Propeller Modelling Using CFD Techniques. Simulation and Report

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) represents a branch of fluid mechanics that uses algorithms, numerical methods and computers in order to simulate various processes associated to flow conditions. In this manner, the flow developed in naval propellers is simulated by using a number of conservation equations together with several additional equations, models for turbulence, pressure, cavitation, heat exchange and chemical species transport or dispersed phases equations. Anyway, there may be several approaches when developing the simulation scenario. One of them is the steady flow simulation, where all the flow quantities depends only on the spatial location. When developing transient simulations, all the flow parameters changes with time. The aim of this article is to study the differences established between the obtained results in the two cases.
