  3. 3. Introduction What is CFD? Prediction fluid flow with the complications of simultaneous flow of heat, mass transfer, phase change, chemical reaction, etc using computers History of CFD Since 1940s analytical solution to most fluid dynamics problems was available for idealized solutions. Methods for solution of ODEs or PDEs were conceived only on paper due to absence of personal computer. Daimler Chrysler was the first company to use CFD in Automotive sector. Speedo was the first swimwear company to use CFD. There are number of companies and softwares in CFD field in the world. Some softwares by American companies are FLUENT, TIDAL, C-MOLD, GASP, FLOTRAN, SPLASH, Tetrex, ViGPLOT, VGRID, etc.

  6. 6. Compressible and Incompressible flow A fluid flow is said to be compressible when the pressure variation in the flow field is large enough to cause substantial changes in the density of fluid. dqi 1 ~ µ = f i − p,i + qi , jj dt ρ ρViscous and Inviscid Flow In a viscous flow the fluid friction has significant effects on the solution where the viscous forces are more significant than inertial forces ∂ ∂ ( ρ u ) + ( ρ v) = 0 ∂x ∂y

  13. 13. DERIVATION OF NAVIER-STOKES-DUHEM EQUATION The Navier-Stokes equations are the fundamental partial differentials equations that describe the flow of incompressible fluids. Two of the alternative forms of equations of motion, using the Eulerian description, were given as Equation (1) and Equation (2) respectively: ∂( ρqi ) + ( ρq i q j ) , j = ρf i + σ ji , j (1) ∂t dq i ∂q i 1 = + q j qi , j = f i + σ ji , j . (2) dt ∂t ρ
  14. 14. DERIVATION (Cont’d) If we assume that the fluid is isotropic , homogeneous , and Newtonian, then : ~ ~ σ ij = −( p − λ ∈kk )δ ij + 2 µ ∈ij . (3) Substituting Equ(3) into Equ(2), and utilizing the Eulerian relationship for linear stress tensor we get : dqi 1 ~ ~ µ +λ ~ µ = f i − p ,i + q j , ji + qi , jj , (4) dt ρ ρ ρ ( for compressible fluids )
  15. 15. DERIVATION(Cont’d)For incompressible fluid flow the Navier-Stokes-Duhem equation is: dqi 1 ~ µ = f i − p,i + qi , jj dt ρ ρIf the fluid medium is a monatomic ideal gas, then : ~ 2 ~ λ =− µ 3
  16. 16. DERIVATION (Cont’d)Navier stokes equation for compressible flow ofmonatomic ideal gas is : dqi 1 ~ 1µ ~ µ = f i − p ,i + q j , ji + qi , jj , dt ρ 3ρ ρ
  17. 17. EXAMPLE PROBLEMNeglecting the gravity field, describe the steady two-dimensional flow of an isotropic , homogeneous,Newtonian fluid due to a constant pressure gradientbetween two infinite, flat, parallel, plates. State thenecessary assumptions. Assume that the fluid has auniform density.
  18. 18. SOLUTION (Cont’d)The Navier – stokes equations for incompressible flow is: dqi 1 ~ µ + q j qi , j = f i − p,i + qi , jj dt ρ ρSince the flow is steady and the body forces areneglected, the Navier-stokes equation becomes: 1 ~ µ q j qi , j = − p,i + qi , jj ρ ρ
  19. 19. SOLUTION (Cont’d)The no slip boundary conditions for viscous flow are: qi = 0 at y2 = ±aUsing the boundary conditions ( q2= 0 at y2=+/- a )Thus, the first Navier-stokes equations becomes d 2 q1 dp µ 2 = dy 2 dy1
  20. 20. SOLUTION (Cont’d) Integrating twice, we obtain q1 = 1 dp 2 2 µ dy1 ( y2 − a 2 ) The results, assumptions and boundary conditions of this problem in terms of, mathematical symbols are as follows: ρ = Constant ∂ ) ( =0 ∂( ) fi = 0 =0 ∂ t ∂y 3 q1 = 1 dp 2 2µ dy1 ( y2 − a 2 )
  21. 21. HOMEWORK PROBLEM Using the Navier-Stokes equations investigate the flow (q i) between two stationary, infinite, parallel plates a distance h apart. Assuming that you have laminar flow of a constant-density, Newtonian fluid and the pressure gradient is constant (partial derivative of P with respect to 1).

  23. 23. Applications of CFD1. Industrial Applications: CFD is used in wide variety of disciplines and industries, including aerospace, automotive, power generation, chemical manufacturing, polymer processing, petroleum exploration, pulp and paper operation, medical research, meteorology, and astrophysics.Example: Analysis of AirplaneCFD allows one to simulate the reactorwithout making any assumptions about themacroscopic flow pattern and thus todesign the vessel properly the first time.

Bio-Medical Engineering: The following figure shows pressure contours and a cutaway view that reveals velocity vectors in a blood pump that assumes the role of heart in open-heart surgery. Pressure Contours in Blood Pump
  25. 25. Application (Contd..)4. Blast Interaction with a Generic Ship HullThe figure shows theinteraction of an explosionwith a generic ship hull.The structure was modeledwith quadrilateral shellelements and the fluid as amixture of high explosivesand air. The structuralelements were assumed tofail once the average strain Results in a cut plane for the interaction of anin an element exceeded 60 explosion with a generic ship hull: (a) Surfacepercent at 20msec (b) Pressure at 20msec (c) Surface at 50msec and (d) Pressure at 50msec
  26. 26. Application (Contd..) 5. Automotive Applications: Streamlines in a vehicle without (left) and with rear center and B-pillar ventilation (right)In above figure, influence of the rear center and B-pillar ventilation on therear passenger comfort is assessed. The streamlines marking the rearcenter and B-pillar ventilation jets are colored in red. With the rear centerand B-pillar ventilation, the rear passengers are passed by more cool air. Inthe system without rear center and B-pillar ventilation, the upper part of thebody, in particular chest and belly is too warm.
  27. 27. Conclusion Nearer the conditions of the experiment to those which concern the user, more closely the predictions agree with those data, the greater is the reliance which can be prudently placed on the predictions. CFD iterative Methods like Jacobi and Gauss-Seidel Method are used because the cost of direct methods is too high and discretization error is larger than the accuracy of the computer arithmetic. Many software’s offer the possibility of solving fully nonlinear coupled equations in a production environment. In the future we can have a multidisciplinary, database linked framework accessed from anywhere on demand simulations with unprecedented detail and realism carried out in fast succession so that designers and engineers anywhere in the world can discuss and analyze new ideas and first principles driven virtual reality
