    the walls are near and nearly parallel is computed from the solution of the LTLS equation this will be explained later in the lecture The distributions of these two quantities are shown by Fig 14 for the former and by Fig 15 for the latter next back or contents It will be seen that WGAP has a uniform value in the region of between the top of the duct and the tops of the upper metal slabs between which the actual distance is 0 008 meters Further it has approximately twice this value near the convex corners and it becomes zero in the concave corners next back or contents Contours of auxiliary quantities used in the fluid flow calculation The flow field was calculated by means of the LVEL turbulence model which makes use of the wall distance WDIS field This like WGAP is also derived from the LTLS distribution The contours of WDIS are displayed in Fig 16 which exhibits the expected maximum of 0 004 between the parallel horizontal walls and a somewhat greater value near the cavity where the true distance from the wall depends on the direction in which it is measured next back or contents LVEL like IMMERSOL is a heuristic model by which is meant that it is incapable of rigorous justification but is nonetheless useful WDIS is calculated once for all at the start of the computation From it and from the developing velocity distribution the evolving distribution of ENUT the effective turbulent viscosity is derived The resulting contours of ENUT are shown in Fig 17 Since the laminar viscosity is of the order of 1 e 5 m 2 s it is evident that turbulence raises the effective value far from the walls by an order of magnitude next back or contents c How the stresses were calculated As will be shown below the equations governing the displacements are very similar to those governing the velocities The CFD code PHOENICS like many others can calculate velocities in fluids but this ability is not needed in the solid region so such codes are usually idle there However PHOENICS can be tricked into calculating what it thinks are velocities everywhere whereas what it actually calculates in the solid regions are displacements The details of the trickery now follow next back or contents 3 The mathematics of the method a Similarities between the equations for displacement and velocity The similarities already referred to are here described for only one cartesian direction x but they prevail for all three directions next back or contents The x direction displacement U obeys the equation del 2 U d dx D C1 Te C3 Fx C2 0 where Te local temperature measured above that of the un stressed solid in the zero displacement condition multiplied by the thermal expansion coefficient D d dx U d dy V d dz W which is called the dilatation Fx external force per unit volume in x direction V and W displacements in y and z directions C1 C2 and C3 are functions of Young s modulus and Poisson s ratio next back or contents When the viscosity is uniform and the Reynolds number is low so that convection effects are negligible the x direction velocity u obeys the equation del 2 u d dx p c1 fx c2 0 where p pressure fx external force per unit volume in x direction c1 c2 the reciprocal of the viscosity next back or contents Notes The two equations are now set one below the other so that they can be easily compared del 2 U d dx D C1 Te C3 Fx C2 0 del 2 u d dx p c1 fx c2 0 The equations can thus be seen to become identical if p c1 D C1 Te C3 which implies D p c1 Te C3 C1 and fx c2 Fx C2 next back or contents The expressions for C1 C2 and C3 are C1 1 1 2 PR C2 2 1 PR YM where PR Poisson s Ratio and YM Young s Modulus and C3 2 1 PR 1 2 PR next back or contents A solution procedure designed for computing velocities will therefore in fact compute the displacements if the convection terms are set to zero within the solid region and the linear relation between D ie d dx U and p is introduced by inclusion of a pressure and temperature dependent mass source term next back or contents b Deduction of the associated stresses and strains The strains ie extensions ex ey and ez are obtained from differentiation of the computed displacements Thus ex d dx U ey d dx V ez d dx W next back or contents Then the corresponding normal stresses sx sy sz and shear stresses tauxy tauyz tauzx are obtained from the strains by way of equations such as sx YM 1 PR 2 ex PR ey and tauxy YM 1 PR 2 0 5 1 PR gamxy where gamxy d dy U d dx V next back or contents c The SIMPLE algorithm for the computation of displacements PHOENICS employs a variant of the SIMPLE algorithm of Patankar Spalding 1972 for computing velocities from pressures under a mass conservation constraint Its essential features are All the velocity equations are solved first with the current values of p The consequent errors in the mass balance equations are computed These errors are used as sources in equations for corrections to p The corresponding corrections are applied and the process is repeated next back or contents All that it is necessary to do in order to solve for displacements simultaneously is in solid regions to treat the dilatation B as the mass source error and to ensure that p obeys the above linear relation to it Therefore a CFD code based on SIMPLE can be made to solve the displacement equations by eliminating the convection terms ie setting Re low and making D linearly dependent on p

  • Turbulence models for CFD in the 21st century
    mean temperature or concentration next16 back or contents In the saline layer example the vertical velocity of the fluid fragments is negative for the heavier and positive for the lighter members of the population Kolmogorov type models compute only population mean values although they are sometimes supplemented by guesses about the PDFs This is why they simulate combustion processes for example inadequately next17 back or contents 5 How multi fluid models MFMs work The working concepts of a multi fluid model are few and simple They are as follows The fluid mixture is regarded as composed of an intermingling population of individual fluids each distinguished by the interval it occupies on the discretised PDF abscissa A differential equation of the standard conservation type is solved for the mass fraction i e PDF ordinate of each member of the population The solutions of these equations provides the PDF for every location and time next18 back or contents The source terms in these equations express the postulated micro mixing hypothesis which defines the frequency with which the different fluids collide and the re distribution of material between population members which ensues and the speed of movement of material in population space as when a heat source shifts material from low temperature intervals into higher temperature ones next19 back or contents Additional equations either differential or algebraic are also solved for non discretised dependent variables for example the velocity components of the distinct fluids each of which will ordinarily have a different density and so be subject to different body forces Such operations of course increase computer times as compared with those required for Kolmogorov type models but the increases are not exorbitant See below for an example next20 back or contents One dimensional PDFs discretized look like this or this or this Left hand diagram only In these pictures the left hand half gives the PDF the right hand half is merely a reminder of the inter mingling fluid concept next21 back or contents Populations of fluids may be multi dimensional Examples of two dimensional populations would be the use of temperature and salinity for simulating the turbulent mixing and un mixing processes described in section 3 above and the use of fuel air ratio and completeness of reaction for simulating the flow and combustion of turbulent gases in a combustion chamber next22 back or contents A discretised two dimensional PDF looks like this or this Examples of three dimensional populations would be the discretization of all three velocity components for the detailed simulation of turbulent hydrodynamics and the use of fragment size as a third population dimension when temperature and salinity are the other two next23 back or contents It is important to recognise that the modeller can choose freely which dependent variables to discretise and which to allow to vary continuously for each fluid and how finely to discretise These choices can be made with the aid of physical insight into what variables are of dominant importance and population refinement studies of essentially the same nature as are used to determine how finely it is necessary to sub divide space and time next24 back or contents Example 3 how many fluids are needed for accuracy when predicting smoke generation These choices may differ from place to place and from time to time MFM allows the possibility of using un structured and adaptive population grids next25 back or contents It should also be understood that MFM models can be combined with enlarged viscosity models Thus it is common to use the k epsilon model for the hydrodynamics when the phenomena of greater interest involve chemical reaction or radiation During the oral presentation of the present lecture examples will be shown of the applications of multi fluid modelling to Example 4 Smoke generation in gas turbine combustors and Example 5 Chemical reaction in a paddle stirred reactor next26 back or contents 6 Calibrating MFMs Multi fluid models like those of Kolmogorov type have a priori unknown constants and functions in their equations the values and forms of which must be deduced from experimental data It is possible to use the same measurements as have been used for calibrating the EV type models for example the rates of spread of and the profiles of velocity and temperature in turbulent jets wakes and plumes However these provide only indirect evidence of the crucial quantities next27 back or contents More direct evidence is provided by difficult to make measurements of the PDFs themselves At present there are too few such data in the literature and these pertain almost entirely to one dimensional populations It is therefore important to devise new experiments which are easy to perform and rather directly indicative of the micro mixing process next28 back or contents The so called puff jet experiment which possesses these qualities will now be described A jet of fluid containing a small proportion of chemically reactive species A is injected steadily into a reservoir containing the same fluid Then for a short period of time a small amount of a second species B is injected at the jet orifice at a rate which is too small to affect the flow field A and B react as swiftly as they are allowed by the micro mixing process to form a third species C which species emits or reflects light with the result that a visible perhaps coloured cloud of material is seen to move downstream as indicated below next29 back or contents stream of reactant A visible cloud of C nozzle where B was briefly injected followed by A again next30 back or contents Since if there were no micro mixing there would be no coloured light emission and if micromixing were intense there would be maximum emission measurement of the amount of the actual emission allows the micro mixing rate to be determined The shape and speed of motion of the cloud will also provide hypothesis testing information Such experiments will be undertaken at South Bank University
