Site analysis to determine the loads experienced by wind turbines based on site-specific environmental conditions is typically done using either coupled aero-servo-elastic simulations for onshore wind turbines or coupled aero-servo-hydroelastic simulations in the case of offshore wind turbines. These simulations become computationally expensive...

Classical RANS (Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes) turbulence models have limited accuracy in the prediction of the flow over the wing-body geometry. Therefore, this work focuses on improving the prediction accuracy of the classical k-ω SST turbulence model for the junction flow by means of the data-driven method SpaRTA. In the SpaRTA methodology...

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is an important tool in design involving fluid flow. Scale-resolving CFD methods exist, but they are too computationally expensive for practical design. Instead, the relatively cheap Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) approach is the industry standard, specifically models based on the Boussinesq hypothesis,...

Recent years have seen an increase in studies focusing on data-driven techniques to enhance modelling approaches like the two-equation turbulence models of Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS). Different techniques have been implemented to improve the results from these simulations. In particular, the main focus has been on overcoming the...

The most used RANS-model in relation to wind farms, k−epsilon, has significant shortcomings. It over-predicts the eddy viscosity in the near-wake and fails to model the anisotropy of the turbulence quantities. The Sparse Regression of the Turbulence Stress Anisotropy (SpaRTA) method could remedy these shortcomings. This method uses temporally...

Studies revolving around data-driven methods have been on a rise in recent years to improve highly modelled methods such as the two-equation turbulence models of Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS). Similarly, such data-driven methods are implemented into partially-averaged Navier-Stokes (PANS). PANS is a young bridging method that fulfils...

When simulating fluids the industry standard is Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS). However, the results for certain flows are inaccurate. The main source of error in popular RANS turbulence models is the Boussinesq approximation, assuming a linear relationship between the Reynolds stress anisotropy and the mean rate of strain. Experiments...

To this date, simulating the dynamics of a fluid remain extremely expensive for most practical design prob- lems. The large range of length and time scales to be resolved makes it especially computationally heavy. In engineering applications, the standard is still the RANS approach for CFD modelling. Most commonly the so- called two-equation...

A wall resolved LES simulation of the Anti-Fairing wing/body junction introduced by Belligoli et al. [6] to reduce interference drag is performed. The LES mesh is composed of 61.7 million cells with a C-fitted grid around the wing . The simulation is performed using the pimple solver of Open- Foam 4 with a time and space varying inlet boundary...

In recent years, many data-driven approaches which leverage high-fidelity reference data have been developed to augment the performance of Reynolds Averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) turbulence models by providing an improved closure to the governing fluid flow equations. The goal of this M.Sc. thesis is to apply and extend one such data-driven...

Model order reduction (MOR) has been a field of active research in the past twenty years, more recently also in fluid dynamics. The main advantage of MOR is computational cost reduction, which, along with equally important accuracy, constitute main objective in the MOR community.<br/>A main ongoing issue is that data volumes in fluid flow...

Computational Fluid Dynamics based on RANS models remain the standard but suffer from high errors in complex flows. In particular, turbulent kinetic energy is over-produced in high strain rate regions, such as the near wake of wind turbine flows. Data-driven turbulence modelling methods aim to derive novel turbulence models with lower...

A wall-resolved Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of a wing-body junction is performed. The aim is to generate high-fidelity junction flow data to be used in a data-driven turbulence modelling approach, specifically to improve the accuracy of RANS-simulations in junction flows. The simulation is performed on a 61.5 million C-grid body fitted mesh in...

RANS simulation are one of the most used tools for aerodynamic analysis. The advantage of RANS simulations is the reduced computational cost compared to other methods such as LES or DNS. This is because by solving the RANS equations one only solves for the mean flow. However, this reduction in computational cost comes at the price of uncertainty...

Wind turbine wakes cause significant reductions in power production and increased fatigue damage for downwind turbines. Thus, they affect the wind levelized cost of energy. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used to quantify the wake characteristics, whereby Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) has the most potential for industrial...

Large Eddy Simulations (LES) of a novel type of wing/body junction called the anti-fairing are performed in the current thesis to study the complex turbulent flow physics involved in the junction area and also to obtain a clear understanding of the drag reduction capabilities of the anti-fairing. In regards to that, two separate LES are...

Turbulent flows are commonly encountered in scientific research or engineering applications and need simulations to be resolved. The Navier-Stokes equations govern the simulations of turbulent flows. One of the most common ways to solve the Navier-Stokes equations is to analyse the Reynolds averaged form (RANS). Next to the increasing...

Accurate measurement of emissions (i.e. volume flow rate multiplied by concentration) is vital to the control and reduction of air pollution. We quantify the uncertainty of flow measurements by S-type pitot tubes in narrow exhaust stacks (diameter &lt; 0.5 m) in support of recent European Union (EU) regulations for emissions from medium-size...
