Computational Fluid Dynamics-CFD is the numerical study of the behavior of systems involving fluid flow, heat transfer and other related physical processes. Computational Structural Dynamics involves the study of the dynamic behavior of structures. A wide range of physical phenomena involves both
Gradient-based aerodynamic shape optimization, based on Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis of the flow, is a method that can automatically improve designs of aircraft components. The prospect is to reduce a cost function that reflects aerodynamic performances.When the shape is described by a
The events of September 11th showed the combined effects of fire and structural loading on a high-rise building can be disastrous. Understanding the mechanism of structural damage caused by fire will help engineers design safer infrastructures by providing adequate resistance to failure.
There are countless numbers of lubricated components everywhere in life and an improvement in efficiency would lead to great cost efficiency improvements in many applications. This makes it an area which is subject to a great deal of research. Here, an approach
The collection and characterization of chemical and biological aerosols is crucial to numerous aspects of particle research for instance toxicological studies, pollutant sampling, and biohazard evaluation. This study presents the simulation of a low cutpoint, large volume aerosol testing system referred to as virtual impactor.
The passive security systems protect the passengers when the car has an important accident. These systems are based in a good and strength car structure to not deform the passenger cabin. In Gestamp Hardtech are producing pieces with an important strength without
This master thesis contains an investigation of the Portable Extensible Toolkit for Scientific calculations(PETSc)and a time stepping implicit solver for solving computational fluid dynamics problems. The work discusses the two different approaches to achieve a time stepping solver with PETSc and what
