      It is well known that the solution by means of iterative methods of very ill-conditioned systems leads to very poor convergence rates. In this context, preconditioning becomes crucial in order to modify the spectrum of the ...
    • Simulation of fluid-structure interaction and impact force on a reed valve 

      Castrillo Green, Pablo; Schillaci, Eugenio; Rigola Serrano, Joaquim (2021)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The cyclic impact force between a reed valve and the seat plate is the main reason of the valve failure in many thermo-technical devices as compressors, engines, etc. According to experimental observations the latter is ...
    • Experimental and numerical analysis of reed valve movement in an impact fatigue test system and reciprocating compressors 

      Tofique, Muhammad Waqas; Löf, Alexander; Schillaci, Eugenio; Castrillo Green, Pablo; Rigola Serrano, Joaquim (Purdue University, 2021)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      During operation of a reciprocating compressor, its flapper valve opens to allow the passage of gases and closes by striking against the valve impact plate. This reed valve movement and impact is repeated billions of times. ...
