hansen_kristy

PhD Thesis Title:

Effect of Leading Edge Tubercles on Airfoil Performance (2006 -continuing) – Experimental and computational study into the effect of modifications to the leading edge of an airfoil in the form of sinusoidal protrusions of various heights and spacing.  It has been shown that these modifications have a positive influence on the lift characteristics of an airfoil and the aim of the research is to study the effect of height and spacing variations as well as how the position of maximum thickness will influence the results.

MS thesis title:

-

BE (Honours) Thesis Title:

Internal Flows Practical (2004) – Development of an undergraduate laboratory apparatus including both design and construction phases.  The purpose was to demonstrate pump and impeller characteristics and to familiarize students with various devices used in pipe networks.
