DOI : 10.6112/kscfe.2015.20.2.001
In this study, a numerical prediction on propulsive performance of a ducted propeller in open water condition was carried out by solving Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes(RANS) equation using computational fluid dynamics(CFD). A configuration of propeller Ka-470 inside duct 19A was considered. Hexahedral grid system was generated by dividing whole computational domain into three separate regions; propeller, duct and outer flow region. A commercial CFD software, ANSYS-CFX was used for numerical simulations. Results were compared with experimental data and showed considerable improvement in accuracy, in comparison to those from surface panel method which is based on potential flow assumption. The results also exhibited the importance of grid system within the gap between the inner surface of duct and blade tip for accurate prediction of propulsive performance of ducted propeller.

This paper attempts to evaluate the accuracy and efficiency of a design optimization procedure by combining wavelets-based multi resolution analysis method and proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) technique. Aerodynamic design procedure calls for high fidelity computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations and the consideration of large number of flow conditions and design constraints. Thus, even with significant computing power advancement, current level of integrated design process requires substantial computing time and resources. POD reduces the degree of freedom of full system by conducting singular value decomposition for various field simulations. In this research, POD combined Design Optimization model is proposed and its efficiency and accuracy are to be evaluated. For additional efficiency improvement of the procedure, multi resolution analysis method is also being employed during snapshot constructions (POD training period). The proposed design procedure was applied to the optimization of wing aerodynamic performance. Throughout the research, it was confirmed that the POD/MRA design procedure could significantly reduce the total design turnaround time and also capture all detailed complex flow features as in full order analysis.

DOI : 10.6112/kscfe.2015.20.2.016
The pressure is generally lower than that of the freestream at the base of a missile body due to the energy loss by the flow separation around the edge of the base. The base pressure changes in the presence of the thrust jet due to the interaction between the base flow of the missile and the jet flow. In this study, behavior of the missile base pressure by the change of the jet exit pressure and the freestream condition is investigated using the CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) method. Effects of the grid type and the freestream condition are tested. The results are compared with the semi-empirical predictions and the flight test data. The CFD results agree well with the flight test data. The semi-empirical predictions overestimate the base pressure when jet thrust is strong for low freestream speed.

DOI : 10.6112/kscfe.2015.20.2.023
generation ice accretion analysis program has been developed and validated for various icing conditions. The essential feature of the
generation code lies in its capability of handling general 3-D geometry and improved accuracy. The entire velocity fields are obtained based on Navier-Stokes equations in order to take the massively separated flow field into account. Unlike
generation code, the droplet trajectories are calculated using Eulerian approach, which is adopted to yield appropriate collection efficiency even in the shadow region. For improved thermodynamic analysis on the surfaces, water film model and modified Messinger model are newly included in the present analysis. The ice shape for a given time step is obtained by considering the exact amount of ice accreted on the surface. Each module of the icing analysis code has been seamlessly integrated on the OpenFOAM platform. The developed code was validated against available experimental data for 2D airfoils and 3D DLR-F4. Due to the lack of experimental data, the computed results of DLR-F4 were compared with those obtained from FENSAP-ICE, which is state-of-the-art 3D icing analysis code. It was clearly shown that the present code produces comparable results to those of FENSAP-ICE, in terms of prediction accuracy and the capability of handling general 3-D geometries.

DOI : 10.6112/kscfe.2015.20.2.037
A parametric study on the shapes of bobsleigh bumpers has been performed to reduce the aerodynamic drag. Effects of geometric parameters, such as leading angle of leading bumper, the ratio of minimum width to maximum width of leading bumper, the ratio of leading bumper length to trailing bumper length, trailing angle of trailing bumper, and the ratio of bumper height to installation location of bumper from the bottom of bobsleigh, on the aerodynamic performance of the bobsleigh were estimated using 3-D Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations. The turbulence was analyzed using the shear stress turbulence model. Reynolds number based on the hydraulic diameter of the external flow channel was in the range of 150,000~1,000,000. Numerical results for drag coefficient were validated compared to experimental data. Ranges of the five geometric parameters were determined according to the rule of Federation Internationale de Bobsleigh et de Tobaganning. The aerodynamic performance of the bobsleigh sled was most sensitive to the leading angle of leading bumper and the ratio of minimum width to maximum width of leading bumper.

DOI : 10.6112/kscfe.2015.20.2.046
In this paper, we have developed numerical model for particulated flow through narrow slit using Eulerian-Granular method. Commercial software (FLUENT) was utilized as simulation tool and main focus was to identify the effect from various numerical options for modeling of solid particles as continuos phase in granular flow. Gidaspow model was chosen as basic model for solid viscosity and drag model. And lun-et-al model was used as solid pressure and radial distribution model, respectively. Several other model options in FLUENT were tested considering the cross related effect. Mass flow rate of the particulate through the slit was measured to compare. Due to the high volume density of the stacked particulates above the slit, effect from various numerical options were not significant. The numerical results from basic model were also compared with experimental results and showed very good agreement. The effects from the characteristics of particles such as diameter, angle of internal friction, and collision coefficient were also analyzed for future design of velocity resistance layer in solar thermal absorber. Angle of internal friction was found to be the dominat variable for the particle mass flow rate considerably. More defined 3D model along with energy equation for complete solar thermal absorber design is currently underway.

In this paper, study of high speed train pantograph arm shape and panhead cross-section for aerodynamic drag and noise reduction is performed. In previous research, it is known that knee of pantograph arm and panhead of pantogpraph are main sources of noise from high speed train pantograph.

Delayed Detached-Eddy Simulation was conducted to investigate surface pressure coefficient distribution and surface pressure fluctuation over an ONERA 70-degree delta wing at a high angle of attack. Time-averaged surface pressure distribution is directly affected by the primary vortices, whereas the pressure fluctuation is influenced by the unsteady fluctuating boundary layer over the surface. And pressure coefficient, velocity, pressure fluctuation, and turbulent kinetic energy were analyzed along the vortex core in order to investigate the process of vortex breakdown. Consequently, strong pressure fluctuations were found where the vortex breakdown was occurred at x~620 mm. The turbulent kinetic energy abruptly increased and followed after the vortex breakdown.

For Underwater vehicles, Unwanted roll excursions are inevitable as they are caused by induced propeller torque, disturbances, and banking motion during turns. To estimate the manoeuvring performance of underwater vehicle, it is necessary to obtain the roll coefficient of body. This paper was covered estimation of roll coefficient of underwater vehicle using STAR-CCM+, commercial CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) code. The RANS equations for incompressible fluid flows was solved numerically by using a finite volume method. An MRF(Moving Reference Frame) Method was Also adopted for rotations of body. For the validation, the flow around a DARPA SUBOFF bare hull model was simulated and good agreement with experiments was obtained. And Pure roll coefficients were calculated and campared with the experimental data which were presented by Seoul National University. Finally, an underwater vehicle model with propeller was simulated and analyzed for estimation of roll coefficient variation caused by induced propeller torque.

Blood pump analysis process includes both mechanical and bio-mechanical aspects. Since a blood pump is a mechanical device, it has to be mechanically efficient. On the other hand, blood pumps function is sensitively related to the blood recirculation; hence, bio-factors such as hemolysis and thrombosis become important. This paper numerically investigates the mechanical and bio-mechanical performances of the Rotaflow in the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation(ECMO), Ventricular Assist Device(VAD), and full-load conditions. The operational conditions are defined as(400[mmHg], 5[L/min.]), (100[mmHg], 3[L/min.]), and (600[mmHg], 10[L/min.]) for ECMO, VAD, and full-load conditions, respectively. The results are presented and analyzed from the mechanical aspect via performance curves, and from bio-mechanical aspect via focusing on hemolytic characteristics. Regions of top and bottom cavities show recirculation in both ECMO and VAD condtions. In addition, Eulerian-based calculation of modified index of hemolysis(MIH) has been investigated. The results demonstrate that the VAD condition has the least risk of hemolysis among the others, while the full-load condition has the highest risk.

Fluid-body interaction analysis of floating body with six degree-of-freedom motion is presented. In this study, three-dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are employed as a governing equation. The numerical method is based on a finite-volume approach on a cartesian grid together with a fractional-step method. To represent the body motion, the immersed boundary method for direct forcing is employed. In order to simulate the coupled six degree-of-freedom motion, Euler's equations based on rigid body dynamics are utilized. To represent the complex body shape, level-set based algorithm is utilized. In order to describe the free surface motion, the volume of fluid method utilizing the tangent of hyperbola for interface capturing scheme is employed. This study showed three different continuums(air, water and body) are simultaneously simulated by newly developed code. To demonstrate the applicability of the current approach, two different problems(dam-breaking with stationary obstacle and water entry) are simulated and all results are validated.
