    • CFD Numerical simulations of Francis turbines 

      Laín Beatove, Santiago; García, Manuel; Quintero, Brian; Orrego, Santiago (Universidad de Antioquia, 2010-01)
      In this paper the description of the internal flow in a Francis turbine is addressed from a numerical point of view. The simulation methodology depends on the objectives. On the one hand, steady simulations are able to ...
    • Effects of water inlet configuration in a service reservoir applying CFD modelling 

      Laín Beatove, Santiago; Cruz Vélez, Camilo Hernán; Torres Lozada, Patricia; Escobar Rivera, Juan Carlos; Montoya Pachongo, Carolina (Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Facultad de Ingeniería, 2016)
      En este estudio se evaluó mediante simulación numérica la influencia del cambio en la configuración de entrada de agua sobre el patrón de flujo, condiciones de mezcla y decaimiento del cloro residual libre en un tanque de ...
    • Hydraulic and rotor-dynamic interaction for performance evaluation on a francis turbine 

      Lain Beatove, Santiago; Quintero Arboleda, Brian; Garcia Ruiz, Manuel Julian; Orrego, Santiago; Barbosa, Jaime (Springer Verlag France, 2017-08)
      This paper proposes a new methodology to evaluate the technical state of a Francis turbine installed in a hydroelectric plant by coupling computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and rotor-dynamic analysis. CFD simulations ...
    • Simulating and designing small hydrokinetic turbines: A review 

      López Castrillón, Yuri Ulianov; Lain Beatove, Santiago; Ramírez Tovar, Ana María (International Review of Electrical Engineering (IREE), 2018)
      The increased use of renewable energy resources for rural electrification has encouraged research and experimental projects decreasing designs uncertainties. This paper presents a deep and critical review of the design of ...
    • Surface damage caused by the interaction of particles and a spark-generated bubble near a solid wall 

      Teran, Leonel A.; Rodríguez, Sara A.; Lain Beatove, Santiago; Jung, Sunghwan (Elsevier, 2019-11-15)
      Machine components operating in a fluid under conditions of cavitation and hard particle erosion can be severely affected by wear, which may reduce the lifespans of the components. To understand this synergic behaviour, ...
