Paper published “Assessment of turbulence models for the simulation of the flow through a megawatt scale wind turbine rotor” – EPTT2022

Neste paper são apresentadas simulações de Blade-resolved para o rotor da Turbina Teórica da NREL de 5MW, onde através de uma modelagem de CFD utilizando o OpenFOAM, realizou-se uma comparação entre dois dos mais recomendados modelos de turbulência utilizados na modelagem deste tipo de escoamento, com o objetivo de permitir computar as forças aerodinâmicas atuando[…]

Paper published in the open access journal Wind MDPI

Recently a paper has been published in the open access journal Wind MDPI, about the environmental impact and life cycle assessment of a deep water floating offshore wind turbine. In the study, we assume the turbine would be used to partly decarbonize an oil & gas production system located at the Brazilian continental shelf (Santos[…]

We are proud to announce that the paper in collaboration with Daiane Dolci, Felipe Silva, Pedro Peixoto, and Ernani Volpe has just been published in Geoscientific Model Development. This paper is a result of our research inside the STMI (Software Technologies for Modelling and Inversion), which is a project of the Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Innovation (RCGI).[…]

Artigo publicado: “Enhanced control of the turbulent flow past a circular cylinder with rotating rods inspired by an inviscid solution”

What if you could control the highly disorganised and chaotic 3D turbulent flow that is formed after it goes past a bluff structure and could possibly lead it progressively into a 2D configuration and, for sufficient rotation speeds, eventually eliminate the randomness of the eddies to achieve a smooth flow? The PhD researcher Icaro Carvalho and Professor Gustavo Assi[…]

Article published by journal Physics of Fluids: The stability of wakes of floating wind turbines

Have you ever wondered how the motion of a floating platform may affect the wake of a wind turbine mounted on top of it? We are proud to announce that a paper featuring a collaboration between Kungliga Tekniska högskolan, Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica – ITA and Universidade de São Paulo on the study of the stability of wakes of[…]

New book chapter published by Springer

Thierry Caique Lima Magalhães, Gabriel Romualdo de Azevedo, Ivanilto Andreolli, and Jorge Luis Baliño Offshore oil production systems are designed to operate in a steady-state regime; however, it is possible that this condition does not exist. Since 2006, contributions have been made in the area of stability of multiphase flow. Traditionally, isothermal flow was considered.[…]
