A numerical study of wave propagation in a confined mixing layer by eigenfunction expansions. Physics of Fluids A: Fluid Dynamics (), 5 (6), pp. – Hu, F. Q., Jackson, T., Lasseigne, D., and Grosch, C. E. (). Absolute–convective instabilities and their associated wave packets in a compressible reacting mixing layer. Numerical study of the flow and passive scalar transport in an open-channel confluence with a flat and a degraded fixed bed, Numerical simulation of non-uniform bed-load transport using a Lagrangian method and probabilistic Exner equation, Wave propagation in porous structures based on ISPH method, M. Ramos-Ortega. It is shown by using a Dispersion-Relation-Preserving finite difference scheme that it is feasible to perform direct numerical simulation of acoustic wave propagation problems. The finite difference equations of the scheme have essentially the same Fourier-Laplace transforms and hence dispersion relations as the original linearized Euler equations over a broad range of wavenumbers (here. One of the reasons for this is that when a seismic wave propagates through fluid‐saturated formations containing heterogeneities in the mesoscopic scale range, that is, at scales smaller than the prevailing wavelengths but larger than the typical grain size, it experiences significant attenuation and phase velocity dispersion due to a.

  This paper presents a numerical study of the dynamic compaction (DC) process, based on the finite element method, with the main attention on the role of water content on the soil response. Dynamic compaction is one of the most cost-effective techniques available for soil improvement, where the soil is compacted by repeatedly dropping free. The effect of the duct wall roughness on the shock wave attenuation is also studied. The main flow diagnostic used in the experimental part is either an interferometric study or alternating shadow–schlieren diagnostics. The photos obtained provide a detailed description of the flow evolution inside the ducts investigated. The principal application targeted is wave propagation in aeroacoustics in collaboration with Airbus SAS, where the source of inhomogeneity is the non-uniform flow, but the methods considered in this project will also apply to other variable material properties such as permittivity or sound speed. MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering (MechE) offers a world-class education that combines thorough analysis with hands-on discovery. One of the original six courses offered when MIT was founded in , MechE's faculty and students conduct research that pushes boundaries and provides creative solutions for the world's problems.

  A nonstandard wave equation, established by Galbrun in , is used to study sound propagation in nonuniform flows. Galbrun’s equation describes exactly the same physical phenomenon as the linearized Euler’s equations (LEE) but is derived from an Eulerian–Lagrangian description and written only in term of the Lagrangian perturbation of the displacement.

In this study, the NEWTANK (numerical wave tank) model [9, 10], which is a well-validated numerical model using a large eddy simulation, is employed to predict runup heights of nonlinear waves that passed a submerged structure in the surf zone. Reduced runup heights are predicted and their characteristics in terms of wave reflection.

Using integral equation methods, highly accurate numerical models have been developed for wave propagation over varying bathymetry in shallow water and for wave-body interaction in deep water [3, 4, 5].

However, the potential flow assumption limits. We discuss the application of non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) in the scaled boundary finite element method (SBFEM) for the solution of wave propagation problems at rather high frequencies.

A general numerical model study usually consists of the following components: Mathematical model is a simplified description of the geological problem, such as equations and boundary conditions. These governing equations of the model are often partial differential equations that are difficult to solve directly since it involves the derivative of the function, for example, the wave equation.

The results of direct numerical simulations of the flow generated in a plane duct by a pressure gradient which is the sum of two terms are described. The first term of the pressure gradient is constant in space but it oscillates in time whereas the second term is constant both in space and in time.

Therefore, a pulsating flow is generated, similar to that generated at the bottom of a. 5) Sound propagation was affected by non-uniform flow to a large extent. When the noise problem caused by turbulent flow was numerically studied, therefore, the impact of such non-uniform shear flow should be taken seriously so as to obtain correct results.

Due immediately behind the barrier, where the flow is highly unsteady and nonuniform in the other, placed further downstream from the barrier, the flow approaches a steady and uniform state.

It is also shown that most of the attenuation experienced by the transmitted shock wave occurs in the zone where the flow is highly unsteady. A two-dimensional numerical model is developed to study the propagation of a solitary wave in the presence of a steady current flow.

The numerical model is based on the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations with a k-ε turbulence closure scheme and an internal wave-maker method.
