Numerical application

The Numerical Application working group is concerned with the application of numerical methods to solve highly complex flow processes in turbomachinery and turbomachinery components.  For the investigation of phenomena such as transition, scale-resolving methods are used in order to be able to accurately represent the mechanisms involved. The development of post-processing methods in the time, frequency and modal range is a necessary component to make local and temporal structures visible in a targeted manner. Furthermore, the group develops methods for the design of turbomachinery for innovative energy storage concepts and innovative thermodynamic cycle designs in which special gases such as CO2 or ethanol are used. The working group uses both in-house and commercial tools.
