Lift Coefficient Calculation Using a Geometric/Solution Adaptive Navier Stokes Solver on Two-Dimensional Cartesian Grids for Compressible and Turbulent Flows

Kara, Emre
Aksel, Mehmet Haluk
In this study, two-dimensional geometric and solution adaptive refinement/coarsening scheme codes are generated by the use of Cartesian grid generation techniques. In the solution of compressible, turbulent flows one-equation Spalart-Allmaras turbulence model is implemented. The performance of the flow solver is tested on the case of high Reynolds number, steady flow around NACA 0012 airfoil. The lift coefficient solution for the airfoil at a real-life-flight Reynolds number is compared with the experimental study in literature.

Time filtered second order backward Euler method for EMAC formulation of Navier-Stokes equations
Demir, Medine; Çıbık, Aytekin; Kaya Merdan, Songül (2022-12-15)
© 2022 Elsevier Inc.This paper considers the backward Euler based linear time filtering method for the developed energy-momentum-angular momentum conserving (EMAC) formulation of the time dependent-incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in the case of weakly enforced divergence constraint. The method adds time filtering as a post-processing step to the EMAC formulation to enhance the accuracy and to improve the approximate solutions. We show that in comparison with the Backward-Euler based EMAC formulation ...
Camera trajectory estimation for indoor robot odometry using stereo images and inertial measurements
Horasan, Anıl; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
In this study, the development and implementation of an algorithm for stereo visual-inertial odometry are described. The study spans the complete process from analyzing the sensory data to the development of a robot odometry algorithm. The criteria for indoor visual-inertial odometry include using low-cost sensor systems, having an error less than five percent of the movement regardless of the distance covered, and building a robust algorithm in the presence of geometric and photometric invariances as well ...
Implementation of k-epsilon turbulence models in a two dimensional parallel navier-stokes solver on hybrid grids
Kalkan, Onur Ozan; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, the popular k-ε turbulence model is implemented on a parallel, 2-dimensional, explicit, density-based, finite volume based Navier-Stokes solver works on hybrid grids, HYP2D. Among the other versions available in the open literature, standard version of the k-ε turbulence mode is studied. Launder-Spalding and Chieng-Launder wall functions are adapted to the turbulence model in order to investigate the effects of the strong gradients in the vicinity of the wall on the turbulence. In order to i...
Multi-symplectic integration of coupled non-linear Schrodinger system with soliton solutions
AYDIN, AYHAN; Karasözen, Bülent (2009-01-01)
Systems of coupled non-linear Schrodinger equations with soliton solutions are integrated using the six-point scheme which is equivalent to the multi-symplectic Preissman scheme. The numerical dispersion relations are studied for the linearized equation. Numerical results for elastic and inelastic soliton collisions are presented. Numerical experiments confirm the excellent conservation of energy, momentum and norm in long-term computations and their relations to the qualitative behaviour of the soliton sol...
A 2-D unsteady Navier-Stokes solution method with overlapping/overset moving grids
Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı (1996-01-01)
A simple, robust numerical algorithm to localize intergrid boundary points and to interpolate unsteady solution variables across 2-D, overset/overlapping, structured computational grids is presented. Overset/ overlapping grids are allowed to move in time relative to each other. The intergrid boundary points are localized in terms of three grid points on the donor grid by a directional search algorithm. The final parameters of the search algorithm give the interpolation weights at the interpolation point. Th...
