  author={Sergiy Yershov and Viktor A. Yakovlev},
  journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics},
The paper presents the study of the effect of a mesh refinement on numerical results of 3D RANS computations of turbomachinery flows. The CFD solver F, which based on the second-order accurate ENO scheme, is used in this study. The simplified multigrid algorithm and local time stepping permit decreasing computational time. The flow computations are performed for a number of turbine and compressor cascades and stages. In all flow cases, the successively refined meshes of H-type with an… 
Effect of geometric modification on flow behaviour and performance of reverse flow combustor
Numerical investigation had been performed on the reverse flow combustor of a mini gas turbine engine so as to investigate the performance characteristics of the combustor by means of geometry


Assessment of an Unstructured-Grid Method for Predicting 3-D Turbulent Viscous Flows
A method Is presented for solving turbulent flow problems on three-dimensional unstructured grids. Spatial discretization Is accomplished by a cell-centered finite-volume formulation using an
Two-equation eddy-viscosity turbulence models for engineering applications
Two new two-equation eddy-viscosity turbulence models will be presented. They combine different elements of existing models that are considered superior to their alternatives. The first model,
The Effect of Vortex Shedding on the Unsteady Pressure Distribution Around the Trailing Edge of a Turbine Blade
The wakes behind turbine blade trailing edges are characterized by large-scale periodic vortex patterns known as the von Karman vortex street. The failure of steady-state Navier-Stokes calculations
