Computational and Experimental Fluid Mechanics

    Project Details


    The general purpose of this STVF supported Framework Program is the development of efficient algorithms, their implementation in codes of
    Computational Fluid Mechanics (CFD), and the experimental verification of these codes. Flows of both fundamental and applied nature will be investigated, including flows in industrial process equipment,
    about aerodynamics structures and ships, and flows over bed forms of importance for sediment transport. The experimental
    work will include the development of improved techniques, emphasizing optical methods.
    The objectives are met through a coordinated experimental and theoretical/computational research program, organized in 7 specific projects:
    1. CFD-methods and algorithms
    2. Spectral element simulation of ultrafiltration
    3. Turbulent swirling flows
    4. Near-wall models of turbulence
    5. Flow over bed forms
    6. Flow past ship hull
    7. Development of experimental techniques
    The Framework Program is managed from the Fluid Mechanics Section at ET, where the major efforts are located, but several subprojects are located at other departments at DTU (IMM, FYS, KT, ISH, ISVA) and at AAU (IFE).
    Two late started Ph.D. studies will be completed during 1999. These project deal with the development of improved techniques of PIV and LIF, and exploration of non-linear, two-equation models of turbulence for handling complex flows, respectively.
