Numerical simulation of viscid flow around hydrofoil
This paper presents results of application of a viscid fluid model to calculate flow around a finite-span hydrofoil. The presented calculations were performed with the use of SOLAGA software developed by this author. The used theoretical model of viscid liquid motion was described, consisted of averaged liquid motion equations and Spalart-Allmaras one-equation model of turbulence. Also, a numerical model based on the finite volume method was shortly presented. Calculation results were shown in the form of distribution diagrams of pressures, longitudinal component of velocity and longitudinal component of rotation velocity. Additionally, the presented characteristics of the lifting force coefficient and drag force coefficient were compared with experimental data.
