Experimental Study of the Flow in a Compact Heat Exchanger Channel with Embossed-type Vortex Generators
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
The isothermal flow in a model channel of plate-fin heat exchanger with periodically arranged embossed-like vortex generators is investigated. Velocity measurements are performed by LDA in the transitional regime (Reynolds number from 1000 up to 5000). Strong longitudinal vortices are observed downstream of each vortex generator. The vortex roll-up process is highlighted by the evolution of the velocity vector field in the cross section of the flow. The modifications of the vortex characteristics after successively encountered generators are investigated. This work shows most of the flow features which are known to produce heat transfer enhancement, and shows that these smooth shaped vortex generators are very promising for enhanced heat exchangers.

Contribution to the MHD modeling in low speed radial flux AC machines with air-gaps filled with conductive fluids Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureMENANA, Hocine; CHARPENTIER, Jean-Frederic; GABILLET, Céline (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2014)This work deals with the modeling of the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) phenomena in the air-gaps of low speed radial flux AC electrical machines filled with incompressible and electrically conductive fluids. The proposed model ...

Communication avec acteDEPARDAY, Julien; BOT, Patrick; HAUVILLE, Frédéric; AUGIER, Benoit; RABAUD, Marc; MOTTA, Dario; LE PELLEY, David (2016)While sailing offwind, the trimmer typically adjusts the downwind sail "on the verge of luffing", letting occasionally the luff of the sail flapping. Due to the unsteadiness of the spinnaker itself, maintaining the luff ...
