MEMS Department Seminar Series - ANSYS Distinguished Lecturer - Parviz Moin

This is a past event.

“Towards Certification by Analysis: Application of Large Eddy Simulation to a Full Aircraft Configuration”

 

ABSTRACT: The use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for external aerodynamic applications has been a key tool for aircraft design in the modern aerospace industry. In takeoff and landing configurations, predicting the maximum lift an aircraft can produce, and the associated onset of boundary layer separation encountered at high angles of attack is critically important. Flow solutions from state-of-the-art solvers are unable to routinely comply with the stringent accuracy and computational efficiency requirements demanded by industry. In this lecture, I will demonstrate that leveraging large eddy simulation with appropriate wall/subgrid-scale models and low dissipation numerical methods suitable for complex geometries on modern compute architectures offers a tractable path towards meeting these accuracy and affordability requirements. 

BIOGRAPHY: Parviz Moin is the Franklin P. and Caroline M. Johnson Professor of Mechanical Engineering and the Founding Director of the Center for Turbulence Research (CTR) and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) at Stanford University. Professor Moin pioneered the use of Direct Numerical Simulation for the study of turbulence physics, and has written widely on the structure of turbulent shear flows.  His current interests include Large Eddy simulation of complex multi-physics turbulent flows.  Professor Moin is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, AIAA, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.  He is a member of the United States National Academy of Engineering, and the National Academy of Sciences.
