Numerical Simulation of Turbulence and In-Situ Tidal Turbine Performance in Minas Passage

Turbulence is a significant issue at every site being considered for instream tidal energy development. This turbulent flow creates fluctuating forces on tidal turbine blades and support structures, reducing turbine performance and shortening turbine lifespan. Thus, improving and validating numerical models of turbulence and turbine operation in turbulent flow is necessary to better predict device operation and, thus, develop efficient and financially viable tidal energy projects.

Multi-point shear-stress measurements on an impulsively started cylinder

Envenio is a Canadian company that specializes in advanced analysis of fluid dynamics and fluid structure interaction in the technological and environment settings. Envenio is also a software development company that owns an advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics solver, EXN/Aero, that uses many core technology in the parallel computation of unsteady and fully turbulent flows. Envenio seeks experimental data to validate their unsteady separation codes. To this end, an intern in Dr.

Visualizing the Performance of Scientific Applications Executing with Space-Time Domain Decomposition

Today’s high performance computers offer the possibility of computing complex large scale computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations in a reasonable time. In practice, exploting the thousands of computing cores to achieve the desired solution time is very challenging. These challenges include finding enough work to keep all these cores busy, and assigning work to different parts of the computing platform that can include different types of multicore processors and manycore graphics processors.

Helicopter Wake Modeling and its Interaction with Pesticide Droplet Transport

Aerial spraying (from an aircraft or helicopter) is a crucial component in the management of forest and agricultural lands around the world. Regulatory agencies, government laboratories, and industry have a considerable interest in optimizing the effectiveness of aerial spraying. To deliver aerial spray products with accuracy to their intended target on the ground requires understanding numerous influences primary among them meteorological effects, complex air flows in the wake of the spray aircraft and gravitational effects.
