Development of Code within SU2 for Unsteady Fluid Flow with user Specified Motion
The objective is to incorporate user-defined motion for mesh morphing in unsteady flow analysis. A code is developed within SU2 in C++ language. Here the surface mesh is changed according to the equation that user has fed into the solver. Then volume mesh is morphed, this, in turn, alters flow field.
This code developed helped in specifying an equation of motion of choice and use it for fluid flow analysis.

Numerical CFD Consulting Analysis on Effect of Aspect Ratio on Fluid Flow Characteristics Past a Rectangular Cylinder
Numerical Studies on Fluid flow past Transversely Oscillating Rectangular Cylinder of Different Aspect Ratio
For the last few decades, engineers dealing with the design of bridges, offshore structures, electronic chips etc. have been studying the fluid-structure interaction of the bluff bodies. The fluid-structure interactions are studied by a common approach wherein the body is forced to oscillate with a predefined motion that actually resembles the flow-induced vibrations.
For the present CFD consulting study, an in-house SUPG-FEM algorithm based on non-inertial frame approach is employed. In the present algorithm, the effect of the non-inertial frame is represented by a simple source term in the transverse momentum equation. It facilitates computational convenience by avoiding the re-meshing of the whole domain that is required if a fixed inertial frame were used instead. Accordingly, the rectangular cylinder was forced to vibrate for various configurations such as the Aspect Ratio, Reynolds number based on the depth of the cylinder.
The frequency ratios chosen for the study are 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0. The oscillating amplitude ratios considered for the cylinder are 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3. The pressure and the surface tangential component of the cylinder acceleration play an important role in the vortex formation and shedding.
As the flow attains constant periodicity, vortices with an alternate sense of rotation are shed behind the rectangular cylinder. The influence of the cylinder vibration on the wake patterns, phase plane, lift force, drag force etc. are presented and discussed. It is observed that the force coefficients are high at harmonic frequency ratio for lower amplitudes, as the amplitude increases the maximum value shifts to superharmonic case.
