What will you do in this project?

In this project, you will work on a Centrifugal pump and run the simulation. You will do the following in this project,

  • Surface cleanup and setting up the case
  • Run the case in parallel using CYGWIN 
  • Line plotting and visualizing the results in PARAVIEW.
  • Plotting Performance curve

  • Understanding how to provide rotating wall as boundary conditions
  • Learning different techniques to optimize the cell count
  • Running the simulation on multiple cores in command line window (CYGWIN)
  • Making use of MS - EXCEL to create meaningful plots

Project Highlights

The project is an advanced level project
  • This project is great for undergraduate students (3rd & 4th year), M.Tech or MS students.
  • If you are a working professional, this project will be helpful to learn CFD for Turbo-machinery applications.
Pre-requisites
  • Must be comfortable with CONVERGE.
  • Need basic background in CFD and Turbo-machinery.
  • Need a basic knowledge on how to use command line window.
  • Need a basic knowledge of MS Excel.
Work with Multiple Tools
  • Work on Converge CFD software to setup the case.
  • Use command line window (CYGWIN) to run simulations.
  • Post process the results using PARAVIEW.
  • Use of MS - WORD or GOOGLE DOC to create a report.
  • Use MS - EXCEL to create meaningful plots.

Centrifugal Pump Simulation

In this project, you will be cleaning up the geometry and setting up the case in Converge Studio by providing appropriate boundary conditions.You will get exposed to very strong features of fixed embedding, volume refinement, boundary layer generation which are really important as it gives user, a very good control on the cell count and cell count can easily be optimized using these features.Finally, you will be running the simulation in parallel to analyze the results and you will be much more interested in capturing the flow physics correctly i.e flow near the tip of the vanes of the impeller, flow separation in the outlet runner etc. You will be making use MS - EXCEL to create meaningful plots like Mass flow rate Vs Total Pressure ratio and mass flow rate Vs Efficiency. Also, you will be doing few pen and paper calculations to calculate the Pump efficiency, Hydraulic power and Shaft power.

  • Surface cleanup and setting up the case.
  • Understanding the concept of Cell Pairing
  • Capturing the flow physics correctly near the vane's tips, outlet runner etc
  • Understanding performance curve and the concept of BEP
