Thermal Management of Electric Vehicles and Heat Pumps for Automotive Applications
Topic Overview:

The student will work with results of two finished project Themasys and Ecohep. The main focus will be application of projects results on new issues or processing the project data for computation model validation.

Themasys: The aim of the two-year project is to create a complete system for testing the components of the systems for active thermal management of electric vehicles. This is a very current area, which is addressed by a large number of automotive companies, reflecting the high demands of customers. The components of the system that will be created during the project will be the thermal simulator of the battery, the cabin simulator including the HVAC unit and the data acquisition system. An integral part and one of the outputs of the project will be a set of procedures for component testing using the BUT climate chamber, which will also be the result with the main potential for commercial use.

Ecohep: The aim of the two-year project is to develop a new compact reversible heat pump system (air conditioning/heating) for automotive applications using HC based refrigerant. The entire system will first be designed at a thermodynamic level using simulation models and virtual validation to find the optimum amount of refrigerant in the system to minimize its amount. Next, a functional sample from power and economically relevant components will be assembled and the system will be validated by a series of climatic tests in the BUT climate chamber to confirm its operational parameters. The project will also include a proposal for managing the entire system and plan for its integration into vehicles.

Quality of Fuel Atomization of Small Pressure-Swirl Atomizers
Topic Overview:

Atomization is a process of liquid disintegration into small fragments - drops. A flow of atomized liquid is called “spray” and it is generated in a spraying device - atomizer. This conversion is essential for many industrial applications such as combustion, water cooling, spray coating or food processing. Atomization can by carried out by variety of ways and different forces act to atomize the liquid: mechanical, aerodynamic or ultrasonic. A design of the atomizer depends on its application and operating conditions. The most common type are pressure atomizers due to their simple design. The simplest atomizer type is a plain orifice type whereas pressure-swirl type is more frequently used. This work is focused on the evaluation of spray characteristics of pressure-swirl atomizers for a small-sized jet engine and on possibility to improve the spray. The nonintrusive method Phase Doppler Anemometry was used to measure droplets characteristics such as their velocity and size. Any improvement in spraying performance leads to an increase of the combustion chamber efficiency and any fluctuations may harm the atomization as well as the combustion itself.

Task:

Tentative work plan (we may change it after an interview, where I will try to match your skils with our tasks):
1) Familiarisation with our department & colleagues, visit of laboratories at the department (to see what research is done there, what equipment, measurement devices, projects etc.) (1 week)
2) Training on the measurement of spray from fuel nozzles using optical measurement methods, basics, study of the topic, tasks to test the understanding of the topic (1 week)
3) A literature review on a specific topic in Two-Phase gas-liquid flow (1 week)
4) Experiments on the fuel atomization of pressure-swirl or twin-fluid atomizers; participation on optical measurement of spray from small fuel nozzle, the measurement is done with Phase-Doppler anemometry and high-speed camera. Further possibility is explanation of measured data, their transfer and manipulation (2-3 weeks)
5) A script preparation for various data analyses, and/or statistical and physical processing of measured data in MatLab, Excel… (2-3 weeks); alternatively a composition of equations and preparation of a procedure for calculation of droplet balistics
6) Result analysis (effect of different factors on spray and  two-phase flow) and final report. (1 week)

Development of Energy Efficient Twin-Fluid Atomizer for Effective Post Combustion CO2 and NOx Removal
Topic Overview:

Ever increasing energy demands along with limited availability of alternative and renewable technologies requires using of fossil fuels in today’s world. Burning of fossil fuels for energy requirements results in emission of greenhouse flue gasses such as CO2 and NOx. Post combustion-capture of primary  greenhouse gases is one of the methods reducing global warming. This task is provided by a twin-fluid atomizer (atomization is a process of liquid disintegration into small fragments – drops, a flow of atomized liquid is called “spray” and it is generated in a spraying device - atomizer). It produces a spray of  aqueous ammonia solutions which scrubs CO2 from flue gasses by chemical absorption process. This project is focused on developing of such a twin-fluid atomizer. Achieving fine spray with 50 μm mean diameter and a narrow drop size distribution is required for effective and controlled scrubbing process.  Systematic study of suitability of air-assisted atomization methods with low atomizing gas consumption and advanced atomizer design are the primary objectives of the present project. Developing such an atomizer will allow in effective solvent utilization and reduce the operating costs of the flue gas scrubbing  process. This atomizer will also find other applications requiring low atomizing gas consumption and high atomization efficiency. Detailed understanding of spray mixing and droplet-gas interactions in spray columns is critical for increasing efficiency and reducing ammonia slip in spray columns. The  computational aspect supported by the experimental finding of this project is aimed to address this issue. The experimental data obtained during the project will form a data strong base for computational simulations of the scrubbing process. Computational models supported by sound experimental data will  help in understanding the dynamics of liquid gas interaction and lead towards designing efficient spray columns for flue gas scrubbing.

Analysis of Flow of Inhaled Fibres in a Model of Human Airways
Topic Overview:

Inhaled fibres can potentially cause inflammation of the lung tissue and interstitium which, after long-term exposure, may lead to lung cancer, malignant mesothelioma or pulmonary and pleural fibrosis. For risk reduction and correct setting of occupational hygiene regulations, it is important to be able to precisely calculate the fate of inhaled fibres depending on their physical characteristics and inhalation conditions. As there is a lack of experimental data on the orientation of fibres, a new test rig has been assembled for visualization and recording of flowing fibres in a replica of the human trachea. Fibres prepared from regular glass fibres produced commercially for blown thermal insulation have been processed, dispersed and introduced into the glass tube with dimensions of the trachea. Visualization was performed using a powerful LED light and a high-speed camera.

Task:

Analysis of data recorded by a high-speed camera, evaluation of angles of rotation of fibres during the flow, analysis of the results using dimensionless criteria, statistical data processing, final report.

Requirements:

Knowledge of fluid dynamics, turbulence, experience with statistical data analysis welcomed, but not necessary. Capability of using MATLAB or Origin for data processing.

Influence of Process Parameters on Properties of Mechanically Alloyed Powder Blends
Task:

To establish optimal processing parameters in mechanical alloying (e.g. weight ratio of milling media to powder content, RPM vs. powder content, influence of liquid phase addition) and to determine influence of key process parameters on the qualities of alloyed powder blends. The preparation of binary powder blends could be carried out using planetary mills. Two prevailing methods are production of powder blend mixtures and mechanical alloying using milling medium. Considering the different mechanical properties of materials, there are no optimal conditions of both methods. As such, it is necessary to establish a knowledge database of suitable (optimal) processing parameters for each material. The task of the student will be to determine the influence of input parameters (e.g. revolution of the mill system, size, shape and ratio of milling medium, processing time) on the properties of the produced blends/alloyed powders.

Modelling the Full-Scale Motorcycle/e-Scooter Accident Based on Real Cases from Accident Database
Topic Overview:

The powered two-wheeler (PTW) riders are among the group of the vulnerable road users (VRU). That means that they are the users which are exposed to the highest risk of injury in road transportation. The PTW’s drivers often travel with a speed higher than a bicyclist, but they had only a little better protection against potential injuries. A helmet is the only one required and forced by the law as personal protective equipment (PPE), which is expected to protect a rider’s body against impact.  The PPE market provides a wide spectrum of protectors (gloves, garments, boots, joint protectors), but for daily use, none of them are required to be wearied by the rider. Another safety measure in the road transportation system is a road barrier,  which for the PTW should meet different testing protocol than the car/truck barrier. Due to the complicated kinematics of  rider-PTW-opposite vehicle (OV) system in the crash conditions, the current tools for accident simulation and reconstruction, in the PTW crash cases, expose problems of simulation stability and computational cost (finite element method- based tools), or problems of insufficient models’ bio-fidelity and/or over-simplification (multibody system based tools).

Task:

Analyze provided motorcycle accident data, rekonstruct the crash configuration in the VPS. Run sensitivity analysis to assess  the most influential parameters. Validate reconstructed accident using available validation data. Analyze results and write final report.
