Article
Heat transfer enhancement due to thermomagnetic convection arising in non-isothermal electrically non- conducting ferrofluids placed in an external magnetic field is reviewed with the emphasis on realistic applications. It is shown that due to a complex composition of such fluids numerous internal physical processes can lead to directly opposite he...

Gas bubbles present in liquids underpin many natural phenomena and human-developed technologies that improve the quality of life. Since all living organisms are predominantly made of water, they may also contain bubbles—introduced both naturally and artificially—that can serve as biomechanical sensors operating in hard-to-reach places inside a livi...

The Eulerian multi-fluid mathematical model is developed to describe the marine atmospheric boundary layer laden with sea spray under high wind condition of a hurricane. The model considers spray and air as separate continuous interacting turbulent media and employs the multi-fluid E – ε closure. Each phase is described by its own set of coupled co...

Ferrofluids are strongly magneto-polarisable nanofluids. Their flows can be non-intrusively controlled by applying an external magnetic field. One of their prospective applications is as a heat carrier in thermal management systems operating in conditions where natural convection is suppressed due to extreme confinement (microelectronics) or reduce...

A weakly nonlinear stability analysis of shear flows based on amplitude expansion is re-examined. While it has been known that the condition required to define the coefficients of the resulting Stuart–Landau series representing the nonlinear temporal evolution of the most amplified Fourier component of a disturbance is not unique, we show that it c...
Chapter
Specific features of thermogravitational instability and thermogravitational flows arising in ferrofluids are discussed. It is shown that in contrast to ordinary fluids, the characteristics of convection setting in ferrofluids depend on the history of its storage and the conditions of experiment. This is found to be due to a complex composition of...

Article
Experimental observations of an azimuthal electrolyte flow driven by Lorentz force in a thin annular fluid layer placed on top of a magnet show that it develops a robust vortical system near the outer cylindrical wall. It appears to be a result of instabilities developing on a background of steady axisymmetric flow. Therefore, the goal of this pape...

In the oceanographic literature, short-crestedness of waves is often assumed to be the same feature as directionality, as opposed to long-crested waves which are unidirectional. Indeed, superposition of linear long-crested waves will create an interference pattern of modulated long crests. Lateral modulation of the long crests, however, is also a n...

Accurate modeling of sea spray under high-wind conditions is essential for improving intensity forecast of hurricanes or severe storms. It has been shown that the presence of water droplets in the vortex of hurricane leads to a significant reduction in turbulent intensity and consequently to a sharp flow acceleration. In this study, several mathema...

Two mathematical models are proposed detailing the influence of ocean spray on vertical momentum transport under high-wind conditions associated with a hurricane or severe storm.
