Characteristics of Erosion and Sedimentation in Curved Fluid Passages
MetadataShow full item record
This research thesis examines the dynamics of particle movement from a granular bed in a curved fluid flow passage, for improved understanding of the erosion and sedimentation processes in river beds and slurry pipe flows. Changes to granular bed profiles are recorded and interpreted, identifying unique bed characteristics in relation to flow parameters. A computer simulation is developed for comparison with test results and to recognise of additional flow features of bed erosion and sedimentation.

Secondary Flow Vortex Structures and Forced Convection Heat Transfer in Fluid Flow through Curved Elliptical DuctsChandratilleke, Tilak; Nadim, Nima (2014)Fluid flow through curved ducts is essentially characterised by the secondary flow effects due to duct curvature and cross-sectional flow geometry. Such flows produce vortex structures making the fluid behaviour vastly ...
Nadim, Nima (2012)Fluid flow through curved ducts is influenced by the centrifugal action arising from duct curvature and has behaviour uniquely different to fluid flow through straight ducts. In such flows, centrifugal forces induce ...
