Performance comparison of Newton and Newton-GMRES methods in 3-D flow analysis

Yıldızlar, Buket
Because of CPU time problems, an alternative to Newton’s method is investigated in order to make a flow analysis in a 3-D Supersonic Nozzle. Calculation and forming of the Jacobian matrix get harder as the system gets larger. On the contrary, Newton-GMRES approach does not require direct access to the Jacobian matrix. Due to the fact that it provides a dramatic decrease in CPU time, Newton-GMRES method is examined. To compare their performance on a supersonic nozzle, 3-D Euler Equations are solved with Newton’s and Newton-GMRES methods respectively. A parametric study is conducted for Newton-GMRES method to find the optimal solution with respect to CPU times elapsed. In order to analyse Newton-GMRES method’s behavior on larger systems, different test cases are generated. The code is developed for Newton-GMRES method with Fortran77.


Implementation of a Monte Carlo method to a two-dimensional particle-in-cell solver using algebraic meshes
ŞENGİL, NEVSAN; Tumuklu, Ozgur; Çelenligil, Mehmet Cevdet (2012-01-01)
Particle-in-cell (PIC) technique is a widely used computational method in the simulation of low density collisionless plasma flows. In this study, a new two-dimensional (2-D) electrostatic particle-in-cell solver is developed that can be applied to non-rectangular configurations.
Implicit lattice boltzmann method for laminar/turbulent flows
Çevik, Fatih; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
Lattice Boltzmann Method is an alternative computational method for fluid physics problems. The development of the method started in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Various numerical schemes like stream and collide, finite difference, finite element and finite volume schemes are used to solve the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation. Almost all of the numerical schemes in the literature are explicit schemes to exploit the natural features of the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation like parallelism and easy c...
Performance Evaluation of the Numerical Flux Jacobians in Flow Solution and Aerodynamic Design Optimization
Ezertas, Alper; Eyi, Sinan (2010-07-16)
A direct sparse matrix solver is utilized for the flow solution and the analytical sensitivity analysis. The effects of the accuracy of the numerical Jacobians on the accuracy of sensitivity analysis and on the performance of the Newton's method flow solver are analyzed in detail. The gradient based aerodynamic design optimization is employed to demonstrate those effects.
Numerical Solution and Stability Analysis of Transient MHD Duct Flow
Tezer, Münevver (2018-11-01)
This paper simulates the 2D transient magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow in a rectangular duct in terms of the velocity of the fluid and the induced magnetic field by using the radial basis function (RBF) approximation. The inhomogeneities in the Poisson’s type MHD equations are approximated using the polynomial functions (1+r) and the particular solution is found satisfying both the equations and the boundary conditions (no-slip and insulated walls). The Euler scheme is used for advancing the solution to ste...
Radiative Omega(Q)* -> Omega(Q)gamma and Xi(Q)* -> Xi(Q)'gamma transitions in light cone QCD
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; SUNDU PAMUK, HAYRİYE (2015-01-14)
We calculate the magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole moments associated with the radiative Omega(Q)* -> Omega(Q)gamma and Xi(Q)* -> Xi(Q)'gamma transitions with Q = b or c in the framework of light cone QCD sum rules. It is found that the corresponding quadrupole moments are negligibly small, while the magnetic dipole moments are considerably large. A comparison of the results of the considered multi-pole moments as well as corresponding decay widths with the predictions of the vector dominance model is...
