11 Eindhoven Centre for Computational Engineering 11 GLASS MORPHOLOGY Glass products, like container glass, is often produced using pressing. The hot glass is pressed into a mould, and partially cooled. The material is very viscous and the flow quite complicated to simulate numerically, since the geometry is changing and there are more time scales involved parison (preform) plunjer mould

16 Eindhoven Centre for Computational Engineering 16 2-D VORTICES If depth is small compared to the other length scales, turbulence is self organising, not chaotic. A method to simulate the evolution of vortices is so-called contour dynamics. The vortex patch is discretised as a sum of ever smaller patches with constant vorticity which are geometrically contained in the previous patch From above distribution vorticity

18 Eindhoven Centre for Computational Engineering 18 ELECTRO-CHEMICAL DRILLING The blades of gasturbines are cooled by injecting relatively cool air through holes (turbulators). These holes are drilled using electrolysis. The drill is essentially the cathode which is moved down in the hole of the material (the anode), filled with an electrolyte. The problem consists of solving the field equations and the control of the electrolysis super alloy electrolyte cathode insulation Burnt gas

22 Eindhoven Centre for Computational Engineering 22 LAMINAR FLAMES In household burners it is important to control the stability and the NO.In order to understand these (laminar) flames, numerical simulation is necessary. The equations involved are conservation of mass, momentum, energy and species. Discretisations are done by special conservative finite volume methods x 2-D flame (temperature) grid

24 Eindhoven Centre for Computational Engineering 24 LOCAL DEFECT CORRECTION Often numerical simulations require local grid refinement. This results in “unstructured grids”. In order to be able to still use (the simpler!) uniform grids the residual of the course grid on the fine grid is computed, from which an update on the composite grid is formed. This results in an iterative process, called LDC. For flow problems we are particularly interested in finite volume methods, which are conserving fluxes
