FSI Analysis

FSI Analysis of Shockwave Boundary Layer Interaction Over Hollow Cylinder/Flare 

Objective: Evaluation of turbulence modeling for CFD and Euler flux schemes for Shockwave boundary layer interaction over hollow cylinder/flare
Methodology:
– Computational results from the fluid-structure interaction have been validated with experimental results available from CUBRC, USA (6 cases)
– Grid independence study: series of 10 grids generated in P3D format in C++ programming language
– 3 Euler FLux schemes, i.e., Roe Scheme, AUSM+ scheme, HLLE+ scheme have been compared for accuracy
– k – w Wilcox (2006) turbulence model has been assessed for a large hollow cylinder flare configuration for turbulent flow ranging from Mach 5 to 8 at hypersonic flight conditions
– 16 million node grid has been used for the multiphysics modeling and the final computations
– GASPex CFD solver from Aerosoft, Inc. has been utilized for multiphysics simulations 
Outcome & Conclusion:
– the three Euler flux schemes predict the flow features within 1% accuracy of each other
– the peak surface pressure is consistently underpredicted (-3% to -30%) except in two cases out of six cases.
– the peak surface heat transfer is consistently over-predicted (29% to 74%).
– an unphysical spike in turbulent kinetic energy is observed 2-3 inches upstream of the reattachment location
– The k – w turbulence model overpredicts (about 2%) the size of the separation region for all cases which is an important factor to be taken into consideration while designing control surfaces for hypersonic vehicles

CFD FSI Analysis of 2D Airfoils

Objective: CFD Analysis of 2D Airfoils (NACA 0012 and NACA 6412) at different angle of attacks (AOA) for comparison of aerodynamic behavior of symmetric & asymmetric airfoils
Methodology
– Used empirical formula for x and y coordinates of NACA 4 digit airfoils to create the accurate contour of airfoil
– Utilized C-meshing in Ansys 14.0 for generating 1 million cell meshing
– STP conditions of the Turbulent Flow Simulation 
– Used Fluent software for CFD FSI simulation at Reynold number 3.5 million. k-w SST turbulence model is used with three grid sequence levels for 2000 iterations
Outcome & Conclusion:
– Contours of density, pressure, temperature, Mach number were generated for each multiphase flow simulation 
– Flat bottom aerofoils are more efficient with an aim to generate more lift instead of the symmetrical aerofoil.
– For same AOA, flat bottom aerofoil generates more lift compared to symmetrical aerofoil
– As AOA increases, flat bottom airfoil will generate more drag and lift compared to the symmetric airfoil. – Airfoil efficiency, i.e., lift to drag ratio, L/D.
At 0 AOA, L/D ratio for NACA 0012 and NACA 6412 are 0.01 and 292.29 respectively.
At +6 AOA, L/D ratio for NACA 0012 and NACA 6412 are 22.19 and 10.38 respectively. Hence, airfoils should be selected based upon their range of operations.
