Inverse airfoil design using the Navier-stokes equations

1993-01-01
The feasibility of the use of the Navier-Stokes equations in aerodynamic design is examined. The Navier-Stokes equations can include the rotational viscous physics at transonic speeds, and hence are expected to produce more reliable design. The target pressure is specified and a least- square optimization is used to minimize the pressure discrepancy between the target and designed airfoils. The sensitivity analysis which determines the response of the flow to a geometry perturbation is performed based on a finite difference evaluation. The performance of the design method is evaluated with various design practices.

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...

Magnetic and Structural Analysis of a Transverse Flux Claw Pole Linear Machine
Keysan, Ozan; Mueller, Markus A. (2013-01-01)
This paper details the design and testing of a novel transverse flux claw pole linear machine suitable for large superconducting generators. The machine utilises a modular claw pole transducer design with a stationary field winding which eliminates the need for cryogenic couplers and electrical brushes for a superconducting machine. The results from this prototype will enable a better understanding of the electromagnetic and mechanical structures before embarking on a more costly super-conducting design. Th...
