The aim of this paper is to report on a recently developed fully coupled and fully implicit solver for turbulent combustion. All the equationsare written in terms of primitive variables (pressure, velocity, temperature, turbulent parameters and species mass fractions) and solved in a fully coupled manner. The coupled system of equations is solved using an unstructured collocated Finite Volume (FV) approach using a fully implicit temporal discretization. An all speed version of AUSM approach is used along with a time derivative preconditioning. The developed fully coupled solver can be applied to a wide range of flow speeds from incompressible limit to hyper-sonic regimes. For solving the resulting system of equations, a sparse ILU preconditioned, sparse GMRES solver is used. This sparse matrix solver is very effective and only linearly increases the computational cost with increasing number of solution cells and number of solution variables. Turbulence reaction coupling is basically obtained using Eddy Dissipation Model (EDM) approach.


Vortex generator design for subsonic inlets
Nasuhbeyoğlu, Batuhan; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, numerical investigation of the benefits of vortex generators control on the performance of S-shaped inlets has been performed. This study is divided into two main parts. In the first part, a diffusive S-shaped inlet is examined and the numerical analyses results are compared with the experimental results. Three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations are solved and three different turbulence models which are Realizable k-ε, Standard k-ω, and Spalart-Allmaras methods are used. Distortion coeffici...
Numerical modeling of general compressible multi-phase flows
Kalpaklı, Bora; Tarman, Işık Hakan; Özyörük, Yusuf; Department of Engineering Sciences (2013)
In this thesis, some novel methods for solution of compressible, multi-phase flows on unstructured grids were developed. The developed methods are especially advantageous for interface problems, while they are also applicable to multi-phase flows containing mixtures as well as particle suspensions. The first method studied was a multi-dimensional, multi-phase Godunov method for compressible multi-phase flows. This method is based on the solution of a hyperbolic equation system for compressible multi-phase f...
Design Optimization in Non-equilibrium Reacting Flows
Eyi, Sinan; Yumusak, Mine (2010-07-16)
The objective of this study is to develop a reliable and efficient design tool that can be used in chemically reacting flows. The flow analysis is based on axisymmetric Euler and the finite rate reaction equations. These coupled equations are solved by using Newton's method. Both numerical and analytical methods are used to calculate Jacobian matrices. Sensitivities are evaluated by using adjoint method. The performance of the optimization method is demonstrated for a rocket motor nozzle design.
Parallel, navier-stokes computation of the flowfield of a hovering helicopter rotor
Geçgel, Murat; Özyörük, Yusuf; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2003)
The aim of this study is to extend a parallel Fortran90 code to compute three6dimensional laminar and turbulent flowfields over rotary wing configurations. The code employs finite volume discretization and the compact, four step Runge-Kutta type time integration technique to solve unsteady, thin6layer Navier6Stokes equations. Zero6order Baldwin6Lomax turbulence model is utilized to model the turbulence for the computation of turbulent flowfields. A fine, viscous, H type structured grid is employed in the co...
Incompressible flow simulations using least squares spectral element method on adaptively refined triangular grids
Akdağ, Osman; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
The main purpose of this study is to develop a flow solver that employs triangular grids to solve two-dimensional, viscous, laminar, steady, incompressible flows. The flow solver is based on Least Squares Spectral Element Method (LSSEM). It has p-type adaptive mesh refinement/coarsening capability and supports p-type nonconforming element interfaces. To validate the developed flow solver several benchmark problems are studied and successful results are obtained. The performances of two different triangular ...
