Reducing Boiler Emissions Through Shape Optimization

In this work, a flexible framework for discrete adjoint-based reactive flow optimization in SU2 is presented. The implementation is based on a low-Mach number solver and a flamelet progress variable model for strongly cooled laminar premixed flames. Besides the combustion … Continue reading

Simulation of Fan Acoustics using LES on Overset Grids

Professor Kozo Fujii recently shared preliminary results of a large-eddy simulation of an axial fan that were computed on overset structured grids. Decomposition techniques were then used to compute the fan’s acoustic signature. A journal article and conference presentation are … Continue reading
