All rights reserved.An open cavity flow contains a highly turbulent shear layer which separates from the upstream edge and impinges on the aft wall of the cavity, causing intense noise emission. In this study, a delayed detached-eddy simulation (DDES) with the use of "shear-layer-adapted" subgrid length scale, an enhancement of DDES available in literature, is conducted for such an open cavity flow problem. The results show that this length scale unlocks the Kelvin-Helmholtz (K-H) instability, and accelerates the transition from modeled to resolved mode of DDES. Thus, the accuracy of capturing the flow profile near the shear layer separation zone, where K-H instability is dominant, increases. However, quite dense mesh resolution is required to simulate the aft wall region due to the log layer mismatch problem of DDES. On the other hand, the frequencies of dominant pressure modes are predicted accurately.

All rights reserved.Maneuver inputs designed for aircraft parameter identification are often applied during the aircraft flies close to a trimmed flight condition at an approximately constant Mach number. Since a fixed wing aircraft has control over its thrust and speed, various maneuver inputs can be applied to identify aerodynamic derivatives at discrete Mach numbers. On the contrary, most agile missile configurations do not have contr...

In this paper, a methodology is presented to perform such test in an efficient way. Experimental design process is carried out before the testing in order to cover the flight regime as much as possible with the least possible number of tests. After the determination of the test matrix and conducting the wind-on tests, the ...

For analysis, three dimensional Euler equations are solved using both Newton and Newton-GMRES methods and their performances are compared. The Jacobian matrix needed for Newton method is evaluated analytically. Newton-GMRES method is a matrix free solution technique hence it does not require the Jacobian matrix e...
