    Previous successful projects covered diverse topics of engineering as well as of fundamental importance. The outcome of these projects has appeared in seminal Journals and major conferences. 
    The research work involves modelling the flow of multiphase mixtures - either solid-particle-laden-gases or  vapour-droplet mixtures, e.g. moist air, - through a combination of numerical calculations (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and theoretical analysis. This is an interdisciplinary research area requiring synthesis of ideas from several fields such as fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and, heat and mass transfer. Currently experiments are being conducted on condensation in microchannels and direct contact condensation.

Examples of previous successful projects include : 

  • Formulation of a unified theory and an extremely efficient calculation method of particle deposition in a turbulent flow field
  • Fundamental studies on non-equilibrium homogeneous condensation (with addition of energy in transonic flow)
  • Fundamental studies on interphase transport of mass, momentum and energy
  • Application of CFD for predicting oscillating and moving shock waves in two-phase mixtures
  • Development of CFD codes for predicting the flow of wet steam
  • Fundamental studies of relaxation gas dynamics and structure of shock waves in vapour-droplet flow
  • Development of a theory and tools for interpreting total pressure and total temperature in multiphase flow
  • Development of a new theory (based on Monte-Carlo simulation) of nucleation of water droplets in large, multistage steam turbines responsible for 80% of world-wide electricity generation. 
 
Guha's Generalized Equations for Particle Transport and Deposition
The equations are valid for laminar to turbulent flow, and, for wide range of particle size (nanoparticles to large millimeter-sized particles). The theory includes the effects of inertia, Brownian diffusion, thermophoresis, turbophoresis, electrical and other body forces, gravity, shear-induced lift, surface roughness, and corrections due to Knudsen effect or finite slip Reynolds number. These equations reduce to the well known relations in the appropriate limits. Thus, for example, Fick's law of diffusion or the currently popular equations for the motion of nanoparticles can be viewed as subsets of the unified advection-diffusion theory derived. Experiments show that the deposition velocity varies differently with the size of particle in different ranges of particle size and it can vary by several orders of magnitude as particle size is altered. In the past, separate theories were needed in different particle size ranges and it would have been difficult to apply the theories to flow situations that are different from the situations for which the parameters of the theories were tuned. The unified advection-diffusion theory thus settles the quest over previous fifty years in the field for a physics-based explanation for the observed complex behaviour of particle transport.     J.

Unified Theory of Turbulent Transport by Abhijit Guha


A New (Stochastic) Theory of Nucleation of Water Droplets in Multistage Steam Turbine Used Globally for Electricity Generation
Non-equilibrium Condensation with  Stochastic Fluctuation due to Wake Segmentation in a Multistage Machine
Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society
The essence of the theory is that large-scale static temperature fluctuations caused by the segmentation of blade-wakes by successive blade-rows have a dominating influence on nucleation and droplet growth in turbines.  "True" turbulent fluctuations (due to shear-layer unsteadiness, etc.) are probably less important and are ignored.  A Lagrangian frame of reference is adopted and attention is focussed on a large number of individual fluid particles during their passage through the turbine.  Homogeneous nucleation and growth of droplets in each fluid particle is assumed to be governed by classical theories.  All fluid particles are assumed to experience the same pressure variation but those particles passing close to the blade surfaces suffer greater entropy production and therefore have higher static temperatures than those which pursue near-isentropic paths through the central portions of the blade passages.  Particles which suffer high loss therefore nucleate later in the turbine than those which experience little dissipation.  Condensation is thus viewed as an essentially random and unsteady phenomenon as the dissipation experienced by a fluid particle in one blade-row is assumed to be uncorrelated with its previous history.  On a time-averaged basis, the condensation zone is spread over a much greater distance in the flow direction than a simple steady-flow analysis would indicate and may encompass several blade-rows depending on the number of stages in the machine.  Predicted droplet size spectra show broad, highly-skewed distributions with large mean diameters and sometimes slight bimodality.  These are all characteristics of experimentally measured spectra in real turbines.  Conventional, steady-flow calculation methods, which predict a fixed Wilson point in a specific blade-row and a near-monodispersed droplet population, cannot reproduce any of these characteristics.

Relaxation Processes, and Steady and Moving Shock Wave Structure in Two-Phase Vapour-Droplet Flow

CFD prediction of moving wet shock waves Abhijit GuhaThe structures of stationary and moving fully and partly dispersed shock waves in vapour-droplet, two-phase flow are studied. The relaxation processes corresponding to the interphase transfer of mass, momentum and energy are analyzed. Pure substances only are considered, but, unlike most previous work, the droplet population is allowed to be polydispersed. It is shown how the effects of thermal relaxation for such a mixture can be elegantly incorporated into the analysis.
    Three types of fully dispersed wave are identified. Type I waves are dominated by thermal relaxation and an approximate analytical solution is presented which gives results in close agreement with  accurate numerical solutions of the governing equations. The analysis predicts some unexpected behaviour of the thermodynamic variables and demonstrates the correct scaling parameters for such flows. An approximate analysis is also presented for Type II waves, dominated by both velocity and thermal relaxation. Type III waves, where all three relaxation processes are important, are of little practical significance and are only briefly discussed. Partly dispersed waves are also considered and the results of a numerical simulation of the relaxation zone are presented. A linearised solution of this problem is possible but, unlike other relaxing gas flows, does not give good agreement with the more exact numerical calculations.
    The apparent discontinuity in the speed of sound in a vapour-droplet mixture as the wetness fraction tends to zero has been responsible for some confusion in the literature. This problem is resolved and it is shown that the transition from the two-phase equilibrium to the single-phase frozen speed of sound is continuous.
    Rankine-Hugoniot relations for wet vapour giving jump conditions across shock waves have been derived. Different types of transition have been identified (JFM1992, PhysFluids1994). Mechanisms of entropy production inside a shock wave in wet vapour have been discussed. The unsteady processes through which a partly-dispersed shock wave or a fully-dispersed wave attains its stable, steady structure have been computed.
   
CFD solutions include:
  • Structure of fully dispersed wave (These waves are automatically generated by numerical integration of appropriate equations. The mathematical theory of the growth of instability, showing why such waves exist in reality and why such numerical solutions work, has been developed.)
  • Structure of partly dispersed waves (aerodynamic shock wave followed by a relaxation zone)
  • Moving shock waves with relaxation gas dynamics effects arising from interphase transport of mass, momentum and energy.
Analytical theories include:
  • Derivation of the appropriate time scales involved in interphase transport of mass, momentum and energy.
  • Derivation of the various speeds of sound in a two-phase vapour-droplet mixture.
  • Analytical solutions for the structure of three types of fully dispersed waves.
  • The mathematical theory of the growth of instability, showing why fully-dispersed waves exist in reality.
  • Analytical solution for the structure of partly dispersed shock waves.
  • Jump conditions and comprehensive flow map for various types of shock waves, including novel solutions involving complete evaporation of the dispersed phase.
  • Mathematical theory showing a continuous transition between frozen and equilibrium speeds of sound.
  • Analytical relations for the unsteady developent of structure of shock waves.

Time-Marching Computation of Steady and Unsteady Wet Steam Flow (Nonequilibrium Condensation Shock)

An unsteady time-marching technique has been developed that can be employed for any type of wet steam flow: nucleating or non-nucleating, subcritical or supercritical, steady or unsteady. It is robust, accurate, simple and fast. The scheme uses a novel technique that performs the integration of the droplet growth equations along the fluid path lines rather than the more usual method which involves freezing the gas dynamic flowfield instantaneously in order to perform the integration. This allows simultaneous solution of all the relevant equations and thus the correct coupling between the vapour-phase gasdynamics and the relaxation effects due to the droplets is maintained. The scheme maintains a polydispersed droplet spectrum which is essential for modelling the nucleation zone accurately. Calculations based on the present scheme show good agreement with experimental measurements, steady and unsteady, reported in the literature.
    It is also shown how the unsteady condensation process due to supercritical heat addition may give rise to a polydispersed droplet spectrum. This has a direct bearing on a possible explanation of the poly-dispersity measured in steam turbines: a polydispersity which cannot be predicted with existing steady flow calculation methods.

A Unified Theory for the Interpretation of Total Pressure and Total Temperature in Two-Phase Flow
Proceedings of Royal Society         ASME J Fluids Engineering
A unified theory on the interpretation of total pressure and total temperature in multiphase flows has been developed. The present approach applies to both vapour-droplet mixtures and solid particle laden gases, and at subsonic as well as supersonic velocities. It is shown here that the non-equilibrium processes occurring in the vicinity of a stagnation point are important. These processes may be responsible for the generation of entropy and affect the pressure and temperature at the stagnation point. They should be properly considered while inferring, say, flow velocity or entropy generation from Pitot measurements. By proper non-dimensionalization of the relevant parameters, it is possible to find a single (theoretically obtained) calibration curve for the total pressure as a function of the particle size, which is almost independent of the constituents of the multiphase mixture and of the flow conditions. The calibration curve is a plot of a pressure recovery factor versus Stokes number and specifies the total pressure under different nonequilibrium conditions. The total pressure, predicted by the present theory, varies monotonically between the two limiting values : the frozen total pressure (when there is no interphase mass, momentum and energy transfer in the decelerating flow towards the stagnation point) and the equilibrium total pressure (when the dispersed phase, either the liquid droplets or the solid particles, is always at inertial and thermodynamic equilibrium with the continuous vapour phase). The equilibrium total pressure is always higher than the frozen total pressure. It is shown that the equilibrium total temperature, on the other hand, may be higher or lower than the frozen total temperature. In addition, unlike the case of total pressure, the calibration curve for total temperature is not so universal, and the total temperature under nonequilibrium conditions is not necessarily bounded between the frozen and equilibrium values. It is further shown that the entropy of a multiphase mixture has to be carefully interpreted and is not unequivocally related to the total pressure even in steady, adiabatic flow.
    An explicit analytical theory as well as comprehensive numerical solutions of the governing equations are available.

Thermal Choking due to Nonequilibrium Condensation
ASME J Fluids Engineering
A theory of thermal choking due to non-equilibrium condensation in a nozzle is presented. An explicit equation for the critical quantity of heat in condensing flow has been derived. The equation is of general validity and applies to vapour-droplet flow with or without a carrier gas. It has been usually assumed in the literature that the classical gas dynamics result for the critical quantity of heat applies in condensing flow as well. The classical result is, however, obtained by considering external heat addition to an ideal gas in a constant area duct. In this paper it is shown that the area variation across the condensation zone (although small) and the depletion in the mass of vapour as a result of condensation have profound effects on the critical quantity of heat. The present equation (derived from an integral, control-volume approach) agrees very well with results from full time-marching solution of the non-equilibrium, differential gas dynamic equations. The classical gas dynamics result, on the other hand, seriously underpredicts the critical heat for condensing flow in nozzles (by a factor of three in the example calculation presented).

One uniqueness of the present study is that it does not simply determine the final solution in a complex geometry by the application of CFD as a black-box tool, instead it seeks to attribute the final solution to more elemental aspects of the specified problem thereby enhancing understanding.

Gas Turbine Performance and Optimisation

A systematic methodology for the thermodynamic optimisation of civil bypass engines (turbofan or advanced propulsors) has been developed.
Guha's Methodology: Computation of performance of a given gas turbine engine is well established. The research work of A Guha addresses the complementary question - how to design the best gas turbine engine for a specified task. A new systematic methodology for optimisation of civil turbofan engines has been developed. The work addresses the importance of non-perfect gas properties. Analytical formulae have been derived for determining optimum fan pressure ratio, optimum ratio of cold and hot jet velocities, optimum ratio of mean jet velocity and aircraft speed, etc. The work establishes new concepts such as the existence of true thermodynamic optimum values of the bypass ratio and the maximum temperature in the cycle. The work is interdisciplinary in nature, including economics. As an example, it is shown how to determine the optimum specific thrust (for a given mission) from a direct engine cost (DEC) analysis.
    In the new methodology, the optimum combination of overall parameters (FPR, OPR, TET, B) is determined concurrently that maximizes the overall efficiency while maintaining the specific thrust at a predetermined value established from a direct operating cost (DOC) analysis.  This is very different from the parametric studies (available in the literature) where the effects of the variation of a single variable are calculated numerically while all other variables are kept fixed - therefore at their non-optimum levels. The parametric studies are thus not capable of finding the true optimum combination.  Moreover, often such parametric studies may involve a large excursion in the value of the specific thrust which is unacceptable for a particular mission. So, even with the availability of a computational package, the present methodology offers a more logical approach.  Additionally, several, simple and explicit, new analytical relations have been derived here that accelerate the optimisation process and offer physical insight.  With these, the optimisation can be undertaken with hand calculations at the initial phase of a real design process and can also be treated realistically in a textbook.
