    Abstract : Many flow cases in fluid dynamics face undesirable flow separation due torising static pressure on wall boundaries. This occurs e.g. due to geometry as ina highly curved turbine inlet duct or e. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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.
