  • Turbulent Flow over a Flexible Wall Undergoing a Streamwise Traveling Wavy Motion ?

    Shen, Lian; Zhang, Xiang; Yue, Dick K.P.; Triantafyllou, Michael S. (Cambridge University Press, 2003)
    Direct numerical simulation is used to study the turbulent flow over a smooth wavy wall undergoing transverse motion in the form of a streamwise travelling wave. The Reynolds number based on the mean velocity U of the ...
  • Three-dimensional flow structures and vorticity control in fish-like swimming ?

    Zhu, Q.; Wolfgang, M.J.; Yue, D.K.P.; Triantafyllou, M.S. (Cambridge University Press, 2002)
    We employ a three-dimensional, nonlinear inviscid numerical method, in conjunction with experimental data from live fish and from a fish-like robotic mechanism, to establish the three-dimensional features of the flow ...
  • Vortex-induced vibrations of a cylinder with tripping wires ?

    Hover, F.S.; Tvedt, H.; Triantafyllou, M.S. (Cambridge University Press, 2001)
    Thin wires are attached on the outer surface and parallel to the axis of a smooth circular cylinder in a steady cross-stream, modelling the effect of protrusions and attachments. The impact of the wires on wake properties, ...
