Experimental and numerical investigation of formation damage caused by drilling fluids
İşcan, Abdullah Gürkan; Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, permeability impairment caused by drilling fluids and subsequent cleaning and permeability enhancement by back-flow were investigated by means of experimental and simulation studies. Permeability damage caused by three different drilling fluids was measured experimentally by core tests as a function of the filtration pressure and analyzed using a simulator describing the fines migration and retention in porous media. The pore throat plugging criteria for the three drilling fluids were determ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of vortex formation at multiple horizontal intakes
Yıldırım, Tuğçe; Göğüş, Mustafa; Köken, Mete; Department of Civil Engineering (2020-8)
Although most of the equations given in the literature for critical submergence are for symmetrical single intakes; in practice approach flow conditions are not mainly symmetrical. In this study, formation of the vortices in asymmetrical approach flow conditions was investigated for a multiple water intake structure composed of a reservoir and several pipe systems. Different scenarios were tested when some of the intake units were in operation whereas some others were not. The geometrical and hydraulic...
Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Torsionally Irregular RC Shear Wall Buildings with Rutherma Breakers
Yakut, Ahmet; Richard, Benjamin; Atanasiu, Gabriela M; Ragueneau, Frederic; Scheer, Stefen; Diler, Seref (Springer, 2015-01-01)
A challenging prototype building having irregularly placed shear walls in plan has been designed and tested on the AZALEE shaking table at the TAMARIS laboratory in CEA/Saclay. The research project, called ENISTAT, was funded by the SERIES project via Transnational Access to the CEA/Saclay facility in France. The project has three main objectives: (1) Study the behaviour of the mock-up under increasing bi-directional horizontal synthetic earthquake records; (2) Attempt to evaluate the experimental results u...
Experimental and numerical investigation of inter-ring gas pressures and blowby in a diesel engine
Dursunkaya, Zafer; Richardson, Dana E. (1993-01-01)
Inter-ring gas pressures and blowby in a diesel engine were investigated analytically and compared to experimental data measured at three engine speeds. Coupled simulations of ring dynamics, ring lubrication and inter-ring gas dynamics were carried out using the RINGPAK software, a code for the integrated analysis of ring pack performance and tribology. Inter-ring pressures and ring dynamics are known to have an important effect on the "blowback" mechanism of in-cylinder oil consumption, i.e. that of oil-la...
Experimental and numerical investigation of flow field around flapping airfoils making figure-of-eight in hover
Başkan, Özge; Alemdaroğlu, Hüseyin Nafiz; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2009)
The aim of this study is to investigate the flow field around a flapping airfoil making figure-of-eight motion in hover and to compare these results with those of linear flapping motion. Aerodynamic characteristics of these two-dimensional flapping motions are analyzed in incompressible, laminar flow at very low Reynolds numbers regime using both the numerical (Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD) and the experimental (Particle Image Velocimetry, PIV) tools. Numerical analyses are performed to investigate the...
