Robust High Fidelity Large Eddy Simulation Tool for Gas Turbine Combustors, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Robust High Fidelity Large Eddy Simulation Tool for Gas Turbine Combustors, Phase I
The objective is to develop and demonstrate the use of Large Eddy Simulation (LES) for computations of gas turbine combustor flow and transport processes, using the unsteady Navier-Stokes equations on Cartesian grids with local mesh refinement and multigrid acceleration. The basic software for the coupled multigrid algorithm will be developed and demonstrated on simple flows. A Cartesian grid generator, capable of converting complex geometry into an unstructured Cartesian mesh, will be developed. These LES and numerical methods will then be applied to representative gas turbine combustor flows. More »
