As the space industry continues to grow rapidly, the development of reusable launch vehicles has become crucial in achieving cost-effective and sustainable access to space. Payload capacity optimisation has been at the forefront of this effort, leading to a renewed interest in hammerhead or bulbous payload fairing (PLF) configurations. These...

Tsunamis, impulse waves, and dam-break waves are rare but catastrophic events, associated with casualties and damage to infrastructures. An adequate description of these waves is vital to assure human safety and to generate resilient structures. Furthermore, a specific building geometry with openings, such as windows and doors, reduces wave...

The Kutta condition is a boundary condition applied at a wing’s trailing edge (TE), which enables the calculation of the fluid-dynamic lift produced by a wing in potential flow. This condition is actually a stable equilibrium resulting from a transient flow. The main question of this research is: how is the Kutta condition flow-field created...

An unexploited rotational momentum, i.e. swirl, is present in the slipstream of propellers. Stationary vanes, called swirl recovery vanes (SRVs), have been proven to be effective in increasing the propulsive efficiency of propellers. There is however no conclusive answer in literature on the noise effect of SRVs. Additionally, as the propeller...

New generation combat aircraft are expected to operate over extended flight envelopes, including flight at high flow angles and rapid maneuvers. Conditions beyond traditional limits are giving rise to nonlinear phenomena, such as flow separation, large scale energetic vortices, fluctuations etc. These phenomena have significant impact on...

Airfoil design plays an important role in improving the performance of Vertical Axis Wind Turbines(VAWTs). The aim of this thesis is to arrive at optimal airfoil geometries to enhance the performance of VAWTs and analyse the performance of these optimal airfoils under steady and unsteady operation conditions of the rotor. The airfoil design is...

In this article, we endeavour to find a fast solver for finite volume discretizations for compressible unsteady viscous flows. Thereby, we concentrate on comparing the efficiency of important classes of time integration schemes, namely time adaptive Rosenbrock, singly diagonally implicit (SDIRK) and explicit first stage singly diagonally...

This contribution compares the efficiency of Rosenbrock time integration schemes with ESDIRK schemes, applicable to unsteady flow and fluid-structure interaction simulations. Compared to non-linear ESDIRK schemes, the linear implicit Rosenbrock-Wanner schemes require subsequent solution of the same linear systems with different right hand sides....

Over the last four decades the increase in computer power and the advances in solver technology has resulted in an estimated reduction of 10 orders in magnitude to compute flow problems. However, to solve the instationairy Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations, even today, a massive amount of CPU time may be required. For example, to solve...

The paper describes the results of computational simulation of an unsteady two-phase gas-particle flow in a hypersonic shock tunnel. The tunnel consists of a heated shock tube, a convergent-divergent nozzle linked up with the low-pressure chamber of the tube, a test section where a model is placed, and a exhaust chamber. In calculations, the...

In comparison with Euler methods unsteady inviscid transonic full potential methods are known to suffer from limitations with respect to the modeling of shock waves. In this paper unsteady 2D and 3D full potential methods are extended with the Clebsch variable model. This model represents exactly the shockgenerated entropy and vorticity. The...

A method is presented for the generation of 0-type grids about transverse cross-sections of transport type aircraft. The method combines a hyperbolic grid generation scheme with source terms obtained with a boundary element method in such a way that 0-type grids around fairly complex shapes with concavities can be generated easily. The...

den Boer, R.G. (author)
An experimental investigation revealed that the d5mamic response of a given pressure tube depends not only on the mean local pressure and the frequency, but also on the pressure amplitude and the boundary-layer at the tube entrance. By analyzing the flow at the entrance of the tube, the parameters are determined, which possibly play a role in...

A description is given of TULIPS - a method for Transonic Unsteady Lifting Inviscid Potential-flow Simulation. The Mathematical formulation and the numerical approach are presented for flow about oscillating airfoils. TULIPS is based on the numerical integration of the unsteady full-potential equation in generalized coordinates. The equation is...

In this report an approximate method is described for computing, through the unsteady analogy, the shape of steady vortex wakes downstream of aircraft configurations in steady flight. In the analogy the steady fully three-dimensional problem is reduced to a two-dimensional timedependent problem, corresponding to the evolution of a two...

An unsteady, separating flow with a free surface was investigated with a physical model and a numerical model. To simulate tidal flow, the prescribed flow rate at the inflow boundary was a half-period sine function of time. Measurements of velocities and wave heights were conducted by using LDV and a wave-height meter in a straight open channel...
