In this study, it is aimed the numerically investigation of the flow of liner PTT (Phan-Thien-Tanner) fluid, which is a viscoelastic fluid model over limited square obstacle by finite volume method. The finite volume method has been used for simultaneous solution of continuity, momentum and fluid model equations with appropriate boundary conditions. The effects of the inertia in terms of Reynolds number, Re, (0 < Re < 20) and the of elasticity in terms of Weissenberg number, We, (1 < We < 15) of PTT flow on vertical and shear stress areas are examined in detail.

Flow Characterization of Viscoelastic Fluids around Square Obstacle
Tezel, Guler Bengusu; YAPICI, Kerim; Uludağ, Yusuf (Periodica Polytechnica Budapest University of Technology and Economics, 2019-01-01)
This study focuses on the computational implementation of structured non-uniform finite volume method for the 2-D laminar flow of viscoelastic fluid past a square section of cylinder in a confined channel with a blockage ratio 1/4 for Re = 10(-)(4), 5, 10 and 20. Oldroyd-B model (constant viscosity with elasticity) and the PTT model (shear-thinning with elasticity) are the constitutive models considered. In this study effects of the elasticity and inertia on the drag coefficients and stress fields around th...
Numerical Analysis of Viscoelastic Fluids in Steady Pressure-Driven Channel Flow
YAPICI, KERİM; Karasözen, Bülent; Uludağ, Yusuf (2012-05-01)
The developing steady flow of Oldroyd-B and Phan-Thien-Tanner (PTT) fluids through a two-dimensional rectangular channel is investigated computationally by means of a finite volume technique incorporating uniform collocated grids. A second-order central difference scheme is employed to handle convective terms in the momentum equation, while viscoelastic stresses are approximated by a third-order accurate quadratic upstream interpolation for convective kinematics (QUICK) scheme. Momentum interpolation method...
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 ...
Numerical and Experimental Investigation of Newtonian Flow around a Confined Square Cylinder
Tezel, Guler Bengusu; YAPICI, Kerim; Uludağ, Yusuf (Periodica Polytechnica Budapest University of Technology and Economics, 2019-01-01)
The confined flow of a Newtonian fluid around a square cylinder mounted in a rectangular channel was investigated both numerically and experimentally. Ratio between the pipe and channel height, the blockage ratio, is kept constant at 1/4. The flow variables including streamlines, vorticity and drag coefficients were calculated at 0 <= Re <= 50 using finite volume method. The velocity terms in the momentum equations are approximated by a higher-order and bounded scheme of Convergent and Universally Bounded I...
Streamwise oscillations of a cylinder beneath a free surface: Free surface effects on fluid forces
Kocabiyik, Serpil; Bozkaya, Canan (2015-11-01)
A two-dimensional free surface flow past a circular cylinder forced to perform streamwise oscillations in the presence of an oncoming uniform flow is investigated at a Reynolds number of R=200 and fixed displacement amplitude, A=0.13, for the forcing frequency-to-natural shedding frequency ratios, f/f(0) = 1.5, 2.5, 3.5. The present two-fluid model is based on a velocity-pressure formulation of the two-dimensional continuity and unsteady Navier-Stokes equations. The continuity and Navier-Stokes equations ar...
