• Drag and Mixing from Forced Mixing Nozzles on Turbofan Engines 

      Zawislak, Maverick
      An opportunity was identified for the suppression of unmixed high bypass ratio turbofan engine thermal signatures via forced mixing nozzles to increase mission safety. A feasibility study was proposed quantifying potential ...
    • Experimental and RANS-CFD Study of Nacelle Drag 

      Zawislak, Maverick (2016-08-26)
      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 

      Crawford, James (2016-08-31)
      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 ...
    • Simulations and validation of an axial-flow pit turbine 

      Murzello, Rowayne
      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 ...
