A Study of the Mechanisms Leading to Re-Ignition in a Worst Case Fire Scenario
(University of Maryland, 2000-06)
A systematic evaluation of the stability of a re-circulation zone behind a backward facing step under conditions expected in an aircraft engine nacelle has been conducted together with the evaluation of the effects of ...
Evaluation of a Large Eddy Simulation's Applicability to a Worst Case Fire Scenario
(University of California at Berkeley, 1999-12)
The applicability of a large eddy simulation to a small scale turbulent flow problem is assessed by comparing modeled results to those recovered from a physical apparatus with the same geometry. The computational domain ...
An Inverse Stefan Problem Relevant to Boilover: Heat Balance Integral Solutions and Analysis
(Thermal society, Belgrade, 2007-06)
Stefan problems relevant to burning oil-water systems are formulated. Two moving boundary sub-problems are defined: burning liquid surface and formation of a distillation (“hot zone”) layer beneath it. The basic ...
Accidental Burning of a Fuel Layer on a Waterbed: A Scale Analysis Study of the Heat Transfer Models Predicting the pre-Boilover Time and Scaling to Published Data
The paper concerns the heat transfer models of liquid fuel bed burning on water sublayer. The main efforts are stressed on the qualitative assessment of models available and their adequacy as well as on the prediction of ...
Smoke buildup and light scattering in a cylindrical cavity above a uniform flow
In this study, we use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and aerosol dynamics modeling to investigate the buildup of smoke and light scattering in a cylindrical cavity geometry, considered to be an idealized representation ...
