Understanding and controlling charge and energy flow in state-of-the-art semiconductor quantum wells has enabled high-efficiency optoelectronic devices. Two-dimensional (2D) Ruddlesden-Popper perovskites are solution-processed quantum wells wherein the band gap can be tuned by varying the perovskite-layer thickness, which modulates the effectiveâ€¦ (More)

The immersed boundary method is used to simulate the flow around a two-dimensional cross section of a rotating NACA0018 airfoil in order to investigate the dynamic stall occurring on a vertical axis wind turbine. The influence of dynamic stall on the force is characterized as a function of tip-speed ratio and Rossby number. The influence of the Coriolisâ€¦ (More)

The immersed boundary method is used to simulate the flow around a two-dimensional rotating NACA 0018 airfoil at sub-scale Reynolds number in order to investigate the separated flow occurring on a vertical-axis wind turbine. The influence of dynamic stall on the forces is characterized as a function of tip-speed ratio. The influence of the Coriolis effectâ€¦ (More)

The self-starting capability of a NACA 0018 multi-bladed vertical-axis wind turbine is numerically investigated. The immersed boundary method is used to simulate the flow around a two-dimensional cross section of the wind turbine and the predictor-corrector method is used to couple the equation of motion of the turbine. A simple load model, which isâ€¦ (More)
