Generation of internal waves by a supercritical stratified plume
The generation of internal waves by a propagating river plume is studied in the framework of a fully nonlinear nonhydrostatic numerical model. The vertical fluid stratification, parameters of tide, river discharge, and the ...
Three-dimensional evolution of large-amplitude internal waves in the Strait of Gibraltar
The modeling of large-amplitude internal waves (LAIWs) propagating in the Strait of Gibraltar is carried out using a fully nonlinear nonhydrostatic numerical model. The focus of the modeling efforts was on three-dimensional ...
What determines auditory similarity? The effect of stimulus group and methodology.
Two experiments on the internal representation of auditory stimuli compared the pairwise and grouping methodologies as means of deriving similarity judgements. A total of 45 undergraduate students participated in each ...
Numerical study of straight-bladed Darrieus-type tidal turbine
(Thomas Telford, 2009-05)
This paper presents developments in numerical simulations of a cross-flow vertical-axis marine current turbine (straight-bladed Darrieus type) with particular emphasis on rotor-performance prediction and hydrodynamic loads ...
Design, manufacture, mechanical testing and numerical modelling of an asymmetric composite crossbow limb
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009-04)
This paper considers the design, manufacture, mechanical testing and numerical analysis of a crossbow beam (limb). The limb should be lightweight and permit a high deflection of the beam's tip in order to achieve a good ...
Droperidol: past, present and future.
Understanding pitch perception as a hierarchical process with top-down modulation.
Pitch is one of the most important features of natural sounds, underlying the perception of melody in music and prosody in speech. However, the temporal dynamics of pitch processing are still poorly understood. Previous ...
Long-term evolution of strongly nonlinear internal solitary waves in a rotating channel
The evolution of internal solitary waves (ISWs) propagating in a rotating channel is studied numerically in the framework of a fully-nonlinear, nonhydrostatic numerical model. The aim of modelling efforts was the investigation ...
