Cylindrical system r θ z and spherical systemr θ φ

This preview shows page 9 - 17 out of 52 pages.

cylindrical system (r, θ, z), and spherical system(r, θ, Φ) should be appropriately chosen for a better resolution of the geometry (e.g. cylindrical for circular pipe).

12 Modeling (flow conditions) Based on the physics of the fluids phenomena, CFD can be distinguished into different categories using different criteria Viscous vs. inviscid (Re) External flow or internal flow (wall bounded or not) Turbulent vs. laminar (Re) Incompressible vs. compressible (Ma) Single- vs. multi-phase (Ca) Thermal/density effects (Pr, , Gr, Ec) Free-surface flow (Fr) and surface tension (We) Chemical reactions and combustion (Pe, Da) etc…

13 Modeling (initial conditions) Initial conditions (ICS, steady/unsteady flows) ICs should not affect final results and only affect convergence path, i.e. number of iterations (steady) or time steps (unsteady) need to reach converged solutions. More reasonable guess can speed up the convergence For complicated unsteady flow problems, CFD codes are usually run in the steady mode for a few iterations for getting a better initial conditions

14 Modeling(boundary conditions) Boundary conditions: No-slip or slip-free on walls, periodic, inlet (velocity inlet, mass flow rate, constant pressure, etc.), outlet (constant pressure, velocity convective, numerical beach, zero- gradient), and non-reflecting (for compressible flows, such as acoustics), etc. No-slip walls: u=0,v=0 v=0, dp/dr=0,du/dr=0 Inlet ,u=c,v=0 Outlet, p=c Periodic boundary condition in spanwise direction of an airfoil o r x Axisymmetric
