Abstract

The present proposal concerns a postdoctoral internship at Kobe University, institution with expertise in application of techniques of LDV (Laser Doppler Velocimetry) and SFV (Spatial Filter Velocimetry). The velocity profile of external flows across tube bundles affects the thermo-hydraulic performance and dynamic aspects of shell and tube heat exchangers, viz. heat transfer coefficient, pressure drop, and excitation and damping mechanisms of flow induced vibrations. The internship aims to provide to the postdoctoral fellow technical knowledge concerning these techniques, and also to allow the application of them for water single-phase and air-water two-phase flows across tube bundles. As main result of the activities performed during the internship period, it is expected a better knowledge about velocity profile of the external flow across tube bundles, which can allow the identification of excitation and damping mechanisms of flow induced vibrations, and also the development of accurate predictive methods for pressure drop, void fraction and heat transfer coefficient. This proposal has also the objective of complementing the education of the candidate, based on the postdoctoral internship in an internationally recognized research group. (AU)
