The main purpose of this work is to analyze the usefulness of the active cell model (ACM) developed by the author of this article to estimate the flow field around a single-bladed vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) with the Darrieus-type rotor. The obtained flow velocity fields were compared with the experimental values taken from the literature ava...

... ACM model has been implemented in the commercial solver, ANSYS Fluent, which uses the Cartesian coordinate system. The geometrical model of the rotor tested in this work is related to the Cartesian coordinate system as shown in Figures 2-4. In the Cartesian coordinate system, the components of aerodynamic forces are expressed as: ...

The protective effect of astragaloside IV (AS-IV) on myocardial injury after myocardial infarction has been reported. However, the underlying mechanism is still largely unknown. We established a myocardial infarction model in C57BL/6 mice and injected intraperitoneally with 10 mg/kg/d AS-IV for 4 weeks. The cardiac function, myocardial fibrosis, an...

Effective thermal conductivity of a porous medium is a key thermos-physical parameter in characterizing heat transfer properties in many applications. In this study, a new cell model to predict the porous medium effective thermal conductivity is developed by treating the cells as being variables in size in relation to porosity. In the new model, th...

Interstitial fibrosis is a typical feature of all progressive renal diseases. The process of fibrosis is frequently coupled with the presence of pro-fibrotic factors and inflammation. Naringin is a dihydroflavone compound that has been previously reported to exhibit anti-fibrotic effects in the liver, where it prevents oxidative damage. In the pres...

Chromatographic separation processes need efficient simulation methods, especially for nonlinear adsorption isotherms such as the Langmuir isotherms which imply the formation of concentration shocks. The focus of this paper is on the space–time conservation element/solution element (CE/SE) method. This is an explicit method for the solution of syst...

We present an extension of the dynamic electrical model, which enable us to explain some important features of the perovskite solar cells (PSC), like the shape of the hysteresis and the appearance of the ’bump’ in the so called reverse scan, without requiring any additional assumptions. We give analytical expressions in terms of the Lambert’s funct...

... Vectors of aerodynamic forces and velocities (a) and ACM concept (b)The idea of the Actuator Cell Model (ACM) lies in the possibility of studying the velocity field in the rotor area at a given function of aerodynamic blade loads. The previous two publications of the author showed the effectiveness of this method for the case of a one-bladed H-Darrieus rotor(Rogowski, 2018;Rogowski and Rogowska, 2018). In this article, the latest particle image velocimetry (PIV) studies byTescione et al. (2016) are used to compare the results obtained with the ACM model. ...

This paper analyzes the instantaneous and averaged velocity field in the area of the Darrieus wind turbine. The analyzed two-dimensional rotor model consists of two NACA 0018 airfoils and a rotating shaft. The working parameters of the rotor correspond to moderate aerodynamic loads of the blades. The research has been carried out with an innovative method called the Actuator Cell Model. The initial results obtained were compared with the author's earlier results obtained with the SST k-ω model and with experimental studies taken from the literature.
