Ice accretion on aircraft components starts when an aircraft flies through atmospheric clouds containing supercooled liquid droplets, which have a temperature below freezing point but are still in a liquid state. Ice accretion occurs when water droplets impinge and freeze on the unprotected frontal regions of aircraft surfaces. The accumulated ice on aircraft components degrades the aircraft performance and causes serious flight problems. In this study, a computational fluid dynamics package is developed using open-source software. The created package is used to predict rime and glaze ice shapes on a wing airfoil for different icing condition cases. The results show a satisfactory agreement in ice shape prediction obtained using the OpenFOAM and Octave software with the corresponding data in the literature

Performance comparison of filtering methods on modelling and forecasting total precipitation amount
Ünal, Ecem; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Department of Statistics (2019)
The performance of condensed water vapour in the atmosphere observed as precipitation on the earth surface with the consequence of gravity. It is hard to observe and measure the amount and concentration of total precipitation with its all types changing over time. This difficulty can be explained by the association between the changing amount of precipitation and the variability in the climate with its both causes and consequences. As a result of these factors, modelling and forecasting of monthly total pre...
Performance comparison of filtering methods on modelling and forecasting the total precipitation amount: a case study for Mugla in Turkey
NESLİHANOĞLU, SERDAR; ÜNAL, ECEM; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan (2021-03-01)
Condensed water vapor in the atmosphere is observed as precipitation whenever moist air rises sufficiently enough to produce saturation, condensation, and the growth of precipitation particles. It is hard to measure the amount and concentration of total precipitation over time due to the changes in the amount of precipitation and the variability of climate. As a result of these, the modelling and forecasting of precipitation amount is challenging. For this reason, this study compares forecasting performance...
Modelling of interaction of shock waves with analytical methods
Koç, Mesut; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-2)
In supersonic air vehicles, specially shaped air ducts are used to supply the air with required properties to the combustion chambers. Two-dimensional supersonic flow solvers used to design such geometrical shapes have become less accurate as the geometrical shape of the air duct becomes asymmetric or flow becomes three-dimensional. This problem can be overcome by solving the interaction between shock planes using analytical methods. In this study, an analytical solution model based on principles of gas dyn...
PERFORMANCE COMPARISON OF SU2 REAL GAS MODELS AND TESTING FOR A COLD GAS THRUSTER

Cold gas propulsion systems are mainly used for attitude controlof satellites.It is possible to obtainvery low pressure and temperature at the exit section of the nozzledue to propulsion system’s nature. Investigation of steady state performance of a cold gas thruster under real gas effects is decided to be carried out. SU2, an open source compressible CFD tool,is used for analyses ofideal gas, Peng-Robinson and van-der Waals gas models. Vacuum chamber test facility of Roketsan is usedfor performance tests....
