About This Special Issue
The Special Issue summarizes results of typical numerical flow simulations and their experimental or operational evaluations, solved in the past in VÚTS – Center for Research in Machinery in Liberec (former Research Institute of Textile Machines), Czech Republic in the area of fluid mechanics for various technical applications, first of all in textile technologies. Typical areas are focused on systems developed in VUTS and now spread all over the world - air jet weaving system, open-end spinning and also drying, carding, nonwovens etc. Individual parts of systems are simulated, as for instance air flow, air drag in main nozzles, designed as ejectors, flow field in auxiliary or relay nozzle, flows in the channel of weaving reed, influence of reed dent shape on the picking reliability, mutual flow - structure interactions etc. Necessary auxiliary systems are studied, too, as for instance parts of air conditioning systems – heaters, tubing, air exhausting, pneumatic transport, heat transfer, aerodynamic noise etc.
