Investigation of slug-churn flow induced transient excitation forces at pipe bend. (2019)
Journal Article
HOSSAIN, M., CHINENYE-KANU, N.M., DROUBI, G.M. and ISLAM, S.Z. 2019. Investigation of slug-churn flow induced transient excitation forces at pipe bend. Journal of fluids and structures [online], 91, article ID 102733. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jfluidstructs.2019.102733

Numerical simulations of two-phase flow induced fluctuating forces at a pipe bend have been carried out to study the characteristics of multiphase flow induced vibration (FIV). The multiphase flow patterns and turbulence were modelled using the volum... Read More about Investigation of slug-churn flow induced transient excitation forces at pipe bend..

Effect of oleic acid coating of iron oxide nanoparticles on properties of magnetic polyamide-6 nanocomposite. (2019)
Journal Article
GUPTA, R., PANCHOLI, K., DE SA, R., MURRAY, D., HUO, D., DROUBI, G., WHITE, M. and NJUGUNA, J. 2019. Effect of oleic acid coating of iron oxide nanoparticles on properties of magnetic polyamide-6 nanocomposite. JOM [online], 71(9), pages 3119-3128. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s11837-019-03622-5

This work reports the development and testing of a magnetic polymer (Polyamide 6, PA6) nanocomposite capable of melting when exposed to an external magnetic field. Addition of high concentrations of iron oxide nanoparticles (NPs) can induce quick mel...

Indentation based strength analysis of adhesively bonded leading-edge composite joints in wind turbine blades. (2019)
Journal Article
DROUBI, M.G., FOSBROOKE, C., MCCONNACHIE, J. and FAISAL, N.H. 2019. Indentation based strength analysis of adhesively bonded leading-edge composite joints in wind turbine blades. SN applied sciences [online], 1(7), article ID 691. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s42452-019-0735-6

Wind turbine is a source of non-polluting renewable energy. Whether a wind turbine is viable depends entirely on the structural integrity of turbine blade. To assess the structural integrity of wind turbine blades it is necessary to investigate the l...
