Khan, Milanovic, and Hammad Present Paper at ASEE-NE Conference
The research paper, "CFD Modeling of Submerged Impinging Jets with Various Separation Distances," reported on the capability of general purpose computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code to predict the flow field of a submerged jet impinging normally on a smooth flat surface at various separation distances. The performance of the following turbulence models, k-ε, k-ω, and SST, was validated with available Particle Image Velocimetry data.
The results presented in the aforementioned work represent a broad coverage of impinging jets for a variety of different flow configurations. Detailed descriptions, both quantitatively and qualitatively, are given in Khan's master's thesis (University of Hartford).
