We investigate the transport of relatively heavy, small particles through a downward displacement-ventilated space. A flux of particles is supplied to the space from a localised source at a high level and forms a turbulent particle-laden plume which descends through the space. A constant flow of ambient fluid which does not contain particles is supplied to the space at a high level, while an equal amount of fluid is vented from the space at a low level. As a result of the entrainment of ambient… 

On the transport of heavy particles through an upward displacement-ventilated space

We explore the transport of heavy particles through an upward displacement-ventilated space. The space incorporates a localised source of buoyancy which generates a turbulent buoyant plume. The plume

Particle fountains in a confined environment

We present new experiments and theoretical models of the motion of relatively dense particles carried upwards by a liquid jet into a laterally confined space filled with the same liquid. The incoming

Collapse of particle-laden buoyant plumes 905

Particle loading affects the dynamics of buoyant plumes, since the difference between particle and fluid densities is much greater than that in the fluid alone. In stratified environments, plume rise

Mixing and reaction in turbulent plumes: the limits of slow and instantaneous chemical kinetics

We investigate the behaviour of a reactive plume in the two limiting cases of slow and instantaneous chemical reactions. New laboratory measurements show that, whereas the slow reaction between the

TLDR
This paper explores the process of turbulent buoyant plumes moving through density stratified environments, illustrating the phenomena with a series of analogue experiments and some simple modelling, and discusses the applications in helping to quantify some environmental impacts of deep-sea mining and in help to assess the eruption conditions leading to the formation of large laterally spreading ash clouds in the atmosphere.

On turbulent particle fountains

We describe new experiments in which particle-laden turbulent fountains with source Froude numbers $20>Fr_{0}>6$ are produced when particle-laden fresh water is injected upwards into a reservoir

Confronting Grand Challenges in environmental fluid mechanics

Environmental fluid mechanics underlies a wealth of natural, industrial and, by extension, societal challenges. In the coming decades, as we strive towards a more sustainable planet, there are a wide

This paper describes the fluid mechanics of the natural ventilation of a space connected to a large body of stationary ambient fluid. The flows are driven by buoyancy differences between the interior

We investigate the buoyancy-driven ventilation of an enclosed volume of buoyant fluid, which is connected to the exterior through two openings at the top of the enclosure. An exchange flow becomes

We investigate the transient ventilation flow within a confined ventilated space, with high- and low-level openings, when the strength of a low-level point source of heat is changed instantaneously.

Particle transport in low-energy ventilation systems. Part 1: theory of steady states.

TLDR
It is illustrated that while average concentration of particles for traditional mixing systems and low energy displacement systems are similar, local concentrations can vary significantly with displacement systems, and engineers should take due diligence accordingly when designing ventilation systems.

Sedimentation from radially spreading gravity currents generated at the top of ascending sediment-laden plumes is described by a model which assumes that sediment is dispersed homogeneously by
