Revisiting the NASA surface tension driven convection experiments

Marangoni effect plays an important role in many industrial applications where a surface tension gradient induces fluid flow, e.g., the cleaning process of silicon wafers and the welding process of

Particle image velocimetry analysis with simultaneous uncertainty quantification using Bayesian neural networks

This is the first use of Bayesian neural networks to perform PIV, and it is found that BCNNs using interrogation region cross-correlation maps as inputs perform better than those using interrogation windows only as inputs and discusses reasons why this may be the case.

The leading-edge vortex over a swift-like high-aspect-ratio wing with nonlinear swept-back geometry

The leading-edge vortex (LEV) is a common flow structure that forms over wings at high angles of attack. Over the years, LEVs were exploited for augmenting the lift of man-made slender delta wings

Nonuniform heating of a substrate in evaporative lithography

The work is devoted to the study of one method connected with structured sediments formation, which belongs to the direction of evaporative lithography. A series of experiments were carried out with

Perspective: dusty plasma experiments—a learning tool for physics graduate students

Plasma is an ionized gas that responses collectively to any external (or internal) perturbation. Introducing micron-sized solid dust particles into plasma makes it more interesting. The dust

Measuring the Compressibility of Cellulose Nanofiber-Stabilized Microdroplets Using Acoustophoresis.

The results showed that the acoustic contrast factor for these droplets was negative, as the droplets relocated to pressure antinodes during ultrasonic actuation, which was consistent with the idea that the shell thickness depends on the droplet size, rather than being constant.



Long-Duration Time-Resolved PIV to Study Unsteady Aerodynamics

The buildup of flutter is shown to exhibit complex dynamics that are heavily influenced by the flow-induced motion of the body, and features of the wake turbulence as a function of time are presented and shown to substantially vary.

Estimation of Unsteady Aerodynamics in the Wake of a Freely Flying European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris)

It is shown that unsteady aerodynamics are necessary to satisfy the drag/thrust balance by approximating the unsteadY drag term and may shed light on the flight efficiency of birds by providing a partial answer to how they minimize drag during flapping flight.

PIVlab – Towards User-friendly, Affordable and Accurate Digital Particle Image Velocimetry in MATLAB

The accuracy of several algorithms was determined and the best performing methods were implemented in a user-friendly open-source tool for performing DPIV flow analysis in Matlab.

The vortex wake of blackcaps (Sylvia atricapilla L.) measured using high-speed digital particle image velocimetry (DPIV)

It is concluded that the birds do not use their tail to exploit vortices shed at the wing root during the downstroke, suggesting a more complex wake structure in birds than previously assumed and calls for more detailed studies of the flow over the wings and body.

The Near Wake of a European Starling

The wake of a freely flying European starling (Sturnus vulgaris) was measured using high speed, time-resolved, particle image velocimetry, simultaneously with high speed cameras which imaged the

Computation of Pressure Distribution Using PIV Velocity Data

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) can be used for pressure assessment. This non intrusive measurement method provide a high spatial resolution which is unavailable when using pressure transducers. The

Unsteady aerodynamics loads during flapping flight of birds; case study : starling and sandpiper

Flapping wing is one of the most widespread propulsion methods found in nature. However, the current understanding of the bird aerodynamics is incomplete. The role of unsteady motion in the flow and

Comparison between two and three-dimensional POD in a turbulent boundary layer using multi-plane stereoscopic PIV

A comparison between two- and three-dimensional analyses using proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) is performed. The investigated flow field is a turbulent boundary layer in a flume. The

A family of vortex wakes generated by a thrush nightingale in free flight in a wind tunnel over its entire natural range of flight speeds

A simple model is formulated and explained that mimics the correct, measured balance of forces in the downstroke- and upstroke-generated wake over the entire range of flight speeds, and might form the basis for a generalisable flight model.
