Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the possibilities of the particle finite element method for simulation of free surface flows.

Design/methodology/approach – A numerical simulation of a number of examples for which experimental data are available [...]

Abstract

The field of fluid-structure interaction (FSI) has important
applications ranging from the bio-medical to the civil and
aeronautical engineering fields. Despite the different approaches
developed over recent years the general solution of FSI problems
remains [...]

Purpose
 
– The purpose of this paper is to highlight the possibilities of a novel Lagrangian formulation in dealing with the solution of the incompressible Navier‐Stokes equations [...]

Abstract

Empirical Colebrook equation implicit in unknown flow friction factor (λ) is an accepted standard forcalculation of hydraulic resistance in hydraulically smooth and rough pipes. The Colebrook equation givesfriction factor (λ) implicitly as a function of the Reynolds [...]

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe a finite element formulation to approximate thermally coupled flows using both the Boussinesq and the low Mach number models with particular emphasis on the numerical implementation of the algorithm developed.
