundles is considered. The system is discretisised with Voronoi diagrams and the dissipation rate of energy is minimised with respect to the stream function in a system with periodic boundary conditions. The flow of the particles is in the transversal direction to the fibre bundles and the particles are hindered to move out of the plane allowing for two-dimensional calculations. The motion of particles is assumed to be slow with respect to the flowrate so that particles are driven by the Stokesian force for stationary particles. In this case, the flow distribution is essentially dependent on the particle configuration and strictly follows the motion of particles. When testing different sizes of the particles, it is shown that there is a qualitative agreement between model and experiments previously performed. In particular, stationary flow leads to particle depositions in front of the fibre bundles and small particles move into the fibre bundles while large ones are stuck at the border

    Lattice gas analysis of liquid front in non-crimp fabrics2010In: Transport in Porous Media, ISSN 0169-3913, E-ISSN 1573-1634, Vol. 84, no 1, p. 75-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The liquid flow front during impregnation of non-crimp fabrics is considered. Irregularities in fibre bundle architecture lead to generation of bubbles at this front. The velocity of this interface is highly influenced by capillary forces mainly caused by the small fibres inside the bundles. In order to better understand which shapes the liquid front takes up at different conditions, a lattice gas model has been applied. First, the macroscopic properties of the solved gas in the liquid are discussed. Next, bubble inclusions are analyzed as to liquid-gas interface position and concentrations of minor component in each phase. The capillary effects at the fluid front are studied for systems both with and without gaps between the bundles. The flow in the interior of the fibre bundles is scrutinized, as well, by also considering the viscous stresses. The flow through unidirectional fabrics is considered by a one-dimensional model, which suggests that the liquid front inside bundles and gaps moves with the same speed when the liquid front inside the bundle has to catch up with the liquid front in the gap

    Bubble motion through non-crimp fabrics during composites manufacturing2008In: Composites. Part A, Applied science and manufacturing, ISSN 1359-835X, E-ISSN 1878-5840, Vol. 39, no 2, p. 243-251Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bubbles motion through inter bundle channels in bi-axial non crimp fabrics is modelled. The scenario is that formed bubbles move with the resin through these channels and are trapped if the channels become too narrow. By usage of a permeability network model, existing criteria on bubble deformation and a variety of analytical and probabilistic methods it is found that the paths of the bubbles depend significantly on the position of the threads keeping the fabric together and the number of fibres crossing the interbundle channels. Another result is that the pressure difference over a trapped bubble increases with 50 % in a 3D geometry possible helping the bubble to escape. A third result is that, on average, the bubbles move biased to the direction of the tows. Finally it is found that the predicted void distribution of bubbles after a major part of bubbles have moved through the system are in qualitative agreement with experimental data.

    Permeability of clustered fibre networks: modelling of unit cell2003In: Mechanics of composite materials, ISSN 0191-5665, E-ISSN 1573-8922, Vol. 39, no 3, p. 265-272Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper is focused on estimating the permeability of a clustered fiber network by variational methods. First, a laminar flow in ducts is considered by using polynomial trial functions. Then, a longitudinal flow through a square array is described by expanding the flow-rate field in trigonometric and Laurent series. Finally, a formal scheme for estimating the longitudinal permeability in a cluster with an irregular distribution of fibers is given. The irregular distribution is modeled by setting an individual effective radius for each fiber and then letting this fiber reach its minimum gravitational energy. The results obtained here form a basis for future predictions of the permeability of fibrous reinforcements.

    In-plane permeability measurements on fiber reinforcements by the multi-cavity parallel flow technique1999In: Polymer Composites, ISSN 0272-8397, E-ISSN 1548-0569, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 146-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This report discusses the advantages and drawbacks of the multi-cavity parallel flow technique for permeability measurements. An experimental series with repeated measurements on material from the same roll shows that the repeatability of the technique is very good considering the manufacturing variability of the fabric. The measured standard deviation in the repeatability study is about 10%. It is, however, shown that the permeability can vary considerably- between reinforcements of similar geometry. Furthermore, computer simulations were used to estimate the errors when highly anisotropic materials are oriented at an angle to the material principal direction in the parallel flow technique. The conclusion based on the simulations is that the length to width ratio of the cavity should be larger than the anisotropy of the reinforcement for an acceptable error.

    CFD modelling of the flow through a grate-kiln2009In: Proceedings from Seventh International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics in Minerals and Process Industries: CSIRO, Melbourne, Australia, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As part of an investigation regarding secondary reduction of NOx emissions in a grate-kiln iron ore pelletizing plant, the aim of this specific research is to develop a CFD model that enhances the understanding of the aerodynamics and mixing of species inside the rotary kiln. At first, a parametric study of the pure airflow through the kiln is carried out and for certain conditions, a transient behaviour similar to that of vortex shedding was observed, with a dependence on momentum flux ratio between the secondary air jets. Further, the development of a preliminary coal combustion model is set out, which is in need of continued work in order to produce reliable predictions of various parameters relevant to the reduction process. However, the effect of the combustion on the flow field is limited, indicating that the pure airflow model can be used to broadly investigate the influence of the secondary air flow.

    A new method to visualize grease flow in a double restriction seal using microparticle image velocimetry2011In: Tribology Transactions, ISSN 1040-2004, E-ISSN 1547-397X, Vol. 54, p. 784-792Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new method to visualize and quantify grease flow in between two sealing lips or, in general, a double restriction seal is presented. Two setups were designed to mimic different types of seals; that is, a radial and an axial shaft seal. The flow of the grease inside and in between the sealing restrictions was measured using microparticle image velocimetry. The results show that grease flow due to a pressure difference mainly takes place close to the rotating shaft surface with an exponentially decaying velocity profile in the radial direction. Consequently, contaminants may be captured in the stationary grease at the outer radius, which explains the sealing function of the grease.

    Abstract [en]

    The flow field inside and downstream of an open channel placed near the surface of a free flow (such as the tail water of a turbine) is characterized in detail. The channel cross-section is U-shaped and in the downstream end is placed a ramp on the bottom which accelerates the flow passing through the channel. This flow is intended to catch the attention of fish and improve their entrance to fishways, which has also been successfully demonstrated in field tests.

    Cold flow experiments in an entrained flow gasification reactor with a swirl-stabilized pulverized biofuel burner2016In: International Journal of Multiphase Flow, ISSN 0301-9322, E-ISSN 1879-3533, Vol. 85, p. 267-277Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Short particle residence time in entrained flow gasifiers demands the use of pulverized fuel particles to promote mass and heat transfer, resulting high fuel conversion rate. The pulverized biomass particles have a wide range of aspect ratios which can exhibit different dispersion behavior than that of spherical particles in hot product gas flows. This results in spatial and temporal variations in temperature distribution, the composition and the concentration of syngas and soot yield. One way to control the particle dispersion is to impart a swirling motion to the carrier gas phase. This paper investigates the dispersion behavior of biomass fuel particles in swirling flows. A two-phase particle image velocimetry technique was applied to simultaneously measure particle and gas phase velocities in turbulent isothermal flows. Post-processed PIV images showed that a poly-dispersed behavior of biomass particles with a range of particle size of 112-160 μm imposed a significant impact on the air flow pattern, causing air flow decelerated in a region of high particle concentration. Moreover, the velocity field, obtained from individually tracked biomass particles showed that the swirling motion of the carrier air flow gives arise a rapid spreading of the particles

    Soot reduction in an entrained flow gasifier of biomass by active dispersion of fuel particles2017In: Fuel, ISSN 0016-2361, E-ISSN 1873-7153, Vol. 201, p. 111-117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Soot is an undesired by-product of entrained flow biomass gasification since it has a detrimental effect on operation of the gasifier, e.g. clogging of flow passages and system components and reduction of efficiency. This study investigated how active flow manipulation by adding synthetic jet (i.e. oscillating flow through orifice) in feeding line affects dispersion of fuel particles and soot formation. Pine sawdust was gasified at the conditions similar to pulverized burner flame, where a flat flame of methane-air sub-stoichiometric mixture supported ignition of fuel particles. A synthetic jet flow was supplied by an actuator assembly and was directed perpendicular to a vertical tube leading to the center of the flat flame burner through which pine sawdust with a size range of 63–112 μm were fed into a reactor. Quartz filter sampling and the laser extinction methods were employed to measure total soot yield and soot volume fraction, respectively. The synthetic jet actuator modulated the dispersion of the pine sawdust and broke up particle aggregates in both hot and cold gas flows through generation of large scale vortex structures in the flow. The soot yield significantly reduced from 1.52 wt.% to 0.3 wt.% when synthetic jet actuator was applied. The results indicated that the current method suppressed inception of young soot particles. The method has high potential because soot can be reduced without changing major operation parameters.

    Active fuel particles dispersion by synthetic jet in an entrained flow gasifier of biomass: Cold flow2016In: Powder Technology, ISSN 0032-5910, E-ISSN 1873-328X, Vol. 302, p. 275-282Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pulverized fuel (PF) burners play a key role for the performance of PF fired gasification and combustion plants, by minimizing pollutant emission, fuel consumption and hence fuel costs. However, fuel diversity in power generation plants imposes limitations on the performance of existing PF burners, especially when burning solid fuel particles with poor flowability like biomass sawdust. In the present study, a vertically downward laminar flow was laden with biomass particles at different particle mass loading ratios, ranging from 0.47 to 2.67. The particle laden flow was forced by a synthetic jet actuator over a range of forcing amplitudes, 0.35–1.1 kPa. Pulverized pine particles with a sieve size range of 63–112 μm were used as biomass feedstock. Two-phase particle image velocimetry was applied to measure the velocity of the particles and air flow at the same time. The results showed that the synthetic jet had a large influence on the flow fields of both air and powdered pine particles, via a convective effect induced by vortex rings that propagate in the flow direction. The particle velocity, particle dispersion and hence inter-particle distance increased with increasing forcing amplitude. Moreover, particles accumulated within a specific region of the flow, based on their size. The effect on particle dispersion was more pronounced in the forced flows with low mass loading ratios

    Abstract [en]

    A fully developed turbulent particle-gas flow in a rectangular horizontalchannel 100 × 10 × 4000 mm3 is disclosed with high spatial resolution2D Particle Image Velocimetry. The objective is to increase the knowledge ofthe mechanisms behind alterations in turbulent characteristics when adding twosets of relatively large solid spherical particles with mean diameters of 525and 755 μm and particle size distributions of 450 - 600 and 710 - 800 μm,respectively. Reynolds numbers are 4000 and 5600 and relatively high volumefraction of 5.4 × 10-4 and 8.0 × 10-4 are tested. Both thenear wall turbulent boundary layer flow and outer core flow are considered. Resultsshow that the carrier phase turbulent intensities increase with volume fractionof the inertial particles. The overall mean flowvelocity is affected when adding the particles but only to a minor extent. Nearthe wall, averaged velocity decreases while fluctuating velocity componentsincrease when particles are added to the flow. Quadrant analysis shows theimportance of sweep near the wall and ejection events in the region defined byy+ > 20. In conclusion, high inertia particles can enhanceturbulence even at relatively low Particle Reynolds number < 90. In the nearbottom wall region particles tend to be a source of instability reflected asenhancement in rms values of the normal velocity component.

    Turbulent modulation in particulate flow: A review of critical variables2015In: Engineering, ISSN 1947-3931, E-ISSN 1947-394X, Vol. 7, no 10, p. 597-609, article id 8102444Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A review of the main mechanisms influencing turbulent modulation in the presence of spherical and non-spherical particles is presented. The review demonstrates the need for more numerical and experimental work with higher accuracy than obtained so far and the need to resolve the flow near the surface of particles with the aim to re-evaluate the quantitative effect of different parameters on turbulent modulation. The review reveals that non-spherical particles have more adverse effect on turbulence as compared to spherical ones, for the same ambient conditions

    Simulation and experiments of entrance flow conditions to a fishway2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When migrating fish tries to pass around man made obstacles such as hydropower dams with the aid of fish passages it is important that the migrating path is constructed in an efficient manner. By designing the entrance of the fishway in a manner that gives attractive flow conditions for migrating fish, the overall passage efficiency can be increased. In this study two alternative design solutions have been studied with numerical simulations, lab-scale experiments and in-field testing to achieve such attractive flow. Designs studied are constructions yielding a submerged jet, in order to increase the velocity of the flow at the entrance, and a half-cylinder, in order to create vortices that the fishes can utilize when continuing their journey towards their spawning grounds. A combination of the previous mentioned setups was also investigated. A first result shows that the increase in velocity decreases the residence time downstream the fishway and increases the total passage efficiency while the result from the vorticity generation is inconclusive at this point. The combination of the two designs shows similar passage efficiency as with only velocity increase although it does not show the same decrease in residence time. Improvements on the design of the vorticity generator and shape optimization of the construction generating the jet could further improve the efficiency of the fishway

    Flow through porous media at moderate Reynolds number2006In: Proceedings, 4th International Scientific Colloquium Modelling for Material Processing, 2006, p. 129-134Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In modelling of flow through porous media inertia-effects must sometimes be considered. This is often done by usage of the empirically derived Ergun equation that can describe the response of several porous media but does not reveal the real mechanisms for the flow. In order to increase the understanding of such flows we have therefore performed a micromechanically based study of moderate Re' flow between parallel cylinders using a Computational Fluid Dynamics approach. The simulations are carried out with quality and trust by using grid refinement techniques and securing that the iteration error is sufficiently small. Main results are that the Ergun equation fits well to simulated data up to Re' 20, that inertia-effects must be taken into account when Re' exceeds 10 and that results from stationary simulations replicate time resolved ones at least up to Re' 880.

    Parallel CFD simulations of an original and redesigned hydraulic turbine draft tube2007In: Advances in Engineering Software, ISSN 0965-9978, E-ISSN 1873-5339, Vol. 38, no 5, p. 338-344Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The design of hydraulic turbine draft tubes has traditionally been based on simplified analytic methods, model and full-scale experiments. In the recent years the use of numerical methods such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has increased in the design process, due to the rapid escalation in computer performance. Today with parallel computer architectures, new aspects of flow can be considered. However, several problems have still to be solved before CFD can routinely be applied in product development. This paper aims to investigate the parallel performance of commercial CFD software on homogeneous computer networks, as common solutions encountered in the industry today. In addition, the efficiency improvements obtained in earlier experiments by modifying the shape of the draft tube will be considered, to deduce if the improvements can be captured with aid of CFD. Results from both the steady and the unsteady CFD simulations show that almost full scalability is obtained with the commercial CFD software CFX-5.7.1. Furthermore, no noticeable improvement in the pressure recovery factor or the flow field is noticed in the CFD simulations as compared to experiments. The discrepancy may be to the applied inlet boundary conditions and/or the turbulence model.

    Mechanisms of flow-induced deformation of porous media2010In: Journal of Fluid Mechanics, ISSN 0022-1120, E-ISSN 1469-7645, Vol. 664, p. 220-237Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study investigates creeping flow-induced alteration in the permeability of deformable particle systems. Low-Reynolds-number transversal flow through random arrays of aligned cylinders is considered by means of a combined methodology of directly solving the two-dimensional (2D) Stokes equations for the flow in the vicinity of two particles and minimising the dissipation rate in a system comprising thousands of particles. The results demonstrate that the more compact the system, the greater the possible relative change of permeability when a high flow rate is applied. The permeability of large random arrays always increases when increasing the flow rate, which is most apparent in compact systems with equal-sized particles. The permeability can sometimes decrease but only in structured or small systems.

    Laminar and turbulent flow through an array of cylinders2010In: Journal of Porous Media, ISSN 1091-028X, E-ISSN 1934-0508, Vol. 13, no 12, p. 1073-1085Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When modeling fluid flow through porous media it is necessary to know when to take inertia effects into account, as well as when to switch to a turbulent description of the flow. From an engineering point of view, the problem is often solved with the empirically derived Ergun equation or a recently upgraded version by Nemec and Levec [Chem. Eng. Sci., vol. 60, pp. 6947−6957, 2005]. The drawback with this approach is, however, that the mechanisms for the transitions between the three states of flow are not revealed and time-consuming experiments have to be performed. In order to increase knowledge of the detailed flow, numerical studies of flow through arrays of quadratically packed cylinders at a variety of Re values were carried out. One result is that the laminar and turbulent approaches used both mimic experimental results for low Re, while for higher Re only the turbulent approach resembles the empirically derived equations. The deviation from Darcy’s law for different porosities of the array can be defined by usage of Re based on the hydraulic radius and the average interstitial velocity. However, to find a common Re when turbulence need to be accounted for, another Re based solely on the averaged interstitial velocity and the diameter of the cylinders was used. It was found that at low Re the laminar and turbulent setups give practically the same velocity fields, while the turbulent dissipation at higher Re results in larger circulation zones and weaker jets.

    Flow through a hexagonal array of perturbed spheres at low to high Reynolds number2007In: Abstracts of the Second International Conference on Porous Media and its Applications in Science, Engineering and Industry, Engineering Conferences International , 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When performing numerical simulations of fluid flow through porous media it is necessary to know when to switch from a creeping flow formulation to a more elaborate laminar description. In the creeping flow regime the Darcy law is sufficient while when inertia-effects become significant it is necessarily to use the full Navier-Stokes equations or at least add a non-linear term to Darcy's law as done in the empirically derived Ergun equation. The latter equation has also turned out to be valid for turbulent flows. It is however not obvious which equation to use at a certain Reynolds number. In order to solve this problem Computational Fluid Dynamics is used to derive the apparent permeability of a hexagonal packed array of spheres. In addition the forces acting on the spheres are derived when a perturbation in the form of a spherically shaped particle is introduced in the pore space. Then simulations are performed at various Reynolds number ranging from the creeping flow region to moderate Reynolds number flows. The simulations are carried out with the commercially available software, ANSYS CFX 11.0, with a particular effort on grid refinement and numerical iteration in order to secure that the errors are sufficiently small. One result is that inertia effects become important already at Reynolds number about 5 for as well the array as the perturbed geometry. As the particle radius increases the shear and normal forces per unit area decreases. In general, these forces increase with Reynolds number. The simulations however show that for some cases the normal forces per unit area decreases and even change sign as Reynolds number increases.

    Forces on grains located in model geometry with application to internal erosion in embankment dams2007In: International Symposium on Modern Technology of Dams: The 4th EADC Symposium, 2007, p. 375-386Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For a comprehensive understanding of internal erosion in embankment dams it is necessary to elucidate the detailed seepage flow. A neat tool that can be used for this purpose is Computational Fluid Dynamics. With such a tool forces on individual particles can be derived and means to decide when to switch from a creeping flow formulation to a more elaborate laminar description for macroscopic flow simulations can be derived. It can even be decided when the transition from a laminar formulation to a fully turbulent description should take place. In the creeping flow regime a Darcy law formulation is sufficient while when inertia-effects become significant it is necessary to use the Navier-Stokes equations or at least add a non-linear term to Darcy's law as done in the empirically derived Ergun equation. It is, however, not obvious which equation to use at a certain Reynolds number. Hence, Computational Fluid Dynamics is here used to derive the apparent permeability of a hexagonal packed array of spheres. Then, grains are introduced in the pore space between the spheres and forces acting on the grains are derived. It will then be possible to decide at what conditions such particles will start to move, due to flow induced forces, and thereby initiating internal erosion. The simulations are performed at various Reynolds number ranging from the creeping flow region to the transition regime. The software ANSYS CFX 11.0 is applied with particular effort on grid refinement and numerical iteration in order to secure that the numerical errors are sufficiently small. One result is that inertia-effects become important already at a Reynolds number of 10. Another is that the forces acting on the grains can decrease as a function of Reynolds number and can as well be dependent on the geometry of the grains, even though the force per unit area on the array of spheres increases. Interestingly, the direction of the forces on the grains can even be opposite to the main flow direction.

A neat tool that can be used for this purpose is Computational Fluid Dynamics in which forces on individual particles in a porous media can be derived. The model geometry chosen to represent the porous media is a hexagonal array of spheres into which smaller particles are introduced which are supposed to move at a certain level of flow induced forces. It is shown that the mesh deformation method introduced has a potential to model internal erosion.

    Abstract [en]

    When modeling fluid flow through porous media it is necessary to know when to switch from a creeping flow formulation to a more elaborate laminar description or to a fully turbulent one. This is of importance in a large number of industrial processes such as flow through embankment dams, composites manufacturing, filtering and in the refinement of iron ore pellets. Regarding the creeping flow regime the Darcy law is sufficient while when inertia-effects become significant it is necessary to use the full Navier-Stokes equations or at least add a non-linear term to Darcy's law as done in the empirically derived Ergun equation, which has also turned out to be valid for some turbulent flows. It is however not obvious which equation to use at a certain Reynolds number and on what velocities and length scales Reynolds number should be based on. In order to shed some light on this Computational Fluid Dynamics is here applied to simple model geometries of porous media. In particular the flow through quadratic and hexagonal arrays of cylinders is studied. The main quantities of interest are the apparent permeability, the Blake-type friction factor as well as the forces acting on the cylinders. The simulations are carried out for a wide range of Reynolds number ranging from the creeping region to rather high Reynolds number flow, considering flow in porous media. The simulations are based on as well a laminar flow formulation as a turbulent one where the turbulence model chosen is the Shear Stress Transport model, and the CFD-software used is ANSYS CFX with extra care regarding grid resolution and numerical iteration in order to secure that the numerical errors are sufficiently small. One result is that inertia-effects become significant already at Reynolds number of about 10, for the quadratic packing, but around 50 for the hexagonal arrangement and the region where the laminar simulations differ considerably from the turbulent calculations is dependent on the different array arrangements.

    Modeling phosphate transport and removal in a compact bed filled with a mineral-based sorbent for domestic wastewater treatment2013In: Journal of Contaminant Hydrology, ISSN 0169-7722, E-ISSN 1873-6009, Vol. 154, p. 70-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Phosphorus filter units containing mineral-based sorbents with a high phosphate (PO4) binding capacity have been shown to be appropriate for removing PO4 in the treatment of domestic wastewater in on-site facilities. However, better understanding of their PO4 removal mechanisms, and reactions that could lead to the formation of PO4 compounds, is required to evaluate the potential utility of candidate sorbents. Models based on data obtained from laboratory-scale experiments with columns of selected materials can be valuable for acquiring such understanding. Thus, in this study the transport and removal of PO4 in experiments with a laboratory-scale column filled with a commercial silicate-based sorbent were modeled, using the hydro-geochemical transport code PHREEQC. The resulting models, that incorporated the dissolution of calcite, kinetic constrains for the dissolution of calcium oxide (CaO) and wollastonite (CaSiO3), and the precipitation of amorphous tricalcium phosphate, Ca3(PO4)2, successfully simulated the removal of PO4 observed in the experiments.
