Developments in computational capabilities and the always increasing demand for higher performance of internal flow applications has meant that Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has become an essential tool within the design process. A key point of interest is to couple the fluid solver with numerical optimisation techniques in order to obtain...

To cater to the increasing demand in short-range passenger air transport and the research in electric and hybrid aircraft, there is a renewed interest in the research of propellers. Propellers are known to have high aerodynamic efficiency, which translates to lower fuel burn in comparison to other jet engines, making it an attractive option for...

Airfoils in deep stall have been a subject of extensive computational discussion in the past, with multiple efforts being performed by various institutions to test their solvers and turbulence/hybrid sub-grid scale (SGS) models for their use in massively separated flows. This case has an important application in turbomachinery where unsteady...

Vello, Riccardo (author)
The objective of this thesis was to further the validation effort on the SU2 flow solver for non-ideal compressible flows. To do so, an uncertainty quantification infrastructure based on the V&V20 validation standard was developed. To determine whether a model error was present, the different sources of uncertainty were combined and then...

The Flying V is an innovative new aircraft concept currently being developed by the faculty of Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology. This aircraft is a flying wing having a large sweep on the inner section, and a small sweep angle at the outer, giving the aircraft its characteristic V shape. The objective of this research is...

There is a requirement for localised efficient electricity generation systems that increase the efficiency of power plants and reduce wasted heat from other engineering applications such as cement manufacturing units and brick kilns. Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power systems use organic fluids and low-grade heat sources to accomplish this. Lack...

The validation of SU2 for modelling classical non-ideal compressible fluid dynamics will advance the research into efficient ORC turbomachinery design. This study determines the validity of the two-dimensional flow solver for predicting the isentropic expansion of Siloxane MM through a converging-diverging nozzle using...

Prior to the detailed design of turbines, turbomachinery engineers must rely on mean-line and throughflow models to come to a preliminary design. These models are based on empirical loss correlations and are often derived from cascade experiments and numerical analyses that are confined to the subsonic and transonic regime. Axial turbines for...

In order to reduce the carbon foot-print of turbo-generators to global warming, a step-change in the design process is needed. Extensive CFD simulations coupled with optimization algorithms are required, resorting to novel techniques to capture the complex flow phenomena occurring in the passage. However, the computation of the optimization...

The open-source SU2 suite has been subject to extensive verification and validation studies in the past few years. Through such studies, the ability of the SU2 CFD solver to produce high-fidelity results for external flows has been substantiated by data from numerous testcases. Interest in applying the suite to turbomachinery flow analysis and...

The main objective of the thesis is to analyze the potential for improving the aerodynamic efficiency of Siemens SGT5-2000E turbine section by optimizing the blade shapes. An adjoint-based shape optimization is implemented at the mid-span of the axial turbine. The optimization is performed, for the stator and the rotor individually, to reduce...

In a previous study, the optimal re-entry trajectory of Hyperion-2 has been derived. The mission of the vehicle is to measure hypersonic boundary-layer transition, a phenomena in which the laminar boundary layer turns into a turbulent boundary layer. This is an important feature in hypersonic flow to investigate, as it introduces peak heating...
