    Jofre Cruanyes, Lluís (springer-Verlag, 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Motivated by the sizable increase of available computing resources, large-eddy simulation of complex turbulent flow is becoming increasingly popular. The underlying filtering operation of this approach enables to represent ...
  • A numerical approach for non-Newtonian two-phase flows using a conservative level-set method

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A finite-volume based conservative level-set method is presented to numerically solve the non-Newtonian multiphase flow problems. One set of governing equations is written for the whole domain, and different phases are ...

    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 ...
  • A dynamic load balancing method for the evaluation of chemical reaction rates in parallel combustion simulations 

    Muela Castro, Jordi; Borrell Pol, Ricard; Ventosa Molina, Jordi; Jofre Roca, Lluís; Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol; Pérez Segarra, Carlos David (Elsevier, 2019-08-15)
    Article

    The development and assessment of an efficient parallelization method for the evaluation of reaction rates in combustion simulations is presented. Combustion simulations where the finite-rate chemistry model is employed ...
  • Thermal and fluid dynamic analysis of Direct Steam Generation Parabolic Trough Collectors 

    Ferchichi, Souha; Kessentini, Hamdi; Morales Ruíz, Sergio; Rigola Serrano, Joaquim; Bouden, Chiheb; Oliva Llena, Asensio (Elsevier, 2019-09-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Direct Steam Generation (DSG) has attracted considerable attention in comparison with conventional technologies based on Heat Transfer Fluids (HTF) for electricity generation due to its higher temperatures. In this context, ...
  • A level-set model for mass transfer in bubbly flows 

    Balcázar Arciniega, Néstor; Antepara Zambrano, Óscar; Rigola Serrano, Joaquim; Oliva Llena, Asensio (2019-08-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A level-set model is presented for simulating mass transfer or heat transfer in two-phase flows. The Navier-Stokes equations and mass transfer (or heat transfer) equation are discretized using a finite volume method on a ...
