    • Study for the numerical resolution of combustion phenomena in burners 

      Godayol Capdevila, Èric (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06-17)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Combustion is a complex phenomenon of interest that combines chemical reactions and turbulent flows. Resolution of both problems is a difficult task. On the one hand, chemical reactions introduce a large amount of species ...
    • Study of preferential diffusion effects in a hydrogen premixed flame 

      Debrailly, Jules Charles Francois (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2023-07-10)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Transport phenomena give structure to flames, thus, being a key mechanism of combustion reactions. Molecular hydrogen (H2) combustion is characterized by strong preferential diffusion effects due to differences between the ...
    • Study of secondary flow losses in a gas turbine high pressure compressor 

      Brugué Bartolí, Pau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2023-07-20)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Assessing entropy generation gives an accurate and reliable data on where pressure and kinetic energy are lost. In this study, the entropy generation on a Raynolds (Re)= 104 flow inside a high pressure compressor (HPC) ...
