The aims of the Flexing Wind project, investigated in an intensive cross-disciplinary course, were twofold. First was to learn about aerodynamic phenomena around buildings. Second was to explore ways to observe, measure, and control the negative effects of wind around specific pedestrian areas, tram stops, and public sites in Melbourne City....

Numerical simulation has been conducted for the investigation of heat transfer in a rectangular, high–aspect ratio microchannel with heat sinks, similar to an experimental study. Water at ambient temperature is used as working fluid and the heating power of 180 W is introduced via electronic cartridges in the solids. Three channel heights of 0.3...

Detailed mechanisms describing ignition, flame propagation and pollutant formation typically involve several hundred species and elementary reactions, prohibiting their use in practical three-dimensional engine simulations. Conventionally reduced mechanisms often fail to predict minor radicals and pollutant precursors. The ILDM-method is an...

Many industrial processes involve particulates with materials ranging from pharmaceuticals, ceramics, cosmetics and foods. Common to all these particulate processes is the discharge of granular material from bins/hoppers in either mass flow mode (i.e. all material regions in the domain are in motion) or core flow mode (i.e. there is a flowing...

A Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) analysis allows the calculation of the heat transfer and temperature of a body placed in a fluid. The CHT analysis takes into account both the conduction in the solid and the convection in the fluid. Present paper describes a CHT method that uses two separate solvers: one CFD solver dedicated to the flow...

This paper presents an accurate approach to simulate the sonic boom of a supersonic aircraft. The near field flow is modeled by the conservative Euler equations and is solved using a finite volume approach on adapted unstructured tetrahedral meshes. Then, from the CFD solution, the pressure distribution under the aircraft is extracted and used...

Experiments on forced ignition of extremely fuel-rich n-butane-oxygen mixture with the equivalence ratio of 23 in the standard 20-liter spherical vessel at elevated initial pressure (4.1 bar) and temperature (500 K) reveal the nonmonotonic influence of the forced ignition delay time on the maximum explosion pressure and the maximum rate of...

In this paper a Two Step approach with Chaos Collocation for efficient uncertainty quantification in computational fluid-structure interactions is followed. In Step I, a Sensitivity Analysis is used to efficiently narrow the problem down from multiple uncertain parameters to one parameter which has the largest influence on the solution. In Step...

Functional imaging of the respiratory system is a new domain where the respiratory dynamics (such as airflow in the lungs and particle deposition) are studied by means of modern engineering techniques. A three dimensional model of a patient specific bronchial tree is constructed from a computed tomography scan. By segmenting the desired region...

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a condition in which the patient repeatedly stops breathing during sleep due to the collapse of the upper airway. The upper airway collapse is caused by a relaxation of the upper airway muscles, combined with a decrease in intraluminal pressure and hence an increase in external pressure from the surrounding...

With the use of the Newton method, a new numerical method previously published [1] for solving the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations, is theoretically proved for the most simple case of one-dimensional acoustic equations. The convergence of iteration scheme is proved. In this paper, we also recall some theoretical and numerical results...

This paper gives an overview of the TAU-Code, DLR's system for complex flow simulations on unstructured hybrid grids. Starting from a short description of the system and its components, e.g. mesh adaptation or grid deformation, its basic capabilities are discussed. Thereafter recent and on-going developments are presented, such as the adjoint...

The paper deals with the algorithm for unsteady anisotropic adaptation. The adaptation is using the remeshing approach to create a new refined grid. The grid is generated in computational space defined by metric field based on the tensor error indicator. The verification of the method is done first for 2D supersonic flow in a channel with...

A time dependent Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis of gas jets impinging onto liquid pools has been conducted. The aim of the study is to obtain a better understanding of highly complex, and industrially relevant flows in jetting system. Three different multiphase models, i.e., The Eulerian model, the volume of fluid model and the mixture...

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a useful tool for modeling chemical reactors. However, because the design goals and expected outcomes are different than in "traditional'' CFD applications, chemical reactors require special attention to the treatment of chemical reactions, and heat and mass transfer. Here we provide an overview of the...
