    • Modelling dry granular flows over topography 

      Tsang, Jonathan Michael Foonlan (2019-07-19)
      Dry granular flows are common and important in the environment and industry, and yet their behaviour is very poorly understood. The dynamics of individual grains are governed by the simple and well-known laws of Newtonian ...
    • The design and production of operating systems 

      Whitby-Strevens, Colin (1970-05-28)
    • The Statistical Theory of Stationary Turbulence 

      Rasmussen, Henrik Obbekaer (1995-06-21)
      This thesis concerns the theory of turbulence as well as that of wavelet transforms. The main contribution to the theory of turbulence is an extension of the von Karman-Howarth equation to turbulence that may be either ...
    • Rotating Thin Films: the Vortex Fluidic Device 

      Leivadarou, Evgenia (2019-07-20)
      The motivation of this thesis, is the understanding of the role of fluid mechanics in the performance of the Vortex Fluidic Device (VFD), developed by the Raston laboratory at Flinders University, Australia. The VFD is a ...
