Abstract: Based on the principle and method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), using the software, FLUENT, the inner flow field in a mixed-flow stirred reactor was simulated and the flow details were studied roundly. This article analyzed the three-dimensional velocity field distribution and testified the reliability of numerical simulation to a certain extent. The simulated effect was proved effective.

Abstract: Based on the principle and method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), using the software, FLUENT, the inner water flow field in a hydrocyclone with air column was simulated and the flow details were studied roundly. This article analyzed the three-dimensional velocity field distribution, pressure field distribution and testified the reliability of numerical simulation to a certain extent. The “mixture” model was used to simulate the air column the first time and contrasted with experimental result, the simulated effect was proved effective. The results of this paper provided a good base and reference for the further research of solid-liquid separation.

Abstract: Well site safety plan, which included well design, emergencyresponse plan (ERP) etc, is the key prerequisite for drilling the critical sour gas well. A right emergency response zone (EPZ) is quite difficult to make sure on the site, because that it affected by release rate of H2S, gas composition, the well site surrounding topography, and other specific circumstances. To solve this problem, A blowout simulation software based on FLUENT be developed, which could predict affected areas when the critical sour blowout, the gas flow direction, and the H2S concentration distribution. On this basis, the safety layout surrounding the well site can be planned. The article provides the design structure and main functions of the software. The software can provide the theoretical basis of industrial safety.

Abstract: Magnetostriction is the deformation that spontaneously occurs in ferromagnetic materials when an external magnetic field is applied. In applications broadly defined for actuation, magnetostrictive material Terfenol-D (Tb0.3Dy0.7Fe1.9) possesses intrinsic rapid response times while providing small and accurate displacements and high-energy efficiency. These are some of the essential parameters required for fast control of fuel injector valves for decreased engine emissions and lower fuel consumption compared with the traditional solenoid fuel injection system. A prototype CNG fuel injector assembly was designed which included magnetostrictive material Terfenol-D as the actuator material. A 2D cross-sectional geometry of the injector assembly, which incorporated both linear and non-linear magnetic properties of the corresponding materials, was modeled in ANSYS for 2D axisymmetric magnetic simulation. Subsequently, a 3D replica of the CNG flow conduit was modeled in GAMBIT with the resultant injector lift. The meshed conduit was then simulated in FLUENT using the 3D time independent segregated solver with the Standard k  , the Realizable k   and RSM turbulence models to predict the mass flow rate of CNG to be injected. Eventually, the simulated flow rate was verified against mathematically derived static flow rate required for a standard automotive fuel injector considering standard horsepower, BSFC and injector duty cycle.

Abstract: t is important for dynamic characteristics of electromagnetic release with oil dashpot to calculate the oil damping force. The formula of the oil damping force is deduced by the theoretical formula of viscous damper or according to the experimental results. Therefore, a way to analyze oil damping force of electromagnetic release with oil dashpot is proposed based on Fluent due to the limitations of the two methods in this paper. The curve which is the speed of the plunger variations of the oil damping force is drawn through the numerical analysis of the flow field and the index of the speed is fitted.

Abstract: Any aircraft wing is the major component which will play vital role in the generation of lift and at different maneuvering moments throughout the flight. So to maintain this good maneuverability the aircraft wing has to undergo deferent deflections called angle of attack such that the high lift and low drag or vice versa can be settled in the flight. Taking this as the motivation the analysis was carried out on the standard wing airfoil comparing with new designed airfoil. Analyze the numerical simulation values like coefficient of lift, coefficient of Drag, Lift, Drag, and Energy parameters with wind tunnel data to predict accuracy for both the airfoils. Through the selected public literature standard airfoil data and designed airfoil data has been chosen, the geometry was created in the GAMBIT and also the meshing by selecting the suitable c-grid and rectangular grid for the better flow analysis in the FLUENT. The mesh file was imported into the FLUENT software there suitable boundary conditions and operating conditions are given for successful flow convergence. Finally analyzing these results are expecting to be best suitable for good aeromechanical features.

Abstract: The choice of wind measured data and numerical simulation method has an important impact on the results of wind resource assessment. This paper will take a wind farm, in Yangjiang City, Guangdong Province, for an example and discuss the simulation accuracy by linear model WAsP and nonlinear model based on simulation software Fluent. First of all, contrast mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) about simulated wind speed under four kinds of wind conditions, which are simulated by four sets of wind data in WAsP, and then select the wind data with the smallest . Then, using WAsP and CFD method simulates wind field by the optimal wind data. Compare simulated wind speed and annual generation capacity. In this paper, the simulated wind speed in the simulation model CFD based on Fluent is closer to the measured wind speed. The MAPE of wind speed and annual generation capacity by CFD model is smaller than that by WAsP. Therefore, for the wind resource assessment in the complex terrain, the nonlinear model CFD based on Fluent will be qualified to response the relationship between wind resource and terrain, simulation accuracy, and has higher simulation accuracy than the linear model WAsP.

Abstract: The hydraulic poppet valve is an important basic component in Fluid drive and control technology, whose characteristic of the inner flow filed influences directly the valves performance. The main work is numerical calculation and simulation of flow field inside the cone valve in the hydraulic hammer. The first step is 3d modeling of cone valve. By using fluent software the study analyses and discusses the flow field of hydraulic cone valve including flow velocity field, pressure field and flow line distribution when the valve cores cone angle is 30°, analyses the cause of the vortexes position and strength, and finds out the main reason causing energy consumption.The results of the study show that by the optimal design of the cone valve seat, the density degree of the flow and the size of the vortex is reduced, the energy loss is reduced, negative pressure zone also changes, the noise is reduced and the energy utilization is improved.

Abstract: In this paper, the effect of RV (Reentry Vehicle) control vane on stability of a launch vehicle in the atmospheric outgoing phase will be analyzed. Despite of necessity for stability or control purposes in atmospheric re-entry phase, the RV vane has adverse effects on the stability of the whole launch vehicle in the phase of atmospheric outgoing. For analyzing this, a pilot launch vehicle is selected, the geometry is modeled in GAMBIT, flight data is extracted and using FLUENT, the launch vehicle conditions is simulated and the stability results is extracted for analyzing that shows the adverse effects of RV control vane on whole launch vehicle stability. Finally, some suggestions are offered.
