## Study of Cavitation in Winkl – Hoffer Nozzle

Introduction: In an engine, fuel flow have a complex path as it flows from the tank to the combustion chamber. When the fuel flows through chambers where the area suddenly changes, it results in increased or decreased pressure. In this project, we will be focusing on how fuel flow induces Read more…

## Universities for Computational Mechanics in UK

Introduction: Since the invention of computers in the 20th century, humans have become more and more dependent on these systems to the extent where every field is now integrated with computing systems. And when it comes to mechanical engineering, computers have a huge impact here as well. Scientists are now Read more…

## Transient Simulation of Flow Over A Cylinder

Introduction: External flow past around a circular cylinder has been extensively studied by the fluid community because of their practical applications. The flow of fluids over heat exchanger tubes and civil structures are such examples. The flow past a circular cylinder experiences a boundary layer separation and very strong flow Read more…

## Flow over Ahmed Body Using Opensource Software

Introduction: In 1984, S.R. Ahmed created a generic car body that has a simple geometric shape called the Ahmed body. Since then, it has been a benchmark for aerodynamic simulations. When air flows around the Ahmed body, it displays the characteristic features that are displayed when flow happens over various Read more…

## Prandtl Meyer Shock Problem

Objective: To visualize Prandtl Meyer expansion fan over an expansion corner using converge and understand the effect of SGS parameter on the shock location. Background: When a supersonic wave flows around a convex corner, a centered expansion occurs at the point of turn. This expansion consists of an infinite number Read more…

## Erosion in Cyclone Separator

Introduction: A cyclone separator is primarily an air pollution control device and is used to separate pollutant or any matter particles from air as it passes through it. Since the walls of the cyclone separator are continuously bombarded by particles, there will be erosion happening on the surface of the Read more…

## Shock tube simulation

Introduction: Imagine a calm pool of water. Now what do you think will happen when a stone is thrown in the centre of it? It will generate concentric ripples from the point of impact, right? This is what a shock wave looks like. In this project, we are going to Read more…

## Transient simulation of flow over a throttle body

Introduction: In this project, we are going to simulate flow in an elbow joint that contains a throttle valve. This mechanism is widely used in carburettors and in the piping system in ships. In this project, we will study the flow patterns in the fluid due to the movement of Read more…

## Simulating flow through backward facing step

Introduction: Studying flow behavior through various structures is an important subject of mechanical engineering. When fluids flow through different geometries, they exhibit different velocity, pressure and flow properties. We have decided to simulate flow through a backward facing step to study the flow of fluids through geometries that have sudden-changing Read more…

## Analysis of drag for side mirrors of an automobile

Introduction: When the older cars were designed first, the aerodynamic factors weren’t taken much into consideration. The frontal panel was primarily designed to hold the engine. However, as time passed by, engineers realized that the design of the car was impacting the airflow around the car. the older models were Read more…
