Streamwise oscillations of a cylinder beneath a free surface: Free surface effects on fluid forces

Kocabiyik, Serpil

A two-dimensional free surface flow past a circular cylinder forced to perform streamwise oscillations in the presence of an oncoming uniform flow is investigated at a Reynolds number of R=200 and fixed displacement amplitude, A=0.13, for the forcing frequency-to-natural shedding frequency ratios, f/f(0) = 1.5, 2.5, 3.5. The present two-fluid model is based on a velocity-pressure formulation of the two-dimensional continuity and unsteady Navier-Stokes equations. The continuity and Navier-Stokes equations are discretized using a finite volume approximation for two fluid regions. An improved volume-of-fluid method is employed to capture for the displacement of the free surface. The objective of this study is to examine the effects of the frequency ratios, f/f(0) = 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, and the cylinder submergence depths, h=0.25, 0.5, 0.75, on the fluid forces at a fixed Froude number of Fr=0.2. The relationship between the changes in the wake dynamics of the cylinder described in Bozkaya et al. (2011) and in the properties of fluid forces is also discussed.

Free surface wave interaction with an oscillating cylinder
Bozkaya, Canan (2014-01-01)
The numerical solution of the special integral form of two-dimensional continuity and unsteady Navier Stokes equations is used to investigate vortex states of a horizontal cylinder undergoing forced oscillations in free surface water wave. This study aims to examine the consequence of degree of submergence of the cylinder beneath free surface at Froude number 0.4. Calculations are carried out for a single set of oscillation parameters at a Reynolds number of R = 200. Two new locked-on states of vortex forma...

A computational study of a viscous incompressible two-fluid model with an oscillating cylinder is investigated at a Reynolds number of 200 and at a dimensionless displacement amplitude of A = 0.13 and for the dimensionless forcing cylinder oscillation frequency-to-natural vortex shedding frequency ratios, f/f(0) = 1.5, 2.5, 3.5.

Incompressible flow simulations using least squares spectral element method on adaptively refined triangular grids
Akdağ, Osman; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
The main purpose of this study is to develop a flow solver that employs triangular grids to solve two-dimensional, viscous, laminar, steady, incompressible flows. The flow solver is based on Least Squares Spectral Element Method (LSSEM). It has p-type adaptive mesh refinement/coarsening capability and supports p-type nonconforming element interfaces. To validate the developed flow solver several benchmark problems are studied and successful results are obtained. The performances of two different triangular ...

<jats:p>Numerical simulations of laminar, forced convection heat transfer for reciprocating, two-dimensional channel flows are performed as a function of the penetration length, Womersley (α) and Prandtl (Pr) numbers. The numerical algorithm is based on a spectral element formulation, which enables high-order spatial resolution with exponential decay of discretization errors, and second-order time-accuracy. Uniform heat flux and constant temperature boundary conditions are imposed on certain regions of the ...

Numerical results of a viscous incompressible two-fluid model with an oscillating cylinder are analyzed. Specifically, two-dimensional flow past a circular cylinder subject to forced rotational oscillations beneath a free surface is considered.
