Solid particle spreading in gas-dispersed confined swirling flow. Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches

M.A. Pakhomov and V.I. Terekhov

Kutateladze Institute of Thermophysics SB RAS, Novosibirsk, Russia

Keywords: two-phase swirling flow, solid particles, flow separation, numerical simulation, model of Reynolds stress transport, Eulerian and full Lagrangian descriptions
Pages: 325338
Abstract >>
Dynamics of a disperse phase in a swirling two-phase flow behind a sudden tube expansion is simulated with the aid of Eulerian and full Lagrangian descriptions. The carrier phase is described by three-dimensional Reynolds averaged NavierStokes equations with consideration of inverse influence of particles on the transport processes in gas. The velocity profiles calculated using these two approaches are practically the same. It is shown that the main difference between the Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches is presented by the concentration profile of the dispersed phase. The Eulerian approach underpredicts the value of particle concentration as compared with the Lagrangian approach (the difference reaches 15-20 %). The dispersed phase concentration predicted by the Lagrangian approach agrees with the measurement data somewhat better than the data obtained through the Eulerian approach.

Keywords: vortex chamber, centrifugal fluidized bed, velocity of two-phase flow
Pages: 339346
Abstract >>
The Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) technique and laser Doppler anemometer (LDA) were used to measure the components of tangential and axial velocities of gas and particles in a vortex chamber with a fluidized bed, particle layer dynamics was estimated qualitatively, and the flow in the vortex chamber with a centrifugal fluidized bed of solid particles was simulated numerically. It is shown that with the growth of gas velocity in the swirler slots, the rotation velocity of bed grows almost linearly, and with an increasing bed mass, the rotation velocity decreases. Data on distributions of the volume fraction of particles and gas flow velocity inside the bed were obtained by numerical calculation.

Pages: 347353
Abstract >>
Using planar optical methods based on laser-induced fluorescence and particle image velocimetry instantaneous velocity fields and passive tracer concentration are measured simultaneously in a model of GT-combustor at realistic flow rates. Spatial distributions of velocity pulsations and passive tracer concentration pulsations are measured at air flow rate about 0.4 kg/s. Correlations of velocity and concentration pulsations are measured. The most intense turbulent mass flux in the region of swirling flow mixing layer was observed. The contribution of advective and turbulent components in the transfer of a passive tracer in the axial direction was estimated.

Omsk Branch of Sobolev Institute of Mathematics SB RAS, Omsk, Russia


Keywords: separated flow past plate, self-sustained vortex-wake oscillations, Karman street
Pages: 361368
Abstract >>
The plane nonlinear initial boundary value problem about the separated flow past a plate set in motion at a constant velocity from the state of rest has been considered. Results of a numerical experiment which have allowed us to trace in detail the vortex-wake formation process behind a vertical plate are reported. It is shown that, after the beginning of the plate motion, several stable vortical structures, including a Karman street, form in succession behind the plate. It is found that, on the emergence of the Karman street, there occurs a sharp and substantial growth of vortex-wake intensity and hydrodynamic drag force with a pulsating time behavior. A conclusion about the origination, in this regime, of self-sustained oscillations of the liquid in the vicinity of the plate is drawn.

Pages: 369381
Abstract >>
The work presents the results of an analysis of starting conditions for some frontal axisymmetric inlets of internal compression tested at freestream Mach numbers  = 3-8.4 in the hot-shot wind tunnels based at Khristianovich Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ITAM). The results of these inlets test are compared with the data of numerical computations of inviscid, laminar, and turbulent flows carried out by the pseudo-unsteady method. There were determined the inlet throat areas limiting either with regard to the inlet starting or with regard to providing the maximally possible degree of geometric compression of the inlet-captured supersonic airstream at its deceleration in the already started inlet. Reshaping of computed flow patterns in the inlets depending on the variation of the mini-mal cross section of the inlet internal duct is analyzed.

Pages: 421430
Abstract >>
The results of the numerical and experimental investigations of the evolution of the disturbances in a hypersonic shock layer on a flat plate streamlined by a flow of the mixture of vibrationally excited gases are presented. The experimental study was conducted in the hot-shot high-enthalpy wind tunnel IT-302 of the ITAM SB RAS. The numerical simulation was carried out with the aid of the ANSYS Fluent package using the solution of the unsteady two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations with the incorporation of the user-created modules and enabling the con-sideration of the vibrational non-equilibrium of the carbon dioxide molecules within the framework of the model of the two-temperature aerodynamics. It was obtained that an increase in the carbon dioxide concentration in the mixture with air leads to a reduction of the intensity of pressure disturbances on the surface. The efficiency (up to 20 %) of the method of sound absorbing coatings in the vibrationally excited flows of the mixture of the carbon dioxide and air has been shown.

Pages: 431447
Abstract >>
Results of a numerical study of performance characteristics of supersonic ejectors with nozzles of different types are reported. The work was carried out with the aim of developing a high-performance ejector for pressure recovery systems of supersonic chemical lasers. A specific feature of the operation of ejectors in pressure recovery systems consists in that, in this case, the ejecting and ejected gases, as they undergo mixing, have different thermodynamic properties, and the ejection coefficient depends on the ratio between the temperatures of the gases and on the ratio of their molecular masses. Since the operation of an ejector is based on the mixing process, the task consisted in intensification of this process using nozzles of special geometries. The performance of ejectors was judged considering an integral parameter, the product of induction by compression ratio. The calculations of the 3D viscous gas flow in the ejector channel were performed using ANSYS software. In verifying the numerical model, a comparison with experimental data obtained earlier on a model ejector facility and during tests of real pressure recovery systems in operation with supersonic chemical lasers was performed.

Pages: 449457
Abstract >>
A class of flowing medium gas lasers with low generator pressures employ supersonic flows with low cavity pressure and are primarily categorized as high throughput systems capable of being scaled up to MW class. These include; Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL) and Hydrogen (Deuterium) Fluoride (HF/DF). The practicability of such laser systems for various applications is enhanced by exhausting the effluents directly to ambient atmosphere. Consequently, ejector based pressure recovery forms a potent configuration for open cycle operation. Conventionally these gas laser systems require at least two ejector stages with low pressure stage being more critical, since it directly entrains the laser media, and the ensuing perturbation of cavity flow, if any, may affect laser operation. Hence, the choice of plausible motive gas injection schemes viz., peripheral or central is a fluid dynamic issue of interest, and a parametric experimental performance comparison would be beneficial. Thus, the focus is to experimentally characterize the effect of variation in motive gas supply pressure, entrainment ratio, back pressure conditions, nozzle injection position operated together with a COIL device and discern the reasons for the behavior.

Keywords: highly loaded low-pressure turbine, off-design performance, turbulence modeling, flow separation, OpenFOAM
Pages: 469482
Abstract >>
The flow field passing through a highly loaded low pressure (LP) turbine cascade is numerically investigated at design and off-design conditions. The Field Operation And Manipulation (OpenFOAM) platform is used as the computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool. In this regard, the influences of grid resolution on the results of k-ε, k-ω, and large-eddy simulation (LES) turbulence models are investigated and compared with those of experimental measurements. A numerical pressure undershoot is appeared near the end of blade pressure surface which is sensitive to grid resolution and flow turbulence modeling. The LES model is able to resolve separation on both coarse and fine grid resolutions. In addition, the off-design flow condition is modeled by negative and positive inflow incidence angles. The numerical experiments show that a separation bubble generated on blade pressure side is predicted by LES. The total pressure drop has also been calculated at incidence angles between -20 and +8. The minimum total pressure drop is obtained by k-ω and LES at design point.
