3-D Dynamic Simulation of the High-Speed Measurement Turbine under Cavitation
The external turbine can be used on underwater high-speed moving body to measure its own velocity. By establishing the rotating turbine dynamic equations and using UDF programming for secondary development on fluent software, the three-dimensional dynamic simulation of water speed measurement turbine model was achieved. Using this model, under the complex flow environment like cavitation and small attack angle, the dynamics simulation was performed and the results was analyzed to get the turbine movement characteristics. Simulation results show that the simulation model can reflect the variation in characteristics of the turbine caused by the small attack angle at cavitation situation.
