Choi, J. | Unsteady aerodynamics and optimal control of an airfoil at low Reynolds number | 2016 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: As opposed to conventional air vehicles that have fixed wings, small birds and insects are known to flap their wings at higher angles of attack. The vortex produced at the tip of the wing, known as the leading-edge vortex (LEV), plays an important role to enhance lift during its flight. In this thesis, we analyze the influence of these vortices on aerodynamic forces that could be beneficial to micro-air vehicle performance and efficiency. The flow structures associated with simple harmonic motions of an airfoil are first investigated. The characteristics of the time-averaged and fluctuating forces are explained by analyzing vortical flow features, such as vortex lock-in, leading-edge vortex synchronization, and vortex formation time. Specific frequency regions where the wake instability locks in to the unsteady motion of the airfoil are identified, and these lead to significant changes in the mean forces. A detailed study of the flow structures associated with the LEV acting either in- or out-of-phase with the quasi-steady component of the forces is performed to quantify the amplification and attenuation behavior of the fluctuating forces. An inherent time scale of the LEV associated with its formation and detachment (LEV formation time) is shown to control the time-averaged forces. With these results, several optimal flow control problems are formulated. Adjoint-based optimal control is applied to an airfoil moving at a constant velocity and also to a reciprocating airfoil with no forward velocity. In both cases, we maximize lift by controlling the pitch rate of the airfoil. For the former case, the static map of lift at various angles of attack is additionally examined to find the static angle that provides maximum lift and also to confirm whether the optimizations perform according to the static map. For the latter case, we obtain a solution of the optimized motion of the flapping airfoil which resembles that of a hovering insect. |

Liska, S. | Fast Lattice Green's Function Methods for Viscous Incompressible Flows on Unbounded Domains | 2016 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: In this thesis, a collection of novel numerical techniques culminating in a fast, parallel method for the direct numerical simulation of incompressible viscous flows around surfaces immersed in unbounded fluid domains is presented. At the core of all these techniques is the use of the fundamental solutions, or lattice Green?s functions, of discrete operators to solve inhomogeneous elliptic difference equations arising in the discretization of the three-dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on unbounded regular grids. In addition to automatically enforcing the natural free-space boundary conditions, these new lattice Green?s function techniques facilitate the implementation of robust staggered-Cartesian-grid flow solvers with efficient nodal distributions and fast multipole methods. The provable conservation and stability properties of the appropriately combined discretization and solution techniques ensure robust numerical solutions. Numerical experiments on thin vortex rings, low-aspect-ratio flat plates, and spheres are used verify the accuracy, physical fidelity, and computational efficiency of the present formulations. |

Liska, S. and Colonius, T. | A fast lattice Green's function method for solving viscous incompressible flows on unbounded domains | 2016 | Journal of Computational Physics Vol. 316, pp. 360-384 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A computationally efficient method for solving three-dimensional,viscous, incompressible flows on unbounded domains is presented. The method formally discretizes the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on an unbounded staggered Cartesian grid. Operations are limited to a finite computational domain through a lattice Green's function technique. This technique obtains solutions to inhomogeneous difference equations through the discrete convolution of source terms with the fundamental solutions of the discrete-operators. The differential algebraic equations describing the temporal evolution of the discrete momentum equation and incompressibility constraint are numerically solved by combining an integrating factor technique for the viscous term and a half-explicit Runge-Kutta scheme for the convective term. A projection method that exploits the mimetic and commutativity properties of the discrete operators is used to efficiently solve the system of equations that arises in each stage of the time integration scheme. Linear complexity, fast computation rates, and parallel scalability are achieved using recently developed fast multipole methods for difference equations. The accuracy and physical fidelity of solutions are verified through numerical simulations of vortex rings. (C) 2016 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. |

Meng, J. | Numerical Simulations of Droplet Aerobreakup | 2016 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: The work presented in this thesis aims to bridge an existing gap in the state of droplet aerobreakup knowledge associated with the fundamental flow physics that govern the experimentally observable droplet morphologies. Using direct numerical simulations of the aerobreakup of water cylinders and droplets in the flow behind shock waves in air, we investigate the behavior of the surrounding gas flow to gain insight into the droplet?s deformation and evolution in the stripping breakup regime. The compressible multicomponent Navier-Stokes equations are solved using the Multicomponent Flow Code -- a high-order accurate structured finite-volume flow solver with shock- and interface-capturing. Following qualitative descriptions of the aerobreakup process, comparisons are made with available experimental data. In 2D, accurate measurements of the cylinder?s center-of-mass acceleration across a range of incident shock Mach numbers allow characterization of the unsteady drag coefficient. Additionally, mass loss measurements from viscous simulations refute a well-known boundary layer stripping theory. The results of a 3D nonaxisymmetric aerobreakup simulation are presented with an emphasis on describing the intricate flow phenomena observable in the wake region. Subsequent analyses of the surface instabilities and a Fourier decomposition of the flow field reveal asymmetrical azimuthal modulations and broadband instability growth that result in the devolution of the wake region into chaotic flow. |

Sinha, A., Guðmundsson, K., Xia, H. and Colonius, T. | Parabolized stability analysis of jets from serrated nozzles | 2016 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 789, pp. 36-63 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We study the viscous spatial linear stability characteristics of thetime-averaged flow in turbulent subsonic jets issuing from serrated (chevroned) nozzles, and compare them to analogous round jet results. Linear parabolized stability equations (PSE) are used in the calculations to account for the non-parallel base flow. By exploiting the symmetries of the mean flow due to the regular arrangement of serrations, we obtain a series of coupled two-dimensional PSE problems from the original three-dimensional problem. This reduces the solution cost and manifests the symmetries of the stability modes. In the parallel-flow linear stability theory (LST) calculations that are performed near the nozzle to initiate the PSE, we find that the serrated nozzle reduces the growth rates of the most unstable eigenmodes of the jet, but their phase speeds are approximately similar. We obtain encouraging validation of our linear PSE instability wave results vis-a-vis near-field hydrodynamic pressure data acquired on a phased microphone array in experiments, after filtering the latter with proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) to extract the energetically dominant coherent part. Additionally, a large-eddy simulation database of the same serrated jet is investigated, and its POD-filtered pressure field is found to compare favourably with the corresponding PSE solution within the jet plume. We conclude that the coherent hydrodynamic pressure fluctuations of jets from both round and serrated nozzles are reasonably consistent with the linear instability modes of the turbulent mean flow. |

Towne, A. | Advancements in jet turbulence and noise modeling: accurate one-way solutions and empirical evaluation of the nonlinear forcing of wavepackets | 2016 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Jet noise reduction is an important goal within both commercial and military aviation. Although large-scale numerical simulations are now able to simultaneously compute turbulent jets and their radiated sound, lost-cost, physically-motivated models are needed to guide noise-reduction efforts. A particularly promising modeling approach centers around certain large-scale coherent structures, called wavepackets, that are observed in jets and their radiated sound. The typical approach to modeling wavepackets is to approximate them as linear modal solutions of the Euler or Navier-Stokes equations linearized about the long-time mean of the turbulent flow field. The near-field wavepackets obtained from these models show compelling agreement with those educed from experimental and simulation data for both subsonic and supersonic jets, but the acoustic radiation is severely under-predicted in the subsonic case. This thesis contributes to two aspects of these models. First, two new solution methods are developed that can be used to efficiently compute wavepackets and their acoustic radiation, reducing the computational cost of the model by more than an order of magnitude. The new techniques are spatial integration methods and constitute a well-posed, convergent alternative to the frequently used parabolized stability equations. Using concepts related to well-posed boundary conditions, the methods are formulated for general hyperbolic equations and thus have potential applications in many fields of physics and engineering. Second, the nonlinear and stochastic forcing of wavepackets is investigated with the goal of identifying and characterizing the missing dynamics responsible for the under-prediction of acoustic radiation by linear wavepacket models for subsonic jets. Specifically, we use ensembles of large-eddy-simulation flow and force data along with two data decomposition techniques to educe the actual nonlinear forcing experienced by wavepackets in a Mach 0.9 turbulent jet. Modes with high energy are extracted using proper orthogonal decomposition, while high gain modes are identified using a novel technique called empirical resolvent-mode decomposition. In contrast to the flow and acoustic fields, the forcing field is characterized by a lack of energetic coherent structures. Furthermore, the structures that do exist are largely uncorrelated with the acoustic field. Instead, the forces that most efficiently excite an acoustic response appear to take the form of random turbulent fluctuations, implying that direct feedback from nonlinear interactions amongst wavepackets is not an essential noise source mechanism. This suggests that the essential ingredients of sound generation in high Reynolds number jets are contained within the linearized Navier-Stokes operator rather than in the nonlinear forcing terms, a conclusion that has important implications for jet noise modeling. |

Tsai, H.-C. | Numerical Investigation of Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines at Low Reynolds Number | 2016 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: This thesis is aimed at numerically investigating the aerodynamics and the starting of a vertical-axis wind turbine at low Reynolds number using the immersed boundary method. The influence of the Coriolis effect on dynamic stall is isolated by comparing the rotating airfoil to one undergoing an equivalent planar motion that is composed of surging and pitching motions that produce an equivalent speed and angle of attack variation over a cycle. At lower tip-speed ratios, the Coriolis force leads to the capture of a vortex pair which results in a significant decrease in lift when the angle of attack of a rotating airfoil begins to decrease in the upwind half cycle. In the absence of the wake-capturing, the equivalent planar motion is a good approximation to a rotating blade in a vertical-axis wind turbine.Analysis on the starting torque shows that when the turbine solidity is lower than about 0.5, the starting torque distribution can be well-modeled by considering a single blade at different orientations, and starting torque distributions for multi-bladed turbines can be constructed by linearly combining the torques at the respective positions of the blades. Using this model, optimal configurations to start a multi-bladed low-solidity vertical-axis wind turbine is proposed. A preliminary study is made to determine an optimal blade pitch for a single-bladed motor-driven turbine using optimal control theory. When the input power is minimized directly, the solution seems to converge to only a local minimum due to a lower input power reduction than that obtained by maximizing the mean tangential force. After a transient, both controls converge to time-invariant pitch angles of about the same magnitude but with opposite signs. The wake-capturing phenomenon observed in the uncontrolled case necessitates large input power. Under active control, the disappearance of wake-capturing and attendant changes in the flow field collectively result in a reduction of required input power. |

Tsai, H.-C. and Colonius, T. | Coriolis Effect on Dynamic Stall in a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine | 2016 | AIAA Journal Vol. 54(1), pp. 216-226 |
article | DOI |

Abstract: The immersed boundary method is used to simulate the flow around atwo-dimensional cross section of a rotating NACA 0018 airfoil in order to investigate the dynamic stall occurring on a vertical axis wind turbine. The influence of dynamic stall on the force is characterized as a function of tip-speed ratio and Rossby number. The influence of the Coriolis effect is isolated by comparing the rotating airfoil to one undergoing an equivalent planar motion that is composed of surging and pitching motions that produce an equivalent speed and angle-of-attack variation over the cycle. Planar motions consisting of sinusoidally varying pitch and surge are also examined. At lower tip-speed ratios, the Coriolis force leads to the capture of a vortex pair when the angle of attack of a rotating airfoil begins to decrease in the upwind half cycle. This wake-capturing phenomenon leads to a significant decrease in lift during the downstroke phase. The appearance of this feature depends subtly on the tip-speed ratio. On the one hand, it is strengthened due to the intensifying Coriolis force, but on the other hand, it is attenuated because of the comitant decrease in angle of attack. While the present results are restricted to two-dimensional flow at low Reynolds numbers, they compare favorably with experimental observations at much higher Reynolds numbers. Moreover, the wake-capturing is observed only when the combination of surging, pitching, and Coriolis force is present. |

Choi, J., Colonius, T. and Williams, D.R. | Surging and plunging oscillations of an airfoil at low Reynolds number | 2015 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 763, pp. 237-253 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We investigate the forces and unsteady flow structures associated with harmonic oscillations of an airfoil in the streamwise (surging) and transverse (plunging) directions in two-dimensional simulations at low Reynolds number. For the surging case, we show that there are specific frequencies where the wake instability synchronizes with the unsteady motion of the airfoil, leading to significant changes in the mean forces. Resonant behaviour of the time-averaged forces is observed near the vortex shedding frequency and its subharmonic; the behaviour is reminiscent of the dynamics of the generic nonlinear oscillator known as the Arnol'd tongue or the resonance horn. Below the wake instability frequency, there are two regimes where the fluctuating forces are amplified and attenuated, respectively. A detailed study of the flow structures associated with leading-edge vortex (LEV) growth and detachment are used to relate this behaviour with the LEV acting either in phase with the quasi-steady component of the forces for the amplification case, or out of phase for the attenuation case. Comparisons with wind tunnel measurements show that phenomenologically similar dynamics occur at higher Reynolds number. Finally, we show that qualitatively similar phenomena occur during both surging and plunging. |

Coralic, V. | Simulation of shock-induced bubble collapse with application to vascular injury in shockwave lithotripsy | 2015 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Shockwave lithotripsy is a noninvasive medical procedure wherein shockwaves are repeatedly focused at the location of kidney stones in order to pulverize them. Stone comminution is thought to be the product of two mechanisms: the propagation of stress waves within the stone and cavitation erosion. However, the latter mechanism has also been implicated in vascular injury. In the present work, shock-induced bubble collapse is studied in order to understand the role that it might play in inducing vascular injury. A high-order accurate, shock- and interface-capturing numerical scheme is developed to simulate the three-dimensional collapse of the bubble in both the free-field and inside a vessel phantom. The primary contributions of the numerical study are the characterization of the shock-bubble and shock-bubble-vessel interactions across a large parameter space that includes clinical shockwave lithotripsy pressure amplitudes, problem geometry and tissue viscoelasticity, and the subsequent correlation of these interactions to vascular injury. Specifically, measurements of the vessel wall pressures and displacements, as well as the finite strains in the fluid surrounding the bubble, are utilized with available experiments in tissue to evaluate damage potential. Estimates are made of the smallest injurious bubbles in the microvasculature during both the collapse and jetting phases of the bubble's life cycle. The present results suggest that bubbles larger than 1 μ m in diameter could rupture blood vessels under clinical SWL conditions. |

Flinois, T.L.B. and Colonius, T. | Optimal control of circular cylinder wakes using long control horizons | 2015 | Physics of Fluids Vol. 27(8) |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The classical problem of suppressing vortex shedding in the wake of acircular cylinder by using body rotation is revisited in an adjoint-based optimal control framework. The cylinder's unsteady and fully unconstrained rotation rate is optimized at Reynolds numbers between 75 and 200 and over horizons that are longer than in previous studies, where they are typically of the order of a vortex shedding period or shorter. In the best configuration, the drag is reduced by 19 the vortex shedding is effectively suppressed, and this low drag state is maintained with minimal cylinder rotation after transients. Unlike open-loop control, the optimal control is shown to maintain a specific phase relationship between the actuation and the shedding in order to stabilize the wake. A comparison is also given between the performance of optimizations for different Reynolds numbers, cost functions, and horizon lengths. It is shown that the long horizons used are necessary in order to stabilize the vortex shedding efficiently. (C) 2015 AIP Publishing LLC. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We consider piezoelectric flow energy harvesting in an internal flowenvironment with the ultimate goal powering systems such as sensors in deep oil well applications. Fluid motion is coupled to structural vibration via a cantilever beam placed in a converging-diverging flow channel. Two designs were considered for the electromechanical coupling: first; the cantilever itself is a piezoelectric bimorph; second; the cantilever is mounted on a pair of flextensional actuators. We experimentally investigated varying the geometry of the flow passage and the flow rate. Experimental results revealed that the power generated from both designs was similar; producing as much as 20 mW at a flow rate of 20 L/min. The bimorph designs were prone to failure at the extremes of flow rates tested. Finite element analysis (FEA) showed fatigue failure was imminent due to stress concentrations near the bimorph's clamped region; and that robustness could be improved with a stepped-joint mounting design. A similar FEA model showed the flextensional-based harvester had a resonant frequency of around 375 Hz and an electromechanical coupling of 0.23 between the cantilever and flextensional actuators in a vacuum. These values; along with the power levels demonstrated; are significant steps toward building a system design that can eventually deliver power in the Watts range to devices down within a well. |

Meng, J.C. and Colonius, T. | Numerical simulations of the early stages of high-speed droplet breakup | 2015 | Shock Waves Vol. 25(4), pp. 399-414 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Experiments reported in the literature are reproduced using numerical simulations to investigate the early stages of the breakup of water cylinders in the flow behind normal shocks. Qualitative features of breakup observed in the numerical results, such as the initial streamwise flattening of the cylinder and the formation of tips at its periphery, support previous experimental observations of stripping breakup. Additionally, the presence of a transitory recirculation region at the cylinder's equator and a persistent upstream jet in the wake is noted and discussed. Within the uncertainties inherent to the different methods used to extract measurements from experimental and numerical results, comparisons with experimental data of various cylinder deformation metrics show good agreement. To study the effects of the transition between subsonic and supersonic post-shock flow, we extend the range of incident shock Mach numbers beyond those investigated by the experiments. Supersonic post-shock flow velocities are not observed to significantly alter the cylinder's behavior, i.e., we are able to effectively collapse the drift, acceleration, and drag curves for all simulated shock Mach numbers. Using a new method that minimizes noise errors, the cylinder's acceleration is calculated; acceleration curves for all shock Mach numbers are subsequently collapsed by scaling with the pressure ratio across the incident shock. Furthermore, we find that accounting for the cylinder's deformed diameter in the calculation of its unsteady drag coefficient allows the drag coefficient to be approximated as a constant over the initial breakup period. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Locally-parallel linear stability theory (LST) of jet velocity profiles is revisited to study the evolution of the wavepackets and the manner in which the parabolized stability equations (PSE) approach models them. An adjoint-based eigenmode decomposition technique is used to project cross-sectional velocity profiles measured using time-resolved particle image velocimetry (PIV) on the different families of eigenmodes present in the LST eigenspectrum. Attention is focused on the evolution of the Kelvin-Helmholtz (K-H) eigenmode and the projection of experimental fluctuations on it, since in subsonic jets the inflectional K H instability is the only possible mechanism for linear amplification of the large-scale fluctuations, and governs the wavepacket evolution. Comparisons of the fluctuations extracted by projection onto K-H eigenmode with PSE solutions and Ply measurements are made. We show that the jet can be divided into three main regions, classified with respect to the LST eigenspectrum. Near the jet exit, there is significant amplification of the K-H mode; the PSE solution is shown to comprise almost exclusively the K-H mode, and the agreement with experiments shows that the evolution of this mode dominates the near-nozzle fluctuations. For downstream positions, the Kelvin-Helmholtz mode becomes stable and eventually merges with other branches of the eigenspectrum. The comparison between PSE, experiment and the projection onto the K-H mode for downstream positions suggests that the mechanism of saturation and decay of wavepackets is related to a combination of several marginally stable modes, which is reasonably well modeled by linear PSE, but cannot be obtained in the usual application of locally-parallel stability dealing exclusively with the K-H mode. In addition, the projection of empirical data on the K-H eigenmode at a near-nozzle cross-section is shown to be a well-founded method for the determination of the amplitudes of the linear wavepacket models.

Abstract: Power generation schemes that could be used downhole in an oil well to produce about 1 Watt average power with long-life (decades) are actively being developed. A variety of proposed energy harvesting schemes could be used to extract energy from this environment but each of these has their own limitations that limit their practical use. Since vibrating piezoelectric structures are solid state and can be driven below their fatigue limit, harvesters based on these structures are capable of operating for very long lifetimes (decades); thereby, possibly overcoming a principle limitation of existing technology based on rotating turbo-machinery. An initial survey [1] identified that spline nozzle configurations can be used to excite a vibrating piezoelectric structure in such a way as to convert the abundant flow energy into useful amounts of electrical power. This paper presents current flow energy harvesting designs and experimental results of specific spline nozzle/ bimorph design configurations which have generated suitable power per nozzle at or above well production analogous flow rates. Theoretical models for non-dimensional analysis and constitutive electromechanical model are also presented in this paper to optimize the flow harvesting system. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: In this paper, we develop and demonstrate a method for constructingwell-posed one-way approximations of linear hyperbolic systems. We use a semi-discrete approach that allows the method to be applied to a wider class of problems than existing methods based on analytical factorization of idealized dispersion relations. After establishing the existence of an exact one-way equation for systems whose coefficients do not vary along the axis of integration, efficient approximations of the one-way operator are constructed by generalizing techniques previously used to create nonreflecting boundary conditions. When physically justified, the method can be applied to systems with slowly varying coefficients in the direction of integration. To demonstrate the accuracy and computational efficiency of the approach, the method is applied to model problems in acoustics and fluid dynamics via the linearized Euler equations; in particular we consider the scattering of sound waves from a vortex and the evolution of hydrodynamic wavepackets in a spatially evolving jet. The latter problem shows the potential of the method to offer a systematic, convergent alternative to ad hoc regularizations such as the parabolized stability equations. (C) 2015 Elsevier Inc.

Coralic, V. and Colonius, T. | Finite-volume WENO scheme for viscous compressible multicomponent flows | 2014 | Journal of Computational Physics Vol. 274, pp. 95-121 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We develop a shock- and interface-capturing numerical method that is suitable for the simulation of multicomponent flows governed by the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. The numerical method is high-order accurate in smooth regions of the flow, discretely conserves the mass of each component, as well as the total momentum and energy, and is oscillation-free, i.e. it does not introduce spurious oscillations at the locations of shockwaves and/or material interfaces. The method is of Godunov-type and utilizes a fifth-order, finite-volume, weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme for the spatial reconstruction and a Harten-Lax-van Leer contact (HLLC) approximate Riemann solver to upwind the fluxes. A third-order total variation diminishing (TVD) Runge-Kutta (RK) algorithm is employed to march the solution in time. The derivation is generalized to three dimensions and nonuniform Cartesian grids. A two-point, fourth-order, Gaussian quadrature rule is utilized to build the spatial averages of the reconstructed variables inside the cells, as well as at cell boundaries. The algorithm is therefore fourth-order accurate in space and third-order accurate in time in smooth regions of the flow. We corroborate the properties of our numerical method by considering several challenging one-, two- and three-dimensional test cases, the most complex of which is the asymmetric collapse of an air bubble submerged in a cylindrical water cavity that is embedded in 10% gelatin.

Abstract: We study the influence of bubble-bubble interactions on the propagation of linear acoustic waves in bubbly liquids. Using the full model proposed by Fuster and Colonius [J. Fluid Mech. 688, 253 ( 2011)], numerical simulations reveal that direct bubble-bubble interactions have an appreciable effect for frequencies above the natural resonance frequency of the average size bubble. Based on the new results, a modification of the classical wave propagation theory is proposed. The results obtained are in good agreement with previously reported experimental data where the classical linear theory systematically overpredicts the effective attenuation and phase velocity. |

Liska, S. and Colonius, T. | A parallel fast multipole method for elliptic difference equations | 2014 | Journal of Computational Physics Vol. 278, pp. 76-91 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A new fast multipole formulation for solving elliptic difference equations on unbounded domains and its parallel implementation are presented. These difference equations can arise directly in the description of physical systems, e.g. crystal structures, or indirectly through the discretization of PDEs. In the analog to solving continuous inhomogeneous differential equations using Green's functions, the proposed method uses the fundamental solution of the discrete operator on an infinite grid, or lattice Green's function. Fast solutions O(N) are achieved by using a kernel-independent interpolation-based fast multipole method. Unlike other fast multipole algorithms, our approach exploits the regularity of the underlying Cartesian grid and the efficiency of FFTs to reduce the computation time. Our parallel implementation allows communications and computations to be overlapped and requires minimal global synchronization. The accuracy, efficiency, and parallel performance of the method are demonstrated through numerical experiments on the discrete 3D Poisson equation. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. |

Abstract: There is a need for a long-life power generation scheme that could be used downhole in an oil well to produce 1 Watt average power. There are a variety of existing or proposed energy harvesting schemes that could be used in this environment but each of these has its own limitations. The vibrating piezoelectric structure is in principle capable of operating for very long lifetimes (decades) thereby possibly overcoming a principle limitation of existing technology based on rotating turbo-machinery. In order to determine the feasibility of using piezoelectrics to produce suitable flow energy harvesting, we surveyed experimentally a variety of nozzle configurations that could be used to excite a vibrating piezoelectric structure in such a way as to enable conversion of flow energy into useful amounts of electrical power. These included reed structures, spring mass-structures, drag and lift bluff bodies and a variety of nozzles with varying flow profiles. Although not an exhaustive survey we identified a spline nozzle/piezoelectric bimorph system that experimentally produced up to 3.4 mW per bimorph. This paper will discuss these results and present our initial analyses of the device using dimensional analysis and constitutive electromechanical modeling. The analysis suggests that an order-of-magnitude improvement in power generation from the current design is possible. |

Sinha, A., Rodríguez, D., Brès, G.A. and Colonius, T. | Wavepacket models for supersonic jet noise | 2014 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 742, pp. 71-95 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Guðmundsson and Colonius (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 689, 2011, pp. 97-128) have recently shown that the average evolution of low-frequency, low-azimuthal modal large-scale structures in the near field of subsonic jets are remarkably well predicted as linear instability waves of the turbulent mean flow using parabolized stability equations. In this work, we extend this modelling technique to an isothermal and a moderately heated Mach 1.5 jet for which the mean flow fields are obtained from a high-fidelity large-eddy simulation database. The latter affords a rigourous and extensive validation of the model, which had only been pursued earlier with more limited experimental data. A filter based on proper orthogonal decomposition is applied to the data to extract the most energetic coherent components. These components display a distinct wavepacket character, and agree fairly well with the parabolized stability equations model predictions in terms of near-field pressure and flow velocity. We next apply a Kirchhoff surface acoustic propagation technique to the near-field pressure model and obtain an encouraging match for far-field noise levels in the peak aft direction. The results suggest that linear wavepackets in the turbulence are responsible for the loudest portion of the supersonic jet acoustic field. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Numerical simulations of the linear and nonlinear two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations, and linear stability theory are used to parametrically investigate hypersonic boundary layers over ultrasonic absorptive coatings. The porous coatings consist of a uniform array of rectangular pores (slots) with a range of porosities and pore aspect ratios. For the numerical simulations, temporally (rather than spatially) evolving boundary layers are considered and we provide evidence that this approximation is appropriate for slowly growing second-mode instabilities. We consider coatings operating in the typical regime where the pores are relatively deep and acoustic waves and second-mode instabilities are attenuated by viscous effects inside the pores, as well as regimes with phase cancellation or reinforcement associated with reflection of acoustic waves from the bottom of the pores. These conditions are defined as attenuative and cancellation/reinforcement regimes, respectively. The focus of the present study is on the cases which have not been systematically studied in the past, namely the reinforcement regime (which represents a worst-case scenario, i.e. minimal second-mode damping) and the cancellation regime (which corresponds to the configuration with the most potential improvement). For all but one of the cases considered, the linear simulations show good agreement with the results of linear instability theory that employs an approximate porous-wall boundary condition, and confirm that the porous coating stabilizing performance is directly related to their acoustic scattering performance. A particular case with relatively shallow pores and very high porosity showed the existence of a shorter-wavelength instability that was not initially predicted by theory. Our analysis shows that this new mode is associated with acoustic resonances in the pores and can be more unstable than the second mode. Modifications to the theoretical model are suggested to account for the new mode and to provide estimates of the porous coating parameters that avoid this detrimental instability. Finally, nonlinear simulations confirm the conclusions of the linear analysis; in particular, we did not observe any tripping of the boundary layer by small-scale disturbances associated with individual pores. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We study the velocity fields of unforced, high Reynolds number, subsonic jets, issuing from round nozzles with turbulent boundary layers. The objective of the study is to educe wavepackets in such flows and to explore their relationship with the radiated sound. The velocity field is measured using a hot-wire anemometer and a stereoscopic, time-resolved PIV system. The field can be decomposed into frequency and azimuthal Fourier modes. The low-angle sound radiation is measured synchronously with a microphone ring array. Consistent with previous observations, the azimuthal wavenumber spectra of the velocity and acoustic pressure fields are distinct. The velocity spectrum of the initial mixing layer exhibits a peak at azimuthal wavenumbers m ranging from 4 to 11, and the peak is found to scale with the local momentum thickness of the mixing layer. The acoustic pressure field is, on the other hand, predominantly axisymmetric, suggesting an increased relative acoustic efficiency of the axisymmetric mode of the velocity field, a characteristic that can be shown theoretically to be caused by the radial compactness of the sound source. This is confirmed by significant correlations, as high as 10 between the axisymmetric modes of the velocity and acoustic pressure fields, these values being significantly higher than those reported for two-point flow-acoustic correlations in subsonic jets. The axisymmetric and first helical modes of the velocity field are then compared with solutions of linear parabolized stability equations (PSE) to ascertain if these modes correspond to linear wavepackets. For all but the lowest frequencies close agreement is obtained for the spatial amplification, up to the end of the potential core. The radial shapes of the linear PSE solutions also agree with the experimental results over the same region. The results suggests that, despite the broadband character of the turbulence, the evolution of Strouhal numbers 0.3 <= St <= 0.9 and azimuthal modes 0 and 1 can be modelled as linear wavepackets, and these are associated with the sound radiated to low polar angles. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Shockwave lithotripsy repeatedly focuses shockwaves on kidney stones to induce their fracture, partially through cavitation erosion. A typical side effect of the procedure is hemorrhage, which is potentially the result of the growth and collapse of bubbles inside blood vessels. To identify the mechanisms by which shock-induced collapse could lead to the onset of injury, we study an idealized problem involving a preexisting bubble in a deformable vessel. We utilize a high-order accurate, shock- and interface-capturing, finite-volume scheme and simulate the three-dimensional shock-induced collapse of an air bubble immersed in a cylindrical water column which is embedded in a gelatin/water mixture. The mixture is a soft tissue simulant, 10% gelatin by weight, and is modeled by the stiffened gas equation of state. The bubble dynamics of this model configuration are characterized by the collapse of the bubble and its subsequent jetting in the direction of the propagation of the shockwave. The vessel wall, which is defined by the material interface between the water and gelatin/water mixture, is invaginated by the collapse and distended by the impact of the jet. The present results show that the highest measured pressures and deformations occur when the volumetric confinement of the bubble is strongest, the bubble is nearest the vessel wall and/or the angle of incidence of the shockwave reduces the distance between the jet tip and the nearest vessel surface. For a particular case considered, the 40 MPa shockwave utilized in this study to collapse the bubble generated a vessel wall pressure of almost 450 MPa and produced both an invagination and distention of nearly 50% of the initial vessel radius on a O (10) ns timescale. These results are indicative of the significant potential of shock-induced collapse to contribute to the injury of blood vessels in shockwave lithotripsy. (C) 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Laminar and turbulent natural convection inside concentric spherical shells with isothermal cold and hot boundaries is numerically investigated up to Rayleigh number values Ra <= 10(12) and Pr = 0.71. The study utilizes direct numerical simulation (DNS), large eddy simulation (LES) and Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) approaches for investigation of the laminar, transitional and fully developed turbulent flow regimes, respectively. Three-dimensional flow patterns for slightly supercritical oscillatory flow regime inside the shell, with internal/external diameter ratio equal to D-i/D-o = 0.714 are presented and may be potentially useful for verification of the future linear stability analysis results. Particular attention has been given to the complex, fully three-dimensional unsteady flows occurring in narrow shell geometries characterized by 0.85 <= D-i/D-o <= 0.95. For this geometry considerable deviations in predicted heat flux rate through the shell boundaries are observed when compared with existing heat transfer correlations for the entire range of Ra numbers. The deviations tend to increase for transitional and fully turbulent flows. A new correlation for the heat transfer rate is suggested for laminar and transitional flow regimes. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

article | DOI |

Abstract: Turbulent jet noise is a controversial fluid mechanical puzzle that has amused and bewildered researchers for more than half a century. Whereas numerical simulations are now capable of simultaneously predicting turbulence and its radiated sound, the theoretical framework that would guide noise-control efforts is incomplete. Wave packets are intermittent, advecting disturbances that are correlated over distances far exceeding the integral scales of turbulence. Their signatures are readily distinguished in the vortical, turbulent region; the irrotational, evanescent near field; and the propagating far field. We review evidence of the existence, energetics, dynamics, and acoustic efficiency of wave packets. We highlight how extensive data available from simulations and modern measurement techniques can be used to distill acoustically relevant turbulent motions. The evidence supports theories that seek to represent wave packets as instability waves, or more general modal solutions of the governing equations, and confirms the acoustic importance of these structures in the aft-angle radiation of high subsonic and supersonic jets. The resulting unified view of wave packets provides insights that can help guide control strategies. |

Pirozzoli, S. and Colonius, T. | Generalized characteristic relaxation boundary conditions for unsteady compressible flow simulations | 2013 | Journal of Computational Physics Vol. 248, pp. 109-126 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We develop numerical boundary conditions for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations based on a generalized relaxation approach (GRCBC), which hinges on locally one-dimensional characteristic projection at the computational boundaries, supplemented with available information from the flow exterior. The basic idea is to estimate the amplitude of incoming characteristic waves through first-order one-sided finite-difference approximations which involve the value of the reference flow state at the first exterior ( ghost) point. Unlike other characteristic-based relaxation methods, the present one requires minimal user-supplied input, including the reference flow state, which may be totally or partially known, and in general may vary both in space and time. Furthermore, it can be applied to any type of computational boundary, either inflow or outflow, either subsonic or supersonic. The method is theoretically predicted to convey reduced reflection of waves at computational boundaries compared to other ones, and to have better properties of frequency response to injected disturbances. Numerical tests confirm the improvement of the nonreflecting performance, and demonstrate high degree of flexibility, also for problems with non-trivial far-field boundary conditions (e.g. flows in rotating reference frames) and for the artificial stimulation of subsonic turbulent boundary layers.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: This paper makes contributions towards reduced-order models of wave packets in supersonic, turbulent jets. Wave packets are large-scale turbulent structures that are correlated and advected over distances that are large compared to the integral scales of turbulence, i.e., many jet diameters at the lowest frequencies. They are thought to be responsible for the peak noise radiated at shallow angles to the jet axis. Linear wave packet models based on the Parabolized Stability Equations (PSE) have been shown in the past to be in excellent agreement with statistical structures educed from experimental pressure and velocity data in subsonic jets. Here, we extend these models to supersonic jets and validate them using a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) database for an isothermal and amoderately heated Mach 1.5 turbulent jets. For supersonic jets, inlet conditions for PSE models are ambiguous, as a parallel flow stability analysis shows several unstable modes at the inlet cross section. We develop a bi-orthogonal decomposition and project the LES data onto the relevant families of instability waves. These serve as inlet conditions, including the amplitude and shape functions, for PSE solutions which are then favorably compared to the near-field pressure fields educed from LES.

An azimuthal ring array of six microphones, whose polar angle, theta, was progressively varied, allows the decomposition of the acoustic pressure into azimuthal Fourier modes. In agreement with past observations, the sound field for low polar angles (measured with respect to the jet axis) is found to be dominated by the axisymmetric mode, particularly at the peak Strouhal number. The axisymmetric mode of the acoustic field can be clearly associated with an axially non-compact source, in the form of a wavepacket: the sound pressure level for peak frequencies is found be superdirective for all Mach numbers considered, with exponential decay as a function of (1 - M-c cos theta)(2), where M-c is the Mach number based on the phase velocity U-c of the convected wave. While the mode m = 1 spectrum scales with Strouhal number, suggesting that its energy content is associated with turbulence scales, the axisymmetric mode scales with Helmholtz number - the ratio between source length scale and acoustic wavelength. The axisymmetric radiation has a stronger velocity dependence than the higher-order azimuthal modes, again in agreement with predictions of wavepacket models. We estimate the axial extent of the source of the axisymmetric component of the sound field to be of the order of six to eight jet diameters. This estimate is obtained in two different ways, using, respectively, the directivity shape and the velocity exponent of the sound radiation. The analysis furthermore shows that compressibility plays a significant role in the wavepacket dynamics, even at this low Mach number. Velocity fluctuations on the jet centreline are reduced as the Mach number is increased, an effect that must be accounted for in order to obtain a correct estimation of the velocity dependence of sound radiation. Finally, the higher-order azimuthal modes of the sound field are considered, and a model for the low-angle sound radiation by helical wavepackets is developed. The measured sound for azimuthal modes 1 and 2 at low Strouhal numbers is seen to correspond closely to the predicted directivity shapes. |

article | DOI |

Abstract: Natural convection in a spherical geometry is considered for prediction of the buoyancy of single- and double-walled balloons in a cryogenic environment such as Titan's atmosphere. The steady-state flow characteristics obtained by solving the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations with a standard turbulence model are used to determine the net buoyancy as a function of heat input. Thermal radiation effects are shown to have a minor impact on the buoyancy, as would he expected at cryogenic conditions. The predicted buoyancy and temperature fields compare favorably with experiments preformed on a 1-m-diameter Montgolfiere prototype in a cryogenic facility. In addition, both numerical and experimental results were compared with correlations for the heat transfer coefficients for free convection internal and external to the balloon as well as in the concentric gap of the double-walled balloons. Finally, scaling issues related to inferring the performance of the full-scale Montgolfiere from the model-scale results are examined. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved numerically to predict the coupled motion of a falling particle and the surrounding fluid as the particle impacts and rebounds from a planar wall. The method is validated by comparing the numerical simulations of a settling sphere with experimental measurements of the sphere trajectory and the accompanying flow field. The normal collision process is then studied for a range of impact Stokes numbers. A contact model of the liquid solid interaction and elastic effect is developed that incorporates the elasticity of the solids to permit the rebound trajectory to be simulated accurately. The contact model is applied when the particle is sufficiently close to the wall that it becomes difficult to resolve the thin lubrication layer. The model is calibrated with new measurements of the particle trajectories and reproduces the observed coefficient of restitution over a range of impact Stokes numbers from 1 to 1000. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: High speed spray cleaning which utilize droplets impact has been used for removing contaminants from wafer surface. When a droplet impacts a solid surface at high speed, the contact periphery expands very quickly and liquid compressibility plays an important role in the initial dynamics and the formation of lateral jets. Impact results in high pressures that can clean or damage the surface. In this study, we numerically investigated a high speed droplet impacts on a solid wall. In order to compare the available theory and experiments, 1 D, 2D and axisymmetric solutions are obtained. The generated pressures, shock speeds, and the lateral jetting mechanism are investigated; especially the effect of target compliance is focused. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We present experimental and theoretical analyses of the response of high-speed, high-Reynolds-number, round jets to impulsive forcing with arc-filament-plasma actuators. The impulse response is obtained with forcing Strouhal numbers, based on the nozzle exit diameter and exit center line velocity, less than 0.1. The resulting phase-averaged near-field pressure signature displays a compact wave with a positive peak preceding a negative one, indicative of a large scale structure in the shear layer of the jet. Scaling laws derived by operating the jet at four subsonic Mach numbers are used to distinguish this hydrodynamic component of the phase-averaged jet response from the direct actuator noise. As the forcing frequency increases, the compact waves in the near-field pressure signal overlap each other, indicating interaction of the growing seeded structures. For this regime, the phase-averaged response is approximately replicated by linear superposition of the impulse response, thereby demonstrating the quasi-linearity of structure interaction. A novel application of linear parabolized stability theory yields a successful model of the impulse response. (C) 2012 American Institute of Physics. [http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4772191] |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The effect of distributed bubble nuclei sizes on shock propagation in a bubbly liquid is numerically investigated. An ensemble-averaged technique is employed to derive the statistically averaged conservation laws for polydisperse bubbly flows. A finite-volume method is developed to solve the continuum bubbly flow equations coupled to a single-bubble-dynamic equation that incorporates the effects of heat transfer, liquid viscosity and compressibility. The one-dimensional shock computations reveal that the distribution of equilibrium bubble sizes leads to an apparent damping of the averaged shock dynamics due to phase cancellations in oscillations of the different-sized bubbles. If the distribution is sufficiently broad, the phase cancellation effect can dominate over the single-bubble-dynamic dissipation and the averaged shock profile is smoothed out. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

Abstract: Shock propagation through a bubbly liquid contained in a deformable tube is considered. Quasi-one-dimensional mixture-averaged flow equations that include fluid-structure interaction are formulated. The steady shock relations are derived and the nonlinear effect due to the gas-phase compressibility is examined. Experiments are conducted in which a free-falling steel projectile impacts the top of an air/water mixture in a polycarbonate tube, and stress waves in the tube material and pressure on the tube wall are measured. The experimental data indicate that the linear theory is incapable of properly predicting the propagation speeds of finite-amplitude waves in a mixture-filled tube; the shock theory is found to more accurately estimate the measured wave speeds. |

Abstract: We review and expand on the control of separated flows over flat plates and aerofoils at low Reynolds numbers associated with micro air vehicles. Experimental observations of the steady-state and transient lift response to actuation, and its dependence on the actuator, aerofoil geometry and flow conditions, are discussed and an attempt is made to unify them in terms of their excitation of periodic and transient vortex shedding. We also examine strategies for closed-loop flow and flight control using actuation of leading-edge vortices. |

Abstract: We present a new model for bubbly cavitating flows. Based on volume-averaged equations, a subgrid model is added to account for a bubble, or multiple bubbles, within each computational cell. The model converges to the solution of ensemble-averaged bubbly flow equations for weak oscillations and monodisperse systems. In the other extreme, it also converges to the theoretical solution for a single oscillating bubble, and captures the bubble radius evolution and the pressure disturbance induced in the liquid. A substantial saving of computational time is achieved compared to ensemble-averaged models for polydisperse mixtures. |

Guðmundsson, K. and Colonius, T. | Instability wave models for the near-field fluctuations of turbulent jets | 2011 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 689, pp. 97-128 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Previous work has shown that aspects of the evolution of large-scale structures, particularly in forced and transitional mixing layers and jets, can be described by linear and nonlinear stability theories. However, questions persist as to the choice of the basic (steady) flow field to perturb, and the extent to which disturbances in natural (unforced), initially turbulent jets may be modelled with the theory. For unforced jets, identification is made difficult by the lack of a phase reference that would permit a portion of the signal associated with the instability wave to be isolated from other, uncorrelated fluctuations. In this paper, we investigate the extent to which pressure and velocity fluctuations in subsonic, turbulent round jets can be described as linear perturbations to the mean flow field. The disturbances are expanded about the experimentally measured jet mean flow field, and evolved using linear parabolized stability equations (PSE) that account, in an approximate way, for the weakly non-parallel jet mean flow field. We utilize data from an extensive microphone array that measures pressure fluctuations just outside the jet shear layer to show that, up to an unknown initial disturbance spectrum, the phase, wavelength, and amplitude envelope of convecting wavepackets agree well with PSE solutions at frequencies and azimuthal wavenumbers that can be accurately measured with the array. We next apply the proper orthogonal decomposition to near-field velocity fluctuations measured with particle image velocimetry, and show that the structure of the most energetic modes is also similar to eigenfunctions from the linear theory. Importantly, the amplitudes of the modes inferred from the velocity fluctuations are in reasonable agreement with those identified from the microphone array. The results therefore suggest that, to predict, with reasonable accuracy, the evolution of the largest-scale structures that comprise the most energetic portion of the turbulent spectrum of natural jets, nonlinear effects need only be indirectly accounted for by considering perturbations to the mean turbulent flow field, while neglecting any non-zero frequency disturbance interactions. |

Joe, W., Colonius, T. and MacMynowski, D. | Feedback control of vortex shedding from an inclined flat plate | 2011 | Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics Vol. 25(1-4), pp. 221-232 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Open- and closed-loop control of vortex shedding in two-dimensional flow over a flat plate at high angle of attack is numerically investigated at a Reynolds number of 300. Unsteady actuation is modeled as a body force near the leading or trailing edge and is directed either upstream or downstream. For moderate angles of attack, sinusoidal forcing at the natural shedding frequency results in phase locking, with a periodic variation of lift at the same frequency, leading to higher unsteady lift than the natural shedding. However, at sufficiently high angles of attack, a subharmonic of the forcing frequency is also excited and the average lift over the forcing period varies from cycle-to-cycle in a complex manner. It is observed that the periods with the highest averaged lift are associated with particular phase differences between the forcing and the lift, but that this highest-lift shedding cycle is not always stably maintained with open-loop forcing. We design a feedback algorithm to lock the forcing with the phase shift associated with the highest period-averaged lift. It is shown that the compensator results in a stable phase-locked limit cycle for a broader range of forcing frequencies than the open-loop control, and that it is able to stabilize otherwise unstable high-lift limit cycles that cannot be obtained with open-loop control. For example, at an angle of attack of 40A degrees, the feedback controller can increase the averaged magnitude of force on the plate by 76% and increase the averaged lift coefficient from 1.33 to 2.43. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Experiments are conducted to investigate the ability of variable-pressure pulsed-blowing actuation to maintain a constant lift force on a low-aspect-ratio semicircular wing in a longitudinally gusting flow. Dynamic models of the lift response to actuation and the lift response to longitudinal gusting are obtained through modern system identification methods. Robust closed-loop controllers are synthesized using a mixed-sensitivity loop-shaping approach. An additional feedforward disturbance compensator is designed based on a model of the unsteady aerodynamics. The controllers show suppression of lift fluctuations at low gust frequencies, f < 0.8 Hz (reduced frequency, k < 0.09). At higher frequencies, the control performance degrades due to limitations related to the time for a disturbance, created by the actuators, to convect over the wing and establish the flowfield that leads to enhanced lift on the wing. |

Olsman, W.F.J. and Colonius, T. | Numerical Simulation of Flow over an Airfoil with a Cavity | 2011 | AIAA Journal Vol. 49(1), pp. 143-149 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Two-dimensional direct numerical simulation of the flow over a NACA0018 airfoil with a cavity is presented. The low Reynolds number simulations are validated by means of flow visualizations carried out in a water channel. From the simulations, it follows that there are two main regimes of flow inside the cavity. Depending on the angle of attack, the first or the second shear-layer mode (Rossiter tone) is present. The global effect of the cavity on the flow around the airfoil is the generation of vortices that reduce flow separation downstream of the cavity. At high positive angles of attack, the flow separates in front of the cavity, and the separated flow interacts with the cavity, causing the generation of smaller-scale structures and a narrower wake compared with the case when no cavity is present. At certain angles of attack, the numerical results suggest the possibility of a higher lift-to-drag ratio for the airfoil with cavity compared with the airfoil without cavity. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Trapping of vortices in a cavity has been explored in recent years as a drag reduction measure for thick airfoils. If, however, trapping fails, then oscillation of the cavity flow may couple with elastic vibration modes of the airfoil. To examine this scenario, the effect of small amplitude vertical motion on the oscillation of the shear layer above the cavity is studied by acoustic forcing simulating a vertical translation of a modified NACA0018 profile. At low Reynolds numbers based on the chord (O(10(4))), natural instability modes of this shear layer are observed for Strouhal numbers based on the cavity width of order unity. Acoustic forcing sufficiently close to the natural instability frequency induces a strong non-linear response due to lock-in of the shear layer. At higher Reynolds numbers (above 10(5)) for Strouhal number 0.6 or lower, no natural instabilities of the shear layer and only a linear response to forcing were observed. The dynamical pressure difference across the airfoil is then dominated by added mass effects, as was confirmed by numerical simulations. |

Ando, K. | Effects of polydispersity in bubbly flows | 2010 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: This thesis concerns the dynamics of bubbly flows with a distribution of equilibrium bubble sizes. The main goal is to formulate the physical and numerical models of continuum bubbly flows that enable us to efficiently compute the average mixture dynamics. Numerical simulations are conducted to quantify the effects of bubble size distributions on the averaged dynamics for several model flows.First, the ensemble-averaged conservation laws for polydisperse bubbly flows are derived. One-way-coupled flow computations are conducted to illustrate that the different-sized bubbles can oscillate with different frequencies. The resulting phase cancellations can be regarded as an apparent damping of the averaged dynamics of polydisperse flows. A high-order-accurate finite-volume method is then developed to compute the flow, paying special attention to issues of wave dispersion and stiffness. Next, computations of one-dimensional shock propagation through bubbly liquids are performed. The numerical experiments reveal that the bubble size distribution has a profound impact on the averaged shock structure. If the distribution is sufficiently broad, the apparent damping due to the phase cancellations can dominate over the single-bubble-dynamic dissipation (due to thermal, viscous, and compressibility effects) and the averaged shock dynamics become insensitive to the individual bubble dynamics. One-dimensional cloud cavitation caused by fluid-structure interaction is also solved to investigate the collapse of cavitation clouds with both monodisperse and polydisperse nuclei. The phase cancellations among the cavitation bubbles with broad nuclei size distributions are found to eliminate violent cloud collapse in the averaged dynamics. Finally, shock propagation through a bubbly liquid-filled, deformable tube is considered. The quasi-one-dimensional conservation law that takes into account structural deformation is formulated and steady shock relations are derived. The results are compared to water-hammer experiments; the present shock theory gives better agreement with the measured wave speeds than linear theory. This indicates that the gas-phase nonlinearity needs to be included to accurately predict the propagation speeds of finite-amplitude waves in a deformable tube filled with a bubbly liquid. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Numerical simulations are performed to investigate the interaction of acoustic waves with an array (if equally spaced two-dimensional microcavities on an otherwise flat plate without external boundary-layer flow. This acoustic scattering problem is important in the design of ultrasonic absorptive coatings for hypersonic laminar flow control. The reflection coefficient, characterizing the ratio of the reflected wave amplitude to the incident wave amplitude, is computed as a function of the acoustic wave frequency and angle of incidence, for coatings of different porosities, at various acoustic Reynolds numbers relevant to hypersonic flight. Overall, the numerical results validate predictions from existing theoretical modeling. In general, the amplitude of the reflection coefficient has local minima at some specific frequencies. A simple model to predict these frequencies is presented. The simulations also highlight the presence or resonant acoustic modes caused by coupling of small-scale scattered waves near the coating surface. Finally, the cavity depth and the porosity are identified as the most important parameters for coating design. Guidelines for the choice of these parameters are suggested. |

Chen, K.K., Colonius, T. and Taira, K. | The leading-edge vortex and quasisteady vortex shedding on an accelerating plate | 2010 | Physics of Fluids Vol. 22(3) |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A computational inquiry focuses on leading-edge vortex (LEV) growth and shedding during acceleration of a two-dimensional flat plate at a fixed 10 degrees-60 degrees angle of attack and low Reynolds number. The plate accelerates from rest with a velocity given by a power of time ranging from 0 to 5. During the initial LEV growth, subtraction of the added mass lift from the computed lift reveals an LEV-induced lift augmentation evident across all powers and angles of attack. For the range of Reynolds numbers considered, a universal time scale exists for the peak when alpha >= 30 degrees, with augmentation lasting about four to five chord lengths of translation. This time scale matches well with the half-stroke of a flying insect. An oscillating pattern of leading- and trailing-edge vortex shedding follows the shedding of the initial LEV. The nondimensional frequency of shedding and lift coefficient minima and maxima closely match their values in the absence of acceleration. These observations support a quasisteady theory of vortex shedding, where dynamics are determined primarily by velocity and not acceleration. Finally, the nondimensional vortex formation time is found to be a function of the Reynolds number, but only weakly when the Reynolds number is high. (C) 2010 American Institute of Physics.

inproceedings | DOI URL |

Abstract: We report on the development of parabolized stability equation models to predict the evolution of low frequencies, large-scale wavepacket structures in turbulent jets and their radiated sound. We consider computations and data corresponding to high subsonic and supersonic jets from circular nozzles. Previous methods are extended to consider nonlinear interactions amongst the waves and use a Kirchhoff-surface type approach to project the near-field wavepacket amplitudes to the far-field. Linear PSE, whose initial conditions are chosen to provide an overall amplitude reference, show excellent agreement for the wavepacket amplitudes and phases with microphone array data just outside the jet shear layers, especially when the microphone data are processed to filter out contributions from uncorrelated fluctuations. Far-field sound predictions based on the linear PSE are also in reasonable agreement with far-field data. In order to investigate nonlinearity, we use an LES database to evaluate initial conditions for the PSE modes, and then compare their later evolution along the jet. Preliminary cases show some sensitivity to the initial amplitudes and their phases, and that nonlinear effects may be important in predicting the far-field sound based on the initial (near-nozzle) spectrum of disturbances.

article | DOI |

Abstract: Compressible large-eddy simulations of turbulent flow over a wall-mounted hump with active flow control are performed and compared with previous experiments. The flow is characterized by the unsteady separation before the steep trailing edge, which naturally reattaches downstream of the hump to form an unsteady turbulent separation bubble. The low Mach number large-eddy simulation demonstrated a good prediction of surface pressure coefficient, separation-bubble length, and velocity profiles compared with experiments. The effect of compressibility on the baseline flow is documented and analyzed and is found to increase the separation-bubble size, due to a reduced growth rate. Control is applied just before the natural separation point via steady suction and zero-net-mass-flux oscillatory forcing, and steady suction is shown to be more effective in decreasing the size of the separation bubble and pressure drag for the control parameters investigated. Controlled flow at a compressible subsonic Mach number is applied, and found to be slightly less effective than the same control parameters at low Mach numbers. |

phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: In this thesis we study pressure fluctuations associated with large-scale coherent structures in turbulent round and serrated jets. Linear disturbances to the turbulent mean flow of the round jet are modeled via linear stability analysis and the Parabolized Stability Equations (PSE). We show that PSE provides better agreement with near-field microphone-array data at low frequencies than previous models based on linear stability theory. We examine the extent to which microphone data is contaminated by fluctuations uncorrelated with large-scale structures. By filtering out the uncorrelated fluctuations, via the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), better agreement between data and theory is obtained. We next extend the linear stability analysis of round jets to include the effects of azimuthal inhomogeneities of serrated jets. We solve the resulting system of equations and find new modes, associated with the streamwise vorticity of the serrated-jet mean flow. All unstable modes of the serrated jet are stabilized, potentially explaining the noise reduction achieved by such jets. We also compare these predictions to POD-filtered microphone measurements, generally finding good agreement. |

Joe, W.T. | Optimized feedback control of vortex shedding on an inclined flat plate | 2010 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: This thesis examines flow control and the potentially favorable effects of feedback, associated with unsteady actuation in separated flows over airfoils.The objective of the flow control is to enhance lift at post-stall angles of attack by changing the dynamics of the wake vortices. We present results from a numerical study of unsteady actuation on a two-dimensional flat plate at post-stall angles of attack at Reynolds number (Re) of 300 and 3000. At Re=300, the control waveform is optimized and a feedback strategy is developed to optimize the phase of the control relative to the lift with either a sinusoidal or the optimized waveform, resulting in a high-lift limit cycle of vortex shedding. Also at Re=3000, we show that certain frequencies and actuator waveforms lead to stabl(high-lift) limit cycles, in which the flow is phase locked to the actuation. First, a two-dimensional flat plate model at a high angle of attack at a Re of 300 is considered. We design the feedback to slightly adjust the frequency and/or phase of actuation to lock it to a particular phase of the lift, thus achieving a phase-locked flow with the maximal period-averaged lift over every cycle of acutation. With the sinusoidal forcing and feedback, we show that it is possible to optimize the phase of the control relative to the lift in order to achieve the highest possible period-averaged lift in a consistent fashion. However, continuous sinusoidal forcing could be adding circulation when it is unnecessary, or undesirable. Thus we employ an adjoint-based optimization in order to find the waveform (time history of the jet velocty) that maximizes the lift for a given actuation amplitude. The adjoint of the linearized perturbed equations is solved backwards in time to obtain the gradient of the lift to changes in actuation (the jet velocity), and this information is used to iteratively improve the controls. Optimal control provides a periodic control waveform, resulting in high lift shedding cycle with minimal control input. However, if applied in open loop, the flow fails to phase lock onto the optimal waveform, degrading the lift performance. Thus, the optimized waveform is also implemented in a closed-loop controller where the control signal is shifted or deformed periodically to adjust to the (instantaneous) frequency of the lift fluctuations. Finally, we apply the tools developed and knowledge gained at Re=300 to a Re of 3000 on a thin airfoil with a thickness-to-chord ratio of 4 which were chosen to match the experimental studies of Greenblatt et al. (2008). |

inproceedings | DOI URL |

Abstract: Optimal control theory is combined with the numerical simulation of an incompressible viscous flow to control vortex shedding in order to maximize lift. A two-dimensional flat plate model is considered at a high angle of attack and a Reynolds number of 300. Actuation is provided by unsteady mass injection near the trailing edge and is modeled by a compact body force. The adjoint of the linearized perturbed equations is solved backwards in time to obtain the gradient of the lift to changes in actuation (the jet velocity), and this information is used to iteratively improve the controls. The optimized control waveform is nearly periodic and locked to vortex shedding. We compare the results with sinusoidal open- and closed-loop control and observe that the optimized control is able to achieve higher lift than the sinusoidal forcing with more than 50% lower momentum coefficients. The optimized waveform is also implemented in a simple closed-loop controller where the control signal is shifted or deformed periodically to adjust to the (instantaneous) frequency of the lift fluctuations. The feedback utilizes a narrowband filter and an Extended Kalman Filter to robustly estimate the phase of vortex shedding and achieve phase-locked, high lift flow states. |

Krimmel, J. | Numerical simulation of wave focusing and scattering in shock wave lithotripsy | 2010 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: In this work we simulate shock wave focusing and scattering that occurs during shock wave lithotripsy, a noninvasive medical treatment for kidney stone disease. Shock waves are generated outside the body of the patient and are focused at the kidney stone with the intention of pulverizing the stone while it remains inside the patient. The patient can then ostensibly pass the debris naturally. We use a multidimensional second-order method of the Godunov type with slope limiters and shock capturing capability to solve the inviscid Euler equations. Because we begin with the fundamental statements of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy, we simulate all the relevant acoustics occurring during a typical treatment.Lithotripters, the machines that generate and focus shock waves, can be classified according to the mechanism of shock generation. In this work, we simulate three different types of lithotripters: electrohydraulic, piezoelectric, and electromagnetic. We choose one representative of each lithotripter type: the Dornier HM3, a research piezoelectric lithotripter array, and the XX-Es, respectively. We first study a model of the in vitro setting for each lithotripter, where shock waves are generated and focus in a bath of pure water. Next, we introduce different heterogeneous materials near the focus of the lithotripter to model the effect of the body of an actual patient, i.e., the in vivo condition. We use two approaches in this modeling effort. One approach is to use simple geometrical models for the body cavity and kidney that we created ourselves. The other approach is to import real anatomical data made available from the VOXEL-MAN Group. In studying the focal region acoustics, we specifically examine the maximum calculated pressures. These pressures represent the forces that will ultimately cause the kidney stone to break. We also study the pulse intensity integral, i.e., the energy density carried by the focusing shock wave. In addition to these pressures and energy densities, we are interested in investigating how soft tissue in the focal region may potentially be damaged by the resulting wavefields. We isolate two mechanisms that are thought to be important in soft tissue injury: shearing and cavitation. We calculate estimates for the maximum principal normal and shear strains in the focal region in addition to the corresponding strain rates and use these as metrics for the potential for damage via shearing. We study the calculated negative pressure fields in this region as a surrogate for potential damage caused by cavitation. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We report on recent efforts to develop predictive models for the pressure and other flow variables in the focal region of shock wave lithotripters. Baseline simulations of three representative lithotripters (electrohydraulic, electromagnetic, and piezoelectric) compare favorably with in vitro experiments (in a water bath). We proceed to model and investigate how shock focusing is altered by the presence of material interfaces associated with different types of tissue encountered along the shock path, and by the presence of cavitation bubbles that are excited by tensile pressures associated with the focused shock wave. We use human anatomical data, but simplify the description by assuming that the tissue behaves as a fluid, and by assuming cylindrical symmetry along the shock path. Scattering by material interfaces is significant, and regions of high pressure amplitudes (both compressive and tensile) are generated almost 4 cm postfocus. Bubble dynamics generate secondary shocks whose strength depends on the density of bubbles and the pulse repetition frequency (PRF). At sufficiently large densities, the bubbles also attenuate the shock. Together with experimental evidence, the simulations suggest that high PRF may be counterproductive for stone comminution. Finally, we discuss how the lithotripter simulations can be used as input to more detailed physical models that attempt to characterize the mechanisms by which collapsing cavitation models erode stones, and by which shock waves and bubbles may damage tissue. |

article | DOI |

Abstract: A wave-packet Ansatz is used to model jet noise generation by large-scale turbulence. In this approach, an equivalent source is defined based on the two-point space-time correlation of hydrodynamic pressure on a conical surface surrounding the jet plume. The surface is sufficiently near the turbulent flow region to be dominated by non-propagating hydrodynamic signatures of large-scale turbulent structures, yet sufficiently far that linear behavior can be assumed in extending the near-field pressure to the acoustic field. In the present study, a 78-microphone array was used to measure hydrodynamic pressure on the conical surface in order to identify parameters for the model and to validate the approach. Six microphones were distributed in the azimuthal direction at each of 13 axial locations spanning the first 8 jet diameters, allowing decomposition of azimuthal modes m = 0 and m = 1. We show that a source model based on a Gaussian correlation function provides a consistently good representation of the noise source attributed to large-scale structures. The results provide evidence that large-scale wave-like structures, known to dominate aft radiation at supersonic phase speeds, are also relevant at subsonic speeds. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Computational models are developed to predict the natural convection heat transfer and buoyancy for a Montgolfiere under conditions relevant to the Titan atmosphere. Idealized single- and double-walled balloon geometries are simulated using algorithms suitable for both laminar and (averaged) turbulent convection. Steady-state performance results are compared with existing heat transfer coefficient correlations. The laminar results, in particular, are used to test the validity of the correlations in the absence of uncertainties associated with turbulence modeling. Some discrepancies are observed, which appear to he primarily associated with temperature non-uniformity on the balloon surface. The predicted buoyancy for both the single- and double-walled balloons in the turbulent convection regime, predicted with standard two-equation turbulence models, showed trends similar to those with the empirical correlations. There was also good agreement with recently conducted experiments in a cryogenic facility designed to simulate the Titan atmosphere. |

inproceedings | DOI URL |

Abstract: Flow control is applied to a three-dimensional post-stall flow around a rectangular low-aspect-ratio wing. Steady actuation is used to examine effective flow control setups that modify the vortex dynamics in the wake and achieve increase in lift. For one of the setups, oscillatory forcing is then used to examine the influence of actuation frequency. It is found that sinusoidal actuation requires less momentum to the flow field to achieve lift increase compared to steady momentum injection. There are two observed ranges of forcing frequency at which the flow locks onto period-one and period-two high-lift states. Discussions of the ongoing work on stabilizing separated flow about these periodic high-lift states are offered. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: In an effort to enhance lift on low-aspect-ratio rectangular flat-plate wings in low-Reynolds-number poststall flows, periodic injection of momentum is considered along the trailing edge in this numerical study. The purpose of actuation is not to reattach the flow but to change the dynamics of the wake vortices such that the resulting lift force is increased. Periodic forcing is observed to be effective in increasing lift for various aspect ratios and angles of attack, achieving a similar lift enhancement attained by steady forcing with less momentum input. Through the investigation on the influence of the actuation frequency, it is also found that there exists a frequency at which the flow locks on to a time-periodic high-lift state. |

inproceedings | DOI URL |

Abstract: The ability to control lift in unsteady flows using active flow control is examined experimentally with a three-dimensional, low-aspect-ratio wing and pulsed-blowing actuators as the test article. An unsteady flow wind tunnel is used to generate step-like and harmonic oscillations in flow speed and the corresponding fluctuating lift force on the wing. A 'black box' model of the wing response to actuation is obtained using conventional system identification techniques. A robust H(infinity) controller is designed with a mixed sensitivity loop-shaping technique, whose objective was to maintain a constant lift in the unsteady flow. The controller is shown to be capable of significant reductions in lift fluctuations given step, harmonic and random input disturbance conditions. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We continue the development of the super-grid-scale model initiated in [T. Colonius, H. Ran, A super-grid-scale model for simulating compressible flow on unbounded domains. J. Comput. Phys. 182 (1) (2002) 191-212] and consider its application to linear hyperbolic systems. The super-grid-scale model consists of two parts: reduction of an unbounded to a bounded domain by a smooth coordinate transformation and a damping of those scales. For linear problems the super-grid scales are analogous to spurious numerical waves. We damp these waves by high-order undivided differences. We compute reflection coefficients for different orders of the damping and find that significant improvements are obtained when high-order damping is used.In numerical experiments with Maxwell's equations, we show that when the damping is of high order, the error from the boundary condition converges at the order of the interior scheme. We also demonstrate that the new method achieves perfectly matched layer-like accuracy. When applied to linear hyperbolic systems the stability of the super-grid-scale method follows from its construction. This makes our method particularly suitable for problems for which perfectly matched layers are unstable. We present results for two such problems: elastic waves in anisotropic media and isotropic elastic waves in wave guides with traction-free surfaces. (C) 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. |

Franck, J. | Large-eddy simulation of flow separation and control on a wall-mounted hump | 2009 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Active flow control techniques such as synthetic jets have been successful in increasing the performance of naturally separating flows on post-stall airfoils, bluff body shedding, and internal flows such as wide-angle diffusers. However, in order to implement robust control techniques there is a need for accurate computational tools capable of predicting unsteady separation and control at high Reynolds numbers. This thesis developed a compressible large-eddy simulation (LES) and validated it by simulating the turbulent flow over a wall-mounted hump. The flow is characterized by an unsteady, turbulent recirculation region along the trailing edge of the geometry, and is simulated at a Reynolds number of 500,000. Active flow control is applied just before the natural separation point via steady suction and zero-net mass flux oscillatory forcing. The addition of control is shown to be effective in decreasing the size of the separation bubble and pressure drag. LES baseline and controlled results are validated against previously performed experiments by Seifert and Pack and those performed for the NASA Langley Workshop on Turbulent Flow Separation and Control. Three test cases are explored to determine the effect of explicit filtering and the Smagorinsky subgrid scale model on the average flow and turbulent statistics. The flow physics and the control effectiveness are investigated at two Mach numbers, M=0.25 and M=0.6. Compressibility is shown to increase the separation bubble length in the baseline case, but does not significantly change the effectiveness of the control. In terms of decreasing drag on the wall-mounted hump model, steady suction is more effective than oscillatory control, but both control techniques are effective in reducing the separation bubble length. Two-dimensional direct numerical simulations (DNS) of the wall-mounted hump flow are also presented, and the results show different baseline flow features than the 3D LES. However the controlled 2D flow gives an indication of the most receptive actuation frequencies around twice that of the natural shedding frequency. Two regimes of reduced actuation frequency are also explored with the 3D LES. It is found that the low frequency actuation is successful in reducing the separation bubble length, but high frequency actuation produces an average flow comparable to the baseline case, and does not result in drag or separation bubble length reduction. |

article | DOI |

Abstract: A Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) is constructed for a Mach 0.9 turbulent jet using a well-validated direct numerical simulation database. Norms are defined based on near-field volume integrals of pressure, turbulence kinetic energy, streamwise velocity, and total enthalpy, two-dimensional integrals of streamswise velocity (to match experimental measurements), and far-field integrals of pressure over a sphere. We find substantially different POD modes for the different norms, and their efficiency at representing the full data is strongly dependent upon the norm and specifically which data we attempt to represent. To reproduce near-field turbulence statistics requires relatively few modes computed by a kinetic energy or pressure norm. However, a large number of the POD modes computed using a near-field norm are required to represent the sound field. The dominant near-field POD modes computed with either the near-field pressure norm or the sound field norm have the structure of wave packets. |

Johnsen, E. and Colonius, T. | Numerical simulations of non-spherical bubble collapse | 2009 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 629, pp. 231-262 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A high-order accurate shock- and interface-capturing scheme is used to simulate the collapse of a gas bubble in water. In order to better understand the damage caused by collapsing bubbles, the dynamics of the shock-induced and Rayleigh collapse of a bubble near a planar rigid Surface and in a free field are analysed. Collapse times, bubble displacements, interfacial velocities and surface pressures are quantified as a function of the pressure ratio driving the collapse and of the initial bubble stand-off distance from the wall; these quantities are compared to the available theory and experiments and show good agreement with the data for both the bubble dynamics and the propagation of the shock emitted upon the collapse. Non-spherical collapse involves the formation of a re-entrant jet directed towards the wall or in the direction of propagation of the incoming shock. In shock-induced collapse, very high jet velocities can be achieved, and the finite time for shock propagation through the bubble may be non-negligible compared to the collapse time for the pressure ratios of interest. Several types of shock waves are generated during the collapse, including precursor and water-hammer shocks that arise from the re-entrant jet formation and its impact upon the distal side of the bubble, respectively. The water-hammer shock can generate very high pressures on the wall, far exceeding those from the incident shock. The potential damage to the neighbouring Surface Is quantified by measuring the wall pressure. The range of stand-off distances and the surface area for which amplification of the incident shock due to bubble collapse Occurs is determined. |

Ran, H.Y. and Colonius, T. | Numerical simulation of the sound radiated by a turbulent vortex ring | 2009 | International Journal of Aeroacoustics Vol. 8(4), pp. 317-336 |
article | DOI |

Abstract: The acoustic field radiated by a turbulent vortex ring is studied. Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of the fully compressible, three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations are used to generate an axisymmetric vortex ring to which 3D stochastic disturbances are added. The disturbances cause instability and turbulent transition of the vortex ring. Detailed information about temporal evolution of sound pressure level, spectrum and directivity associated with modes of oscillation and their turbulent breakdown are investigated. The peak frequency agrees well with experiments, and the modal directivities agree well with predictions of vortex sound theory. Based on the self-similar decay of the turbulent near field, the self-similar decay of the sound field is investigated. We also explore the connections with jet noise by modeling the jet as a de-correlated train of vortex rings. |

Abstract: In this paper, we report on progress towards developing physics-based models of sound generation by large-scale turbulent structures in supersonic jet shear layers generally accepted to be the source of aft-angle noise. Aside from obtaining better engineering prediction schemes, the development and optimization of long term jet noise reduction strategies based on controlling instability wave generated large-scale turbulence structures in the shear layer can be more successful if based on predictive flow-noise models, rather than on build and test approaches alone. Such models, if successful, may also provide a path by which laboratory scale demonstrations can be more reliably translated to engine scale. Results show that the noise radiated by large-scale structures in turbulent jet shear layers may be modeled using a RANS based PSE method and projected to the far-field using a Kirchhoff surface approach. A key enabler in this procedure is the development of near-field microphone arrays capable of providing the pressure statistics needed to validate the instability wave models. Our framework provides, for the first time, a deterministic model that will allow understanding and predicting noise radiated by large-scale turbulence. |

Taira, K. and Colonius, T. | Three-dimensional flows around low-aspect-ratio flat-plate wings at low Reynolds numbers | 2009 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 623, pp. 187-207 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Three-dimensional flows over impulsively translated low-aspect-ratio flat plates are investigated for Reynolds numbers of 300 and 500, with a focus on the unsteady vortex dynamics at post-stall angles of attack. Numerical simulations, validated by an oil tow-tank experiment, are performed to study the influence of aspect ratio, angle of attack and planform geometry on the wake vortices and the resulting forces on the plate. Immediately following the impulsive start, the separated flows create wake vortices that share the same topology for all aspect ratios. At large time, the tip vortices significantly influence the vortex dynamics and the corresponding forces on the wings. Depending on the aspect ratio, angle of attack and Reynolds number, the flow at large time reaches a stable steady state, a periodic cycle or aperiodic shedding. For cases of high angles of attack, an asymmetric wake develops in the spanwise direction at large time. The present results are compared to higher Reynolds number flows. Some non-rectangular planforms are also considered to examine the difference in the wakes and forces. After the impulsive start, the time at which maximum lift occurs is fairly constant for a wide range of flow conditions during the initial transient. Due to the influence of the tip vortices, the three-dimensional dynamics of the wake vortices are found to be quite different from the two-dimensional von Karman vortex street in terms of stability and shedding frequency. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We numerically investigate the application of steady blowing to three-dimensional stalled flows around low-aspect-ratio rectangular flat-plate wings at a Reynolds number of 300. The objective of this study is to explore techniques to enhance lift by directly modifying the dynamics of the wake vortices. Out of various combinations of forcing location and direction considered, we identify two configurations that provide significant lift enhancement. In these cases, actuation appears to strengthen the tip vortices for increased downward induced velocity upon the leading-edge vortices. This in turn moves the low-pressure core directly above the top surface of the wing to greatly enhance lift. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The transient lift response of a low-Reynolds-number wing subjected to small amplitude pulsatile disturbances is investigated. The wing has a small aspect ratio and a semicircular planform, and it is fully stalled at a 20 deg angle of attack. Microvalve actuators distributed along the leading edge of the wing produce the transient disturbance. It is shown that the lift response to a single pulse increases with increasing actuator supply pressure and that the lift response curves are similar to each other when scaled by the total impulse. Furthermore, for fixed actuator supply pressure, the amplitude and total impulse of the transient lift response curve increases with increasing external flow speed. In this case, the lift response curves are similar when scaled by the dynamic pressure. The lift response to a single pulse can be treated as a filter kernel, and it can be used to predict the lift time history for the arbitrary actuator input signals. The kernel is similar in shape to transient measurements obtained by other investigators on two-dimensional wings and flaps. Comparisons between the model predictions and the experiments using multiple pulse inputs and square-wave modulated input signals at low frequencies are presented. |

Brès, G.A. and Colonius, T. | Three-dimensional instabilities in compressible flow over open cavities | 2008 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 599, pp. 309-339 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Direct numerical simulations are performed to investigate the three-dimensional stability of compressible flow over open cavities. A linear stability analysis is conducted to search for three-dimensional global instabilities of the two-dimensional mean flow for cavities that are homogeneous in the spanwise direction. The presence of such instabilities is reported for a range of flow conditions and cavity aspect ratios. For cavities of aspect ratio (length to depth) of 2 and 4, the three-dimensional mode has a spanwise wavelength of approximately one cavity depth and oscillates with a frequency about one order of magnitude lower than two-dimensional Rossiter (flow/acoustics) instabilities. A steady mode of smaller spanwise wavelength is also identified for square cavities. The linear results indicate that the instability is hydrodynamic (rather than acoustic) in nature and arises from a generic centrifugal instability mechanism associated with the mean recirculating vortical flow in the downstream part of the cavity. These three-dimensional instabilities are related to centrifugal instabilities previously reported in flows over backward-facing steps, lid-driven cavity flows and Couette flows. Results from three-dimensional simulations of the nonlinear compressible Navier-Stokes equations are also reported. The formation of oscillating (and, in some cases, steady) spanwise structures is observed inside the cavity. The spanwise wavelength and oscillation frequency of these structures agree with the linear analysis predictions. When present, the shear-layer (Rossiter) oscillations experience a low-frequency modulation that arises from nonlinear interactions with the three-dimensional mode. The results are consistent with observations of low-frequency modulations and spanwise structures in previous experimental and numerical studies on open cavity flows. |

Colonius, T., Hagmeijer, R., Ando, K. and Brennen, C.E. | Statistical equilibrium of bubble oscillations in dilute bubbly flows | 2008 | Physics of Fluids Vol. 20(4) |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The problem of predicting the moments of the distribution of bubble radius in bubbly flows is considered. The particular case where bubble oscillations occur due to a rapid (impulsive or step change) change in pressure is analyzed, and it is mathematically shown that in this case, inviscid bubble oscillations reach a stationary statistical equilibrium, whereby phase cancellations among bubbles with different sizes lead to time-invariant values of the statistics. It is also shown that at statistical equilibrium, moments of the bubble radius may be computed using the period-averaged bubble radius in place of the instantaneous one. For sufficiently broad distributions of bubble equilibrium (or initial) radius, it is demonstrated that bubble statistics reach equilibrium on a time scale that is fast compared to physical damping of bubble oscillations due to viscosity, heat transfer, and liquid compressibility. The period-averaged bubble radius may then be used to predict the slow changes in the moments caused by the damping. A benefit is that period averaging gives a much smoother integrand, and accurate statistics can be obtained by tracking as few as five bubbles from the broad distribution. The period-averaged formula may therefore prove useful in reducing computational effort in models of dilute bubbly flow wherein bubbles are forced by shock waves or other rapid pressure changes, for which, at present, the strong effects caused by a distribution in bubble size can only be accurately predicted by tracking thousands of bubbles. Some challenges associated with extending the results to more general (nonimpulsive) forcing and strong two-way coupled bubbly flows are briefly discussed. (c) 2008 American Institute of Physics. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We report on the continued development of a projection approach for implementing the immersed boundary method for incompressible flows in two and three dimensions. Boundary forces and pressure are regarded as Lagrange multipliers that enable the no-slip and divergence-free constraints to be implicitly determined to arbitrary precision with no associated time-step restrictions. In order to accelerate the method, we further implement a nullspace (discrete streamfunction) method that allows the divergence-free constraint to be automatically satisfied to machine roundoff. By employing a fast sine transform technique, the linear system to determine the forces can be solved efficiently with direct or iterative techniques. A multi-domain technique is developed in order to improve far-field boundary conditions that are compatible with the fast sine transform and account for the extensive potential flow induced by the body as well as vorticity that advects/difluses to large distance from the body. The multi-domain and fast techniques are validated by comparing to the exact solutions for the potential flow induced by stationary and propagating Oseen vortices and by an impulsively-started circular cylinder. Speed-ups of more than an order-of-magnitude are achieved with the new method. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. |

Johnsen, E. | Numerical simulations of non-spherical bubble collapse with applications to shockwave lithotripsy | 2008 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) is a non-invasive medical procedure in which shockwaves are focused on kidney stones in an attempt to break them. Because the stones are usually immersed in liquid, cavitation occurs during the process. However, the stone comminution mechanisms and the bubble dynamics of SWL are not fully understood. In the present thesis, numerical simulations are employed to study axisymmetric Rayleigh collapse and shock-induced collapse of a single gas bubble in a free field and near a wall. A high-order accurate, quasi-conservative, shock- and interface-capturing scheme is developed to solve the multicomponent Euler equations.The primary contributions of the present work are the development of a new numerical framework to study compressible multicomponent flows, the characterization of the dynamics of non-spherical bubble collapse, and quantitative measurements of wall pressures generated by bubble collapse. Because of asymmetries in the flow field, a re-entrant jet develops and generates a large water-hammer pressure upon impact onto the distal side. Jet properties are calculated and, as an indication of potential damage, wall pressures are measured; pressures on the order of 1 GPa are achieved locally. In shock-induced collapse, the wall pressure is amplified by the presence of bubbles within several initial radii from the wall. Thus, the pressure generated by the bubble collapse is larger than the incoming shock. The results extended to SWL show that shock-induced collapse has tremendous potential for damage along the stone surface. Furthermore, the simulations are coupled to an elastic wave propagation code to show that bubble collapse may cause damage within kidney stones as well. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The shock-induced collapse of a pre-existing nucleus near a solid surface in the focal region of a lithotripter is investigated. The entire flow field of the collapse of a single gas bubble subjected to a lithotripter pulse is simulated using a high-order accurate shock- and interface-capturing scheme, and the wall pressure is considered as an indication of potential damage. Results from the computations show the same qualitative behavior as that observed in experiments: a re-entrant jet forms in the direction of propagation of the pulse and penetrates the bubble during collapse, ultimately hitting the distal side and generating a water-hammer shock. As a result of the propagation of this wave, wall pressures on the order of I GPa may be achieved for bubbles collapsing close to the wall. The wall pressure decreases with initial stand-off distance and pulse width and increases with pulse amplitude. For the stand-off distances considered in the present work, the wall pressure due to bubble collapse is larger than that due to the incoming shockwave; the region over which this holds may extend to ten initial radii. The present results indicate that shock-induced collapse is a mechanism with high potential for damage in shockwave lithotripsy. (a) 2008 Acoustical Society of America. [DOI: 10.1121/1.2973229] |

Taira, K. | The immersed boundary projection method and its application to simulation and control of flows around low-aspect-ratio wings | 2008 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: First, we present a new formulation of the immersed boundary method that is algebraically identical to the traditional fractional step algorithm. This method, called the immersed boundary projection method, allows for the simulations of incompressible flows over arbitrarily shaped bodies under motion and/or deformation in both two and three dimensions. The no-slip condition along the immersed boundary is enforced simultaneously with the incompressibility constraint through a single projection. The boundary force is determined implicitly without any constitutive relations for the rigid body formulation, which in turn allows the use of high CFL numbers in our simulations compared to past methods. Next, the above immersed boundary projection method is used to analyze three-dimensional separated flows around low-aspect-ratio flat-plate wings. A number of simulations highlighting the unsteady nature of the separated flows are performed for Re=300 and 500 with various aspect ratios, angles of attack, and planform geometries. The aspect ratio and angle of attack are found to have a large influence on the stability of the wake profile and the force experienced by the low-aspect-ratio wing. At early times, following an impulsive start, topologies of the wake vortices are found to be the same across different aspect ratios and angles of attack. Behind low-aspect-ratio rectangular plates, leading-edge vortices form and eventually separate as hairpin vortices following the start-up. This phenomenon is found to be similar to dynamic stall observed behind pitching plates. The detached structure would then interact with the tip vortices, reducing the downward velocity induced by the tip vortices acting upon the leading-edge vortex. At large time, depending on the aspect ratio and angles of attack, the wakes reach one of the three states: (i) a steady state, (ii) a periodic unsteady state, or (iii) an aperiodic unsteady state. We have observed that the tip effects in three-dimensional flows can stabilize the flow and also exhibit nonlinear interaction with the shedding vortices. At last, we apply steady blowing to separated flows behind the low-aspect-ratio rectangular wings. The objective of the flow control is to enhance lift at post-stall angles of attack by changing the dynamics of the wake vortices. This controller strengthens the tip vortices by engulfing the trailing-edge vortex sheet to increase the downward thrust and the downward induced velocity onto the leading-edge vortices. The tip vortices that are traditionally considered as an aerodynamic nuisance, have been used favorably to increase lift in post-stall flows for the considered low-aspect-ratio wings. |

Brès, G. | Numerical simulations of three-dimensional instabilities in cavity flows | 2007 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Direct numerical simulations are performed to investigate the stability of compressible flow over three-dimensional open cavities for future control applications.First, the typical self-sustained oscillations, commonly referred as shear-layer (Rossiter) modes, are characterized for two-dimensional cavities over a range of flow conditions. A linear stability analysis is then conducted to search for three-dimensional global instabilities of the 2D mean flow for cavities that are homogeneous in the spanwise direction. The presence of such instabilities is reported for a range of cavity configurations. For cavities of aspect ratio (length to depth) of 2 and 4, the three-dimensional mode has a spanwise wavelength of approximately 1 cavity depth and oscillates with a frequency about an order-of-magnitude lower than two-dimensional Rossiter (flow/acoustics) instabilities. A steady mode of smaller spanwise wavelength is also identified for square cavities. The linear results indicate that the instability is hydrodynamic (rather than acoustic) in nature and arises from a generic centrifugal instability mechanism associated with the mean recirculating vortical flow in the downstream part of the cavity. These three-dimensional instabilities are related to centrifugal instabilities reported in flows over backward-facing steps, lid-driven cavity flows, and Couette flows. Results from three-dimensional simulations of the nonlinear compressible Navier-Stokes equations are also reported. The formation of oscillating (and, in some cases, steady) spanwise structures is observed inside the cavity. The spanwise wavelength and oscillation frequency of these structures agree with the linear analysis predictions. When present, the shear-layer (Rossiter) oscillations experience a low-frequency modulation that arises from nonlinear interactions with the three-dimensional mode. These results are consistent with observations of low-frequency modulations and spanwise structures in previous experimental and numerical studies on open cavity flows. |

Freund, J.B., Colonius, T. and Evan, A.P. | A cumulative shear mechanism for tissue damage initiation in shock-wave lithotripsy | 2007 | Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology Vol. 33(9), pp. 1495-1503 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Evidence suggests that inertial cavitation plays an important role in the renal injury incurred during shock-wave lithotripsy. However, it is unclear how tissue damage is initiated, and significant injury typically occurs only after a sufficient dose of shock waves. Although it has been suggested that shock-induced shearing might initiate injury, estimates indicate that individual shocks do not produce sufficient shear to do so. In this paper, we hypothesize that the cumulative shear of the many shocks is damaging. This mechanism depends on whether there is sufficient time between shocks for tissue to relax to its unstrained state. We investigate the mechanism with a physics-based simulation model, wherein the basement membranes that define the tubules and vessels in the inner medulla are represented as elastic shells surrounded by viscous fluid. Material properties are estimated from in-vitro tests of renal basement membranes and documented mechanical properties of cells and extracellular gels. Estimates for the net shear deformation from a typical lithotripter shock (similar to 0.1 are found from a separate dynamic shock simulation. The results suggest that the larger interstitial volume (similar to 40 near the papilla tip gives the tissue there a relaxation time comparable to clinical shock delivery rates (similar to 1 Hz), thus allowing shear to accumulate. Away from the papilla tip, where the interstitial volume is smaller (similar to 20, the model tissue relaxes completely before the next shock would be delivered. Implications of the model are that slower delivery rates and broader focal zones should both decrease injury, consistent with some recent observations. |

Abstract: The collapse of a bubble subjected to a lithotripter pulse is studied numerically. The goal is to record the pressure exerted along the stone, as a measure of potential stone damage. It is found that the pressure due to buble collapse is much larger than that of the lithotripter pulse. Furthermore, the pressure greatly depends on the geometry of the problem (initial stand-off distance and bubble size) and on the properties of the pulse (amplitude and width). |

Abstract: In order to better understand the contribution of bubble collapse to stone comminution in shockwave lithotripsy, the shock-induced and Rayleigh collapse of a spherical air bubble is investigated using numerical simulations, and the free-field collapse of a cavitation bubble is studied experimentally. In shock-induced collapse near a wall, it is found that the presence of the bubble greatly amplifies the pressure recorded at the stone surface; the functional dependence of the wall pressure on the initial standoff distance and the amplitude are presented. In Rayleigh collapse near a solid surface, the proximity of the wall retards the flow and leads to a more prominent jet. Experiments show that re-entrant jets form in the collapse of cavitation bubbles excited by lithotripter shockwaves in a fashion comparable to previous studies of collapse near a solid surface. |

Abstract: We propose a new reduced-order model for spherical bubble dynamics that accurately captures the effects of heat and mass diffusion.

Taira, K. and Colonius, T. | The immersed boundary method: a projection approach | 2007 | Journal of Computational Physics Vol. 225(2), pp. 2118-2137 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A new formulation of the immersed boundary method with a structure algebraically identical to the traditional fractional step method is presented for incompressible flow over bodies with prescribed surface motion. Like previous methods, a boundary force is applied at the immersed surface to satisfy the no-slip constraint. This extra constraint can be added to the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations by introducing regularization and interpolation operators. The current method gives prominence to the role of the boundary force acting as a Lagrange multiplier to satisfy the no-slip condition. This role is analogous to the effect of pressure on the momentum equation to satisfy the divergence-free constraint. The current immersed boundary method removes slip and non-divergence-free components of the velocity field through a projection. The boundary force is determined implicitly without any constitutive relations allowing the present formulation to use larger CFL numbers compared to some past methods. Symmetry and positive-definiteness of the system are preserved such that the conjugate gradient method can be used to solve for the flow field. Examples show that the current formulation achieves second-order temporal accuracy and better than first-order spatial accuracy in L-2-norms for one- and two-dimensional test problems. Results from two-dimensional simulations of flows over stationary and moving cylinders are in good agreement with those from previous experimental and numerical studies. (c) 2007 Elsevier Inc.

Abstract: We investigate the linear stability characteristics of the mean velocity profiles produced by chevron nozzles. We show that chevron instability waves can be decomposed into azimuthal modes analogously to those of round jets. This facilitates a direct comparison of growth rates and mode structure between different nozzles. We find that the three nozzles used in this study share a set of modes, referred to as primary modes. In addition, we find that there exist modes unique to the chevrons nozzles, termed secondary modes. While chevron jets possess a much larger number of unstable modes, the modes with lowest azimuthal structure show strong suppression of growth rates in two different chevron jets. Some preliminary implications on sound generation are discussed. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: High-order accurate shock-capturing schemes are capable of properly resolving discontinuities with correct wave speeds in single-fluid Riemann problems. However, when different fluids are present, oscillations develop at interfaces. A class of existing interface-capturing methods that suppress these oscillations is based on first- and second-order accurate reconstructions with Roe solvers. In this paper, we extend these methods to high-order accurate WENO schemes and the HLLC approximate Riemann solver. In particular, we show that a finite volume formulation where the appropriately averaged primitive variables are reconstructed leads to the oscillation-free advection of an isolated interface. Furthermore, numerical experiments show no spurious oscillations for problems where shockwaves and interfaces interact. We solve the Euler equations supplemented by a stiffened equation of state to model flows of gas and liquid components. Our method is high-order accurate, quasi-conservative, shock-capturing and interface-capturing; these properties are additionally verified by considering one-dimensional multicomponent Riemann problems and a two-dimensional shock-bubble interaction.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Models for understanding and controlling oscillations in the flow past a rectangular cavity are developed. These models may be used to guide control designs, to understand performance limits of feedback, and to interpret experimental results. Traditionally, cavity oscillations are assumed to be self-sustained: no external disturbances are necessary to maintain the oscillations, and amplitudes are limited by nonlinearities. We present experimental data which suggests that in some regimes, the oscillations may not be self-sustained, but lightly damped: oscillations are sustained by external forcing, such as boundary-layer turbulence. In these regimes, linear models suffice to describe the behaviour, and the final amplitude of oscillations depends on the characteristics of the external disturbances. These linear models are particularly appropriate for describing cavities in which feedback has been used for noise suppression, as the oscillations are small and nonlinearities are less likely to be important. It is shown that increasing the gain too much in such feedback control experiments can lead to a peak-splitting phenomenon, which is explained by the linear models. Fundamental performance limits indicate that peak splitting is likely to occur for narrow-bandwidth actuators and controllers. |

Suzuki, T. and Colonius, T. | Instability waves in a subsonic round jet detected using a near-field phased microphone array | 2006 | Journal of Fluid Mechanics Vol. 565, pp. 197-226 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We propose a diagnostic technique to detect instability waves in a subsonic round jet using a phased microphone array. The detection algorithm is analogous to the beam-forming technique, which is typically used with a far-field microphone array to localize noise sources. By replacing the reference solutions used in the conventional beamforming with eigenfunctions from linear stability analysis, the amplitudes of instability waves in the axisymmetric and first two azimuthal modes are inferred. Experimental measurements with particle image velocimetry and a database from direct numerical simulation are incorporated to design a conical array that is placed just outside the mixing layer near the nozzle exit. The proposed diagnostic technique is tested in experiments by checking for consistency of the radial decay, streamwise evolution and phase correlation of hydrodynamic pressure. The results demonstrate that in a statistical sense, the pressure field is consistent with instability waves evolving in the turbulent mean flow from the nozzle exit to the end of the potential core, particularly near the most amplified frequency of each azimuthal mode. We apply this technique to study the effects of jet Mach number and temperature ratio on the azimuthal mode balance and evolution of instability waves. We also compare the results from the beam-forming algorithm with the proper orthogonal decomposition and discuss some implications for jet noise. |

Ran, H. | Numerical Study of the Dynamics and Sound Generation of a Turbulent Vortex Ring | 2005 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: In the present study, Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of the fully compressible, three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations are used to generate an axisymmetric vortex ring to which three-dimensional stochastic disturbances are added. The radiated acoustic field is computed directly in the near field, and by solving the wave equation in a spherical coordinate system in the far field.At high Reynolds number, a vortex ring will undergo an instability to azimuthal waves. The instability produces higher azimuthal modes and induces nonlinear interaction between the modes, and will cause the vortex ring to break down and transition to turbulence. The early stages of the simulation agree well with the linear instability theory. Nonlinear stage of instability, transition, formation of axial flow and streamwise vorticity are analyzed and compared with experimental results. After turbulent transition, the evolution of statistical quantities becomes independent of viscosity and the initial geometry, and the flow become self-similar. The temporal evolution of quantities including total circulation, axial velocity profile, vortex ring displacement and vorticity profile agrees well with the self-similarity law. Turbulent energy spectrum, Reynolds stresses and turbulence production are also presented. The unsteady vorticity field generates acoustic waves with higher azimuthal modes, each mode with a distinctive spectrum and directivity. The ensemble averaged peak frequency, bandwidth, and the sound pressure level agrees qualitatively with reported experimental results. The directivity of each azimuthal mode is compared with predictions of vortex sound theory. The sound generation consists of three stages. The first is a deterministic stage when linear instability waves emerge and grow and generate relatively weak sound. The second stage is nonlinear interaction and vortex breakdown; at this stage the sound pressure level reaches a peak value. The third stage is the turbulent asymptotic decay of the acoustic field. Based on the self-similar decay of the turbulent near field, the self-similar decay of the sound field is investigated. Connection between the acoustic field and the vortex ring oscillations is also studied with vortex sound theory. Finally, we note some similarities between the sound radiated by a train of de-correlated vortex rings and turbulent jet noise. The sound pressure level, spectrum, and directivity of the train of vortex rings is similar to the sound field from a jet with similar Reynolds number and Mach number. |

Abstract: We review artificial boundary conditions (BCs) for simulation of inflow, outflow, and far-field (radiation) problems, with an emphasis on techniques suitable for compressible turbulent shear flows. BCs based on linearization near the boundary are usually appropriate for inflow and radiation problems. A variety of accurate techniques have been developed for this case, but some robustness and implementation issues remain. At an outflow boundary, the linearized BCs are usually not accurate enough. Various ad hoc models have been proposed for the nonlinear case, including absorbing layers and fringe methods. We discuss these techniques and suggest directions for future modeling efforts. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Computational approaches are being developed to study a range of problems in aeroacoustics. These aeroacoustic problems may be classified based on the physical processes responsible for the sound radiation, and range from linear problems of radiation, refraction, and scattering in known base flows or by solid bodies, to sound generation by turbulence. In this article, we focus mainly on the challenges and successes associated with numerically simulating sound generation by turbulent flows.We discuss a hierarchy of computational approaches that range from semi-empirical schemes that estimate the noise sources using mean-flow and turbulence statistics, to high-fidelity unsteady flow simulations that resolve the sound generation process by direct application of the fundamental conservation principles. We stress that high-fidelity methods such as Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) and Large Eddy Simulation (LES) have their merits in helping to unravel the flow physics and the mechanisms of sound generation. They also provide rich databases for modeling activities that will ultimately be needed to improve existing predictive capabilities. Spatial and temporal discretization schemes that are well-suited for aeroacoustic calculations are analyzed, including the effects of artificial dispersion and dissipation on uniform and nonuniform grids. We stress the importance of the resolving power of the discretization as well as computational efficiency of the overall scheme. Boundary conditions to treat the flow of disturbances in and out of the computational domain, as well as methods to mimic anechoic domain extension are discussed. Test cases on some benchmark problems are included to provide a realistic assessment of several boundary condition treatments. Finally, highlights of recent progress are given using selected model problems. These include subsonic cavity and jet noise. In the end, the current challenges in aeroacoustic modeling and in simulation algorithms are revisited with a look toward the future developments. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. |

Preston, A. | Modeling and computation of bubbly cavitating flow | 2004 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Two problems are considered in this thesis: the modeling of heat and mass diffusion effects on the dynamics of spherical bubbles, and the computation of unsteady, bubbly cavitating flows in nozzles. The goal of Part I is to develop a reduced-order model that is able to accurately and efficiently capture the effect of heat and mass transfer on the dynamics of bubbles. Detailed computations of forced and oscillating bubbles including heat and mass diffusion show that the assumptions of polytropic behavior, constant vapor pressure, and an effective liquid viscosity do not accurately account for diffusive damping and thus do not accurately capture bubble dynamics. While the full bubble computations are readily performed for single bubbles, they are too expensive to implement into continuum models of complex bubbly flows where the radial diffusion equations would have to be solved at each grid point. Therefore reduced-order models that accurately capture diffusive effects are needed.We first develop a full bubble computation, where the full set of radial conservation equations are solved in the bubble interior and surrounding liquid. This provides insight as to which equations, or terms in equations, may be able to be neglected while still accurately capturing the bubble dynamics. Motivated by results of the full computations, we use constant heat and mass transfer coefficients to model the transfer at the bubble wall. In the resulting reduced-order model the heat and mass diffusion equations are each replaced by a single ordinary differential equation. The model is therefore efficient enough to implement into continuum computations. Comparisons of the reduced-order model to the full computations over a wide range of parameters indicate agreement that is superior to existing models. In Part II we investigate the effects of unsteady bubble dynamics on cavitating flow through a converging-diverging nozzle. A continuum model that couples the Rayleigh-Plesset equation with the continuity and momentum equations is used to formulate unsteady, quasi-one-dimensional partial differential equations. Flow regimes studied include those where steady state solutions exist, and those where steady state solutions diverge at the so-called flashing instability. These latter flows consist of unsteady bubbly shock waves traveling downstream in the diverging section of the nozzle. An approximate analytical expression is developed to predict the critical back pressure for choked flow. The results agree with previous barotropic models for those flows where bubble dynamics are not important, but show that in many instances the neglect of bubble dynamics cannot be justified. Finally the computations show reasonable agreement with an experiment that measures the spatial variation of pressure, velocity and void fraction for steady shock free flows, and good agreement with an experiment that measures the throat pressure and shock position for flows with bubbly shocks. In the model, damping of the bubble radial motion is restricted to a simple "effective" viscosity to account for diffusive effects. However, many features of the nozzle flow are shown to be independent of the specific damping mechanism. This is confirmed by the implementation of the more sophisticated diffusive modeling developed in Part I. |

Abstract: We present a framework for applying the method of proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and Galerkin projection to compressible fluids. For incompressible flows, only the kinematic variables are important, and the techniques are well known. In a compressible flow, both the kinematic and thermodynamic variables are dynamically important, and must be included in the configuration space. We introduce an energy-based inner product which may be used to obtain POD modes for this configuration space. We then obtain an approximate version of the Navier-Stokes equations, valid for cold flows at moderate Mach number, and project these equations onto a POD basis. The resulting equations of motion are quadratic, and are much simpler than projections of the full compressible Navier-Stokes equations. (C) 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: We develop a reduced-order model for large-scale unsteadiness (vortex shedding) in a two-dimensional diffuser and use the model to show how periodic mass injection near the separation point reduces stagnation pressure loss. The model estimates the characteristic frequency of vortex shedding and stagnation pressure loss by accounting for the accumulated circulation due to the vorticity flux into the separated region. The stagnation pressure loss consists of two parts: a steady part associated with the time-averaged static pressure distribution on the wall, and an unsteady part caused by vortex shedding. To validate the model, we perform numerical simulations of compressible unsteady laminar diffuser flows in two dimensions. The model and simulation show good agreement as we vary the Mach number and the area ratio of the diffuser. To investigate the effects of periodic mass injection near the separation point, we also perform simulations over a range of the injection frequencies. Periodic mass injection causes vortices to be pinched off with a smaller size as observed in experiments. Consequently, their convective velocity is increased, absorption of circulation from the wall is enhanced, and the reattached point is shifted upstream. Thus, in accordance with the model, the stagnation pressure loss, particularly the unsteady part, is substantially reduced even though the separation point is nearly unchanged. This study helps explain experimental results of separation control using unsteady mass injection in diffusers and on airfoils. |

Tanguay, M. | Numerical Simulation and Analysis of Shockwave Lithotripsy | 2004 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Lithotripsy is at the forefront of treatment of kidney stones. By firing shock waves at the stone, it can be broken down into small fragments. Although the treatment is non-invasive, both short- and long-term side effects occur. In order to understand and rectify these shortcomings, lithotripsy has been the subject of ongoing research. Based on in vitro experiments, it has been ascertained that the cloud of cavitating bubble produced in the wake of the shock wave is a crucial element in the stone comminution process.Various solutions designed to maximize stone comminution and/or decrease tissue damage have been proposed over the years. However, the particulars of the comminution mechanism(s) are still undetermined. In this work, a numerical model of the two-phase flow inside an electrohydraulic lithotripter was used to provide additional insight in the behavior of the bubble cloud. The numerical model is based on an ensemble averaged two-phase flow model for a compressible liquid. The differential equations were discretized following the WENO shock capturing scheme in prolate spheroidal and cylindrical coordinate systems. The initial conditions for the flow field are estimated based on empirical observations and then validated by comparing the predicted pressure measurements and bubble cloud behavior against experimental values. In order to gain additional insight in the mechanism for stone comminution, a variety of relevant initial conditions were modeled. The following lithotripter configurations were analyzed: free-field, dual-pulse and single-pulse with an artificial stone at the focus. The impact of parameters such as the intensity of the initial shock wave and the pulse rate frequency (PRF) has been investigated. Based on an energy argument, conclusions regarding the effciency of stone comminution are presented. In addition, based on these conclusions, avenues for improvement of the numerical model are highlighted. |

Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Shock Wave Lithotripsy (SWL) is the use of shock waves to fragment kidney stones. We have undertaken a study of the physical mechanisms responsible for stone comminution and tissue injury in SWL. SWL was originally developed on the premise that stone fragmentation could be induced by a short duration, high amplitude positive pressure pulse. Even though the SWL waveform carries a prominent tensile component, it has long been thought that SW damage to stones could be explained entirely on the basis of mechanisms such as spallation, pressure gradients, and compressive fracture. We contend that not only is cavitation also involved in SWL, bubble activity plays a critical role in stone breakage and is a key mechanism in tissue damage. METHODS: Our evidence is based upon a series of experiments in which we have suppressed or minimized cavitation, and discovered that both stone comminution and tissue injury is similarly suppressed or minimized. Some examples of these experiments are (1) application of overpressure, (2) time reversal of acoustic waveform, (3) acoustically-transparent, cavitation-absorbing films, and (4) dual pulses. In addition, using passive and active ultrasound, we have observed the existence of cavitation, in vivo, and at the site of tissue injury. RESULTS: Numerical and experimental results showed mitigation of bubble collapse intensity by time-reversing the lithotripsy pulse and in vivo treatment showed a corresponding drop from 6.1% +/- 1.7% to 0.0% in the hemorrhagic lesion. The time-reversed wave did not break stones. Stone comminution and hemolysis were reduced to levels very near sham levels with the application of hydrostatic pressure greater than the near 10-MPa amplitude of the negative pressure of the lithotripter shock wave. A Mylar sheet 3-mm from the stone surface did not inhibit erosion and internal cracking, but a sheet in contact with the stone did. In water, mass lost from stones in a dual pulse lithotripter is 8 times greater than with a single lithotripter, but in glycerol, which reduces the pressures generated in bubble implosion, the enhancement is lost. CONCLUSION: This cavitation-inclusive mechanistic understanding of SWL is gaining acceptance and has had clinical impact. Treatment at slower SW rate gives cavitation bubble clusters time to dissolve between pulses and increases comminution. Some SWL centers now treat patients at slower SW rate to take advantage of this effect. An elegant cavitation-aware strategy to reduce renal trauma in SWL is being tested in experimental animals. Starting treatment at low amplitude causes vessels to constrict and this interferes with cavitation-mediated vascular injury. Acceptance of the role of cavitation in SWL is beginning to be embraced by the lithotripter industry, as new dual-pulse lithotripters-based on the concept of cavitation control- have now been introduced. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Background and Purpose: There is strong evidence that cavitation bubble activity contributes to stone breakage and that shockwave-bubble interactions are involved in the tissue trauma associated with shockwave lithotripsy. Cavitation control may thus be a way to improve lithotripsy.Materials and Methods: High-speed photography was used to analyze cavitation bubble activity at the surface of artificial and natural kidney stones during exposure to lithotripter shockwaves in vitro. Results: Numerous individual bubbles formed on the surfaces of stones, but these bubbles did not remain independent but rather combined to form clusters. Bubble clusters formed at the proximal and distal ends and at the sides of stones. Each cluster collapsed to a narrow point of impact. Collapse of the proximal cluster eroded the leading face of the stone, and the collapse of clusters at the sides of stones appeared to contribute to the growth of cracks. Collapse of the distal cluster caused minimal damage. Conclusion: Cavitation-mediated damage to stones is attributable, not to the action of solitary bubbles, but to the growth and collapse of bubble clusters. |

Suzuki, T. and Colonius, T. | Inverse-imaging method for detection of a vortex in a channel | 2003 | AIAA Journal Vol. 41(9), pp. 1743-1751 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A simple vortex-imaging algorithm using a least-square method is considered. The position and the circulation of a vortex convected in a channel are identified from the time history of pressure at a limited number of points on the wall. The capabilities of the algorithm are demonstrated using two-dimensional direct numerical simulations. A few observer points on one side of the wall are sufficient to detect the position and the circulation of a compact vortex to a reasonable degree of accuracy. An advanced algorithm can even detect two nearby vortices to the same degree of accuracy. Because the algorithm assumes a point vortex solution, the accuracy of the detection deteriorates as the vorticity distribution spreads. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A new buffer region (absorbing layer, sponge layer, fringe region) technique for computing compressible flows on unbounded domains is proposed. We exploit the connection between coordinate mapping from bounded to unbounded domains and filtering of the equations of motion in Fourier space in order to develop a model to damp flow disturbances (advective and acoustic) that propagate outside an arbitrarily defined near field. This effectively simulates a free-space boundary condition. Damping the solution in the far field is accomplished in a simple and effective way by applying a filter (similar to that used in large-eddy simulation) on a mesh in Fourier space, followed by a secondary filtering of the equations on the physical grid and implementation of a model for the unresolved scales. The final form of the buffer region is given in real space, independent of any discretization of the equations. Here we use a dealiased, Fourier spectral collocation method to demonstrate the efficacy of the buffer region for several model problems: acoustic wave propagation, convection of a finite-amplitude vortex, and a viscous starting jet in two dimensions. The results compare favorably to previous nonreflecting and absorbing boundary conditions. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science (USA). |

Abstract: We use POD/Galerkin projection to investigate and derive reduced-order models of the dynamics of compressible flows. We examine DNS data for two flows, a turbulent M=0.9 jet and self-sustained oscillations in the flow over an open cavity, and show how different choices of norm lead to different definitions of the energetic structures, and, for the cavity, to different reduced-order models of the dynamics. For the jet, we show that the near-field dynamics are fairly well represented by relatively few modes, but that key processes of interest, such a acoustic radiation, are not well captured by norms that are defined based on volume integrals of pressure and velocity. For the cavity flow, we demonstrate that vector-valued POD modes lead to reduced-order models that are much more effective (accurate and stable) than scalar-valued modes defined independently for different flow variables. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Vortex methods have become useful tools for the computation of incompressible fluid flow. In this work, a vortex particle method for the simulation of unsteady two-dimensional compressible flow is developed. By decomposing the velocity into irrotational and solenoidal parts, and using particles that are able to change volume and that carry vorticity, dilatation, enthalpy, entropy and density, the equations of motion are satisfied. Spatial derivatives are treated using the method of particle strength exchange with high-order-accurate, non-dissipative kernels. The new vortex method is applied to co-rotating and leapfrogging vortices in compressible flow, with the far acoustic field computed using a two-dimensional Kirchhoff surface. |

Abstract: A vortex particle method is developed for simulating two-dimensional, unsteady compressible (low. The method uses the Helmholtz decomposition of the velocity field to separately treat the irrotational and solenoidal portions of the Now, and the particles are allowed to change volume to conserve mass. In addition to having vorticity and dilatation properties, the particles also carry density, enthalpy, and entropy. The resulting evolution equations contain terms that are computed with techniques used in some incompressible methods. Truncation of unbounded domains via a nonreflecting boundary condition is also considered. The fast multipole method is adapted to compressible particles in order to make the method computationally efficient. The new method is applied to several problems, including sound generation by corotating vortices and generation of vorticity by baroclinic torque. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science (USA). |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: A unified approach to approximating spatial derivatives in particle methods using integral operators is presented. The approach is an extension of particle strength exchange, originally developed for treating the Laplacian in advection-diffusion problems. Kernels of high order of accuracy are constructed that can be used to approximate derivatives of any degree. A new treatment for computing derivatives near the edge of particle coverage is introduced, using "one-sided" integrals that only look for information where it is available. The use of these integral approximations in wave propagation applications is considered and their error is analyzed in this context using Fourier methods. Finally, simple tests are performed to demonstrate the characteristics of the treatment, including an assessment of the effects of particle dispersion, and their results are discussed.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Mach wave radiation from supersonic jets is revisited to better quantify the extent to which linearized equations represent the details of the actual mechanism. To this end, we solve the linearized Navier-Stokes equations (LNS) with precisely the same mean flow and inflow disturbances as a previous direct numerical simulation (DNS) of a perfectly expanded turbulent M=1.92 jet [Freund , AIAA J. 38, 2023 (2000)]. We restrict our attention to the first two azimuthal modes, n=0 and n=1, which constitute most of the acoustic field. The direction of peak radiation and the peak Strouhal number matches the DNS reasonably well, which is in accord with previous experimental justification of the linear theory. However, it is found that the sound pressure level predicted by LNS is significantly lower than that from DNS. In order to investigate the discrepancy, individual frequency components of the solution are examined. These confirm that near the peak Strouhal number, particularly for the first helical mode n=1, the amplification of disturbances in the LNS closely matches the DNS. However, away from the peak frequency (and generally for the azimuthal mode n=0), modes in the LNS are damped while those in the DNS grow at rates comparable to those at the peak Strouhal number.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The effects of unsteady bubble dynamics on cavitating flow through a converging-diverging nozzle are investigated numerically. A continuum model that couples the Rayleigh-Plesset equation with the continuity and momentum equations is used to formulate unsteady, quasi-one-dimensional partial differential equations. Flow regimes studied include those where steady-state solutions exist, and those where steady-state solutions diverge at the so-called flashing instability. These latter flows consist of unsteady bubbly shock waves traveling downstream in the diverging section of the nozzle. An approximate analytical expression is developed to predict the critical backpressure for choked flow. The results agree with previous barotropic models for those flows where bubble dynamics are not important, but show that in many instances the neglect of bubble dynamics cannot be justified. Finally the computations show reasonable agreement with an experiment that measures the spatial variation of pressure, velocity and void fraction for steady shockfree flows, and good agreement with an experiment that measures the throat pressure and shock position for flows with bubbly shocks. In the model, damping of the bubble radial motion is restricted to a simple "effective" viscosity, but many features of the flow are shown to be independent of the specific damping mechanism.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Numerical simulations are used to investigate the resonant instabilities in two-dimensional flow past an open cavity. The compressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved directly (no turbulence model) for cavities with laminar boundary layers upstream. The computational domain is large enough to directly resolve a portion of the radiated acoustic field, which is shown to be in good visual agreement with schlieren photographs from experiments at several different Mach numbers. The results show a transition from a shear-layer mode, primarily for shorter cavities and lower Mach numbers, to a wake mode for longer cavities and higher Mach numbers. The shear-layer mode is characterized well by the acoustic feedback process described by Rossiter (1964), and disturbances in the shear layer compare well with predictions based on linear stability analysis of the Kelvin-Helmholtz mode. The wake mode is characterized instead by a large-scale vortex shedding with Strouhal number independent of Mach number. The wake mode oscillation is similar in many ways to that reported by Gharib & Roshko (1987) for incompressible flow with a laminar upstream boundary layer. Transition to wake mode occurs as the length and/or depth of the cavity becomes large compared to the upstream boundary-layer thickness, or as the Mach and/or Reynolds numbers are raised. Under these conditions, it is shown that the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability grows to sufficient strength that a strong recirculating flow is induced in the cavity. The resulting mean flow is similar to wake profiles that are absolutely unstable, and absolute instability may provide an explanation of the hydrodynamic feedback mechanism that leads to wake mode. Predictive criteria for the onset of shear-layer oscillations (from steady flow) and for the transition to wake mode are developed based on linear theory for amplification rates in the shear layer, and a simple model for the acoustic efficiency of edge scattering. |

inproceedings | DOI |

Abstract: Direct numerical simulations of turbulent flows and their radiated acoustic fields offer a detailed description of the acoustic sources at low Reynolds number. High Reynolds number jets will remain inaccessible to direct computation for many years to come and there is thus a great need for good models of the acoustic sources. The low Reynolds number simulations can provide insight and data for such source modeling efforts. In this brief survey of research in this area issues that were anticipated in the research of Professor David Crighton for whom this session has been dedicated are discussed. These include the technical challenges that must be overcome in order to accurately compute aeroacoustic flows the modeling of acoustic sources in jets and mixing layers as wave packets and the scattering and refraction of sound by turbulence. |

Eldredge, J. | A dilating vortex particle method for compressible flow with application to aeroacoustics | 2001 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: Vortex methods have become useful tools for the computation of incompressible fluid flow. In the present work, a vortex particle method for the simulation of unsteady two-dimensional compressible flow is developed and applied to several problems. The method is the first Langrangian simulation method for the full compressible Navier-Stokes equations. By decomposing the velocity into irrotational and solenoidal parts, and using particles that are able to change volume and that carry vorticity, dilation, enthalpy, entropy, and density, the equations of motion are satisfied. A general deterministic treatment of spatial derivatives in particle methods is developed by extending the method of particle strength exchange through the construction of higher-order-accurate, non-dissipative kernels for use in approximating arbitrary differential operators. The application of this technique to wave propagation problems is thoroughly explored. A one-sided operator is developed for approximating derivatives near the periphery of particle coverage; the operator is used to enforce a non-reflecting boundary condition for the absorption of acoustic waves at this periphery. Remeshing of the particles and the smooth interpolation of their strengths are addressed, and a criterion for the frequency of remeshing is developed on the principle axes of the rate-of-strain tensor. The fast multipole method for the fast summation of the velocity field is adapted for use with compressible particles. The new vortex method is applied to co-rotating and leapfrogging vortices in compressible flow, with the acoustic field computed using a two-dimensional Kirchoff surface, and the results agree will with those of previous work or analytical prediction. The method is also applied to the baroclinic generation of vorticity, and to the steepening of waves in the one-dimensional Burgers? equation, with favorable results in both case |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Numerical simulations are used to study the formation of vortex rings that are generated by applying a non-conservative force of long duration, simulating experimental vortex ring generation with large stroke ratio. For sufficiently long-duration forces, we investigate the extent to which properties of the leading vortex ring are invariant to the force distribution. The results confirm the existence of a universal 'formation number' defined by Gharib, Rambod & Shariff (1998), beyond which the leading vortex ring is separated from a trailing jet. We find that the formation process is governed by two non-dimensional parameters that are formed with three integrals of the motion (energy, circulation, and impulse) and the translation velocity of the leading vortex ring. Limiting values of the normalized energy and circulation of the leading vortex ring are found to be around 0.3 and 2.0, respectively, in agreement with the predictions of Mohseni & Gharib (1998). It is shown that under this normalization smaller variations in the circulation of the leading vortex ring are obtained than by scaling the circulation with parameters associated with the forcing. We show that by varying the spatial extent of the forcing or the forcing amplitude during the formation process, thicker rings with larger normalized circulation can be generated. Finally, the normalized energy and circulation of the leading vortex rings compare well with the same properties for vortices in the Norbury family with the same mean core radius. |

Rowley, C. | Modeling, simulation, and control of cavity flow oscillations | 2001 | School: California Institute of Technology |
phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: This thesis involves the modeling of self-sustained oscillations in the flow past a rectangular cavity. The emphasis is on developing low-dimensional models that are suitable for analysis using tools from dynamical systems and control theory. Two-dimensional direct numerical simulations are performed, and indicate the presence of a ?wake mode,? which has been observed previously in experiments, but which is much less well understood than the ?shear-layer mode? usually observed. We characterize the flow in both shear-layer mode and wake mode, and provide a criterion for predicting the onset of wake mode, as a function of the various geometrical and flow-related parameters. We focus on the modeling of shear-layer mode, and employ two distinct modeling approaches: first, we use the method of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and Galerkin projection to reduce the Navier-Stokes equations to a lowdimensional system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). We extend the method to compressible flows, using approximations that are valid for cold flows at moderate Mach number. In a compressible flow, both the kinematic and thermodynamic variables contribute to the total energy, and an inner product is introduced which respects this, and allows one to use vector-valued POD modes for the Galerkin projection. We obtain models in the form of ODEs with between 2 and 60 states, and compare models based on scalar-valued and vector-valued POD modes. All of the models work well for short times (a few periods of oscillation), but the models based on scalar-valued modes deviate for longer times, while in general the models based on vector-valued modes retain qualitatively correct dynamical behavior. In the second modeling approach, we model the underlying physical mechanisms separately (shear-layer amplification, acoustic scattering, acoustic propagation), and obtain linear models that are suitable for control design and analysis. We design a controller which stabilizes the model, and implement a similar control law on an experiment, demonstrating significant reduction in the amplitude of the oscillations, but revealing some limitations of feedback control. |

Abstract: The bubbly cavitating flow generated by a lithotriptor is computed using an ensemble averaged two-phase .ow model. The time-dependent, compressible .ow computation is divided into two separate calculations: the refocusing of a spherical pulse by an ellipsoidal re.ector, and the evolution of the steepening wave including the cavitating bubble cloud it generates. The .rst computation is single phase and is done in prolate spheroidal coordinates in order to have the surface of the ellipsoidal re.ector aligned with the computation grid. The output of this simulation is then fed to the two-phase cylindrical coordinates domain. Preliminary results and qualitative comparison to experimental observation are presented. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Bubbly cavitating flow generated by the normal oscillation of a wall bounding a semi-infinite domain of fluid is computed using a continuum two-phase flow model. Bubble dynamics are computed, on the microscale, using the Rayleigh-Plesset equation. A Lagrangian finite volume scheme and implicit adaptive time marching are employed to accurately resolve bubbly shock waves and other steep gradients in the flow. The one-dimensional, unsteady computations show that when the wall oscillation frequency is much smaller than the bubble natural frequency, the power radiated away from the wall is limited by an acoustic saturation effect (the radiated power becomes independent of the amplitude of vibration), which is similar to that found in a pure gas. That is, for large enough vibration amplitude, nonlinear steepening of the generated waves leads to shocking of the wave train, and the dissipation associated with the jump conditions across each shock limits the radiated power. In the model, damping of the bubble volume oscillations is restricted to a simple "effective" viscosity. For wall oscillation frequency less than the bubble natural frequency, the saturation amplitude of the radiated field is nearly independent of any specific damping mechanism. Finally, implications for noise radiation from cavitating flows are discussed. (C) 2000 American Institute of Physics. [S1070-6631(00)00511-0]. |

phdthesis | URL |

Abstract: In this thesis two distinct features of coherent structures are investigated. In Part I a model for the pinch-off process in vortex ring formation is developed. The predicted nondimensional stroke length L/D (referred to as "formation number") satisfactorily matches experimental observations. The model introduces two nondimensional parameters that govern the limiting value of the formation number: a nondimensional energy and circulation, E(nd) and \Gamma(nd), respectively. The predicted value of E(nd) also matches well with the experimental data. The limiting value for the new nondimensional circulation is predicted to be in the range 1.77 ≲ \Gamma(nd) ≲ 2.07. We perform detailed computations of vortex ring formation by nonconservative forcing. The validity of the assumptions in our model is verified in these computations. Some techniques for generating fat rings are successfully investigated, resulting in generation of vortex rings with Hill's like properties. We consider thermodynamics of the vorticity density field (w/r), and we develop a statistical equilibrium theory for axisymmetric flows. It is shown that the statistical equilibrium of an axisymmetric flow is the state that maximizes an entropy functional constrained to the invariants of motion. Furthermore, it is shown that the final equilibrium state satisfies a variational principle similar to Kelvin's variational principle. In Part II Mach wave radiation mechanisms in a fully expanded supersonic jet is studied. We compare a direct numerical simulation (DNS) of a 1.92 Mach number jet with a linearized Navier-Stokes (LNS) simulation. The numerical integration technique, inflow boundary conditions, and grid distributions are the same in both simulations. We found that the generated noise in the DNS calculation is dominated by the first two azimuthal modes, and contributions from all other azimuthal modes were limited to less than 1.5 dB in the acoustic field. The total directivity of the sound field in the LNS matches reasonably well with the sound field of the DNS data. At the peak Strouhal frequency, particularly for the azimuthal mode n = 1, the amplification of flow variables in the LNS closely matches that of the DNS data. However, for frequencies away from the peak Strouhal number the DNS data shows amplification rates comparable to those of the peak Strouhal number, while in the LNS data any disturbances away from the peak Strouhal number are highly damped. These extra noise sources in the DNS data have the characteristics of a nonlinear interaction among various modes. The noise generated by the first two modes in the linearized computation is substantially weaker than in the DNS. For example, in the near acoustic field, at a distance of 6 jet diameters from the jet centerline, the sound pressure level in the linearized computation is as much as 8 db smaller than the DNS results. We observed that the maximum amplification rate for the DNS data occurs at an axial location further downstream than for the LNS data, which corresponds to regions around and beyond the end of the potential core. Our results indicate that the missing sound generation mechanisms in the LNS computation at the frequencies considered in this study can be attributed to the non-linear sound generation mechanisms, that are not captured in linear theories. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Many compressible flow and aeroacoustic computations rely on accurate nonreflecting or radiation boundary conditions. When the equations and boundary conditions are discretized using a finite-difference scheme, the dispersive nature of the discretized equations can lead to spurious numerical reflections not seen in the continuous boundary value problem. Here we construct discretely nonreflecting boundary conditions, which account for the particular finite-difference scheme used, and are designed to minimize these spurious numerical reflections. Stable boundary conditions that are local and nonreflecting to arbitrarily high order of accuracy are obtained, and test cases are presented for the linearized Euler equations. For the cases presented. reflections for a pressure pulse leaving the boundary are reduced by up to two orders of magnitude over typical ad hoc closures, and for a vorticity pulse, reflections are reduced by up to four orders of magnitude.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Gradient elution, capillary liquid chromatography mass spectrometry was performed with linear, static gradients constructed by laminar flowing ten, 1.5 mu L volume steps of decreasing organic concentration into tubing of small internal diameter. Sample loading, gradient formation, and sample elution were accomplished entirely by means of a commercially available micro-autosampler and single-syringe drive pump. The procedure was simple, fast, stable, and reproducible. Essentially linear gradients were produced without the use of additional valves, mixers, pumps or software. It took less than 10 minutes to form a gradient and less than 30 minutes to construct the set of individual buffer vials. The gradients were shown to be stable to storage. One hour after forming, peak retention times were reproduced to +/-0.5%. Long-term retention time reproducibility was found to vary by +/-2%, Chromatographic resolution was comparable or superior to that obtained by gradient elution with conventional dynamic mixing and split how,The procedure was adapted with a 'peak parking' method which extended the time for generating peptide fragmentation data up to 10 minutes per peptide with the triple quadruple mass spectrometer, Using this technique, collision data were collected at the 25 femtomole level on nine of ten tryptic peptides in a single run.

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Numerical simulations have been performed to study the stability of heated incompressible Taylor-Couette flow for a radius ratio of 0.7 and a Prandtl number of 0.7, As Gr is increased, the Taylor cell that has the same direction of circulation as the natural convection current increases in size and the counterrotating cell becomes smaller. The flow remains axisymmetric and the average heat transfer decreases with the increase in Gr. When the cylinder is impulsively heated, the counterrotating cell vanishes and n = 1 spiral is formed for Gr = 1000. This transition marks an increase in the hear transfer due to an increase in the radial velocity component of the fluid. By slowly varying the Grashof number, the simulations demonstrate the existence of a hysteresis loop. Two different stable states with same heat transfer are found to exist at the same Grashof number. A time-delay analysis of the radial velocity and the local heat transfer coefficient time is performed to determine the dimension at two Grashof numbers. For a fixed Reynolds number of 100, the two-dimensional projection of the reconstructed attractor shows a limit cycle for Gr = -1700. The limit cycle behavior disappears at Gr = -2100, and the reconstructed attractor becomes irregular. The attractor dimension increases to about 3.2 from a value of I for the limit cycle case, similar values were determined for both the local hear transfer and the local radial velocity, indicating that the dynamics of the temperature variations can be inferred from that of the velocity variations. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Numerical simulations have been performed to study the effects of the gravitational and the centrifugal potentials on the stability of heated, incompressible Taylor-Couette flow. The flow is confined between two differentially heated, concentric cylinders, and the inner cylinder is allowed to rotate. The Navier-Stokes equations and the coupled energy equation are solved using a spectral method. To validate the code, comparisons are made with existing linear stability analysis and with experiments. The code is used to calculate the local and average heat transfer coefficients for a fixed Reynolds number (Re = 100) and a range of Grashof numbers. The investigation is primarily restricted to radius ratios 0.5 and 0.7 for fluids with Prandtl number of about 0.7. The variation of the local coefficients of heat transfer on the cylinder surface is investigated, and maps showing different stable states of the flow are presented. Results are also presented in terms of the equivalent conductivity, and show that heat transfer decreases with Grashof number in axisymmetric Taylor vortex flow regime, and increases with Grashof number after the flow becomes nonaxisymmetric. |

Colonius, T. | Numerically nonreflecting boundary and interface conditions for compressible flow and aeroacoustic computations | 1997 | AIAA Journal Vol. 35(7), pp. 1126-1133 |
article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Accurate nonreflecting or radiation boundary conditions are important for effective computation of aeroacoustic and compressible flow problems. The performance of such boundary conditions is often degraded upon discretization of the equations with finite difference and time marching methods. In particular, poorly resolved, spurious sawtooth waves are generated at boundaries due to the dispersive nature of the finite difference approximation. These disturbances can lead to spurious self-sustained oscillations in the flow (self-forcing), poor convergence to steady state, and long time instability of the numerics. Exact discretely nonreflecting boundary closures (boundary conditions for a downwind artificial boundary and an upwind physical boundary) are derived by considering a one-dimensional hyperbolic equation discretized with finite difference schemes and Runge-Kutta time advancements. The current methodology leads to stable local finite difference-like boundary closures, which are nonreflecting to an essentially arbitrarily high order of accuracy. These conditions can also be applied at interfaces where there is a discontinuity in the wave speed (a shock) or where there is an abrupt change in the grid spacing. Compared to other boundary treatments, the present boundary and interface conditions can reduce spurious reflected energy in the computational domain by many orders of magnitude. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The sound generated by vortex pairing in a two-dimensional compressible mixing layer is investigated. Direct numerical simulations (DNS) of the Navier-Stokes equations are used to compute both the near-field region and a portion of the acoustic field. The acoustic analogy due to Lilley (1974) is also solved with acoustic sources determined from the near-field data of the DNS. It is shown that several commonly made simplifications to the acoustic sources can lead to erroneous predictions for the acoustic field, Predictions based on the quadrupole form of the source terms derived by Goldstein (1976a, 1984) are in excellent agreement with the acoustic field from the DNS. However, despite the low Mach number of the flow, the acoustic far field generated by the vortex pairings cannot be described by considering compact quadrupole sources. The acoustic sources have the form of modulated wave packets and the acoustic far field is described by a superdirective model (Crighton & Huerre 1990). The presence of flow-acoustic interactions in the computed source terms causes the acoustic field predicted by the acoustic analogy to be very sensitive to small changes in the description of the source. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The scattering of plane sound waves by a vortex is investigated by solving the compressible Navier-Stokes equations numerically, and analytically with asymptotic expansions. Numerical errors associated with discretization and boundary conditions are made small by using high-order-accurate spatial differentiation and time marching schemes along with accurate non-reflecting boundary conditions. The accuracy of computations of flow fields with acoustic waves of amplitude five orders of magnitude smaller than the hydrodynamic fluctuations is directly verified. The properties of the scattered field are examined in detail. The results reveal inadequacies in previous vortex scattering theories when the circulation of the vortex is non-zero and refraction by the slowly decaying vortex flow field is important. Approximate analytical solutions that account for the refraction effect are developed and found to be in good agreement with the computations and experiments. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: Accurate computation of the far-field sound along with the near-field source terms associated with a free shear flow requires that the Navier-Stokes equations be solved using accurate numerical differentiation and time-marching schemes, with nonreflecting boundary conditions. Nonreflecting boundary conditions have been developed for two-dimensional linearized Euler equations by Giles. These conditions are modified for use with nonlinear Navier-Stokes computations of open flow problems. At an outflow, vortical structures are found to produce large reflections due to nonlinear effects; these reflection errors cannot be improved by increasing the accuracy of the linear boundary conditions. An exit zone just upstream of an outflow where disturbances are significantly attenuated through grid stretching and filtering is developed for use with the nonreflecting boundary conditions; reflections from vortical structures are decreased by 3 orders of magnitude. The accuracy and stability of the boundary conditions are investigated in several model flows that include sound radiation by an energy source in a uniformly sheared viscous flow, the propagation of vortices in a uniform flow, and the spatial evolution of a compressible mixing layer. |

article | DOI URL |

Abstract: The effects of compressibility on free (unsteady) viscous heat-conducting vortices are investigated. Analytical solutions are found in the limit of large, but finite, Reynolds number, and small, but finite, Mach number. The analysis shows that the spreading of the vortex causes a radial flow. This flow is given by the solution of an ordinary differential equation (valid for any Mach number), which gives the dependence of the radial velocity on the tangential velocity, density, and temperature profiles of the vortex; estimates of the radial velocity found by solving this equation are found to be in good agreement with numerical solutions of the full equations. The experiments of Mandella (1987) also report a radial flow in the vortex, but their estimates are much larger than the analytical predictions, and it is found that the flow inferred from the experiments violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics for two-dimensional axisymmetric flow. It is speculated that three-dimensionality is the cause of this discrepancy. To obtain detailed analytical solutions, the equations for the viscous evolution are expanded in powers of Mach number, M. Solutions valid to O(M2), are discussed for vortices with finite circulation. Two specific initial conditions - vortices with initially uniform entropy and with initially uniform density - are analysed in detail. It is shown that swirling axisymmetric compressible flows generate negative radial velocities far from the vortex core owing to viscous effects, regardless of the initial distributions of vorticity, density and entropy. |
