Missile Silo Launch Simulation by Fluent

Introduction The purpose of this tutorial is to provide guidelines to set up and run a dynamic mesh (DM) case using the layering scheme. The tutorial models a missile being launched from a silo. The motion of the missile is predicted using the six degree of freedom (6DOF) solver in FLUENT. In this tutorial, you will learn how to: Read a mesh file and perform a dynamic mesh calculation. Enable and configure the 6DOF solver. Compile a UDF that governs the missile motion. Set up moving zones. Set up a dynamic mesh event to control the mesh motion. Define...

Projectile Moving Inside a Barrel

Introduction The purpose of this tutorial is to illustrate how to set up and solve a problem using the following two features in FLUENT. Moving Deforming Mesh (MDM) using the layering algorithm. User-defined real gas law. The problem involves a projectile moving through a barrel and out of the muzzle. The flow is assumed to be inviscid. In this tutorial you will learn how to: Read a mesh file for performing an MDM calculation. Compile a UDF for the projectile motion and the Abel-Nobel real gas law. Set up the moving zones and hook the UDF in FLUENT. Run...

Solving a Gasoline Direct Injection Engine Simulation

A three dimensional single cylinder CFD simulation, of a 4-stroke spray guided Gasoline Direct Injection(GDI) Spark Ignition (SI) engine, is performed in this tutorial. Detailed boundary conditions are shown in Figure 4.1: Problem Schematic (p. 173). Engine simulation is started from Intake valve opening (IVO) and fuel is injected during the intake stroke. Homogeneous fuel air mixture is compressed and spark ignited 15° before compression Top Dead Center (TDC).[1] [1] Download Tutorial Coming Soon …. —————————————————— [1]...
