We present an integrated in-situ visualization approach for partitioned multi-physics simulation of fluid-structure interaction. The simulation itself is treated as a black box and only the information at the fluid-structure interface is considered, and communicated between the fluid and solid solvers with a separate coupling tool. The visualization of the(More)
In this paper we investigate the application of an adaptive meshing algorithm in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for the computation of the flow around a wind turbine airfoil. We use the DU91 wind turbine airfoil, which is a 25% thick airfoil, found typically at the mid-span section of a wind turbine blade. Wind turbine applications typically involve(More)
Thermal interaction of fluids and solids, or conjugate heat transfer (CHT), is encountered in many engineering applications. Since time-accurate computations of such coupled problems can be computationally expensive, we consider loosely-coupled and stronglycoupled solution algorithms in which higher order multi-stage Runge-Kutta schemes are employed for(More)
