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)
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 strongly-coupled solution algorithms in which higher order multi-stage Runge-Kutta schemes are employed for(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)
