Know Thy Solver- PART II: Projection Methods

Hopefully upon finishing reading Know Thy Solver- PART I, we have consolidated the logic and motivation behind NSE solver segregated algorithms. Our task now is to present an important cornerstone which serves as a building block for ANSYS Fluent pressure-based algorithms as in most other commercial CFD codes - Projection Methods. It is important to note …

Know Thy Solver- PART I: Introduction and Motivation For Segregated NSE Solvers

A successful CFD analysis workflow consists of the following key elements (sometimes by repeating cycles, and sometimes with additional elements as-per-cause): Definition CFD modeling goals according to the model problem at hand: Physics gives us a description of reality or in other words, a model, by such CFD modeling goals should conform to the level …

Understanding The Realizable k-ε Turbulence Model

Most of nowadays CFD simulations are conducted with the Reynolds Averaging approach. Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulation, the "working horse" of industrial CFD is based on the Reynolds decomposition according to which a flow variable is decomposed into mean and fluctuating quantities. When the decomposition is applied to Navier-Stokes equation an extra term known as the Reynolds …
