Flame Spread Modelling Using FDS4 CFD model
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2007)
This thesis examines the prediction of opposed flow flame spread in the Fire Dynamics Simulator version 4 (FDS4) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model by adapting the Lateral Ignition Flame Transport (LIFT) test ...
CFD Modelling of a Rotary Lime Kiln
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2010)
McDonalds Lime Ltd, situated in Otorohanga, New Zealand, operate two dry process rotary lime kilns producing burnt and hydrated lime for a range of industries including agriculture, roading, water treatment, gold mining ...
Limitations of Zone Models and CFD Models for Natural Smoke Filling in Large Spaces
(University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
This research report examines the use of zone modelling compared with CFD modelling to determine when zone model approximation is valid and when a CFD model might be required. A series of computer simulations with enclosures ...
Modelling of shear sensitive cells in stirred tank reactor using computational fluid dynamics
(University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2011)
Animal cells are often cultured in stirred tank reactors. Having no cell wall, these animal cells are very sensitive to the fluid mechanical stresses that result from agitation by the impeller and from the rising and ...
Aerodynamics of High Performance Bicycle Wheels
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2008)
This thesis presents the work undertaken to assess potential improvements in high performance bicycles. There are several wheel options available for elite riders to use in competition and this research has investigated ...
