From 28th ~1st August, ASME – JSME – KSME Joint Fluids Engineering Conference 2019 (AJKFLUIDS2019) was held at San Francisco. Professor Yamamoto delivered a plenary lecture at AJKFLUIDS2019.
Multi-Physics CFD Simulation of Particle Deposition With a Hybrid Grid- and Particle-Based Method
Prof. Makoto Yamamoto
Particle deposition occurs in a jet engine, when a jet engine is operated in a particulate environment like volcanic ash clouds. The ingested ash is melted in a combustion chamber and becomes a small droplet because the temperature exceeds the melting point of ash. Since turbine components are colder than the droplet, some droplets adhere and accrete on the surfaces. The particle deposition does not only leads to deterioration of the turbine performance, but also shorten the life time of the turbine. Therefore, the prediction and understanding of the particle deposition phenomena are of importance from the engineering viewpoint. The objectives of the present study are to model the particle deposition phenomenon with a hybrid grid- and particle-based method, and to investigate the particle deposition around the leading edge of a modeled high-pressure turbine vane. The finite difference method was used as the grid-based method to simulate the flow field, the E-MPS method was employed as the particle-based method to simulate the solidification of droplets, and these two methods were effectively coupled. In the presentation, the detail of numerical procedures will be explained, and then some typical results will be introduced.
