Rotating diverging flow, validation #2

Posted March 20, 2014 at 07:38 by skeptik (CFD notes)

Following previous post about SRFSimpleFoam, i conclude that it's not perfect solver for simulations

Also i have had many problems with stability and convergence. Not in this simple case but in case of rotating blade.

The LESinItaly database for the turbulent channel flow at Re_tau=590 is available at:

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.

Useful LES tools in Fluent - Part 4

This is a routine to perform a remap of fields from an interior surface to an inlet surface during the computation. In practice this can be used to produce an LES inflow belonging to the class of the so called "precursor methods". Still, this is actually done in parallel with the main computation and not in advance.

The attached pdf file contains an explanatory image of the method while the .c routine should be sufficiently commented to be readily usable by anyone who actually...
