    R. Savino1, M . Visone2, D. Rossetto3, V. D'Oriano4
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.11, No.4, pp. 331-341, 2015, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2015.011.331
    Abstract This paper presents two applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to super and mega yacht design, based on the Volume of Fluid method. After an overview of recent literature on the subject, the analysis of the hydrodynamic performances of different hull configurations and of different appendage configurations is presented. More >

    Numerical Simulation of Entropy Generation in Hydrogen-Air Burner

    SouadMorsli1,*, Amina Sabeur1, Mohammed El Ganaoui2
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.11, No.4, pp. 342-353, 2015, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2015.011.342
    Abstract The aim of this work is the numerical simulation of the combustion of hydrogen with air in a burner and the numerical solution of local entropy generation rate in the combustion chamber. The effects of equivalence ratio φ and oxygen percentage γ on combustion and entropy generation rates are studied for different φ(ranging from 0 to 1.0) and γ values (ranging from 10 to 30%). The predictions show that the increase of φ (or the decrease of λ ) reduces notably the reaction rate levels. The equations of continuity, of energy and momentum are solved by volume finite using commercial… More >

    Study of the Aeraulic Flows in a Building Including Heating and Air Conditioning Systems

    N. Laaroussi1*, Y. Chihab1, M. Garoum1, L-V. Bénet2, F. Lacroux3
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.11, No.4, pp. 354-365, 2015, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2015.011.354
    Abstract This study is based on the modeling of the air flow in the hall building including heating and air-conditioning systems. The building contains two converter stations “valves” considered as heat sources. Heat transfer in the hall is numerically simulated using the standard k-ε model of turbulence. For a very hot weather, this study aims to evaluate the local temperatures in the ambient air of the hall, with assuming running valves and air conditioning device in open loop with a 35°C inlet temperature. The study has shown that the air conditioning is efficient enough to maintain low level of temperature disparity.… More >
