All rights reserved.Shock Wave / Boundary Layer Interaction is an important issue that should be taken into account when studying inlet design. Bleed holes have traditionally been used to remove the lower momentum part of the boundary layer to avoid separation from adverse Shock Wave / Boundary Layer Interaction. In this study, modeling of porous bleed holes investigated in computational fluid dynamics on a flat plate with and without an oblique shock interaction. For the validation of the method, three-dimensional CFD simulations are performed on fully resolved models with modeling bleed plenum and hole cavity details. Due to the ease of modeling on complex geometries, it is aimed to evaluate the unstructured grid approach on bleed flow. A grid convergence study is conducted on different levels of grids using Spalart-Allmaras, Realizable k-ε and SST k-ω turbulence models. Optimal grid resolution and turbulence model are determined for bleed flow simulations. Further CFD analyzes are performed at different total pressure ratios (Ppl/Pt) and results are compared with experimental data. The comparisons show good agreement between numerical solutions and test data for both cases. The comparisons show that the numerical solutions are in good agreement with the test data for both cases.

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 ...

All rights reserved.A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) study is conducted to investigate the unsteady, turbulent supersonic cavity flow characteristics and to control the severe effects of the flow field. Simulations of Mach 1.5 supersonic cavity flow with a length to depth ratio of 5.07 are performed using commercial ANSYS Fluent solver. Unsteady density-based Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations are modeled with standard k-ω turb...
Noise prediction of a transonic cavity flow via shear-layer-adapted delayed detached-eddy simulation
Yalçın, Özgür; Özyörük, Yusuf (2018-01-01)
© 2018 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc. 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 len...
Numerical investigation of subsonic flow over a typical missile forebody
Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Platzer, Max F. (1996-01-01)

All Rights Reserved.The NASA-Ames developed Navier-Stokes solver OVERFLOW and the panel code PMARC are applied to the computation of the flow over a typical missile forebody. The flowfields at low angles of attack from 0° to 14° are investigated. The surface pressures along the missile forebody predicted by OVERFLOW and PMARC agree well up to 10°. This favorable agreement suggests that the panel codes may be a computationally efficient tool fo...
