In the geothermal energy domain, it is common practice to drill a doublet (i.e. an injection and production well pair) system for heat production from the subsurface. Injector-producer spacing typically varies between 1 to 2 km. This well spacing distance is usually chosen through engineering judgement. The concept of drilling doublet systems is...

Purpose: This paper aims to explore the fluid flow in the stereolithography process during the recoating step. The understanding of the flow dynamics can be used as an input for an active control of the resin surface height map. The recoating over a rectangular cavity has been considered to investigate the influence of the cavity depth on the...

The effect of pile driving noise on the marine environment is an important factor in environmental impact assessment of planned marine structures, such as ports, bridges or offshore wind farms. Numerous models have been developed to predict the noise levels to be expected from such activities and to advise suitable mitigation measures to concur...

The PELE ammunition is characterized by a low-density filling material surrounded by a high-density brittle jacket material. An analytical model describing the fragmentation of this ammunition behind a target plate is presented. This model assumes uniaxial strain in the filling and uses the RankingeHugoniot relations to calculate the material...

A methodology is presented to infer the refractive-index structure function parameter and the structure parameters for temperature and humidity from numerical simulations of the turbulent atmospheric convective boundary layer (CBL). The method employs spatial and temporal averaging of multiple realizations of the CBL flow field reproduced by a...

The charge injection barriers in organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) seem to be far less critical as compared to organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Counter intuitively, we show that the origin is image-force lowering of the barrier due to the gate bias at the source contact, although the corresponding gate field is perpendicular to the...

Within the EU FP7 QUIESST project, QUIeting the Environment for a Sustainable Surface Transport, a test method is being developed for the reflectivity of noise barriers. The method needs to account for a complex shape of barriers and the use of various types of absorbing materials. The performance of a barrier is to be measured in the near field...

The charge transport in blue light-emitting polyspirobifluorene is investigated by both steady-state current-voltage measurements and transient electroluminescence. Both measurement techniques yield consistent results and show that the hole transport is space-charge limited. The electron current is found to be governed by a high intrinsic...

Numerical simulation plays an important role in product design. Its accuracy relays on a detailed description of geometry, material models, load and boundary conditions. This paper focuses on a new approach of FEM material modeling of three commercially available molding compounds. Curing shrinkage, modulus of elasticity and coefficient of...

Thin-film transistors (TFTs), which use zinc oxide (ZnO) as an active layer, were fabricated and investigated in detail. The transport properties of ZnO deposited by spray pyrolysis (SP) on a TFT structure are studied in a wide range of temperatures, electrical conditions (i.e., subthreshold, above-threshold linear, and saturation regions), and...

The availability of powerful computers these days increasingly enables the use of CFD for the numerical simulation of explosion phenomena. The BLAST software consists of a compilation of codes for the numerical simulation of the gas dynamics of explosions. Each individual code has been tailored to a specific application. After a brief...

The objective of this work was to investigate the influences of constitutive non linearities of brain tissue in numerical head model simulations by comparing the performance of a recently developed non linear constitutive model [10, 11] with a simplified version, based on neo-Hookean elastic behaviour, and with a previously developed...

A new approach for performing numerical direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) simulations on turbomolecular pumps in the free molecular and transitional flow regimes is described. The chosen approach is to use surfaces that move relative to the grid to model the effect of rotors and stators on a gas flow. The current article describes the method...

We report an investigation into factors limiting the functional lifetime of multilayer piezoceramic actuators. The study consists of a combination of lifetime experiments by means of an accelerated lifetime test, inspection of the actuator microstructure at different stages of the accelerated lifetime test, and numerical simulation of the...

Degassing of groundwater by excess denitrification of agricultural pollution complicates the interpretation of 3H/3He data and hinders the estimation of travel times in nitrate pollution studies. In this study we used a two-phase flow and transport model (STOMP) to evaluate the method presented by Visser (2007a) to interpret degassed 3H/ 3He...

The accuracy of tyre models depends to a large extent on the measurement data used to assess model parameters. The MF-Swift tyre model parameters can be identified or estimated from various combinations of experimental data. The amount and required accuracy of the measurement data can be selected according to the tyre model application. This...

A multi-scale study of the performance of protective clothing has been performed by coupling various types of numerical simulation of flow, heat and mass transfer. From meso-scale Direct Numerical Simulation, it was found that the flow underneath the clothing is laminar and periodic, with a magnitude much smaller than the free stream velocity....

The turbulent flow and heat transfer in a channel with surface mounted cubical obstacles forms a generic example of a problem that occurs in many engineering applications, for instance in the design of cooling devices. We have performed a numerical simulation of it without using any turbulence models. This approach is the most accurate - but...

Truck accidents represent a significant factor in the overall road accident scene, namely 25 to 30% of the fatal accidents in the EU. Collision partners of trucks are mainly passenger cars in car-to-truck frontal collisions. The severity of this kind of accidents is due to the incompatibility of both vehicles. Today's passenger cars are built in...
