Rotating diverging flow, validation

Posted March 19, 2014 at 07:29 by skeptik (CFD notes)

I've found interesting article about experimental investigation of a rotating diverging flow.

http://www.lmfa.ec-lyon.fr/ISAIF/Dat...AIF8-00105.pdf

There are a good data about geometry and results so i decided to conduct simulation in SRFSimpleFoam.

what i have for 30 rad/sec and Re=15800 (3m/s at inlet)

The coincidence is pretty good but not perfect. Data for 60 rad/sec is coming soon.

salomeToOpenFOAM mesh conversion

Posted March 14, 2014 at 07:36 by skeptik (CFD notes)

I met one big problem when i have converted SALOME mesh by UNV format and ideasToFoam utility.

It was not usual mesh, it contained pyramids. See fig.

I spent a lot time to achieve the same result like i can using ICEM. Only when i've found salomeToOpenFOAM script i successfully converted my mesh.

So i recommend it. The script is very helpful.

Good source of DAKOTA tutorials.
Look here.

For older versions of DAKOTA adopting cases is little bit tricky pursuit, but it's really work.

LES.
Long. Expensive. Seems to be true.

How to implement simple acoustic analogy

Posted November 15, 2013 at 02:30 by skeptik (CFD notes)

Here is useful work concrete with libForces library rethinking and implementing Curle's analogy on basis of it.

I think it would be very good just for coding exercise.
