Milanovic Publishes Two Papers at Conference in Japan
Ivana Milanovic, associate professor of mechanical engineering, CETA, published two research papers at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) – the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) – the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers (KSME) Joint Fluids Engineering Conference this month in Hamamatsu, Japan.
The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of information related to fluids engineering for engineers from around the world. The conference addresses a broad range of topics in analysis, numerical methods, and experiments in the area of fluid mechanics.
The research paper, ‘Wake Vortices in Jets in Cross-Flow,’ was coauthored with Dr. Khairul Zaman and Dr. Timothy Bencic of NASA Glenn Research Center. Unsteady wake vortices of JICF were investigated in order to (a) explore the effect of various excitation techniques, their parametric dependence, and impact on the flow field, and (b) provide detailed flow visualizations.
The research paper, ‘Effect of Reynolds Number on the Turbulent Flow Structure in the Near-Wall Region of an Impinging Round Jet,’ was coauthored with Dr. Khaled Hammad of Dantec Dynamics. Time-resolved particle image velocimetry and proper orthogonal decomposition analysis were used to study the effect of Reynolds number on a submerged water jet impinging normally on a flat surface.
Milanovic also coorganized the 9th Symposium on Fundamental Issues and Perspectives in Fluid Mechanics and the 4th Symposium on the Transport Phenomena in Mixing.
