Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulations of Hydraulic Energy Absorber
(Virginia Tech, 1999-07-21)
Hydraulic energy absorbers may be described as high-loss centrifugal turbomachines arranged to operate as stalled torque converters. The device absorbs the kinetic energy of a vehicle in motion and dissipates the energy ...
A computational study of the 3D flow and performance of a vaned radial diffuser
(Virginia Tech, 1996-08-14)
<p>A computational study was performed on a vaned radial diffuser using the MEFP (The Moore Elliptic Flow Program) flow code. The vaned diffuser studied by Dalbert et al. was chosen as a test case for this thesis. The ...
Investigation of suction recirculation in rocket pump inducers
(Virginia Tech, 1996)
Computational study of hub corner stall in an axial compressor rotor
(Virginia Tech, 1995-08-15)
<p>The Deverson rotor, a single stage axial compressor designed to simulate a multistage axial compressor, was studied computationally using a 3-D Navier-Stokes solver, the Moore Elliptic Flow Program. A one equation, q-L, ...
