We examine by means of large-scale interface-resolved numerical simulations the macroscopic behavior of dense suspensions of neutrally-buoyant spheres in turbulent plane channel flow. We show that particles larger than the smallest turbulence...

In this project, the turbulent flow is modeled by an entropy lattice Boltzmann method. Direct contact and lubrication force models for fiber-fiber interactions and fiber-wall interaction are taken into account to allow for a full four-way...

In technical as well as geophysical applications, the flow of a fluid around solid bodies is ubiquitous. Although in real cases, the geometry of the immersed object is usually complex and the flow is dominated by pressure gradients in various...

Large-scale instabilities occurring in the presence of small-scale turbulent fluctuations are frequently observed in geophysical or astrophysical contexts, but are difficult to reproduce in the laboratory. Thanks to the support of PRACE through a...

Complex fluids are multi-scale by nature where the physics at the micro-scale affects the macroscopic behaviour of the flow and vice versa giving rise to surprising and spectacular phenomena as well as making this one of the most important...

Development of modern adjoint-based optimisation tools and methods for design of wings with Natural Laminar Flow. Direct numerical simulations of flow over wings for understanding the physics of modern methods of transition control within...
