Offshore Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT) are used globally as a source of clean and renewable energy. Turbine efficiency can be improved by optimizing the geometry of the turbine blades. Turbines are generally designed in a way that its orientation is adjustable to ensure the wind direction is aligned with the axis of the turbine... More
In the present study, the flow over the stepped spillway was numerically investigated by using Flow3D model. The effect of step angle on different properties of Nappe flow regime such as the water surface profile, location of free-surface aeration inception, Froude number at the spillway’s toe, and pressure, flow velocity, air concentration and cavitation index were...

Vortex-induced vibration (VIV) of multiple circular cylinders elastically connected together in a side-by-side arrangement subject to steady flow is investigated numerically at a low Reynolds number of 150 and a mass ratio of 2. Simulations are conducted for two-, five- and ten-cylinder systems over a wide range of reduced velocities. The aim of the study... More
