Though CFD has been widely used as a standard and well established engineering design analysis and optimization tool, the turbomachinery flow simulation still remains one of the challenges to handle. The typical reasons that make them so are the very complex nature of geometries and flow physics encountered in turbomachines. The following phenomena make turbomachinery flows extremely intricate and difficult to model for CFD simulation studies:

Hello Friends, its being a long time I haven't shared any new information on User Defined Functions (UDFs) available in ANSYS Fluent. Well that may make you think that UDFs are so tough to create, that this person took so long to write his second experience (blog) on UDF! Yeah, it’s funny, but let me tell that this is not the case with me, they (UDFs) are actually so interesting …and huge time & manual effort saver …and productive …and… I can go on and on if I start listing down all the plus points of using UDFs in Fluent. So, long story made short, I was fully enjoying past few months in learning and using this UDF & Scheme programming knowledge to Automate CFD studies in ANSYS Fluent.

As the performance of a catalytic converter is substantially affected by the flow distribution inside the substrate, a uniform flow distribution can increase its efficiency, lower the pressure drop and optimize engine performance. The flow distribution in a catalytic converter assembly is governed by the geometry configurations of inlet and outlet cone section, the substrate and exhaust gas compositions and therefore a better design of the catalytic converter is very important. In this blog we shall have insights of CFD modeling approach of flow inside a catalytic converter with the help a flow visualization.

In the earlier blog Combustion in Internal Combustion (IC) Engines we had an introduction about the combustion phenomena taking place in an automotive IC engine. The present article is an effort in continuation to have insights on CFD of combustion in IC engines. As we know the key factors that govern the decision making of any automobile buyer in general are, its mileage, performance, maintenance and tentative life apart from passenger comfort and aesthetics. An engine forms the heart of an automobile that can dictate its performance and life and is solely governed by the combustion pattern inside. The detail analysis of combustion in any engine is one of the most important key factors to confirm its efficient design wherein computational fluid dynamics (CFD) proves to be an efficient tool.
