Simulations and validation of an axial-flow pit turbine
The geometric design of an axial-flow pit-turbine is essential as flow separation will decrease turbine efficiency. In this thesis, steady Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) simulations were conducted with a two-equation ...
Experimental and RANS-CFD Study of Nacelle Drag
The drag on a nacelle model was investigated experimentally and computationally to provide guidance and insight into the capabilities of RANS-based CFD. The research goal was to determine whether industry constrained CFD ...
Heat Transfer in an Airfoil Shaped Strut
The heat transfer from a hot primary flow stream passing over the outside of an airfoil shaped strut to a cool secondary flow stream passing through the inside of that strut was studied experimentally and numerically. The ...
