    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Commonly, the development of scientific computing software follows a stencilbased approach: the numerical methods and algorithms are introduced into computing systems through stencil data structures and sweeps (i.e. ...
  • Detailed prediction of fluid-solid coupled phenomena of turbulent flow through reed valves 

    González Acedo, Ignacio; Naseri, Alireza; Rigola Serrano, Joaquim; Pérez Segarra, Carlos David; Oliva Llena, Asensio (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The operation of self-actuated valves in suction and discharge processes plays a crucial role in the thermal efficiency and structural reliability of hermetic reciprocating compressors. The present work provides a thorough ...
  • Assessment and comparison of a recent kinematic sensitive subgrid length scale in Hybrid RANS-LES 

    Pont Vilchez, Arnau; Trias Miquel, Francesc Xavier; Revell, Alistair; Oliva Llena, Asensio (Springer Nature, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A recent kinematic sensitive subgrid length scale, Δlsq, initially developed for LES applications, is now considered for DES. Even though it is presented as a subgrid length scale, instead of a grey area mitigation (GAM) ...
  • Numerical study of droplet deformation in shear flow using a conservative level-set method 

    Amani, Ahmad; Balcázar Arciniega, Néstor; Castro González, Jesús; Oliva Llena, Asensio (2019-11-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper is concerned with a numerical study on the behavior of a single Newtonian droplet suspended in another Newtonian fluid, all subjected to a simple shear flow. Conservative finite-volume approximation on a collocated ...
  • An energy-preserving level set method for multiphase flows 

    Valle Marchante, Nicolás; Trias Miquel, Francesc Xavier; Castro González, Jesús (2020-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The computation of multiphase flows presents a subtle energetic equilibrium between potential (i.e., surface) and kinetic energies. The use of traditional interface-capturing schemes provides no control over such a dynamic ...
