Summary: Direct Numerical Simulation of Turbulent Flow around a Rotating Circular Cylinder Turbulent flow around a rotating circular cylinder has multiple applications but, uniquely it can be applied to convex surfaces, so that flow-affected corrosion with high Schmidt numbers can be modeled. Despite the positive attributes of modeling this way the curvature of the cylinder affects the turbulence structure and creates a two- dimensional homogenous flow. These to factor when paired together decrease the detail of flow field over the geometry on which corrosion is to be predicted, and because little is

Unformatted text preview: known about this turbulence and it is tough area to model, the only option for this model is to use direct numerical simulation (DNS). In DNS parameters are set and a computer is used to model physical objects in real-world situations. For the purpose of this experiment the a cylinder radius, outer boundary, axis of rotation, and spanwise size were set as the parameters. The only varying parameter was spanwise which was larger at higher rpms to contain the turbulence....
