Numerical simulation of minimum B-jumps at abrupt drops

A numerical simulation of minimum B-jumps in horizontal rectangular channels having an abrupt drop is given. Gradually varied, steady, supercritical flow is assumed as the initial condition. An unsteady flow is created by increasing the downstream depth. One-dimensional, unsteady Saint-Venant equations are solved by using the MacCormack and the dissipative two-four explicit finite difference schemes. The steady flow solution is obtained by treating the time variable as an iteration parameter and letting the solution converge to the steady state. The abrupt drop is treated as an interior boundary and solved by the method of characteristics. The results are compared with experimental and analytical studies.

Numerical Analysis of Viscoelastic Fluids in Steady Pressure-Driven Channel Flow
YAPICI, KERİM; Karasözen, Bülent; Uludağ, Yusuf (2012-05-01)
The developing steady flow of Oldroyd-B and Phan-Thien-Tanner (PTT) fluids through a two-dimensional rectangular channel is investigated computationally by means of a finite volume technique incorporating uniform collocated grids. A second-order central difference scheme is employed to handle convective terms in the momentum equation, while viscoelastic stresses are approximated by a third-order accurate quadratic upstream interpolation for convective kinematics (QUICK) scheme. Momentum interpolation method...
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...
Forced hydraulic jump on artificially roughened beds
Şimşek, Çağdaş; Tokyay, Nuray; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
In the scope of the study, prismatic roughness elements with different longitudinal spacing and arrangements have been tested in a rectangular flume in order to reveal their effects on fundamental characteristics of a hydraulic jump. Two basic roughness types with altering arrangements have been tested. Roughness elements of the first type extends through the channel width against the flow with varying length and pitch ratios for different arrangements. The second type is of staggered essence and produced b...
Numerical Simulation of Rarefied Laminar Flow past a Circular Cylinder
Çelenligil, Mehmet Cevdet (2014-07-18)
Numerical simulations have been obtained for two-dimensional laminar flows past a circular cylinder in the transitional regime. Computations are performed using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method for Knudsen numbers of 0.02 and 0.2 and Mach numbers of 0.102 and 0.4. For these conditions, Reynolds number ranges from 0.626 to 24.63 and the flows are steady. Results show that separation occurs in the wake region for the flow with Mach number of 0.4 and Knudsen number of 0.02, but for the other eases flow...
Direction finding with a circularly rotated antenna
Koc, AT; Sen, E; Tanik, Y (2000-06-09)
In this work, a new algorithm for multiple emitter direction finding by using a single antenna moving along a circular trajectory is proposed. The problem is formulated by taking the Doppler frequency shift, caused by the movement of the antenna. into account, and by assuming that the information, hidden in the incoming signals, does not change in the observation duration. The proposed direction finding algorithm is, therefore, based on single snapshot processing and also on the linear prediction method dev...
