In this research computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used to model a vertical axis wind turbine. Well known turbulence models | i.e. the k-epsilon and k-omega SST model | are used and compared in their performance against each other and a set of experimental data. The formal research question is "What models are available for the simulation of...

Local heat transfer from a cylinder in tube bank has been extensively studied. In many applications such as design of heat exchangers, detailed information regarding the circumferential and longitudinal variation of heat transfer to a cylinder is required. There are many different methods for measuring local heat transfer like techniques using...

Topology optimization of fluid dynamical systems is still in its infancy, with its first academic realizations dating back to as late as three years ago. In this paper, we present two approaches to fluid dynamic topology optimization that are based on potential flows and adjoint states, respectively. Special emphasis is paid to the computation...

Numerical simulation of materials synthesis based on detailed models for the chemical kinetics and transport processes is expected to support development and optimization of production processes. Exemplarily, chemical vapor deposition and infiltration of pyrolytic carbon for the production of carbon fiber reinforced carbon is studied by recently...

The design activity within the EUROLIFT II project is targeted towards an improvement of the take-off performance of a generic transport aircraft configuration by a re-design of the trailing edge flap. The involved partners applied different optimization strategies as well as different types of flow solvers in order to cover a wide range of...

In the SIMMAN 2008 workshop, the capability of CFD tools to predict the flow around manoeuvring ships has been investigated. It was decided to continue this effort but to extend the work to the flow around ships in shallow water. In this paper, CFD calculations for the KLVCC2 are presented. The aim of the study is to verify and validate the...

We consider a multistage algorithm to advance in pseudo-time to find a steady state solution for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. The rate of convergence to the steady state is improved by using an implicit preconditioner to approximate the numerical scheme. This properly addresses the stiffness in the discrete equations associated with...

This paper analyses the performances of adapted URANS and DES turbulence^modelling for high-Reynolds 2D and 3D aerodynamic flows with a pronounced periodic character. The flow configurations is the NACA0012 airfoil in pitch (experimental test-case by Mc Croskey & Mc Alistair, 1976) at Reynolds number 0.98x10^6, as well as the inherently unsteady...

Thermal batteries are primary disposable systems specially designed to develop a high energy density in during a short period. Differently from the classical electrochemical systems, the electrolyte of such batteries is solid at room temperature, which make them inert until they are heated to high temperatures (around 500ÂșC), when the...

A systematic grid convergence study is conducted for the Detached-Eddy Simulation (DES) of the massively separated flow around a NACA0021 airfoil at high angle of attack. In order to study the convergence characteristics of DES/LES problems, velocity fields using a series of grids must be generated that demonstrate sufficient dynamic similarity...

A Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) system for a wing with nacelle and pylon is developed. The present MDO system is based on the integration of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) codes and NASTRAN based an aeroelastic-structural interface code. The Kriging model is employed to save the computational time of objective function...

The focus of this paper is on the parallel computing aspects of multi-physics CFD methods and the implications for the design of a CFD framework encompassing mesh-based and particle-based approaches. In the first part of the paper, the shared-memory parallelisation of a multi-block, structured CFD is described and the parallel performance of...

Currently, turbomachinery design optimization methodologies are mainly restricted to steady state approaches, due to the high computational cost associated with time-accurate shape optimization algorithms. However, the possibility to include unsteady effects in turbomachinery optimization can significantly increase the level of accuracy of...

A gradient based method is presented for optimization of an airfoil configuration. The flow is governed by two dimensional, compressible Euler equations. A finite volume code based on unstructured grid is developed to solve the equations. The procedure is carried out for optimizing an airfoil with initial configuration of NACA 0012. The...

This paper is the starting point for the development of a multi-fidelity modeling approach for vortex generators (VG) arrays, where a fully resolved VG model will be coupled with an approximate model in order to improve both accuracy and flexibility without increasing the required computational cost. As a first step thereto, an analysis of the...

In this paper, a simple analysis method for flow simulations around a motor cycle is discussed based on CFD. In the practical CFD, most of the efforts are wasted for grid generations. The typical two types of grid are body-fitted grid and Cartesian grid. Body-fitted grid was often used for the flow calculation around the vehicle until today....

Renewed interest in propeller propulsion on aircraft configurations combined with higher propeller loads lead to the question how the effects of the propulsion on model support disturbances should be accounted for. In this paper, the determination of engine power effects on support interference of sting-mounted models is demonstrated by a...

This paper presents two-dimensional direct numerical simulations (DNS) of noise generated at trailing edges (TE) with zero thickness. The simulations are conducted specifying either no-slip or slip walls in order to investigate viscous effects. In both cases, small amplitude disturbances are introduced close to the inflow boundary that serve as...

This paper presents a non-reflecting boundary condition that significantly reduces the spurious pressure oscillations that are produced when vortical structures in a compressible flow cross the computational farfield boundaries. The method is based on commonly used characteristic boundary conditions. Here, incoming characteristics are ramped to...
