Influence wave mode computations of multi-passage cascade flows

Copyright © 2000 by ASME.A Navier-Stokes solution method with overset grids is employed to compute the Influence Wave Modes of a compressor cascade in transonic flow conditions. The computed predictions are compared against the experimental data and the predictions based on Traveling Wave Mode computations performed using a different Navier-Stokes solver. In the present method, a five-passage flow domain is discretized with O-type subgrids around each blade and a rectangular background subgrid, A simple, robust numerical algorithm is used to localize moving intergrid boundary points, and to interpolate solution variables across the subgrids. The influence wave mode computation predicts a strong influence of the pitching mid-blade on the shock position of the neighboring blades. The predictions agree with the experimental data fairly well, and shows an improvement over the Traveling Wave Mode predictions.

Investigation of periodic boundary conditions in multi-passage cascade flows using overset grids
Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Sanz, Wolfgang (1998-01-01)
Copyright © 1998 by ASME.A Navier-Stokes solution method with overset grids is applied to unsteady multi-passage cascade flows, and the unsteady blade loadings are compared against the single passage solutions with the direct store interblade boundary condition. In the overset grid solutions, the multipassage domain is discretized with O-type grids around each blade and a rectangular background grid. Blade grids are allowed to move in time relative to the background grid as prescribed by the oscillatory plu...
Direct Calculation of Entropy Generation by Solving Reynolds-Averaged Entropy Transport Equation in an Air-Cooled Turbine Cascade
Orhan, Omer Emre; Uzol, Oğuz (2012-06-15)
This paper presents an implementation of directly solving Reynolds-Averaged Entropy Transport equation as a part of the CFD solution to predict entropy generation rates in a two-dimensional turbine blade stator section. The Reynolds Averaged Entropy Transport and the necessary modeling. equations are implemented to a commercial CFD solver as a User Defined Scalar (UDS). The results are compared with those obtained by post-processing the temperature and velocity fields obtained by solving full Navier-Stokes ...
Computation of multi-passage cascade flows with overset and deforming grids
Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı (null; 1997-12-01)
An overset grid method is applied to the solution of single and multi-passage cascade flows with a compressible Navier-Stokes solver. C-type grids around individual blades are overset onto a Cartesian background grid. Overset grids are allowed to move in time relative to each other as prescribed by the oscillatory plunging motion. The overset grid method uses a simple, robust numerical algorithm to localize moving boundary points and to interpolate solution variables across intergrid boundaries. Computation...
Numerical simulation of transient turbulent flow in a heated pipe
Uygur, Ahmet Bilge; Selçuk, Nevin; Oymak, Olcay; Department of Chemical Engineering (2002)
A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code based on direct numerical simulation (DNS) and the method of lines MOL approach developed previously for the solution of transient two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations for turbulent, incompressible, internal, non-isothermal flows with constant wall temperature was applied to prediction of turbulent flow and temperature fields in flows dominated by forced convection in circular tubes with strong heating. Predictive ability of the code was tested by comparing its r...

This dissertation investigates the boundary layer transition as well as the cavity flow noise prediction capabilities of a high-order in-house solver using various Delayed Detached-Eddy Simulation (DDES) frameworks. Before conducting the simulations, multiblock topology with a high-order overset grid technique is implemented into the solver, which makes mesh generation for complex geometries, such as the tunnel grids around blade sections, and cavity grids composed of two separate domains of the studied cas...
