Jet pump optimization through Reynolds averaged: Navier-Stokes simulation analysis
2015 (English)In: 22nd AIAA Computational Fluid Dynamics Conference, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)Text
The paper presents the aerodynamic analysis of an air jet pump by means of Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations. A baseline configuration, reproducing an existing jet pump is first analysed from the perspective of overall mean compressible flow behaviour, turbulence production and mixing, and efficiency performance. Several constructive solutions are proposed in order to achieve enhanced mixing and efficiency performance. All the cases are investigated for the same operating condition of interest. As a result of the numerical analysis, two solutions are selected as potential improved constructive solutions in terms of mixing and efficiency performance. It is intended to complement the study by further experimental measurements for the baseline set-up and for the two selected configurations, in order to assess their actual performance and to validate the numerical data.
