Streamwise oscillations of a cylinder beneath a free surface: Free surface effects on vortex formation modes

Bozkaya, Canan

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. Specifically, two-dimensional flow past a circular cylinder subject to forced in-line oscillations beneath a free surface is considered. The method is based on a finite volume discretization of the two-dimensional continuity and unsteady Navier-Stokes equations (when a solid body is present) on a fixed Cartesian grid. Two-fluid model based on improved volume-of-fluid method is used to discretize the free surface interface. The study focuses on the laminar asymmetric flow structure in the near wake region and lock-on phenomena at a Froude number of 0.2 and for the dimensionless cylinder submergence depths, h = 0.25, 0.5 and 0.75. The equivorticity patterns and pressure distribution contours are used for the numerical flow visualization. The code validations in special cases show good comparisons with previous numerical results.


Exact and FDM solutions of 1D MHD flow between parallel electrically conducting and slipping plates
Arslan, Sinem; Tezer, Münevver (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-08-01)
In this study, the steady, laminar, and fully developed magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow is considered in a long channel along with the z-axis under an external magnetic field which is perpendicular to the channel axis. The fluid velocity u and the induced magnetic field b depend on the plane coordinates x and y on the cross-section of the channel. When the lateral channel walls are extended to infinity, the problem turns out to be MHD flow between two parallel plates (Hartmann flow). Now, the variations of u...

Flow of viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting fluid, driven by imposed electric currents has been investigated in the presence of a transverse magnetic field. The boundary perpendicular to the magnetic field is perfectly conducting partly along its length. Three cases have been considered: a) flow in the upper half plane when the boundary to the right of origin is insulating and that to the left is perfectly conducting, b) flow in the upper half plane when a finite length of the boundary is perfe...
Least-squares differential quadrature time integration scheme in the dual reciprocity boundary element method solution of diffusive-convective problems
Bozkaya, Canan (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Least-squares differential quadrature method (DQM) is used for solving the ordinary differential equations in time, obtained from the application of dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the spatial partial derivatives in diffusive-convective type problems with variable coefficients. The DRBEM enables us to use the fundamental solution of Laplace equation, which is easy to implement computation ally. The terms except the Laplacian are considered as the nonhomogeneity in the equation, which ar...
Finite element study of biomagnetic fluid flow in a symmetrically stenosed channel
Turk, O.; Tezer, Münevver; Bozkaya, Canan (Elsevier BV, 2014-03-15)
The two-dimensional unsteady, laminar flow of a viscous, Newtonian, incompressible and electrically conducting biofluid in a channel with a stenosis, under the influence of a spatially varying magnetic field, is considered. The mathematical modeling of the problem results in a coupled nonlinear system of equations and is given in stream function-vorticity-temperature formulation for the numerical treatment. These equations together with their appropriate boundary conditions are solved iteratively using the ...
Exact solutions of the Schrodinger equation via Laplace transform approach: pseudoharmonic potential and Mie-type potentials
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-04-01)
Exact bound state solutions and corresponding normalized eigenfunctions of the radial Schrodinger equation are studied for the pseudoharmonic and Mie-type potentials by using the Laplace transform approach. The analytical results are obtained and seen that they are the same with the ones obtained before. The energy eigenvalues of the inverse square plus square potential and three-dimensional harmonic oscillator are given as special cases. It is shown the variation of the first six normalized wave-functions ...
