Free Android App for Aerodynamics calculations

Posted February 2, 2014 at 09:46 by nilyash81

The app is handy tool for Aerodynamic Engineers and Academicians. It contains Isentropic Relations, Normal Shock Relations, Oblique-Shock (Theta-Beta-Mach) Relations, Prandtl-Meyer Expansion wave Relations, Pitot Tube- Velocity computations, Y Plus or Y+ calculations.

1. Isentropic Relations - If any one of the variable from M, Po/P, To/T, Rho/Rh or A/A* is known and used as input, the remaining...

Sorry, I wasn't asking you to check my calculations or anything. I was just wondering, as I cant find the definition in the theory manual, if the wall shear stress vector is definitely derived in CFX from the dot product of the viscous stress tensor and the unit normal vector as follows:

Tau = T . n

T = viscous stress tensor
n = surface normal vector
Tau = wall shear stress vector

As far as my axes are concerned, I generated

Nice post on k at the boundary

  1. Depending on the information you have from experiments, you can, at least roughly, estimate the residual kinetic energy at the inlet, and use that value. If you have PIV measurements of the inlet, you can filter that velocity filter that velocity field with the same filter size you use in the simulation, and obtain the value of the residual k at the BC.
  2. Giving as boundary condition the

Convergence in ANSYS Fluent

Posted December 13, 2013 at 06:00 by Centurion2011

At convergence, the following should be satisfied:
  • All discrete conservation equations (momentum, energy, etc.) are obeyed in all cells to a specified tolerance OR the solution no longer changes with subsequent iterations.
  • Overall mass, momentum, energy, and scalar balances are achieved.
  • Monitoring convergence using residual history:
  • Generally, a decrease in residuals by three orders of magnitude indicates at least qualitative convergence. At this point, the major flow features should be
