Performance of a rubble mound breakwater protecting Haydarpasa Port, Turkey, has been tested under tsunami attack by physical model tests conducted at Port and Airport Research Institute (Guler et al, 2015). It is aimed to understand dynamic force of the tsunami by conducting solitary wave tests (Arikawa, 2015). In this study, the main objective is to perform numerical modelling of solitary wave tests in order to verify accuracy of the CFD model IHFOAM, developed in OpenFOAM environment (Higuera et al, 2013...
Numerical Modeling of Waterflooding Experiments in Artificially Fractured and Gel Treated Core Plugs by Embedded Discrete Fracture Model of a Reservoir Simulation Toolbox
Kaya, Onur Alp; Durgut, İsmail; Canbolat, Serhat (2022-01-01)
© 2022, Society of Petroleum Engineers.The fluid flow dynamics of the matrix and fractures are significantly different from each other. Fractures are high-permeability flow channels that serve as the main flow units. On the other hand, the Matrix takes up the majority of the reservoir volume and is generally regarded as the main storage unit. The primary goal of this research is to investigate numerically the effects of fractures and polymer gel treatment on oil recovery during waterflooding of artificially...
Numerical modelling of free surface flows on round vertical slot fish passes
Koçal, Çiğdem; Köken, Mete; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
Dams and weirs built on the rivers block the flow and prevent fishes from migrating along the river. To overcome this problem, fish passes can be built at those blocked locations along the river by providing a gently sloped channel with low flow rates and enough water depth to allow fish to ascend. Considering the design process, understanding the hydrodynamics inside fish pass structures is important. By using three dimensional numerical simulations, parameters like flow rates, velocity, turbulence and wat...

Numerical modeling and experimental investigation of cell manipulation using acoustophoresis
Karaman, Alara; Özer, Mehmet Bülent; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-8-24)
Several diseases, such as sickle cell disease and cancer, can affect the properties of cells. Manipulation or separation of the altered cell is necessary to diagnose such diseases. Acoustophoresis, the migration of particles by using acoustic standing waves, is a promising technique for bio-particle manipulation. This thesis presents numerical modelling and experimental investigation of using acoustophoresis for cell manipulation purposes. First, the trajectories of the cells in an acoustophoretic chip are ...
