    • A new column collapse apparatus for the characterisation of the flowability of granular materials 

      Torres Serra, Joel; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2020-02)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The packaging industry is lacking a standard methodology to characterise the granular flow of a wide range of powders and grains in actual handling conditions. We present a new fully-instrumented granular column collapse ...
    • Experimental visualization study of the velocity flow in the bass-reflex port of a loudspeaker 

      Cunill Jufré, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-01-20)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      A bass-reflex port is an open pipe that connect the volume of the loudspeaker with the surrounding environment. Its role is to accentuate the low frequency range of sound.  For some geometries a vortex shedding can be ...
    • Flow characterization study of straight minichannel devices using microPIV 

      Cufí Prat, Francesca (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-04)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      In the last decades there has been a growing interest to develop mi-croscale devices that can manipulate and transport relatively small volumes of fluids. These devices have applications in many areas of engineering, including ...
    • Formation of tip-vortices on triangular prismatic-shaped cliffs. Part 1: A wind tunnel study 

      Cochard, S.; Letchford, C.W.; Earl, T. A.; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de (2012)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Speed-up over topography has long been recognized as significant for structural design and wind energy applications. Here wind flow over cliffs that have a sawtooth plan are studied for speed-up effects under different ...
    • Intermittency and multi-fractal velocimetry (IMFV) in Rayleigh-Taylor and convective flows 

      Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Malik, Nadeem; Vila, Teresa; Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel (2016)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      New descriptors to investigate mixing in multi-scale turbulence analysis and couple PIV Laser induced applications with Fractal analysis in Shock induced flows as well as in convective driven flows are discussed. The ...
    • Magnetic hyperthermia for particle image velocimetry (MH-PIV) 

      Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2021-01-26)
      External research report
      Open Access
      In this work a novel approach is investigated for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) which is a technique used as optical method for instantaneous flow visualization. So far traditional PIV is based in the injection of small ...
    • Novel analysis for large strains based on particle image velocimetry 

      Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè; Alvarado Bueno, Mauricio (2017-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      Over the last few decades, the particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique has become an interesting tool used to measure displacements in the field of experimental mechanics. This paper presents a procedure to interpret ...
    • Pressure effects on the performance of external gear pumps under cavitation 

      Campo Sud, David del; Castilla López, Roberto; Raush Alviach, Gustavo Adolfo; Gámez Montero, Pedro Javier; Codina Macià, Esteban (2014-11)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The numerical analysis of an external gear pump with cavitation effects has been validated with experimental data obtained by applying Time-Resolved Particle Image Velocimetry. The effect of inlet and outlet pressure on ...
    • Study of Time-Resolved Particle Image Velocimetry technique applied to a trochoidal gear pump 

      Olmedo Illera, Juan Manuel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-09)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      The work is based on the study of the fluid-dynamic behaviour of an internal gear pump of Gerotor type, by means of the Time-Resolved Particle Image Velocimetry (TRPIV). The main objective is to define the procedure of ...
