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.

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 ...
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 ...
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...
Gurbuz, Merve; Tezer, Münevver (2019-01-01)
In this study, the radial basis function (RBF) approximation is applied for solving the unsteady fluid flow and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) convection flow problems with the use of explicit Euler time discretization and relaxation parameters to accelerate the convergence. The stability analysis is also carried out in terms of the spectral radius of related RBF discretized coefficient matrices. The optimal choices of the time increment, relaxation parameters and physical problem parameters are found for achiev...
Approximate factorization using ACDI method on hybrid grids and parallelization of the scheme
Onay, Oğuz Kaan; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda; Sezer Uzol, Nilay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2013)
In this thesis study, a fast implicit iteration scheme called Alternating Cell Directions Imp licit method is combined with Approximate Factorization scheme. This application aims to offer a mathematically well defined version of the Alternating Cell Directions Implicit Method and increase the accuracy of the iteration scheme that is being used for the numerical solutions of the partial differential equations. The iteration scheme presented here is tested using unsteady diffusion equation, Laplace equation ...
