Thermo-fluid-dynamic analysis of innovative synthetic jet devices

Summary: Synthetic jets are largely used, especially in the field of electronic cooling; indeed their heat transfer performances have been widely investigated and some of the work performed at University of Naples Federico II is herein described. Heat transfer coefficients have been enhanced through the design of innovative synthetic jet devices; in particular, twin synthetic jets, multi orifice nozzles, chevron exit nozzles are considered. Obviously, the heat transfer performances of both the classic and innovative devices are strictly related to their impinging flow field on the surface to be cooled. In this work the behavior of innovative impinging synthetic jets is experimentally investigated by using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and IR thermography leading to both time average and phase average flow velocity and heat transfer measurements. Three-dimensional coherent vortex structures, time-averaged and phase-averaged means, as well as turbulent statistics of flow fields and wall heat transfer data are presented and discussed.

Born in Naples (Italy) on 1963. Graduated in Mechanical Engineering with summa cum laude (1988). PhD in Aerospace Engineering (1991). Assistant professor (1992). Associate professor (1998). Actual position: Full Professor of Fluid Mechanics (2010) and Chair of the Aerospace engineering study courses, at the University of Naples Federico II, Department of industrial engineering, aerospace division. Scientific interests: two-beam and reference beam interferometry; velocimetry techniques such as PIV, Stereo-PIV and Tomo-PIV and their developments; heat transfer measurements with the infrared thermography technique, particularly focused on heat flux sensors and thermal image restoration; steady and unsteady natural convection; boundary layer diagnostics; transition detection and  flow field visualization from subsonic to hypersonic flow regimes; free and impinging synthetic jets; swirling jets; aerodynamic heating and its thermal visualization; thermal measurements in investment casting.

Visualization of conventional and combusting subsonic jet instabilities

Summary: Based on new information obtained for free microjets, this study is aimed to explain some phenomena of flame evolution at round and plane propane and hydrogen microjet combustion at presence of transverse acoustic field. It gives an overview of recent experimental results on instability and dynamics of jets at low Reynolds numbers and provides the recent advances in jet flow stability and combustion. Some clarification of the differences between top-hat and parabolic round and plane jet instability will also be given.

William S. Saric has been Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University since January 2005. He received his PhD in Mechanics from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1968 and has held appointments at Sandia Laboratories (Atomic and Fluid Physics, 1963-1966, 1968-1975), Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Engineering Science and Mechanics, 1975-1984), Tohoku University, Japan (Aeronautics and Astronautics, 1991-1992), and Arizona State University (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, 1984-2005).

He is a registered Professional Engineer in Virginia and was an Aerospace Engineering Evaluator for ABET.

He is a Fellow of AIAA, APS, and ASME. He received the AIAA Fluid Dynamics Award in 2003, the G.I. Taylor Medal from SES in 1993, the Scientific Achievement Award from AGARD (NATO) in 1996, and the Alumni Research Award from V.P.I.&S.U in 1984. In 2006, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering for “contributions to the fundamental understanding and control of shear-flow and boundary-layer transition”.

He has established two major wind tunnel research facilities and a flight research center at Texas A&M University and was the Director of the AFOSR/NASA National Center for Hypersonic Laminar-Turbulent Transition Research.

Most recently, he has conducted experimental, and flight research on stability, transition, and control of two-dimensional and three-dimensional boundary layers for subsonic aircraft, supersonic aircraft and reentry vehicle applications.
