Discovering the Complex Aerodynamics of Flapping Flight with Bio-kinematics Using Boltzmann and Eulerian Methods
(Virginia Tech, 2017-08-31)
The cross-sectional geometry of an insect wing has historically been simplified to a rectangular, elliptic, or having a streamlined airfoil shape. Up until this point, no analysis has utilized a morphologically accurate ...
Computational Study of Turbulent Combustion Systems and Global Reactor Networks
(Virginia Tech, 2017-09-05)
A numerical study of turbulent combustion systems was pursued to examine different computational modeling techniques, namely computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and chemical reactor network (CRN) methods. Both methods have ...
