A Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes computational fluid dynamics (RANS-CFD) package will be one of the primary tools used during the development of a performance prediction program for Wind-Assisted commercial ships. The modelling challenge presented by large separated flow structures in the wake of the sailing ship points to a conscientious...

Shallow water effects change the flow around a ship significantly which can affect the optimum design of the hull. This paper describes a study into the optimization of the aft ship region for various water depths. The research focuses on variations of the following parameters of a hull form: The athwart ship’s propeller location, the tunnel top...

Air lubrication techniques are very promising in reducing ship drag. It has been demonstrated that air cavity applications can realise propulsive power reduction percentages of 10-20% due to the reduction of the frictional resistance [1, 2]. However, a complete understanding of the two-phase flow physics involved with air cavity flows is still...

In recent years wind-assisted propulsion for commercial ships has gained an increasing interest as valuable alternative to reduce fuel pollutant emissions. However, the development of feasible and commercially viable wind propulsion systems to partially (or fully) propel a ship is nowadays hindered by the difficulties of modelling the...

The CFD simulation tool ComFLOW is extended to investigate the characteristics of wave motions in the presence of steady uniform currents. Initially, the inflow boundary is the superposition of waves and current. Effect of the latter on the former is resolved by solving Navier-Stokes equations within the domain as a next step. A Generating and...

The problem of non-intrusive uncertainty quantification is studied, with a focus on two computational fluid dynamics cases. A collocation method using quadrature or cubature rules is applied, where the simulations are selected deterministically. A one-dimensional quadrature rule is proposed which is nested, symmetric, and has positive weights....

In order to reach the required manoeuvrability, inland vessels often use twin rudders, but the interaction effects are poorly understood. To achieve a proper configuration, this paper applies 2D RANS simulations to analyse the interaction effects on the twin-rudder hydrodynamics. Various twin-rudder configurations with different profiles and...

This paper summarises the design of a gust generator and the comparison between high fidelity numerical results and experimental results. The gust generator has been designed for a low subsonic wind tunnel in order to perform gust response experiments on wings and assess load alleviation. Special attention has been given to the different design...

Being able to accurately determine weir discharges is of key importance in urban water management. The most common method is performing a level measurement and calculating the discharge using the standard weir equation. Since this equation is only valid in certain conditions, this can lead to large deviations from the actual discharge. In this...

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...

Architecture, nowadays, is an even more demanding activity in which complexity is the keyword: complex forms, complex functions and complex structures require sophisticated facilities and components, for example, ‘The Cloud’ of D. and M. Fuksas in Rome. These complexities can give rise to numerous risks, among which fire is frequently a central...

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....

The present work explores the massively parallel capabilities of the most advanced architecture of graphics processing units (GPUs) code named “Fermi”, on a two-dimensional unstructured cell-centred finite volume code. We use the SIMPLE algorithm to solve the continuity and momentum equations that was fully ported to the GPU. The benefits of...

Dust emissions can have significant effects on the human health, environment and industry equipment. Understanding the dust generation process helps to select a suitable dust preventing approach and also is useful to evaluate the environmental impact of dust emission. To describe these processes, numerical methods such as Computational Fluid...

Modeling of low-Capillary number segmented flows in microchannels is important for the design of microfluidic devices. We present numerical validations of microfluidic flow simulations using the volume-of-fluid (VOF) method as implemented in OpenFOAM. Two benchmark cases were investigated to ensure the reliability of OpenFOAM in modeling complex...

Computational fluid-structure interaction is most commonly performed using a partitioned approach. For strongly coupled problems sub-iterations are required, increasing computational time as flow and structure have to be resolved multiple times every time step. Many sub-iteration techniques exist that improve robustness and convergence, although...

Biomedical flow problems tend to involve domains which are geometrically complex over a range of scales. Much effort has gone into developing tools for generating computational meshes automatically from medical scan data (MRI, CT), allowing the easy creation of patient-specific models of the flow domain, and hence the investigation of flow under...

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...
