Rapid Liquid Filling of a Pipe With Venting Entrapped Gas: Analytical and Numerical Solutions
Tijsseling, Arris S.; Hou, Qingzhi; Bozkuş, Zafer (ASME International, 2019-08-01)
The motion of liquid filling a pipeline is impeded when the gas ahead of it cannot escape. Entrapped gas will lead to a significant pressure build-up in front of the liquid column, which slows down the column and eventuall...
Fully Coupled Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics-Finite Element Method Approach for Fluid-Structure Interaction Problems With Large Deflections
Dincer, A. Ersin; Demir, Abdullah; Bozkuş, Zafer; Tijsseling, Arris S. (ASME International, 2019-08-01)
In this study, a combination of the smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) and finite element method (FEM) solving the complex problem of interaction between fluid with free surface and an elastic structure is studied. A br...
Dancing Manhole Cover:A Nonlinear Spring-Mass System
Tijsseling, Arris S; Vasconcelos, Jose G; Hou, Qingzhi; Bozkuş, Zafer (2019-07-19)
Dancing manhole covers are an intriguing and curious phenomenon but extremely dangerous for road vehicles as well as pedestrians. They are reported worldwide after heavy rainfall in urban environment. Stormwater systems ar...
Numerical and experimental investigation of damping in a dam-break problem with fluid-structure interaction
Demir, Abdullah; Dincer, Ali Ersin; Bozkuş, Zafer; Tijsseling, Arris S. (Zhejiang University Press, 2019-04-01)
There have been few experimental and numerical studies on damping effects in fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. Therefore, a comprehensive experimental study was conducted to investigate such effects. In experimen...
Dam Break Analyses of Berdan Dam with 2-D Models
Ünal, Çağla Irmak; Bozkuş, Zafer (2018-10-31)
Effect of Pier Inclination Angle on Local Scour Depth Around Bridge Pier Groups
Bozkuş, Zafer; OZALP, Murat Can; DINCER, A. Ersin (2018-10-01)
The primary objective of this study is to investigate experimentally local scours around bridge pier groups at various inclination angles of piers and also to develop empirical local scour depth equations. In the study, tw...
Experimental Investigation of a Slug Motion in an Inclined Pipe System
Dinçer, Ali Ersin; Bozkuş, Zafer (2018-09-14)
Liquid slugs trapped in a voided line may damage the pipe systems used in thermal power plants. Problems in those plants have been reported in the literature. In order to prevent the failures of the pipes, the impact pr...
Introducing a new computer code, H-Hammer, to solve fluid transients in pipe flow
Dalgıç, Hasan; Bozkuş, Zafer (2018-09-14)
Sudden change of flow conditions in a pipeline may cause the flow to become time dependent and would start an undesirable physical phenomenon called water hammer. These sudden changes can be caused by variety of scenari...
Optimization of Pipe Irrigation Networks
MARIM, Gokhan; Darama, Yakup; Bozkuş, Zafer (2018-09-01)
Pipe irrigation networks are the most important systems regarding a country's agricultural production and water conservation efforts. Today, irrigation for agriculture is the sector that leads to highest water consumption....
Prediction of Pressure Variation at an Elbow Subsequent to a Liquid Slug Impact by Using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics
DİNÇER, Ali Ersin; Bozkuş, Zafer; TIJSSELING, A. S. (2018-06-01)
Liquid slug flow driven by pressurized air in an inclined pipe with a downstream elbow is investigated numerically. As the liquid slug hits the elbow, the impact pressure and the associated force generated at the elbow may...
