Thermodynamics of Interfaces and Fluid Mechanics

List of Articles

Brownian motion in strongly fluctuating liquid

In this paper is reported how the Brownian motion of colloids (beads) immersed in a liquid can be affected by the local properties of the fluid and how, in turn, it can alter them. Near- critical binary mixtures are known to exhibit important concentration fluctuations when (...)

Basic smattering on combustion

The discovery of fire has contributed to the emergence of humanity. It is then the scientific mastery of this same combustion that allowed the man to propel himself on the moon or more modestly to operate the engine of your car. Who was not fascinated by fireworks, a candle (...)

Study of the flow three-dimensional and instationary in a rotor of the Savonius wind turbine

The purpose of this study is to develop a computational code for solving the equations governing the flow of fluids in a vertical axis wind turbine. In order to check the effectiveness of our code, we made an application on the Savonius rotor. The equations that define the (...)

Interfaces and critical fluids

For pure substances, the liquid-vapor phase separation interface disappears at the critical point. This property and others have attracted the interest of many scientists. This article is an update of the text of the invited conference on Critical Fluids presented at a (...)

Some Aspects of Turbulence in Discrete Mechanics

The discrete mechanics formalism and equations are considered in the present work in order to establish the role played by representative motion equations on the study of turbulence in fluids. In particular, a set of differences related to the turbulent pressure, the (...)

LES of turbulent non-isothermal two-phase flows within a multifield approach

Safety issues in nuclear power plant involve complex turbulent bubbly flows. To predict the behavior of these flows, the two-fluid approach is often used. Nevertheless, this model has been developed for the simulation of small spherical bubbles, considered as a dispersed (...)
