Numerical Simulation of a Flapping Micro Aerial Vehicle Through Wing Deformation Capture
Tay, W. B.; de Baar, J. H. S.; Perçin, Mustafa; Deng, S.; van Oudheusden, B. W. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), 2018-8)
Three-dimensional numerical simulations of a four-wing flapping micro aerial vehicle (FMAV) with actual experimentally captured wing membrane kinematics have been performed using an immersed boundary method Navier-Stokes finite volume solver. To successfully simulate the clap and fling motion involving the wing intersection, the numerical solver has been specifically modified to use a newly improved interpolation template searching algorithm to prevent divergence. Reasonable agreement was found between the ...

Numerical simulation of solidification kinetics in A356/SiCp composites for assessment of as-cast particle distribution
CETIN, Arda; Kalkanlı, Ali (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-01)
The present work is aimed at studying the effect of solidification rate on reinforcement clustering in particle reinforced metal matrix composites (PMMCs) through numerical simulations and experimental studies. A macrotransport-solidification kinetics (MTSK) model was used to simulate the solidification kinetics of the PMMCs. The experimental validation of the numerical model was achieved through the Newtonian and Fourier thermal analysis methods. Results reveal that the MTSK model can be successfully used ...
Numerical simulation of various cross sectional workpieces using conventional deep drawing and hydroforming technologies
Onder, Erkan; TEKKAYA, AHMET ERMAN (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-01)
This study focuses on the determination of optimum sheet metal forming process and process parameters for various cross sectional workpieces by comparing the numerical results of high-pressure sheet metal forming, hydro-mechanical deep drawing (DD) and conventional DD simulations. Within the range of each cross section, depth, characteristic dimensions ratio and fillet radius have been altered systematically. Steel of types St14 and DC04 have been used as the specimen material in the numerical analyses and ...
Numerical Simulation of a Flexible X-Wing Flapping-Wing Micro Air Vehicle
Deng, S.; Perçin, Mustafa; van Oudheusden, B. W.; Bijl, H.; Remes, B.; Xiao, T. (2017-07-01)
Numerical simulations were performed to investigate the flowfield around a flexible flapping-wing micro air vehicle using an in-house-developed computational fluid dynamics solver. To include the dynamics of the flexible wings and its impact on the aerodynamic behavior of the micro air vehicle, the wing-deformation pattern during flapping was experimentally determined by a stereovision measurement. These data were subsequently interpolated to be employed as prescribed flapping kinematics in the numerical fl...
