This report is part of the General Purpose Fluid Mechanics Hands-on course at ENSEEIHT which focuses on the modeling of hydrodynamic instabilities with CFD codes like FLUENT.
We studied the Kelvin Helmholtz instabilities, that are produced by shear at the interface between two fluids with different physical properties (typically different density). This work mainly deals with 2D flows using Gambit for meshing and Fluent 5.0.2 for results computation on a SUN Ultra 1 Workstation. The purpose is to show the ability of CFD tools to predict those types of flow and to compare various types of meshing and modeling.
This work in four parts:
