    Study on 3D Unsteady Swirling Recirculating Flow in a Nozzle with a Slotted-tube

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.80, No.2, pp. 87-112, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.080.087
    Abstract Three-dimensional transient simulation is presented for swirling recirculating flow in a nozzle with a slotted-tube (different grooves) and the effect of the groove number is also investigated. The numerical results on the streamline angles are validated by experimental visualization using the surface oil flow technology. In the downstream center of the injectors, the vortex breakdown experiences a transition from bubble- to spiral- breakdown as time is increased. For all cases under study, as the sizes of two recirculation zones near the injector upstream wall and the step retain almost constant, the spiral breakdown shows a periodic development.

    Probabilistic Analysis of Transient Problems by the Least Squares Stochastic Perturbation-Based Finite Element Method

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.80, No.2, pp. 113-140, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.080.113
    Abstract The main aim of this work is to demonstrate a solution to the transient problems for the statistically homogeneous media with random physical parameters. This is done with the use of the stochastic perturbation technique based on the general order Taylor series expansions and the additionally modified implementation of the Finite Element Method. Now, both the Direct Differentiation Method as well as the Response Function Method are employed to form and solve up to the nth order state equations. Computational implementation of both approaches is illustrated using two examples - by determination of the probabilistic moments of the temperature histories… More >

    High-Order Upwind Methods Based on C2-Continuous Two-Node Integrated-RBF Elements for Viscous Flows

    D.-A. An-Vo1, N. Mai-Duy1, T. Tran-Cong1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.80, No.2, pp. 141-178, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.080.141
    Abstract In this paper, 2-node integrated radial basis function elements (IRBFEs) [CMES, vol.72, no.4, pp.299-334, 2011] are further developed for the simulation of incompressible viscous flows in two dimensions. Emphasis is placed on (i) the incorporation of C2-continuous 2-node IRBFEs into the subregion and point collocation frameworks for the discretisation of the stream function-vorticity formulation on Cartesian grids; and (ii) the development of high order upwind schemes based on 2-node IRBFEs for the case of convection-dominant flows. High levels of accuracy and efficiency of the present methods are demonstrated by solutions of several benchmark problems defined on rectangular and non-rectangular domains. More >
