Recently there has been great interest by design engineers/ CFD analysts/ researchers worldwide to develop greater insights in the design and performance analysis of Turbiomachinery as they form an important component in major industrial applications. The blog aims to provide an overview of Turbomachinery and the essential CAD cleanup steps while meshing turbomachines for CFD analysis with the help of a software video demonstration on a commercial tool.

Combustion marks its existence since Stone Age period in form of mere fire and since then this phenomenon has played a major role in evolution as well as revolution of mankind. Right from its mediocre application of providing light and warmth to its sheer brilliant use for rocket propulsion for space expedition, combustion has done it all. The major applications of combustion being its use in boilers, gas turbines, automotive, rockets etc, the focus of this blog is to give an insight on combustion in internal combustion engines used for automobiles.

We all must have heard about the term ‘Cavitation’ sometime, more certainly if we have dealt with pumps or similar fluid application and probably might have also seen some effects of ‘Cavitation’. Cavitation is very common term in engineering domain especially if we are dealing with fluids. So let us have a detailed insight into this ‘Cavitation’ phenomenon through this blog.

The Falling Droplet

We all have seen the rain drops falling on roof tops or road or car roofs, or water droplets falling from tap. When we usually see these phenomenons occur around us they happen within no time. We don’t even notice them. But if we look closely there are very complex physics involved in them. What if we could really slow down time and observe closely these phenomenon occurring? Like this video from Discovery Channel which shows a slow motion capture of a droplet falling into a liquid surface.

After a thematic representation about the different modeling approached of multiphase flows in Multiphase Flow Modeling using CFD, we shall now have a look at the mathematical treatments involved behind all these models viz., Eulerian-Lagrangian, Eulerian-Eulerian and Volume of fluid.
