Study of Secondary Flow Modifications at Impeller Exit of a Centrifugal Compressor  [PDF]
Surendran Anish, Nekkanti Sitaram, Heuy Dong Kim
Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2012.24A029
Abstract: A computational study has been conducted to analyze the performance of a centrifugal compressor under various levels of impeller-diffuser interactions. The study has been conducted using a low solidity vaned diffuser (LSVD), a conventional vaned diffuser (VD) and a vaneless diffuser (VLD). The study is carried out using Reynolds-Averaged Navier- Stokes simulations. A commercial software ANSYS CFX is used for this purpose. The extent of diffuser influence on impeller flow is studied by keeping the diffuser vane leading edge at three different radial locations. Detailed flow analysis inside the impeller passage shows that the strength and location of the wake region at the exit of impeller blade is heavily depended upon the tip leakage flow and the pressure equalization flow. Above design flow rate, the diffuser vane affects only the last twenty percent of the impeller flow. However, below design flow rate, keeping vane closer to the impeller can cause an early stall within the impeller. Small negative incidence angle at the diffuser vane is helpful in order to reduce the losses at the impeller exit.

Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2012.24A027
Abstract: Gas flows through micro shock tubes are widely used in many engineering applications such as micro engines, particle delivery devices etc. Recently, few studies have been carried out to explore the shock wave excursions through micro shock tubes at very low Reynolds number and at rarefied gas condition. But these studies assumed centered shock and expansion waves, which are generally produced by instantaneous diaphragm rupture process. But in real scenario, the diaphragm ruptures with a finite rupture time and this phenomenon will significantly alter the shock wave propagation characteristics. In the present research, numerical simulations have been carried out on a two dimensional micro shock tube model to simulate the effect of finite diaphragm rupture process on the wave characteristics. The rarefaction effect was simulated using Maxwell’s slip wall equations. The results show that shock wave attenuates rapidly in micro shock tubes compared to conventional macro shock tubes. Finite diaphragm rupture causes the formation of non-centered shock wave at some distance ahead of the diaphragm. The shock propagation distance is also drastically reduced by the rupture effects.
Numerical Study on the Effect of Unsteady Downstream Conditions on Hydrogen Gas Flow through a Critical Nozzle  [PDF]
Junji Nagao, Shigeru Matsuo, Toshiaki Setoguchi, Heuy Dong Kim
Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2012.24014
Abstract: A critical nozzle (sonic nozzle) is used to measure the mass flow rate of gas. It is well known that the coefficient of discharge of the flow in the nozzle is a single function of Reynolds number. The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of unsteady downstream condition on hydrogen gas flow through a sonic nozzle, numerically. Navier-Stokes equations were solved numerically using 3rd-order MUSCL type TVD finite-difference scheme with a second-order fractional-step for time integration. A standard k-ε model was used as a turbulence model. The computational results showed that the discharge coefficients in case without pressure fluctuations were in good agreement with experimental results. Further, it was found that the pressure fluctuations tended to propagate upstream of nozzle throat with the decrease of Reynolds number and an increase of amplitude of pressure fluctuations.

Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2013.32A015
Abstract: Fluid flow and heat transfer analysis of Cu-H2O nanofluid in a square cavity using a Thermal Lattice Boltzmann Method (TLBM) have been studied in the present work. The LBM has built up on the D2Q9 model and the single relaxation time method called the Lattice-BGK (Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook) model. The effect of suspended nanoparticles on the fluid flow and heat transfer analysis have been investigated for different non dimensional parameters such as particle volume fraction (φ) and particle diameters (dp) in presence of internal heat generation (q) of nanoparticles. It is seen that flow behaviors and the average rate of heat transfer in terms of the Nusselt number (Nu) as well as the thermal conductivity of nanofluid are effectively changed with the different controlling parameters such as particle volume fraction (2% ≤ φ ≤ 10%), particle diameter (dp = 5 nm to 40 nm) with fixed Rayleigh number, Ra = 105. The present results of the analysis are compared with the previous experimental and numerical results for both pure and nanofluid and it is seen that the agreement is good indeed among the results.
Computational Analysis of Mixing Guide Vane Effects on Performance of the Supersonic Ejector-Diffuser System  [PDF]
Fan Shi Kong, Heuy Dong Kim, Ying Zi Jin, Toshiaki Setoguchi
Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2012.23005
Abstract: The flow field in the ejector-diffuser system and its optimal operation condition are hardly complicated due to the complicated turbulent mixing, compressibility effects and even flow unsteadiness which are generated inside the ejector- diffuser system. This paper aims at the improvement in ejector-diffuser system by focusing attention on entrainment ratio and pressure recovery. Several mixing guide vanes were installed at the inlet of the secondary stream for the purpose of the performance improvement of the ejector system. A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method based on Fluent has been applied to simulate the supersonic flows and shock waves inside the ejector. A finite volume scheme and density-based solver with coupled scheme were applied in the computational process. Standard k-ω turbulent model, implicit formulations were used considering the accuracy and stability. Previous experimental results showed that more flow vortexes were generated and more vertical flow was introduced into the stream under a mixing guide vane influence. Besides these effects on the secondary stream, the mixing guide vane effects on the shock system of the primary stream were also investigated in this paper. Optimal analysis results of the mixing guide vane effects were also carried out in detail in terms of the positions, lengths and numbers to achieve the best operation condition. The comparison of ejector performance with and without the mixing guide vane was obtained. The ejector-diffuser system performance is discussed in terms of the entrainment ratio, pressure recovery as well as total pressure loss.

Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2012.24A019
Abstract: Interaction between the normal shock wave and the turbulent boundary layer in a supersonic nozzle becomes complex with an increase of a Mach number just before the shock wave. When the shock wave is strong enough to separate the boundary layer, the shock wave is bifurcated, and the 2nd and 3rd shock waves are formed downstream of the shock wave. The effect of a series of shock waves thus formed, called shock train, is considered to be similar to the effect of one normal shock wave, and the shock train is called pseudo-shock wave. There are many researches on the configuration of the shock wave. However, so far, very few researches have been done on the asymmetric characteristics of the leading shock wave in supersonic nozzles. In the present study, the effect of nozzle geometry on asymmetric shock wave in supersonic nozzles has been investigated experimentally.
A Computational Study of the Gas-Solid Suspension Flow through a Supersonic Nozzle  [PDF]

Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2012.24A028
Abstract: The present study focuses on numerical simulation of the gas-solid suspension flow in a supersonic nozzle. The Euler- Lagrange approach using a Discrete Phase Model (DPM) has been used to solve the compressible Navier-Stokes equa- tions. A fully implicit finite volume scheme has been employed to discretize the governing equations. Based upon the present CFD results, the particle loading effect on gas-solid suspension flow was investigated. The results show that the presence of particles has a big influence on the gas phase behavior. The structure of shock train, the separation point, and the vortex of the backflow are all related to particle loading. As the particle loading increases the flow characteris- tics behave differently such as 1) the strength of shock train decreases, 2) the separation point moves toward the nozzle exit, 3) the number and strength of vortex increase, 4) the strength of first shock also increases while the other pseudo shocks decreases. The change of gas flow behavior in turn affects the particle distribution. The particles are concen- trated at the shear layers separated from the upper wall surface.

Characteristics of transonic flow over an airfoil are determined by a shock wave standing on the suction surface. In this case, the shock wave/boundary layer interaction becomes complex because an adverse pressure gradient is imposed by the shock wave on the boundary layer. Several types of passive control techniques have been applied to shock wave/boundary layer interaction in the transonic flow. Furthermore, possibilities for the control of flow fields due to non-equilibrium condensation have been shown so far and in this flow field, non-equilibrium condensation occurs across the passage of the nozzle and it causes the total pressure loss in the flow field. However, local occurrence of non-equilibrium condensation in the flow field may change the characteristics of total pressure loss compared with that by non-equilibrium condensation across the passage of flow field and there are few for researches of locally occurred non-equilibrium condensation in a transonic flow field. The purpose of this study is to clarify the effect of locally occurred non-equilibrium condensation on the shock strength and total pressure loss on a transonic internal flow field with circular bump. As a result, it was found that shock strength in case with local occurrence of non-equilibrium condensation is reduced compared with that of no condensation. Further, the amount of increase in the total pressure loss in case with local occurrence of non-equilibrium condensation was also reduced compared with that by non-equilibrium condensation across the passage of flow field.

The study of the migration characteristics of turbulent jets has become relevant as they are used in a variety of engineering devices and are encountered in combustion, chemical processes, and processes involving cooling, mixing, and drying. In several applications, especially in the case of hot streaks in gas turbines, the knowledge of mixing phenomena becomes crucial from a design perspective. The purpose of this study is to look into the characteristics of a round hot jet in a parallel air flow. A jet of hot air injected through a nozzle into a flow of cold air has been considered. Numerical simulations were carried out with different hot jet temperatures and two different Reynold’s numbers, thus aiming at understanding the effect of initial conditions on the mixing of the jet. The temperature profiles were studied at different sections downstream of the nozzle. The results are presented in non-dimensional form.

Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2015.54031
Abstract: In the present study, a numerical investigation is carried out on the aerodynamic performance of a supercritical airfoil RAE 2822. Transonic flow fields are considered where self-excited shock wave oscillation prevails. To control the shock oscillation, a passive technique in the form of an open rectangular cavity is introduced on the upper surface of the airfoil where the shock wave oscillates. Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations have been used to predict the aerodynamic behavior of the baseline airfoil and airfoil with cavity at Mach number of 0.729 and at angle of attack of 5°. The aerodynamic characteristics of the baseline airfoil are well validated with the available experimental data. It is observed that the introduction of a cavity around the airfoil upper surface can completely stop the self-excited shock wave oscillation and successively improve the aerodynamic characteristics.
