In this thesis diffuser performance will be simulated with computational fluid dynamics, which will be done with the program Ansys Fluent. The expanding geometry creates an adverse pressure gradient and under certain conditions there will also be separation.master thesis 2017
At first a relative simple simulation will be done of a one-directional...
Models are an important tool for decision making. However, in order to get proper results, these models must be validated and only be used in situations where the conditions of the validation apply. Blind trust on a model can lead to unexpected and inaccurate results. Advancements can be made to reduce the number of situations where this occurs....master thesis 2016
