    Numerical Investigation of the Thermal Behavior of a System with a Partition Wall Incorporating a Phase Change Material

    Nisrine Hanchi*, Hamid Hamza, Jawad Lahjomri, Khalid Zniber, Abdelaziz Oubarra

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1227-1236, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.022530

    Abstract The work deals with the thermal behavior of a conventional partition wall incorporating a phase change material (PCM). The wall separates two environments with different thermal properties. The first one is conditioned, while the adjacent space is characterized by a temperature that changes sinusoidally in time. The effect of the PCM is assessed through a comparative analysis of the cases with and without PCM. The performances are evaluated in terms of dimensionless energy stored within the wall, comfort temperature and variations of these quantities as a function of the amount of PCM and its emplacement.

    Numerical Simulation of Dust Removal in the Cyclone Collector of a Straw Crusher Based on a Discrete Phase Model

    Zhuang Wu1,2, Chang Su1,2,*, Hua Xu1,2, Liu Wang1,2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1143-1157, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.022496

    Abstract The cyclone dust collector is an important subsystem of straw crushers used in agriculture. In the present study, a new type of dust collector with involute morphology is proposed to obtain better dust removal efficiency with respect to that of classical tangential and spiral dust collectors. A discrete phase model (DPM) method is used in synergy with a turbulence model, and the SIMPLE algorithm to simulate the flow field inside the dust collector and the related particle dynamics. It is shown that the internal flow field features a primary swirl, a secondary swirl and blockage effects. Moreover, for the involute… More > Graphic Abstract

    An Investigation into the Effects of Oil-Well Cement Expansion Agent on the Integrity of Cement Sheath

    Chunqin Tan1, Shenglai Guo2,3,*, Juanjuan Huang4

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1291-1300, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.022233

    Abstract Generally, the so-called expansion agent is very effective in eliminating all the micro-annuli that exist between the casing and the cement sheath or between the cement sheath and the formation. However, this approach can detrimentally affect the sealing ability of cement sheath if the expansion agent is used in an unreasonable way. For these reasons, in the present work, numerical simulations have been conducted to analyze the effect of elasticity modulus of cement sheath, the elasticity modulus of formation, the expansion rate of cement, the geo-stress on the micro-annulus caused by cement expansion, and the cement sheath expansion on the… More >

    An Experimental Study on the Reinforcement of Weakly-Consolidated Shallow Formation in Deep Water Using an Epoxy Resin-Based Fluid

    Leiju Tian1, Yuhuan Bu1,*, Huajie Liu1,*, Lingyun Zhao2,3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1215-1226, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.022219

    Abstract The mechanical properties of Portland cement differ from the weakly consolidated shallow formation in deep water. This results in undesired abrupt changes in the compressive strength and elastic modulus at the cement–formation interface. In this study, a water-borne epoxy resin was applied as a strengthening material to reinforce the weakly consolidated shallow formation and protect the cement sheath from potential failure. The mechanical properties of the unconsolidated clay were tested, including their changes with increases in the temperature and curing time. In addition, the effects of the seawater, cement slurry alkaline filtrate, and saltwater drilling fluid were evaluated. As confirmed… More >

    Numerical Analysis of Dynamical Effects Associated with a Plugging String in a Horizontal Well

    Guangsheng Liu1,2, Qingming Gan1,2, Wen Wu3, Haitao Yang1,2, Yiming Lv1,2, Wenhao Cui1,2, Wei Lin4,*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1203-1214, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.022022

    Abstract The finite element method has been applied to simulate the dynamics of a water plugging string in a complex horizontal well of a low-permeability oilfield. The force associated with the pipe string and the packer has been determined under the sucking action of the oil well pump. Such analysis has been conducted for a real drilling well, taking into account the process of lifting, lowering, unblocking and water plugging. Comparison between field measured data and simulation data indicates that the model is reliable and accurate. The packer creep effect under different pressure differences has also been investigated in the framework… More >

    On the Combination of Silica Fume and Ceramic Waste for the Sustainable Production of Mortar

    Zine El Abidine Rahmouni1,*, Mekki Maza1, Nadia Tebbal2, Messaouda Belouadah1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1083-1090, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.021970

    Abstract The combined use of silica fume (SF) and ceramic waste (CW) for the production of mortar is studied. Sand is replaced by 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% of CW while a fixed 5% percentage (% wt of cement) of SF is used. The results show that the best results are obtained by using silica fume and ceramic waste sand with 15% weight of sand and 5% wt of cement. With the addition of sand ceramic waste (SCW), the mortar compressive strength and density increase, while the porosity displays an opposite trend. The experimental analysis is complemented with theoretical considerations on… More > Graphic Abstract

    A Research on the Air Permeability of High Polymer Materials Used to Produce Sports Clothing Fabrics

    Jike Gao1, Fawei Li2,*, Shangjun Liu1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1173-1187, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.021140

    Abstract Composite fabrics based on Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) polymer displays several notable properties. They are waterproof, windproof, permeable to moisture and thermally insulating at the same time. In the present study, PTFE fibers are used as raw material to make fiber membranes. The film is formed by crisscrossing interconnected fiber filaments and the related air permeability: tensile creep characteristics and other properties are tested. The results show that the pore size, thickness, and porosity of the film itself can affect the moisture permeability of the film. The water pressure resistance of the selected fabric is 8.5 kPa, and the moisture permeability is… More >

    Performance Improved of a Lime and Hemp-Based Concrete through the Addition of Metakaolin

    Suzanne Daher*, Amar Benazzouk, Haïkel Ben Hamed, Thierry Langlet

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.5, pp. 1091-1113, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.020348

    Abstract This work describes in detail the experimental investigation of the physico-mechanical properties of nonstructural hemp concrete (usually used as insulating wall material) when the Air-lime based Tradial PF70 binder is partially replaced using Metakaolin. The objective is to reduce the amount of free Ca2+ ions in the binder as these are responsible for the degradation of vegetables particles and can therefore induce a loss of mechanical performances. In order to assess the effectiveness of pozzolanic reaction, amounts of 0%, 10%, and 20% vol. of Air-lime binder were replaced by the Metakaolin material, while testing the mechanical properties of concrete specimens… More >

    A Strategy to Control the Turbocharger Energy of a Diesel Engine at Different Altitudes

    Jianghua Cheng1,2, Xiaojian Li2, Lei Shi3,*, Kangbo Lu3, Ling Leng3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.4, pp. 959-975, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.023687

    Abstract Power deterioration is a major problem for diesel engines operating at high altitudes. This problem stems from the limited availability of turbocharger energy, which is not enough to increase the boost pressure to the required level. In this study, a control strategy is introduced in order to achieve engine power recovery at different altitudes. It is shown that as the altitude increases from 0 to 4500 m, the required boost pressure ratio increases from 2.4 to 4.3. The needed turbocharger energy should be increased accordingly by 240%, and the TCC (turbine characterization coefficient) should be adjusted within wide ranges. A… More >

    Bobo Luo1,*, Yunbin Xiong1, Zhuoyi Li2, Zhanqing Qu3, Fenggang Liu1, Tiankui Guo3, Zugui Yang1, Yina Shi1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.4, pp. 911-928, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.022761

    Abstract Due to its long lifespan and high sand-removal efficiency, gravel packing is one of the most applied sand control methods during the recovery of reservoirs with sanding problems. The blockage and retention of injected sand in a gravel pack is a complex process affected by multiple mechanisms. The majority of existing studies based on the phenomenological deep bed filtration (DBF) theory focused on the gravel pack’s overall permeability damage and failed to obtain the inner-pore particle distribution pattern. In this work, experiments and simulations were carried out to reveal the particle distribution in a gravel pack during flooding. In particular,… More >
