CTR Tea : Friday, December 2, 2022 - 4:15pm : Speaker(s): Dr. Stefan P. Domino, Computational Thermal & Fluid Mechanics Department, Sandia National Laboratory; Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering, Stanford
Abtract:

In this presentation, an unstructured, low-Mach, balanced-force, volume of fluid numerical methodology is overviewed whose prime objective is to target the modeling of wave-based renewable energy devices using high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics approaches. A control volume finite element numerical discretization, which includes novel residual-based stabilization for the volume of fluid equation, is established. Although WEC mod/sim requirements lack typical multiphysics complexities, other technical challenges exist, such as ensuring non-diffusive fluid transport in the presence of... Read More

The risk of airborne viral contagion in indoor spaces is a multidisciplinary problem involving a wide range of parameters. From a fluid mechanics perspective, the problem of infectivity can be divided into an ejection-scale problem and a room-scale problem. The ejection-scale problem aims to answer the question of what range of droplet sizes remain airborne as a result of expiration activities of a sick person. A theoretical framework was developed to answer this question and validated with high-fidelity simulations. It is shown that the risk of infection is heightened when the droplet evap... Read More

Tutorial : Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm : Speaker(s): Luca Brandt
Abtract:

In this tutorial, we offer an overview on the achievements and challenges of interface-resolved simulations of multiphase turbulent flows. The focus will therefore be on micro- and meso-scale simulations, needed to provide fundamental physical insights as well as quantitative information to large-scale models, e.g. LES and two-fluid Continuum models. We will first consider the case of rigid particles, which has probably seen the most significant achievements over the last decade, and where we believe resolved numerical simulations are a well-established tool. Secondly, we will consider two-... Read More

Tutorial : Friday, July 29, 2022 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm : Speaker(s): Beverley McKeon
Abtract:

The resolvent framework provides a simple, but rigorous, approach by which to analyze linear amplification in turbulent flows and frame nonlinear turbulent closures. Analysis of the resolvent identifies the linear amplification associated with harmonic forcing of the linearized Navier-Stokes equations, which give rise to a non-normal operator.  By associating this forcing with the quadratic nonlinearity, the full turbulence field can be expressed as a linear combination of weighted, nonlinearly interacting modes. After a brief review of the basic approach, recent developments and the connec... Read More

In this tutorial, we offer an overview of different machine learning (ML) methodologies for turbulence modeling. The main focus is on RANS and LES but other reduced-order models are also discussed. First, the distinction between models and methods is highlighted. The different ML approaches are introduced according to three classifications: i) the level of modeling form of closure terms, ii) machine learning methodology and, iii) the neural network architecture. A selected number of works are used to illustrate the ML approaches. Finally, we address the question: What can we do with machine... Read More
