A Spectral Solenoidal-Galerkin Method for Flow Past a Circular Cylinder

2017-09-25
Flow past a circular cylinder embodies many interesting features of fluid dynamics as a challenging fluid phenomenon. In this preliminary study, flow past a cylinder is simulated numerically using a Galerkin procedure based on solenoidal bases. The advantages of using solenoidal bases are twofold: first, the incompressibility condition is exactly satisfied due to the expansion of the flow field in terms of the solenoidal bases and second, the pressure term is eliminated in the process of Galerkin projection onto solenoidal dual bases. The formulation is carried out using a mapped nodal Fourier expansion in the angular variable while a modal polynomial expansion is used in the radial variable. A variational approach to recover the pressure variable is also presented. Some numerical tests are performed.

A subgrid stabilization finite element method for incompressible magnetohydrodynamics
Belenli, Mine A.; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Rebholz, Leo G.; Wilson, Nicholas E. (2013-07-01)
This paper studies a numerical scheme for approximating solutions of incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations that uses eddy viscosity stabilization only on the small scales of the fluid flow. This stabilization scheme for MHD equations uses a Galerkin finite element spatial discretization with Scott-Vogelius mixed finite elements and semi-implicit backward Euler temporal discretization. We prove its unconditional stability and prove how the coarse mesh can be chosen so that optimal convergence ca...
An Exploration of numerical approaches to Boltzmann equation regarding hydrodynamics
Şahin, Alper; Tarman, Işık Hakan; Department of Engineering Sciences (2019)
The Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) has become an alternative tool in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques. While traditional CFD methods are based on Navier-Stokes equations that describe the fluid in terms of macroscopic quantities, LBM takes a mesoscopic description of the fluid thus closing the gap between macroscale and microscale. Overall, LBM provides a simple and efficient framework for simulation of fluid flows. In this approach, Boltzmann kinetic equation with BGK collision operator is dis...
A New modal superposition method for nonlinear vibration analysis of structures using hybrid mode shapes
Ferhatoğlu, Erhan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, a new modal superposition method based on a hybrid mode shape concept is developed for the determination of steady state vibration response of nonlinear structures. The method is developed specifically for systems having nonlinearities where the stiffness of the system may take different limiting values. Stiffness variation of these nonlinear systems enables one to define different linear systems corresponding to each value of the limiting equivalent stiffness. Moreover, the response of the ...
A two-grid stabilization method for solving the steady-state Navier-Stokes equations
Kaya Merdan, Songül (Wiley, 2006-05-01)
We formulate a subgrid eddy viscosity method for solving the steady-state incompressible flow problem. The eddy viscosity does not act on the large flow structures. Optimal error estimates are obtained for velocity and pressure. The numerical illustrations agree completely with the theoretical results. (C) 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
