Abstract

높은 파도 진폭은 해안선에 위험한 영향을 미치고 해안 복원력을 약화시킬 수 있습니다. 그러나 다중 다공성 매체는 해양 생태계의 환경 친화적인 해안 보호 역할을 할 수 있습니다.

이 논문에서 우리는 n개의 잠긴 다공성 미디어 블록이 있는 영역에서 파동 진폭 감소를 계산하기 위해 3층 깊이 통합 방정식을 사용합니다. 수학적 모델은 파동 전달 계수를 얻기 위해 여러 행렬 방정식을 포함하는 변수 분리 방법을 사용하여 해석적으로 해결됩니다.

이 계수는 진폭 감소의 크기에 대한 정보를 제공합니다. 또한 모델을 수치적으로 풀기 위해 지그재그 유한 체적 방법이 적용됩니다.

수치 시뮬레이션을 통해 다공성 매질 블록의 구성과 특성이 투과파 진폭을 줄이는 데 중요하다는 결론을 내렸습니다.

High wave amplitudes may cause dangerous effects on the shoreline and weaken coastal resilience. However, multiple porous media can act as environmental friendly coastal protectors of the marine ecosystem. In this paper, we use three-layer depth-integrated equations to calculate wave amplitude reduction in a domain with n submerged porous media blocks. The mathematical model is solved analytically using the separation of variables method involving several matrix equations to obtain the wave transmission coefficient. This coefficient provides information about the magnitude of amplitude reduction. Additionally, a staggered finite volume method is applied to solve the model numerically. By conducting numerical simulations, we conclude that porous media blocks’ configuration and characteristics are crucial in reducing transmitted wave amplitude.

Abstract

천해 방정식을 기반으로 하는 2차원 흐름 모델은 댐 붕괴 흐름을 모델링하기 위해 개발되었습니다. 공간 이산화는 유한 체적 셀 중심 유형 방법에 의해 얻어집니다.

수치 시스템은 명시적인 방식으로 해결됩니다. 플럭스 모델링은 시간과 공간 모두에서 2차 정확도로 TVD WAF 방식으로 배포되었습니다. 로컬 리만 문제는 셀 인터페이스에서 HLLC 방법으로 해결됩니다. 수치 모델은 모델 결과와 해석 솔루션을 비교하여 검증합니다.

그런 다음 수치 모델의 결과는 90° 및 180° 편차 각도를 갖는 수로 및 삼각형 바텀 씰 위의 직선 수로에서 사용 가능한 실험 데이터와 비교됩니다. 결과는 댐 파괴파를 예측하는 현재 모델의 합리적인 성능을 확인합니다.

A two-dimensional flow model based on shallow water equations is developed for modeling dam-break flows. The spatial discretization is obtained by the finite volume cell centered type method. The numerical system is solved in explicit way. The flux modeling has been deployed by TVD WAF scheme with a second-order accuracy in both time and space. The local Riemann problem is solved by the HLLC method in the interface of the cells. The numerical model is verified by comparison of model results and analytical solutions. Then the results of numerical model are compared with available experimental data of dam-break waves in a channel with 90° and 180° deviation angle and in a straight channel over a triangular bottom sill. The results confirm the reasonable performance of the present model in predicting dam-break waves.

Investigating the peak outflow through a spatial embankment dam breach

Abstract

Investigating the breach outflow hydrograph is an essential task to conduct mitigation plans and flood warnings. In the present study, the spatial dam breach is simulated by using a three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics model, FLOW-3D. The model parameters were adjusted by making a comparison with a previous experimental model. The different parameters (initial breach shape, dimensions, location, and dam slopes) are studied to investigate their effects on dam breaching. The results indicate that these parameters have a significant impact. The maximum erosion rate and peak outflow for the rectangular shape are higher than those for the V-notch by 8.85% and 5%, respectively. Increasing breach width or decreasing depth by 5% leads to increasing maximum erosion rate by 11% and 15%, respectively. Increasing the downstream slope angle by 4° leads to an increase in both peak outflow and maximum erosion rate by 2.0% and 6.0%, respectively.

유출 유출 수문곡선을 조사하는 것은 완화 계획 및 홍수 경보를 수행하는 데 필수적인 작업입니다. 본 연구에서는 3차원 전산유체역학 모델인 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 공간 댐 붕괴를 시뮬레이션합니다. 이전 실험 모델과 비교하여 모델 매개변수를 조정했습니다.

다양한 매개변수(초기 붕괴 형태, 치수, 위치 및 댐 경사)가 댐 붕괴에 미치는 영향을 조사하기 위해 연구됩니다. 결과는 이러한 매개변수가 상당한 영향을 미친다는 것을 나타냅니다. 직사각형 형태의 최대 침식율과 최대 유출량은 V-notch보다 각각 8.85%, 5% 높게 나타났습니다.

위반 폭을 늘리거나 깊이를 5% 줄이면 최대 침식률이 각각 11% 및 15% 증가합니다. 하류 경사각을 4° 증가시키면 최대 유출량과 최대 침식률이 각각 2.0% 및 6.0% 증가합니다.

1. Introduction

There are many purposes for dam construction, such as protection from flood disasters, water storage, and power generationEmbankment failures may have a catastrophic impact on lives and infrastructure in the downstream regions. One of the most common causes of embankment dam failure is overtopping. Once the overtopping of the dam begins, the breach formation will start in the dam body then end with the dam failure. This failure occurs within a very short time, which threatens to be very dangerous. Therefore, understanding and modeling the embankment breaching processes is essential for conducting mitigation plans, flood warnings, and forecasting flood damage.

The analysis of the dam breaching process is implemented by different techniques: comparative methods, empirical models with dimensional and dimensionless solutions, physical-based models, and parametric models. These models were described in detail [1]Parametric modeling is commonly used to simulate breach growth as a time-dependent linear process and calculate outflow discharge from the breach using hydraulics principles [2]. Alhasan et al. [3] presented a simple one-dimensional mathematical model and a computer code to simulate the dam breaching process. These models were validated by small dams breaching during the floods in 2002 in the Czech Republic. Fread [4] developed an erosion model (BREACH) based on hydraulics principles, sediment transport, and soil mechanics to estimate breach size, time of formation, and outflow discharge. Říha et al. [5] investigated the dam break process for a cascade of small dams using a simple parametric model for piping and overtopping erosion, as well as a 2D shallow-water flow model for the flood in downstream areas. Goodarzi et al. [6] implemented mathematical and statistical methods to assess the effect of inflows and wind speeds on the dam’s overtopping failure.

Dam breaching studies can be divided into two main modes of erosion. The first mode is called “planar dam breach” where the flow overtops the whole dam width. While the second mode is called “spatial dam breach” where the flow overtops through the initial pilot channel (i.e., a channel created in the dam body). Therefore, the erosion will be in both vertical and horizontal directions [7].

The erosion process through the embankment dams occurs due to the shear stress applied by water flows. The dam breaching evolution can be divided into three stages [8][9], but Y. Yang et al. [10] divided the breach development into five stages: Stage I, the seepage erosion; Stage II, the initial breach formation; Stage III, the head erosion; Stage IV, the breach expansion; and Stage V, the re-equilibrium of the river channel through the breach. Many experimental tests have been carried out on non-cohesive embankment dams with an initial breach to examine the effect of upstream inflow discharges on the longitudinal profile evolution and the time to inflection point [11].

Zhang et al. [12] studied the effect of changing downstream slope angle, sediment grain size, and dam crest length on erosion rates. They noticed that increasing dam crest length and decreasing downstream slope angle lead to decreasing sediment transport rate. While the increase in sediment grain size leads to an increased sediment transport rate at the initial stages. Höeg et al. [13] presented a series of field tests to investigate the stability of embankment dams made of various materials. Overtopping and piping were among the failure tests carried out for the dams composed of homogeneous rock-fill, clay, or gravel with a height of up to 6.0 m. Hakimzadeh et al. [14] constructed 40 homogeneous cohesive and non-cohesive embankment dams to study the effect of changing sediment diameter and dam height on the breaching process. They also used genetic programming (GP) to estimate the breach outflow. Refaiy et al. [15] studied different scenarios for the downstream drain geometry, such as length, height, and angle, to minimize the effect of piping phenomena and therefore increase dam safety.

Zhu et al. [16] examined the effect of headcut erosion on dam breach growth, especially in the case of cohesive dams. They found that the breach growth in non-cohesive embankments is slower than cohesive embankments due to the little effect of headcut. Schmocker and Hager [7] proposed a relationship for estimating peak outflow from the dam breach process.(1)QpQin-1=1.7exp-20hc23d5013H0

where: Qp = peak outflow discharge.

Qin = inflow discharge.

hc = critical flow depth.

d50 = mean sediment diameter.

Ho = initial dam height.

Yu et al. [17] carried out an experimental study for homogeneous non-cohesive embankment dams in a 180° bending rectangular flume to determine the effect of overtopping flows on breaching formation. They found that the main factors influencing breach formation are water level, river discharge, and embankment material diameter.

Wu et al. [18] carried out a series of experiments to investigate the effect of breaching geometry on both non-cohesive and cohesive embankment dams in a U-bend flume due to overtopping flows. In the case of non-cohesive embankments, the non-symmetrical lateral expansion was noticed during the breach formation. This expansion was described by a coefficient ranging from 2.7 to 3.3.

The numerical models of the dam breach can be categorized according to different parameters, such as flow dimensions (1D, 2D, or 3D), flow governing equations, and solution methods. The 1D models are mainly used to predict the outflow hydrograph from the dam breach. Saberi et al. [19] applied the 1D Saint-Venant equation, which is solved by the finite difference method to investigate the outflow hydrograph during dam overtopping failure. Because of the ability to study dam profile evolution and breach formation, 2D models are more applicable than 1D models. Guan et al. [20] and Wu et al. [21] employed both 2D shallow water equations (SWEs) and sediment erosion equations, which are solved by the finite volume method to study the effect of the dam’s geometry parameters on outflow hydrograph and dam profile evolution. Wang et al. [22] also proposed a second-order hybrid-type of total variation diminishing (TVD) finite-difference to estimate the breach outflow by solving the 2D (SWEs). The accuracy of (SWEs) for both vertical flow contraction and surface roughness has been assessed [23]. They noted that the accuracy of (SWEs) is acceptable for milder slopes, but in the case of steeper slopes, modelers should be more careful. Generally, the accuracy of 2D models is still low, especially with velocity distribution over the flow depth, lateral momentum exchange, density-driven flows, and bottom friction [24]. Therefore, 3D models are preferred. Larocque et al. [25] and Yang et al. [26] started to use three-dimensional (3D) models that depend on the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations.

Previous experimental studies concluded that there is no clear relationship between the peak outflow from the dam breach and the initial breach characteristics. Some of these studies depend on the sharp-crested weir fixed at the end of the flume to determine the peak outflow from the breach, which leads to a decrease in the accuracy of outflow calculations at the microscale. The main goals of this study are to carry out a numerical simulation for a spatial dam breach due to overtopping flows by using (FLOW-3D) software to find an empirical equation for the peak outflow discharge from the breach and determine the worst-case that leads to accelerating the dam breaching process.

2. Numerical simulation

The current study for spatial dam breach is simulated by using (FLOW-3D) software [27], which is a powerful computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program.

2.1. Geometric presentations

A stereolithographic (STL) file is prepared for each change in the initial breach geometry and dimensions. The CAD program is useful for creating solid objects and converting them to STL format, as shown in Fig. 1.

2.2. Governing equations

The governing equations for water flow are three-dimensional Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations (RANS).

The continuity equation:(2)∂ui∂xi=0

The momentum equation:(3)∂ui∂t+1VFuj∂ui∂xj=1ρ∂∂xj-pδij+ν∂ui∂xj+∂uj∂xi-ρu`iu`j¯

where u is time-averaged velocity,ν is kinematic viscosity, VF is fractional volume open to flow, p is averaged pressure and -u`iu`j¯ are components of Reynold’s stress. The Volume of Fluid (VOF) technique is used to simulate the free surface profile. Hirt et al. [28] presented the VOF algorithm, which employs the function (F) to express the occupancy of each grid cell with fluid. The value of (F) varies from zero to unity. Zero value refers to no fluid in the grid cell, while the unity value refers to the grid cell being fully occupied with fluid. The free surface is formed in the grid cells having (F) values between zero and unity.(4)∂F∂t+1VF∂∂xFAxu+∂∂yFAyv+∂∂zFAzw=0

where (u, v, w) are the velocity components in (x, y, z) coordinates, respectively, and (AxAyAz) are the area fractions.

2.3. Boundary and initial conditions

To improve the accuracy of the results, the boundary conditions should be carefully determined. In this study, two mesh blocks are used to minimize the time consumed in the simulation. The boundary conditions for mesh block 1 are as follows: The inlet and sides boundaries are defined as a wall boundary condition (wall boundary condition is usually used for bound fluid by solid regions. In the case of viscous flows, no-slip means that the tangential velocity is equal to the wall velocity and the normal velocity is zero), the outlet is defined as a symmetry boundary condition (symmetry boundary condition is usually used to reduce computational effort during CFD simulation. This condition allows the flow to be transferred from one mesh block to another. No inputs are required for this boundary condition except that its location should be defined accurately), the bottom boundary is defined as a uniform flow rate boundary condition, and the top boundary is defined as a specific pressure boundary condition with assigned atmospheric pressure. The boundary conditions for mesh block 2 are as follows: The inlet is defined as a symmetry boundary condition, the outlet is defined as a free flow boundary condition, the bottom and sides boundaries are defined as a wall boundary condition, and the top boundary is defined as a specific pressure boundary condition with assigned atmospheric pressure as shown in Fig. 2. The initial conditions required to be set for the fluid (i.e., water) inside of the domain include configuration, temperature, velocities, and pressure distribution. The configuration of water depends on the dimensions and shape of the dam reservoir. While the other conditions have been assigned as follows: temperature is normal water temperature (25 °c) and pressure distribution is hydrostatic with no initial velocity.

2.4. Numerical method

FLOW-3D uses the finite volume method (FVM) to solve the governing equation (Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes) over the computational domain. A finite-volume method is an Eulerian approach for representing and evaluating partial differential equations in algebraic equations form [29]. At discrete points on the mesh geometry, values are determined. Finite volume expresses a small volume surrounding each node point on a mesh. In this method, the divergence theorem is used to convert volume integrals with a divergence term to surface integrals. After that, these terms are evaluated as fluxes at each finite volume’s surfaces.

2.5. Turbulent models

Turbulence is the chaotic, unstable motion of fluids that occurs when there are insufficient stabilizing viscous forces. In FLOW-3D, there are six turbulence models available: the Prandtl mixing length model, the one-equation turbulent energy model, the two-equation (k – ε) model, the Renormalization-Group (RNG) model, the two-equation (k – ω) models, and a large eddy simulation (LES) model. For simulating flow motion, the RNG model is adopted to simulate the motion behavior better than the k – ε and k – ω.

models [30]. The RNG model consists of two main equations for the turbulent kinetic energy KT and its dissipation.εT(5)∂kT∂t+1VFuAx∂kT∂x+vAy∂kT∂y+wAz∂kT∂z=PT+GT+DiffKT-εT(6)∂εT∂t+1VFuAx∂εT∂x+vAy∂εT∂y+wAz∂εT∂z=C1.εTKTPT+c3.GT+Diffε-c2εT2kT

where KT is the turbulent kinetic energy, PT is the turbulent kinetic energy production, GT is the buoyancy turbulence energy, εT is the turbulent energy dissipation rate, DiffKT and Diffε are terms of diffusion, c1, c2 and c3 are dimensionless parameters, in which c1 and c3 have a constant value of 1.42 and 0.2, respectively, c2 is computed from the turbulent kinetic energy (KT) and turbulent production (PT) terms.

2.6. Sediment scour model

The sediment scour model available in FLOW-3D can calculate all the sediment transport processes including Entrainment transport, Bedload transport, Suspended transport, and Deposition. The erosion process starts once the water flows remove the grains from the packed bed and carry them into suspension. It happens when the applied shear stress by water flows exceeds critical shear stress. This process is represented by entrainment transport in the numerical model. After entrained, the grains carried by water flow are represented by suspended load transport. After that, some suspended grains resort to settling because of the combined effect of gravity, buoyancy, and friction. This process is described through a deposition. Finally, the grains sliding motions are represented by bedload transport in the model. For the entrainment process, the shear stress applied by the fluid motion on the packed bed surface is calculated using the standard wall function as shown in Eq.7.(7)ks,i=Cs,i∗d50

where ks,i is the Nikuradse roughness and Cs,i is a user-defined coefficient. The critical bed shear stress is defined by a dimensionless parameter called the critical shields number as expressed in Eq.8.(8)θcr,i=τcr,i‖g‖diρi-ρf

where θcr,i is the critical shields number, τcr,i is the critical bed shear stress, g is the absolute value of gravity acceleration, di is the diameter of the sediment grain, ρi is the density of the sediment species (i) and ρf is the density of the fluid. The value of the critical shields number is determined according to the Soulsby-Whitehouse equation.(9)θcr,i=0.31+1.2d∗,i+0.0551-exp-0.02d∗,i

where d∗,i is the dimensionless diameter of the sediment, given by Eq.10.(10)d∗,i=diρfρi-ρf‖g‖μf213

where μf is the fluid dynamic viscosity. For the sloping bed interface, the value of the critical shields number is modified according to Eq.11.(11)θ`cr,i=θcr,icosψsinβ+cos2βtan2φi-sin2ψsin2βtanφi

where θ`cr,i is the modified critical shields number, φi is the angle of repose for the sediment, β is the angle of bed slope and ψ is the angle between the flow and the upslope direction. The effects of the rolling, hopping, and sliding motions of grains along the packed bed surface are taken by the bedload transport process. The volumetric bedload transport rate (qb,i) per width of the bed is expressed in Eq.12.(12)qb,i=Φi‖g‖ρi-ρfρfdi312

where Φi is the dimensionless bedload transport rate is calculated by using Meyer Peter and Müller equation.(13)Φi=βMPM,iθi-θ`cr,i1.5cb,i

where βMPM,i is the Meyer Peter and Müller user-defined coefficient and cb,i is the volume fraction of species i in the bed material. The suspended load transport is calculated as shown in Eq.14.(14)∂Cs,i∂t+∇∙Cs,ius,i=∇∙∇DCs,i

where Cs,i is the suspended sediment mass concentration, D is the diffusivity, and us,i is the grain velocity of species i. Entrainment and deposition are two opposing processes that take place at the same time. The lifting and settling velocities for both entrainment and deposition processes are calculated according to Eq.15 and Eq.16, respectively.(15)ulifting,i=αid∗,i0.3θi-θ`cr,igdiρiρf-1(16)usettling,i=υfdi10.362+1.049d∗,i3-10.36

where αi is the entrainment coefficient of species i and υf is the kinematic viscosity of the fluid.

2.7. Grid type

Using simple rectangular orthogonal elements in planes and hexahedral in volumes in the (FLOW-3D) program makes the mesh generation process easier, decreases the required memory, and improves numerical accuracy. Two mesh blocks were used in a joined form with a size ratio of 2:1. The first mesh block is coarser, which contains the reservoir water, and the second mesh block is finer, which contains the dam. For achieving accuracy and efficiency in results, the mesh size is determined by using a grid convergence test. The optimum uniform cell size for the first mesh block is 0.012 m and for the second mesh block is 0.006 m.

2.8. Time step

The maximum time step size is determined by using a Courant number, which controls the distance that the flow will travel during the simulation time step. In this study, the Courant number was taken equal to 0.25 to prevent the flow from traveling through more than one cell in the time step. Based on the Courant number, a maximum time step value of 0.00075 s was determined.

2.9. Numerical model validation

The numerical model accuracy was achieved by comparing the numerical model results with previous experimental results. The experimental study of Schmocker and Hager [7] was based on 31 tests with changes in six parameters (d50, Ho, Bo, Lk, XD, and Qin). All experimental tests were conducted in a straight open glass-sided flume. The horizontal flume has a rectangular cross-section with a width of 0.4 m and a height of 0.7 m. The flume was provided with a flow straightener and an intake with a length of 0.66 m. All tested dams were inserted at various distances (XD) from the intake. Test No.1 from this experimental program was chosen to validate the numerical model. The different parameters used in test No.1 are as follows:

(1) uniform sediment with a mean diameter (d50 = 0.31 mm), (2) Ho = 0.2 m, (3) Bo = 0.2 m, (4) Lk = 0.1 m,

(5) XD = 1.0 m, (6) Qin = 6.0 lit/s, (7) Su and Sd = 2:1, (8) mass density (ρs = 2650 kg/m3(9) Homogenous and non-cohesive embankment dam. As shown in Fig. 2, the simulation is contained within a rectangular grid with dimensions: 3.56 m in the x-direction (where 0.66 m is used as inlet, 0.9 m as dam base width, and 1.0 m as outlet), in y-direction 0.2 m (dam length), and in the z-direction 0.3 m, which represents the dam height (0.2 m) with a free distance (0.1 m) above the dam. There are two main reasons that this experimental program is preferred for the validation process. The first reason is that this program deals with homogenous, non-cohesive soil, which is available in FLOW-3D. The second reason is that this program deals with small-scale models which saves time for numerical simulation. Finally, some important assumptions were considered during the validation process. The flow is assumed to be incompressible, viscous, turbulent, and three-dimensional.

By comparing dam profiles at different time instants for the experimental test with the current numerical model, it appears that the numerical model gives good agreement as shown in Fig. 3 and Fig. 4, with an average error percentage of 9% between the experimental results and the numerical model.

3. Analysis and discussions

The current model is used to study the effects of different parameters such as (initial breach shapes, dimensions, locations, upstream and downstream dam slopes) on the peak outflow discharge, QP, time of peak outflow, tP, and rate of erosion, E.

This study consists of a group of scenarios. The first scenario is changing the shapes of the initial breach according to Singh [1], the most predicted shapes are rectangular and V-notch as shown in Fig. 5. The second scenario is changing the initial breach dimensions (i.e., width and depth). While the third scenario is changing the location of the initial breach. Eventually, the last scenario is changing the upstream and downstream dam slopes.

All scenarios of this study were carried out under the same conditions such as inflow discharge value (Qin=1.0lit/s), dimensions of the tested dam, where dam height (Ho=0.20m), crest width.

(Lk=0.1m), dam length (Bo=0.20m), and homogenous & non-cohesive soil with a mean diameter (d50=0.31mm).

3.1. Dam breaching process evolution

The dam breaching process is a very complex process due to the quick changes in hydrodynamic conditions during dam failure. The dam breaching process starts once water flows reach the downstream face of the dam. During the initial stage of dam breaching, the erosion process is relatively quiet due to low velocities of flow. As water flows continuously, erosion rates increase, especially in two main zones: the crest and the downstream face. As soon as the dam crest is totally eroded, the water levels in the dam reservoir decrease rapidly, accompanied by excessive erosion in the dam body. The erosion process continues until the water levels in the dam reservoir equal the remaining height of the dam.

According to Zhou et al. [11], the breaching process consists of three main stages. The first stage starts with beginning overtopping flow, then ends when the erosion point directed upstream and reached the inflection point at the inflection time (ti). The second stage starts from the end of the stage1 until the occurrence of peak outflow discharge at the peak outflow time (tP). The third stage starts from the end of the stage2 until the value of outflow discharge becomes the same as the value of inflow discharge at the final time (tf). The outflow discharge from the dam breach increases rapidly during stage1 and stage2 because of the large dam storage capacity (i.e., the dam reservoir is totally full of water) and excessive erosion. While at stage3, the outflow values start to decrease slowly because most of the dam’s storage capacity was run out. The end of stage3 indicates that the dam storage capacity was totally run out, so the outflow equalized with the inflow discharge as shown in Fig. 6 and Fig. 7.

3.2. The effect of initial breach shape

To identify the effect of the initial breach shape on the evolution of the dam breaching process. Three tests were carried out with different cross-section areas for each shape. The initial breach is created at the center of the dam crest. Each test had an ID to make the process of arranging data easier. The rectangular shape had an ID (Rec5h & 5b), which means that its depth and width are equal to 5% of the dam height, and the V-notch shape had an ID (V-noch5h & 1:1) which means that its depth is equal to 5% of the dam height and its side slope is equal to 1:1. The comparison between rectangular and V-notch shapes is done by calculating the ratio between maximum dam height at different times (ZMax) to the initial dam height (Ho), rate of erosion, and hydrograph of outflow discharge for each test. The rectangular shape achieves maximum erosion rate and minimum inflection time, in addition to a rapid decrease in the dam reservoir levels. Therefore, the dam breaching is faster in the case of a rectangular shape than in a V-notch shape, which has the same cross-section area as shown in Fig. 8.

Also, by comparing the hydrograph for each test, the peak outflow discharge value in the case of a rectangular shape is higher than the V-notch shape by 5% and the time of peak outflow for the rectangular shape is shorter than the V-notch shape by 9% as shown in Fig. 9.

3.3. The effect of initial breach dimensions

The results of the comparison between the different initial breach shapes indicate that the worst initial breach shape is rectangular, so the second scenario from this study concentrated on studying the effect of a change in the initial rectangular breach dimensions. Groups of tests were carried out with different depths and widths for the rectangular initial breach. The first group had a depth of 5% from the dam height and with three different widths of 5,10, and 15% from the dam height, the second group had a depth of 10% with three different widths of 5,10, and 15%, the third group had a depth of 15% with three different widths of 5,10, and 15% and the final group had a width of 15% with three different heights of 5, 10, and 15% for a rectangular breach shape. The comparison was made as in the previous section to determine the worst case that leads to the quick dam failure as shown in Fig. 10.

The results show that the (Rec 5 h&15b) test achieves a maximum erosion rate for a shorter period of time and a minimum ratio for (Zmax / Ho) as shown in Fig. 10, which leads to accelerating the dam failure process. The dam breaching process is faster with the minimum initial breach depth and maximum initial breach width. In the case of a minimum initial breach depth, the retained head of water in the dam reservoir is high and the crest width at the bottom of the initial breach (L`K) is small, so the erosion point reaches the inflection point rapidly. While in the case of the maximum initial breach width, the erosion perimeter is large.

3.4. The effect of initial breach location

The results of the comparison between the different initial rectangular breach dimensions indicate that the worst initial breach dimension is (Rec 5 h&15b), so the third scenario from this study concentrated on studying the effect of a change in the initial breach location. Three locations were checked to determine the worst case for the dam failure process. The first location is at the center of the dam crest, which was named “Center”, the second location is at mid-distance between the dam center and dam edge, which was named “Mid”, and the third location is at the dam edge, which was named “Edge” as shown in Fig. 11. According to this scenario, the results indicate that the time of peak outflow discharge (tP) is the same in the three cases, but the maximum value of the peak outflow discharge occurs at the center location. The difference in the peak outflow values between the three cases is relatively small as shown in Fig. 12.

The rates of erosion were also studied for the three cases. The results show that the maximum erosion rate occurs at the center location as shown in Fig. 13. By making a comparison between the three cases for the dam storage volume. The results show that the center location had the minimum values for the dam storage volume, which means that a large amount of water has passed to the downstream area as shown in Fig. 14. According to these results, the center location leads to increased erosion rate and accelerated dam failure process compared with the two other cases. Because the erosion occurs on both sides, but in the case of edge location, the erosion occurs on one side.

3.5. The effect of upstream and downstream dam slopes

The results of the comparison between the different initial rectangular breach locations indicate that the worst initial breach location is the center location, so the fourth scenario from this study concentrated on studying the effect of a change in the upstream (Su) and downstream (Sd) dam slopes. Three slopes were checked individually for both upstream and downstream slopes to determine the worst case for the dam failure process. The first slope value is (2H:1V), the second slope value is (2.5H:1V), and the third slope value is (3H:1V). According to this scenario, the results show that the decreasing downstream slope angle leads to increasing time of peak outflow discharge (tP) and decreasing value of peak outflow discharge. The difference in the peak outflow values between the three cases for the downstream slope is 2%, as shown in Fig. 15, but changing the upstream slope has a negligible impact on the peak outflow discharge and its time as shown in Fig. 16.

The rates of erosion were also studied in the three cases for both upstream and downstream slopes. The results show that the maximum erosion rate increases by 6.0% with an increasing downstream slope angle by 4°, as shown in Fig. 17. The results also indicate that the erosion rates aren’t affected by increasing or decreasing the upstream slope angle, as shown in Fig. 18. According to these results, increasing the downstream slope angle leads to increased erosion rate and accelerated dam failure process compared with the upstream slope angle. Because of increasing shear stress applied by water flows in case of increasing downstream slope.

According to all previous scenarios, the dimensionless peak outflow discharge QPQin is presented for a fixed dam height (Ho) and inflow discharge (Qin). Fig. 19 illustrates the relationship between QP∗=QPQin and.

Lr=ho2/3∗bo2/3Ho. The deduced relationship achieves R2=0.96.(17)QP∗=2.2807exp-2.804∗Lr

4. Conclusions

A spatial dam breaching process was simulated by using FLOW-3D Software. The validation process was performed by making a comparison between the simulated results of dam profiles and the dam profiles obtained by Schmocker and Hager [7] in their experimental study. And also, the peak outflow value recorded an error percentage of 12% between the numerical model and the experimental study. This model was used to study the effect of initial breach shape, dimensions, location, and dam slopes on peak outflow discharge, time of peak outflow, and the erosion process. By using the parameters obtained from the validation process, the results of this study can be summarized in eight points as follows.1.

The rectangular initial breach shape leads to an accelerating dam failure process compared with the V-notch.2.

The value of peak outflow discharge in the case of a rectangular initial breach is higher than the V-notch shape by 5%.3.

The time of peak outflow discharge for a rectangular initial breach is shorter than the V-notch shape by 9%.4.

The minimum depth and maximum width for the initial breach achieve maximum erosion rates (increasing breach width, b0, or decreasing breach depth, h0, by 5% from the dam height leads to an increase in the maximum rate of erosion by 11% and 15%, respectively), so the dam failure is rapid.5.

The center location of the initial breach leads to an accelerating dam failure compared with the edge location.6.

The initial breach location has a negligible effect on the peak outflow discharge value and its time.7.

Increasing the downstream slope angle by 4° leads to an increase in both peak outflow discharge and maximum rate of erosion by 2.0% and 6.0%, respectively.8.

The upstream slope has a negligible effect on the dam breaching process.

Multiscale Process Modeling of Residual Deformation and Defect Formation for Laser Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing

Qian Chen, PhD
University of Pittsburgh, 2021

레이저 분말 베드 퓨전(L-PBF) 적층 제조(AM)는 우수한 기계적 특성으로 그물 모양에 가까운 복잡한 부품을 생산할 수 있습니다. 그러나 빌드 실패 및 다공성과 같은 결함으로 이어지는 원치 않는 잔류 응력 및 왜곡이 L-PBF의 광범위한 적용을 방해하고 있습니다.

L-PBF의 잠재력을 최대한 실현하기 위해 잔류 변형, 용융 풀 및 다공성 형성을 예측하는 다중 규모 모델링 방법론이 개발되었습니다. L-PBF의 잔류 변형 및 응력을 부품 규모에서 예측하기 위해 고유 변형 ​​방법을 기반으로 하는 다중 규모 프로세스 모델링 프레임워크가 제안됩니다.

고유한 변형 벡터는 마이크로 스케일에서 충실도가 높은 상세한 다층 프로세스 시뮬레이션에서 추출됩니다. 균일하지만 이방성인 변형은 잔류 왜곡 및 응력을 예측하기 위해 준 정적 평형 유한 요소 분석(FEA)에서 레이어별로 L-PBF 부품에 적용됩니다.

부품 규모에서의 잔류 변형 및 응력 예측 외에도 분말 규모의 다중물리 모델링을 수행하여 공정 매개변수, 예열 온도 및 스패터링 입자에 의해 유도된 용융 풀 변동 및 결함 형성을 연구합니다. 이러한 요인과 관련된 용융 풀 역학 및 다공성 형성 메커니즘은 시뮬레이션 및 실험을 통해 밝혀졌습니다.

제안된 부품 규모 잔류 응력 및 왜곡 모델을 기반으로 경로 계획 방법은 큰 잔류 변형 및 건물 파손을 방지하기 위해 주어진 형상에 대한 레이저 스캐닝 경로를 조정하기 위해 개발되었습니다.

연속 및 아일랜드 스캐닝 전략을 위한 기울기 기반 경로 계획이 공식화되고 공식화된 컴플라이언스 및 스트레스 최소화 문제에 대한 전체 감도 분석이 수행됩니다. 이 제안된 경로 계획 방법의 타당성과 효율성은 AconityONE L-PBF 시스템을 사용하여 실험적으로 입증되었습니다.

또한 기계 학습을 활용한 데이터 기반 프레임워크를 개발하여 L-PBF에 대한 부품 규모의 열 이력을 예측합니다. 본 연구에서는 실시간 열 이력 예측을 위해 CNN(Convolutional Neural Network)과 RNN(Recurrent Neural Network)을 포함하는 순차적 기계 학습 모델을 제안합니다.

유한 요소 해석과 비교하여 100배의 예측 속도 향상이 달성되어 실제 제작 프로세스보다 빠른 예측이 가능하고 실시간 온도 프로파일을 사용할 수 있습니다.

Laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) additive manufacturing (AM) is capable of producing complex parts near net shape with good mechanical properties. However, undesired residual stress and distortion that lead to build failure and defects such as porosity are preventing broader applications of L-PBF. To realize the full potential of L-PBF, a multiscale modeling methodology is developed to predict residual deformation, melt pool, and porosity formation. To predict the residual deformation and stress in L-PBF at part-scale, a multiscale process modeling framework based on inherent strain method is proposed.

Inherent strain vectors are extracted from detailed multi-layer process simulation with high fidelity at micro-scale. Uniform but anisotropic strains are then applied to L-PBF part in a layer-by-layer fashion in a quasi-static equilibrium finite element analysis (FEA) to predict residual distortion and stress. Besides residual distortion and stress prediction at part scale, multiphysics modeling at powder scale is performed to study the melt pool variation and defect formation induced by process parameters, preheating temperature and spattering particles. Melt pool dynamics and porosity formation mechanisms associated with these factors are revealed through simulation and experiments.

Based on the proposed part-scale residual stress and distortion model, path planning method is developed to tailor the laser scanning path for a given geometry to prevent large residual deformation and building failures. Gradient based path planning for continuous and island scanning strategy is formulated and full sensitivity analysis for the formulated compliance- and stress-minimization problem is performed.

The feasibility and effectiveness of this proposed path planning method is demonstrated experimentally using the AconityONE L-PBF system. In addition, a data-driven framework utilizing machine learning is developed to predict the thermal history at part-scale for L-PBF.

In this work, a sequential machine learning model including convolutional neural network (CNN) and recurrent neural network (RNN), long shortterm memory unit, is proposed for real-time thermal history prediction. A 100x prediction speed improvement is achieved compared to the finite element analysis which makes the prediction faster than real fabrication process and real-time temperature profile available.

Abstract

많은 계단식 배수로 지오메트리 설계 지침이 평평한 단계를 위해 개발되었지만 통합 단계를 설계하는 것이 더 효율적으로 작동하는 배수로에 대한 적절한 대안이 될 수 있습니다.

이 논문은 POOL의 다른 높이에서 공기 연행과 보이드 비율의 시작점을 다루는 것을 목표로 합니다. 그 후, FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 POOL과 경사면의 높이를 다르게 하여 폭기된 지역과 폭기되지 않은 지역에서 압력 분포를 평가했습니다.

얻어진 수치 결과와 실험 결과의 비교는 본 연구에 사용된 모든 방류에 대해 잘 일치했습니다. POOL 높이는 시작 지점 위치에 미미한 영향을 미쳤습니다. 공극률의 값은 높은 방류에 비해 낮은 방전에서 더 많은 영향을 받았습니다.

여수로의 마루(통기되지 않은 지역)에서는 음압이 나타나지 않았으며 각 방류에서 마루를 따라 높이가 15cm인 수영장에서 최대 압력 값이 얻어졌습니다.

모든 사면에서 웅덩이 및 평평한 계단형 여수로의 계단층 부근에서는 음압이 형성되지 않았습니다. 그러나 평단식 여수로에 비해 평단식 여수로의 수직면 부근에서 음압이 더 많이 형성되어 평단식 슈트에서 캐비테이션 현상이 발생할 확률이 증가하였습니다.

Study of inception point, void fraction and pressure over pooled
stWhile many stepped spillways geometry design guidelines were developed for flat steps, designing pooled steps might be an appropriate alternative to spillways working more efficiency. This paper aims to deal with the inception point of air-entrainment and void fraction in the different height of the pools. Following that, pressure distribution was evaluated in aerated and non-aerated regions under the effect of different heights of the pools and slopes through the use of the FLOW-3D software. Comparison of obtained numerical results with experimental ones was in good agreement for all discharges used in this study. Pools height had the insignificant effect on the inception point location. The value of void fraction was more affected in lower discharges in comparison with higher ones. Negative pressure was not seen over the crest of spillway (non-aerated region), and the maximum pressure values were obtained for pools with 15 cm height along the crest in each discharge. In all slopes, negative pressure was not formed near the step bed in the pooled and flat stepped spillways. However, negative pressure was formed in more area near the vertical face in the flat stepped spillway compared with the pooled stepped spillway which increases the probability of cavitation phenomenon in the flat stepped chute.

Design/methodology/approach

압력, 공극률 및 시작점을 평가하기 위해 POOL된 계단식 여수로가 사용되었습니다. 또한 POOL의 다른 높이가 사용되었습니다. 이 연구의 수치 시뮬레이션은 Flow-3D 소프트웨어를 통해 수행되었습니다. 얻어진 결과는 풀이 압력, 공극률 및 시작점을 포함한 2상 유동 특성에 영향을 미칠 수 있음을 나타냅니다.

Findings

마루 위에는 음압이 보이지 않았습니다. 압력 값은 사용된 모든 높이와 15cm 높이에서 얻은 최대 값에 대해 다릅니다. 또한, 풀링 스텝은 플랫 케이스에 비해 음압점 감소에 더 효과적인 역할을 하였습니다. 시작 지점 위치는 특히 9 및 15cm 높이에 대해 스키밍 흐름 영역과 비교하여 낮잠 및 전환 흐름 영역에서 더 많은 영향을 받았습니다.

Conclusion

본 연구에서는 자유표면을 모사하기 위해 VOF 방법과 k -ε (RNG) 난류 모델을 활용하여 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용하였고, 계단식 배수로의 유동을 모사하기 위한 목적으로 난류 특성을 모사하였다. 얻은 결과는 수치 모델이 시작점 위치, 보이드 비율 및 압력을 적절하게 시뮬레이션했음을 나타냅니다. 풀의 높이는 공기 유입 위치에 미미한 영향을 미치므로 얻은 결과는 이 문서에서 제시된 상관 관계와 잘 일치했습니다. 즉, 사용 가능한 상관 관계를 서로 다른 풀 높이에 사용할 수 있습니다. 공극률의 결과는 스텝 풀 근처의 나프 유동 영역에서 공극율 값이 다른 배출보다 더 큰 것으로 나타났다. 더욱이 고방출량 .0 113m3/s에서 수영장 높이를 변경해도 수영장 표면 근처의 공극률 값에는 영향을 미치지 않았습니다.

낮잠 및 전환 체제의 압력 분포에 대한 0 및 3cm 높이의 수영장 효과는 많은 지점에서 대부분 유사했습니다. 더욱이 조사된 모든 높이에서 여수로의 마루를 따라 부압이 없었습니다. 여수로 끝단의 바닥 부근의 압력 결과는 평평하고 고인 경우 부압이 발생하지 않았음을 나타냅니다. 수직면 부근의 음압은 웅덩이에 비해 평평한 계단형 여수로의 깊이(w=0 cm)의 대부분에서 발생하였다. 또한 더 큰 사면에 대한 풀링 케이스에서 음압이 제거되었습니다. 평단식 여수로에서는 계단의 수직면에 인접한 더 넓은 지역에서 음압이 발생하였기 때문에 이 여수로에서는 고형단식여수로보다 캐비테이션 현상이 발생할 가능성이 더 큽니다.

In this study, the FLOW-3D software was used through utilizing the VOF method and k −ε (RNG) turbulence model in order to simulate free surface, and turbulence characteristics for the purpose of simulating flow over pooled stepped spillway. The results obtained indicated that the numerical model properly simulated the inception point location, void fraction, and pressure. The height of the pools has the insignificant effect on the location of air entrainment, so that obtained results were in good agreement with the correlations presented in this paper. In other words, available correlations can be used for different pool heights. The results of void fraction showed that the void fraction values in nappe flow regime near the step pool were more than the other discharges. Furthermore in high discharge, 0.113m3/s, altering pool height had no effect on the value of void fraction near the pool surface.

The effect of the pools with 0 and 3 cm heights over the pressure distribution in nappe and transition regimes was mostly similar in many points. Furthermore, in all examined heights there was no negative pressure along the crest of the spillway. The pressure results near the bed of the step at the end of the spillway indicated that negative pressure did not occur in the flat and pooled cases. Negative pressure near the vertical face occurred in the most part of the depth in the flat stepped spillway (w=0 cm) in comparison with the pooled case. Also, the negative pressure was eliminated in the pooled case for the larger slopes. Since negative pressure occurred in a larger area adjacent the vertical face of the steps in the flat stepped spillways, it is more likely that cavitation phenomenon occurs in this spillway rather than the pooled stepped spillways.

Abstract

Vegetation along the river increases the roughness and reduces the average flow velocity, reduces flow energy, and changes the flow velocity profile in the cross section of the river. Many canals and rivers in nature are covered with vegetation during the floods. Canal’s roughness is strongly affected by plants and therefore it has a great effect on flow resistance during flood. Roughness resistance against the flow due to the plants depends on the flow conditions and plant, so the model should simulate the current velocity by considering the effects of velocity, depth of flow, and type of vegetation along the canal. Total of 48 models have been simulated to investigate the effect of roughness in the canal. The results indicated that, by enhancing the velocity, the effect of vegetation in decreasing the bed velocity is negligible, while when the current has lower speed, the effect of vegetation on decreasing the bed velocity is obviously considerable.


강의 식생은 거칠기를 증가시키고 평균 유속을 감소시키며, 유속 에너지를 감소시키고 강의 단면에서 유속 프로파일을 변경합니다. 자연의 많은 운하와 강은 홍수 동안 초목으로 덮여 있습니다. 운하의 조도는 식물의 영향을 많이 받으므로 홍수시 유동저항에 큰 영향을 미칩니다. 식물로 인한 흐름에 대한 거칠기 저항은 흐름 조건 및 식물에 따라 다르므로 모델은 유속, 흐름 깊이 및 운하를 따라 식생 유형의 영향을 고려하여 현재 속도를 시뮬레이션해야 합니다. 근관의 거칠기의 영향을 조사하기 위해 총 48개의 모델이 시뮬레이션되었습니다. 결과는 유속을 높임으로써 유속을 감소시키는 식생의 영향은 무시할 수 있는 반면, 해류가 더 낮은 유속일 때 유속을 감소시키는 식생의 영향은 분명히 상당함을 나타냈다.

1. Introduction

Considering the impact of each variable is a very popular field within the analytical and statistical methods and intelligent systems [114]. This can help research for better modeling considering the relation of variables or interaction of them toward reaching a better condition for the objective function in control and engineering [1527]. Consequently, it is necessary to study the effects of the passive factors on the active domain [2836]. Because of the effect of vegetation on reducing the discharge capacity of rivers [37], pruning plants was necessary to improve the condition of rivers. One of the important effects of vegetation in river protection is the action of roots, which cause soil consolidation and soil structure improvement and, by enhancing the shear strength of soil, increase the resistance of canal walls against the erosive force of water. The outer limbs of the plant increase the roughness of the canal walls and reduce the flow velocity and deplete the flow energy in vicinity of the walls. Vegetation by reducing the shear stress of the canal bed reduces flood discharge and sedimentation in the intervals between vegetation and increases the stability of the walls [3841].

One of the main factors influencing the speed, depth, and extent of flood in this method is Manning’s roughness coefficient. On the other hand, soil cover [42], especially vegetation, is one of the most determining factors in Manning’s roughness coefficient. Therefore, it is expected that those seasonal changes in the vegetation of the region will play an important role in the calculated value of Manning’s roughness coefficient and ultimately in predicting the flood wave behavior [4345]. The roughness caused by plants’ resistance to flood current depends on the flow and plant conditions. Flow conditions include depth and velocity of the plant, and plant conditions include plant type, hardness or flexibility, dimensions, density, and shape of the plant [46]. In general, the issue discussed in this research is the optimization of flood-induced flow in canals by considering the effect of vegetation-induced roughness. Therefore, the effect of plants on the roughness coefficient and canal transmission coefficient and in consequence the flow depth should be evaluated [4748].

Current resistance is generally known by its roughness coefficient. The equation that is mainly used in this field is Manning equation. The ratio of shear velocity to average current velocity  is another form of current resistance. The reason for using the  ratio is that it is dimensionless and has a strong theoretical basis. The reason for using Manning roughness coefficient is its pervasiveness. According to Freeman et al. [49], the Manning roughness coefficient for plants was calculated according to the Kouwen and Unny [50] method for incremental resistance. This method involves increasing the roughness for various surface and plant irregularities. Manning’s roughness coefficient has all the factors affecting the resistance of the canal. Therefore, the appropriate way to more accurately estimate this coefficient is to know the factors affecting this coefficient [51].

To calculate the flow rate, velocity, and depth of flow in canals as well as flood and sediment estimation, it is important to evaluate the flow resistance. To determine the flow resistance in open ducts, Manning, Chézy, and Darcy–Weisbach relations are used [52]. In these relations, there are parameters such as Manning’s roughness coefficient (n), Chézy roughness coefficient (C), and Darcy–Weisbach coefficient (f). All three of these coefficients are a kind of flow resistance coefficient that is widely used in the equations governing flow in rivers [53].

The three relations that express the relationship between the average flow velocity (V) and the resistance and geometric and hydraulic coefficients of the canal are as follows:where nf, and c are Manning, Darcy–Weisbach, and Chézy coefficients, respectively. V = average flow velocity, R = hydraulic radius, Sf = slope of energy line, which in uniform flow is equal to the slope of the canal bed,  = gravitational acceleration, and Kn is a coefficient whose value is equal to 1 in the SI system and 1.486 in the English system. The coefficients of resistance in equations (1) to (3) are related as follows:

Based on the boundary layer theory, the flow resistance for rough substrates is determined from the following general relation:where f = Darcy–Weisbach coefficient of friction, y = flow depth, Ks = bed roughness size, and A = constant coefficient.

On the other hand, the relationship between the Darcy–Weisbach coefficient of friction and the shear velocity of the flow is as follows:

By using equation (6), equation (5) is converted as follows:

Investigation on the effect of vegetation arrangement on shear velocity of flow in laboratory conditions showed that, with increasing the shear Reynolds number (), the numerical value of the  ratio also increases; in other words the amount of roughness coefficient increases with a slight difference in the cases without vegetation, checkered arrangement, and cross arrangement, respectively [54].

Roughness in river vegetation is simulated in mathematical models with a variable floor slope flume by different densities and discharges. The vegetation considered submerged in the bed of the flume. Results showed that, with increasing vegetation density, canal roughness and flow shear speed increase and with increasing flow rate and depth, Manning’s roughness coefficient decreases. Factors affecting the roughness caused by vegetation include the effect of plant density and arrangement on flow resistance, the effect of flow velocity on flow resistance, and the effect of depth [4555].

One of the works that has been done on the effect of vegetation on the roughness coefficient is Darby [56] study, which investigates a flood wave model that considers all the effects of vegetation on the roughness coefficient. There are currently two methods for estimating vegetation roughness. One method is to add the thrust force effect to Manning’s equation [475758] and the other method is to increase the canal bed roughness (Manning-Strickler coefficient) [455961]. These two methods provide acceptable results in models designed to simulate floodplain flow. Wang et al. [62] simulate the floodplain with submerged vegetation using these two methods and to increase the accuracy of the results, they suggested using the effective height of the plant under running water instead of using the actual height of the plant. Freeman et al. [49] provided equations for determining the coefficient of vegetation roughness under different conditions. Lee et al. [63] proposed a method for calculating the Manning coefficient using the flow velocity ratio at different depths. Much research has been done on the Manning roughness coefficient in rivers, and researchers [496366] sought to obtain a specific number for n to use in river engineering. However, since the depth and geometric conditions of rivers are completely variable in different places, the values of Manning roughness coefficient have changed subsequently, and it has not been possible to choose a fixed number. In river engineering software, the Manning roughness coefficient is determined only for specific and constant conditions or normal flow. Lee et al. [63] stated that seasonal conditions, density, and type of vegetation should also be considered. Hydraulic roughness and Manning roughness coefficient n of the plant were obtained by estimating the total Manning roughness coefficient from the matching of the measured water surface curve and water surface height. The following equation is used for the flow surface curve:where  is the depth of water change, S0 is the slope of the canal floor, Sf is the slope of the energy line, and Fr is the Froude number which is obtained from the following equation:where D is the characteristic length of the canal. Flood flow velocity is one of the important parameters of flood waves, which is very important in calculating the water level profile and energy consumption. In the cases where there are many limitations for researchers due to the wide range of experimental dimensions and the variety of design parameters, the use of numerical methods that are able to estimate the rest of the unknown results with acceptable accuracy is economically justified.

FLOW-3D software uses Finite Difference Method (FDM) for numerical solution of two-dimensional and three-dimensional flow. This software is dedicated to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and is provided by Flow Science [67]. The flow is divided into networks with tubular cells. For each cell there are values of dependent variables and all variables are calculated in the center of the cell, except for the velocity, which is calculated at the center of the cell. In this software, two numerical techniques have been used for geometric simulation, FAVOR™ (Fractional-Area-Volume-Obstacle-Representation) and the VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) method. The equations used at this model for this research include the principle of mass survival and the magnitude of motion as follows. The fluid motion equations in three dimensions, including the Navier–Stokes equations with some additional terms, are as follows:where  are mass accelerations in the directions xyz and  are viscosity accelerations in the directions xyz and are obtained from the following equations:

Shear stresses  in equation (11) are obtained from the following equations:

The standard model is used for high Reynolds currents, but in this model, RNG theory allows the analytical differential formula to be used for the effective viscosity that occurs at low Reynolds numbers. Therefore, the RNG model can be used for low and high Reynolds currents.

Weather changes are high and this affects many factors continuously. The presence of vegetation in any area reduces the velocity of surface flows and prevents soil erosion, so vegetation will have a significant impact on reducing destructive floods. One of the methods of erosion protection in floodplain watersheds is the use of biological methods. The presence of vegetation in watersheds reduces the flow rate during floods and prevents soil erosion. The external organs of plants increase the roughness and decrease the velocity of water flow and thus reduce its shear stress energy. One of the important factors with which the hydraulic resistance of plants is expressed is the roughness coefficient. Measuring the roughness coefficient of plants and investigating their effect on reducing velocity and shear stress of flow is of special importance.

Roughness coefficients in canals are affected by two main factors, namely, flow conditions and vegetation characteristics [68]. So far, much research has been done on the effect of the roughness factor created by vegetation, but the issue of plant density has received less attention. For this purpose, this study was conducted to investigate the effect of vegetation density on flow velocity changes.

In a study conducted using a software model on three density modes in the submerged state effect on flow velocity changes in 48 different modes was investigated (Table 1).Table 1 The studied models.

The number of cells used in this simulation is equal to 1955888 cells. The boundary conditions were introduced to the model as a constant speed and depth (Figure 1). At the output boundary, due to the presence of supercritical current, no parameter for the current is considered. Absolute roughness for floors and walls was introduced to the model (Figure 1). In this case, the flow was assumed to be nonviscous and air entry into the flow was not considered. After  seconds, this model reached a convergence accuracy of .

Figure 1 The simulated model and its boundary conditions.

Due to the fact that it is not possible to model the vegetation in FLOW-3D software, in this research, the vegetation of small soft plants was studied so that Manning’s coefficients can be entered into the canal bed in the form of roughness coefficients obtained from the studies of Chow [69] in similar conditions. In practice, in such modeling, the effect of plant height is eliminated due to the small height of herbaceous plants, and modeling can provide relatively acceptable results in these conditions.

48 models with input velocities proportional to the height of the regular semihexagonal canal were considered to create supercritical conditions. Manning coefficients were applied based on Chow [69] studies in order to control the canal bed. Speed profiles were drawn and discussed.

Any control and simulation system has some inputs that we should determine to test any technology [7077]. Determination and true implementation of such parameters is one of the key steps of any simulation [237881] and computing procedure [8286]. The input current is created by applying the flow rate through the VFR (Volume Flow Rate) option and the output flow is considered Output and for other borders the Symmetry option is considered.

Simulation of the models and checking their action and responses and observing how a process behaves is one of the accepted methods in engineering and science [8788]. For verification of FLOW-3D software, the results of computer simulations are compared with laboratory measurements and according to the values of computational error, convergence error, and the time required for convergence, the most appropriate option for real-time simulation is selected (Figures 2 and 3 ).

Figure 2 Modeling the plant with cylindrical tubes at the bottom of the canal.

Figure 3 Velocity profiles in positions 2 and 5.

The canal is 7 meters long, 0.5 meters wide, and 0.8 meters deep. This test was used to validate the application of the software to predict the flow rate parameters. In this experiment, instead of using the plant, cylindrical pipes were used in the bottom of the canal.

The conditions of this modeling are similar to the laboratory conditions and the boundary conditions used in the laboratory were used for numerical modeling. The critical flow enters the simulation model from the upstream boundary, so in the upstream boundary conditions, critical velocity and depth are considered. The flow at the downstream boundary is supercritical, so no parameters are applied to the downstream boundary.

The software well predicts the process of changing the speed profile in the open canal along with the considered obstacles. The error in the calculated speed values can be due to the complexity of the flow and the interaction of the turbulence caused by the roughness of the floor with the turbulence caused by the three-dimensional cycles in the hydraulic jump. As a result, the software is able to predict the speed distribution in open canals.

To investigate the effects of roughness with flow velocity, the trend of flow velocity changes at different depths and with supercritical flow to a Froude number proportional to the depth of the section has been obtained.

According to the velocity profiles of Figure 5, it can be seen that, with the increasing of Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases.

According to Figures 5 to 8, it can be found that, with increasing the Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases. But this deceleration is more noticeable than the deceleration of the models 1 to 12, which can be justified by increasing the speed and of course increasing the Froude number.

According to Figure 10, we see that, with increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases.

According to Figure 11, we see that, with increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases. But this deceleration is more noticeable than the deceleration of Figures 510, which can be justified by increasing the speed and, of course, increasing the Froude number.

With increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases (Figure 12). But this deceleration is more noticeable than the deceleration of the higher models (Figures 58 and 1011), which can be justified by increasing the speed and, of course, increasing the Froude number.

According to Figure 13, with increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases. But this deceleration is more noticeable than the deceleration of Figures 5 to 12, which can be justified by increasing the speed and, of course, increasing the Froude number.

According to Figure 15, with increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases.

According to Figure 16, with increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases. But this deceleration is more noticeable than the deceleration of the higher model, which can be justified by increasing the speed and, of course, increasing the Froude number.

According to Figure 17, it is clear that, with increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases. But this deceleration is more noticeable than the deceleration of the higher models, which can be justified by increasing the speed and, of course, increasing the Froude number.

Figure 17 Canal diagram with a depth of 3 meters and a flow rate of 5.2 meters per second.

According to Figure 18, with increasing Manning’s coefficient, the canal bed speed decreases. But this deceleration is more noticeable than the deceleration of the higher models, which can be justified by increasing the speed and, of course, increasing the Froude number.

According to Figure 19, it can be seen that the vegetation placed in front of the flow input velocity has negligible effect on the reduction of velocity, which of course can be justified due to the flexibility of the vegetation. The only unusual thing is the unexpected decrease in floor speed of 3 m/s compared to higher speeds.(a)

According to Figure 20, by increasing the speed of vegetation, the effect of vegetation on reducing the flow rate becomes more noticeable. And the role of input current does not have much effect in reducing speed.(a)

According to Figure 21, it can be seen that, with increasing speed, the effect of vegetation on reducing the bed flow rate becomes more noticeable and the role of the input current does not have much effect. In general, it can be seen that, by increasing the speed of the input current, the slope of the profiles increases from the bed to the water surface and due to the fact that, in software, the roughness coefficient applies to the channel floor only in the boundary conditions, this can be perfectly justified. Of course, it can be noted that, due to the flexible conditions of the vegetation of the bed, this modeling can show acceptable results for such grasses in the canal floor. In the next directions, we may try application of swarm-based optimization methods for modeling and finding the most effective factors in this research [27815188994]. In future, we can also apply the simulation logic and software of this research for other domains such as power engineering [9599].(a)

3. Conclusion

The effects of vegetation on the flood canal were investigated by numerical modeling with FLOW-3D software. After analyzing the results, the following conclusions were reached:(i)Increasing the density of vegetation reduces the velocity of the canal floor but has no effect on the velocity of the canal surface.(ii)Increasing the Froude number is directly related to increasing the speed of the canal floor.(iii)In the canal with a depth of one meter, a sudden increase in speed can be observed from the lowest speed and higher speed, which is justified by the sudden increase in Froude number.(iv)As the inlet flow rate increases, the slope of the profiles from the bed to the water surface increases.(v)By reducing the Froude number, the effect of vegetation on reducing the flow bed rate becomes more noticeable. And the input velocity in reducing the velocity of the canal floor does not have much effect.(vi)At a flow rate between 3 and 3.3 meters per second due to the shallow depth of the canal and the higher landing number a more critical area is observed in which the flow bed velocity in this area is between 2.86 and 3.1 m/s.(vii)Due to the critical flow velocity and the slight effect of the roughness of the horseshoe vortex floor, it is not visible and is only partially observed in models 1-2-3 and 21.(viii)As the flow rate increases, the effect of vegetation on the rate of bed reduction decreases.(ix)In conditions where less current intensity is passing, vegetation has a greater effect on reducing current intensity and energy consumption increases.(x)In the case of using the flow rate of 0.8 cubic meters per second, the velocity distribution and flow regime show about 20% more energy consumption than in the case of using the flow rate of 1.3 cubic meters per second.

Abstract

적층 제조(AM) 기술은 복잡한 형상의 3D 부품을 쉽게 만들고 미세 구조 제어를 통해 재료 특성을 크게 제어할 수 있기 때문에 많은 관심을 받았습니다. PBF(Powderbed fusion) 방식의 AM 공정에서는 금속 분말을 레이저나 전자빔으로 녹이고 응고시키는 과정을 반복하여 3D 부품을 제작합니다.

일반적으로 응고 미세구조는 Hunt[Mater. 과학. 영어 65, 75(1984)]. 그러나 CET 이론이 일반 316L 스테인리스강에서도 높은 G와 R로 인해 PBF형 AM 공정에 적용될 수 있을지는 불확실하다.

본 연구에서는 미세구조와 응고 조건 간의 관계를 밝히기 위해 전자빔 조사에 의해 유도된 316L 강의 응고 미세구조를 분석하고 CtFD(Computational Thermal-Fluid Dynamics) 방법을 사용하여 고체/액체 계면에서의 응고 조건을 평가했습니다.

CET 이론과 반대로 높은 G 조건에서 등축 결정립이 종종 형성되는 것으로 밝혀졌다. CtFD 시뮬레이션은 약 400 mm s-1의 속도까지 유체 흐름이 있음을 보여 주며 수상 돌기의 파편 및 이동의 영향으로 등축 결정립이 형성됨을 시사했습니다.

Additive manufacturing(AM)technologies have attracted much attention because it enables us to build 3D parts with complicated geometry easily and control material properties significantly via the control of microstructures. In the powderbed fusion(PBF)type AM process, 3D parts are fabricated by repeating a process of melting and solidifying metal powders by laser or electron beams. In general, the solidification microstructures can be predicted from solidification conditions defined by the combination of temperature gradient G and solidification rate R on the basis of columnar-equiaxed transition(CET)theory proposed by Hunt [Mater. Sci. Eng. 65, 75(1984)]. However, it is unclear whether the CET theory can be applied to the PBF type AM process because of the high G and R, even for general 316L stainless steel. In this study, to reveal relationships between microstructures and solidification conditions, we have analyzed solidification microstructures of 316L steel induced by electronbeam irradiation and evaluated solidification conditions at the solid/liquid interface using a computational thermal-fluid dynamics (CtFD)method. It was found that equiaxed grains were often formed under high G conditions contrary to the CET theory. CtFD simulation revealed that there is a fluid flow up to a velocity of about 400 mm s-1, and suggested that equiaxed grains are formed owing to the effect of fragmentations and migrations of dendrites.

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

방파제의 주요 목적은 항만 내부의 안정을 유지하여 선박의 안전과 운영의 용이성을 달성하는데 도움이 되기 때문에 강한 파도와 폭풍으로부터 항만, 해변 또는 해변 시설을 보호하는 것입니다.

이 연구는 수직 방파제에 대한 비전통적인 대안을 연구하는 것을 목표로 합니다. 이 연구에서는 유체역학적 성능의 연구 및 평가를 위해 구현된 수직파 장벽의 두 가지 다른 모델을 선택했습니다.

첫 번째 모델은 원형 슬롯이 있는 수직 벽이고 두 번째 모델은 사각형 슬롯이 있는 수직 벽입니다. 두 모델을 비교한 결과 정사각형 슬롯은 원형 슬롯보다 파동의 전송을 5~20% 감소시키는 것으로 나타났습니다.

두 개의 원형 홈이 있는 벽을 사용하면 단일 벽에 비해 파동 전송이 최대 30% 감소하고 파동 에너지 분산이 최대 40% 증가합니다. 상대 길이(h/L)가 증가함에 따라 수평파력이 증가합니다.

다공성 = 0.25에서 상대파력(F/Fo)은 다공성 = 0.50에서보다 10~30% 더 컸습니다. 개구부에서 파동 속도가 높고 파동 에너지 소산 계수도 높습니다. 파동 진폭이 클수록 파동 에너지 소산 계수가 커집니다.

Introduction

모든 국가에서 해안 지역은 가장 중요하고 중요한 지역 중 하나입니다. 연안지역과 항만은 대외무역 촉진, 연안관광 개발 및 활성화 등 다양한 분야에 기여하고 있어 경제적 파급효과가 매우 크며, 일자리 창출은 물론 도시근린 정착 및 안정에도 기여한다. 젊은이들에게 강력한 수익을 제공하는 가능성과 어항을 건설하여 어획량을 늘리는 것입니다. [1].

그러나 해안선 부근의 파도, 바람, 조수, 조류 등의 자연 현상은 해변과 해안 지역의 안정성에 영향을 미칩니다. 따라서 연안 보전 서비스는 연안 환경의 균형을 유지하고 보존하는 데 중요한 역할을 합니다. 거센 파도로부터 항구와 해변 시설을 보호하는 방파제 방파제. 방파제는 선박이 안전하게 정박할 수 있는 조용한 지역을 제공하고 건설 및 석유 및 광물 발견 동안 임시 보호를 제공합니다.

파도는 방파제에 부딪힐 때 많은 에너지를 잃습니다. 방파제는 눈에 보이거나 떠 있거나 수중일 수 있으며 다양한 크기, 재료 및 출력 표준이 있습니다[11]. 전통적인 장벽 또는 눈에 보이는 격벽은 매우 효율적이지만 해변의 미적 비전을 가립니다. 많은 건축 자재가 필요하고 건설 비용이 증가합니다[9].

이에 반해 부유방벽은 자재가 필요없고 공사비가 저렴하지만 그 효과는 제한적입니다. 결과적으로 수중 파티션은 이러한 종류의 단점을 방지하기 때문에 더 나은 옵션 중 하나로 간주됩니다.

수중 방벽은 가장 중요한 해변 방어 시설 중 하나이며, 수중 방벽의 장점 중 하나는 투명 방벽에 비해 건설 비용이 비교적 저렴하고 물이 앞에서 뒤로 흐를 수 있다는 것입니다[3].

멤브레인 아래에서 물이 재생됩니다. 또한 바다의 미적 이미지를 왜곡하지 않고 조망을 방해하지 않아 인근 해변에 미치는 영향도 미미하다[18]. 반면에 잠긴 방파제는 건설 후 가라앉으면서 파도 에너지를 분산시키고 해안선을 방어하는 효과를 잃습니다. 장벽의 품질은 높은 수위의 영향도 받습니다.

결과적으로 해안 보호의 가장 중요한 측면 중 하나는 수중 방파제의 효율성을 향상시키는 것입니다. 수직 방파제 이러한 유형의 방파제는 바다를 향한 수직면이 있는 설비입니다[10]. 이러한 장벽은 파도 에너지의 일부가 해안이나 보호할 수역에 도달하는 것을 방지하여 파도를 진정시키는 역할을 합니다[16].

수직 방파제는 블록, 케이슨, 시트 파일 또는 셀룰러로 구성될 수 있습니다. 이 연구는 정사각형 및 원형 구멍이 있는 천공된 수직 방파제의 유체역학적 성능에 대한 연구를 제시하는 것을 목적으로 합니다.

이 논문은 또한 제안된 모델의 유체역학적 효율뿐만 아니라 이 분야의 유사한 연구와 비교되었습니다. 이것은 다음 헤드라인으로 이 백서에 나와 있습니다.

Conclusion & Recommendations

얻어진 결과에 대한 이전 분석을 바탕으로 도달한 결론은 다음과 같습니다.
 결과와 연구에 따르면 FLOW-3D는 수직으로 구멍이 뚫린 벽이 있는 선형 파동과 파동의 관계를 설명하는 강력한 능력을 가지고 있습니다. 또한 실험실 데이터 및 반분석 결과의 가장 중요한 측면을 복제할 수 있습니다. FLOW-3D에 의해 생성된 수치적 결과는 훌륭합니다.
 사각슬롯은 원형슬롯에 비해 파동의 투과율이 5:20% 감소합니다.
 한 쌍의 원형 슬롯 벽을 사용하면 단일 벽에 비해 파동 투과율이 최대 30% 감소하고 파동 에너지 분산이 최대 40% 증가합니다.
 수평파력은 상대길이(h/L)가 증가할수록 증가한다. 다공성 = 0.25에서 상대파력(F/Fo)은 다공성 = 0.50에서보다 10~30% 더 높았다.
 파도가 원 모양으로 움직이고 큰 원이 위쪽에 있었다가 점차 아래쪽으로 내려갑니다.  개구부에서 파동 속도가 높았고 파동 에너지 소산 계수도 높았습니다. 파동 진폭이 높을수록 파동 에너지 소산 계수가 높아집니다.

Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to provide a method to increase energy dissipation on an inclined drop. Therefore, three types of rough elements with cylindrical, triangular and batshaped geometries are used on the inclined slope in the relative critical depth range of 0.128 to 0.36 and the effect of the geometry of these elements is examined using Flow 3D software. The results showed demonstrate that the downstream relative depth obtained from the numerical analysis is in good agreement with the laboratory results. The application of rough elements on the inclined drop increased the downstream relative depth and also the relative energy dissipation. The application of rough elements on the sloping surface of the drop significantly reduced the downstream Froude number, so that the Froude number in all models ranging from 4.7~7.5 to 1.45~3.36 also decreased compared to the plain drop. Bat-shaped elements are structurally smaller in size, so the use of these elements, in addition to dissipating more energy, is also economically viable.

Introduction

급수 네트워크 시스템, 침식 수로, 수처리 시스템 및 경사가 큰 경우 흐름 에너지를 더 잘 제어하기 위해 경사 방울을 사용할 수 있습니다. 낙하 구조는 지반의 자연 경사를 설계 경사로 변환하여 에너지 소산, 유속 감소 및 수심 증가를 유발합니다. 따라서 흐름의 하류 에너지를 분산 시키기 위해 에너지 분산 구조를 사용할 수 있습니다. 난기류와 혼합된 물과 공기의 형성은 에너지 소비를 증가 시키는 효과적인 방법입니다. 흐름 경로에서 거칠기 요소를 사용하는 것은 에너지 소산을 위한 알려진 방법입니다. 이러한 요소는 흐름 경로에 배치됩니다. 그들은 종종 에너지 소산을 증가시키기 위해 다른 기하학적 구조와 배열을 가지고 있습니다. 이 연구의 목적은 직사각형 경사 방울에 대한 거칠기 요소의 영향을 조사하는 것입니다.

Conclusions

현재 연구에서 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 한 높이, 한 각도, 밀도 15% 및 지그재그 배열에서 삼각형, 원통형 및 박쥐 모양의 형상을 가진 세 가지 유형의 거칠기 요소를 사용하여 경사 낙하 수리학적 매개변수에 대한 거칠기 요소 형상의 영향 평가되었다. VOF 방법을 사용하여 자유 표면 흐름을 시뮬레이션하고 초기에 3개의 난류 모델 RNG, k-ɛ 및 kω를 검증에 사용하고 이를 검토한 후 RNG 방법을 사용하여 다른 모델을 시뮬레이션했습니다. 1- 수치 결과에서 얻은 부드러운 경사 방울의 하류 상대 깊이는 실험실 데이터와 매우 좋은 상관 관계가 있으며 원통형 요소가 장착 된 경사 방울의 상대 에지 깊이 값이 가장 높았습니다. 2- 하류 상대깊이는 임계상대깊이가 증가함에 따라 상승하는 경향을 나타내어 박쥐형 요소를 구비한 경사낙하와 완만한 경사낙하가 각각 하류상대깊이가 가장 높고 가장 낮았다. 3- 하류 깊이의 증가로 인해 상대적 임계 깊이가 증가함에 따라 상대적 에너지 소산이 감소합니다. 한편, 가장 높은 에너지 소산은 박쥐 모양의 요소가 장착된 경사 낙하와 관련이 있으며 가장 낮은 에너지 소산은 부드러운 낙하와 관련이 있습니다. 삼각형, 원통형 및 박쥐 모양의 거친 요소가 장착된 드롭은 부드러운 드롭보다 각각 65%, 76% 및 85% 더 많은 흐름 에너지를 소산합니다. 4- 낙차의 경사면에 거친 요소를 적용하여 다운 스트림 Froude 수를 크게 줄여 4.7 ~ 7.5에서 1.45 ~ 3.36까지의 모든 모델에서 Froude 수가 부드러운 낙하에 비해 감소했습니다. 또한, 다른 원소보다 부피가 작은 박쥐 모양의 거칠기의 부피로 인해 이러한 유형의 거칠기를 사용하는 것이 경제적입니다.

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.

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.

Abstract

This work presents two unsplit geometric VOF schemes that extend the two-dimensional cellwise conservative unsplit (CCU) scheme [Comminal et al., J. Comput. Phys. 283 (2015) 582–608] to three dimensions. The novelty of the 3D-CCU schemes lies in the representation of the streaksurfaces of donating regions by polyhedral surfaces whose vertices are calculated with the 4th order Runge-Kutta scheme. Moreover, the advected liquid volumes are computed using a truncation algorithm [López et al., J. Comput. Phys. 392 (2019) 666–693] suited for arbitrary non-convex and self-intersecting polyhedra, which removes the need for tetrahedral decomposition. The 3D-CCU advection schemes were coupled to three interface reconstruction methods (Youngs’ method, the Mixed Youngs-Centered scheme, and the Least-Square Fit algorithm). The resulting VOF methods were tested in classical benchmark advection tests, including translation, rigid-body rotation, shear and deformation flows. The proposed 3D-CCU schemes conserve the liquid volume and maintain the physical boundedness of liquid volume fractions to the machine precision. The 3D-CCU schemes perform favorably compared to other unsplit geometric VOF schemes when coupled to Youngs’ interface reconstruction method. Moreover, the 3D-CCU schemes coupled to the Least-Square Fit algorithm are more accurate than most other VOF schemes that use a second-order accurate interface reconstruction, except those where a 3D extension of the Mosso-Swartz interface reconstruction is employed. The comparison of the different VOF schemes highlights the importance of coupling accurate interface reconstruction methods with accurate unsplit advection schemes.

이 연구는 2 차원 CCU (Cellwise Conservative Unsplit) 방식을 확장하는 두 가지 분할되지 않은 기하학적 VOF 방식을 제시합니다 [Comminal et al., J. Comput. Phys. 283 (2015) 582–608]을 3 차원으로 변경했습니다. 3D-CCU 체계의 참신함은 4 차 Runge-Kutta 체계로 정점이 계산되는 다면체 표면으로 기부 지역의 줄무늬 표면을 표현하는 데 있습니다.

더욱, 가변 액체 부피는 절단 알고리즘을 사용하여 계산됩니다 [López et al., J. Comput. Phys. 392 (2019) 666–693]은 임의의 볼록하지 않고 자기 교차하는 다면체에 적합하며, 이는 사면체 분해의 필요성을 제거합니다. 3D-CCU 이류 계획은 세 가지 인터페이스 재구성 방법 (Youngs의 방법, Mixed Youngs-Centered 계획 및 Least-Square Fit 알고리즘)과 결합되었습니다. 결과 VOF 방법은 평행 이동, 강체 회전, 전단 및 변형 흐름을 포함한 고전적인 벤치 마크 이류 테스트에서 테스트되었습니다.

제안된 3D-CCU 방식은 액체 부피를 보존하고 기계 정밀도에 대한 액체 부피 분율의 물리적 경계를 유지합니다. 3D-CCU 방식은 Youngs의 인터페이스 재구성 방식과 결합 할 때 다른 분할되지 않은 기하학적 VOF 방식에 비해 우수한 성능을 발휘합니다.

또한 Least-Square Fit 알고리즘과 결합 된 3D-CCU 체계는 Mosso-Swartz 인터페이스 재구성의 3D 확장이 사용되는 경우를 제외하고 2 차 정확한 인터페이스 재구성을 사용하는 대부분의 다른 VOF 체계보다 더 정확합니다. 서로 다른 VOF 체계의 비교는 정확한 인터페이스 재구성 방법과 정확한 분할되지 않은 이류 체계를 결합하는 것의 중요성을 강조합니다.

This definition of the CFL number is different from the usual definition used in multi-dimensional algebraic advection schemes. However, the component-wise definition is more meaningful in the context of geometric VOF schemes, because it determines the number of layers of cells around the interfacial cells where the liquid volume fractions need to be updated.

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

본 논문의 목적은 일부 2D 및 3D 수치 모델이 침수 지역에 고립된 건물 또는 건물 배열이 있는 곳에서 홍수 파동을 시뮬레이션하는 능력을 조사하는 것이었습니다.

먼저, 제안된 2D 수치 모델은 구조화된 메시에서 2D 얕은 물 방정식(2D-SWEs)을 해결하기 위한 유한 볼륨 방법(FVM)을 기반으로 했습니다.

FDS (flux-difference splitting)은 정확한 질량 균형을 얻기 위해 사용되었고 Roe 체계는 Riemann 문제를 근사하기 위해 호출되었습니다.

둘째, 상업적으로 이용 가능한 3D CFD 소프트웨어 패키지가 선택되었으며, 여기에는 두 가지 난류 모델이 포함된 Flow 3D 모델이 포함되어 있습니다.

RNG(Renormalized Group) 및 LES(Large-eddy Simulation)를 사용하는 레이놀즈 평균 Navier-Stokes(RAN)입니다. 댐 붕괴 흐름으로 인한 장애물에 대한 충격력의 수치 결과는 3D 솔루션이 2D 솔루션보다 훨씬 낫다는 것을 보여주었습니다.

건물 배열에 작용하는 충격력의 3D 수치 힘 결과를 보유하고 있는 실험 데이터와 비교함으로써, 속도 유도력이 동적 힘에 미치는 영향은 Froude 숫자의 함수와 사고 파동의 수심 함수에 의해 정량화 되었습니다. 또한, 우리는 힘의 강도의 피크 값의 3D 계산 결과에 대한 초기 물 단계와 댐 붕괴 폭의 영향을 조사했습니다.

The aim of this paper was to investigate the ability of some 2D and 3D numerical models to simulate flood waves in the presence of an isolated building or building array in an inundated area. Firstly, the proposed 2D numerical model was based on the finite-volume method (FVM) to solve 2D shallow-water equations (2D-SWEs) on structured mesh. The flux-difference splitting method (FDS) was utilized to obtain an exact mass balance while the Roe scheme was invoked to approximate Riemann problems. Secondly, the 3D commercially available CFD software package was selected, which contained a Flow 3D model with two turbulent models: Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANs) with a renormalized group (RNG) and a large-eddy simulation (LES). The numerical results of an impact force on an obstruction due to a dam-break flow showed that a 3D solution was much better than a 2D one. By comparing the 3D numerical force results of an impact force acting on building arrays with the existence experimental data, the influence of velocity-induced force on a dynamic force was quantified by a function of the Froude number and the water depth of the incident wave. Furthermore, we investigated the effect of the initial water stage and dam-break width on the 3D-computed results of the peak value of force intensity.

Introduction

홍수 위험 분석에 따른 도시 계획은 최근에 큰 연구 과제였습니다.

건물 또는 건물 그룹에 대한 홍수 파동의 영향에 대한 연구는 하류 지역에 대한 조기 경고 또는 안전 의식 향상에 중요한 역할을 했습니다. 기본적으로 댐 파괴 흐름에 대한 연구는 실험 측정이나 수치 시뮬레이션을 통해 추정 할 수 있습니다 [1,2,3,4,5,6].

컴퓨터 처리 능력의 증가로 인해 불연속 흐름에 대한 수치 연구가 비용 효율적이되었습니다. 지난 10 년 동안 얕은 물 솔버는 정확성과 계산 능력면에서 크게 향상되었습니다. 침수 가능 지역의 수심 및 속도 프로파일과 같은 유체 역학적 매개 변수에 많은주의를 기울였습니다 [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8].

Migot et al. [9]는 도시 홍수의 실험적 모델링에 관한 많은 기사를 검토했습니다. 그 논문에 언급 된 45 개의 작품 중 단 4 개의 프로젝트 만이 장애물에 가해지는 일정한 또는 비정상적인 흐름의 힘 또는 압력을 측정했습니다.

또한 물리적 및 2D 수치 모델에서 건물 또는 건물 그룹에 돌발 홍수가 미치는 영향에 대한 연구는 거의 없었습니다. 얕은 물 모델은 [10,11]에서 고립된 장애물에 대한 충격의 힘을 예측하는데 사용되었습니다.

한편 Shige-eda [12]는 액체와 건물 배열 간의 상호 작용을 결정하기 위해 물리적 모델과 2D 수치 체계를 선택했습니다. Aureli와 Shige-eda는 수직 속도와 가속도를 무시하기 때문에 댐 파괴 흐름의 힘을 추정하기 위한 2D 얕은 물 방정식 (SWE)의 단점을 보여주었습니다 [10,12].

Migot [9]은 또한 장애물 주변의 시뮬레이션된 홍수 흐름에 대한 2D SWE에 대한 여러 출판물이 있었지만 이 주제에 대한 3D 수치 모델에 대한 연구는 거의 없다고 지적했습니다. 최근 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 3D 시뮬레이션은 유체 흐름과 관련된 문제를 해결하기위한 광범위한 도구가되었습니다.

댐 파괴 파의 특성은 [13,14,15,16]에 의해 주목되었고 Issakhov [17]는 다양한 종류의 장애물이 압력 분포에 미치는 영향을 조사하기 위해 CFD 방법을 사용했습니다. 그들은 분포가 댐 표면에서 3 배 더 낮다는 것을 밝혔다.

Aureli [10]는 댐 파괴 파가 구조물에 미치는 영향의 정적 힘을 평가하기 위해 실험 테스트와 2D 및 3D 수치 모델을 사용했습니다. Mokarani [18]는 댐 브레이크 흐름 영향의 VOF 시뮬레이션에서 피크 압력 안정성 조건을 연구했습니다.

앞서 언급한 작품에서 구조물이나 구조물 군에 작용하는 힘은 압력에 의한 정 수력 또는 정력이었다. 한편, 급류에서 속도로 인한 힘은 압력 력보다 크거나 같았습니다 [19]. Armanini [20]는 정상 흐름에 대해이 항을 추정하기 위한 분석적 표현 만을 제시했습니다. 우리가 아는 한, 건물 그룹에 작용하는 비정상 흐름의 동적 힘을 생성하기 위해 2D 및 3D 수학적 모델을 모두 사용하는 작업은 없습니다.

따라서 본 연구에서는 제안된 2D 수치 모델과 3D 수학적 모델 모두에 의해 고립 된 장애물 또는 장애물 그룹에 대한 급격한 비정상 흐름의 테스트 사례를 재현했습니다. 수심 및 유속 수문 그래프와 같은 몇 가지 수력 학적 특성이 추정되었으며 측정 된 데이터와 매우 잘 일치했습니다.

특히 댐 브레이크 흐름이 서로 다른 건물에 가하는 동적인 힘도 시뮬레이션했습니다. 속도 유도 힘이 동적 힘에 미치는 영향 수준을 나타내는 매개 변수는 Froude 수와 입사 파동의 수심의 함수인 것으로 밝혀졌습니다. 또한 붕괴된 댐 사이트 폭 (b)과 초기 수위 (h0)는 충격력의 최대 값에 영향을 미치는 변수로 고려되었습니다.

Conclusions

댐 붕괴 흐름으로 인한 홍수 파도는 높은 속도 또는 큰 깊이가 관련되었을 때 건물에 큰 영향을 미칩니다. 본 논문에서는 2D 및 3D 수치 모델의 건물 및 건물 그룹에 대한 빠른 흐름에 의해 발생하는 유압 특성과 충격 부하를 추정할 수 있는 능력을 조사했습니다. 얕은 물 방정식에 기초한 2D 수학 모델은 FDS 방법으로 해결되었으며, FDS 방법은 최신 버전의 Flow 3D 유체 역학 모델과 함께 사용되었습니다. 연구의 주요 발견은 다음과 같습니다.
(1) 수심 또는 속도 프로파일을 공식화하기 위해 2D 및 3D 수치 솔루션은 모두 매우 유사합니다. 제안된 2D 수치 모델은 정적 힘의 최대 값 뿐만 아니라 수심 및 속도 구성 요소를 포함하는 유압 특성을 예측하는 데 적합합니다. 그러나 LES 및 RAN 난류 모듈이 포함된 3D 유체역학 모델은 2D 얕은 흐름 모델이 1개만 제공하는 동안 두 개의 최고 충격 부하를 잘 포착할 수 있습니다. 일반적으로 3D 결과는 실험 결과와 더 가깝습니다.
(2) 여러 건물에 대한 정적 및 동적 힘은 모두 LES 모듈을 사용하여 Flow 3D에 의해 계산되었습니다. 건물에서 속도에 의한 힘과 압력의 역할은 위치에 따라 다릅니다. 댐 현장 근처에서, 속도 유도 힘은 댐 파괴 파동의 주 방향에서 멀리 떨어져 있거나 두 번째 배열에서 압력 힘이 더 중요합니다. 속도 유도 힘의 영향은 매개 변수 α에 의해 정량화되며, 이는 사고파의 Froude 숫자와 수심 함수로 수행됩니다. q2b/h0과 정적 힘과 동적 힘의 피크 강도 사이의 선형 회귀 관계는 합리적인 R-제곱 양으로 해결됩니다.

추가 연구에서, 제시된 2D 수치 모델의 견고성과 효과는 더 명확하게 드러날 것입니다. 대규모 도메인에 대한 홍수 흐름을 시뮬레이션하는 데 쉽게 적용할 수 있습니다. 또한, α 매개변수의 제안된 방정식(21)은 실제 사례 연구에서 다운스트림 영역의 건물에 대한 속도 유도 힘의 영향을 정확하게 평가하기 위한 매우 의미가 있습니다. 이 매개 변수의 정확도 수준을 높이려면 서로 다른 조건에서 장애물에 작용하는 여러 가지 힘 실험이 구현되어야 합니다.

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.

레이놀즈 수

본 자료는 국내 사용자들의 편의를 위해 원문 번역을 해서 제공하기 때문에 일부 오역이 있을 수 있어서 원문과 함께 수록합니다. 자료를 이용하실 때 참고하시기 바랍니다.

Reynolds Number

레이놀즈 수

주어진 수치 방법에 의해 정확하게 계산 될 수 있는 유동에 대해서 가장 높고, 가장 낮은 레이놀즈 수 무엇입니까? 이 질문은 다양한 답과 그리고 가장 기술적인 문제들로서 주어진 답을 포함하는 가정들로부터 다양한 답을 가지고 있습니다.

본 목적을 위해, 레이놀즈 수는 R = R LU / ν로 정의되며, 여기서 L과 U는 유동 특성 길이 및 스케일이고, ν는 유체의 동점도(kinematic viscosity )입니다. 즉 물체의 관성이 점성에 비해서 얼마나 큰가를 나타내는 척도로 이 레이놀즈 수가 작을수록 층류(유체의 유선이 유지되면서 흐르는 유동)가, 클수록 난류가 형성된다. 무 차원 레이놀즈 수가 점성의 관성 효과의 측정을 중요성을 상기시킵니다. 높은 레이놀즈 수에서의 흐름은 정성적으로 다른 행동을 나타내고, 난류 될 수 있습니다.

일반적으로 고려해야 할 가장 중요한 한계는 높은 레이놀즈 수입니다. 이것은 층류가 난류로의 분해 또는 경계층이 표면에서 분리되는 위치에 따라 달라지는 몸체의 양력 및 항력을 예측하는 데 계산이 사용될 수 있는 한계입니다. 유동에 대한 점성 응력의 상대적 효과를 정확하게 시뮬레이션 하는 것이 중요한 이러한 또는 다른 유형의 유동 프로세스에서는 계산에서 어떤 수준의 정확도를 기대할 수 있는지에 대한 아이디어를 갖는 것이 유용합니다.

일반적으로 고려해야 할 가장 중요한 한계는 높은 레이놀즈 수입니다. 이것은 층류에서 난류로 붕괴되는 것을 예측하곤 하는 계산의 한계치이며, 유동의 경계층이 그 표면에서부터 박리되는 곳에서의 물체의 양력과 항력을 예측하는 한계치이기도 합니다. 유동의 다양한 유형에서 유동의 점성 응력의 상대적 효과를 정확하게 시뮬레이션하는 것은 중요하며, 계산상 예측되는 정확도의 수준에 대한 어떤 아이디어를 확보하는 것 또한 매우 유용할 것입니다.

높은 레이놀즈 수 제한 – 물리적 인수

흐름을 정확하게 표현하는데 필요한 계산 요구 사항 (즉, 해상도)을 추정하기 위해 간단한 물리적 인수를 사용할 수 있습니다. 이 주장은 흐름 영역이 작은 요소로 세분화 될 때 요소 내의 모든 흐름량이 천천히 변한다는 가정을 기반으로 합니다. 이 가정은 각 요소의 평균 수량 값이 요소 내의 실제 값에 대한 좋은 근사치라는 의미를 전달합니다.

요소 내에서 느리게 변하는 속도를 가지려면 요소 크기의 척도에서 흐름의 레이놀즈 수가 작아야 합니다 (예 : 1 차 Rd = dx · du / ν ≤ 1.0). 이 표현에서 dx와 du는 요소의 길이와 속도 스케일입니다. 이 물리적 요구 사항, 요소의 흐름의 부드러움 (즉, 낮은 레이놀즈 수, 이 척도의 층류 흐름)은 정확한 수치 분해능에 필요한 요소의 크기를 정의하는데 사용될 수 있습니다.

위의 부등식은 L = Ndx 및 U = Ndu 관계에 의해 거시적 레이놀즈 수로 변환 될 수 있으며, 이는 R ≤ N 2로 이어집니다 . 즉, 개별 요소의 규모에 대한 부드러운 흐름의 물리적 정확도 요구 사항은 정확도로 계산할 수 있는 최대 레이놀즈 넘버원이 NN 2 정도라는 것을 의미합니다. 여기서 N은 특성을 해결하는 데 사용되는 요소의 수입니다. 길이 L.

대표적인 응용에서 N은 종종10 내지 20의 범위에 있는 수로서 매우 큰 수 아닙니다. 그리고 이는 단지 약400 의 정확한 계산을 위해 최대 레이놀즈 수로 변환합니다. 이 결과에 대해 해석을 달기 전에 정확한 레이놀즈 수 계산을 위한 추정을 위해서 다른 접근 방법을 시도하는 유익합니다.

High Reynolds Number Limit – A Numerical Argument

수치 근사에 의해서 계산 도입된 viscous-like smoothing의 양은 truncation error로부터 평가 될 수 있습니다. 알다시피 아이디어는 요소 크기 (그리고 적정한 시간 간격 크기) 멱함수을 미분 근사하는 테일러 급수 전개를 하는 것입니다. 물론, 일관성 있는 근사는 원래 근사환 된 편미분 방정식의 가장 낮은 차수를 이용하는 것입니다.

다음으로 높은 차수는 보통 확산 (즉, 2차 차수 공간 미분형태) 항입니다. 점성 계수와 더불어 이러한 항의 계수 비교는 점성 효과를 더 정확하게 계산 할 수 없을 때의 추정치를 제공합니다.

1차 수치 근사 (예를 들어 대류에 대한donor cell 또는upwind technique )에 대해서 정확도를 위해서 1보다 적어야만 하는 항들의 비는 다음의 판별식을 유도하게 됩니다( R ≤ 2N.) 그리고 2차 수치 근사의 결과, R ≤ N얻어지고 물리적인 인자(Physical Argument)로부터 같은 결과가 얻어 집니다.

이러한 관계의 우변을 곱하는 작은 숫자 요소가 사용되며, 이는 사용 된 특정 수치 근사에 따라 달라 지지만 N에 대한 기본 종속성은 변경되지 않습니다. 모든 2 차 방법이 1 차 방법보다 분명히 훨씬 낫지 만 결과는 고무적이지 않습니다. 정확하게 계산할 수 있는 최대 레이놀즈 수는 N을 늘리지 않는 한 매우 제한적인 것으로 보입니다. 이는 매우 큰 그리드를 처리한다는 의미입니다.

하이 레이놀즈 수에 대한 일반적인 의견

이러한 평가들은 첫 발생 시에는 실망스런 부분도 있으나 종종 완화되는 상황으로 전개됩니다. 무엇보다도 중용한 것은 대부분의 문제들은 점성 응력에 대한 정확한 처리를 요구하지 않습니다. 이러한 문제에 대해서 높은 레이놀즈 수의 상한은 점성 효과가 중요하지 않다는 것을 의도한 의미를 갖습니다.

어떤 유동이 난류에 의해 운동량 혼합이 이루워진 fully turbulent 되기 위해 충분히 높은 레이놀즈 수를 가질 때, 종종 잘 분류될 수 있는 scale을 가진 영역 내에서 100 미만의 유효한 레이놀즈 수의 평균 유동으로 진행되곤 합니다. 물론, 이것은 난류를 기술할 수 있는 적당한 난류 모델이 사용되고 있다는 것을 가정합니다.

마지막으로 점성 효과의 정확한 정보에 따라 일부 유동 특성을 가질 필요가 있을 때 인위적인 의미의 효과를 유도하는 것이 가능 할 수 있습니다. 예를 들어, 풍동 trip wire는 종종 레이놀즈 수 상사성( similarity )의 부족을 고려하여 trigger 유동의 박리에 사용되곤 합니다. 비슷한 처리가 풍동의 수치 시뮬레이션에 추가 될 수 있습니다.

결론은 CFD 방법을 사용하여 높은 레이놀즈 수 흐름을 계산하는 데 사용할 수 있지만 수치해석상의 전산 오차가 물리적인 효과를 압도 할 수 있는 상황에 대한 경고는 해당 난류 모델에 달려있다고 말할 수 있습니다.

낮은 레이놀즈 수 제한

낮은 레이놀즈 수에서 한계는 정밀도의 한계가 아니라 계산을 완료하는데 필요한 계산 시간을 기준으로 한계입니다.  점성 응력 항에 explicit 수치 근사를 사용하면 숫자의 안정성을 유지하기 위해 시간 단계의 크기에 한계가 있습니다.  이 한계는 본질적으로 점성으로 인한 운동량의 변화는 하나의 시간 단계에서 대략 1 개의 요소를 넘어 전파하는 것은 아니라는 것을 보여줍니다.  단순한 2 차원의 경우에는 이 한계는 νdt ≤ dx2/4입니다.

이것은 T = Mdt 및 TU = L이라는 대응을 작성하여 레이놀즈 수를 포함하는 식으로 변형 할 수 있습니다.  즉, 흐름의 특성 시간은 속도 U의 유체가 거리 L을 이동하는 시간이며, 시간 T를 분해 시간 단계의 수는 M입니다.  이러한 관계식에 의해 안정된 조건은 M = 4N2/R 입니다.

이 결과에서 중요한 것은 M이 R에 반비례하여 증가하는 것입니다.  레이놀즈 수가 매우 작은 흐름의 경우 explicit 수치 법에는 매우 많은 시간 단계가 필요할 수 있으며,이 숫자는 해상도의 상승에 따라 급속히 증가하고 있습니다.  낮은 레이놀즈 수의 한계를 가장 효과적으로 제거하는 방법은 implicit 수치 법을 사용하여 점성 응력을 평가하는 것입니다.


Reynolds Number

What are the highest and lowest Reynolds number flows that can be accurately computed by a given numerical method? This question has a variety of answers, and, as with most technical issues, the variety of answers arises from the assumptions involved in giving the answer.

For present purposes, the Reynolds number R is defined as R=LU/ν, where L and U are characteristic length and velocity scales for a flow, and ν is the kinematic viscosity of the fluid. It will be recalled that the non dimensional Reynolds number is a measure of the importance of inertia to viscosity effects. At high Reynolds numbers a flow may become turbulent, exhibiting qualitatively different behavior.

Generally, the most important limit to consider is that of high Reynolds numbers. This is the limit where computations might be used to predict the breakdown of a laminar flow into turbulence, or the lift and drag of a body that is dependent on where boundary layers separate from its surface. In these or other types of flow processes in which it is critical to correctly simulate the relative effect of viscous stresses on the flow, it is useful to have some idea of what level of accuracy can be expected in a computation.

The reason that a Reynolds number limitation exists in computational fluid dynamics CFD) is that the computational stability of most CFD methods relies on some type of numerical smoothing or homogenizing within the computational elements. Since viscosity is a physical mechanism for smoothing flow variations, there can be a problem differentiating between numerical and physical smoothing. This is especially important when critical Reynolds number situations are encountered, because they require an especially accurate estimate of viscous stresses.

High Reynolds Number Limit – A Physical Argument

A simple physical argument can be used to estimate the computational requirements (i.e., resolution) needed to achieve an accurate representation of a flow. The argument is based on the assumption that when a flow region is subdivided into small elements all flow quantities within an element are slowly varying. This assumption carries the implication that the average values of quantities in each element are good approximations for the actual values within the element.

To have a slowly varying velocity within an element, the Reynolds number of the flow on scales of the element size must be small, say of order one, Rd=dx·du/ν ≤ 1.0. In this expression dx and du are length and velocity scales characteristic of the element. This physical requirement, the smoothness of the flow in elements (i.e., a low Reynolds number, laminar flow on this scale), may be used to define the size of elements needed for an accurate numerical resolution.

The above inequality can be converted to a macroscopic Reynolds number by the relations, L=Ndx and U=Ndu, which leads to R ≤ N2. In other words, the physical accuracy requirement of a smooth flow on the scale of individual elements implies that the maximum Reynolds number one can expect to compute with accuracy is on the order of NN2 where N is the number of elements used to resolve a characteristic length L.

In typical applications, N is often in the range of 10 to 20, which translates to a maximum Reynolds number for accurate computations of only about 400, not a very large number! Before commenting on this result it is instructive to try a different approach for estimating the limit for accurate Reynolds number computations.

High Reynolds Number Limit – A Numerical Argument

The amount of viscous-like smoothing introduced into a computation by numerical approximations can be estimated from truncation errors. The idea is to do a Taylor Series expansion on the difference approximations in powers of the element size (and time-step size if that is appropriate). Of course, a consistent approximation should have as its lowest order terms the partial differential equation that was originally being approximated.

At the next higher order there are usually terms that have the character of a diffusion (i.e., second-order space derivatives). A comparison of the coefficients of these terms with the coefficient of viscosity gives an estimate of when viscous effects would no longer be computed accurately.

For a first-order numerical approximation (e.g., a donor cell or upwind technique for advection) the ratio of terms, which must be less than one for accuracy, leads to the criteria R ≤ 2N. With a second-order approximation the result is R ≤ N2, the same result obtained from the “Physical Argument.”

There are small numerical factors multiplying the right-hand sides of these relations, which depend on the specific numerical approximations used, but the basic dependencies on N remain unchanged. Any second-order method is clearly much better than a first-order method, but the results are not encouraging. The maximum Reynolds number that can be computed accurately appears to be quite limited, unless one is willing to increase N, which means dealing with extremely large grids.

General Comments on High Reynolds Numbers

These estimates are discouraging when first encountered, but there are frequently mitigating circumstances. Foremost is the realization that most problems do not require an accurate treatment of viscous stresses. For these problems the high Reynolds number limit has the intended meaning that viscous effects are not important.

When flows have a high enough Reynolds number to be fully turbulent the momentum mixing induced by the turbulence often leads to a mean flow with an effective Reynolds number that is less than 100, well within the range of resolvable scales. Of course, this assumes that a suitable turbulence model is available to describe the turbulence.

Finally, when it is necessary to have some flow property that depends on an accurate knowledge of viscous effects, it may be possible to induce that effect by artificial means. For example, in wind tunnels trip wires are sometimes used to trigger flow separations to account for a lack of Reynolds number similarity. A similar treatment can be added to a numerical simulation of a wind tunnel.

The bottom line is, CFD methods can be used to compute high Reynolds number flows, but it is up to the modeler to be alert for situations where numerical errors could overshadow physical effects.

Low Reynolds Number Limit

At low Reynolds numbers the limit is not one of accuracy but a limit based on the computational time necessary to complete a computation. When explicit numerical approximations are used for viscous stress terms there is a limit on the size of the time step to maintain numerical stability. That limit is essentially a statement that momentum changes caused by viscosity do not propagate more than about one element in one time step. In a simple two-dimensional case this limit is νdt ≤ dx2/4.

This can be transformed into an expression involving the Reynolds number by making the correspondences: T=Mdt and TU=L. That is, the characteristic time for a flow is the time for fluid at velocity U to move a distance L, and the number of time steps resolving time T is M. With these relations the stability condition is then, M = 4N2/R.

The importance of this result is that M increases inversely with R. For very low Reynolds number flows, explicit numerical methods may require a very large number of time steps, and this number increases rapidly with an increase in resolution. The low Reynolds number limit is best eliminated by employing an implicit numerical method for evaluating viscous stresses.

Modeling Techniques

CFD를 폭넓게 사용한 적이 있는 사람이라면 누구나 사용할 최적의 수치 기법이 뭔가에 관한 개인적인 취향이나 선입견을 가지고 있습니다.  이 절에서는 저자가 사용한 모델링 기법의 일부와 그들이 다른 기법보다 나은 선택이라고 생각하는 이유에 대해 설명합니다.

Anyone who has used CFD extensively will have his own preferences and prejudices for what are the best numerical methods to use.  The articles in this section explain some of the modeling techniques the author has used and why he believes they are good choices with respect to other methods.

Structured FAVOR™ grid in cylindrical coordinates
Structured FAVOR™ grid in cylindrical coordinates

이 절에서는 FAVOR (Fractional-Area-Volume-Obstacle-Representation ) 법과 VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) 법에 중점을두고 있습니다.  복잡한 장애물 주위의 유체 흐름을 모델링하는 경우 많은 숙련자는 장애물의 형상으로 변형된 계산 격자를 사용하는 것을 선호합니다.  이러한 계산 격자는 일반적으로 물체 적합 격자(body-fitted grids)라고합니다.  대조적으로, FAVOR 법은 요소에 면적 점유율 및 체적 점유율이 할당된 생성이 용이한 사각형 격자가 사용됩니다.  이러한 방식의 관련성에 대해서는 FAVOR와 물체 적합 좌표계 및 No Loss with FAVOR의 절에서 논의되고 있습니다.

These articles center on the FAVOR (Fractional-Area-Volume-Obstacle-Representation) method and the VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) method.  When modeling fluid flow around complex obstacles many practitioners prefer to use computational grids that are deformed to the shape of the obstacles, these are generally referred to as body-fitted grids.  The FAVOR method, in contrast, employees easy to generate rectangular grids whose elements are assigned fractional areas and volumes.  The connection between these approaches is discussed in the articles FAVOR vs. Body-Fitted Coordinates and No Loss with FAVOR.

Structured FAVOR™ Grids

VOF와 FAVOR ™은 모두 표면 기반의 계산 방법과 달리 볼륨 기반입니다. 경계 조건이 규정되는 유체 및 장애물 표면을 직접 설명하는 것이 논리적으로 보이지만 더 나은 방법은 유체 및 고체 영역의 볼륨을 사용하는 것입니다. 볼륨에는 많은 장점이 있습니다. 시간 종속적인 계산 시뮬레이션에서 움직이고 변화하는 유체 표면을 고려하십시오. 이를 자유 표면이라고하며 그 결정은 유체 역학 솔루션의 필수적인 부분이됩니다. 유체 표면은 시간이 지남에 따라 생성 및 파괴 될 수있을뿐만 아니라 유체 볼륨을 완전히 둘러 쌀 수도 있고 그렇지 않을 수도 있습니다.

Both VOF and FAVOR™ are volume-based, as opposed to surface based, computational methods. Even though it seems logical to directly describe fluid and obstacle surfaces on which boundary conditions are to be prescribed, a better method is to use the volumes of fluid and solid regions. Volumes have many advantages. Consider fluid surfaces that move and evolve in time-dependent computational simulations. These are referred to as free surfaces and their determination becomes an integral part of a fluid dynamic solution. Fluid surfaces can not only be created and destroyed over time, but may or may not completely enclose fluid masses.

간단한 예로는 호스를 빠져나가는 물이 있다고 가정하면 물의 표면적은 바깥쪽으로 흐르면서 커지고 있습니다. 만약 그것이 방울로 분해된다면, 서로 연결되지 않은 여러 표면이 있게 됩니다. 두 개 이상의 낙하물이 충돌하고 이들의 개별 표면이 더 이상 존재하지 않는 경우, 결합 낙하물을 둘러싼 단일 표면으로 대체됩니다. 또는 단순한 유체 강하가 임의로 변형되어 표면적이 변경될 수 있지만 유체가 압축할 수 없을 때는 부피에 변동이 없습니다. 이러한 종류의 행동은 개별 표면의 규격을 문제가 되게합니다.

A simple example is water exiting a hose. The surface area of the water is growing as it flows outward. If it breaks up into drops there are then multiple surfaces that are not connected to one another. Should two or more drops collide and coalesce their individual surfaces no longer exist being replaced by a single surface surrounding the combined drops. Or a simple fluid drop can arbitrarily deform resulting in a changing surface area, but its volume is unchanged when the fluid is incompressible. This sort of behavior makes the specification of individual surfaces problematic.

 한편, 유체나 고형물의 부피를 정의하는 것은 질량의 보존(그리고 불변의 부피 형태의 비압축성)이 유지하기가 더 쉽기 때문에 이치에 맞습니다. 유체 용적은 그들이 원하는 대로 결합하고 분리될 수 있으며, 결과 표면을 쉽게 평가할 수 있습니다. Volume methods에서 표면의 위치는 부피 영역이 끝나는 위치에 있습니다.

On the other hand, defining volumes of fluids or solids makes sense because conservation of mass (and incompressibility in the form of unchanging volumes) is easier to maintain. Fluid volumes may coalesce and breakup as they will, allowing easy evaluation of their resulting surfaces. In volume methods the location of a surface is wherever the volume region ends. 

Volume methods은 강력한 numerical 도구입니다. VOF 및 FAVOR™ 기법에 이러한 기법을 구현하는 방법은 첨부된 기사에 자세히 설명되어 있다.

Volume methods are powerful numerical tools. How they are implemented in the VOF and FAVOR™ techniques is described in detail in the accompanying articles.

Simulation of Transient and Three-Dimensional Coating Flows Using a Volume-of-Fluid Technique

Volume-of-Fluid 기법을 사용한 과도 및 3 차원 코팅 흐름 시뮬레이션

슬라이드 코팅 흐름은 정밀 필름 코팅 제품의 제조에 널리 사용됩니다. 코팅 속도를 높이고 코팅 필름의 성능을 향상시키기 위해 슬라이드 코팅 공정을 더 잘 이해하기 위해 상당한 노력을 기울이고 있습니다. 예를 들어 Chen1과 같이 잘 정의 된 한계 이상으로 코팅 속도를 높이면 코팅 비드가 완전히 파손될 수 있음이 입증되었습니다.

이 논문에서는 유체 표면의 임의, 3 차원 및 시간에 따른 변형을 설명 할 수있는 계산 방법에서 얻은 슬라이드 코팅 흐름의 시뮬레이션 결과를 제시합니다. 상용 프로그램에서 사용할 수있는이 방법은 VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) 기술 3,4로 유체를 추적하는 고정 그리드를 사용합니다. 표면 장력, 벽 접착력, 유체 운동량 및 점성 응력은 분석에서 완전히 설명됩니다.

기본 방법은 딥 코팅 데이터와의 비교를 통해 설명됩니다 5. 그런 다음 접촉 선과 동적 접촉각이 우리의 방법에서 암시 적으로 처리되는 방법에 대한 논의를 제시합니다. VOF 기술을 사용하기 때문에 유체를 포함하는 각 제어 볼륨에 작용하는 힘의 합계 만 필요합니다. 그러면 접촉 선의 위치와 동적 접촉각이 계산 된 힘 균형에서 자동으로 발생합니다. 우리의 기술은 코팅 흐름에서 시작 및 비드 분해 현상의 예와 함께 설명됩니다.

그림에서 볼 수 있듯이 신속한 공정의 경우 당사의 접근 방식은 기존 분석 방법으로는 달성하기 어려운 코팅 공정 설계 및 최적화 시뮬레이션을위한 효율성과 견고성을 제공합니다.

Introduction

모든 코팅 공정에는 일정한 조건을 달성하기 전에 코팅 재료가 큰 변형을 겪는 일종의 시작 기간이 포함됩니다. 시작 프로세스의 우수한 특성화는 낭비를 줄이고 프로세스가 원하는 한계 내에서 작동하는지 확인하는 데 종종 중요합니다.

다양한 섭동에 대한 코팅 흐름의 과도 ​​응답에 대한 유사한 이해가 또한 바람직하여 코팅 비드의 파손 및 코팅의 불균일성을 피할 수 있습니다. 코팅 흐름의 역학은 일반적으로 비선형이고 다양한 경쟁 물리적 프로세스의 결합 된 상호 작용을 포함하기 때문에 이론적 조사를 수행하기 위해 특수한 계산 도구에 의존해야합니다.

이 작업을 위해 선택한 모델링 도구의 장점은 고정 그리드를 통해 임의의 유체 변형을 추적 할 수있는 강력한 수치 기법 인 VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) 방법을 사용한다는 것입니다. 코팅 흐름 분석에 중요한 프로그램의 다른 기능과 함께 이것이 수행되는 방식은 다음 섹션에서 설명합니다.

Overview of Numerical Method

여기에 사용 된 수치 프로그램 FLOW-3D®는 1960 년대 중반 Los Alamos National Laboratory에서 개발 된 Marker-and-Cell (MAC) 방법 6에서 유래되었습니다. 원래 MAC 방법에 대한 많은 개선이 수년에 걸쳐 이루어졌습니다.

본 출원에서 가장 흥미로운 것은 유체 영역을 찾기 위해 연속적인 유체 부피 함수에 의해 개별 마커 입자를 대체하는 것입니다. VOF 방법에서는 관심있는 계산 영역을 포함하는 사각형 제어 볼륨의 고정 그리드가 구성됩니다. 각 제어 볼륨에 대해 숫자 F는 액체가 차지하는 볼륨의 비율을 표시하기 위해 유지됩니다.

F 함수를 사용하는 것 외에도 VOF 방법은 날카로운 액체-가스 인터페이스를 유지하는 방식으로 직사각형 셀의 고정 그리드를 통해 F 함수를 전진시키기 위해 특수 수치 기법을 사용합니다. 마지막으로 VOF 방법은 경계면에서 적절한 법선 및 접선 응력 조건을 충족하기 위해 신중하게 구현 된 자유 표면 경계 조건 세트를 사용합니다. 접근 방식의 또 다른 특징은 복잡한 기하학적 영역을 정의하는 방식입니다.

장애물은 제어 볼륨의 일부를 차단할 수 있도록하여 고정 그리드에 포함됩니다. 각 제어 볼륨에서 흐름을 위해 열린 분수 영역 및 볼륨은 지오메트리 표현으로 저장됩니다. FAVOR 방법 7이라고하는이 방법은 형상을 질량, 운동량 및 에너지에 대한 이산화 된 방정식에 자동으로 통합합니다. VOF 및 FAVOR 방법을 사용하면 코팅 문제에 대한 지오메트리 및 초기 유체 구성을 정의하는 데 필요한 복잡한 그리드 생성 프로세스가 없기 때문에 시간과 노력이 절약됩니다.

다음 섹션에서는 플랫 시트에 코팅을 담그는 응용 프로그램과 함께 기본적인 수치 방법의 유용성을 설명합니다.

Dip Coating – A Validation Test

Lee와 Tallmadge는 액체 수조에서 수직으로 인출 된 평판에 딥 코팅하는 과정에 대해 광범위한 조사를 수행했습니다.

이 프로세스는 다양한 상업용 응용 프로그램에서 널리 사용됩니다. 그들의 연구는 2 차원 흐름 (즉, 가장자리 효과 없음)에 초점을 맞추고 실험 데이터에 맞는 경험적 매개 변수를 포함하는 분석 표면 프로파일로 구성되었습니다. 0.085에서 23.9 사이의 모세관 수에 대한 실험 데이터가 수집되었으며, 레이놀즈 수는 0.044에서 12.7 사이입니다. 필름 두께에 대한 실험 데이터는 약 10 % 이하로 추정되는 오류를 가졌습니다.

이 실험에 대한 계산 모델은 코팅 할 시트의 수직 (접선) 속도와 동일한 수직 (접선) 속도가 주어진 직사각형 욕조로 구성되어 매우 간단합니다. 처음에 코팅액은 수평면을 가지며 시트는 충동 적으로 시작됩니다 (그림 1c 참조). 다양한 모세관 수 사례가 시뮬레이션되었으며 모든 경우에 예측 된 필름 두께는 실험 오차 범위 내에있었습니다. 예를 들어 모세관 번호 1.17에 해당하는 경우를 고려하십시오. 시트를 3.31cm / s에서 수조 (밀도 0.885gm / cc, 표면 장력 32.7dynes / cm 및 점도 1159.4cp를 갖는 점성 윤활유)에서 꺼냈다. 우리는 2.5cm의 욕조 너비와 2.0cm의 깊이 (35 x 25 그리드 셀)를 사용했습니다.

필름 흐름을 캡처하기 위해 욕조 위의 2.0cm 영역이 모델에 포함되었습니다 (수직으로 추가 25 개 셀 필요). 수조의 오른쪽은 유체 높이가 일정하게 유지되고 압력이 수압이고 흐름이 계산 영역으로 들어갈 수있는 열린 경계 였지만 휴식에서 시작해야했습니다. 이른바 “정체”경계 조건은 움직이는 시트의 오른쪽으로 충분히 멀리 떨어져있는 경우 수평 무한 욕조에 대한 좋은 근사치입니다. 모델링이 필요한 수조의 폭을 설정하기 위해 여러 가지 계산이 수행되었으며, 필름 두께가이 폭에 크게 민감하지 않다는 것이 밝혀졌으며 그 결과는 실험에서도 발견되었습니다.

그림 1a는 초기 조건, 그림 1b는 계산 된 과도 상태의 스냅 샷, 그림 1c는 최종 정상 상태 결과를 보여줍니다. 처음에 시트에 의해 그려지는 액체 팁의 모양은 정적 접촉각 (즉, 시트와 액체 사이의 접착력)에 따라 달라지며 임의로 10 도로 취해졌습니다. 액체가 끌어 올려짐에 따라, 배출되는 액체 필름을 대체하기 위해 시트쪽으로 흐름이 시작되어야한다는 신호로서 함몰 파가 나머지 수조에 대한 신호로 오른쪽으로 이동합니다. 약 5.0 초만에 정상 상태에 도달합니다. 필름 두께는 0.145cm로 계산되었으며, 이는 0.142cm의 측정 값과 매우 일치합니다.

Free Surface Modeling Methods

An interface between a gas and liquid is often referred to as a free surface. The reason for the “free” designation arises from the large difference in the densities of the gas and liquid (e.g., the ratio of density for water to air is 1000). A low gas density means that its inertia can generally be ignored compared to that of the liquid. In this sense the liquid moves independently, or freely, with respect to the gas. The only influence of the gas is the pressure it exerts on the liquid surface. In other words, the gas-liquid surface is not constrained, but free.

자유 표면 모델링 방법

기체와 액체 사이의 계면은 종종 자유 표면이라고합니다.  ‘자유’라는 호칭이 된 것은 기체와 액체의 밀도가 크게 다르기 때문입니다 (예를 들어, 물 공기에 대한 밀도 비는 1000입니다).  기체의 밀도가 낮다는 것은 액체의 관성에 비해 기체의 관성은 일반적으로 무시할 수 있다는 것을 의미합니다.  이러한 의미에서, 액체는 기체에 대해 독립적으로, 즉 자유롭게 움직입니다.  기체의 유일한 효과는 액체의 표면에 대한 압력입니다.  즉, 기체와 액체의 표면은 제약되어있는 것이 아니라 자유롭다는 것입니다.

In heat-transfer texts the term ‘Stephen Problem’ is often used to describe free boundary problems. In this case, however, the boundaries are phase boundaries, e.g., the boundary between ice and water that changes in response to the heat supplied from convective fluid currents.

열전달에 관한 문서는 자유 경계 문제를 묘사할 때 “Stephen Problem’”라는 용어가 자주 사용됩니다.  그러나 여기에서 경계는 상(phase) 경계, 즉 대류적인 유체의 흐름에 의해 공급된 열에 반응하여 변화하는 얼음과 물 사이의 경계 등을 말합니다.

Whatever the name, it should be obvious that the presence of a free or moving boundary introduces serious complications for any type of analysis. For all but the simplest of problems, it is necessary to resort to numerical solutions. Even then, free surfaces require the introduction of special methods to define their location, their movement, and their influence on a flow.

이름이 무엇이든, 자유 또는 이동 경계가 존재한다는 것은 어떤 유형의 분석에도 복잡한 문제를 야기한다는 것은 분명합니다. 가장 간단한 문제를 제외한 모든 문제에 대해서는 수치 해석에 의존할 필요가 있습니다. 그 경우에도 자유 표면은 위치, 이동 및 흐름에 미치는 영향을 정의하기 위한 특별한 방법이 필요합니다.

In the following discussion we will briefly review the types of numerical approaches that have been used to model free surfaces, indicating the advantages and disadvantages of each method. Regardless of the method employed, there are three essential features needed to properly model free surfaces:

  1. A scheme is needed to describe the shape and location of a surface,
  2. An algorithm is required to evolve the shape and location with time, and
  3. Free-surface boundary conditions must be applied at the surface.

다음 설명에서는 자유 표면 모델링에 사용되어 온 다양한 유형의 수치적 접근에 대해 간략하게 검토하고 각 방법의 장단점을 설명합니다. 어떤 방법을 사용하는지에 관계없이 자유롭게 표면을 적절히 모델화하는 다음의 3 가지 기능이 필요합니다.

  1. 표면의 형상과 위치를 설명하는 방식
  2. 시간에 따라 모양과 위치를 업데이트 하는 알고리즘
  3. 표면에 적용할 자유 표면 경계 조건

Lagrangian Grid Methods

Conceptually, the simplest means of defining and tracking a free surface is to construct a Lagrangian grid that is imbedded in and moves with the fluid. Many finite-element methods use this approach. Because the grid and fluid move together, the grid automatically tracks free surfaces.

라그랑주 격자 법

개념적으로 자유 표면을 정의하고 추적하는 가장 간단한 방법은 유체와 함께 이동하는 라그랑주 격자를 구성하는 것입니다. 많은 유한 요소 방법이 이 접근 방식을 사용합니다. 격자와 유체가 함께 움직이기 때문에 격자는 자동으로 자유 표면을 추적합니다.

At a surface it is necessary to modify the approximating equations to include the proper boundary conditions and to account for the fact that fluid exists only on one side of the boundary. If this is not done, asymmetries develop that eventually destroy the accuracy of a simulation.

표면에서 적절한 경계 조건을 포함하고 유체가 경계의 한면에만 존재한다는 사실을 설명하기 위해 근사 방정식을 수정해야합니다. 이것이 수행되지 않으면 결국 시뮬레이션의 정확도를 훼손하는 비대칭이 발생합니다.

The principal limitation of Lagrangian methods is that they cannot track surfaces that break apart or intersect. Even large amplitude surface motions can be difficult to track without introducing regridding techniques such as the Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) method. References 1970 and 1974 may be consulted for early examples of these approaches.

라그랑지안 방법의 주요 제한은 분리되거나 교차하는 표면을 추적 할 수 없다는 것입니다. ALE (Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian) 방법과 같은 격자 재생성 기법을 도입하지 않으면 진폭이 큰 표면 움직임도 추적하기 어려울 수 있습니다. 이러한 접근법의 초기 예를 보려면 참고 문헌 1970 및 1974를 참조하십시오.

The remaining free-surface methods discussed here use a fixed, Eulerian grid as the basis for computations so that more complicated surface motions may be treated.

여기에서 논의된 나머지 자유 표면 방법은 보다 복잡한 표면 움직임을 처리할 수 있도록 고정된 오일러 그리드를 계산의 기준으로 사용합니다.

Surface Height Method

Low amplitude sloshing, shallow water waves, and other free-surface motions in which the surface does not deviate too far from horizontal, can be described by the height, H, of the surface relative to some reference elevation. Time evolution of the height is governed by the kinematic equation, where (u,v,w) are fluid velocities in the (x,y,z) directions. This equation is a mathematical expression of the fact that the surface must move with the fluid:

표면 높이 법

낮은 진폭의 슬로 싱, 얕은 물결 및 표면이 수평에서 너무 멀리 벗어나지 않는 기타 자유 표면 운동은 일부 기준 고도에 대한 표면의 높이 H로 설명 할 수 있습니다. 높이의 시간 진화는 운동학 방정식에 의해 제어되며, 여기서 (u, v, w)는 (x, y, z) 방향의 유체 속도입니다. 이 방정식은 표면이 유체와 함께 움직여야한다는 사실을 수학적으로 표현한 것입니다.

Finite-difference approximations to this equation are easy to implement. Further, only the height values at a set of horizontal locations must be recorded so the memory requirements for a three-dimensional numerical solution are extremely small. Finally, the application of free-surface boundary conditions is also simplified by the condition on the surface that it remains nearly horizontal. Examples of this technique can be found in References 1971 and 1975.

이 방정식의 유한 차분 근사를 쉽게 실행할 수 있습니다.  또한 3 차원 수치 해법의 메모리 요구 사항이 극도로 작아지도록 같은 높이의 위치 값만을 기록해야합니다.  마지막으로 자유 표면 경계 조건의 적용도 거의 수평을 유지하는 표면의 조건에 의해 간소화됩니다.  이 방법의 예는 참고 문헌의 1971 및 1975을 참조하십시오.

Marker-and-Cell (MAC) Method

The earliest numerical method devised for time-dependent, free-surface, flow problems was the Marker-and-Cell (MAC) method (see Ref. 1965). This scheme is based on a fixed, Eulerian grid of control volumes. The location of fluid within the grid is determined by a set of marker particles that move with the fluid, but otherwise have no volume, mass or other properties.

MAC 방법

시간 의존성을 가지는 자유 표면 흐름의 문제에 대해 처음 고안된 수치 법이 MAC (Marker-and-Cell) 법입니다 (참고 문헌 1965 참조).  이 구조는 컨트롤 볼륨 고정 오일러 격자를 기반으로합니다.  격자 내의 유체의 위치는 유체와 함께 움직이고, 그 이외는 부피, 질량, 기타 특성을 갖지 않는 일련의 마커 입자에 의해 결정됩니다.

Grid cells containing markers are considered occupied by fluid, while those without markers are empty (or void). A free surface is defined to exist in any grid cell that contains particles and that also has at least one neighboring grid cell that is void. The location and orientation of the surface within the cell was not part of the original MAC method.

마커를 포함한 격자 셀은 유체로 채워져있는 것으로 간주되며 마커가 없는 격자 셀은 빈(무효)것입니다.  입자를 포함하고, 적어도 하나의 인접 격자 셀이 무효인 격자의 자유 표면은 존재하는 것으로 정의됩니다.  셀 표면의 위치와 방향은 원래의 MAC 법에 포함되지 않았습니다.

Evolution of surfaces was computed by moving the markers with locally interpolated fluid velocities. Some special treatments were required to define the fluid properties in newly filled grid cells and to cancel values in cells that are emptied.

표면의 발전(개선)은 국소적으로 보간된 유체 속도로 마커를 이동하여 계산되었습니다.  새롭게 충전된 격자 셀의 유체 특성을 정의하거나 비어있는 셀의 값을 취소하거나 하려면 특별한 처리가 필요했습니다.

The application of free-surface boundary conditions consisted of assigning the gas pressure to all surface cells. Also, velocity components were assigned to all locations on or immediately outside the surface in such a way as to approximate conditions of incompressibility and zero-surface shear stress.

자유 표면 경계 조건의 적용은 모든 표면 셀에 가스 압력을 할당하는 것으로 구성되었습니다. 또한 속도 성분은 비압축성 및 제로 표면 전단 응력의 조건을 근사화하는 방식으로 표면 위 또는 외부의 모든 위치에 할당되었습니다.

The extraordinary success of the MAC method in solving a wide range of complicated free-surface flow problems is well documented in numerous publications. One reason for this success is that the markers do not track surfaces directly, but instead track fluid volumes. Surfaces are simply the boundaries of the volumes, and in this sense surfaces may appear, merge or disappear as volumes break apart or coalesce.

폭넓게 복잡한 자유 표면 흐름 문제 해결에 MAC 법이 놀라운 성공을 거두고 있는 것은 수많은 문헌에서 충분히 입증되고 있습니다.  이 성공 이유 중 하나는 마커가 표면을 직접 추적하는 것이 아니라 유체의 체적을 추적하는 것입니다.  표면은 체적의 경계에 불과하며, 그러한 의미에서 표면은 분할 또는 합체된 부피로 출현(appear), 병합, 소멸 할 가능성이 있습니다.

A variety of improvements have contributed to an increase in the accuracy and applicability of the original MAC method. For example, applying gas pressures at interpolated surface locations within cells improves the accuracy in problems driven by hydrostatic forces, while the inclusion of surface tension forces extends the method to a wider class of problems (see Refs. 1969, 1975).

다양한 개선으로 인해 원래 MAC 방법의 정확성과 적용 가능성이 증가했습니다. 예를 들어, 셀 내 보간 된 표면 위치에 가스 압력을 적용하면 정 수력으로 인한 문제의 정확도가 향상되는 반면 표면 장력의 포함은 방법을 더 광범위한 문제로 확장합니다 (참조 문헌. 1969, 1975).

In spite of its successes, the MAC method has been used primarily for two-dimensional simulations because it requires considerable memory and CPU time to accommodate the necessary number of marker particles. Typically, an average of about 16 markers in each grid cell is needed to ensure an accurate tracking of surfaces undergoing large deformations.

수많은 성공에도 불구하고 MAC 방법은 필요한 수의 마커 입자를 수용하기 위해 상당한 메모리와 CPU 시간이 필요하기 때문에 주로 2 차원 시뮬레이션에 사용되었습니다. 일반적으로 큰 변형을 겪는 표면의 정확한 추적을 보장하려면 각 그리드 셀에 평균 약 16 개의 마커가 필요합니다.

Another limitation of marker particles is that they don’t do a very good job of following flow processes in regions involving converging/diverging flows. Markers are usually interpreted as tracking the centroids of small fluid elements. However, when those fluid elements get pulled into long convoluted strands, the markers may no longer be good indicators of the fluid configuration. This can be seen, for example, at flow stagnation points where markers pile up in one direction, but are drawn apart in a perpendicular direction. If they are pulled apart enough (i.e., further than one grid cell width) unphysical voids may develop in the flow.

마커 입자의 또 다른 한계는 수렴 / 발산 흐름이 포함된 영역에서 흐름 프로세스를 따라가는 작업을 잘 수행하지 못한다는 것입니다. 마커는 일반적으로 작은 유체 요소의 중심을 추적하는 것으로 해석됩니다. 그러나 이러한 유체 요소가 길고 복잡한 가닥으로 당겨지면 마커가 더 이상 유체 구성의 좋은 지표가 될 수 없습니다. 예를 들어 마커가 한 방향으로 쌓여 있지만 수직 방향으로 떨어져 있는 흐름 정체 지점에서 볼 수 있습니다. 충분히 분리되면 (즉, 하나의 그리드 셀 너비 이상) 비 물리적 공극이 흐름에서 발생할 수 있습니다.

Surface Marker Method

One way to limit the memory and CPU time consumption of markers is to keep marker particles only on surfaces and not in the interior of fluid regions. Of course, this removes the volume tracking property of the MAC method and requires additional logic to determine when and how surfaces break apart or coalesce.

표면 마커 법

마커의 메모리 및 CPU 시간의 소비를 제한하는 방법 중 하나는 마커 입자를 유체 영역의 내부가 아니라 표면에만 보존하는 것입니다.  물론 이는 MAC 법의 체적 추적 특성이 배제되기 때문에 표면이 분할 또는 합체하는 방식과 시기를 특정하기위한 논리를 추가해야합니다.

In two dimensions the marker particles on a surface can be arranged in a linear order along the surface. This arrangement introduces several advantages, such as being able to maintain a uniform particle spacing and simplifying the computation of intersections between different surfaces. Surface markers also provide a convenient way to locate the surface within a grid cell for the application of boundary conditions.

2 차원의 경우 표면 마커 입자는 표면을 따라 선형으로 배치 할 수 있습니다.  이 배열은 입자의 간격을 균일하게 유지할 수있는 별도의 표면이 교차하는 부분의 계산이 쉽다는 등 몇 가지 장점이 있습니다.  또한 표면 마커를 사용하여 경계 조건을 적용하면 격자 셀의 표면을 간단한 방법으로 찾을 수 있습니다.

Unfortunately, in three-dimensions there is no simple way to order particles on surfaces, and this leads to a major failing of the surface marker technique. Regions may exist where surfaces are expanding and no markers fill the space. Without markers the configuration of the surface is unknown, consequently there is no way to add markers. Reference 1975 contains examples that show the advantages and limitations of this method.

불행히도 3 차원에서는 표면에 입자를 정렬하는 간단한 방법이 없으며 이로 인해 표면 마커 기술이 크게 실패합니다. 표면이 확장되고 마커가 공간을 채우지 않는 영역이 존재할 수 있습니다. 마커가 없으면 표면의 구성을 알 수 없으므로 마커를 추가 할 방법이 없습니다.
참고 문헌 1975이 방법의 장점과 한계를 보여주는 예제가 포함되어 있습니다.

Volume-of-Fluid (VOF) Method

The last method to be discussed is based on the concept of a fluid volume fraction. The idea for this approach originated as a way to have the powerful volume-tracking feature of the MAC method without its large memory and CPU costs.

VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) 법

마지막으로 설명하는 방법은 유체 부피 분율의 개념을 기반으로합니다. 이 접근 방식에 대한 아이디어는 대용량 메모리 및 CPU 비용없이 MAC 방식의 강력한 볼륨 추적 기능을 갖는 방법에서 시작되었습니다.

Within each grid cell (control volume) it is customary to retain only one value for each flow quantity (e.g., pressure, velocity, temperature, etc.) For this reason it makes little sense to retain more information for locating a free surface. Following this reasoning, the use of a single quantity, the fluid volume fraction in each grid cell, is consistent with the resolution of the other flow quantities.

각 격자 셀 (제어 체적) 내에서 각 유량 (예 : 압력, 속도, 온도 등)에 대해 하나의 값만 유지하는 것이 일반적입니다. 이러한 이유로 자유 표면을 찾기 위해 더 많은 정보를 유지하는 것은 거의 의미가 없습니다. 이러한 추론에 따라 각 격자 셀의 유체 부피 분율인 단일 수량의 사용은 다른 유량의 해상도와 일치합니다.

If we know the amount of fluid in each cell it is possible to locate surfaces, as well as determine surface slopes and surface curvatures. Surfaces are easy to locate because they lie in cells partially filled with fluid or between cells full of fluid and cells that have no fluid.

각 셀 내의 유체의 양을 알고 있는 경우, 표면의 위치 뿐만 아니라  표면 경사와 표면 곡률을 결정하는 것이 가능합니다.  표면은 유체 가 부분 충전 된 셀 또는 유체가 전체에 충전 된 셀과 유체가 전혀없는 셀 사이에 존재하기 때문에 쉽게 찾을 수 있습니다.

Slopes and curvatures are computed by using the fluid volume fractions in neighboring cells. It is essential to remember that the volume fraction should be a step function, i.e., having a value of either one or zero. Knowing this, the volume fractions in neighboring cells can then be used to locate the position of fluid (and its slope and curvature) within a particular cell.

경사와 곡률은 인접 셀의 유체 체적 점유율을 사용하여 계산됩니다.  체적 점유율은 계단 함수(step function)이어야 합니다, 즉, 값이 1 또는 0 인 것을 기억하는 것이 중요합니다.  이 것을 안다면, 인접 셀의 부피 점유율을 사용하여 특정 셀 내의 유체의 위치 (및 그 경사와 곡률)을 찾을 수 있습니다.

Free-surface boundary conditions must be applied as in the MAC method, i.e., assigning the proper gas pressure (plus equivalent surface tension pressure) as well as determining what velocity components outside the surface should be used to satisfy a zero shear-stress condition at the surface. In practice, it is sometimes simpler to assign velocity gradients instead of velocity components at surfaces.

자유 표면 경계 조건을 MAC 법과 동일하게 적용해야 합니다.  즉, 적절한 기체 압력 (및 대응하는 표면 장력)을 할당하고, 또한 표면에서 제로 전단 응력을 충족 시키려면 표면 외부의 어떤 속도 성분을 사용할 필요가 있는지를 확인합니다.  사실, 표면에서의 속도 성분 대신 속도 구배를 지정하는 것이보다 쉬울 수 있습니다.

Finally, to compute the time evolution of surfaces, a technique is needed to move volume fractions through a grid in such a way that the step-function nature of the distribution is retained. The basic kinematic equation for fluid fractions is similar to that for the height-function method, where F is the fraction of fluid function:

마지막으로, 표면의 시간 변화를 계산하려면 분포의 계단 함수의 성질이 유지되는 방법으로 격자를 통과하고 부피 점유율을 이동하는 방법이 필요합니다.  유체 점유율의 기본적인 운동학방정식은 높이 함수(height-function) 법과 유사합니다.  F는 유체 점유율 함수입니다.

A straightforward numerical approximation cannot be used to model this equation because numerical diffusion and dispersion errors destroy the sharp, step-function nature of the F distribution.

이 방정식을 모델링 할 때 간단한 수치 근사는 사용할 수 없습니다.  수치의 확산과 분산 오류는 F 분포의 명확한 계단 함수(step-function)의 성질이 손상되기 때문입니다.

It is easy to accurately model the solution to this equation in one dimension such that the F distribution retains its zero or one values. Imagine fluid is filling a column of cells from bottom to top. At some instant the fluid interface is in the middle region of a cell whose neighbor below is filled and whose neighbor above is empty. The fluid orientation in the neighboring cells means the interface must be located above the bottom of the cell by an amount equal to the fluid fraction in the cell. Then the computation of how much fluid to move into the empty cell above can be modified to first allow the empty region of the surface-containing cell to fill before transmitting fluid on to the next cell.

F 분포가 0 또는 1의 값을 유지하는 같은 1 차원에서이 방정식의 해를 정확하게 모델링하는 것은 간단합니다.  1 열의 셀에 위에서 아래까지 유체가 충전되는 경우를 상상해보십시오.  어느 순간에 액체 계면은 셀의 중간 영역에 있고, 그 아래쪽의 인접 셀은 충전되어 있고, 상단 인접 셀은 비어 있습니다.  인접 셀 내의 유체의 방향은 계면과 셀의 하단과의 거리가 셀 내의 유체 점유율과 같아야 한다는 것을 의미합니다.  그 다음 먼저 표면을 포함하는 셀의 빈 공간을 충전 한 후 다음 셀로 유체를 보내도록 위쪽의 빈 셀에 이동하는 유체의 양의 계산을 변경할 수 있습니다.

In two or three dimensions a similar procedure of using information from neighboring cells can be used, but it is not possible to be as accurate as in the one-dimensional case. The problem with more than one dimension is that an exact determination of the shape and location of the surface cannot be made. Nevertheless, this technique can be made to work well as evidenced by the large number of successful applications that have been completed using the VOF method. References 1975, 1980, and 1981 should be consulted for the original work on this technique.

2 차원과 3 차원에서 인접 셀의 정보를 사용하는 유사한 절차를 사용할 수 있지만, 1 차원의 경우만큼 정확하게 하는 것은 불가능합니다.  2 차원 이상의 경우의 문제는 표면의 모양과 위치를 정확히 알 수없는 것입니다.  그래도 VOF 법을 사용하여 달성 된 다수의 성공 사례에서 알 수 있듯이 이 방법을 잘 작동시킬 수 있습니다.  이 기법에 관한 초기의 연구 내용은 참고 문헌 1975,1980,1981를 참조하십시오.

The VOF method has lived up to its goal of providing a method that is as powerful as the MAC method without the overhead of that method. Its use of volume tracking as opposed to surface-tracking function means that it is robust enough to handle the breakup and coalescence of fluid masses. Further, because it uses a continuous function it does not suffer from the lack of divisibility that discrete particles exhibit.

VOF 법은 MAC 법만큼 강력한 기술을 오버 헤드없이 제공한다는 목표를 달성 해 왔습니다.  표면 추적이 아닌 부피 추적 기능을 사용하는 것은 유체 질량의 분할과 합체를 처리하는 데 충분한 내구성을 가지고 있다는 것을 의미합니다.  또한 연속 함수를 사용하기 때문에 이산된 입자에서 발생하는 숫자를 나눌 수 없는 문제를 겪지 않게 됩니다.

Variable-Density Approximation to the VOF Method

One feature of the VOF method that requires special treatment is the application of boundary conditions. As a surface moves through a grid, the cells containing fluid continually change, which means that the solution region is also changing. At the free boundaries of this changing region the proper free surface stress conditions must also be applied.

VOF 법의 가변 밀도 근사

VOF 법의 특수 처리가 필요한 기능 중 하나는 경계 조건의 적용입니다.  표면이 격자를 통과하여 이동할 때 유체를 포함하는 셀은 끊임없이 변화합니다.  즉, 계산 영역도 변화하고 있다는 것입니다.  이 변화하고있는 영역의 자유 경계에는 적절한 자유 표면 응력 조건도 적용해야합니다.

Updating the flow region and applying boundary conditions is not a trivial task. For this reason some approximations to the VOF method have been used in which flow is computed in both liquid and gas regions. Typically, this is done by treating the flow as a single fluid having a variable density. The F function is used to define the density. An argument is then made that because the flow equations are solved in both liquid and gas regions there is no need to set interfacial boundary conditions.

유체 영역의 업데이트 및 경계 조건의 적용은 중요한 작업입니다.  따라서 액체와 기체의 두 영역에서 흐름이 계산되는 VOF 법에 약간의 근사가 사용되어 왔습니다.  일반적으로 가변 밀도를 가진 단일 유체로 흐름을 처리함으로써 이루어집니다.  밀도를 정의하려면 F 함수를 사용합니다.  그리고, 흐름 방정식은 액체와 기체의 두 영역에서 계산되기 때문에 계면의 경계 조건을 설정할 필요가 없다는 논증이 이루어집니다.

Unfortunately, this approach does not work very well in practice for two reasons. First, the sensitivity of a gas region to pressure changes is generally much greater than that in liquid regions. This makes it difficult to achieve convergence in the coupled pressure-velocity solution. Sometimes very large CPU times are required with this technique.

공교롭게도 이 방법은 두 가지 이유로 인해 실제로는 그다지 잘 작동하지 않습니다.  하나는 압력의 변화에 대한 기체 영역의 감도가 일반적으로 액체 영역보다 훨씬 큰 것입니다.  따라서 압력 – 속도 결합 해법 수렴을 달성하는 것은 어렵습니다.  이 기술은 필요한 CPU 시간이 매우 커질 수 있습니다.

The second, and more significant, reason is associated with the possibility of a tangential velocity discontinuity at interfaces. Because of their different responses to pressure, gas and liquid velocities at an interface are usually quite different. In the Variable-Density model interfaces are moved with an average velocity, but this often leads to unrealistic movement of the interfaces.

두 번째 더 중요한 이유는 계면에서 접선 속도가 불연속이되는 가능성에 관련이 있습니다.  압력에 대한 반응이 다르기 때문에 계면에서 기체와 액체의 속도는 일반적으로 크게 다릅니다.  가변 밀도 모델은 계면은 평균 속도로 동작하지만, 이는 계면의 움직임이 비현실적으로 되는 경우가 많습니다.

Even though the Variable-Density method is sometimes referred to as a VOF method, because is uses a fraction-of-fluid function, this designation is incorrect. For accurately tracking sharp liquid-gas interfaces it is necessary to actually treat the interface as a discontinuity. This means it is necessary to have a technique to define an interface discontinuity, as well as a way to impose the proper boundary conditions at that interface. It is also necessary to use a special numerical method to track interface motions though a grid without destroying its character as a discontinuity.

가변 밀도 방법은 유체 분율 함수를 사용하기 때문에 VOF 방법이라고도하지만 이것은 올바르지 않습니다. 날카로운 액체-가스 인터페이스를 정확하게 추적하려면 인터페이스를 실제로 불연속으로 처리해야합니다. 즉, 인터페이스 불연속성을 정의하는 기술과 해당 인터페이스에서 적절한 경계 조건을 적용하는 방법이 필요합니다. 또한 불연속성으로 특성을 훼손하지 않고 격자를 통해 인터페이스 동작을 추적하기 위해 특수한 수치 방법을 사용해야합니다.

Summary

A brief discussion of the various techniques used to numerically model free surfaces has been given here with some comments about their relative advantages and disadvantages. Readers should not be surprised to learn that there have been numerous variations of these basic techniques proposed over the years. Probably the most successful of the methods is the VOF technique because of its simplicity and robustness. It is this method, with some refinement, that is used in the FLOW-3D program.

여기에서는 자유 표면을 수치적으로 모델링 할 때 사용하는 다양한 방법에 대해 상대적인 장점과 단점에 대한 설명을 포함하여 쉽게 설명하였습니다.  오랜 세월에 걸쳐 이러한 기본적인 방법이 많이 제안되어 온 것을 알고도 독자 여러분은 놀라지 않을 것입니다.  아마도 가장 성과를 거둔 방법은 간결하고 강력한 VOF 법 입니다.  이 방법에 일부 개량을 더한 것이 현재 FLOW-3D 프로그램에서 사용되고 있습니다.

Attempts to improve the VOF method have centered on better, more accurate, ways to move fluid fractions through a grid. Other developments have attempted to apply the method in connection with body-fitted grids and to employ more than one fluid fraction function in order to model more than one fluid component. A discussion of these developments is beyond the scope of this introduction.

VOF 법의 개선은 더 나은, 더 정확한 방법으로 유체 점유율을 격자를 통과하여 이동하는 것에 중점을 두어 왔습니다.  기타 개발은 물체 적합 격자(body-fitted grids) 관련 기법을 적용하거나 여러 유체 성분을 모델링하기 위해 여러 유체 점유율 함수를 채용하기도 했습니다.  이러한 개발에 대한 논의는 여기에서의 설명 범위를 벗어납니다.

업무에 적합한 올바른 CFD 소프트웨어 선택 방법

업무에 적합한 올바른 CFD 소프트웨어 선택 방법

많은 제품들이 모두 자신의 소프트웨어가 가장 적합하다고 말하기 떄문에, 사람들은 자신의 업무에 적합한 CFD 소프트웨어 선택에 어려움을 겪습니다. 그 이유는 유체 흐름 및 열 전달 분석을 위한 소프트웨어 패키지는 다양한 형태로 제공됩니다. 이러한 패키지는 물리적 근사치와 수치적 솔루션 기법이 크게 다르기 때문에 적합한 패키지를 선택하는 것이 어렵습니다.

아래 내용에서 올바른 CFD 소프트웨어를 선택할 때 고려해야 할 중요한 항목을 설명합니다.

Spillway’s tailrace over natural rock

1. 메싱 및 지오메트리

유한 요소 또는 “바디 맞춤 좌표”를 사용하는 솔루션 방법은 유동 영역의 기하학적 구조를 준수하는 해석용 그리드를 생성해야합니다. 정확한 수치 근사를 위해 허용 가능한 요소 크기와 모양으로 이러한 그리드를 생성하는 것은 쉽지 않은 작업입니다. 복잡한 경우 이러한 유형의 그리드 생성에는 며칠 또는 몇주의 노력이 소요될 수 있습니다. 일부 프로그램은 직사각형 그리드 요소만 사용하여 이러한 생성 문제를 제거하려고 시도하지만 흐름 및 열 전달 특성을 변경하는 “계단현상” 경계 문제를 해결해야 합니다. FLOW-3D는 FAVOR ™ (분수 면적 / 체적) 방법을 사용하여 기하학적 특성이 매끄럽게 포함된 생성하기 쉬운 직사각형 그리드를 사용하여 두 문제를 모두 해결합니다. 간단하고 강력한 솔리드 모델러가 FLOW-3D와 함께 패키지로 제공되거나 사용자가 CAD 프로그램에서 기하학적 데이터를 가져올 수 있습니다.

2. 운동량 방정식과 대략적인 흐름 모델

유체 운동량의 정확한 처리는 여러 가지 이유로 중요합니다. 첫째, 복잡한 지오메트리를 통해 유체가 어떻게 흐를지 예측할 수 있는 유일한 방법입니다. 둘째, 유체에 의해 가해지는 동적 힘 (즉, 압력)은 모멘텀을고려하여야만 계산할 수 있습니다. 마지막으로, 열 에너지의 대류 이동을 계산하려면 개별 유체 입자가 다른 유체 입자 및 제한 경계와 관련하여 어떻게 움직이는지를 정확하게 파악할 수 있어야 합니다.

이것은 운동량의 정확한 처리를 의미합니다. 모멘텀의 보존을 대략적으로만 하는 단순화된 흐름 모델은 실제적인 유체 구성과 온도 분포를 예측하는데 사용할 수 없기 때문에 FLOW-3D에서는 사용되지 않습니다.

3. 액체-고체 열 전달 영역

액체와 고체 (예 : 금속-금형) 사이의 열 전달에는 계면 영역의 정확한 추정이 필요합니다. 계단 경계는 이 영역을 과대 평가합니다. 예를 들어, 실린더의 표면적은 27 %의 비율로 과대 평가됩니다. FLOW-3D 전 처리기의 각 제어 볼륨에 대해 FAVOR ™ 방법에 의해 정확한 계면 영역이 자동으로 계산됩니다.

4. 액체-고체 열 전달에 대한 볼륨 효과 제어

제어 볼륨의 크기는 액체 / 고체 인터페이스를 포함하는 제어 볼륨에서도 열이 흐르기 때문에 액체와 고체 사이에서 교환되는 열의 속도와 양에 영향을 미칠 수 있습니다. FLOW-3D에서는 액체-고체 인터페이스에서 열 전달 속도를 계산할 때 체적 크기와 전도도가 고려됩니다.

5. 암시성(Implicitness)과 정확성

비선형 및 결합 방정식에 대한 암시적 방법에는 각 반복에서 under-relaxation 특성이 있는 반복 솔루션 방법이 필요합니다. 이 동작은 일부 상황에서 심각한 오류 (또는 매우 느린 수렴)를 일으킬 수 있습니다 (예 : 큰 종횡비로 제어 볼륨을 사용하거나 실제로 중요하지 않은 효과를 예상하여 암시성이 사용되는 경우).

FLOW-3D에서는 계산 노력FLOW-3D에서는 계산 작업이 덜 필요하기 때문에 가능한 경우 언제나 명시적 수치 방법을 사용하며, 수치 안정성 요구 사항은 정확도 요구 사항과 동일합니다. Implicit vs. Explicit Numerical Methods 문서에서 자세히 알아보세요.

6. 대류 전송을 위한 암시적 수치 방법 (Implicit Numerical Methods)

임의적으로 큰 시간 단계 크기를 계산에 사용할 수 있는 암시적 수치 기법은 CPU 시간을 줄이는데 널리 사용되는 방법입니다. 불행히도 이러한 방법은 대류 해석에 정확하지 않습니다. 암시적 방법은 근사 방정식에 확산 효과를 도입하여 시간 단계 독립성을 얻습니다. 물리적 확산(예 : 열전도)에 수치적 확산을 추가하는 것은 확산 속도만 수정하기 때문에 심각한 문제를 일으키지 않을 수 있습니다. 그러나 대류 과정에 수치 확산을 추가하면 모델링되는 물리적 현상의 특성이 완전히 바뀝니다. FLOW-3D에서 시간 단계는 프로그램에 의해 자동으로 제어되어 정확한 시간 근사치를 보장합니다.

7. 이완 및 수렴 매개 변수 (Relaxation and Convergence Parameters)

암시적 근사를 사용하는 수치 방법은 하나 이상의 수렴 및 이완 매개 변수를 선택해야합니다. 이러한 매개 변수를 잘못 선택하면 발산 또는 수렴 속도가 느려질 수 있습니다. FLOW-3D에서는 하나의 수렴 및 하나의 이완 매개 변수만 사용되며, 두 매개 변수는 프로그램에 의해 동적으로 선택됩니다. 사용자는 수치해석 솔버를 제어하는 ​​매개 변수를 설정할 필요가 없습니다.

8. 자유 표면 추적

액체-가스 인터페이스 (즉, 자유 표면)를 모델링하는 데 사용되는 두 가지 방법이 있습니다. 그 중 하나는 액체 및 가스 영역의 흐름을 계산하고 계면을 유체 밀도의 급격한 변화로 처리하는 것입니다. 일반적으로 밀도 불연속성은 고차 수치 근사를 사용하여 모델링됩니다.

불행히도, 이 치료는 몇몇 그리드 셀에 걸쳐 인터페이스가 매끄럽게 진행되도록 해주며, 그러한 인터페이스에 일반적으로 존재하는 접선 유속의 급격한 변화는 설명하지 않습니다. 또한 이 기법은 가스가 계산 영역으로 유입되는 액체로 대체될 경우 탈출 포트 또는 가스의 싱크로도 보완해야 합니다. 또한 이러한 방법은 일반적으로 유체의 비압축성을 만족시키기 위해 더 많은 노력을 기울여야 합니다.  가스 영역은 거의 균일한 압력 조정을 통해 솔루션 수렴 속도를 늦추는 경향이 있기 때문에 이러한 현상이 발생합니다.

FLOW-3D에서는 다른 기술인 VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) 방법이 사용됩니다. 이것은 인터페이스가 단계 불연속으로 긴밀하게 유지되는 진정한 3 차원 인터페이스 추적 체계입니다. 또한 선택적 표면 장력을 포함하여 수직 및 접선 응력 경계 조건이 인터페이스에 적용됩니다. 가스 영역은 사용자가 모델에 포함되도록 요청하지 않는 한 계산되지 않습니다.

CFD에 대해서

What You Should Know About CFD Modeling when Selecting a CFD Package

유체 흐름 및 열 전달 해석용 소프트웨어 패키지에는 여러 형태가 있습니다. 물리적 근사와 수치 해법의 기법이 패키지마다 크게 다르기 때문에 적절한 패키지를 선택하는 것은 매우 어렵습니다. 다음 설명에서는 열유동 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어를 선택할 때 고려해야 할 중요한 몇 가지를 소개합니다.

Software packages for fluid flow and heat transfer analysis come in many forms. These packages differ greatly in their physical approximations and numerical solution techniques, which makes the selection of a suitable package a challenging proposition. The following discussion covers some important items to consider when choosing flow simulation software.

Meshing and Geometry

유한 요소 또는 “body-fitted coordinates”를 채용하고 있는 수치해석 방법은 유체 영역의 기하학적 형상에 적합한 격자를 생성해야 합니다. 정확한 수치 근사치를 얻기 위해 허용 할 수 있는 요소 크기 및 형상에서 이러한 격자를 생성하는 것은 매우 중요한 작업입니다.

복잡한 경우에는 이와 같은 방법으로 격자를 생성하면 며칠 또는 몇 주가 걸릴 수 있습니다.  어떤 프로그램은 사각형의 격자 요소만을 사용함으로써 문제를 해결하려고 하지만, 그럴 경우에는 경계부분에 계단이 생기고 흐름과 열전달 특성이 달라지는 문제에 직면하게 됩니다.

FLOW-3D는 FAVOR™(면적율 / 부피 비율)법 을 사용하여 지오메트리의 특성을 원활하게 포함하므로써, 간단한 사각형 격자만으로도 두 문제를 해결할 수 있습니다.  또한, 간단하고 강력한 솔리드 모델러가 FLOW-3D 패키지에 기본 포함되어 있으며, CAD 프로그램에서 생성한 기하형상 데이터를 가져올 수 있습니다.

Solution methods that employ finite-element or “body-fitted coordinates” require the generation of a solution grid that conforms to the geometry of the flow region. It is a non-trivial task to generate these grids with acceptable element sizes and shapes for accurate numerical approximations. In complicated cases this type of grid generation may consume days or even weeks of effort. Some programs attemptto eliminate this generation problem by using only rectangular grid elements, but then they must contend with “stair-step” boundaries that alter flow and heat-transfer properties. FLOW-3D solves both problems by using easy-to-generate rectangular grids in which geometric features are smoothly embedded using the FAVOR™ (fractional area/volume) method. A simple and powerful solids modeler is packaged with FLOW-3D or users may import geometric data from a CAD program.

Momentum Equation vs. Approximate Flow Models

유체 운동량의 정확한 처리가 중요한 몇 가지 이유가 있습니다.  첫째, 이것은 복잡한 기하학적 형상에서 유체가 어떻게 흐르는지를 예측하는 유일한 방법입니다.  둘째, 액체에 의하여 걸린 동적인 힘(압력)은 운동량에서만 계산할 수 있습니다.  마지막으로, 열 에너지의 대류 수송을 계산하려면 다른 유체 입자 및 경계에 대한 개별 유체 입자의 상대적인 움직임을 정확하게 파악하는 것이 필요합니다. 이것은 운동량의 정확한 처리를 의미합니다.  운동량 보존을 대충 근사하기만 한 CFD 모델은 FLOW-3D에서는 사용되지 않습니다.  이러한 모델은 현실적인 유체 구성 및 온도 분포 예측에 사용할 수 없기 때문입니다.

An accurate treatment of fluid momentum is important for several reasons. First, it is the only way to predict how fluid will flow through complicated geometry. Second, the dynamic forces (i.e., pressures) exerted by the fluid can only be computed from momentum considerations. Finally, to compute the convective transport of thermal energy, it is necessary to have an accurate picture of how individual fluid particles move in relation to other fluid particles and confining boundaries. This implies an accurate treatment of momentum. Simplified flow models that only crudely approximate the conservation of momentum are not used in FLOW-3D because they cannot be used to predict realistic fluid configurations and temperature distributions.

Liquid-Solid Heat Transfer Area

액체와 고체 사이 (금속 주형 등)의 열전달은 경계면 면적의 정확한 추정이 필요합니다.  경계가 계단 모양으로 되어 있는 경우, 보통 이 면적이 크게 추정됩니다.  예를 들어, 실린더의 표면적은 약 27 %정도 크게 추정됩니다.  FLOW-3D의 경우 정확한 경계면 면적은 FAVOR™법에 따라 FLOW-3D 전처리기에서 컨트롤 볼륨마다 자동으로 계산됩니다.

Heat transfer between a liquid and a solid (e.g., metal-to-mold) requires an accurate estimate of the interfacial area. Stair-step boundaries over-estimate this area; for example, the surface area of a cylinder would be over-estimated by a factor of 27%. Accurate interfacial areas are automatically computed by the FAVOR™ method for each control volume in the FLOW-3D pre-processor.

Control Volume Effects on Liquid-Solid Heat Transfer

컨트롤 볼륨의 크기가 액체와 고체 사이에서 교환되는 열 비율과 양에 영향을 줄 수 있습니다.  이것은 열이 액체와 고체의 경계면을 포함하는 컨트롤 볼륨을 흐를 필요가 있기 때문입니다.  FLOW-3D는 액체와 고체의 경계면에 걸쳐 열 전달률을 계산할 때 컨트롤 볼륨의 크기와 전도율이 고려됩니다.

The size of control volumes can influence the rate and amount of heat exchanged between a liquid and solid because heat must also flow in the control volumes containing the liquid/solid interface. In FLOW-3D control volume sizes and their conductivities are accounted for when computing heat transfer rates across liquid-solid interfaces.

Implicitness and Accuracy

비선형 방정식과 결합 방정식의 Implicit 방법은 반복 될 때마다 under-relaxation 특성을 갖는 반복적 해법이 필요합니다.  이 동작은 상황에 따라 심각한 오류 (또는 수렴 속도의 급격한 하락)가 발생할 수 있습니다.  예를 들어, 비율이 큰 컨트롤 볼륨을 사용하는 경우나, 실제로는 중요하지 않은 효과를 예상하고 암시적인 해법을 사용하는 경우 등입니다.  FLOW-3D는 가능한 명시적인 수치해법이 사용되고 있습니다.  이것은 필요한 계산량이 적고, 수치 안정성의 요구 사항이 요구된 정밀도에 상응하기 때문입니다.  자세한 내용은 “암시적인 수치해법과 명시적인 수치해법“을 참조하십시오.

Implicit methods for nonlinear and coupled equations require iterative solution methods that have the character of an under-relaxation in each iteration. This behavior can cause significant errors (or very slow convergence) in some situations, for example, when using control volumes with large aspect ratios or when the implicitness is used in anticipation of an effect that is not actually significant. In FLOW-3D explicit numerical methods are used whenever possible because they require less computational effort, and their numerical stability requirements are equivalent to accuracy requirements. Read more in the Implicit vs. Explicit Numerical Methods article.

Implicit Numerical Methods For Convective Transport

모든 크기의 타임 스텝 크기를 계산에 사용할 수 있는 암시적인 수치 기법은 CPU 시간을 줄이기 위해 많이 사용되는 방법입니다.  불행하게도, 이 방법은 대류 현상 해석에 대해 정확하지 않습니다.  암시적인 해법은 근사 방정식에 확산 효과를 도입함으로써 시간 단계의 독립성을 획득합니다.  수치 확산을 물리적 확산 (열전도 등)에 추가해도 확산율이 변경될 뿐이므로 심각한 문제가 되지 않을 수 있습니다.  그러나 수치 확산(발산)을 대류 과정에 추가하면 모델링 대상의 물리 현상의 특성은 완전히 다르게 됩니다.  FLOW-3D는 시간의 정확한 근사치를 보장하기 위해 프로그램에 의해 time step이 자동으로 제어됩니다.

Implicit numerical techniques that allow arbitrarily large time-step sizes to be used in calculations are a popular way to reduce CPU time requirements. Unfortunately, these methods are not accurate for convective processes. Implicit methods gain their time-step independence by introducing diffusive effects into the approximating equations. The addition of numerical diffusion to physical diffusion, e.g., to heat conduction, may not cause a serious problem as it only modifies the diffusion rate. However, adding numerical diffusion to convective processes completely changes the character of the physical phenomena being modeled. In FLOW-3D time steps are automatically controlled by the program to ensure time-accurate approximations.

Relaxation and Convergence Parameters

암시적으로 근사치를 사용하는 수치법은 하나 이상의 수렴 및 완화(이완)의 매개 변수를 선택해야 합니다.  이러한 매개 변수를 신중하게 선택하지 않으면 발산하거나 수렴에 시간이 걸리는 경우가 있습니다.  FLOW-3D를 융합하는 매개 변수와 완화(이완) 매개 변수를 하나씩만 사용하여 두 매개 변수는 프로그램에 의해 동적으로 선택됩니다.  수치 해법을 제어하는 매개 변수를 사용자가 설정할 필요는 없습니다.

Numerical methods that use implicit approximations also require the selection of one or more convergence and relaxation parameters. Making poor choices for these parameters can lead to either divergences or slow convergence rates. Only one convergence and one relaxation parameter are used in FLOW-3D, and both parameters are dynamically selected by the program. Users are not required to set any parameters controlling the numerical solver.

Free-Surface Tracking

액체와 기체의 경계면 (자유 표면 등)의 모델링에 사용되는 방법은 두 가지가 있습니다.  하나는 액체, 기체 두 영역의 흐름을 계산하고 경계면을 유체 밀도의 급격한 변화로 처리하는 방법입니다.

일반적으로 밀도의 불연속은 고차 수치 근사를 사용하여 모델링됩니다.  불행하게도 이 프로세스는 소수의 격자 셀에서 경계면이 평탄화되고, 이러한 경계면에 보통 존재하는 유체흐름의 접선 속도의 급격한 변화는 고려되지 않습니다.

기체가 계산 영역에 들어가는 액체로 대체되는 경우에는 이 방법에는 기체의 출구 포트 또는 출구 싱크도 보충 할 필요가 있습니다.  또한 이러한 방법은 일반적으로 유체의 비압축성를 충족하기 위해 더 많은 노력이 필요합니다.  이것이 발생하는 기체 영역에 거의 균일 한 압력 조정이 필요하며, 이를 통해 계산 수렴 시간이 소요되기 때문입니다.

FLOW-3D는 VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) 법 이라는 독창적인 방법이 사용되고 있습니다.  이것은 진정한 3 차원 경계면 추적 방식으로, 경계면을  3 차원 인터페이스로 추적하는 체계입니다.  또한 옵션의 표면 장력을 포함한 일반적인 접선 응력 경계 조건은 경계면에 적용됩니다.  기체 영역은 모델에 포함하도록 사용자가 요청하지 않는 한 계산되지 않습니다.

There are two methods used to model liquid-gas interfaces (i.e., free surfaces). One of these is to compute flow in both the liquid and gas regions and to treat the interface as a sharp change in fluid density. Typically, the density discontinuity is modeled using higher-order numerical approximations. Unfortunately, this treatment allows the interface to smooth out over a few grid cells and does not account for a corresponding sharp change in tangential flow velocity that generally exists at such interfaces. This technique must also be supplemented with escape ports or sinks for the gas if it is to be replaced by liquid entering a computational region. Further, such methods must typically work harder to satisfy the incompressibility of the fluids. This happens because gas regions must have nearly uniform pressure adjustments which tend to slow down the solution convergence rate. A different technique, the Volume-of-Fluid (VOF) method, is used in FLOW-3D. This is a true three-dimensional interface tracking scheme in which the interface is closely maintained as a step discontinuity. Moreover, normal and tangential stress boundary conditions, including optional surface tension forces, are applied at the interface. Gas regions are not computed unless the user requests these regions to be included in the model.

[FLOW-3D 물리모델]General Moving Objects / 일반이동물체

General Moving Objects / 일반이동물체

Basics / 기초

The general moving objects (GMO) model in FLOW-3D can simulate rigid body motion, which is either userprescribed (prescribed motion) or dynamically coupled with fluid flow (coupled motion). If an object’s motion is prescribed, fluid flow is affected by the object’s motion, but the object’s motion is not affected by fluid flow. If an object has coupled motion, however, the object’s motion and fluid flow are coupled dynamically and affect each other. In both cases, a moving object can possess six degrees of freedom (DOF), or rotate about a fixed point or a fixed axis. The GMO model allows the location of the fixed point or axis to be arbitrary (it can be inside or outside the object and the computational domain), but the fixed axis must be parallel to one of the three coordinate axes of the space reference system. In one simulation, multiple moving objects with independent motion types can exist (the total number of moving and non-moving components cannot exceed 500). Any object under coupled motion can undergo simultaneous collisions with other moving and non-moving objects and wall and symmetry mesh boundaries (See Collision). The model also allows the existence of multiple (up to 100) elastic linear and torsion springs, elastic ropes and mooring lines which are attached to moving objects and apply forces or torques to them (See Elastic Springs & Ropes and Mooring Lines).

FLOW-3D에서 일반 이동물체인 GMO 모델은 강체운동을 모사(simulate)할 수 있는데, 이는 사용자가 기술하는 운동(지정운동)이거나 유체 유동과 동력학적인(결합된) 운동일 수 있다. 물체의 운동이 지정되면 유체 유동은 이 운동에 의해 영향을 받으나, 물체의 운동은 유체에 의해 영향을 받지 않는다. 그러나 물체가 결합된 운동을 하면 물체와 유체는 동역학적으로 연결되어 서로 영향을 미친다.

이 두 경우에 물체는6 자유도 운동을 할 수 있고, 고정된 점이나 축에 대해 회전할 수가 있다. GMO모델은 고정점이나 고정축의 위치를 임의로 설정할 수 있으나(이는 물체나 계산영역의 내부 또는 외부가 될 수 있다) 고정축은 공간좌표계의 좌표중의 하나에 평행하여야 한다.

어떤 모사(simulate)에서 고유의 운동형태를 갖는 다수의 운동물체가 존재할 수 있다(이동 및 고정된 물체의 전체수는500개를 초과하지 못한다). 결합운동을 하는 물체는 다른 이동/비이동 물체 그리고 벽과 대칭 경계 격자면에서 충돌할 수가 있다(충돌참조). 이 모델은 (100개까지) 다수의 탄성선형과 비틀림 스프링, 탄성로프와 이동 물체에 부착된 탄성력과 회전력을 갖는 계류선들을 표현할 수 있다(Elastic Springs & Ropes 와 Mooring Lines참조). .

In general, the motion of a rigid body can be described with six velocity components: three for translation and three for rotation. In the most general cases of coupled motion, all the available velocity components are coupled with fluid flow. However, the velocity components can also be partially prescribed and partially coupled in complex coupledmotion problems (e.g., a ship in a stream can have its pitch, roll and heave to be coupled but yaw, sway and surge prescribed). For coupled motion only, in addition to the hydraulic, gravitational, inertial and spring forces and torques which are calculated by the code, additional control forces can be prescribed by the user. The control forces can be defined either as up to five forces with their application points fixed on the object or as a net control force and torque. The net control force is applied to the GMO’s mass center, while the control torque is applied about the mass center for 6-DOF motion, and about the fixed point or fixed axis for those kinds of motions. The inertial force and torque exist only if the Non-inertial Reference Frame model is activated.

일반적으로 강체의 운동은 6개의 속도 성분으로 기술될 수 있다: 3개의 이동과3개의 회전. 가장 일반적인 결합 운동의 경우에, 모든 가능한 속도성분들은 유동과 연결되어 있다. 그러나 속도 성분들은 복잡한 결합운동 문제에서는 부분적으로 지정되고 일부는 결합될 수 있다(즉 유속내의 선박에서 pitch, roll and heave는 결합된 운동을 하고 yaw, sway and surge 는 지정될 수있다). 단 결합운동 문제에서는 코드 내에서 계산되는 수력, 중력, 관성 그리고 스프링 힘과 토크에 추가적인 조절할 수 있는 힘(control force) 들이 사용자에 의해 기술될 수 있다. 조절 힘(control force)들은 물체의 지정된 위치에 작용하는5개까지의 힘이나 또는 순수 힘과 토크로 정의 될 수 있다. 순수 조절힘은 GMO의 질량 중심에 작용하지만, 조절토크는6 자유도 운동의 질량중심에 대해 이런 운동을 하기 위한 고정축이나 점들에 대해 적용된다. 관성력과 토크는 단지 비 관성계 모델이 활성화되면 존재한다.

In FLOW-3D, a GMO is classified as a geometry component that is either porous or non-porous. As with stationary components, a GMO can be composed of a number of geometry subcomponents. Each subcomponent can be defined either by quadratic functions and primitives, or by STL data, and can be solid, hole or complement. If STL files are used, since GMO geometry is re-generated at every time step in the computation, the user should strive to minimize the number of triangle facets used to define the GMO to achieve faster execution of the solver while maintaining the necessary level of the geometry resolution. For mass properties, different subcomponents of an object can possess different mass densities.

FLOW-3D 에서 한 개의 GMO 는 다공질 또는 비 다공질의 형상요소로 간주된다. 정지된 구성요소에서와 같이 한 개의 GMO 는 다수의 형상 서브구성요소로 구성될 수 있다. 각 서브구성요소는 2차 함수와 기초 요소 또는 STL 데이터로 정의될 수 있고 고체, 공간 또는 이의 보완일 수 있다. 만약 STL 파일이 사용된다면 GMO 형상은 계산 중에 매 시간에서 재 생성되므로 사용자는 형상 정밀도에 필요한 수준을 유지하는 한편, 빠른 계산을 위해 GMO를 정의하는데 사용되는 삼각면의 수를 줄이려고 노력해야 한다. 질량물성을 위해 한 물체의 다른 서브구성요소는 다른 질량밀도를 가질 수 있다.

In order to define the motion of a GMO and interpret the computational results correctly, the user needs to understand the body-fixed reference system (body system) which is always fixed on the object and experiences the same motion. In the FLOW-3D preprocessor, the body system (x’, y’, z’) is automatically set up for each GMO. The initial directions of its coordinate axes (at t = 0) are the same as those of the space system (x, y, z). The origin of the body system is fixed at the GMO’s reference point which is a point automatically set on each moving object in accordance with the object’s motion type.

GMO 의 운동을 정의하고 계산결과를 정확히 이해하기 위해, 사용자는 항상 물체에 고정되고, 물체와 같은 운동을 하는 물체에, 고정된 기준계(물체계)를 이해할 필요가 있다. FLOW-3D 의 전처리에서 물체계(x’, y’, z’) 가 자동으로 각 GMO 에 대해 설정된다. 좌표축(t = 0에서) 의 초기방향은 공간계(x, y, z) 의 것과 같다. 물체계의 원점은 물체의 이동형상에 일치하는 각 이동체 상에 자동으로 설정된 GMO 의 기준점에 고정되어 있다.

 

The reference point is: 기준점은 다음과 같다.

  • the object’s mass center for the coupled 6-DOF motion;

결합된6자유도 운동의 질량중심

  • the fixed point for the fixed-point motion;

고정점 운동을 위한 고정점

  • a point on the fixed axis for the fixed-axis rotation;

고정축 회전을 위한 고정축 상의 점

  • a user-defined reference point for the prescribed 6-DOF motion.

기술된6자유도 운동을 위한 사용자 지정의 기준점

  • If the reference point is not given by users for the prescribed 6-DOF motion, it is set by the code at the mass center (if mass properties are given) or the geometry center (if mass properties are not given) of the object.

기준점이 기술된6자유도 운동을 위해 사용자가 지정하지 않으면 코드에 의해 질량중심 (질량물성이 주어지면) 또는 형상중심(질량물성이 안 주어지면)에 지정된다.

 

The GMO’s motion can be defined through the GUI using four steps:

GMO 운동은 4단계를 거쳐 GUI 를통하여 정의될수있다.

  1. Activate the GMO model;

GMO 모델을 활성화한다

  1. Create the GMO’s initial geometry;

GMO의 초기형상을 생성한다

  1. Specify the GMO’s motion-related parameters, and

GMO의 운동관련 변수들을 지정하고.

  1. Define the GMO’s mass properties.

GMO 질량물성을 정의한다

Without the activation of the GMO model in step 1, the object created as a GMO will be treated as a non-moving object, even if steps 2 to 4 are accomplished.

1단계의 GMO 모델 활성화가 없으면 2~4의 단계가 이루어져도 GMO 로 생성된 물체는 비 이동 물체로 간주될 것이다.

Step 1: Activate the GMO Model GMO 모델활성화

GMO 모델을 활성화하기 위해 Model Setup Physics Moving and simple deforming objects 로 가서 Activate general moving objects (GMO) model 박스를 체크한다.

The GMO model has two numerical methods to treat the interaction between fluid and moving objects: an explicit and an implicit method. If no coupled motion exists, the two methods are identical. For coupled motion, the explicit method, in general, works only for heavy GMO problem, i.e., all moving objects under coupled motion have larger mass densities than that of fluid and their added mass is relatively small. The implicit method, however, works for both heavy and light GMO problems. A light GMO problem means at least one of the moving objects under coupled motion has smaller mass densities than that of fluid or their added mass is large. The user may change the selection on the Moving and deforming objects panel or on the Numerics tab Moving object/fluid coupling.

GMO 모델은 유체와 움직이는 물체간의 상호작용을 다루기위해 두 수치해석법을 이용한다: explicit 방법과implicit 방법. 결합 운동이 없으면 두 방법은 동일하다. 결합된 운동에서는 외재적 방법은 일반적으로 무거운 GMO 문제에 사용된다, 즉 결합된 운동을 하는 모든 이동물체는 유체밀도보다 크고 이의 부가질량이 작을 경우이다. 그러나 내재적 방법은 무겁거나 가벼운 GMO 문제에 모두 사용된다. 가벼운 GMO 문제는 결합운동 시에 최소한 하나의 이동물체가 유체밀도보다 작고 이의 부가질량이 클 경우이다. 사용자는 Moving and deforming objects패널이나 Numerics tab Moving object/fluid coupling 상에서 선택을 바꿀 수 있다.

  1. Step 2: Create the GMO’s Initial Geometry GMO의 초기형상을 생성한다

 

In the Meshing & Geometry tab, create the desired geometry for the GMO components using either primitives and/or imported STL files in the same way as is done for any stationary component. The component can be either standard or porous. To set up a porous component, refer to Porous Media. Note that the Copy function cannot be used with geometry components representing GMOs.

정지상태의 구성요소 생성의 경우와 마찬가지로 Meshing & Geometry 탭에서 기초 요소와/또는 외부로부터의 STL 파일을 이용하여 GMO 구성요소의 원하는 형상을 생성한다. 구성요소는 standard이거나porous일 수 있다. 다공성요소를 설정하기 위해 Porous Media 를 참조하라. Copy 기능은 GMO를 나타내는 형상 구성요소에 사용할 수 없음에 주목한다.

Step 3: Specify the GMO’s Motion Related Parameters GMO의 운동관련변수들을 지정한다

The following section discusses how to set up parameters for prescribed and coupled 6-DOF motion, fixed-point motion and fixed-axis motion. The user can go directly to the appropriate part.

다음 섹션은 “지정되고 결합된 6자유도운동”, “고정점 운동과 고정축 운동을 위한 매개변수를 어떻게 설정하는지”에 대해 논한다. 사용자는 직접 해당부분을 참조할 수 있다.

To define the object’s velocity, go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab in the Moving object setup window. The prescribed 6-DOF motion is described as a superimposition of a translation of a reference point and a rotation about the reference point. The reference point can be anywhere inside or outside the moving object and the computational domain. The user needs to enter its initial x, y and z coordinates (at t = 0) in the provided edit boxes. By default, the reference point is determined by the preprocessor in two different ways depending on whether the object’s mass properties are given: if mass properties (either mass density or integrated mass properties) are given, then the mass center of the moving object is used as the reference point; otherwise, the object’s geometric center will be calculated and used as the reference point.

물체의 속도를 정의하기 위해 Moving object setup 의 창에 있는 Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭으로 이동한다. 지정된 6자유도 운동은 기준점의 이동과 기준점에 대한 회전의 중첩으로 기술된다. 기준점은 이동체의 내부 또는 외부 그리고 계산영역 외부일 수도 있다. 사용자는 주어진 편집박스 내에 이의 초기 x, y 와 z 좌표값(t = 0에서)을 입력할 필요가 있다. 디폴트로 기준점은 물체의 질량 물성이 주어지는가에 따라 두 가지로 전처리 과정에서 결정된다: 질량물성(질량밀도나 전체질량물성)이 주어지면 이동체의 질량중심이 기준점으로 사용되고 아니면 이동체의 형상중심이 계산되고 기준점으로 이용된다.

With the reference point provided (or left for the code to calculate), users can define the translational velocity components for the reference point in space system and the angular velocity components (in radians/time) in body system. Each velocity component can be defined either as a sinusoidal or a piecewise linear function of time by making a selection in the corresponding combo box. For a constant velocity component, choose Non-Sinusoidal and simply enter its value in the corresponding input box (the default value is 0.0). If a velocity component is Non-sinusoidal and time-dependent, click on the corresponding Tabular button to open a data table and enter values for the velocity component and time. Alternatively, the user can also import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and velocity from left to right and must have a csv extension. If the velocity component is sinusoidal in time, then enter the values for Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the input boxes.

기준점이 주어지면(또는 코드 내에서 계산이 되면) 사용자는 공간계 기준점에 대해 translational velocity components 를 그리고 물체계에서angular velocity components (radians/시간으로)를 정의할 수 있다. 각 속도 성분은 상응하는 combo box 에서 선택함으로써 사인파 또는 구간적 시간함수로써 정의될 수 있다. 일정 속도 성분에 대해서 Non-Sinusoidal 을 선택하고 단순히 상응하는 combo 박스에 값을 넣는다(디폴트 값은0이다). 속도성분이 Non-Sinusoidal 이고 시간의 함수이면 데이터 테이블을 열고 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 속도성분과 시간을 넣는다. 다른 방법으로는 사용자가 Tabular Import Values를 클릭함으로써 속도성분대 시간의 데이터파일을 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 속도를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다. 속도 성분이 시간에 따른 사인파이면 입력박스에서의 Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) 그리고 Initial Phase (in degrees) 값을 입력한다.

  • Users can set limits for the translational displacements of the object’s reference point in both negative and positive x, y and z directions in space system. The displacements are measured from the initial location of the reference point. During motion, the reference point cannot go beyond these limits but can move back to the allowed range after it reaches a limit. To set the limits for translation, go to the Motion Constraints tab and enter the maximum displacements allowed in the corresponding input boxes, using absolute values. By default, these values are infinite. Note the Limits for rotation is only for fixed-axis rotation thus cannot be set for 6-DOF motion.사용자는 공간계에서 음이나 양의 x, y 그리고 z 방향으로 물체 기준점의 이동변위를 제한할 수 있다. 변위는 기준점의 초기위치로부터 정해진다. 운동중에 기준점은 이 제한을 넘어갈 수 없지만 이 제한에 도달한 후에 허용된 범위만큼 돌아올 수 있다. 이동의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints 탭으로가서 절대값을 사용하여 상응하는 입력박스 안에 허용된 최대변위를 넣는다. the Limits for rotation 는 고정축 회전에만 해당하므로 6자유도 운동에는 지정될 수 없다.Prescribed Fixed-point Motion지정된 고정점운동In Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object, select Prescribed motion.

    Prescribed Fixed-Axis Motion

    In Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object, select Prescribed motion. Go to Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints. Under Type of Constraint, select Fixed X-Axis Rotation or Fixed Y-Axis Rotation or Fixed Z-Axis Rotation in the combo box depending on which coordinate axis the rotational axis is parallel to.

Moving object properties Edit Motion Constraints 로 가서Type of Constraint밑에서 회전축이 어떤 좌표축에 평행인가에 따라 combo box 에있는 Fixed X-Axis Rotation 또는 Fixed Y-Axis Rotation 또는 Fixed Z-Axis Rotation 를 선택한다.

    Coordinates of the rotational axis need be given in two of the three input boxes for Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate and Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate. For example, if the rotational axis is parallel to the z-axis, then the x and y coordinates for the rotational axis must be defined. Users can also set limits for the object’s rotational angle in both positive and negative directions. The rotational angle (i.e., angular displacement) is a vector and measured from the object’s initial orientation based on the right-hand rule. Its value is positive if it points in the positive direction of the coordinate axis which the rotational axis is parallel to. The object cannot rotate beyond these limits but can rotate back to the allowed angular range after it reaches a limit. To set the limits for rotation, in Motion Constraints Limits for rotation, enter the Maximum rotational angle allowed in negative and positive directions in the corresponding input boxes, using absolute values in degrees. By default, these values are infinite.

    회전축 좌표는 3개 Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate 중 2개의 입력박스에서 주어져야 한다. 예를 들면 회전축이 z 축에 평행 하다면 이 회전축의 the x 와 y 좌표가 정의 되어야 한다. 사용자는 물체의 양음 방향의 회전각도를 제한할 수 있다. 회전각 (즉, 각변위)은 벡터이며 오른손 법칙에 따른 물체의 초기 방향으로부터 측정된다. 이는 회전축에 평행한 좌표축의 양방향을 가리키면 양의 값이다. 물체는 제한 값을 지나 회전할 수 없지만 이 값에 도달한 후 허용된 각변위로 되돌아갈 수 있다. 회전의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints Limits for rotation 내에서 상응하는 입력박스에서 음이나 양의방향으로 허용된 Maximum rotational angle 을 입력한다. 이의 디폴트 값은 무한대이다.

To define the angular velocity of an object (in radians/time), go to Initial/Prescribed Velocities. The angular velocity can be defined either as a sinusoidal or a piecewise linear function of time by making a selection in the corresponding combo box. For a constant angular velocity, choose Non-Sinusoidal and simply enter its value in its input box (the default value is 0.0). If it is Non-sinusoidal in time, click on the corresponding Tabular button to open a data table and enter the values for the angular velocity and time. Alternatively, the user can also import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and angular velocity from left to right and must have a csv extension. If the angular velocity is sinusoidal in time, then enter the values for Amplitude, Frequency (in cycles/time) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the corresponding input boxes.

물체의 각속도(radians/시간으로)를 정의하기 위해 Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭으로 간다. 각속도는 상응하는 combo box 에서 사인파 또는 구간적 시간함수로써 정의될 수 있다. 일정 각속도에 대해서 Non-Sinusoidal 을 선택하고, 이에 상응하는 combo box 에 단순히 값을 넣는다(디폴트 값은0.0이다). 이것이 Non-Sinusoidal 이고 시간의 함수이면 데이터 테이블을 불러와, 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 각속도와 시간을 넣는다. 그렇지 않으면 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 를 클릭함으로써 속도 성분대 시간의 데이터 파일을 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 각속도를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다. 각속도가 시간에 따른 사인파이면 입력박스에서의 Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) 그리고 Initial Phase (in degrees) 값을 입력한다.

Users need to define the initial velocities for the object. Go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab. Enter the x, y, and z components of the initial velocity of the GMO’s mass center in X Initial Velocity, Y Initial Velocity and Z Initial Velocity, respectively. Enter the x’, y’ and z’ components of the initial angular velocity (in radians/time) in the body system in X Initial Angular Velocity, Y Initial Angular Velocity and Z Initial Angular Velocity, respectively. By default, the initial velocity components are zero.

사용자는 물체에 대한 초기속도를 정의해야 한다. Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭으로 간다. 각 X Initial Velocity, Y Initial Velocity 그리고 Z Initial Velocity 로 GMO 질량중심의 초기속도의 x, y 와 z 성분값(t = 0에서)을 입력한다. 물체 계에서의 X Initial Angular Velocity, Y Initial Angular Velocity 그리고 Z Initial Angular Velocity (radians/시간으로)로 초기 각속도의 x’, y’ 및 z’ 성분값을 입력한다.

 

For coupled 6-DOF motion, user-prescribed control force(s) and torque exerting on the object can be defined either in the space system or the body system. They are combined with the hydraulic, gravitational, inertial and spring forces and torques to determine the object’s motion. There are two different ways to define control force(s) and torque: prescribe either a total force and a total torque about the object’s mass center or multiple forces with their application points fixed on the object. By default, all the control force(s) and torque are equal to zero.

결합된6자유도운동에서 물체에 미치는 사용자 지정 조절 힘과 토크는 물체계 또는 공간계에서 정의될 수 있다. 이들은 물체의 운동을 결정하는 수력, 중력, 관성력 스프링 힘 그리고 토크이다. 이 조절 힘과 토크를 정의하는 두 가지 방법이 있다: 물체의 질량중심에 대한 전체의 힘과 토크를 지정하거나 물체에 고정된 점들에 작용하는 다수의 힘들을 지정하는 것이다. 디폴트는 모든 조절 힘과 토크가0이다.

To prescribe total force and total torque, in the Control Forces and Torques tab, choose Define Total Force and Total Torque in the combo box. Further select In Space System or In Body System depending on which reference system the control force and torque are define in. If a component of the force or the torque is a constant, it can be specified in the corresponding edit box (default is zero). If it varies with time, then click on the Tabular button to bring up a data input table and enter the values for the component and time. The time-variant force and torque are treated as piecewise-linear functions of time during simulation. Alternatively, instead of filling the data table line by line, the user can also import a data file for the force/torque component versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and the force/torque component from left to right and must have a csv extension.

If, instead, control forces and their application points need to be defined, then in the Control Forces and Torques tab choose Define Multiple Forces and Application Points in the combo box. Users can specify up to five forces. For each force, in the editor boxes, choose the force index (1 to 5) and then select Force components in Space System or Body System depending on which reference system the force is defined in. In field on the left, enter the initial coordinates (at t = 0) for the force’s application point. In the field on the right, prescribe components of the force in x, y and z directions of the body or space system. For a constant force component, enter its value in the corresponding edit box. If it varies with time, then click on the Tabular button to bring up a data input table and enter values for the force component versus time. Tabular force input is approximated with a piecewise-linear function of time. Alternatively, the user can import a data file for the force versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and from left to right and must have a csv extension.

Motion constraints can be imposed to the object to decrease the number of the degrees of freedom to less than six. This selection is made by setting part of its translational and rotational velocity components as Prescribed motion while leaving the other components to coupled motion in Motion Constraints tab Translational and Rotational Options. Note that the translational and rotational components are in the space system and the body system, respectively. Then go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab to define their values. A prescribed velocity component can be defined as either a sinusoidal or piecewise linear function of time in the combo box. For a constant velocity component, choose Non-Sinusoidal and enter its value in its input box (the default value is 0.0). If the velocity component is timedependent and non-sinusoidal, click on the Tabular button to open a data table and enter the values for the velocity component and time. Alternatively, the user can import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and the angular velocity component from left to right and must have a csv extension. It is treated as a piecewise-linear function of time in the code. If it is a sinusoidal function of time, instead, enter its Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the edit boxes.

Users can also set limits for displacements of the object’s mass center in both negative and positive x, y and z directions in the space system, measured from its initial location. The mass center cannot go beyond these limits but can move back to the allowed motion range after it reaches a limit. To specify these limits, open the Motion Constraints tab and in the Limits for translation area, enter the absolute values of maximum displacements in the desired coordinate directions. There are no Limits for rotation for an object with 6-DOF coupled motion.

사용자는 초기 조건으로부터 측정된 공간계에서의 음이나 양의 x, y 그리고 z 방향으로 물체 질량중심의 변위를 제한할 수 있다. 질량중심은 이 제한을 지나갈 수 없지만 이 제한에 도달한 후에 허용된 범위로 돌아올 수 있다. 이동의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints 탭을 열고 Limits for translation에서 원하는 좌표방향에서의 최대 절대변위 값을 넣는다. 6자유도 운동을 갖는 물체에 대한 Limits for rotation 은 없다.

Further constraints of motion can be imposed to the object to decrease its number of degrees of freedom. This is done in the Motion Constraints tab by setting part of its rotational components as prescribed motion while leaving the others as coupled motion in the combo box for Translational and rotational options. Note that the rotational components are in the body system. By default, the prescribed velocity components are equal to zero. To specify a non-zero velocity component, go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab. It can be defined as either a sinusoidal or a piecewise linear function of time by making selection in the corresponding combo box. For a constant velocity component, choose Non-Sinusoidal and simply enter its value in the input box (the default value is 0.0). If it is non-sinusoidal timedependent, click on the Tabular button to open a data table and enter the values for the velocity component and time. Alternatively, the user can import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and the angular velocity component from left to right and must have a csv extension.

As an option, instead of filling the data table line by line, the user can also import a data file for the angular velocity versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and velocity from left to right and must have a csv extension.

Control Forces and Torques 탭에서 combo box 상자 안의 Define Total Force and Total Torque 를 선택한다. 추가로 조절 토크가 정의되는 기준계에 따른 공간계 In Space System 나 물체계 In Body System 을 선택한다.  토크가 상수이면 its x, y 및 z 성분을 위한 주어진 편집상자에서 지정된다. 이것이   시간에 따라 변하는 조절 토크이면 데이터 테이블을 불러오기 위해 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 성분과 토크 성분값을 넣는다. 제어토크는 구간 내 시간의 선형함수로 간주된다. 선택으로 한 줄씩 데이터 테이블을 채우는 대신에 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 을 클릭함으로써 각속도 대 시간 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 속도를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며  csv 확장자를 가져야 한다

 

Coupled Fixed-Axis Motion  결합된 고정축운동

In Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object, select Coupled motion. Go to Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints. Under Type of Constraint, select Fixed X-Axis Rotation or Fixed Y-Axis Rotation or Fixed Z-Axis Rotation in the combo box depending on which coordinate axis the rotational axis is parallel to.

Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object 에서 Coupled motion 을 선택한다. Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints 로 가서 Type of Constraint 밑에서 회전축이 어느 좌표축과 평행한지에 따라 combo 박스에있는 Fixed X-Axis Rotation또는Fixed Y-Axis Rotation 또는 Fixed Z-Axis Rotation 를 선택한다.

 

Coordinates of the rotational axis need be given in two of the three input boxes for Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate and Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate. For example, if the rotational axis is parallel to the z-axis, then the x and y coordinates for the rotational axis must be defined. Users can also set limits for the object’s rotational angle in both positive and negative directions. The rotational angle (i.e., angular displacement) is a vector and measured from the object’s initial orientation based on the right-hand rule. Its value is positive if it points to the positive direction of the coordinate axis which the rotational axis is parallel to. The object cannot rotate beyond these limits but can rotate back to the allowed angular range after it reaches a limit. To set the limits for rotation, in Motion Constraints Limits for rotation, enter the maximum rotational allowed in negative and positive directions in the corresponding input boxes, using absolute values in degrees. By default, these values are infinite.

회전축좌표는 3개 Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate 중 2개의 입력박스에서 주어져야 한다. 예를들면 회전축이 z 축에 평행하다면 이 회전축의 the x 와 y 좌표가 정의되어야 한다. 사용자는 물체의 양과 음 방향의 회전각도를 제한할 수 있다. 회전각 (즉, 각변위)은 벡터이며 오른손 법칙에 따라 물체의 초기 방향으로 부터 측정된다. 이것이 회전축에 평행한 좌표축의 양방향을 가리키면 양의 값이다. 물체는 제한 값을 지나 회전할 수 없지만 이 값에 도달한 후 허용된 각 변위로 되돌아갈 수 있다. 회전의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints Limits for rotation 내에서 상응하는 입력박스에서 음이나 양의방향으로 허용된 Maximum rotational angle 을 입력한다. 이의 디폴트 값은 무한대이다.

 

A definition of the initial angular velocity for the object is required. In the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab, enter the initial angular velocity (in radians per time) in x, y or z direction in the corresponding input box in the Angular velocity components area, depending on the orientation of the rotational axis. The default value is zero.

User-prescribed total torque exerting on the object can be defined. They are combined with the hydraulic, gravitational, inertial and spring torques to determine the object’s rotation. In the Control Forces and Torques tab, choose Define Total Force and Total Torque in the combo box. If the torque is constant, it can be simply set in the provided edit box for x, y or z component of the torque, depending on direction of the coordinate axis which the rotational axis is parallel to. For a time-dependent control torque, click the corresponding Tabular button to bring up a data table and then enter the values of time and the torque. The control torque is treated as a piecewise-linear function of time in computation. As an option, instead of filling the data table line by line, the user can also import a data file for the torque versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and torque from left to right and must have a csv extension. The torque about the fixed axis is the same in the space and body systems, thus the choice of In space system or In body system options makes no difference to the computation. User-prescribed total control force and multiple forces are not allowed for the fixed-axis motion.

물체의 초기 각속도 정의가 필요하다. Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭에서 회전축의 방향에 따라 the Angular velocity components 면에서 x, y 및 z 방향으로 초기 각속도(시간당radians으로)를 넣는다. 디폴트는0이다. 사용자에 의해 지정된 물체에 작용하는 전체 토크가 정의될 수 있다, 이들은 물체의 회전을 결정하기 위해 수력, 중력, 관성력과 스프링에 의한 토크와 결합되어 있다. Control Forces and Torques 탭 안의 combo box 에서 Define Total Force and Total Torque 을 선택한다.  토크가 상수이면 회전축이 평행한 좌표축의 방향에 따라, 토크의 x, y 또는 z 성분을 위한 주어진 편집박스에서 단순히 지정된다. 따라 변하면 데이터테이블을 불러오기 위해 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 시간과 토크를 넣는다. 제어토크는 계산시 구간 내 시간의 함수로 간주된다. 선택으로 한 줄씩 데이터 테이블을 채우는 대신에 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 를 클릭함으로써 토크대 시간의 파일을 읽어 들일 수 가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 토크를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다. 고정축에 대한 토크는 공간과 시간계에서 같으므로 In space system 이나 In body system 의 선택은 계산에 차이가 없다. 사용자가 지정하는 전체 제어 힘과 다중의 힘은 고정축 운동에서는 허용되지 않는다.

Step 4: Specify the GMO’s Mass Properties GMO 질량물성을 정의한다

Definition of the mass properties is required for any moving object with coupled motion and is optional for objects with prescribed motion. If the mass properties are provided for a prescribed-motion object, the solver will calculate and output the residual control force and torque, which complement the gravitational, hydraulic, spring, inertial and user-prescribed control forces and torques to maintain the prescribed motion. To specify the mass properties, click on Mass Properties to open the dialog window. Two options are available for the mass properties definition: provide mass density or the integrated mass properties including the total mass, mass center and the moment of inertia tensor.

질량물성의 정의가 결합운동을 하는 이동체에 대해 필요하지만 지정운동을 하는 이동체에는 선택적이다. 지정운동체에 대해 질량 물성이 주어지면 solver 는 지정 운동을 유지하기 위해 중력, 수력, 관성력, 스프링 힘과 사용자 지정의 힘과 토크를 보완하는 잔여 조절 힘과 토크를 계산하고 출력할 것이다. 질량물성을 지정하기 위한 대화창을 열기 위해 Mass Properties를 클릭한다. 이를 위해 두 가지 선택이 있다: 질량밀도 또는 전체질량, 질량중심과 관성모멘트텐서를 포함하는 통합 질량 물성을 제공한다.

The option to provide mass density is convenient if the object has a uniform density or all its subcomponents have uniform densities. In this case, the preprocessor will calculate the integrated mass properties for the object. In the Mass Properties tab, select Define Density in the combo box and enter the density value in the Mass Density input box. By default, each subcomponent of the object takes this value as its own mass density. If a subcomponent has a different density, define it under that subcomponent in the geometry tree, Geometry Component Subcomponents Subcomponent (the desired component) Mass Density.

물체나 이 물체의 소 구성요소가 균일한 밀도를 가지면 질량밀도를 주는 선택이 편하다. 이 경우 전처리과정이 이에 대한 모든 통합 질량물성을 계산할 것이다. Mass Properties 탭에서 combo 박스에 있는 Define Density 를 선택하고 Mass Density 입력박스에서 밀도 값을 넣는다. 디폴트로 물체의 소 구성 요소의 밀도는 물체의 밀도와 같다. 만약에 소 구성요소가 다른 밀도를 가지면 이를 형상체계에 있는 Geometry Component Subcomponents Subcomponent (the desired component) Mass Density 소구성요소에서 정의한다.

 

The option to provide integrated mass properties is useful if the object’s mass, mass center and moment of inertia tensor are known parameters regardless of whether the object’s density is uniform or not. In the Mass Properties tab, choose Define Integrated Mass Properties in the combo box and enter the following parameters in the input boxes depending on the type of motion: Total mass, initial mass center location (at t = 0) and moment of inertia tensor about mass center for 6-DOF and fixed-point motion types;

통합 질량 물성의 사용은 물체의 밀도가 균일한지와 무관하게 물체의 질량, 질량중심, 관성모멘트 텐서 등이 알려진 변수일 경우에 유용하다. Mass Properties 탭에서 combo 박스에있는 Define Integrated Mass Properties 을 선택하고 운동형태에 따라 입력상자 안에 다음 변수들을 넣는다:

 

  • Total mass, initial mass center location (at t = 0) and moment of inertia about fixed axis for fixed-axis motion type.

전체 질량, 초기 질량중심 위치(t=0에서), 그리고 6자유도 및 고정점 운동 형태를 위한 질량중심에 관한 관성모멘트텐서

Output출력

For each GMO component, the solver outputs time variations of several solution variables that characterize the object’s motion. These variables can be accessed during post-processing in the General history data catalog and can be viewed either graphically or in a text format. For both prescribed and coupled types of motion with the mass properties provided, the user can find the following variables:

각 GMO 요소에 대해solver는 물체의 운동 특성을 보여주는 대여섯 개의 해석변수의 시간에 대한 변화를 출력한다. 이 변수들은 General history 데이터카탈로그에서 후처리중에 텍스트나 도식으로 볼 수 있다. 주어진 질량을 갖는 지정과 결합운동에 대해 사용자는 다음 변수들을 이용할 수가 있다.

  1. Mass center coordinates in space system공간계 내의 질량중심좌표
  2. Mass center velocity in space system공간계 내의 질량중심 속도
  3. Angular velocity in body system물체계 내의 각속도
  4. Hydraulic force in space system공간계 내의 수리력
  5. Hydraulic torque in body system물체계 내의 수리토크
  6. Combined kinetic energy of translation and rotation 이동과 회전의 결합운동에너지

There will be no output for items 1, 2 and 6 for any prescribed-motion GMO if the mass properties are not provided. Additional output of history data include:

As an option, the history data for a GMO with 6-DOF motion can also include the buoyancy center and the metacentric heights for rotations about x and y axes of the space system, which is useful for stability analysis of a floating object. Go to Geometry Component (the desired moving object) Output Buoyancy Center and Metacentric Height, and select Yes. The buoyancy center is defined as the mass center of the fluid displaced by the object. The metacentric height (GM) is the distance from the gravitational center (point G) to the metacenter (point M). It is positive (negative) if point G is below (above) M.

선택사항으로 GMO 6자유도의 이력데이터는 부력중심과 부력물체의 안정성 해석에 유용한 공간계의 x와 y 축에 대한 회전을 위한 metacentric 높이를 포함한다. Geometry Component (the desired moving object) Output Buoyancy Center and Metacentric Height 로가서 Yes 를 선택한다. 부력 중심은 물체에 의해 배수된 부분을 차지하는 유체의 질량중심으로 정의된다. The metacentric height (GM) 은 중력중심(점 G) 에서 metacenter (점M)까지이다. 점 G가 M보다 밑(위)이면 양(음)이다.

 

GMO components can participate in heat transfer just like any stationary solid component. When defining specific heat of a GMO component, Component Properties Solid Properties Density*Specific Heat must be given.

GMO 요소는 여느 정지 고체 요소와 같이 열전달을 포함 할 수 있다. GMO 요소의 비열을 정의할 때 Component Properties Solid Properties Density*Specific Heat 가 주어져야 한다.

 

Two options are available when defining heat sources for a GMO component: use the specific heat flux, or the total power. When the total power is used, the heat fluxes along the open surface of the moving object are adjusted at every time step to maintain a constant total power. If the surface area varies significantly with time, so will the heat fluxes. When the specific heat is used instead, then the fluxes will be constant, but the total power may vary as the surface area changes during the object’s motion. To define heat source for a GMO component, go to Component Properties Solid Properties Heat Source type Total amount or Specific amount.

GMO 요소의 열 소스를 정의할 때 두 가지 선택이 있다: 비열유속 또는 전체 일률(power)를 사용하는 것이다. 전체 일률이 사용되면 이동체의 개표면을 통한 열 유속은 일정 전체 일률을 유지하기 위해 매 시간 단계 마다 조정된다. 표면적이 시간에 따라 상당히 변하면 열유속도 그러할 것이다. 대신에 비열이 사용되면 열 유속은 일정할 것이고 전체일률은 표면적이 이동체의 운동에 따라 변할 때 변할 수도 있다. GMO 요소의 열소스를 정의하기 위해 to Component Properties Solid Properties Heat Source type Total amount or Specific amount 로 간다.

 

Mass sources/sinks can also be defined on the open surfaces of a GMO component. Details can be found in Mass

Sources. 질량소스나 싱크 또한 GMO 요소의 개표면 상에 정의될 수 있다. 자세한 것은 in Mass Sources 에서 볼 수 있다.

Although the GMO model can be used with most physical models and numerical options, limitations exist. To use the model properly, it is noted that

GMO 모델은 대부분의 다른 물리적 모델이나 수치해석 선택과 같이 사용될 수 있지만 제한이 따른다. 모델을 제대로 사용하기 위해 다음 사항들에 유의한다.

  • For coupled motion, the explicit and implicit GMO methods perform differently. The implicit GMO method works for both heavy and light moving objects. The explicit GMO method, however, only works for heavy object problems (i.e., the density of moving object is higher than the fluid density).

결합운동에 대해 내재적과 외재적 GMO 방법은 다르게 작동한다. 내재적 GMO 방법은 무겁거나 가벼운 이동물체에 이용될 수 있지만 외재적 GMO 방법은 무거운 물체의 이동에만 이용한다(즉, 이동물체의 밀도가 유체의 밀도보다 크다).

  • When the explicit GMO method is used, solution for fully coupled moving objects may become unstable if the added mass of the fluid surrounding the object exceeds the object’s mass.

외재적 GMO 방법이 사용될 때 물체 주위 유체의 부가질량이 물체의 질량보다 크면 완전결합 이동물체의 해석은 불안정하게 된다.

  • If there are no GMO components with coupled motion, then the implicit and explicit methods are identical and the choice of one makes no difference to the computational results.

결합운동을 하는 GMO 요소가 없으면 내재적과 외재적 방법은 같고 어느 하나를 사용해도 계산결과에 차이가 없다.

  • The implicit method does not necessarily take more CPU time than the explicit method, even though the former required more computational work, because it improves numerical stability and convergence, and allows for larger time step. It is thus recommended for all GMO problems.

내재적 방법은 수치(해석) 안정성과 수렴이 개선되고 더 큰 시간 단계를 가능하게 해주기 때문에 더 많은 계산을 필요로 하지만 외재적 방법보다 항상 더 많이 CPU시간을 필요로 하지는 않는다. 따라서 모든 문제에 권장된다.

  • It is recommended that the limited compressibility be specified in the fluid properties to improve numerical stability by reducing pressure fluctuations in the fluid.

유체내의 압력 변동을 줄임으로써 수치해석안정성을 증가시키기 위해 제한된 압축성이 유체 물성에서 지정되도록 권장된다.

  • In the simulation result, fluctuations of hydraulic force may exist due to numerical reasons. To reduce these fluctuations, the user can set No f-packing for free-surface problems in Numerics Volume of fluid advection Advanced options and set FAVOR tolerance to 0.0001 in Numerics Time-step controls Advanced Options Stability enhancement. It is noted that an unnecessarily small FAVORTM tolerance factor can cause small time steps and slow down the computation.

모사(simulate)결과에서 수리력의 변동이 수치적인 이유로 존재할 수 있다. 이 변동을 줄이기 위해 사용자는 Numerics Volume of fluid advection Advanced options 에서 자유표면 문제에 대해 No f-packing 을 지정하고 FAVOR tolerance Numerics Time-step controls Advanced Options Stability enhancement 에서 0.0001로 지정할 수 있다. 불필요하게 작은 FAVORTM tolerance 인자는 작은시간 단계를 발생시키고 계산을 더디게 할 수 있다.

  • In order to calculate the fluid force on a moving object accurately, the computational mesh needs to be reasonably fine in every part of the domain where the moving object is expected to be in contact with fluid.

이동물체에 대한 유체의 힘을 정확히 계산하기 위해 이동체가 유체와 접촉할 것으로 예상되는 영역내의 모든 부분에서 적절히 미세한 계산격자를 사용해야한다.

  • An object can move completely outside the computational domain during a computation. When this happens, the hydraulic forces and torques vanish, but the object still moves under actions of gravitational, spring, inertial and control forces and torques. For example, an object experiences free fall outside the domain under the gravitational force in the absence of all other forces and torques.

물체는 계산 동안에 완전히 계산영역 외부로 이동할 수 있다. 이럴 경우 수리력과 토크는 사라지지만 물체는 중력, 스프링힘, 관성력 및 조절 힘과 토크의 영향으로 움직인다. 예를 들면 물체는 모든 다른 힘과 토크가 없는 경우에 중력장 안에 있는 영역외부에서 자유낙하를 할 것이다.

  • If mass density is given, then the moving object must initially be placed completely within the computational domain and the mesh around it should be reasonably fine so that its integrated mass properties (the total mass, mass center and moment of inertia tensor) can be calculated accurately by the code

질량밀도가 주어지면 초기에 물체가 완전히 계산영역 내에 위치하고 있어야 하고 이 주변의 격자는 적절히 미세하게 하여 이의 통합 질량물성(전체질량, 질량중심 그리고 관성모멘트텐서)이 이 코드에 의해 정확히 계산될 수 있어야 한다.

  • If a moving object is composed of multiple subcomponents, they should have overlap in places of contact so that no unphysical gaps are created during motion when the original geometry is converted to area and volume fractions. If different subcomponents are given with different mass densities, this overlap should be small to avoid big errors in mass property calculation.

이동체가 다수의 소 구성요소로 이루어져 있다면 원래 형상이 면적과 체적율로 전환될 때 이들은 접촉부에 중첩이 있어야만 이동 시에 실제로 존재하지 않은 간격이 발생 안 한다. 다른 소구성요소가 다른 질량밀도로 주어지면 이 간격은 질량물성 계산시 큰 에러를 줄이기 위해 작아야 한다.

  • A moving object cannot be of a phantom component type like lost foam or a deforming object.

이동체는 lost foam 이나 변형물체 같은 phantom 구성요소가 될 수 없다.

  • The GMO model works with the electric field model the same way as the stationary objects, but no additional forces associated with electrical field are computed for moving objects.

GMO 모델은 정지 물체와 같은 전장모델과 이용할 수 있으나, 전장 관련 추가적 힘은 계산되지 않는다.

  • If a GMO is porous, light in density and high in porous media drag coefficients, then the simulation may experience convergence difficulties.

GMO가 밀도가 가볍고 다공매질 저항계수가 큰 다공질이면 모사(simulate)에 수렴의 어려움이 있을 수 있다.

  • A Courant-type stability criterion is used to calculate the maximum allowed time-step size for GMO components. The stability limit ensures that the object does not move more than one computational cell in a single time step for accuracy and stability of the solution. Thus the time step is also limited by the speed of the moving objects during computation.

GMO 구성요소에 대해 Courant 형의 안정성 기준이 최대허용 시간 단계 크기를 계산하도록 이용된다. 안정성 제한은 해석의 정확성과 안정성을 위해 물체가 하나의 시간 단계에 하나 이상의 계산 셀을 지나가지 않도록 보장하는 것이다. 그러므로 시간 단계는 계산시 또한 이동체의 속도에 의해 제한된다.

Note:

  • Time-Saving Tip: For prescribed motion, users can preview the object motion in a so-called “dry run” prior to the full flow simulation. To do so, simply remove all fluid from the computational domain to allow for faster execution. Upon the completion of the simulation the motion of the GMO objects can be previewed by post-processing the results. 시간절약팁: 지정운동에서 사용자는 실제 전체 유동 계산 전에 소위 “dry run” 이라는 형태로 GMO 물체의 운동을 미리 볼 수 있다. 이러기 위해 빠른 계산을 하기 위해 계산영역 내로부터 모든 유체를 단순히 제거한다. 모사(simulate)가 끝나면 운동은 결과를 후처리함으로써 미리 볼 수 있다.
  • The residual forces (and torques) are computed for the directions in which the motion of the object is prescribed/constrained. They are defined as the difference between the total force on an object (computed from the prescribed mass*acceleration) and the computed forces on the object from pressure, shear, gravity, specified control forces, etc. As such, they represent the force required to move the object as prescribed.

잔류력(그리고 토크)은 물체의 이동이 지정되거나 제약되는 방향으로 계산된다. 이들은 물체에 작용하는 전체 힘(지정 질량*가속도로부터 구해지는)과 압력, 전단력, 중력, 지정된 조절력 등으로부터 물체에 가해지는 계산된 힘과의 차이로 정의된다.

Collision충돌

The GMO model allows users to have multiple moving objects in one problem, and each of them can possess independent type of coupled or prescribed motion. At any moment of time, each object under coupled motion can collide with any other moving objects (of a coupled- or prescribed-motion type), non-moving objects as well as wall- and symmetry-type mesh boundaries. Without the collision model, objects may penetrate and overlap each other.

GMO 모델에서 사용자는 한 문제에서 다수의 이동체를 지정할 수 있고 각 이동체는 결합 또는 지정된 별도 운동을 할 수가 있다. 어느 순간에서 결합 운동을 하는 각 물체는 벽 또는 대칭형 격자 경계뿐만 아니라 다른 이동체들(결합운동 이나 지정운동을 하는), 그리고 정지하고 있는 물체와 충돌할 수 있다.  충돌모델 없으면 물체는 각기 침투하거나 중첩될 수가 있다.

The GMO collision model is activated by selecting Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Activate collision model. It requires the activation of the GMO model first, done in the same panel. For a GMO problem with only prescribed-motion objects, it is noted that the collision model has no effect on the computation: interpenetration of the objects can still happen.

GMO 충돌모델은 Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Activate collision model 를 선택함으로써 활성화된다. 먼저 같은 패널에서 GMO 모델을 활성화한다. 단지 지정된 운동을 하는 GMO 물체 문제에 대해 충돌모델은 계산에 영향을 안 미친다는 것을 주목한다: 그래도 물체의 침투는 가능하다.

The model allows each individual collision to be fully elastic, completely plastic, or partially elastic, depending on the value of Stronge’s energetic restitution coefficient, which is an input parameter. In general, a collision experiences two phases: compression and restitution, which are associated with loss and recovery of kinetic energy. The Stronge’s restitution coefficient is a measure of kinetic energy recovery in the restitution phase. It depends on the material, surface geometry and impact velocity of the colliding objects. The range of its values is from zero to one. The value of one corresponds to a fully elastic collision, i.e., all kinetic energy lost in the compression is recovered in the restitution (if the collision is frictionless). Conversely, a zero restitution coefficient means a fully plastic collision, that is, there is no restitution phase after compression thus recovery of the kinetic energy cannot occur. A rough estimate of the restitution coefficient can be conducted through a simple experiment. Drop a sphere from height h0 onto a level anvil made of the same material and measure the rebound height h. The restitution coefficient can be obtained as h/h0. In this model, the restitution coefficient is an object-specific constant. A global value of the restitution coefficient that applies to all moving and non-moving objects is set in Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Coefficient of restitution.

입력 변수인 Stronge 의 에너지 반발계수의 값에 따라 모델은 물체의 완전탄성, 완전소성 또는 탄성의 각기 충돌을 다룰 수 있다. 일반적으로 충돌은 두 단계로 나뉜다: 압축과 반발이며 이들은 운동에너지의 손실및 회복과 연관되어 있다. Stronge 의 반발계수는 반발단계에서의 에너지회복의 척도이다. 이는 물질, 표면형상 그리고 충돌하는 물체의 충격속도에 의존한다.

이값은 0과1사이이다. 1은 완전탄성충돌이며 압축에서 손실된 모든 운동에너지가 반발에서 회복된다(충돌에마찰이없다면). 역으로, 0의 반발계수는 완전소성충돌로 즉 압축 후에 반발이 없으며 운동에너지의 회복은 일어나지 않는다. 반발계수의 개략 추정치는 단순한 실험을 통해 얻어질 수 있다.

높이 h0에서 구를 같은 재질로 만들어진 anvil (모루?)위로 떨어뜨려 반발높이 h 를 측정한다. 반발계수는 h/h0로얻어진다. 이모델에서 반발계수는 물질에 특정한 상수이다. 모든 이동과 비 이동물체에 적용되는 반발계수의 포괄적인 값은 Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Coefficient of restitution 에서 지정된다.

 

Friction can be included at the contact point of each pair of colliding bodies by defining the Coulomb’s friction coefficient. A global value of the friction coefficient that applies to all collisions is set in Physics General moving objects Coefficient of friction. Friction forces apply when the friction coefficient is positive; a collision is frictionless for the zero value of the friction coefficient, which is the default. The existence of friction in a collision always causes a loss of kinetic energy.

마찰은 Coulomb 마찰계수를 정의함으로써 충돌하는 각 물체의 접촉 점에 작용한다. 모든 충돌에 적용되는 마찰계수의 포괄적 값은 Physics General moving objects Coefficient of friction 에서 설정된다. 마찰력은 마찰계수가 양일 경우 작용한다; 충돌시 마찰계수가0일 경우 마찰력이 없고, 이는 디폴트이다. 충돌 시 마찰력의 존재는 항상 운동에너지의 손실을 뜻한다.

 

The global values of the restitution and friction coefficients are also used in the collisions at the wall-type mesh boundaries, while collisions of the moving objects with the symmetry mesh boundaries are always fully elastic and frictionless.

포괄적 마찰 및 반발계수는 또한 벽 형태의 경계에서 충돌이 발생할 경우에도 사용될 수 있으나 이동체의 대칭격자 경계와의 충돌은 항상 완전탄성이고 마찰이 없다.

 

The object-specific values for the restitution and friction coefficients are defined in the tab Model Setup Meshing & Geometry. In the geometry tree on the left, click on Geometry Component (the desired component) Component Properties Collision Properties and then enter their values in the corresponding data boxes. If an impact occurs between two objects with different values of restitution coefficients, the smaller value is used in that collision calculation. The same is true for the friction coefficient.

물체에 특정한 반발 및 마찰계수는 탭 Model Setup Meshing & Geometry 에서 정의된다. 좌측의 형상체계에서 on Geometry Component (the desired component) Component Properties Collision Properties 를 클릭하고 상응하는 데이터박스에 그 값들을 입력한다. 다른 반발계수를 갖는 두 물체 사이에 충격이 발생하면 그 충돌 계산에 작은 마찰계수 값이 이용된다. 이는 마찰의 경우에도 마찬가지이다.

Continuous contact, including sliding, rolling and resting of an object on top of another object, is simulated through a series of small-amplitude collisions, called micro-collisions. Micro-collisions are calculated in the same way as the ordinary collisions thus no additional parameters are needed. The amplitude of the micro-collisions is usually small and negligible. In case the collsion strength is obvious in continuous contact, using smaller time step may reduce the collision amplitude.

미끄러짐, 회전, 및 타물체상에 정지하고 있는 물체를 포함하는 지속적인 접촉은 미세충돌이라고 불리는 일련의 소 진폭 충돌에 의해 모사(simulate)된다. 미세 충돌은 추가적인 매개변수 필요 없이 보통충돌과 같은 방식으로 계산된다. 충돌강도가 지속적 접촉에서 현저한 경우 더 작은 시간간격을 시용하는 것이 충돌 진촉을 감소시킬지도 모른다.

 

If the collision model is activated but the user needs two specific objects to have no collision throughout the computation, he can open the text editor (File Edit Simulation) and set ICLIDOB(m,n) = 0 in namelist OBS, where m and n are the corresponding component indexes. An example of such a case is when an object (component index m) rotates about a pivot – another object (component index n). If the former has a fixed-axis motion type, then calculating the collisions with the pivot is not necessary. Moreover, ignoring these collisions makes the computation more accurate and more efficient. If no collisions between a GMO component m with all other objects and mesh boundaries are desired, then set ICLIDOB(m,m) to be zero. By default, ICLIDOB(m,n) = 1 and ICLIDOB(m,m) = 1, which means collision is allowed.

충돌모델이 활성화되고 시용자가 모사(simulate)동안에 충돌하지 않는 두 특정 물체를 필요로 하면 텍스트편집(File Edit Simulation) 을 열어 namelist OBS 에서 ICLIDOB(m,n) = 0 를 지정하는데, 여기서 m n 은 상응하는 구성 요소 색인이다.

이런 예는 한 물체(component index m)가 경첩축인 다른 물체(component index n)에대해 회전할 경우이다. 전자가 고정축에 대한 운동형태이면 경첩 축과의 충돌은 계산할 필요가 없다. 더구나
