  • Comparison of thermodynamic models for ice accretion on airfoils
    • Pages: 1004 - 1030
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1004-1030, May 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to assess the strengths and weaknesses of four thermodynamic models used in aircraft icing simulations to orient the development or the choice of an improved thermodynamic model. Design/methodology/approach Four models are compared to assess their capabilities: Messinger, iterative Messinger, extended Messinger and shallow water icing models. They have been implemented in the aero-icing framework, NSCODE-ICE, under development at Polytechnique Montreal since 2012. Comparison is performed over typical rime and glaze ice cases. Furthermore, a manufactured geometry with multiple recirculation zones is proposed as a benchmark test to assess the efficiency in runback water modeling and geometry evolution. Findings The comparison shows that one of the main differences is the runback water modeling. Runback modeling based on the location of the stagnation point fails to capture the water film behavior in the presence of recirculation zones on airfoils. However, runback modeling based on air shear stress is more suitable in this situation and can also handle water accumulation while the other models cannot. Also, accounting for the conduction through the ice layer is found to have a great impact on the final ice shape as it increases the overall freezing fraction. Originality/value This paper helps visualize the effect of different thermodynamic models implemented in the same aero-icing framework. Also, the use of a complex manufactured geometry highlights weaknesses not normally noticeable with classic ice accretion simulations. To help with the visualization, the ice shape is presented with the water layer, which is not shown on typical icing results.

  • Scrutiny of buffet mechanisms in transonic flow
    • Pages: 1031 - 1046
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1031-1046, May 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to show results of numerical simulations of transonic flow around a supercritical airfoil at chord Reynolds number Rec = 3 × 106, with the aim of elucidating the mechanisms responsible for large-scale shock oscillations, namely, transonic buffet. Design/methodology/approach Unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes simulations and detached-eddy simulations provide a preliminary buffet map, while a high fidelity implicit large-eddy simulation with an upstream laminar boundary layer is used to ascertain the physical feasibility of the various buffet mechanisms. Numerical experiments with unsteady RANS highlight the role of waves travelling on pressure side in the buffet mechanism. Estimates of the propagation velocities of coherent disturbances and of acoustic waves are obtained, to check the validity of popular mechanisms based on acoustic feedback from the trailing edge. Findings Unsteady RANS numerical experiments demonstrate that the pressure side of the airfoil plays a marginal role in the buffet mechanism. Implicit LES data show that the only plausible self-sustaining mechanism involves waves scattered from the trailing edge and penetrating the sonic region from above the suction side shock. An interesting side result of this study is that buffet appears to be more intense in the case that the boundary layer state upstream of the shock is turbulent, rather than laminar. Originality/value The results of the study will be of interest to any researcher involved with transonic buffet.

  • Streamwise vortex generator for separation reduction on wind turbine
           rotors
    • Pages: 1047 - 1060
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1047-1060, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to describe numerical investigations focused on the reduction of separation and the aerodynamic enhancement of wind turbine blades by a rod vortex generator (RVG). Design/methodology/approach A flow modelling approach through the use of a Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes solver is used. The numerical tools are validated with experimental data for the NREL Phase VI rotor and the S809 aerofoil. The effect of rod vortex generator’s (RVG) configuration on aerofoil aerodynamic performance, flow structure and separation is analysed. RVGs’ chordwise locations and spanwise distance are considered, and the optimum configuration of the RVG is applied to the wind turbine rotor. Findings Results show that streamwise vortices created by RVGs lead to modification of flow structure in boundary layer. As a result, the implementation of RVGs on aerofoil has proven to decrease the flow separation and enhance the aerodynamic performance of aerofoils. The effect on flow structure and aerodynamic performance has shown to be dependent on dimensions, chordwise location and spanwise distribution of rods. The implementation of devices with the optimum configuration has shown to increase aerodynamic performance and to significantly reduce separation for selected conditions. Application of rods to the wind turbine rotor has proven to avoid the spanwise penetration of flow separation where applied, leading to reduction of flow separation and to aerodynamic enhancement. Originality/value The proposed RVGs have shown potential to enhance the aerodynamic performance of wind turbine rotors and profiles, making devices an alternative solution to the classical vortex generators for wind turbine applications.

  • Wake flow analysis and control on a 47° slant angle Ahmed body
    • Pages: 1061 - 1079
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1061-1079, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to present numerical investigations of the flow dynamic characteristics of a 47° Ahmed Body to identify wake flow control strategy leading to drag coefficient reduction, which could be tested later on sport utility vehicles. Design/methodology/approach This study begins with a mean flow topology description owing to dynamic and spectral analysis of the aerodynamic tensor. Then, the sparse promoting dynamic modal decomposition method is discussed and compared to other modal approaches. This method is then applied on the wall and wake pressure to determine frequencies of the highest energy pressure modes and their transfers to other frequency modes. This analysis is then used to design appropriated feedback flow control strategies. Findings This dynamic modal decomposition highlights a reduced number of modes at low frequency which drive the flow dynamics. The authors especially notice that the pressure mode at a Strouhal number of 0.22, based on the width between feet, induces aerodynamic losses close to the rear end. Strategy of the proposed control loop enables to dampen the energy of this mode, but it has been transferred to lower frequency mode outside of the selected region of interest. Originality/value This analysis and methodology of feedback control shows potential drag reduction with appropriated modal energy transfer management.

  • Passive flow control application for rotorcraft in transonic conditions
    • Pages: 1080 - 1095
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1080-1095, May 2018.
      Purpose Helicopter rotor blades are usually aerodynamically limited by the severe conditions present in every revolution: strong shock wave boundary layer interaction on the advancing side and dynamic stall on the retreating side. Therefore, different flow control strategies might be applied to improve the aerodynamic performance. Design/methodology/approach The present research is focussed on the application of passive rod vortex generators (RVGs) to control the flow separation induced by strong shock waves on helicopter rotor blades. The formation and development in time of the streamwise vortices are also investigated for a channel flow. Findings The proposed RVGs are able to generate streamwise vortices as strong as the well-known air-jet vortex generators. It has been demonstrated a faster vortex formation for the rod type. Therefore, this flow control device is preferred for applications in which a quick vortex formation is required. Besides, RVGs were implemented on helicopters rotor blades improving their aerodynamic performance (ratio thrust/power consumption). Originality/value A new type of vortex generator (rod) has been investigated in several configurations (channel flow and rotor blades).

      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1096-1116, May 2018.
      Purpose The Lattice Boltzmann (LB) method offers an alternative to conventional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods. However, its practical use for complex turbulent flows of engineering interest is still at an early stage. This paper aims to outline an LB wall-modeled large-eddy simulation (WMLES) solver. Design/methodology/approach The solver is dedicated to complex high-Reynolds flows in the context of WMLES. It relies on an improved LB scheme and can handle complex geometries on multi-resolution block structured grids. Findings Dynamic and acoustic characteristics of a turbulent airflow past a rod-airfoil tandem are examined to test the capabilities of this solver. Detailed direct comparisons are made with both experimental and numerical reference data. Originality/value This study allows assessing the potential of an LB approach for industrial CFD applications.

  • Morphing airfoils analysis using dynamic meshing
    • Pages: 1117 - 1133
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1117-1133, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to use dynamic meshing to perform CFD analyses of a NACA 0012 airfoil fitted with a morphing trailing edge (TE) flap when it undergoes static and time-dependent morphing. The steady CFD predictions of the original and morphing airfoils are validated against published data. The study also investigates an airfoil with a hinged TE flap for aerodynamic performance comparison. The study further extends to an unsteady CFD analysis of a dynamically morphing TE flap for proof-of-concept and also to realise its potential for future applications. Design/methodology/approach An existing parametrization method was modified and implemented in a user-defined function (UDF) to perform dynamic meshing which is essential for morphing airfoil unsteady simulations. The results from the deformed mesh were verified to ensure the validity of the adopted mesh deformation method. ANSYS Fluent software was used to perform steady and unsteady analysis and the results were compared with computational predictions. Findings Steady computational results are in good agreement with those from OpenFOAM for a non-morphing airfoil and for a morphed airfoil with a maximum TE deflection equal to 5 per cent of the chord. The results obtained by ANSYS Fluent show that an average of 6.5 per cent increase in lift-to-drag ratio is achieved, compared with a hinged flap airfoil with the same TE deflection. By using dynamic meshing, unsteady transient simulations reveal that the local flow field is influenced by the morphing motion. Originality/value An airfoil parametrisation method was modified to introduce time-dependent morphing and used to drive dynamic meshing through an in-house-developed UDF. The morphed airfoil’s superior aerodynamic performance was demonstrated in comparison with traditional hinged TE flap. A methodology was developed to perform unsteady transient analysis of a morphing airfoil at high angles of attack beyond stall and to compare with published data. Unsteady predictions have shown signs of rich flow features, paving the way for further research into the effects of a dynamic flap on the flow physics.

  • Distortion reconstruction in S-ducts from wall static pressure
           measurements
    • Pages: 1134 - 1155
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1134-1155, May 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to report the attempts for predicting “on-the-fly” flow distortion in the engine entrance plane of a highly curved S-duct from wall static pressure measurements. Such a technology would be indispensable to trigger active flow control devices to mitigate the intense flow separations which occur in specific flight conditions. Design/methodology/approach Evaluation of different reconstruction algorithms is performed on the basis of data extracted from a Zonal Detached Eddy Simulation (ZDES) of a well-documented S-Duct (Garnier et al., AIAA J., 2015). Contrary to RANS methods, such a hybrid approach makes unsteady distortions available, which are necessary information for reconstruction algorithm assessment. Findings The best reconstruction accuracy is obtained with the artificial neural network (ANN) but the improvement compared to the classical linear stochastic estimation (LSE) is minor. The different inlet distortion coefficients are not reconstructed with the same accuracy. KA2 coefficient is finally identified as the more suited for activation of the control device. Originality/value LSE and its second-order variant (quadratic stochastic estimation [QSE]) are applied for reconstructing instantaneous stagnation pressure in the flow field. The potential improvement of an algorithm based on an ANN is also evaluated. The statistical link between the wall sensors and 40-Kulite rake sensors are carefully discussed and the accuracy of the reconstruction of the most used distortion coefficients (DC60, RDI, CDI and KA2) is quantified for each estimation technique.

  • Columnar vortex generator for flow control over a ski-jump ramp
    • Pages: 1156 - 1168
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1156-1168, May 2018.
      Purpose Aircraft carriers are essential for modern naval operations. Takeoff maneuver is critical because of the short runway distance. The ski-jump ramp is a system which increases the angle of attack of the aircraft, so an extra lift is obtained. Regarding the flow configuration over the ski-jump ramp at ahead wind conditions, the complex aerodynamic environment generated by the ramp configuration influences aircraft operations. This flow field is mainly characterized by a low velocity recirculation bubble that reduces aircraft performances. The purpose of this paper is to find a solution to reduce these adverse effects, by means of flow control devices, which opens a wide field of research. Design/methodology/approach This paper presents wind tunnel tests performed to study the flow configuration in the vicinity of the ski-jump ramp and the flow control devices effects. A 1:100 scaled ship model was built to develop experimental tests by using flow control devices fabricated by means of additive manufacturing. Particle image velocimetry technique was used to measure the velocity flow field and the turbulence intensity maps. Findings Interesting results were obtained when the angle between the intersection of the ski-jump ramp and the columnar vortex generator (CVG) is modified. The results showed a high reduction of the recirculation bubble generated over the flight deck. Originality/value CVG has presented encouraging results as a passive flow control device. A study of the variation of CVG geometrical parameters has been developed.

  • Active flow control analysis at the rear of an SUV
    • Pages: 1169 - 1186
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1169-1186, May 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to present an experimental investigation of an active flow control solution mounted at rear of a sport utility vehicle (SUV) with the objective of drag reduction, thanks to a selection of flow control parameters leading to a pressure increase on the tailgate. Design/methodology/approach A flow control design of experiments was conducted with a pulsed jet system mounted on the top and sides of the rear window of the vehicle. The wall pressure, instantaneous velocity and drag were measured with this prototype in a wind tunnel. A dynamic modal decomposition (DMD) analysis of the pressure enables to describe the pressure fluctuations. Fluid dynamic computations show relation between pressure and velocity fields. Findings Measurements with this prototype in the wind tunnel revealed small improvements in drag for the best flow control configurations. This small benefit is because of the core of the upper span wise vortex further away from the rear window than the lower span wise vortex. These small improvements in drag were confirmed with pressure measurements on the rear window and tailgate. The DMD analysis of the surface pressure showed a low frequency pendulum oscillation on the lower area of the tailgate, linked with low velocity frequencies in the shear layers near the tailgate. Originality/value Experimental and numerical results show interest to increase pressure at bottom of the rear end of this SUV prototype. The dynamic description of the wall pressure shows importance of flow control solutions reducing pressure fluctuations at low frequencies in the lower area of the tailgate.

  • Effects of free-stream turbulence on the global pressure fluctuation of
           compressible transitional flows in a low-pressure turbine cascade
    • Pages: 1187 - 1202
      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1187-1202, May 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to investigate global pressure fluctuations in compressible transitional flows in a low-pressure turbine cascade because of variations in the free-stream turbulence and its interaction with the boundary layers. Design/methodology/approach Transition process resolving numerical simulations are performed with different types of inflow turbulence. The unsteady three-dimensional fully compressible Navier–Stokes equations are solved using a sixth-order compact difference and a tenth-order filtering method. First, simulations of both K-regime and bypass transitions are conducted for a flat plate boundary layer to validate the use of the filter in computing different transition routes. Second, computations of the cascade flows are conducted. Cases of no free-stream turbulence, isotropic free-stream turbulence of 5 per cent and wakes from an upstream cylinder are compared. For wakes, variations in wake trajectory depending on the cylinder blade relative position are also taken into account. Findings The different transition routes are successfully reproduced by the present method even with strong filtering. When feedback phenomena occur near the trailing edge, high-frequency oscillations dominate in the flow field. Low-frequency oscillations become dominant when the blade boundary layer becomes turbulent. Thus, the effects of the free-stream turbulence and its interaction with the boundary layer appear as changes in the global pressure fluctuation. Originality/value The free-stream turbulence qualitatively affects global pressure fluctuations, which become a medium to convey boundary-layer information away from the cascade.

      Purpose This paper aims to provide the results of investigations concerning an influence of the tyre with longitudinal grooves on the car body aerodynamics. It is considered as an important aspect affecting the vehicle aerodynamic drag. Design/methodology/approach To investigate a contribution of grooved tyres to the overall vehicle drag, three wind tunnel experimental campaigns were performed (two by Peugeot Société Anonyme Peugeot Citroen, one at the Lodz University of Technology). In parallel, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations were conducted with the ANSYS CFX software to enable formulation of wider conclusions. Findings The research shows that optimised tread patterns can be derived on a single tyre via a CFD study in combination with a controlled experiment to deliver designs actively lowering the overall vehicle aerodynamic drag. Practical implications A reduction in the aerodynamic drag is one of ways to decrease vehicle fuel consumption. Alternatively, it can be translated into an increase in the maximum travel velocity and the maximum distance driven (key factor in electric vehicles), as well as in a reduction of CO2 emissions. Finally, it can improve the vehicle driving and steering stability. Originality/value The tyre tread pattern analysis on isolated wheels provides an opportunity to cut costs of R&D and could be a step towards isolating aerodynamic properties of tyres, irrespective of the car body on which they are applied.

  • Aerodynamic prediction of a projectile fitted with fins

      Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Volume 28, Issue 5, Page 1218-1236, May 2018.
      Purpose The present paper deals with weapon aerodynamics and aims to describe preliminary studies that were conducted for developing the next generation of long-range guided ammunition. Over history, ballistic research scientists were constantly investigating new artillery systems capable of overcoming limitations of range, accuracy and manoeuvrability. While futuristic technologies are increasingly under development, numerous issues concerning current powdered systems still need to be addressed. In this context, the present work deals with the design and the optimization of a new concept of long-range projectile with regard to multidisciplinary fields, including flight scenario, steering strategy, mechanical actuators or size of payload. Design/methodology/approach Investigations are conducted for configurations that combine existing full calibre 155 mm guided artillery shell with a set of lifting surfaces. As the capability of the ammunition highly depends on lifting surfaces in terms of number, shape or position, a parametric study has to be conducted for determining the best aerodynamic architecture. To speed-up this process, initial estimations are conducted thanks to low computational cost methods suitable for preliminary design requirements, in terms of time, accuracy and flexibility. The WASP code (Wing-Aerodynamic-eStimation-for-Projectiles) has been developed for rapidly predicting aerodynamic coefficients (static and dynamic) of a set of lifting surfaces fitted on a projectile fuselage, as a function of geometry and flight conditions, up to transonic velocities. Findings In the present study, WASP predictions at Mach 0.7 of both normal force and pitching moment coefficients are assessed for two configurations. Originality/value Analysis is conducted by gathering results from WASP, computational-fluid-dynamics (CFD) simulations, wind-tunnel experiments and free-flight tests. Obtained results demonstrate the ability of WASP code to be used for preliminary design steps.

    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate oil-gas slug formation in horizontal straight pipe and its associated pressure gradient, slug liquid holdup and slug frequency. Design/methodology/approach The abrupt change in gas/liquid velocities, which causes transition of flow patterns, was analyzed using incompressible volume of fluid method to capture the dynamic gas-liquid interface. The validity of present model and its methodology was validated using Baker’s flow regime chart for 3.15 inches diameter horizontal pipe and with existing experimental data to ensure its correctness. Findings The present paper proposes simplified correlations for liquid holdup and slug frequency by comparison with numerous existing models. The paper also identified correlations that can be used in operational oil and gas industry and several outlier models that may not be applicable. Research limitations/implications The correlation may be limited to the range of material properties used in this paper. Practical implications Numerically derived liquid holdup and holdup frequency agreed reasonably with the experimentally derived correlations. Social implications The models could be used to design pipeline and piping systems for oil and gas production. Originality/value The paper simulated all the seven flow regimes with superior results compared to existing methodology. New correlations derived numerically are compared to published experimental correlations to understand the difference between models.

  • Effect of temperature on the MHD stagnation-point flow past an isothermal
           plate for a Boussinesquian Newtonian and micropolar fluid
    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose This paper aims to analyze the steady two-dimensional stagnation-point flow of an electrically conducting Newtonian or micropolar fluid when the obstacle is uniformly heated. Design/methodology/approach The governing boundary layer equations are transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations using appropriate similarity transformations. Some analytical considerations about existence and uniqueness of the solution are obtained. The system is then solved numerically using the bvp4c function in MATLAB. Findings If the temperature of the obstacle Tw coincides with the environment temperature T0, then the motion reduces to the usual orthogonal stagnation-point flow; if Tw = T0, then it is necessary to include in the similarity function describing the velocity an oblique part due to the temperature. Also, the presence of a uniform external magnetic field orthogonal to the obstacle is examined. In all cases, the motion is reduced to a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations with boundary conditions, whose solution is discussed numerically when the Prandtl and the Hartmann number varies. Originality/value The present results are original and new for the problem of magnetohydrodynamic mixed convection in the plane stagnation-point flow of a Newtonian or a micropolar fluid over a vertical flat plate. At infinity, the motion approaches the orthogonal stagnation-point flow of an inviscid fluid; the effect of an uniform external magnetic field is considered, and the obstacle has a uniform temperature.

  • Unsteady flow and heat transfer over a permeable stretching/shrinking
           sheet with generalized slip velocity
    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose This study aims to investigate the unsteady two-dimensional viscous flow and heat transfer over an unsteady permeable stretching/shrinking sheet (surface) with generalized slip velocity condition. Design/methodology/approach Similarity transformation is used to reduce the system of partial differential equations into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The resulting equations are then solved numerically using “bvp4c” function in MATLAB software. Findings Dual solutions are found for a certain range of the unsteady, suction and stretching/shrinking parameters. Stability analysis is performed, and it is revealed that the first (upper branch) solution is stable and physically realizable, whereas the second (lower branch) solution is unstable. Practical implications The results obtained can be used to explain the characteristics and applications of the generalized slip in boundary layer flow. Such condition is applied for particulate fluids such as foams, emulsions, polymer solutions and suspensions. Furthermore, the phenomenon of stretching/shrinking sheet can be found on the manufacturing of polymer sheets, rising and shrinking balloon or moving and shrinking polymer film. Originality/value The present numerical results are original and new for the study of unsteady flow and heat transfer over a permeable stretching/shrinking sheet with generalized slip velocity.

  • Convective–radiative heat transfer in a cavity filled with a nanofluid
           under the effect of a nonuniformly heated plate
    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this study is to examine the radiation effect on the natural convective heat transfer of an alumina–water nanofluid in a square cavity in the presence of centered nonuniformly heated plate. Design/methodology/approach The square cavity filled with alumina–water nanofluid has a nonuniformly heated plate placed horizontally or vertically at its center. The plate is heated isothermally with linearly varying temperature. The vertical walls are cooled isothermally with a constant temperature, while the horizontal walls are insulated. The governing equations have been discretized using finite volume method on a uniformly staggered grid system. Simulations were carried out for different values of the heated plate nonuniformity parameter (λ = –1, 0 and 1), the nanoparticles solid volume fraction (Φ = 0.01 − 0.04) and the radiation parameter (Rd = 0 – 2) at the Rayleigh number of Ra = 1e+07. Findings It is found that the total heat transfer rate is enhanced with an increase in the radiation parameter for both the horizontal and vertical plates. The role of nanoparticles addition to the base fluid can have dual effects on the heat transfer rate by augmenting and dampening for the absence of radiation while it dampens the heat transfer rate for the presence of radiation. Originality/value The originality of this work is to analyze steady natural convection in a square cavity filled with a water-based nanofluid in the presence of centered nonuniformly heated plate. The results would benefit scientists and engineers to become familiar with the analysis of convective heat and mass transfer in nanofluids, and the way to predict the properties of nanofluid convective flow in advanced technical systems, in industrial sectors including transportation, power generation, chemical sectors, electronics, etc.

  • An adaptive approach for prediction of propellant feedline dynamics in

    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose This paper aims to propose an adaptive unstructured finite volume procedure for efficient prediction of propellant feedline dynamics in fluid network. Design/methodology/approach The adaptive strategy is based on feedback control of errors defined by changes in key variables in two subsequent time steps. Findings As an evaluation of the proposed approach, two feedline dynamics problems are formulated and solved. First problem involves prediction of pressure surges in a pipeline that has entrapped air and the second is a conjugate heat transfer problem involving prediction of chill down of cryogenic transfer line. Numerical predictions with the adaptive strategy are compared with available experimental data and are found to be in good agreement. The adaptive strategy is found to be efficient and robust for predicting feedline dynamics in flow network at reduced CPU time. Originality/value This study uses an adaptive reduced-order network modeling approach for fluid network.

  • Determination of an additive time- and space-dependent coefficient in the
           heat equation
    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this study is to provide an insight and to solve numerically the identification of an unknown coefficient of radiation/absorption/perfusion appearing in the heat equation from additional temperature measurements. Design/methodology/approach First, the uniqueness of solution of the inverse coefficient problem is briefly discussed in a particular case. However, the problem is still ill-posed as small errors in the input data cause large errors in the output solution. For numerical discretization, the finite difference method combined with a regularized nonlinear minimization is performed using the MATLAB toolbox routine lsqnonlin. Findings Numerical results presented for three examples show the efficiency of the computational method and the accuracy and stability of the numerical solution even in the presence of noise in the input data. Research limitations/implications The mathematical formulation is restricted to identify coefficients which separate additively in unknown components dependent individually on time and space, and this may be considered as a research limitation. However, there is no research implication to overcome this, as the known input data are also limited to single measurements of temperature at a particular time and space location. Practical implications As noisy data are inverted, the study models real situations in which practical measurements are inherently contaminated with noise. Social implications The identification of the additive time- and space-dependent perfusion coefficient will be of great interest to the bio-heat transfer community and applications. Originality/value The current investigation advances previous studies which assumed that the coefficient multiplying the lower-order temperature term depends on time or space separately. The knowledge of this physical property coefficient is very important in biomedical engineering for understanding the heat transfer in biological tissues. The originality lies in the insight gained by performing for the first time numerical simulations of inversion to find the coefficient additively dependent on time and space in the heat equation from noisy measurements.

  • An adaptive fully discontinuous Galerkin level set method for
           incompressible multiphase flows
    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose This study aims to focus on the development of a high-order discontinuous Galerkin method for the solution of unsteady, incompressible, multiphase flows with level set interface formulation. Design/methodology/approach Nodal discontinuous Galerkin discretization is used for incompressible Navier–Stokes, level set advection and reinitialization equations on adaptive unstructured elements. Implicit systems arising from the semi-explicit time discretization of the flow equations are solved with a p-multigrid preconditioned conjugate gradient method, which minimizes the memory requirements and increases overall run-time performance. Computations are localized mostly near the interface location to reduce computational cost without sacrificing the accuracy. Findings The proposed method allows to capture interface topology accurately in simulating wide range of flow regimes with high density/viscosity ratios and offers good mass conservation even in relatively coarse grids, while keeping the simplicity of the level set interface modeling. Efficiency, local high-order accuracy and mass conservation of the method are confirmed through distinct numerical test cases of sloshing, dam break and Rayleigh–Taylor instability.

  • Effects of MHD mixed convection with non-uniform heat source/sink and
           cross-diffusion over exponentially stretching sheet
    • Abstract: International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the magnetohydrodynamics mixed convection flow over an exponentially stretching surface in the presence of non-uniform heat source/sink and cross-diffusion. Adequate non-similar transformations are used to transform governing mixed convection boundary layer equations to dimensionless form. Design/methodology/approach These dimensionless partial differential equations are solved by using implicit finite difference scheme in conjunction with Quasi-linearization technique. Findings The effects of admissible parameters such as Eckert number (Ec), the ratio of buoyancy forces parameter (N), non-uniform heat source/sink, Soret and Dufour numbers on flow, temperature and concentration distributions are discussed and analysed through graphs. In addition, the results for skin friction coefficient, Sherwood number and Nusselt number are presented and discussed graphically. Originality/value In literature, no research work has been found in similar to this research paper.
