Oscillatory Flow Mixing

 

Oscillatory Flow  Mixing (OFM)

The oscillatory flow story started at Sussex University in the late 1970s. I worked with a control engineer, Graeme Knott on wave energy experiments and we discovered that reversing flows around sharp edges generated eddies which was bad for wave energy devices. However, flow separation and therefore eddies could be eliminated by the rounding of edges.

The background to (OFM) is told in a departmental review seminar that I gave at Cambridge in 2010
