Khan, Milanovic, and Hammad Present Paper at ASEE-NE Conference

Fahad Khan, PhD student of mechanical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and CETA alumnus; Ivana Milanovic, associate professor of mechanical engineering, CETA; and Khaled Hammad of Dantec Dynamics presented a technical paper at the American Society of Engineering Education–Northeast Section (ASEE-NE) in April in West Hartford, Conn.

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).
