Time-Space Fractional Governing Equations of Unsteady Open Channel Flow

Kavvas, M. L.
Ercan, Ali
In this study, the complete governing equations for unsteady open channel flow in fractional time-space are developed from the fractional continuity equation combined with the fractional motion equation, which is based on Newton's second law of motion, by accounting for the acceleration terms in order to render physically interpretable hydraulic terms. Then the kinematic wave and diffusion wave approximations to unsteady open channel flow with physically interpretable terms in fractional time-space are developed from the fractional continuity and motion equations. Because the powers of all of the derivatives in the conventional governing equations of unsteady open channel flow in integer time-space are one, these conventional equations are derived as special cases of the fractional governing equations when the fractional powers in the fractional equations approach unity.


Space and Time Fractional Governing Equations of Unsteady Overland Flow
Kavvas, M. Levent; Ercan, Ali; Tu, Tongbi (2021-07-01)
Combining fractional continuity and motion equations, the space and time fractional governing equations of unsteady overland flow were derived. The kinematic and diffusion wave approximations were obtained from the space and time fractional continuity and motion equations of the overland flow process. When the fractional powers of space and time derivatives go to 1, the fractional governing equations become the conventional governing equations of unsteady overland flow, and the conventional equations can be...
Numerical simulation of non-reacting turbulent flows over a constant temperature solid surface in regression
Karaeren, Cenker; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
In this study, an attempt is made to obtain convergent and stable solutions of the K-E turbulence model equations for non-reacting turbulent flows over an isothermal solid surface in regression. A physics based mathematical model is used to describe the flow and temperature field over the moving surface. The flow is assumed to be two-dimensional, unsteady, incompressible with boundary layer approximations. Parabolized form of the standard K-E equations is adopted to simulate turbulence in the flow. Regressi...
Streamwise oscillations of a cylinder beneath a free surface: Free surface effects on vortex formation modes
Bozkaya, Canan; Mironova, L. A.; Gubanov, O. I. (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-15)
A computational study of a viscous incompressible two-fluid model with an oscillating cylinder is investigated at a Reynolds number of 200 and at a dimensionless displacement amplitude of A = 0.13 and for the dimensionless forcing cylinder oscillation frequency-to-natural vortex shedding frequency ratios, f/f(0) = 1.5, 2.5, 3.5. Specifically, two-dimensional flow past a circular cylinder subject to forced in-line oscillations beneath a free surface is considered. The method is based on a finite volume discr...
Experimental investigation of flow characteristics of flexible wings with different stiffener orientations in linear translating motion
Karakaş, Hasan Halil; Perçin, Mustafa; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-8-12)
This study experimentally investigates the flow field around the wings, which first accelerate with constant acceleration from the rest and then perform a linear translating motion with constant velocity. Four wings, which are 3D-printed, with a bending stiffness in different directions are examined. The difference in bending stiffness values is achieved by placing stiffeners having different angles with the leading edge on the upper surface of the wing. The stiffeners are printed with wings to obtain well-...
Harmonic synchronization under all three types of coupling: Position, velocity, and acceleration
Tuna, Sezai Emre (2021-08-01)
Synchronization of identical harmonic oscillators interconnected via position, velocity, and acceleration couplings is studied. How to construct a complex Laplacian matrix representing the overall coupling is presented. It is shown that the oscillators asymptotically synchronize if and only if this matrix has a single eigenvalue on the imaginary axis. This result generalizes some of the known spectral tests for synchronization. Some simpler Laplacian constructions are also proved to work provided that certa...
