Basic finite volume tools

Posted July 1, 2013 at 11:29 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

At the following link:

http://rapidshare.com/files/1564297057/UFVMOM.rar

there is a basic MATLAB tool to handle unstructured finite volume grids (fluent .msh or .cas files) and to perform basic interpolations, gradient computations, plots etc. No actual FV computation is ever performed or implemented, however, the main structure of the code is clearly there.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The tool is actually a collection of functions, grouped by tasks...

Lambda-2 criterion

Posted July 1, 2013 at 11:06 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

The lambda 2 criterion simply concerns the definition of the scalar lambda2 and how turbulent structures can be visualized by proper isosurfaces of lambda2 (like for the Q criterion). Hence, the real difference with the scalar Q is how you compute the scalar lambda2.

This is defined as the second (in magnitude) eigenvalue of the matrix:

S_{ik} S_{kj} + \Omega_{ik} \Omega_{kj}

where:

3D Panel Method

Posted July 1, 2013 at 11:03 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

Some open/free 3D panel method tools:

APAME

PANAIR (A502)
http://www.pdas.com/contents15.html (look for Panair - A502)

If you are looking for something more didactic, i suggest:

But it seems that the material is not available when the course is not active.

The role of pressure for incompressible flows

Posted July 1, 2013 at 10:34 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

If we consider the continuity and momentum equations for a general compressible fluid:

\frac{\partial \rho}{\partial t} +
\frac{\partial}{\partial x_j}\left[ \rho u_j \right] = 0


\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\left( \rho u_i \right) +
\frac{\partial}{\partial x_j}
\left[ \rho u_i u_j + p \delta_{ij} - \tau_{ji} \right] = 0

taking the time derivative of the first one and the divergence of the second one:...
