Singularity methods for modeling dynamic stall of lifting surfaces
Laws, Nicholas D., author
"Airfoil flow separation impacts a number of applications including wind and hydrokinetic turbines, gas turbine generators, and bio-inspired micro-aerial vehicles. In order to achieve maximum performance, some devices operate near the edge of flow separation, and others use dynamic flow separation advantageously. Engineers must take in to account the extreme and unsteady loads that result from flow separation. Currently, evaluating these forces requires full Navier-Stokes simulations, with run-times on the order of days. Therefore, there is a need for fast simulation methods to evaluate the forces on lifting surfaces in separated flows and facilitate engineering design. This work presents a novel unsteady vortex lattice method that takes into acount the effects of leading-edge flow separation, with run-times on the order of seconds to minutes. The ability of the method to capture dynamic stall is evaluated from a number of airfoil geometries and kinematics, with comparisons to Navier-Stokes solutions and experimental data. Specifically, we consider two classes of airfoil kinematics: rigid body motions (pitch-up-an-hold, pitch-up-hold-pitch-down); and dynamic trailing edge flap deflections. Results show that our method is accurate for rigid-body motions resulting in single dynamic stall events that exhibit formation and shedding of a large leading-edge vortex. Our model is also able to qualitatively capture trailing edge flap events. Surprisingly, although the model is able to capture these dynamic events, the model performs poorly in steady fully-separated flow scenarios, typically over predicting the lift force. This work provides a fast engineering design tool for evaluationg the forces on airfoils in separated flow. The mode is available open-source to the academic and engineering community. It is easily adaptable to different airfoil geometries and kinematics, which makes it broadly useful for a number of applications."

Nicotinamide cofactor ratios in engineered strains of Clostridium therocellum and Thermoanaerobacterium saccharolyticum
Beri, Dhananjay, author
"Clostridium therocellum and Thermoanaerobacterium saccharolyticum are bacteria under investigation for production of biofuels from plant biomass. T. saccharolyticum has been engineered to produce ethanol at high yield (>90% of theoretical) and titer (>70 g/l). Efforts to engineer C. thermocellum have not, to date, been as successful, and efforts are underway to transfer the ethanol production pathway from T. saccharolyticum to C. thermocellum. One potential challenge in transferring metabolic pathways is the possibility of incompatible levels of nicotinamide cofactors. These cofactors (NAD⁺, NADH, NADP⁺ and NADPH) ant their oxidation state are important in the context of microbial redox metabolism. In this study we directly measured the concentrations and reduced: oxidized ratios of these cofactors in a number of strains of C. thermocellum and T. saccharoyticum by using acid/base extraction and enzymatic assays. We found that cofactor ratios are maintained in a fairly narrow range, regardless of the metabolic network modifications considered. We have found that the ratios are similar in both organisms, which is a relevant observation in the context of transferring the T. saccharolyticum ethanol production pathway to C. thermocellum."

Study of creep of alumina-forming austenitic stainless steel for high-temperature energy applications
Afonina, Natalie Petrovna, author
"To withstand the high temperature (>700°C) and pressure demands of steam turbines and boilers used for energy applications, metal alloys must be economically viable and have the necessary material properties, such as high-temperature creep strength, oxidation and corrosion resistance, to withstand such conditions. One promising class of alloys potentially capable of withstanding the rigors of aggressive environments, are alumina-forming austenitic stainless steels (AFAs) alloyed with aluminum to improve corrosion and oxidation resistance. The effect of aging on the microstructure, high temperature constant-stress creep behavior and mechanical properties of the AFA-type alloy Fe-20Cr-30Ni-2Nb-5A1 (at.%) are investigated in this study. The alloy's microstructural evolution with increased aging time was observed prior to creep testing. As aging time increased, the alloy exhibited increasing quantities of fine Fe₂Nb Laves phase dispersions, with a precipitate-free zone appearing in samples with higher aging times. The presence of the L1₂ phase [gamma]'-Ni₃A1 precipitate was detected in the alloy's matrix at 760°C. A constant-stress creep rig was designed, built and its operation validated. Constant-stress creep tests were performed at 760°C and 35MPa, and the effects of different aging conditions on creep rate were investigated. Speciamens aged for 240 h exhibited the highest creep rate by a factor of 5, with the homogenized sample having the second highest rate. Samples aged for 2.4 h and 24 h exhibited similar low secondary creep rates. Creep tests conducted at 700°C exhibited a significantly lower creep rate compared to those at 760°C. Microstructural analysis was performed on crept samples to explore high temperature straining properties. The quantity and size of Fe₂Nb Laves phase and NiA1 particles increased in the matrix and on grain boundaries with longer aging time. High temperature tensile tests were performed and compared to room temperature results. The high temperature results were significantly lower when compared to room temperature values. Higher creep rates were correlated with lower yield strengths."
