Download CFD for Wind and Tidal Offshore Turbines by Esteban Ferrer, Adeline Montlaur PDF

By Esteban Ferrer, Adeline Montlaur

The ebook encompasses novel CFD options to compute offshore wind and tidal applications.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) innovations are considered as the most layout software to discover the recent engineering demanding situations provided by means of offshore wind and tidal generators for strength iteration. the trouble and prices of venture experimental exams in offshore environments have elevated the curiosity within the box of CFD that's used to layout acceptable generators and blades, comprehend fluid stream actual phenomena linked to offshore environments, expect energy creation or characterise offshore environments, among different issues.

In: Proceedings of the ASME Turbo Expo 2014, Dusseldorf Chapter 5 Large-Eddy Simulation of a Vertical Axis Tidal Turbine Using an Immersed Boundary Method Pablo Ouro Barba, Thorsten Stoesser, and Richard McSherry Abstract Vertical Axis Tidal Turbines (VATTs) are an innovative way of harnessing renewable energy from tidal streams. Herein a novel numerical approach using a refined Large Eddy Simulation (LES) code to simulate the performance of a VATT is presented. The turbine blades are modelled with Lagrangian markers using the Immersed Boundary Method which offers several advantages especially concerning computational effort.

Similar sized turbines using NACA 0015 and NACA 0018 blade profiles exhibit similar start-up characteristics [18], suggesting that the use of the model is valid in spite of the different blade profiles used. In any case the start-up acceleration here has a much longer time-scale than the blade cycling and hence the exact acceleration is probably unimportant. The experiment also used a three-bladed turbine, which would obviously be expected to experience more blade–wake interactions than the one-bladed DG code turbine.

The turbine is formed with a single NACA 0015 airfoil with a chord c D 1 located at a radial distance R D 2c from the center of rotation. The incompressible Navier–Stokes equations are solved using a higher-order method based on MLS with a collocated grid arrangement [17].
