Featured Case Studies

Optimization of Aerodynamic Lift to Drag Ratio

Optimization of Aerodynamic Lift to Drag Ratio

This project involved high-fidelity aerodynamic flow simulations over NLR 7301 high lift device, with an objective to increase the lift-drag ratio of the wing to facilitate and enhance the take-off condition.
A block-structured 3D mesh was created in ICEM-CFD and CFD flow simulations were performed using the state of the art SU2 software. Note that the wing geometry used has already been optimized by the Client aerospace firm.
The result of the project was that we were able to effectively increase the lift to drag ratio by 2%.

Optimization of Car Exhaust Duct

Optimization of Car Exhaust Duct

The objective of this CFD simulation project is to optimize an exhaust duct of a car engine to reduce the power-loss across the duct. The flow simulations were performed using OpenFoam flow solver and used in conjunction with CAD modeling software and python optimizer.

Through the CFD services from BroadTech Engineering, the end results of this simulation project were that we were able to get a 12% reduction in power loss.

Here you can create the content that will be used within the module.

Investigation into Under Utilization of Propellant in Rocket Motor

The objective of this project was to accurately simulate the gas-liquid flow behavior through a discharge port of a vessel.
This problem was simulated in order to study the phenomenon which is very common in liquid propellant rocket motors, where it has an adverse effect on the performance and lead to underutilization of the propellant.
The CFD simulations were carried out using the commercial ANSYS Fluent code using the volume of fluid (VOF) method, which obtains the volume fraction of each of the fluid throughout the domain and thereby captures the gas-liquid interface motion.
The results of this study were later published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Pressure Distribution effects of Chevron fences on Film Cooling Effectiveness and Flow Structures

In this study, the effectiveness of film thermal cooling for novel upstream fence geometries was investigated by using ANSYS CFX and compared with other control experimental setups. Velocity profiles, pressure coefficient profiles and turbulence kinetic energy contours were taken into consideration.
Results show that the fence cases are characterized by three pressure coefficient peaks that are responsible for generating a useful higher pressure differential between the leading edge of a film hole and the mid-line region to improve coolant lateral spreading.
Results from the CFD simulation indicate that the best novel fence is chevron with rounded edge shape in order to maximize film cooling effectiveness levels compared to conventional cooling fin geometries.

Time-Accurate Unsteady Pressure Loads Estimation on Heavy Lift Space Launch Vehicle at Flight Conditions (Single & Multi-Species Simulations)

Simulations were carried out using flow solver HiFUN
Objective:
1. Estimation of Unsteady Pressure Loads on the Heavy Lift Space Launch Vehicle at Transonic/Supersonic flight conditions using Steady/Unsteady CFD Simulations (RANS, URANS, DES)
2. Simulations should be carried out with and without Boosters (ON/OFF) conditions for a given Species.
3. Unsteady Pressure Loads needs to be extracted at 800 port locations and to be compared with wind tunnel and flight data
4. Carry out grid sensitivity study and time-step sensitivity study to establish the best practices to use for further analysis
5. Optimum grid needs to be generated for an analysis and Simulations should be carried out using flow solver HiFUN for a physical time of 1.2 Seconds
 
Approach:
Grid Generation Strategy:
After literature survey and in-house experience in handling CFD simulations for such a configurations,
the initial optimal grid was generated.The grid size was about 100 Million volumes. The unsteady pressure loads are highly non-linear and have localized effects which can excite frequency that can damage the Launch vehicle structure.
So proper care was taken while generating the grid to capture the local unsteady effects.
1. Hybrid Unstructured grids were generated for steady/unsteady simulations
2. Steady Simulations were carried out using flow solver HiFUN for flight conditions and steady pressure are computed.
These solutions can go as an initial solution for an unsteady simulation.
It’s a RANS simulation with Spalart-Allmaras(S-A) turbulence model. Second-order spatial discretization with Green-Gauss based reconstruction was employed.
3. Unsteady Simulations are carried out with Steady state solution as an initial guess. Second-order spatial discretization with Green-Gauss based reconstruction was employed. Second order Backward Euler time integration procedure was used for time.
4. Time-Step was chosen based on the simulation frequency and simulations are carried out with HiFUN Unsteady solver with Duel-time stepping procedure. The minimum convergence criteria at Dual iteration was ensured for a proper convergence.
5. Based on previous simulations results, the successive grids were generated and time-step sensitivity study also done.
 
Conclusions/Observations:
1. Unsteady and Steady pressures are computed on the surface of the Launch vehicle and were compared with wind tunnel and flight data.
It was observed that more than half the ports data were comparable with flight and wind tunnel data.
2. A set of procedures were established to carry out the future CFD studies for the Heavy Lift Launch Vehicle along with grid sensitivity and time-step sensitivity studies.
3. Based on the unsteady pressure data, all local frequencies were calculated. This is one of the important parameter used for structural design modifications.
4. Finally, It’s a computationally very intensive study due to handling such a big grid size and also Unsteady simulations along with a Multi-Species. The computational requirements for such studies also recorded.

Analysis of Particle (Black powder) Separation efficiency in the Cyclone

 

The objective of this project is to perform a CFD analysis to determine following performance parameters as given below:
• Flow pattern,
• Pressure distribution and
• Particle (Black powder) Separation efficiency in the cyclone
Due to the presence of moisture in the sales gas, liquid also enters into the cyclone (along with solid particles) in the form of droplets or slugs. Due to centrifugal action, the heavier solids and liquids are separated and collected at the bottom of the cyclone in the sump. Further analysis is carried out to
• Track the liquid-gas interface to visualize the motion of the interface and determine the unbalanced forces and moments acting on the cyclone
• Monitor the time-dependent unbalanced forces on the cyclone to determine its amplitude and frequency

 

Methodology
• The flue gases flow pattern and turbulence are modeled using Reynolds Stress Model (RSM). The RSM model solves the transport equations for Reynolds stresses and hence is more accurate to capture the vertical and tangential velocities present in cyclone separators.
• Transient multi-phase analysis using VOF model is used to track time-dependent motion of the liquid and determine the forces on the cyclone

 

Conclusion
• For higher inlet velocity flow analysis, it is observed that for 50% removal efficiency, the cut off the diameter of the particle is 7 microns. Furthermore, it is predicted that for particle size greater than 12 microns, the removal efficiency obtained is 100%.
• For lower inlet velocity analysis, it is observed that for 50% removal efficiency, the cut off the diameter of the particle is 10 microns. Furthermore, it is predicted that for particle size greater than 15 microns, the removal efficiency obtained is 100%.
• With reference to the inputs and based on CFD analysis, it is evident that there are fluctuating moment and force about the X and Y axis or about the axis of the vessel. Hence, further FEA analysis is carried out to verify the unbalance moment or force is created due to liquid rotation which otherwise would lead to vibration of the vessel.

Leak Localization of ITER Vacuum Vessel using DSMC-ITER France: DSMC

Objective:
• Modern tokamaks are large, heavy and powerful machines that can be brought down by a mere pinhole in their vacuum system or piping networks. Whether microscopic or visible, holes, cracks and faults cause leaks, which in turn allow air, water or helium to diffuse into areas that are forbidden to them. At best, a leak can seriously degrade the machine’s performance; at worst it can stop operations
Methodology
Task 1: Modeling studies to determine the spatial pressure distribution of water vapor in the areas around an ITER blanket shielding module (BSM)  using DSMC
Task 2: Modeling of the behavior of water flowing through a crevice into vacuum
Fluidyn has received following distinctions

Conclusions/Observations
1. The Pith-Up characteristics of a Fighter Aircraft were studied and It’s compared with wind tunnel data.
2. Grid resolution on capturing the vortices plays an important role to capture the aircraft Pitch-Up.
3. Using the Higher-Order scheme with RANS does a better job than using Euler Simulations.
4. Numerical Stability issues were found while using Higher-order schemes to capture the Pitch Up due to massive flow separation and Shockwaves..
So choosing schemes and CFL number to be appropriate to ensure the desired convergence.
