Design and Numerical Study of Serpentine Duct using Flow Controllers for Flow Characteristics Enhancement
Keywords:CATIA V5, ANSYS workbench software, FLUENT, ICEM CFD, SST k-ù
In the current work, computational study has been carrying out on the both baseline serpentine duct to know the flow behaviour and baseline with vortex generator to know the effect of vortex generators on the flow properties of the duct. A set of vortex generators are chosen for the study, by keeping all other parameters constant. Here in current work, for modelling the duct and vortex generator CATIA V5 is used; to discretizing the geometry ICEM CFD is used. For the analysis, the computational fluid dynamics tool FLUENT is used, SST k-ù model available in the FLUENT is used for the computations, and the results of current work will be validated with experimental results and shows that they are converged. Use of vortex generator in the current work proved extremely effective in enforcing the active flow control. Results obtained in this work are to study the pressure recovery at the engine face. The results ensure that the current work on the baseline model of serpentine inlet duct and model with vortex generator comparison is well established in case of pressure recovery and decrease in engine face distortion. After comparing the result of both baseline duct and duct with vortex generator we are expecting at least 25-35% of pressure recovery at the engine face. In the present study significant improvements characterized by an improved pressure recovery and decrease in distortion are observed over the baseline model of serpentine duct for vortex generator model. This reduction in pressure loss and distortion enhances the engine performance of thrust and also improves the overall performance of the engine.
