Two-dimensional, Hydrodynamic Modeling of Electrothermal Plasma Discharges
(Virginia Tech, 2016-07-06)
A two-dimensional, time-dependent model and code have been developed to model electrothermal (ET) plasma discharges. ET plasma discharges are capillary discharges that draw tens of kA of electric current. The current ...
The Application of the Solar Chimney for Ventilating Buildings
(Virginia Tech, 2016-11-09)
This study sought to demonstrate the potential applications of the solar chimney for the naturally ventilating a building. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was used to model various room configurations to assess ventilation ...
Hydrodynamic and gasification behavior of coal and biomass fluidized beds and their mixtures
(Virginia Tech, 2016-03-29)
In this study, efforts ensued to increase our knowledge of fluidization and gasification behavior of Geldart A particles using CFD. An extensive Eulerian-Eulerian numerical study was executed and simulations were compared ...
