  5. 5. Computational fluid-dynamics investigations of vortex generators for flow-separation control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Florian von Stillfried; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flow-separation control; vane vortex generator; vortex generator jet; zero-pressure-gradient turbulent boundary layer; adverse-pressure-gradient turbulent boundary layer; statistical modelling; turbulence; Reynolds stress- transport model; computational fluid dynamics;

    Abstract : Many flow cases in fluid dynamics face undesirable flow separation due to ad-verse pressure gradients on wall boundaries. This occurs, for example, due togeometrical reasons as in a highly curved turbine-inlet duct or on flow-controlsurfaces such as wing trailing-edge flaps within a certain angle-of-attack range.
