교각이 물의 흐름 앞에 위치하면 소용돌이가 형성되고 그 활동으로 교각 주변의 하상 재료가 침식되고 세굴 구멍이 생성됩니다. 기초 깊이와 교각 말뚝이 충분하지 않으면 교량은 실패합니다.

말뚝 캡의 다른 레벨링에서 유동층의 총 전단 응력 연구는 말뚝 캡 위치가 동일할 때 가장 높은 전단 응력이 생성됨을 보여줍니다. 강바닥과 같은 수준; 강바닥보다 낮은 위치에 파일 캡을 설치하여 최대 전단 응력을 감소시킵니다. 

이 경우에 해당하기 때문일 수 있습니다. 교각 그룹 사이의 거리가 증가하고 두 번째 교각의 존재는 교각 그룹의 유량을 감소시키고 한 교각 그룹의 다른 교각은 흐름 패턴 형성에서 두 개의 독립적인 교각으로 작용합니다. 

파일 캡의 다른 레벨링에서 세굴의 최종 길이 방향 단면을 비교함으로써 세굴 깊이의 가장 큰 감소는 에어로포일 모양의 파일 캡에서 발생하며 더 날카로운 노즈와 더 나은 공기 역학적 모양을 가진 파일 캡이 제어하기에 좋은 옵션이라는 결론을 내렸습니다. 말굽 와류를 제거하고 경사 교각 그룹 주변의 세굴 깊이를 줄입니다.

When the bridge piers are located in front of the water flow, vortices are formed against it and due to their activity, the materials of the river bed are eroded around the bridge piers and the scouring hole is created. If the foundation depth and bridge pier piles are insufficient, the bridge will fail.The study of total shear stress in the flow bed at different leveling of the pile caps shows that the highest shear stress is created when the pile cap position is at the same level as the river bed; by installing the pile cap at a lower level than the river bed, the maximum shear stress decreases. This may be due to the fact that in this case, the distance between the pier group increases and the presence of the second pier decreases the flow rate in the pier group and different pier in the one pier group acts as the two independent piers in the formation of the flow pattern. By comparing the final longitudinal sections of the scouring at different leveling of the pile cap, it is concluded that the largest reduction in scouring depth occurs in aerofoil-shaped pile caps and pile caps with the sharper nose and better aerodynamic shapes are good options to control the horseshoe vortices and will reduce the scouring depth around the inclined pier group.

ABSTRACT

하천을 가로지르는 교각의 다른 형태는 하천의 유동에 큰 영향을 미치며, 교각의 형태 변화가 물의 유동 특성에 미치는 영향에 대한 연구는 교량 설계 및 하천 범람에 큰 가치가 있습니다.

유체 역학 모델은 하천 흐름 패턴의 변화를 효과적으로 시뮬레이션하고 예측할 수 있으므로 하천 관리에 대한 과학적 데이터 지원을 제공할 수 있습니다.

본 논문은 Mike21을 기반으로 유체역학 모델을 구축하고 이를 황하 하류의 하천 유체역학 수치해석에 적용하고, 타원 교각을 예로 들어 교각 형태 변화가 유속에 미치는 영향을 모사한다. 강의 수위와 흐름장. 결과는 하천의 흐름 특성에 대한 타원형 교각 형태의 영향이 중요하다는 것을 보여줍니다.

동일한 유량에서 최대 축 비율에서 교각의 혼잡 값은 최소 축 비율의 1.65배이며 축 비율이 클수록 혼잡이 심각합니다. 최대 축 비율에서 유속의 차이는 최소 축 비율의 2.33배에 달할 수 있습니다.

The different shapes of bridge piers across rivers have a great influence on the river water movement, and the study of the influence of pier morphology changes on the water movement characteristics is of great value for bridge design and river flooding. The hydrodynamic model can effectively simulate and predict the changes of river flow patterns, which can provide scientific data support for river management. This paper constructs a hydrodynamic model based on Mike21 and applies it to the numerical simulation of river hydrodynamics in the lower reaches of the Yellow River, taking elliptical piers as an example, and simulates the effect of the change of pier morphology on the flow velocity, water level and flow field of the river. The results show that the effect of elliptical pier morphology on the flow characteristics of the river channel is significant; under the same flow rate, the congestion value of the pier at the maximum axis ratio is 1.65 times of the minimum axis ratio, and the larger the axis ratio, the more serious the congestion; the difference in flow velocity at the maximum axis ratio can reach 2.33 times of the minimum axis ratio.

Performance assessment of OpenFOAM and FLOW-3D in the numerical modeling of a low Reynolds number hydraulic jump

낮은 레이놀즈 수 유압 점프의 수치 모델링에서 OpenFOAM 및 FLOW-3D의 성능 평가

Abstract

A comparative performance analysis of the CFD platforms OpenFOAM and FLOW-3D is presented, focusing on a 3D swirling turbulent flow: a steady hydraulic jump at low Reynolds number. Turbulence is treated using RANS approach RNG k-ε. A Volume Of Fluid (VOF) method is used to track the air–water interface, consequently aeration is modeled using an Eulerian–Eulerian approach. Structured meshes of cubic elements are used to discretize the channel geometry. The numerical model accuracy is assessed comparing representative hydraulic jump variables (sequent depth ratio, roller length, mean velocity profiles, velocity decay or free surface profile) to experimental data. The model results are also compared to previous studies to broaden the result validation. Both codes reproduced the phenomenon under study concurring with experimental data, although special care must be taken when swirling flows occur. Both models can be used to reproduce the hydraulic performance of energy dissipation structures at low Reynolds numbers.

CFD 플랫폼 OpenFOAM 및 FLOW-3D의 비교 성능 분석이 3D 소용돌이치는 난류인 낮은 레이놀즈 수에서 안정적인 유압 점프에 초점을 맞춰 제시됩니다. 난류는 RANS 접근법 RNG k-ε을 사용하여 처리됩니다.

VOF(Volume Of Fluid) 방법은 공기-물 계면을 추적하는 데 사용되며 결과적으로 Eulerian-Eulerian 접근 방식을 사용하여 폭기가 모델링됩니다. 입방체 요소의 구조화된 메쉬는 채널 형상을 이산화하는 데 사용됩니다. 수치 모델 정확도는 대표적인 유압 점프 변수(연속 깊이 비율, 롤러 길이, 평균 속도 프로파일, 속도 감쇠 또는 자유 표면 프로파일)를 실험 데이터와 비교하여 평가됩니다.

모델 결과는 또한 결과 검증을 확장하기 위해 이전 연구와 비교됩니다. 소용돌이 흐름이 발생할 때 특별한 주의가 필요하지만 두 코드 모두 실험 데이터와 일치하는 연구 중인 현상을 재현했습니다. 두 모델 모두 낮은 레이놀즈 수에서 에너지 소산 구조의 수리 성능을 재현하는 데 사용할 수 있습니다.

Abstract

The submerged hydraulic jump is a sudden change from the supercritical to subcritical flow, specified by strong turbulence, air entrainment and energy loss. Despite recent studies, hydraulic jump characteristics in smooth and rough beds, the turbulence, the mean velocity and the flow patterns in the cavity region of a submerged hydraulic jump in the rough beds, especially in the case of triangular macroroughnesses, are not completely understood. The objective of this paper was to numerically investigate via the FLOW-3D model the effects of triangular macroroughnesses on the characteristics of submerged jump, including the longitudinal profile of streamlines, flow patterns in the cavity region, horizontal velocity profiles, streamwise velocity distribution, thickness of the inner layer, bed shear stress coefficient, Turbulent Kinetic Energy (TKE) and energy loss, in different macroroughness arrangements and various inlet Froude numbers (1.7 < Fr1 < 9.3). To verify the accuracy and reliability of the present numerical simulations, literature experimental data were considered.

수중 유압 점프는 강한 난류, 공기 동반 및 에너지 손실로 지정된 초임계에서 아임계 흐름으로의 급격한 변화입니다. 최근 연구에도 불구하고, 특히 삼각형 거시적 거칠기의 경우, 평활 및 거친 베드에서의 수압 점프 특성, 거친 베드에서 잠긴 수압 점프의 공동 영역에서 난류, 평균 속도 및 유동 패턴이 완전히 이해되지 않았습니다.

이 논문의 목적은 유선의 종방향 프로파일, 캐비티 영역의 유동 패턴, 수평 속도 프로파일, 스트림 방향 속도 분포, 두께를 포함하여 서브머지드 점프의 특성에 대한 삼각형 거시 거칠기의 영향을 FLOW-3D 모델을 통해 수치적으로 조사하는 것이었습니다.

내부 층의 층 전단 응력 계수, 난류 운동 에너지(TKE) 및 에너지 손실, 다양한 거시 거칠기 배열 및 다양한 입구 Froude 수(1.7 < Fr1 < 9.3). 현재 수치 시뮬레이션의 정확성과 신뢰성을 검증하기 위해 문헌 실험 데이터를 고려했습니다.

 Introduction

격렬한 난류 혼합과 기포 동반이 있는 수압 점프는 초임계에서 아임계 흐름으로의 변화 과정으로 간주됩니다[1]. 자유 및 수중 유압 점프는 일반적으로 게이트, 배수로 및 둑과 같은 수력 구조 아래의 에너지 손실에 적합합니다. 매끄러운 베드에서 유압 점프의 특성은 널리 연구되었습니다[2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9].

베드의 거칠기 요소가 매끄러운 베드와 비교하여 수압 점프의 특성에 어떻게 영향을 미치는지 예측하기 위해 거시적 거칠기에 대한 자유 및 수중 수력 점프에 대해 여러 실험 및 수치 연구가 수행되었습니다. Ead와 Rajaratnam[10]은 사인파 거대 거칠기에 대한 수리학적 점프의 특성을 조사하고 무차원 분석을 통해 수면 프로파일과 배출을 정규화했습니다.

Tokyayet al. [11]은 두 사인 곡선 거대 거칠기에 대한 점프 길이 비율과 에너지 손실이 매끄러운 베드보다 각각 35% 더 작고 6% 더 높다는 것을 관찰했습니다. Abbaspur et al. [12]는 6개의 사인파형 거대 거칠기에 대한 수력학적 점프의 특성을 연구했습니다. 그 결과, 꼬리수심과 점프길이는 평상보다 낮았고 Froude 수는 점프길이에 큰 영향을 미쳤습니다.

Shafai-Bejestan과 Neisi[13]는 수압 점프에 대한 마름모꼴 거대 거칠기의 영향을 조사했습니다. 결과는 마름모꼴 거시 거칠기를 사용하면 매끄러운 침대와 비교하여 꼬리 수심과 점프 길이를 감소시키는 것으로 나타났습니다. Izadjoo와 Shafai-Bejestan[14]은 다양한 사다리꼴 거시 거칠기에 대한 수압 점프를 연구했습니다.

그들은 전단응력계수가 평활층보다 10배 이상 크고 점프길이가 50% 감소하는 것을 관찰하였습니다. Nikmehr과 Aminpour[15]는 Flow-3D 모델 버전 11.2[16]를 사용하여 사다리꼴 블록이 있는 거시적 거칠기에 대한 수력학적 점프의 특성을 조사했습니다. 결과는 거시 거칠기의 높이와 거리가 증가할수록 전단 응력 계수뿐만 아니라 베드 근처에서 속도가 감소하는 것으로 나타났습니다.

Ghaderi et al. [17]은 다양한 형태의 거시 거칠기(삼각형, 정사각형 및 반 타원형)에 대한 자유 및 수중 수력 점프 특성을 연구했습니다. 결과는 Froude 수의 증가에 따라 자유 및 수중 점프에서 전단 응력 계수, 에너지 손실, 수중 깊이, 미수 깊이 및 상대 점프 길이가 증가함을 나타냅니다.

자유 및 수중 점프에서 가장 높은 전단 응력과 에너지 손실은 삼각형의 거시 거칠기가 존재할 때 발생했습니다. Elsebaie와 Shabayek[18]은 5가지 형태의 거시적 거칠기(삼각형, 사다리꼴, 2개의 측면 경사 및 직사각형이 있는 정현파)에 대한 수력학적 점프의 특성을 연구했습니다. 결과는 모든 거시적 거칠기에 대한 에너지 손실이 매끄러운 베드에서보다 15배 이상이라는 것을 보여주었습니다.

Samadi-Boroujeni et al. [19]는 다양한 각도의 6개의 삼각형 거시 거칠기에 대한 수력 점프를 조사한 결과 삼각형 거시 거칠기가 평활 베드에 비해 점프 길이를 줄이고 에너지 손실과 베드 전단 응력 계수를 증가시키는 것으로 나타났습니다.

Ahmed et al. [20]은 매끄러운 베드와 삼각형 거시 거칠기에서 수중 수력 점프 특성을 조사했습니다. 결과는 부드러운 침대와 비교할 때 잠긴 깊이와 점프 길이가 감소했다고 밝혔습니다. 표 1은 다른 연구자들이 제시한 과거의 유압 점프에 대한 실험 및 수치 연구의 세부 사항을 나열합니다.

이전에 논의된 조사의 주요 부분은 실험실 접근 방식을 기반으로 하며 사인파, 마름모꼴, 사다리꼴, 정사각형, 직사각형 및 삼각형 매크로 거칠기가 공액 깊이, 잠긴 깊이, 점프 길이, 에너지 손실과 같은 일부 자유 및 수중 유압 점프 특성에 어떻게 영향을 미치는지 조사합니다.

베드 및 전단 응력 계수. 더욱이, 저자[17]에 의해 다양한 형태의 거시적 거칠기에 대한 수력학적 점프에 대한 이전 발표된 논문을 참조하면, 삼각형의 거대조도는 가장 높은 층 전단 응력 계수 및 에너지 손실을 가지며 또한 가장 낮은 잠긴 깊이, tailwater를 갖는 것으로 관찰되었습니다.

다른 거친 모양, 즉 정사각형 및 반 타원형과 부드러운 침대에 비해 깊이와 점프 길이. 따라서 본 논문에서는 삼각형 매크로 거칠기를 사용하여(일정한 거칠기 높이가 T = 4cm이고 삼각형 거칠기의 거리가 I = 4, 8, 12, 16 및 20cm인 다른 T/I 비율에 대해), 특정 캐비티 영역의 유동 패턴, 난류 운동 에너지(TKE) 및 흐름 방향 속도 분포와 같은 연구가 필요합니다.

CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) 방법은 자유 및 수중 유압 점프[21]와 같은 복잡한 흐름의 모델링 프로세스를 수행하는 중요한 도구로 등장하며 수중 유압 점프의 특성은 CFD 시뮬레이션을 사용하여 정확하게 예측할 수 있습니다 [22,23 ].

본 논문은 초기에 수중 유압 점프의 주요 특성, 수치 모델에 대한 입력 매개변수 및 Ahmed et al.의 참조 실험 조사를 제시합니다. [20], 검증 목적으로 보고되었습니다. 또한, 본 연구에서는 유선의 종방향 프로파일, 캐비티 영역의 유동 패턴, 수평 속도 프로파일, 내부 층의 두께, 베드 전단 응력 계수, TKE 및 에너지 손실과 같은 특성을 조사할 것입니다.

Conclusions

  • 본 논문에서는 유선의 종방향 프로파일, 공동 영역의 유동 패턴, 수평 속도 프로파일, 스트림 방향 속도 분포, 내부 층의 두께, 베드 전단 응력 계수, 난류 운동 에너지(TKE)를 포함하는 수중 유압 점프의 특성을 제시하고 논의했습니다. ) 및 삼각형 거시적 거칠기에 대한 에너지 손실. 이러한 특성은 FLOW-3D® 모델을 사용하여 수치적으로 조사되었습니다. 자유 표면을 시뮬레이션하기 위한 VOF(Volume of Fluid) 방법과 난류 RNG k-ε 모델이 구현됩니다. 본 모델을 검증하기 위해 평활층과 삼각형 거시 거칠기에 대해 수치 시뮬레이션과 실험 결과를 비교했습니다. 본 연구의 다음과 같은 결과를 도출할 수 있다.
  • 개발 및 개발 지역의 삼각형 거시 거칠기의 흐름 패턴은 수중 유압 점프 조건의 매끄러운 바닥과 비교하여 더 작은 영역에서 동일합니다. 삼각형의 거대 거칠기는 거대 거칠기 사이의 공동 영역에서 또 다른 시계 방향 와류의 형성으로 이어집니다.
  • T/I = 1, 0.5 및 0.33과 같은 거리에 대해 속도 벡터 분포는 캐비티 영역에서 시계 방향 소용돌이를 표시하며, 여기서 속도의 크기는 평균 유속보다 훨씬 작습니다. 삼각형 거대 거칠기(T/I = 0.25 및 0.2) 사이의 거리를 늘리면 캐비티 영역에 크기가 다른 두 개의 소용돌이가 형성됩니다.
  • 삼각형 거시조도 사이의 거리가 충분히 길면 흐름이 다음 조도에 도달할 때까지 속도 분포가 회복됩니다. 그러나 짧은 거리에서 흐름은 속도 분포의 적절한 회복 없이 다음 거칠기에 도달합니다. 따라서 거시 거칠기 사이의 거리가 감소함에 따라 마찰 계수의 증가율이 감소합니다.
  • 삼각형의 거시적 거칠기에서, 잠수 점프의 지정된 섹션에서 최대 속도는 자유 점프보다 높은 값으로 이어집니다. 또한, 수중 점프에서 두 가지 유형의 베드(부드러움 및 거친 베드)에 대해 깊이 및 와류 증가로 인해 베드로부터의 최대 속도 거리는 감소합니다. 잠수 점프에서 경계층 두께는 자유 점프보다 얇습니다.
  • 매끄러운 베드의 난류 영역은 게이트로부터의 거리에 따라 생성되고 자유 표면 롤러 영역 근처에서 발생하는 반면, 거시적 거칠기에서는 난류가 게이트 근처에서 시작되어 더 큰 강도와 제한된 스위프 영역으로 시작됩니다. 이는 반시계 방향 순환의 결과입니다. 거시 거칠기 사이의 공간에서 자유 표면 롤러 및 시계 방향 와류.
  • 삼각 거시 거칠기에서 침지 점프의 베드 전단 응력 계수와 에너지 손실은 유입구 Froude 수의 증가에 따라 증가하는 매끄러운 베드에서 발견된 것보다 더 큽니다. T/I = 0.50 및 0.20에서 최고 및 최저 베드 전단 응력 계수 및 에너지 손실이 평활 베드에 비해 거칠기 요소의 거리가 증가함에 따라 발생합니다.
  • 거의 거칠기 요소가 있는 삼각형 매크로 거칠기의 존재에 의해 주어지는 점프 길이와 잠긴 수심 및 꼬리 수심의 감소는 결과적으로 크기, 즉 길이 및 높이가 감소하는 정수조 설계에 사용될 수 있습니다.
  • 일반적으로 CFD 모델은 다양한 수력 조건 및 기하학적 배열을 고려하여 잠수 점프의 특성 예측을 시뮬레이션할 수 있습니다. 캐비티 영역의 흐름 패턴, 흐름 방향 및 수평 속도 분포, 베드 전단 응력 계수, TKE 및 유압 점프의 에너지 손실은 수치적 방법으로 시뮬레이션할 수 있습니다. 그러나 거시적 차원과 유동장 및 공동 유동의 변화에 ​​대한 다양한 배열에 대한 연구는 향후 과제로 남아 있다.

Abstract

The use of functionalized magnetic particles for the detection or separation of multiple chemicals and biomolecules from biofluids continues to attract significant attention. After their incubation with the targeted substances, the beads can be magnetically recovered to perform analysis or diagnostic tests. Particle recovery with permanent magnets in continuous-flow microdevices has gathered great attention in the last decade due to the multiple advantages of microfluidics. As such, great efforts have been made to determine the magnetic and fluidic conditions for achieving complete particle capture; however, less attention has been paid to the effect of the channel geometry on the system performance, although it is key for designing systems that simultaneously provide high particle recovery and flow rates. Herein, we address the optimization of Y-Y-shaped microchannels, where magnetic beads are separated from blood and collected into a buffer stream by applying an external magnetic field. The influence of several geometrical features (namely cross section shape, thickness, length, and volume) on both bead recovery and system throughput is studied. For that purpose, we employ an experimentally validated Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) numerical model that considers the dominant forces acting on the beads during separation. Our results indicate that rectangular, long devices display the best performance as they deliver high particle recovery and high throughput. Thus, this methodology could be applied to the rational design of lab-on-a-chip devices for any magnetically driven purification, enrichment or isolation.

Korea Abstract

생체 유체에서 여러 화학 물질과 생체 분자의 검출 또는 분리를위한 기능화 된 자성 입자의 사용은 계속해서 상당한 관심을 받고 있습니다. 표적 물질과 함께 배양 한 후 비드를 자기 적으로 회수하여 분석 또는 진단 테스트를 수행 할 수 있습니다. 연속 흐름 마이크로 장치에서 영구 자석을 사용한 입자 회수는 마이크로 유체의 여러 장점으로 인해 지난 10 년 동안 큰 관심을 모았습니다. 

따라서 완전한 입자 포획을 달성하기 위한 자기 및 유체 조건을 결정하기 위해 많은 노력을 기울였습니다. 그러나 높은 입자 회수율과 유속을 동시에 제공하는 시스템을 설계하는 데있어 핵심이기는 하지만 시스템 성능에 대한 채널 형상의 영향에 대해서는 덜주의를 기울였습니다. 

여기에서 우리는 자기 비드가 혈액에서 분리되고 외부 자기장을 적용하여 버퍼 스트림으로 수집되는 YY 모양의 마이크로 채널의 최적화를 다룹니다. 비드 회수 및 시스템 처리량에 대한 여러 기하학적 특징 (즉, 단면 형상, 두께, 길이 및 부피)의 영향을 연구합니다. 

이를 위해 분리 중에 비드에 작용하는 지배적인 힘을 고려하는 실험적으로 검증 된 CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) 수치 모델을 사용합니다. 우리의 결과는 직사각형의 긴 장치가 높은 입자 회수율과 높은 처리량을 제공하기 때문에 최고의 성능을 보여줍니다. 

따라서 이 방법론은 자기 구동 정제, 농축 또는 분리를 위한 랩온어 칩 장치의 합리적인 설계에 적용될 수 있습니다.

Abstract

이 연구에서는 비드 운동과 유체 흐름에 미치는 영향에 대한 자세한 분석을 제공하기 위해 연속 흐름 마이크로 채널 내부의 비드 자기 영동에 대한 수치 흐름 중심 연구를 보고합니다.

수치 모델은 Lagrangian 접근 방식을 포함하며 영구 자석에 의해 생성 된 자기장의 적용에 의해 혈액에서 비드 분리 및 유동 버퍼로의 수집을 예측합니다.

다음 시나리오가 모델링됩니다. (i) 운동량이 유체에서 점 입자로 처리되는 비드로 전달되는 단방향 커플 링, (ii) 비드가 점 입자로 처리되고 운동량이 다음으로부터 전달되는 양방향 결합 비드를 유체로 또는 그 반대로, (iii) 유체 변위에서 비드 체적의 영향을 고려한 양방향 커플 링.

결과는 세 가지 시나리오에서 비드 궤적에 약간의 차이가 있지만 특히 높은 자기력이 비드에 적용될 때 유동장에 상당한 변화가 있음을 나타냅니다.

따라서 높은 자기력을 사용할 때 비드 운동과 유동장의 체적 효과를 고려한 정확한 전체 유동 중심 모델을 해결해야 합니다. 그럼에도 불구하고 비드가 중간 또는 낮은 자기력을 받을 때 계산적으로 저렴한 모델을 안전하게 사용하여 자기 영동을 모델링 할 수 있습니다.

Simulation of Droplet Dynamics and Mixing in Microfluidic Devices using a VOF-Based Method

Abstract

This paper demonstrates that the Volume of Fluid (TruVOF) method in FLOW-3D (a general purpose CFD software) is an effective tool for studying droplet dynamics and mixing in microfluidic devices. The first example studied is a T-junction where flow patterns for both droplet generation and passive mixing are analyzed. The second example studied is a co-flowing device where the formation and breakup of bubbles is simulated. The effect of viscosity on bubble formation is also analyzed. For a T-junction the bubble size is corroborated with experimental data. Both the bubble size and frequency are studied and corroborated with experimental data for a co-flowing device. The third example studied is the electrowetting phenomenon observed in a small water droplet resting on a dielectric material. The steady-state contact angle is plotted against the voltage applied. The results are compared with both the Young-Lippmann curve and experimental results. 

이 논문은 FLOW-3D (범용 CFD 소프트웨어)의 유체 부피 (TruVOF) 방법이 미세 유체 장치에서 액적 역학 및 혼합을 연구하는데 효과적인 도구임을 보여줍니다.

연구된 첫 번째 예는 액적 생성 및 수동 혼합에 대한 흐름 패턴이 분석되는 T- 접합입니다. 연구된 두 번째 예는 기포의 형성 및 분해가 시뮬레이션 되는 동시 유동 장치입니다.

기포 형성에 대한 점도의 영향도 분석됩니다. T 접합의 경우 기포 크기는 실험 데이터로 확증됩니다. 기포 크기와 빈도 모두 공동 유동 장치에 대한 실험 데이터로 연구되고 확증됩니다.

연구된 세 번째 예는 유전 물질 위에 놓인 작은 물방울에서 관찰 된 전기 습윤 현상입니다. 정상 상태 접촉각은 적용된 전압에 대해 플롯됩니다. 결과는 Young-Lippmann 곡선 및 실험 결과와 비교됩니다.

Three-Dimensional Flow Analysis of a Thermosetting Compound during Mold Filling

Abstract

Thermosetting molding compounds are widely used for encapsulating semiconductor devices and electronic modules. In recent years, the number of electronic parts encapsulated in an electronic module has increased, in order to meet the requirements for high performance. As a result, the configuration of inserted parts during molding has become very complicated. Meanwhile, package thickness has been reduced in response to consumer demands for miniaturization. These trends have led to complicated flow patterns of molten compounds in a mold cavity, increasing the difficulty of predicting the occurrence of void formation or gold-wire deformation.

A method of three-dimensional (3-D) flow analysis of thermosetting compounds has been developed with the objective of minimizing the trial term before mass production and of enhancing the quality of molded products. A constitutive equation model was developed to describe isothermal viscosity changes as a function of time and temperature. This isothermal model was used for predicting non-isothermal viscosity changes. In addition, an empirical model was developed for calculating the amount of wire deformation as a function of viscosity, wire configuration, and other parameters. These models were integrated with FLOW-3D® software, which is used for multipurpose 3-D flow analysis.

The mold-filling dynamics of an epoxy compound were analyzed using the newly developed modeling software during transfer molding of an actual high performance electronic module. The changes in the 3-D distributions of parameters such as temperature, viscosity, velocity, and pressure were compared with the flow front patterns. The predicted results of cavity filling behavior corresponded well with actual short shot data. As well, the predicted amount of gold-wire deformation at each LSI chip with a substrate connection also corresponded well with observed data obtained by X-ray inspection of the molded product.

열경화성 몰딩 컴파운드는 반도체 장치 및 전자 모듈을 캡슐화하는 데 널리 사용됩니다. 최근에는 고성능에 대한 요구 사항을 충족시키기 위해 전자 모듈에 캡슐화되는 전자 부품의 수가 증가하고 있습니다.

그 결과 성형시 삽입 부품의 구성이 매우 복잡해졌습니다. 한편, 소비자의 소형화 요구에 부응하여 패키지 두께를 줄였다. 이러한 경향은 몰드 캐비티에서 용융된 화합물의 복잡한 흐름 패턴을 야기하여 보이드 형성 또는 금선 변형의 발생을 예측하기 어렵게합니다.

열경화성 화합물의 3 차원 (3-D) 유동 분석 방법은 대량 생산 전에 시험 기간을 최소화하고 성형 제품의 품질을 향상시킬 목적으로 개발되었습니다. 시간과 온도의 함수로서 등온 점도 변화를 설명하기 위해 구성 방정식 모델이 개발되었습니다. 이 등온 모델은 비등 온 점도 변화를 예측하는 데 사용되었습니다.

또한 점도, 와이어 구성 및 기타 매개 변수의 함수로 와이어 변형량을 계산하기위한 경험적 모델이 개발되었습니다. 이 모델은 다목적 3D 흐름 분석에 사용되는 FLOW-3D® 소프트웨어와 통합되었습니다.

실제 고성능 전자 모듈의 트랜스퍼 몰딩 과정에서 새로 개발 된 모델링 소프트웨어를 사용하여 에폭시 화합물의 몰드 충전 역학을 분석했습니다. 온도, 점도, 속도 및 압력과 같은 매개 변수의 3D 분포 변화를 유동 선단 패턴과 비교했습니다.

캐비티 충전 거동의 예측 결과는 실제 미 성형 데이터와 잘 일치했습니다. 또한, 기판 연결이 있는 각 LSI 칩에서 예상되는 금선 변형량은 성형품의 X-ray 검사에서 얻은 관찰 데이터와도 잘 일치했습니다.

Abstract

The discharge coefficient of morning glory spillway is decreased with eddies created by vortex at the inlet part of weir. However, a series of specific blades can reduce vortices which result in the spillway efficiency is increased. Hence, in this research numerical modeling of installed breaker blade on morning glory spillway was evaluated using Flow-3D model. To achieve these purposes, morning glory spillway was modeled without and with blades 3, 4 and 6 blades at 45 degree angle. To simulate the turbulence fluctuations, the modified k-e model (RNG k-e) was used and its results were compared to the experimental data. Results showed that by installing blades, the discharge coefficient increases up to 42 percent with 25 percent decreasing in the upstream water level. Moreover, among the three different arrangements of blades, the six-blade model was found to have more satisfactory results than other models. In comparison to control model, for H/D between 0 to 0.1 and 0.1 to 0.2 the discharge coefficient has been increased 40 and 57 percent for six-blade arrangement, respectively. 

모닝 글로리의 배출 계수는 위어 입구 부분의 와류에 의해 생성된 소용돌이로 감소합니다. 그러나 일련의 특정 블레이드는 와류를 줄여 배수로 효율성을 높일 수 있습니다. 따라서 본 연구에서는 모닝 글로리 여수로에 설치된 브레이커 블레이드의 수치 모델링을 Flow-3D 모델을 사용하여 평가했습니다. 이러한 목적을 달성하기 위해 45도 각도에서 블레이드 3, 4 및 6 블레이드 없이 모닝 글로리 여수로를 모델링 했습니다. 난류 변동을 시뮬레이션하기 위해 수정된 k-e 모델 (RNG k-e)을 사용하고 그 결과를 실험 데이터와 비교했습니다. 결과에 따르면 블레이드를 설치하면 상류 수위가 25 % 감소하면서 배출 계수가 42 %까지 증가합니다. 또한 3 개의 블레이드 배열 중 6 개 블레이드 모델이 다른 모델보다 더 만족스러운 결과를 나타냈다. 제어 모델에 비해 H / D가 0 ~ 0.1 및 0.1 ~ 0.2 인 경우 방전 계수가 6- 블레이드 배열에서 각각 40 % 및 57 % 증가했습니다.

Abstract

Due to the crisis of water scarcity, water resources management has become inevitable in Iran. Dam reservoirs are among the most important used water resources. Construction of a dam on a river reduces the flow velocity in the reservoir, finally resulting in the deposit of sediments in it. The depositing of sediments in the dam reservoir reduces its useful volume and disturbs the dam’s performance in terms of water storage. Therefore, solutions have always been proposed to manage and discharge sediments in the reservoir during the service period. In this regard, pressurized flushing is a common solution for eliminating sediments. In this method, by opening the bottom gates, the upstream water pressure discharges the sediments through the orifice. The volume of the exited sediments is a function of factors, such as gate diameter, sediments type and size, water height upstream the gate, and outflow discharge. Numerous studies have been conducted on the effect of the mentioned factors on the volume of sediments exited from an orifice. Shahmirzadi et al. (2010) experimentally evaluated the effect of the diameter of bottom dischargers on the dimensions of the flushing cone. Powell and Khan (2015) conducted tests to investigate the flow pattern upstream of a dam orifice under the fixed bed and equilibrium scour (mobile bed) conditions. Their results demonstrated that the velocity’s horizontal component was almost equal for both fixed and equilibrium scour conditions. The same conditions were also the case for the vertical component of the velocity.

물 부족의 위기로 이란에서는 수자원 관리가 불가피해졌습니다. 댐 저수지는 가장 중요한 사용 수자원 중 하나 입니다. 강에 댐을 건설하면 저수지의 유속이 감소하여 결국 침전물이 퇴적됩니다. 댐 저수지에 퇴적물이 쌓이면 유용한 부피가 줄어들고 물 저장 측면에서 댐의 성능이 저하됩니다.

따라서 서비스 기간 동안 저수지의 퇴적물을 관리하고 배출하는 솔루션이 항상 제안 되었습니다. 이와 관련하여 가압 플러싱은 침전물 제거를 위한 일반적인 솔루션입니다.

이 방법에서는 하단 게이트를 열면 상류 수압이 오리피스를 통해 퇴적물을 배출합니다. 배출된 퇴적물의 부피는 게이트 직경, 퇴적물의 유형 및 크기, 게이트 상류의 수위, 유출 배출과 같은 요인의 함수입니다.

오리피스에서 배출되는 퇴적물의 양에 대한 언급 된 요인의 영향에 대한 수많은 연구가 수행되었습니다. Shahmirzadi et al. (2010)은 바닥 배출기의 직경이 플러싱 콘의 치수에 미치는 영향을 실험적으로 평가했습니다.

Powell and Khan (2015)은 고정층 아래의 댐 오리피스 상류의 유동 패턴과 평형 수색 (이동 층) 조건을 조사하기 위해 테스트를 수행했습니다. 그들의 결과는 속도의 수평 성분이 고정 및 평형 수색 조건 모두에서 거의 동일하다는 것을 보여주었습니다. 속도의 수직 성분에 대해서도 동일한 조건이 적용되었습니다.

Abstract

Spillways are constructed to evacuate flood discharge safely so that a flood wave does not overtop the dam body. There are different types of spillways, with the ogee type being the conventional one. A stepped spillway is an example of a nonconventional spillway. The turbulent flow over a stepped spillway was studied numerically by using the Flow-3D package. Different fluid flow characteristics such as longitudinal flow velocity, temperature distribution, density and chemical concentration can be well simulated by Flow-3D. In this study, the influence of slope changes on flow characteristics such as air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressures distribution over a stepped spillway was modelled by Flow-3D. The results from the numerical model were compared with an experimental study done by others in the literature. Two models of a stepped spillway with different discharge for each model were simulated. The turbulent flow in the experimental model was simulated by the Renormalized Group (RNG) turbulence scheme in the numerical model. A good agreement was achieved between the numerical results and the observed ones, which are exhibited in terms of graphics and statistical tables.

배수로는 홍수가 댐 몸체 위로 넘치지 않도록 안전하게 홍수를 피할 수 있도록 건설되었습니다. 다른 유형의 배수로가 있으며, ogee 유형이 기존 유형입니다. 계단식 배수로는 비 전통적인 배수로의 예입니다. 계단식 배수로 위의 난류는 Flow-3D 패키지를 사용하여 수치적으로 연구되었습니다.

세로 유속, 온도 분포, 밀도 및 화학 농도와 같은 다양한 유체 흐름 특성은 Flow-3D로 잘 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 이 연구에서는 계단식 배수로에 대한 공기 혼입, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력 분포와 같은 유동 특성에 대한 경사 변화의 영향을 Flow-3D로 모델링 했습니다.

수치 모델의 결과는 문헌에서 다른 사람들이 수행한 실험 연구와 비교되었습니다. 각 모델에 대해 서로 다른 배출이 있는 계단식 배수로의 두 모델이 시뮬레이션되었습니다. 실험 모델의 난류 흐름은 수치 모델의 Renormalized Group (RNG) 난류 계획에 의해 시뮬레이션되었습니다. 수치 결과와 관찰 된 결과 사이에 좋은 일치가 이루어졌으며, 이는 그래픽 및 통계 테이블로 표시됩니다.

INTRODUCTION

댐 구조는 물 보호가 생활의 핵심이기 때문에 물을 저장하거나 물을 운반하는 전 세계에서 가장 중요한 프로젝트입니다. 그리고 여수로는 댐의 가장 중요한 부분 중 하나로 분류됩니다. 홍수로 인한 파괴 나 피해로부터 댐을 보호하기 위해 여수로가 건설됩니다.

수력 발전, 항해, 레크리에이션 및 어업의 중요성을 감안할 때 댐 건설 및 홍수 통제는 전 세계적으로 매우 중요한 문제로 간주 될 수 있습니다. 많은 유형의 배수로가 있지만 가장 일반적인 유형은 다음과 같습니다 : ogee 배수로, 자유 낙하 배수로, 사이펀 배수로, 슈트 배수로, 측면 채널 배수로, 터널 배수로, 샤프트 배수로 및 계단식 배수로.

그리고 모든 여수로는 입구 채널, 제어 구조, 배출 캐리어 및 출구 채널의 네 가지 필수 구성 요소로 구성됩니다. 특히 롤러 압축 콘크리트 (RCC) 댐 건설 기술과 더 쉽고 빠르며 저렴한 건설 기술로 분류 된 계단식 배수로 건설과 관련하여 최근 수십 년 동안 많은 계단식 배수로가 건설되었습니다 (Chanson 2002; Felder & Chanson 2011).

계단식 배수로 구조는 캐비테이션 위험을 감소시키는 에너지 소산 속도를 증가시킵니다 (Boes & Hager 2003b). 계단식 배수로는 다양한 조건에서 더 매력적으로 만드는 장점이 있습니다.

계단식 배수로의 흐름 거동은 일반적으로 낮잠, 천이 및 스키밍 흐름 체제의 세 가지 다른 영역으로 분류됩니다 (Chanson 2002). 유속이 낮을 때 nappe 흐름 체제가 발생하고 자유 낙하하는 낮잠의 시퀀스로 특징 지워지는 반면, 스키밍 흐름 체제에서는 물이 외부 계단 가장자리 위의 유사 바닥에서 일관된 흐름으로 계단 위로 흐릅니다.

또한 주요 흐름에서 3 차원 재순환 소용돌이가 발생한다는 것도 분명합니다 (예 : Chanson 2002; Gonzalez & Chanson 2008). 계단 가장자리 근처의 의사 바닥에서 흐름의 방향은 가상 바닥과 가상으로 정렬됩니다. Takahashi & Ohtsu (2012)에 따르면, 스키밍 흐름 체제에서 주어진 유속에 대해 흐름은 계단 가장자리 근처의 수평 계단면에 영향을 미치고 슈트 경사가 감소하면 충돌 영역의 면적이 증가합니다. 전이 흐름 체제는 나페 흐름과 스키밍 흐름 체제 사이에서 발생합니다. 계단식 배수로를 설계 할 때 스키밍 흐름 체계를 고려해야합니다 (예 : Chanson 1994, Matos 2000, Chanson 2002, Boes & Hager 2003a).

CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), 즉 수력 공학의 수치 모델은 일반적으로 물리적 모델에 소요되는 총 비용과 시간을 줄여줍니다. 따라서 수치 모델은 실험 모델보다 빠르고 저렴한 것으로 분류되며 동시에 하나 이상의 목적으로 사용될 수도 있습니다. 사용 가능한 많은 CFD 소프트웨어 패키지가 있지만 가장 널리 사용되는 것은 FLOW-3D입니다. 이 연구에서는 Flow 3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 유량이 서로 다른 두 모델에 대해 계단식 배수로에서 공기 농도, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력 분포를 시뮬레이션합니다.

Roshan et al. (2010)은 서로 다른 수의 계단 및 배출을 가진 계단식 배수로의 두 가지 물리적 모델에 대한 흐름 체제 및 에너지 소산 조사를 연구했습니다. 실험 모델의 기울기는 각각 19.2 %, 12 단계와 23 단계의 수입니다. 결과는 23 단계 물리적 모델에서 관찰 된 흐름 영역이 12 단계 모델보다 더 수용 가능한 것으로 간주되었음을 보여줍니다. 그러나 12 단계 모델의 에너지 손실은 23 단계 모델보다 더 많았습니다. 그리고 실험은 스키밍 흐름 체제에서 23 단계 모델의 에너지 소산이 12 단계 모델보다 약 12 ​​% 더 적다는 것을 관찰했습니다.

Ghaderi et al. (2020a)는 계단 크기와 유속이 다른 정련 매개 변수의 영향을 조사하기 위해 계단식 배수로에 대한 실험 연구를 수행했습니다. 그 결과, 흐름 체계가 냅페 흐름 체계에서 발생하는 최소 scouring 깊이와 같은 scouring 구멍 치수에 영향을 미친다는 것을 보여주었습니다. 또한 테일 워터 깊이와 계단 크기는 최대 scouring깊이에 대한 실제 매개 변수입니다. 테일 워터의 깊이를 6.31cm에서 8.54 및 11.82cm로 늘림으로써 수세 깊이가 각각 18.56 % 및 11.42 % 증가했습니다. 또한 이 증가하는 테일 워터 깊이는 scouring 길이를 각각 31.43 % 및 16.55 % 감소 시킵니다. 또한 유속을 높이면 Froude 수가 증가하고 흐름의 운동량이 증가하면 scouring이 촉진됩니다. 또한 결과는 중간의 scouring이 횡단면의 측벽보다 적다는 것을 나타냅니다. 계단식 배수로 하류의 최대 scouring 깊이를 예측 한 후 실험 결과와 비교하기 위한 실험식이 제안 되었습니다. 그리고 비교 결과 제안 된 공식은 각각 3.86 %와 9.31 %의 상대 오차와 최대 오차 내에서 scouring 깊이를 예측할 수 있음을 보여주었습니다.

Ghaderi et al. (2020b)는 사다리꼴 미로 모양 (TLS) 단계의 수치 조사를 했습니다. 결과는 이러한 유형의 배수로가 확대 비율 LT / Wt (LT는 총 가장자리 길이, Wt는 배수로의 폭)를 증가시키기 때문에 더 나은 성능을 갖는 것으로 관찰되었습니다. 또한 사다리꼴 미로 모양의 계단식 배수로는 더 큰 마찰 계수와 더 낮은 잔류 수두를 가지고 있습니다. 마찰 계수는 다양한 배율에 대해 0.79에서 1.33까지 다르며 평평한 계단식 배수로의 경우 대략 0.66과 같습니다. 또한 TLS 계단식 배수로에서 잔류 수두의 비율 (Hres / dc)은 약 2.89이고 평평한 계단식 배수로의 경우 약 4.32와 같습니다.

Shahheydari et al. (2015)는 Flow-3D 소프트웨어, RNG k-ε 모델 및 VOF (Volume of Fluid) 방법을 사용하여 배출 계수 및 에너지 소산과 같은 자유 표면 흐름의 프로파일을 연구하여 스키밍 흐름 체제에서 계단식 배수로에 대한 흐름을 조사했습니다. 실험 결과와 비교했습니다. 결과는 에너지 소산 율과 방전 계수율의 관계가 역으로 실험 모델의 결과와 잘 일치 함을 보여 주었다.

Mohammad Rezapour Tabari & Tavakoli (2016)는 계단 높이 (h), 계단 길이 (L), 계단 수 (Ns) 및 단위 폭의 방전 (q)과 같은 다양한 매개 변수가 계단식 에너지 ​​소산에 미치는 영향을 조사했습니다. 방수로. 그들은 해석에 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 계단식 배수로에서 에너지 손실과 임계 흐름 깊이 사이의 관계를 평가했습니다. 또한 유동 난류에 사용되는 방정식과 표준 k-ɛ 모델을 풀기 위해 유한 체적 방법을 적용했습니다. 결과에 따르면 스텝 수가 증가하고 유량 배출량이 증가하면 에너지 손실이 감소합니다. 얻은 결과를 다른 연구와 비교하고 경험적, 수학적 조사를 수행하여 결국 합격 가능한 결과를 얻었습니다.

METHODOLOGY

ListenReadSpeaker webReader: ListenFor all numerical models the basic principle is very similar: a set of partial differential equations (PDE) present the physical problems. The flow of fluids (gas and liquid) are governed by the conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy. For Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), the PDE system is substituted by a set of algebraic equations which can be worked out by using numerical methods (Versteeg & Malalasekera 2007). Flow-3D uses the finite volume approach to solve the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equation, by applying the technique of Fractional Area/Volume Obstacle Representation (FAVOR) to define an obstacle (Flow Science Inc. 2012). Equations (1) and (2) are RANS and continuity equations with FAVOR variables that are applied for incompressible flows.

Turbulence modelling is one of three key elements in CFD (Gunal 1996). There are many types of turbulence models, but the most common are Zero-equation models, One-equation models, Two-equation models, Reynolds Stress/Flux models and Algebraic Stress/Flux models. In FLOW-3D software, five turbulence models are available. The formulation used in the FLOW-3D software differs slightly from other formulations that includes the influence of the fractional areas/volumes of the FAVORTM method and generalizes the turbulence production (or decay) associated with buoyancy forces. The latter generalization, for example, includes buoyancy effects associated with non-inertial accelerations.

The available turbulence models in Flow-3D software are the Prandtl Mixing Length Model, the One-Equation Turbulent Energy Model, the Two-Equation Standard  Model, the Two-Equation Renormalization-Group (RNG) Model and large Eddy Simulation Model (Flow Science Inc. 2012).In this research the RNG model was selected because this model is more commonly used than other models in dealing with particles; moreover, it is more accurate to work with air entrainment and other particles. In general, the RNG model is classified as a more widely-used application than the standard k-ɛ model. And in particular, the RNG model is more accurate in flows that have strong shear regions than the standard k-ɛ model and it is defined to describe low intensity turbulent flows. For the turbulent dissipation  it solves an additional transport equation:

The default values of RMTKE, CDIS1 and CNU differ, being 1.39, 1.42 and 0.085 respectively. And CDIS2 is calculated from turbulent production (⁠⁠) and turbulent kinetic energy (⁠⁠).The kinematic turbulent viscosity is the same in all turbulence transport models and is calculated from

VOF and FAVOR are classifications of volume-fraction methods. In these two methods, firstly the area should be subdivided into a control volume grid or a small element. Each flow parameter like velocity, temperature and pressure values within the element are computed for each element containing liquids. Generally, these values represent the volumetric average of values in the elements.Numerous methods have been used recently to solve free infinite boundaries in the various numerical simulations. VOF is an easy and powerful method created based on the concept of a fractional intensity of fluid. A significant number of studies have confirmed that this method is more flexible and efficient than others dealing with the configurations of a complex free boundary. By using VOF technology the Flow-3D free surface was modelled and first declared in Hirt & Nichols (1981). In the VOF method there are three ingredients: a planner to define the surface, an algorithm for tracking the surface as a net mediator moving over a computational grid, and application of the boundary conditions to the surface. Configurations of the fluids are defined in terms of VOF function, F (x, y, z, t) (Hirt & Nichols 1981). And this VOF function shows the volume of flow per unit volume

The FAVOR method is a different method and uses another volume fraction technique, which is only used to define the geometry, such as the volume of liquid in each cell used to determine the position of fluid surfaces. Another fractional volume can be used to define the solid surface. Then, this information is used to determine the boundary conditions of the wall that the flow should be adapted for.

In this study, the experimental results of Ostad Mirza (2016) was simulated. In a channel composed of two 4 m long modules, with a transparent sidewall of height 0.6 m and 0.5 m width. The upstream chute slope (i.e. pseudo-bottom angle) Ɵ1 = 50°, the downstream chute slope Ɵ2 = 30° or 18.6°, the step heights h = 0.06 m, the total number of steps along the 50° chute 41 steps, the total number of steps along the 30° chute 34 steps and the total number of steps along the 18.6° chute 20 steps.

The flume inflow tool contained a jetbox with a maximum opening set to 0.12 meters, designed for passing the maximum unit discharge of 0.48 m2/s. The measurements of the flow properties (i.e. air concentration and velocity) were computed perpendicular to the pseudo-bottom as shown in Figure 1 at the centre of twenty stream-wise cross-sections, along the stepped chute, (i.e. in five steps up on the slope change and fifteen steps down on the slope change, namely from step number −09 to +23 on 50°–30° slope change, or from −09 to +15 on 50°–18.6° slope change, respectively).

Numerical model set-up

A 3D numerical model of hydraulic phenomena was simulated based on an experimental study by Ostad Mirza (2016). The water surcharge and flow pressure over the stepped spillway was computed for two models of a stepped spillway with different discharge for each model. In this study, the package was used to simulate the flow parameters such as air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressures. The solver uses the finite volume technique to discretize the computational domain. In every test run, one incompressible fluid flow with a free surface flow selected at 20̊ was used for this simulation model. Table 2 shows the variables used in test runs.Table 2

For stepped spillway simulation, several parameters should be specified to get accurate simulations, which is the scope of this research. Viscosity and turbulent, gravity and non-inertial reference frame, air entrainment, density evaluation and drift-flux should be activated for these simulations. There are five different choices in the ‘viscosity and turbulent’ option, in the viscosity flow and Renormalized Group (RNG) model. Then a dynamical model is selected as the second option, the ‘gravity and non-inertial reference frame’. Only the z-component was inputted as a negative 9.81 m/s2 and this value represents gravitational acceleration but in the same option the x and y components will be zero. Air entrainment is selected. Finally, in the drift-flux model, the density of phase one is input as (water) 1,000 kg/m3 and the density of phase two (air) as 1.225 kg/m3. Minimum volume fraction of phase one is input equal to 0.1 and maximum volume fraction of phase two to 1 to allow air concentration to reach 90%, then the option allowing gas to escape at free surface is selected, to obtain closer simulation.

The flow domain is divided into small regions relatively by the mesh in Flow-3D numerical model. Cells are the smallest part of the mesh, in which flow characteristics such as air concentration, velocity and dynamic pressure are calculated. The accuracy of the results and simulation time depends directly on the mesh block size so the cell size is very important. Orthogonal mesh was used in cartesian coordinate systems. A smaller cell size provides more accuracy for results, so we reduced the number of cells whilst including enough accuracy. In this study, the size of cells in x, y and z directions was selected as 0.015 m after several trials.

Figure 3 shows the 3D computational domain model 50–18.6 slope change, that is 6.0 m length, 0.50 m width and 4.23 m height. The 3D model of the computational domain model 50–30 slope changes this to 6.0 m length, 0.50 m width and 5.068 m height and the size of meshes in x, y, and z directions are 0.015 m. For the 50–18.6 slope change model: both total number of active and passive cells = 4,009,952, total number of active cells = 3,352,307, include real cells (used for solving the flow equations) = 3,316,269, open real cells = 3,316,269, fully blocked real cells equal to zero, external boundary cells were 36,038, inter-block boundary cells = 0 (Flow-3D report). For 50–30 slope change model: both total number of active and passive cells = 4,760,002, total number of active cells equal to 4,272,109, including real cells (used for solving the flow equations) were 3,990,878, open real cells = 3,990,878 fully blocked real cells = zero, external boundary cells were 281,231, inter-block boundary cells = 0 (Flow-3D report).

When solving the Navier-Stokes equation and continuous equations, boundary conditions should be applied. The most important work of boundary conditions is to create flow conditions similar to physical status. The Flow-3D software has many types of boundary condition; each type can be used for the specific condition of the models. The boundary conditions in Flow-3D are symmetry, continuative, specific pressure, grid overlay, wave, wall, periodic, specific velocity, outflow, and volume flow rate.

There are two options to input finite flow rate in the Flow-3D software either for inlet discharge of the system or for the outlet discharge of the domain: specified velocity and volume flow rate. In this research, the X-minimum boundary condition, volume flow rate, has been chosen. For X-maximum boundary condition, outflow was selected because there is nothing to be calculated at the end of the flume. The volume flow rate and the elevation of surface water was set for Q = 0.1 and 0.235 m3/s respectively (Figure 2).

The bottom (Z-min) is prepared as a wall boundary condition and the top (Z-max) is computed as a pressure boundary condition, and for both (Y-min) and (Y-max) as symmetry.

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

ListenReadSpeaker webReader: Listen

The air concentration distribution profiles in two models of stepped spillway were obtained at an acquisition time equal to 25 seconds in skimming flow for both upstream and downstream of a slope change 50°–18.6° and 50°–30° for different discharge as in Table 2, and as shown in Figure 4 for 50°–18.6° slope change and Figure 5 for 50°–30° slope change configuration for dc/h = 4.6. The simulation results of the air concentration are very close to the experimental results in all curves and fairly close to that predicted by the advection-diffusion model for the air bubbles suggested by Chanson (1997) on a constant sloping chute.

But as is shown in all above mentioned figures it is clear that at the pseudo-bottom the CFD results of air concentration are less than experimental ones until the depth of water reaches a quarter of the total depth of water. Also the direction of the curves are parallel to each other when going up towards the surface water and are incorporated approximately near the surface water. For all curves, the cross-section is separate between upstream and downstream steps. Therefore the (-) sign for steps represents a step upstream of the slope change cross-section and the (+) sign represents a step downstream of the slope change cross-section.

The dimensionless velocity distribution (V/V90) profile was acquired at an acquisition time equal to 25 seconds in skimming flow of the upstream and downstream slope change for both 50°–18.6° and 50°–30° slope change. The simulation results are compared with the experimental ones showing that for all curves there is close similarity for each point between the observed and experimental results. The curves increase parallel to each other and they merge near at the surface water as shown in Figure 6 for slope change 50°–18.6° configuration and Figure 7 for slope change 50°–30° configuration. However, at step numbers +1 and +5 in Figure 7 there are few differences between the simulated and observed results, namely the simulation curves ascend regularly meaning the velocity increases regularly from the pseudo-bottom up to the surface water.

Figure 8 (50°–18.6° slope change) and Figure 9 (50°–30° slope change) compare the simulation results and the experimental results for the presented dimensionless dynamic pressure distribution for different points on the stepped spillway. The results show a good agreement with the experimental and numerical simulations in all curves. For some points, few discrepancies can be noted in pressure magnitudes between the simulated and the observed ones, but they are in the acceptable range. Although the experimental data do not completely agree with the simulated results, there is an overall agreement.

The pressure profiles were acquired at an acquisition time equal to 70 seconds in skimming flow on 50°–18.6°, where p is the measured dynamic pressure, h is step height and ϒ is water specific weight. A negative sign for steps represents a step upstream of the slope change cross-section and a positive sign represents a step downstream of the slope change cross-section.

It is obvious from Figure 10 that the streamwise development of dimensionless pressure before slope change (steps number −1, −2 and −3) both of the experimental and simulated results are close to each other. However, it is clear that there is a little difference between the results of the streamwise development of dimensionless pressure at step numbers +1, +2 and +3. Moreover, from step number +3 to the end, the curves get close to each other.

CONCLUSION

ListenReadSpeaker webReader: Listen

In this research, numerical modelling was attempted to investigate the effect of abrupt slope change on the flow properties (air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressure) over a stepped spillway with two different models and various flow rates in a skimming flow regime by using the CFD technique. The numerical model was verified and compared with the experimental results of Ostad Mirza (2016). The same domain of the numerical model was inputted as in experimental models to reduce errors as much as possible.

Flow-3D is a well modelled tool that deals with particles. In this research, the model deals well with air entrainment particles by observing their results with experimental results. And the reason for the small difference between the numerical and the experimental results is that the program deals with particles more accurately than the laboratory. In general, both numerical and experimental results showed that near to the slope change the flow bulking, air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressure are greatly affected by abrupt slope change on the steps. Although the extent of the slope change was relatively small, the influence of the slope change was major on flow characteristics.

The Renormalized Group (RNG) model was selected as a turbulence solver. For 3D modelling, orthogonal mesh was used as a computational domain and the mesh grid size used for X, Y, and Z direction was equal to 0.015 m. In CFD modelling, air concentration and velocity distribution were recorded for a period of 25 seconds, but dynamic pressure was recorded for a period of 70 seconds. The results showed that there is a good agreement between the numerical and the physical models. So, it can be concluded that the proposed CFD model is very suitable for use in simulating and analysing the design of hydraulic structures.

이 연구에서 수치 모델링은 두 가지 다른 모델과 다양한 유속을 사용하여 스키밍 흐름 영역에서 계단식 배수로에 대한 유동 특성 (공기 혼입, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력)에 대한 급격한 경사 변화의 영향을 조사하기 위해 시도되었습니다. CFD 기술. 수치 모델을 검증하여 Ostad Mirza (2016)의 실험 결과와 비교 하였다. 오차를 최대한 줄이기 위해 실험 모형과 동일한 수치 모형을 입력 하였다.

Flow-3D는 파티클을 다루는 잘 모델링 된 도구입니다. 이 연구에서 모델은 실험 결과를 통해 결과를 관찰하여 공기 혼입 입자를 잘 처리합니다. 그리고 수치와 실험 결과의 차이가 작은 이유는 프로그램이 실험실보다 입자를 더 정확하게 다루기 때문입니다. 일반적으로 수치 및 실험 결과는 경사에 가까워지면 유동 벌킹, 공기 혼입, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력이 계단의 급격한 경사 변화에 크게 영향을받는 것으로 나타났습니다. 사면 변화의 정도는 상대적으로 작았지만 사면 변화의 영향은 유동 특성에 큰 영향을 미쳤다.

Renormalized Group (RNG) 모델이 난류 솔버로 선택되었습니다. 3D 모델링의 경우 계산 영역으로 직교 메쉬가 사용되었으며 X, Y, Z 방향에 사용 된 메쉬 그리드 크기는 0.015m입니다. CFD 모델링에서 공기 농도와 속도 분포는 25 초 동안 기록되었지만 동적 압력은 70 초 동안 기록되었습니다. 결과는 수치 모델과 물리적 모델간에 좋은 일치가 있음을 보여줍니다. 따라서 제안 된 CFD 모델은 수력 구조물의 설계 시뮬레이션 및 해석에 매우 적합하다는 결론을 내릴 수 있습니다.

Abstract

Die casting process of Mg alloys for high temperature applications was studied to produce an engine oil pan. The aim of this paper is to evaluate die casting processes of the Aluminium oil pan and in parallel to apply new Mg alloy for die casting the oil pan. Temperature distributions of the die and flow pattern of the alloys in cavity were simulated to diecast a new Mg alloy by the flow simulation software. Dies have to be modified according to material characteristics because melting temperature and heat capacity are different. We changed the shape and position of runner, gate, vent hole and overflow by the simulation results. After several trial and error, oil pans of AE44 and MRI153M Mg alloys are produced successfully without defect. Sleeve filling ratio, cavity filling time and shot speed of die casting machine are important parameter to minimize the defect for die casting Magnesium alloy.

서론

크랭크케이스의 하부에 부착되는 오일팬은 오일 펌프에 의해 펌핑된 오일이 윤활작용을 마치고 다시 모이는 부품이다. 오일의 온도에 의해 가열되므로 일반적으로 사용되는 마그네슘 합금인 AZ나 AM계열의 합금은 사용이 불가하며 내열소재의 적용이 불가피하다.

현재 ADC12종 알루미늄 오일팬 둥이 적용되고 있으며, 이를 마그네슘으로 대체할 경우 밀도가 알루미늄 2.8g/cm3‘, 마그네슘 1.8g/cm3‘이므로 약 35%의 경량화가 가능하다고 단순하게 말할 수 있다.

그러나 탄성계수는 알루미늄 73GPa이 고 마그네슘 45GPa이므로 외부 하중을 지지하고 있는 부품의 경우는 단순한 재질의 변경만으로는 알루미늄과 같은 정도의 강성을 나타내지 못하므로 형상의 변경 등을 통한 설계 최적화가 요구된다.

마그네슘은 현재까지 개발된 여러 가지 구조용 합금들 중에서 최소의 밀도를 가지고 있으며 동시에 우수한 비강도 및 비탄성 계수를 가지고 있다.1.2)

그러나 이러한 우수한 특성을 가지는 마그네슘 합금은 경쟁 재료에 비해 절대 강도 및 인성이 낮으며 고온에서 인장 강도가 급격히 감소하고 내부식 성능이 떨어지는 등의 문제점이 있다. 현재까지 자동차 부품 중 마그네슘 합금은 Cylinder head cover, Steering wheel, Instrument panel, Seat frame 등 비교적 내열성이 요구되지 않는 부분에만 한정적으로 적용되고 있다.
자동차 산업에서 좀 더 많은 부품에 마그네슘 합금을 적용하기 위해서는 내열성을 향상 시키고 고온강도를 향상시키기 위한 새로운 합금의 개발이 이루어져야 한다. 최근 마그네슘 합금개발에 대한 연구동향은 비교적 저가인 원소를 값비싼 원소가 첨가된 합금계에 부분적으로 첨가하거나 대체함으로써 비슷한 내열 특성을 가지는 합금을 개발하고,34) 이를 자동차 산업이나 전자 산업의 내열 부품 적용으로 확대하기 위하여 진행되고 있다. 현재 마그네슘 내열 부품은 선진국에서 자동차 부품으로 개발되고 있으나6-8)

국내에서는 아직 자동차 부품에 폭 넓게 적용되고 있지 않다. 그러므로 국내 자동차 산업이 치열한 국제 시장에서 생존하기 위해서는 마그네슘 합금의 내열 부품 제조기술을 조기에 개발하여 선진국보다 기술적, 경제적 우위를 확보하는 것이 절실히 요구된다.

본 연구에서는 내열 마그네슘합금을 이용하여 알루미늄 오일팬을 대체할 수 있는 새로운 오일팬의 개발올 위한 적절한 다이캐스팅 공정방안을 도출하고자 한다.

결론

오일팬은 엔진 내부에서 순환되어 돌아오는 오일의 열을 외부로 발산하는 냉각기능 및 엔진으로부터 발생하는 소음이 외부로 전달되지 않도록 소음을 차단하는 역할을 수행하는 매우 중요한 부품 중의 하나이다. 본 연구에서는 현재 개발 중에 있는 새로운 내열 마그네슘 합금을 이용하여 현재 사용하고 있는 알루미늄 오일팬을 대체할 마그네슘 오일팬을 개발하고 시험 생산하였으며 다음과 같은 결론을 얻었다.

  1. 알루미늄 합금과 마그네슘 합금의 단위 부피당 열 용량은 각각 3.07x10J/m/K, 2.38x10J/m/K로서 동일 주조 조건 시 응고 속도 차이가 제품 성형에 영향을 미칠 것으로 예상되었으며, 주조해석 및 제품분석을 통해 확인하였다. 따라서 주조 조건에 가장 큰 영향을 미치는 것으로 확인된 용탕, 금형온도, 주조속도 등을 변경하여 최적 주조공정 조건을 확립하였다.
  2. 제품 및 시험편 성형에 영향을 미치는 것으로 확인된 런너의 곡률 반경을 증대시키고 게이트의 갯수 및 오버플로우 위치와 형상을 조절함으로서 제품 및 시험편의 용탕 흐름을 원활하게 조절 할 수 있었다.
  3. MRI153M 합금은 AE44 합금에 비해 응고 시작점에서 완료점까지의 응고시간이 길어 응고 완료 후, 내부 수축기포가 보다 많이 관찰되었다.
    따라서 MRI153M 합금 주조시 슬리브 충진율, 게이트 통과속도, 충진시간 등을 달리하여 최적 주조 품을 생산할 수 있었다.

Abstract

용접시 표면 장력 구동 흐름 또는 마랑고니 흐름은 용접 비드 모양을 제어하는데 중요한 역할을 하므로 용접 접합 품질에 영향을 미칩니다. 용해된 금속의 표면 장력은 보통 음의 온도 계수를 가지므로 용접 풀이 중심에서 토우 방향으로 흐르게 됩니다.

표면 장력의 이 온도 계수는 황(S), 산소(O), 셀레늄(Se) 및 텔루륨(Te)과 같은 표면 활성 요소가 있는 경우 양의 계수로 변경할 수 있습니다. 소모품에 존재하는 탈산화 원소의 양이 용접 금속에 존재하는 산소량을 결정합니다. 탈산화제 양이 적으면 용접 금속에 산소 농도가 높아집니다.

적절한 양의 산소가 있으면 용융지에 표면 장력 구배의 양의 온도 계수가 발생할 수 있습니다. 이 경우 용접 풀은 토우에서 중앙 방향으로 흐릅니다. 그 결과, 아크와 용융지에 있는 화농성 반응의 경우, 합금 요소의 다양한 산화물이 슬래그(slag)라고 합니다. 슬래그는 용융지 표면에 떠서 용융지 흐름 패턴에 따라 누적됩니다.

그 결과, 슬래그는 용융지 흐름 패턴에 따라 용접 비드 중심 또는 토우 중심을 따라 형성됩니다. 슬래그는 용접 비드의 외관과 도장 접착력을 저하시키므로 제거해야 합니다. 쉽게 분리할 수 있기 때문에 용접 비드 중심 부근에서 슬래그가 형성되는 것이 좋습니다.

용접 풀의 현장 고속 비디오 촬영, 용접 금속 화학 성분 분석, 소모품 합금 요소가 용접 풀 흐름 패턴 및 슬래그 형성 위치에 미치는 영향이 공개되어 CMT-GMAW의 생산성 향상을 위해 용접 소모품 선택을 용이하게 할 수 있습니다.

The surface tension driven flow or Marangoni flow in welding plays an important role in governing weld bead shape hence affecting the weld joint quality. The surface tension of molten metal usually has a negative temperature coefficient causing the weld pool to flow from the center towards the toe.

This temperature coefficient of the surface tension can be altered to be a positive one in the presence of surface-active elements like sulfur (S), oxygen (O), selenium (Se) and tellurium (Te). The amount of deoxidizing elements present in the consumables governs the amount of oxygen present in the weld metal. The presence of a lower amount of deoxidizers results in higher concentration of oxygen in the weld metal.

The presence of adequate amount of oxygen can result in a positive temperature coefficient of surface tension gradient in the weld pool. In such situation, the weld pool flows from the toe towards the direction of the center. As a result, of pyrometallurgical reactions in the arc and the weld pool various oxides of the alloying elements are former which are referred as slag.

The slags float on the weld pool surface and accumulate following the weld pool flow pattern. As a result, slags form either along the center of the weld bead or the toe depending on the weld pool flow pattern. The slags need to be removed as they degrade the weld bead appearance and paint adhesiveness.

Due to easy detachability, slag formation near the center of the weld bead is desired. From in-situ high-speed videography of weld pool, weld metal chemical composition analysis, the effect of consumables alloying elements on weld pool flow pattern and slag formation location are disclosed, which can facilitate the selection of the welding consumables for better productivity in CMT-GMAW.

Abstract

터널 배수로는 높은 자유 표면 유속이 설정되는 배수로 유형 중 하나입니다. 회전 가속과 난류 흐름의 불규칙성으로 인해 오목한 수직 굽힘에서 압력이 증가합니다. 물리적 모델은 이 현상을 분석하는 가장 좋은 도구입니다.

모든 실제 프로토 타입 상태 분석을 포괄하는 데 필요한 물리적 모델의 수가 너무 많아 배치 및 비용 측면에서 비실용적입니다. 따라서 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어는 가능한 모든 실제 대안을 포괄하는 오목한 굴곡 터널의 난류 흐름 데이터베이스를 분석하고 생성하기 위해 선택되었습니다.

이 소프트웨어는 방전과 형상이 다른 다양한 터널을 시뮬레이션했습니다. 수치 결과는 Alborz Dam 터널 배수로의 건설 된 물리적 모델의 실험 결과로 검증되었으며 만족스러운 동의를 얻었습니다. 차원 분석은 문제의 관련 변수를 차원 없는 매개 변수로 그룹화하는 데 사용됩니다.

이러한 매개 변수는 인공 신경망 시뮬레이션에 사용됩니다. 결과는 Flow-3D 소프트웨어로 얻은 무 차원 매개 변수와 신경망에 의해 예측된 변수 사이의 상관 계수 R2 = 0.95를 보여 주었으며, 이와 관련하여 난류 모델링을 통해 얻은 데이터베이스를 기반으로 한 인공 신경망이 결론을 내릴 수있었습니다. 압력 예측을 위한 강력한 도구입니다.

현재 연구에서 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어는 처음에 다양한 크기와 배출의 터널 배수로에서 난류 흐름을 시뮬레이션하는데 사용되었습니다. 결과는 이란 에너지부 물 연구소에서 제공한 Alborz 저장 댐에서 얻은 실제 데이터와 비교하여 검증되었습니다.

시뮬레이션에는 다양한 난류 모델이 사용되었으며 RNG 방법이 관찰된 실제 결과와 가장 잘 일치하는 것으로 나타났습니다. 직경이 3 ~ 15m 인 다양한 터널 배수로, 곡률 반경 3 개, 거의 모든 실제 사례를 포괄하는 3개의 배출이 시뮬레이션에 사용되었습니다.

차원 분석을 사용하여 무 차원 매개 변수를 생성하고 문제의 변수 수를 줄였으며 마지막으로 두 개의 주요 무 차원 그룹이 결정되었습니다. 이러한 무 차원 변수 간의 관계를 얻기 위해 신경망을 사용하고 터널 배수로의 오목한 굴곡에서 압력 예측 단계에서 0.95의 상관 계수를 얻었습니다.

압력 계산 결과는 다른 일반적인 방법으로 얻은 결과와 비교되었습니다. 비교는 신경망 결과가 훨씬 더 정확하고 배수로 터널의 오목한 곡률에서 압력을 예측하는 강력한 도구로 간주 될 수 있음을 나타냅니다.

Abstract

이 연구에서는, 파일 그룹 주위의 흐름 패턴과 국소적 스크루 메커니즘을 식별하기 위해, 플로우 필드를 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용해 시뮬레이션했다. 편평한 침대 채널에 나란히 배열되어 있는 한 쌍의 말뚝이 조사되었다. Navier-Stokes 방정식을 확립하기 위해 RNGk-epsilon 난류 모델을 사용하였고 실험 데이터를 사용하여 결과를 검증하였다. FLOW-3D 기능의 경우, 소프트웨어가 파일 그룹 간의 예상 상호작용을 적절히 시뮬레이션할 수 있는 것으로 확인되었다. 플로우 필드 시뮬레이션 결과는 레이놀즈 숫자와 말뚝 간격이 vortices 형성에 가장 큰 영향을 미치는 변수라는 것을 보여주었다. 탠덤 더미 주변의 흐름과 웨이크 바이크 주변의 하향 흐름은 측면 배치와 단일 더미에 비해 더 강렬하고 복잡했다.

In this study to identify the flow pattern and local scour mechanism around pile groups, the flow field was simulated using FLOW-3D software. A pair of pile on a flat-bed channel with side by side and tandem arrangements was investigated. To establish Navier–Stokes equations, the RNGk-e turbulence model was used and the results were verified using experimental data. In case of FLOW-3D capability, it was found that the software was able to properly simulate the expected interaction between the pile groups. The results of flow field simulation showed that Reynolds number and the pile spacing are the most influential variables in forming vortices. The flow around tandem pile and the downward flow around wake vortices were more intense and complicate in comparison with side by side arrangements and single pile.

생체 유체에서 자성 입자의 연속 흐름 분리 : 마이크로 장치 형상이 분리 성능을 어떻게 결정합니까?

Abstract

The use of functionalized magnetic particles for the detection or separation of multiple chemicals and biomolecules from biofluids continues to attract significant attention. After their incubation with the targeted substances, the beads can be magnetically recovered to perform analysis or diagnostic tests. Particle recovery with permanent magnets in continuous-flow microdevices has gathered great attention in the last decade due to the multiple advantages of microfluidics. As such, great efforts have been made to determine the magnetic and fluidic conditions for achieving complete particle capture; however, less attention has been paid to the effect of the channel geometry on the system performance, although it is key for designing systems that simultaneously provide high particle recovery and flow rates. Herein, we address the optimization of Y-Y-shaped microchannels, where magnetic beads are separated from blood and collected into a buffer stream by applying an external magnetic field. The influence of several geometrical features (namely cross section shape, thickness, length, and volume) on both bead recovery and system throughput is studied. For that purpose, we employ an experimentally validated Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) numerical model that considers the dominant forces acting on the beads during separation. Our results indicate that rectangular, long devices display the best performance as they deliver high particle recovery and high throughput. Thus, this methodology could be applied to the rational design of lab-on-a-chip devices for any magnetically driven purification, enrichment or isolation.

생체 유체에서 여러 화학 물질과 생체 분자의 검출 또는 분리를 위한 기능화된 자성 입자의 사용은 계속해서 상당한 관심을 받고 있습니다. 표적 물질과 함께 배양 한 후 비드는 자기적으로 회수되어 분석 또는 진단 테스트를 수행 할 수 있습니다.

연속 흐름 마이크로 장치에서 영구 자석을 사용한 입자 회수는 마이크로 유체의 여러 장점으로 인해 지난 10 년 동안 큰 관심을 모았습니다. 따라서 완전한 입자 포획을 달성하기 위한 자기 및 유체 조건을 결정하기 위해 많은 노력을 기울였습니다.

그러나 높은 입자 회수율과 유속을 동시에 제공하는 시스템을 설계하는데 있어 핵심이기는 하지만 시스템 성능에 대한 채널 형상의 영향에 대해서는 덜 주의를 기울였습니다.

여기에서 우리는 자기 비드가 혈액에서 분리되어 외부 자기장을 적용하여 버퍼 스트림으로 수집되는 Y-Y 모양의 마이크로 채널의 최적화를 다룹니다. 비드 회수 및 시스템 처리량에 대한 여러 기하학적 특징 (즉, 단면 형상, 두께, 길이 및 부피)의 영향을 연구합니다.

이를 위해 분리 중에 비드에 작용하는 지배적인 힘을 고려하는 실험적으로 검증된 CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) 수치 모델을 사용합니다.

우리의 결과는 직사각형의 긴 장치가 높은 입자 회수율과 높은 처리량을 제공하기 때문에 최고의 성능을 보여줍니다. 따라서 이 방법론은 자기 구동 정제, 농축 또는 분리를 위한 랩 온어 칩 장치의 합리적인 설계에 적용될 수 있습니다.

Abstract

이 연구에서는 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 소프트웨어 (FLOW-3D®)를 사용하여 바닥 오리피스가 있는 풀형 어로에서 흐름의 3D 수치 모델링을 수행했습니다. 수치 결과는 음향 도플러 속도계 (ADV) 및 입자 이미지 속도계 (PIV) 측정에서 얻은 실험 데이터와 비교되었습니다.

흐름 깊이, 흐름 패턴, 수속, 난류 운동 에너지, Reynolds 수직 응력 및 바닥 구성 요소에 평행한 Reynolds 전단 응력과 같이 어로 효율에 영향을 미치는 여러 유체 역학적 변수를 정성 및 정량적으로 비교했습니다.

수치 모델은 복잡한 유동장을 정확하게 재현하여 수치 모델 예측과 분석 된 변수에 대한 실험 데이터 사이에 전반적으로 좋은 일치를 보여줍니다. 분석중인 모든 매개 변수에 대한 수치 모델 검증 수행의 중요성이 강조되었습니다.

또한 프로토 타입 어로의 업 스케일 된 수치 모델을 실행하여 스케일링 효과를 분석했습니다. 스케일 효과의 증거없이 실제 모델과 프로토 타입 치수 모두에 대해 유사한 정확도로 모델을 수행했습니다.

현재 연구는 CFD 모델 (즉, FLOW-3D®)이 새로운 수영장 유형 어로 형상을 위한 적절하고 효율적인 설계 및 분석 도구로 사용될 수 있으며 물리적 모델 테스트를 줄이고 보완 할 수 있다고 결론지었습니다.

In this study, the 3D numerical modelling of flow in a pool-type fishway with bottom orifices was performed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software (FLOW-3D®). Numerical results were compared with experimental data obtained from acoustic Doppler velocimetry (ADV) and particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements. Several hydrodynamic variables that influence fishways efficiencies, such as flow depths, flow patterns, water velocity, turbulent kinetic energy, Reynolds normal stresses, and Reynolds shear stress parallel to the bottom component, were qualitatively and quantitatively compared. The numerical model accurately reproduced the complex flow field, showing an overall good agreement between the numerical model predictions and the experimental data for the analysed variables. The importance of performing a numerical model validation for all the parameters under analyses was highlighted. Additionally, scaling effects were analysed by running an upscaled numerical model of the prototype fishway. The model performed with similar accuracy for both physical model and prototype dimensions with no evidence of scale effects. The present study concludes that CFD models (namely FLOW-3D®) may be used as an adequate and efficient design and analysis tool for new pool-type fishways geometries, reducing and complementing physical model testing.Keywords: pool-type fishways3D numerical modellingLESscale effectsflow patternsCFD model assessment

Introduction

강의 종단 연결성을 복원하는 것은 담수 생태계의 회복에있어 여전히 중요한 문제입니다 [1,2]. 잘 설계되고 건설된 경우 어로는 물고기가 댐과 둑을 지나 계속 이동할 수 있는 경로를 제공합니다.

물고기 통과 효율성에 대한 검토에서 Noonan et al. [3]은 기존의 많은 어로의 설계 특성이 어종의 요구를 적절하게 충족시키지 못했지만, 풀형 어로가 모든 어류 그룹에 대해 가장 높은 효율성을 보여 주었다는 것을 발견했습니다.
여러 어종에 적합한 수영 조건을 제공하는 것은 어항의 흐름과 난류 패턴이 성공에 중요한 역할을 하기 때문에 다소 어려운 일입니다 [2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12].

물리적 모델링은 풀형 유형 어로의 유체 역학을 연구하기 위한 주요 접근 방식이었습니다 (예 : [13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22]). 그러나 물리적 실험은 비용과 시간이 많이 소요됩니다. 따라서 컴퓨터 기술의 발전으로 인해 물리적 모델 테스트를 줄이기 위해 복잡한 기하학적 구조를 가진 유압 구조의 흐름 패턴을 분석하는 데 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 3 차원 (3D) 모델이 점점 더 많이 사용되고 있습니다 [23,24].

따라서 이러한 모델은 어로 유체 역학 연구 및 효율적인 어로 설계에 필수적인 역할을 할 수 있습니다.
어로에 대한 수치 모델링 연구는 주로 수직 슬롯 어로에 초점을 맞추고 있습니다 [12,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37]. 수영장의 주요 부분에서 수직 슬롯 어로 흐름은 거의 2 차원 (2D)이고 수직 속도 구성 요소가 수평 요소 [26]보다 훨씬 작기 때문에 이러한 연구의 대부분은 2D 모델을 사용했습니다.

바닥 오리피스가있는 수영장 유형 어로에서는 흐름이 매우 복잡하고 3D이므로 정확한 유동장 특성화를 얻기 위해 3D 모델을 사용해야합니다. 이 어로 구성을 모델링하는 것은 높은 속도 구배, 높은 와도 및 높은 전단 영역을 포함하기 때문에 다소 어렵습니다.

이 연구에서는 FLOW-3D® (Flow Science, Inc., Santa Fe, NM, USA)를 사용하여 바닥 오리피스가 있는 수영장 유형 어로의 3D 수치 시뮬레이션을 수행하여 흐름 깊이, 속도 및 난류 패턴을 예측하는 능력을 평가했습니다. .

최근 몇 년 동안 실내에 가까운 프로토 타입 수영장 형 어로가 사이프 린드 종의 행동과 움직임을 연구하는데 사용되었습니다 [1,7,8,11,38,39,40,41,42,43]. Silva et al. [38]은 노치, 급락 및 스트리밍에 대한 두 가지 다른 유동 체제와 관련하여 조정 가능한 치수를 가진 침수된 오리피스와 표면 노치의 동시 존재에 대한 Iberian barbel Luciobarbus bocagei (Steindachner, 1864)의 반응을 평가했습니다.

이 연구의 결과는 이베리아 바벨이 어로를 협상하기 위해 오리피스 (76 %)를 선호했으며 어로에 들어가는 데 걸리는 시간도 오리피스에 비해 훨씬 적다는 것을 보여주었습니다.

Silva et al. [39] 오프셋 및 직선 오리피스가있는 수영장 유형 어로의 이베리아 바벨에 대한 적합성을 테스트했습니다. 이 연구는 오프셋 구성이 직선 오리피스 레이아웃 (28 %)에 비해 물고기 통과 성공률 (68 %)이 훨씬 더 높음을 발견했습니다. 어로를 성공적으로 협상하는 데 걸리는 시간도 오프셋 구성, 특히 작은 성인의 경우 훨씬 더 낮았습니다.

이 연구에서는 유속과 난류 매개 변수가 물고기 수영 성능에 미치는 영향을 분석했습니다. 수영장의 유동장을 특성화하기 위해 음향 도플러 속도계가 사용되었습니다.

이 연구의 결과에 따르면 레이놀즈 전단 응력은 어로 내 이베리아 미늘의 움직임에 가장 큰 영향을 미치는 매개 변수임이 입증되었습니다. Branco et al. [40] 두 가지 다른 흐름을 가진 오리피스와 노치가 있는 풀형 유형 어로에서 형태 학적 및 생태학적 특성이 다른 두 종, 바닥 지향 이베리아 바벨 Luciobarbus bocagei 및 물기둥 수영 자 Iberian chub Squalius pyrenaicus의 거동과 성능을 평가했습니다.

풀의 유체 역학을 특성화하기 위해 음향 도플러 속도계가 사용되었습니다. 결과는 두 종 모두 흐름 흐름이있는 노치를 선호했으며 이 흐름 체제로 상류로 이동하는데 더 성공적이었습니다.
이 연구에서는 이 시설의 1 : 2.5 스케일 어로 모델을 사용하여 Silva et al.에 의해 테스트된 바닥 오리피스 구성이 있는 풀형 유형 어로의 속도와 난류를 측정했습니다.

[7,38] 효과가 입증된 바벨 사용. 2D 입자 이미지 속도계 (PIV) 시스템 및 음향 도플러 속도계 (ADV)를 사용하여 순간 속도의 광범위한 측정을 수행하고, 후 처리하고, 수치 모델 정확도를 평가하는 데 사용했습니다.

Haque et al. [44] 대부분의 경우 수치 모델의 검증에 사용할 수있는 실험 데이터 세트에 높은 측정 오류가 있고 / 또는 측정 메시가 너무 거칠어 서 이들의 예측 기능을 올바르게 평가할 수없는 문제를 언급했습니다.

모델. Blocken과 Gualtieri [23]는 검증 및 검증 연구가 필수적이며 CFD 연구를 검증하기위한 데이터를 제공하기 위해 고품질 실험이 필요하다고 언급합니다.

Fuentes-Pérez et al. [35]는 특히 난류 메트릭에 대한 어로 연구에서 수치 모델 검증 데이터를 찾는 데 어려움을 언급합니다. 두 가지 측정 기술을 사용하고 상당한 양의 실험 데이터를 얻었기 때문에 이 연구에서는 이러한 문제를 극복했습니다.

물리적 모델은 종종 Froude 수 유사성을 기반으로하며, 두 유사성 법칙을 모두 충족하는 데 어려움이있어 무시되는 레이놀즈 수 유사성입니다. 프로토 타입 레이놀즈 수가 일반적으로 훨씬 더 크기 때문에 레이놀즈 수 관련 스케일 효과가 도입될 수 있습니다.

레이놀즈 수 증가는 속도 분포와 경계층 속성에 영향을 미칠 수 있습니다 [45]. 척도 효과를 평가하기 위해 수치 시뮬레이션을 사용할 수 있습니다 [46,47]. 따라서 본 연구에서는 바닥 오리피스 흐름이있는 풀형어도에 대한 스케일 효과를 분석하기 위해 두 가지 크기의 수치 모델을 개발했습니다.

프로토 타입 치수의 대형 모델과 물리적 모델 치수의 스케일 된 소형 모델입니다. .
바닥 오리피스가있는 수영장 형 어로의 유동장은 수직 슬롯 어로 (VSF)의 유동장보다 매우 3 차원 적이며 훨씬 더 복잡합니다. 이는 어로 수치 모델 검증에 대한 이전 연구에서 더 자주 고려 된 설계입니다 [26, 27,28,29,35].

저자가 아는 한, 이것은 바닥 오리피스가있는 풀형 어로에 대한 최초의 CFD 연구이며, 여기에는 실험 속도 데이터와 풀형 어로에 대한 3 차원 수치 모델링 결과 간의 가장 광범위한 비교도 포함됩니다. 두 가지 다른 측정 기술 (PIV 및 ADV)이 사용되어 자세한 비교가 가능하고 이러한 유형의 유동장에 대한 CFD 시뮬레이션 결과에 대한 확신을 제공합니다.

이 연구는 다른 어로 유형의 이전 수치 모델 연구에서 제시되지 않았던 난류 매개 변수를 포함하여 수치 모델 결과와 측정 간의 일치에 대한 통계적 테스트를 통해 정성적 비교 뿐만 아니라 상세한 정량적 비교도 제공합니다. 스케일 효과도 다룹니다.

따라서 이 연구는 전 세계적으로 가장 많이 사용되는 풀 유형 어로의 CFD 모델 검증을 원활하게 할 것이며 [10] 설계자들의 사용을 장려 할 것입니다.
또한 새로운 풀 유형 어로 형상을 위한 설계 도구로 CFD 모델 (즉, FLOW 3D®)을 사용하는 방법에 대해 설명합니다.

Abstract

갑작스런 확장 및 바닥 낙하가 있는 고요한 정류지(stilling basin) 유역은 복잡한 수력 특성, 특히 3D 공간 수력 점프 아래에서 변동하는 압력 분포로 이어집니다.

이 논문은 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 기반으로 한 LES (Large Eddy Simulation) 모델과 TruVOF 방법을 사용하여 시간 평균 압력, 변동 압력의 RMS (Root Mean Square), 정물(stilling basin) 조 슬래브의 최대 및 최소 압력을 시뮬레이션했습니다.

실제 모델 결과와 비교하여 시뮬레이션 결과는 LES 모델이 정물 유역의 변동하는 수류 압력을 안정적으로 시뮬레이션 할 수 있음을 보여줍니다. 변동 압력의 RMS의 최대 값은 정수조 전면과 측벽의 연장선 부근에 나타납니다.

이 논문은 변동 압력의 생성 메커니즘과 Navier-Stokes 방정식에서 파생된 Poisson 방정식을 기반으로 영향 요인 (변동 속도, 속도 구배, 변동 와도)의 정량 분석과 특성의 정성 분석을 결합하는 연구 방법을 제공합니다.

변동하는 압력의. 정류 지의 소용돌이 영역과 벽에 부착 된 제트 영역의 변동 압력 분포는 주로 각각 와류 및 변동 유속의 영향을 받으며 충돌 영역의 분포는 변동 속도, 속도 구배 및 변동에 의해 발생합니다.

A stilling basin with sudden enlargement and bottom drop leads to complicated hydraulic characteristics, especially a fluctuating pressure distribution beneath 3D spatial hydraulic jumps. This paper used the large eddy simulation (LES) model and the TruVOF method based on FLOW-3D software to simulate the time-average pressure, root mean square (RMS) of fluctuating pressure, maximum and minimum pressure of a stilling basin slab. Compared with physical model results, the simulation results show that the LES model can simulate the fluctuating water flow pressure in a stilling basin reliably. The maximum value of RMS of fluctuating pressure appears in the vicinity of the front of the stilling basin and the extension line of the side wall. Based on the generating mechanism of fluctuating pressure and the Poisson Equation derived from the Navier–Stokes Equation, this paper provides a research method of combining quantitative analysis of influencing factors (fluctuating velocity, velocity gradient, and fluctuating vorticity) and qualitative analysis of the characteristics of fluctuating pressure. The distribution of fluctuating pressure in the swirling zone of the stilling basin and the wall-attached jet zone is mainly affected by the vortex and fluctuating flow velocity, respectively, and the distribution in the impinging zone is caused by fluctuating velocity, velocity gradient and fluctuating vorticity.

Abstract

Since the inception of microfluidics, the electric force has been exploited as one of the leading mechanisms for driving and controlling the movement of the operating fluid and the charged suspensions. Electric force has an intrinsic advantage in miniaturized devices. Because the electrodes are placed over a small distance, from sub-millimeter to a few microns, a very high electric field is easy to obtain. The electric force can be highly localized as its strength rapidly decays away from the peak. This makes the electric force an ideal candidate for precise spatial control. The geometry and placement of the electrodes can be used to design electric fields of varying distributions, which can be readily realized by Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) fabrication methods. In this paper, we examine several electrically driven liquid handling operations. The emphasis is given to non-linear electrohydrodynamic effects. We discuss the theoretical treatment and related numerical methods. Modeling and simulations are used to unveil the associated electrohydrodynamic phenomena. The modeling based investigation is interwoven with examples of microfluidic devices to illustrate the applications.

요약

미세 유체학이 시작된 이래로 전기력은 작동 유체와 충전 된 서스펜션의 움직임을 제어하고 제어하는 ​​주요 메커니즘 중 하나로 활용되어 왔습니다. 전기력은 소형 장치에서 본질적인 이점이 있습니다. 전극이 밀리미터 미만에서 수 미크론까지 작은 거리에 배치되기 때문에 매우 높은 전기장을 쉽게 얻을 수 있습니다. 

전기력은 강도가 피크에서 멀어지면서 빠르게 감소하기 때문에 고도로 국부화 될 수 있습니다. 이것은 전기력을 정밀한 공간 제어를 위한 이상적인 후보로 만듭니다.

전극의 기하학적 구조와 배치는 다양한 분포의 전기장을 설계하는 데 사용될 수 있으며, 이는 MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) 제조 방법으로 쉽게 실현할 수 있습니다. 

이 논문에서 우리는 몇 가지 전기 구동 액체 처리 작업을 검토합니다. 비선형 전기 유체 역학적 효과에 중점을 둡니다. 이론적 처리 및 관련 수치 방법에 대해 논의합니다. 모델링과 시뮬레이션은 관련된 전기 유체 역학 현상을 밝히는 데 사용됩니다. 모델링 기반 조사는 응용 분야를 설명하기 위해 미세 유체 장치의 예와 결합됩니다.

Energy Case Studies

천연자원이 계속 감소함에 따라, 대체 자원과 방법을 탐구하고 가능한 한 효과적으로 현재 공급량을 사용하고 있습니다. 엔지니어는 사고를 예방하고 채굴 및 기타 에너지 수확 기법으로 인한 환경적 영향을 평가하기 위해 FLOW-3D를 사용합니다.

Tailing Breach Simulation – CFD Analysis with FLOW-3D

점성이 높은 유체, 비 뉴턴 흐름, 슬러리 또는 심지어 세분화 된 흐름의 형태를 취할 수있는 많은 채광 응용 프로그램의 잔여 물인 테일링은 악명 높은 시뮬레이션 전제를 제공합니다. FLOW-3D  는 비 뉴턴 유체, 슬러리 및 입상 흐름에 대한 특수 모델을 포함하여 이러한 분석을 수행하는 데 필요한 모든 도구를 제공합니다. FLOW-3D 의 자유 표면 유동 모델링 기능 과 결합되어  이러한 어렵고 환경 적으로 민감한 문제에 대한 탁월한 모델링 솔루션을 제공합니다.

관련 응용 분야에는 바람 강제 분석에 따른 광석 비축 더미 먼지 드리프트가 포함되며, 여기서 FLOW-3D 의 드리프트 플럭스 모델을 통해 엔지니어는 광석 침착 및 유입 패턴과 개선 솔루션의 효과를 연구 할 수 있습니다.

액화와 기계적 방해가 물과 같은 뉴턴 흐름과는 대조적으로 입자 흐름의 매우 독특한 속성 인 결국 저절로 멈추는 위반의 동적 특징의 일부라는 점에 유의하십시오.

오일 및 가스 분리기

FLOW-3D  는 기름과 물과 같은 혼합 불가능한 유체를 모델링 할 수 있으며 개방 된 환경 (주변 공기)과 관련된 구성 요소 간의 뚜렷한 인터페이스를 정확하게 추적 할 수 있습니다. 유체는 전체 도메인에 영향을 미치는 역학으로 인해 자유롭게 혼합 될 수 있습니다. 시간이 지남에 따라 유체는 연속 상과 분산 상 간의 드리프트 관계에 따라 다시 분리됩니다. 중력 분리기의 성능은 CFD 모델링을 통해 향상 될 수 있습니다.

생산 파이프 | Production Pipes

생산에 사용되는 공정 파이프의 청소 과정에서 유체가 위로 흘러도 고밀도 입자가 침전될 수 있습니다. 침전 입자를 포착하도록 장치를 설계 할 수 있습니다. 파이프 중앙에 있는 “버킷”이 그러한 잠재적 장치중 하나 입니다. 흐름 변위로 인해 버킷 외부의 상류 속도는 고밀도 입자에 대한 침전 속도보다 높으며 버킷 내부에 모여 있습니다. 표시된 디자인에서 버킷 주변의 상향 유체 속도는 입자 안정화 속도보다 높습니다. 이로 인해 입자가 버킷과 파이프 벽 사이의 틈새를 통해 빠져 나갈 수 없습니다. 따라서 시뮬레이션된 입자는 버킷을 통과하여 아래에 정착하지 않습니다.

이 시뮬레이션은 상단에 부력이있는 구형 구조가있는 점 흡수 장치를 보여 주며, 들어오는 파도의 볏과 골과 함께 위아래로 이동합니다. FLOW-3D 의 움직이는 물체 모델은 x 또는 y 방향으로의 움직임을 제한하면서 z 방향으로 결합 된 움직임을 허용하는 데 사용됩니다. 진폭 5m, 파장 100m의 스톡 스파를 사용했다. RNG 모델은 파도가 점 흡수 장치와 상호 작용할 때 발생하는 난류를 포착하는 데 사용되었습니다. 예상대로 많은 난류 운동 에너지가 장치 근처에서 생성됩니다. 플롯은 난류로 인해 장치 근처의 복잡한 속도 장의 진화로 인해 질량 중심의 불규칙한 순환 운동을 보여줍니다.

다중 플랩, 하단 경첩 파동 에너지 변환기 | Multi-Flap, Bottom-Hinged Wave Energy Converter

진동하는 플랩은 바다의 파도에서 에너지를 추출하여 기계 에너지로 변환합니다. Arm은 물결에 반응하여 피벗된 조인트에 장착된 진자로 진동합니다. 플랩을 배열로 구성하여 다중 플랩 파동 에너지 변환기를 만들 수 있습니다. 아래 상단에 표시된 CFD 시뮬레이션에서 3 개의 플랩 배열이 시뮬레이션됩니다. 모든 플랩은 바닥에 경첩이 달려 있으며 폭 15m x 높이 10m x 두께 2m입니다. 어레이는 30m 깊이에서 10 초의 주파수로 4m 진폭파에서 작동합니다. 시뮬레이션은 중앙 평면을 따라 복잡한 속도 등 가면을 보여줍니다. 이는 한 플랩이 어레이 내의 다른 플랩에 미치는 영향을 연구하는 데 중요합니다. 3 개의 플랩이 유사한 동적 동작으로 시작하는 동안 플랩의 상호 작용 효과는 곧 동작을 위상에서 벗어납니다. 유사한 플랩 에너지 변환기가 오른쪽 하단에 표시됩니다. 이 시뮬레이션에서 플랩은 가장 낮은 지점에서 물에 완전히 잠 깁니다. 이러한 에너지 변환기를 Surface Piercing 플랩 에너지 변환기라고합니다. 이 두 시뮬레이션 예제는 모두 미네르바 역학 .

진동 수주 | Oscillating Water Column

진동하는 수주는 부분적으로 잠긴 중공 구조입니다. 그것은 물의 기둥 위에 공기 기둥을 둘러싸고 수면 아래의 바다로 열려 있습니다. 파도는 물 기둥을 상승 및 하강시키고, 차례로 공기 기둥을 압축 및 감압합니다. 이 갇힌 공기는 일반적으로 기류의 방향에 관계없이 회전 할 수 있는 터빈을 통해 대기로 흐르게 됩니다. 터빈의 회전은 전기를 생성하는 데 사용됩니다.

아래의 CFD 시뮬레이션은 진동하는 수주를 보여줍니다. FLOW-3D에서 포착한 물리학을 강조하기 위해 중공 구조에서 물기둥이 상승 및 하강하는 부분만 모델링  합니다. 시뮬레이션은 다른 파형 생성 선택을 제외하고 유사한 결과를 전달합니다. 아래의 시뮬레이션은 웨이브 유형 경계 조건을 사용하는 반면 그 아래의 시뮬레이션은  움직이는 물체 모델  을 사용하여 실험실에서 수행한 것처럼 차례로 웨이브를 생성하는 움직이는 플런저를 생성합니다. 각 시뮬레이션에 대해 속이 빈 구조의 압력 플롯이 표시됩니다. 결국 그 압력에 기초하여 터빈이 회전 운동으로 설정되기 때문에 챔버에서 얼마나 많은 압력이 생성되는지 아는 것이 중요합니다.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)는 제 3자가 친환경 건축물 인증을 제공하는 자발적 인증 시스템입니다.

FLOW-3D는 보고타(콜롬비아)의 사무실 건물에서 “IEQ-Credit2–환기 증가”라는 신뢰를 얻는 데 큰 도움을 주었습니다. 이러한 인정을 받기 위해서는 실외 공기가 ASHRAE의 표준 비율인 30%를 초과한다는 것을 증명해야만 합니다. 이 건물에서 실외 공기는 태양 광선에 의해, 가열되는 지붕 위의 2개의 유리 굴뚝에 의해 발생되는 온도 차이에 의해 발생하는 열 부력의 영향으로 제공됩니다. 이것은 바람이 불지 않는 조건에서 이루어져야 합니다.

Comparing HVAC System Designs

최근 프로젝트에서 Tecsult의 HVAC(난방, 냉방 및 환기)시스템 엔지니어는 강력한 에어컨 시스템의 두 가지 다른 구성을 고려해야 했고 노동자들에게 어떤 것이 가장 쾌적함을 제공하는지 보여주기를 원했습니다. FLOW-3D는 대체 설계를 시뮬레이션하고 비교하는 데 사용되었습니다.

이 발전소는 대형(길이 90m, 너비 33m, 높이 26m)건물로 변압기, 전력선, 조명 등 열 발생 장비를 갖추고 있습니다. 에어컨 시스템의 목적은 건물 내 최대 온도를 35ºC로 제한하는 것입니다. 디퓨저가 하부 레벨에 위치하고 천장 근처의 환기구가 있기 때문에 천장 근처에서 최대 공기 온도가 발생하고 바닥 레벨은 반드시 몇도 더 낮습니다.

ABSTRACT

하천 및 관련 구조물의 특성 및 흐름 거동에 대한 평가는 소프트웨어 사용이 불가피한 복잡한 현상입니다.

Spur dike는 굴곡과 직선 경로에서 하천 조직, 침식 제어 및 강둑 보호에 사용되는 간단한 유압 구조입니다. 이 논문에서, 굴곡부에 지정된 간격을 가진 불 침투성 Spur 둑 주변의 흐름 패턴은 다양한 배출 및 흐름 폭의 다른 좁힘 비율에 대해 평가되고, 서로 비교됩니다.

또한 L 자형 스퍼 제방 주변의 속도 분포는 유한 체적 방법을 사용하여 2 차원 및 3 차원으로 평가됩니다.

수행된 실험에 따르면 최대 속도 제한 및 이에 따라 30 ° 각도의 첫 번째 스퍼 제방에서 강 굴곡에서 90 ° 각도의 물 흐름 방향으로 마지막 스퍼 제방까지 수 세량이 감소했습니다. 그리고 흐름이 마지막 스퍼 제방에 도달하면 흐름의 모든 난류가 손실됩니다.

흐름이 마지막 스퍼 제방까지 도달할 때 흐름의 모든 난류가 손실됩니다.

Scouring Tip2

유체유동이 일어나지 않는 경사면의 scouring 현상에 대한 이해

해석 조건

  • Inflow : velocity=1.23m/s
  • Outflow : Air pressure
  • Sediment condition
Scouring Tip1
Scouring Tip2
  1. 유체유동이 일어나지 않는 경사면에 scouring이 일어나는 이유가 무엇인가?
  2. Sediment가 점착력이 있는 경우(clay)는 어떤 변수로 입력해야 하는가?

Tip 1)유동이없는부분에 scouring이나타나는이유:

현재 scouring model은 물에잠겨있는 부분에 대해 해석을 하게되어 있으므로 packed sediment부분은 fluid region(with infinite drag)이 존재하게됩니다. 그러므로 fluid region이 없다 하더라도 packed sediment가 경사면에 존재하면 중력에 의해  내부유체의 유동이 생겨 위 예제와 같이 미소한  scouring이 표면에 물이 없는 경사면에서도 발생하는것입니다. 그러므로 이를 없애기 위해서는 물이 없는 경사면 부분은 별도의 solid로 규정하면 이 문제를 피할수 있습니다.

Tip2 ) clay가 sticky하면 일반적으로 유동의 상대운동이 감소될것이므로 drag coefficient 나 Richardson Zaki coefficient multiplier를 증가시켜 변화를 조사해 볼 수 있습니다.

오늘날의 조직은 오래되고, 잘 구축되었으며, 빠르게 성장하는 새로운 경제로부터 점점 더 많은 압박을 받고 있습니다. 시장의 세계화는 기업들이 그들의 경쟁 우위를 유지하기 위한 방안을 찾고 있습니다. 인터넷 기술의 급격한 발전과 자유로운 정보 교환은 기업이 경쟁 우위를 유지할 수 있는 기간을 단축하는 요인들입니다. 조직이 업계에서 선두 자리를 유지할 수 있는 방법 중 하나는 혁신기술을 시장에 도입하는데 필요한 시간을 줄이는 것입니다. 다이캐스팅 공정 개발 시간 단축이라는 목표를 가지고, FLOW-3D로 모델링하는 것은 Shiloh Industries의 엔지니어링 부서의 핵심 부분이 되었습니다.

우리는 7년이 넘게 다이캐스팅 모델링 도구인 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 예측 결과의 정확성과 신뢰성을 입증할 수 있었습니다. 이러한 결과는 실제 주조 결함, 온도 분포 및 흐름 패턴과 좋은 상관 관계를 가지고 있습니다.

Shiloh Industries의 새로운 프로젝트는 게이트와 러너의 컨셉개발에서 시작되며 대략적인 slow shot profile, shot 실린더 직경, 최소 환기 영역 및 프로세스압력 요구 조건사항이 필요합니다. 유동분석은 최상의 유동패턴을 개발하고 공기 유입을 최소화하기 위해 수행됩니다. 러너설계가 완료된 후 열 분석을 실행하여 waterline 배치를 최적화합니다

Figure 1: The casting part

FLOW-3D의 매력적인 특징은 프로세스의 단계마다 별도의 분석을 실행할 수 있는 기능입니다. 이를 통해 올바른 shot 프로파일, 게이트 디자인 및 워터 라인 위치를 선택할 수 있습니다. 완전히 결합된 흐름과 열 분석은 모든 구성 요소가 잘 작동하는지 확인하기 위해 한번만 수행하면 됩니다. GMO(움직이는 물체)모델을 도입하면 저속 촬영단계에서 샷 슬리브의 최고 플런저 속도를 설정할 수 있습니다. 여기에 설명된 프로젝트에서 부품 설계는 현재 생산 버전에서 크게 변경되었습니다.

부품 형상은 그림 1에 나와 있습니다. 요구되는 주조 품질을 보장하기 위해 충전 및 응고 과정에서 어려움이 있습니다. 예를 들어, 응고 및 후속 냉각 중에 높은 내부 응력이 발생하여 바람직하지 않은 변형력이 발생할 수 있습니다.

설계 프로세스의 초기 단계에서 평가를 위해 21 개의 러너 구성이 제안되었습니다. FLOW-3D는 모든 변형을 평가하는데 사용되었습니다. 그림 2는 고려된 주 디자인 중 일부를 보여줍니다.

Figure 2: Three of the twenty-one runner systems modeled in FLOW-3D

러너 시스템의 초기 평가 기준은 유동패턴이었습니다. 설계 프로세스의 첫 번째 단계가 완료된 후, 추가 평가를 위해 그림 3에 표시된 두 가지의 러너 설계가 추가평가를 위해 채택되었습니다.

Figure 3: Runners selected for further evaluation based on the flow pattern 

응고 분석은 두 번째 단계에서 평가하였습니다. 주조물뿐만 아니라 다이의 온도 분포도 분석하였습니다. 그림 4는 최종 러너 시스템 설계를 하여 응고가 끝날 때 부품의 온도 분포를 보여줍니다.

Figure 4: Different views of the final runner system chosen based on temperature distribution in the part at the end of solidification

Conclusion

7년이 넘는 기간 동안 우리는 다이 캐스팅공정 도구인 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 예측 결과의 정확성과 신뢰성을 입증할 수 있었습니다. 이러한 결과는 실제 주조 결함, 온도 분포 및 흐름 패턴과 좋은 상관 관계를 가지고 있습니다.

우리는 다이 캐스팅 공정 시뮬레이션뿐만 아니라 일반적인 CFD 모델링도 FLOW-3D를 사용하고 있습니다. 프로세스 개발 중에 설계 변경을 고객에게 권장해야 하는 경우 FLOW-3D를 사용하면 이러한 변경 사항을 신속하고 안정적으로 평가할 수 있으며 제안된 변경 사항뿐만 아니라 변경사항이 부품 성능에 미칠 영향을 고객에게 제시할 수 있습니다.

시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 설계자와 엔지니어가 주조 공정의 세부 사항을 이해하고 경쟁사보다 저렴한 비용으로 고품질 부품을 일관성 있게 제작할 수 있게 해주는 유용한 도구입니다. 고압 다이캐스팅에서 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 주조 내로 금속을 공급하고 난류로 인한 공기 유입을 방지하기 위해 샷 슬리브 팁의 타이밍을 개선하고 오버 플로우에 대한 가장 효과적인 위치를 식별하는 더 나은 게이팅 시스템을 설계하는 데 사용됩니다. 이 기사에서는 프로세스 시간을 단축하기 위해 부품을 다이에서 배출하기 전에 시간을 줄이는 방법을 살펴 보겠습니다.

비스킷은 주조 과정에서 고형화 된 마지막 장소이기 때문에 우리의 노력에 집중할 수 있는 자연스러운 곳이며 따라서 부품을 언제 꺼낼 수 있는지를 결정합니다. 따라서 비스킷의 응고 시간을 줄일 수 있다면 전반적인 공정 시간을 줄일 수 있습니다. 이를 수행하는 한 가지 방법은 유체와 접촉하는 영역의 양을 늘려 샷팁을 통해 금속에서 더 많은 열을 제거하는 것입니다. 이 경우 정확하게 적용할 수는 없지만, 아래에 표시된 정상상태 대류 방정식을 사용하면 이 접근법의 기초가 가장 쉽게 표시됩니다.

이 방정식에서 열 흐름은 대류 열 전달 계수이고, 금속 팁과 샷 팁 온도의 차이이며, 금속과 접촉하는 샷 팁의 표면적입니다. 그림 1에서 볼 수 있듯이 오늘날 시장에서 볼 수 있는 다양한 형태의 플런저 팁이 금속과 접촉하는 표면적을 증가시키도록 설계되었습니다.

Figure 1: Plunger tips varying in size and surface area [1]

비스킷에서 제거된 열을 증가시키는 또 다른 방법은 비스켓에서 샷 팁과 금속 사이의 온도 차이를 조절하는 것입니다. 이는 그림 2 에서처럼 냉각 선을 팁에 추가하여 수행됩니다. 이 접근법의 단점은 피스톤 어셈블리에 상당한 복잡성을 추가한다는 것입니다.

Figure 2: Cooling within plunger tip [2]

New design

이 기사에서 FLOW-3D Cast를 사용하여 새로운 플런저 팁 디자인을 분석하고 수정되지 않은 표준 원통형 팁과 비교했습니다. 그림 3에서와 같이 끝 부분에 별 모양의 컷 아웃이 있는 원통형 팁으로 구성된 수정된 팁은 수정되지 않은 샷 팁보다 20 % 더 많은 표면적을 갖습니다. 팁은 분석을 위해 물로 냉각되지 않습니다.

Figure 3: Shape of the modified tip to give 20% increase in area

 

Analysis

각 샷 팁 디자인에 대해 충진 (샷 팁 모션 포함) 및 응고 (플로우 미포함) 시뮬레이션을 실행했습니다. 모든 다른 매개 변수는 사례간에 동일합니다. 주요 관심사는 두 가지입니다. 즉, 충전 중 흐름 패턴과 전반적인 응고 시간입니다. 샷 팁 디자인이 파동 및 공기 유입을 유발하는 경우 팁 또는 샷 슬리브 프로파일을 다시 설계해야 하기 때문에 충진 중 흐름 패턴이 중요합니다.

첫 번째 비교는 그림 4에 표시된 샷 슬리브의 흐름 패턴입니다. 이 그림은 수정 된 팁이 있거나 없는 샷 슬리브 중 유체의 이미지를 보여 주며 팁의 모양이 샷 슬리브에 영향을 주지 않는 것으로 나타났습니다. 흐름 패턴. 샷 프로파일에 거의 영향을 주지 않기 때문에 응고에 집중할 수 있습니다.

Figure 4: Flow patterns in the shot sleeves from both tips.

 

두 번째 비교는 응고 시간입니다. 그림 5는 시간의 함수로서 팁의 평균 온도, 시간의 함수로서 금속으로부터 팁으로의 열 유속 및 추출시의 액체 금속의 온도 프로파일을 비교합니다

Figure 5: The above time plots show the average temperature in tip on the upper left hand corner and the heat flux from the metal to the tip in the upper right hand corner. The images below this show the metal temperature within the biscuit of the two castings.

그림 5에서 볼 수 있듯이, 그래프는 금속에서 더 많은 열을 추출했기 때문에 수정 된 팁의 평균 온도가 더 높음을 보여줍니다. 이것은 또한 열 유속 플롯에 표시됩니다. 그래프 아래의 이미지는 비스킷과 탄환의 경계면에서 액체금속을 보여줍니다. 데이터는 수정된 팁을 사용하여 열 제거가 12.7 % 증가한 것을 보여줍니다.

Conclusions

샷 팁 디자인은 주조 부품의 응고 시간에 눈에 띄는 영향을 미칩니다. 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 효과를 분석하고 이 지식을 사용하여 프로세스 매개변수를 최적화하는 방법을 제공합니다.
