Mixing at low Reynolds with NEKTAR++

Can hydrodynamic instability be used for mixing? And at the same time can conduits be shaped such that hydraulic losses are reduced? We think that it is Yes to both. We used NEKTAR++ to quantify mixing rates obtained for unstable flows through longitudinally grooved channel. This configuration is interesting because, aside from resulting in hydrodynamic […]

Nektar++ on Clowder (SBC ARM “cluster”)

Clowder The Clowder cluster is currently composed by 3 Odroid-C2 single board computers (SBC), a 5 port Gigabit Ethernet switch (Netgear GS105) and a 5V 12A power supply (see Figure 1). The Odroid-C2 is a SBC equipped with a Amlogic ARM Cortex-A53(ARMv8) 1.5Ghz quad core CPU, 2 Gbyte DDR3 SDRAM, and Gigabit Ethernet. The Odroid-C2 […]
