Flow control of bluff bodies using Genetic Algorithms: rotary oscillation of circular cylinder by Venkata Kaali Rupesh Telaprolu Y3101043 Thesis Supervisors: Prof. Tapan K Sengupta Prof. Kalyanmoy Deb Department of Aerospace Engineering Department of Mechanical Engineering Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur India
Necessity for flow control Structural vibrations Acoustic noise or resonance Increased unsteadiness Pressure fluctuation Enhanced heat and mass transfer
Earlier methodologies of flow control Simple geometric configurations: Splitter plate Use of second cylinder Inhomogeneous inlet flow Oscillatory inlet flow Localized surface excitation by suction and blowing Vibrating cylinder
Why rotary oscillation ? Can be employed for bodies with non-circular cross-section. Promotes drag-crisis at significantly lower Reynolds numbers as compared to that triggered by surface roughening.
Problem definition The computational simulations for two-dimensional flow past a circular cylinder that is executing rotary oscillation for a range of Reynolds numbers, peak rotation rates and frequency of oscillation, are performed and studied. Flow control by rotary oscillation for a circular cylinder is governed by three major parameters. Reynolds number, Maximum rotation rate (Ω 1 ) and Forcing frequency (S f ) where, is the translational speed of the cylinder d is the diameter of the cylinder ν is the kinematic viscosity A max is the dimensional physical peak rotation rate f is the dimensional forcing frequency
Problem definition (contd) All equations have been solved in non-dimensional form with d as the length and as the velocity scales. A time scale is defined from these two and the pressure is non-dimensionalized by. For the dynamic problem, a novel genetic algorithm based optimization technique has been used, where solutions of Navier-Stokes equations are obtained using small time-horizons at every step of the optimization process, called a GA generation. The objective function is evaluated, followed by GA determined improvement of decision variables. where, T H is the time-horizon for one GA generation.
Literature survey S. Taneda (1978) Flow visualization results for 30 ≤ Re ≤ 300 have been reported. For Re = 40 and 11.5 π < S f < 27π, vortex shedding was completely eliminated. A. Okajima et al (1981) Forces acting on a cylinder, in the range 40 ≤ Re ≤ 160 and 3050 ≤ Re ≤ 6100, were measure for 0.2 ≤ Ω 1 ≤ 1.0 and 0.025 π ≤ S f ≤ 0.15 π. P. T. Tokumaru and P. E. Dimotakis (1991) Carried our experimental studies for Re = 15000, calculated drag based on wake survey. Reported drag reduction by more than 80% for Re = 15000. J. R. Filler et al (1991) Reported alteration of primary Karman vortex shedding by rotational oscillation of cylinder in Reynolds number range of 250 and 1200, peripheral speed due to rotational oscillation was between 0.5 and 3% of free stream speed.

Presence of co-rotating vortex pair and a time variation of drag coefficient that switches frequency abruptly at a discrete time for Re = 500, Ω 1 = 1 and S f = π/2, has been reported. D. Shiels and A. Leonard (2001) 2-D flows for Re = 15000 using high resolution viscous vortex method have been studied. Multi-pole vorticity structures revealing bursting phenomenon in boundary layer, causing large drag reduction during particular cases of rotary oscillation have been noted.
Literature survey (contd) J.-W. He et al (2000) Gradient-based classical optimization for 200 ≤ Re ≤ 1000 was performed. Finite element discretization was used and cost function gradient was evaluated by adjoint equation approach. 30 to 60% drag reduction reported. B. Protas and A. Styczek (2002) Rotary control of cylinder wake at Re = 75 and 150 using optimal control approach with adjoint equations over a time interval is reported. Advantage of velocity-vorticity formulation with usage of more localized and compact vorticity variable was noted. M. Milano and P. Koumoutsakos (2002) Drag optimization for flow past circular cylinder using two actuation strategies- belt type and apertures on cylinder, was studied. R. Mittal and S.

Genetic Algorithms (GA)s Essential components of GAs A genetic representation for potential solutions to the problem. A way to create the initial population of potential solutions. An objective (evaluation) function that plays the role of the environment, rating solutions in terms of their fitness. Genetic operators that alter the composition of children during reproduction. Values of various parameters that the genetic algorithm uses (population size, probabilities of genetic operators etc.)
Aims of present investigation Study the two dimensional simulation of rotationally oscillating circular cylinder.

Stream Function-Vorticity Formulation Navier-Stokes equations, in non-dimensional form are given as, Flow is computed in the transformed orthogonal grid plane, where Grid is stretched smoothly in the radial direction by the transformation, where,
Navier-Stokes equations in transformed plane Stream function equation (SFE) is given by, Vorticity transport equation (VTE) is given by, Pressure-Poisson equation (PPE) is given by,
Boundary and Initial conditions No-slip boundary condition on the cylinder wall, Convective boundary condition on radial velocity at outflow, The initial condition: impulsive start of cylinder in a fluid at rest.
Solving procedure Stream function equation (SFE) and PPE are solved using Bi-CGSTAB variant of conjugate gradient method. ILUT pre-conditioners used to make Bi-CGSTAB converge fast. Vorticity transport equation (VTE) is solved by discretizing diffusion term by second order central difference scheme and time-derivative by four-stage Runge-Kutta scheme. Convection terms of VTE are evaluated using compact schemes. Neumann boundary conditions on the physical surface and in the far- stream, required to solve PPE, are given by,
Compact schemes In the present investigation, the OUCS3 scheme is used. In the periodic direction, to evaluate first derivates, following form is used. In the non-periodic direction, additional boundary closure schemes for j = 1 and j = 2 are used, along with the above equation for j = 3 to N-2. For boundary closure, have been used. To control aliasing and retain numerical stability an explicit fourth order dissipation term is added at every point with

GA formulation SFE, VTE and PPE along with boundary conditions, define the system to be controlled with input as and the output is minimized. Selection operator: Tournament selection with participation size of two. Crossover operator: Simulated Binary Crossover (SBX) operator. Mutation operator: Polynomial mutation operator.
GA solution procedure Randomly generate population for the first generation in allowed decision variable space. Evaluate the cost function of the members for a user-defined time- horizon, measured from an initial time. Apply GA to the initial population for ‘G’ number of iterations and the best solution is recorded. Using this solution as the initial solution, another GA generation is started to find best control strategy for the next time- horizon. This procedure is continued till the best control strategy of consecutive generations are similar to each other or a maximum number of generations is reached.

Summary of results Computational procedure is calibrated by comparing the results with experimental results of Tokumaru and Dimotakis, for Re = 15000. Ability of the numerical method for DNS of bluff body flows by two- dimensional flow models has been testified. Rotary oscillation is shown to be equivalent to tripping the wall boundary layer aerodynamically A large drag reduction has been achieved, by shear release mechanism on one side of the cylinder, at comparatively low Reynolds number (Re = 1000). Efficacy of GA-based optimization strategy, capable of arriving at near-optimal solutions for a dynamic problem, has been emphasized in the present work.
Scope for future work Investigate whether rotary oscillation brings a phase shift on resultant force experienced by the cylinder. Control strategy of steady rotation coupled with rotary oscillation. Studying the multi-objective framework of the current problem, using reduction of flow unsteadiness as a second objective.
