  1. 1. Methodology for the Assessment of the Effect of Wave Wash on Moored Small Craft

    University essay from KTH/Marina system

    Author : Misael Goicoechea; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Wake wash problems are a rather recent issue within the maritime industry. They involve the potential harmful effects that the waves generated by ships can produce. Erosion of the shore, smothering of local fauna and excessive motion of vessels are just examples of these effects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Comparing a full scale test with FDS, FireFOAM, McCaffrey & Eurocode

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Erik Edin; Mattias Ström; [2019]
    Keywords : FDS; FireFOAM; OpenFOAM; Performance-Based Design; Localized fire.;

    Abstract : In the rapidly growing field of CFD-calculations (Computational Fluid Dynamics), companies and organizations are bringing forth new tools, tools that display an image of a given fire scenario. These tools are developed because they provide time efficiency as well as a sustainable economic approach. READ MORE

  3. 3. CFD Simulation of Fluid Flow During Laser Metal Wire Deposition using OpenFOAM : 3D printing

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Jennifer Lundkvist; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The focus of this work was to simulate the fluid flow within a melt pool geometry, during an additive manufacturing process, implementing the CFD software OpenFOAM version 1806. Two separate models were created and run during this work, the first using a temperature mapping from a finite element (FE) model and the second being a free-standing model with Gaussian distributed laser beam striking down on the top surface.

  4. 4. Robust optimisation of the pressure-gradient distribution in turbulent boundary layers

    University essay from KTH/Mekanik

    Author : Yuki Morita; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In order to better characterise pressure-gradient turbulent boundary layers (TBLs), and to advance the theory of these flows, typically canonical conditions are required. This is achieved by keeping the Clauser pressure-gradient parameter, β, constant along the streamwise direction, see for instance Mellor and Gibson [9] and Bobke et al. READ MORE

  5. 5. CFD analysis of a glider aircraft : Using different RANS solvers and introducing improvements in the design

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Mekanisk värmeteori och strömningslära

    Author : David Perez Sancha; [2019]
    Keywords : CFD; RANS; Standard Cirrus; glider; Fluent; SU2; OpenFOAM; SST; transition; winglet.;

    Abstract : In this study, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations have been carried out in order to investigate and improve the performance of the Standard Cirrus glider, using different Navier-Stokes methods and solving the equations for the steady flow. The work has been divided in two parts: First, a study is performed to test the quality of the transition model (Gamma-ReTheta). READ MORE
