Computation of multi-passage cascade flows with overset and deforming grids

An overset grid method is applied to the solution of single and multi-passage cascade flows with a compressible Navier-Stokes solver. C-type grids around individual blades are overset onto a Cartesian background grid. Overset grids are allowed to move in time relative to each other as prescribed by the oscillatory plunging motion. The overset grid method uses a simple, robust numerical algorithm to localize moving boundary points and to interpolate solution variables across intergrid boundaries. Computational results and comparisons with single/staggered, deforming grid solutions are presented for in- and out-of-phase multi-passage flows through a compressor cascade. Very good agreement is obtained against the deforming grid solutions.


Direct Calculation of Entropy Generation by Solving Reynolds-Averaged Entropy Transport Equation in an Air-Cooled Turbine Cascade
Orhan, Omer Emre; Uzol, Oğuz (2012-06-15)
This paper presents an implementation of directly solving Reynolds-Averaged Entropy Transport equation as a part of the CFD solution to predict entropy generation rates in a two-dimensional turbine blade stator section. The Reynolds Averaged Entropy Transport and the necessary modeling. equations are implemented to a commercial CFD solver as a User Defined Scalar (UDS). The results are compared with those obtained by post-processing the temperature and velocity fields obtained by solving full Navier-Stokes ...
Implicit lattice boltzmann method for laminar/turbulent flows
Çevik, Fatih; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
Lattice Boltzmann Method is an alternative computational method for fluid physics problems. The development of the method started in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Various numerical schemes like stream and collide, finite difference, finite element and finite volume schemes are used to solve the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation. Almost all of the numerical schemes in the literature are explicit schemes to exploit the natural features of the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation like parallelism and easy c...
Numerical methods for multiphysics flow problems
Belenli Akbaş, Mine; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Rebholz, Leo G.; Department of Mathematics (2016)
In this dissertation, efficient and reliable numerical algorithms for approximating solutions of multiphysics flow problems are investigated by using numerical methods. The interaction of multiple physical processes makes the systems complex, and two fundamental difficulties arise when attempting to obtain numerical solutions of these problems: the need for algorithms that reduce the problems into smaller pieces in a stable and accurate way and for large (sometimes intractable) amount of computational resou...
Development and validation of two-dimensional depht-averaged free surface flow solver
Yılmaz, Burak; Aydın, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2003)
A numerical solution algorithm based on finite volume method is developed for unsteady, two-dimensional, depth-averaged shallow water flow equations. The model is verified using test cases from the literature and free surface data obtained from measurements in a laboratory flume. Experiments are carried out in a horizontal, rectangular channel with vertical solid boxes attached on the sidewalls to obtain freesurface data set in flows where three-dimensionality is significant. Experimental data contain both ...
Development of discontinuous galerkin method 2 dimensional flow solver
Güngör, Osman; Özgen, Serkan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
In this work, 2 dimensional flow solutions of Euler equations are presented from the developed discontinuous Galerkin method finite element method (DGFEM) solver on unstructured grids. Euler equations govern the inviscid and adiabatic flows with a set of hyperbolic equations. The discretization of governing equations for DGFEM is given in detail. The DGFEM discretization provides high order solutions on an element-compact stencil hence only elements having common boundary are coupled. The required elementwise ...
