A new and symmetrical single layer armour unit, the crablock, has been designed in the UAE. One breakwater was reconstructed with crablock, but very limited testing had been performed. Just to become more acquainted with this new unit, pre-competitive research at a university has been performed, which is the subject of this paper. Being a new...

The flow around a beveled flat plate model with an asymmetric 25 degrees trailing edge with three rounding radii is analyzed using a Navier-Stokes based open source software package OpenFOAM in order to predict the aeroacoustic properties of the models. A Large Eddy Simulation with a dynamic Smagorinsky and implicit model are used as closure...

Multi-physics simulations, such as fluid-structure-acoustics interaction (FSA), require a high performance computing environment in order to perform the simulation in a reasonable amount of computation time. Currently used coupling methods use a staggered execution of the fluid and solid solver [6], which leads to inherent load imbalances. In ...

We present an integrated in-situ visualization approach for partitioned multi-physics simulation of fluid-structure interaction. The simulation itself is treated as a black box and only the information at the fluid-structure interface is considered, and communicated between the fluid and solid solvers with a separate coupling tool. The...

A numerical investigation is performed to address the flexing effect on the propulsion performance of flapping wing particularly on the counter-flapping wings of the biplane configuration. A Reynolds number of 10,000 is considered
in the present study which corresponds to the flight regime of most existing flapping wing micro air vehicles....

A three-dimensional simulation of hovering flapping wings was performed using an immersed boundary method. This was done to investigate the effects of chordwise wing deformation on three important unsteady aerodynamic mechanisms found in flapping flight, namely Leading Edge Vortex (LEV) shedding, wake capture and clap and fling. A wing was...

A Large Eddy Simulation (LES) with four different closure models are analyzed in OpenFOAM, an open source Computional Fluid Dynamics (CFD) package and validated for the determination of the streamwise and spanwise coherence length of the pressure field below a turbulent boundary layer at low Reynolds numbers. Matching results are found for outer...

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...

Strongly coupled partitioned fluid-structure interaction problems require multiple coupling iterations per time step. The fluid domain and the structure domain are solved multiple times in each time step such that the kinematic and dynamic interface conditions on the fluid-structure interface are satisfied. Quasi-Newton methods have been...

The numerical simulation of a “X-wing” type biplane flapping wings, has been performed in 3D using the Immersed Boundary Method (IBM). This “X-wing” type flapping configuration draws its inspiration from Delfly [1], a family of ornithopters developed by the Delft University of Technology, as shown in Figure 1. The unique “X-wing” design features...

This contribution compares the efficiency of Rosenbrock time integration schemes with ESDIRK schemes, applicable to unsteady flow and fluid-structure interaction simulations. Compared to non-linear ESDIRK schemes, the linear implicit Rosenbrock-Wanner schemes require subsequent solution of the same linear systems with different right hand sides....

Noting that time-accurate computations of the unsteady incompressible Navier-Stokes (INS) equations can be computationally expensive, a family of higher order implicit multi-stage time integration schemes (namely ESDIRK) is used for advancing the solution to the unsteady INS in time. The higher order time integration schemes have the potential...

Thermal interaction of fluids and solids, or conjugate heat transfer (CHT), is encountered in many engineering applications. Since time-accurate computations of such coupled problems can be computationally expensive, we consider loosely-coupled and strongly- coupled solution algorithms in which higher order multi-stage Runge-Kutta schemes are...

The focus of this paper is on acceleration of strong partitioned coupling algorithms for fluid-structure interaction. Strong partitioned coupling requires the solution of a coupled problem at each time step during the simulation. Hereto, an interface residual is defined such that the kinematic and dynamic interface conditions on the fluid...

Numerical simulations have been performed to examine the interference effects between an upstream flapping biplane airfoil arrangement and a downstream stationary tail at a Reynolds number of 1000, which is around the regime of small flapping micro aerial vehicles. The objective is to investigate the effect of the relative distance and angle of...

We perform a fully stochastic analysis of an experiment in aerodynamics. Given estimated uncertainties on the principle input parameters of the experiment, including uncertainties on the shape of the model, we apply uncertainty propagation methods to a suitable CFD model of the experimental setup. Thereby we predict the stochastic response of...

In this paper, the influence of wing flexibility and the 'clap-and-peel' motion (one versus two wings) on the upward (lifting) force in hover is studied. CFD simulations based on the ALE Navier-Stokes equations together with radial basis function mesh interpolation are used. For the 'clap-and-peel' motion an immersed symmetry plane is introduced...
