Main project: Electric charge generation and transport in turbulent flows
Supervisor(s): Miltiadis Papalexandris
The general objective of this thesis is to advance the state-of-the-art in the mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of turbulent flows involving electrically charged fluids. The specific goals of the proposed research are the following. Firstly, the development of efficient numerical methodologies and related parallel computer codes for the prediction of electric charge transport in turbulent flows. Secondly,the development of a computational model for charge generation at fluid – solid wall interfaces. Then, the study of electric charge generation and transport in real-life industrial turbulent flows via numerical simulations, and comparisons with experiments. Finally, based on the findings, the improvement of safety for flows of electrically charged fluids that are used in the process industries.
