The ability to capture and visualize information within the flow poses challenges for visualizing 3D flow fields. Stream surfaces are one of many useful integration based techniques for visualizing 3D flow. However seeding integral surfaces can be challenging. Previous research generally focuses on manual placement of stream surfaces. Little attention has(More)
The visualisation of 3D flow poses many challenges. Difficulties can stem from attempting to capture all flow features, the speed of computation, and spatial perception. Streamlines and stream surfaces are standard tools for visualising 3D flow. Although a variety of automatic seeding approaches have been proposed for streamlines, little work has been(More)
BACKGROUND There are currently no field data about the effect of implementing European Working Time Directive (EWTD)-compliant rotas in a medical setting. Surveys of doctors' subjective opinions on shift work have not provided reliable objective data with which to evaluate its efficacy. AIM We therefore studied the effects on patient's safety and doctors'(More)
With increasing computing power, it is possible to process more complex fluid simulations. However, a gap between increasing data size and our ability to visualize them still remains. Despite the great amount of progress that has been made in the field of flow visualization over the last two decades, a number of challenges remain. Whilst the visualization(More)
The placement or seeding of stream surfaces in 3D flow fields faces a number of challenges. These challenges include perception, occlusion, and the appropriate representation of flow characteristics. A variety of streamline seeding approaches exist, little corresponding work is presented for stream surfaces. We present a novel automatic stream surface(More)
A novel space vector method which uses average currents over a switching cycle is proposed for the analysis of three-phase power factor correction circuits operating in discontinuous conduction mode. The technique is applied to a family of circuits with switches on the AC-side. The improvement in performance and wider flexibility of operation over DC-side(More)
The successful supportive management of an acute strychnine ingestion is described; clinical and biochemical findings are reported. A gas chromatographic assay for serum strychnine has been applied to the analysis of 19 serial blood samples. Four hours post ingestion, the serum strychnine concentration was 1.6 mg/L. This declined with T 1/2 [corrected] of(More)
Flow characteristics in coastal regions are strongly influenced by the topography of the seabed and understanding the fluid dynamics is necessary before installation of tidal stream turbines (TST). In this paper, the bathymetry of a potential TST deployment site is used in the development of the a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) model. The steady state(More)
To fully understand the performance of tidal stream turbines for the development of ocean renewable energy, a range of computational models is required. We review and compare results from several models of horizontal axis turbines at different spatial scales. Models under review include blade element momentum theory (BEMT), blade element actuator disk,(More)
