This paper presents the numerical predictions of hydrodynamic and thermal characteristics of nanofluid flow through backward facing step. The governing equations are solved through the finite volume method, as described by Patankar, by taking into account the associated boundary conditions. Empirical relations were used to give the effective dynamic viscosity and the thermal conductivity of the nanofluid. Effects of different key parameters such as Reynolds number, nanoparticle solid volume fraction and nanoparticle solid diameter on the heat transfer and fluid flow are investigated. The results are discussed in terms of the average Nusselt number and streamlines.

In this study the main causes of the failure of a GE-F9 second stage turbine blade were investigated. The stress distribution of the blade which has 6 cooling vents in three modes (with full cooling, closure of half of the cooling channels, and without cooling) was studied. A three dimensional model of the blade was built and the fluid flow on the blade was studied using the FVM method. The stress distribution due to centrifugal forces applied to the blade, temperature gradients and aerodynamic forces on the blade surface was calculated by the finite element model. The results show that the highest temperature gradient and as a result the highest stress value occurs for the semi-cooling state at the areas near the blade root and this status is true for the full cooling mode for the regions far from the root. However, the field observations showed that the failure occurred for the blade with the semi-cooling state (due to closure of some of the channels) at areas far from the root. It is discussed that the main factor of the failure is not the stress values being maximum because in the state of full cooling mode (the state with the maximum stress values) the temperature of the blade is the lowest state and as a result the material properties of the blade show a better resistance to phenomena like hot corrosion and creep.

Fluid flow in hydraulic systems, fittings, and piping causes hydraulic losses due to the change of flow direction and friction in the fluid. The main consequence of the resulting losses is the increase in the overall pressure gradient of the circuit. The paper is focused on the investigation of valve losses and the determination of resistance coefficients, the definition of which depends on the valve type. Methods of determination are of two types, i.e. experimental methods and mathematical methods. In the case of experimental methods, the procedures prescribed by the standards and regulations must be respected. Mathematical methods are related to defining an appropriate mathematical model and numerical approach. Both methods are applied to the ball valve and model verification is performed at the same time. The output of the thesis is the methodology for determination of resistance coefficients of valves with other diameters and other flowing media based on verified mathematical modeling.
