Numerical Investigation of High-Reynolds-Number Air-Ventilated Water Flow under Solid Body with Surface Geometry Variations

Air-ventilated cavities formed under or around the hulls of marine vehicles can reduce water drag. Hull configurations with partial air ventilation where air cavities reattach to body surfaces are of

Pulsed combustion of fuel–air mixture in a cavity under the boat bottom: modeling and experiments

The physical and mathematical model for simulating combustion and detonation of fuel mixture in the semi-confined gas volumes above the free surface of water is applied for modeling the transient

Pulsed combustion of fuel–air mixture in a cavity above water surface: modeling and experiments

A mathematical model for simulating combustion and detonation of a fuel–air mixture in the gas cavity above the free water surface is developed. The model is based on solving the conservation

Study on Applicability of Energy-Saving Devices to Hydrogen Fuel Cell-Powered Ships

The decarbonisation of waterborne transport is arguably the biggest challenge faced by the maritime industry presently. By 2050, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce

Hydrodynamics of a Displacement Air Cavity Ship

To study the resistance reduction of an air cavity for a displacement vessel, a simplified model of a single cavity is tested in a cavitation tunnel. The drag force acting on the cavity and the

INVESTIGATION OF NUMERICAL SCHEMES IN AIR CAVITY COMPUTATIONS

Air cavity and air chamber concepts have been proven to be an efficient way for drag reduction in low-speed ships. Series of experiments were conducted in the SSPA cavitation tunnel to simulate the

Transom effect on the properties of an air cavity under a flat-bottom hull

One of the promising methods for ship drag reduction relies on air cavities generated under ship hulls. The air-cavity characteristics are sensitive to the hull geometry and flow conditions. In this

Direct numerical simulation of a turbulent hydraulic jump: turbulence statistics and air entrainment

We present direct numerical simulation (DNS) of a stationary turbulent hydraulic jump with inflow Froude number of 2, Weber number of 1820 and density ratio of 831, consistent with ambient water–air

Friction Drag Reduction of External Flows with Bubble and Gas Injection

The lubrication of external liquid flow with a bubbly mixture or gas layer has been the goal of engineers for many years, and this article presents the underlying principles and recent advances of

Partial cavity drag reduction at high reynolds numbers

Air lubrication to reduce hull skin friction is an idea that originated more than a century ago. There are few implementations of this concept, and there are even fewer systematic investigations at

Computational fluid dynamics of dispersed two-phase flows at high phase fractions

This study describes the development and validation of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methodology for the simulation of dispersed two-phase flows. A two-fluid (Euler-Euler) methodology previously
