Study of Drag Coefficient Using CFD Tools

Priyadarshini, Varsa (2012) Study of Drag Coefficient Using CFD Tools. BTech thesis.



Flow over cylinder is frequently encountered in practice. The objective of this project is modelling and simulation of the flow over a cylinder by using CFD techniques in order to study the values of drag coefficient at different Reynolds number ranging from 1 to 100 at a given Length to Diameter ratio (L/D). Different length to diameter ratio (L/D) of cylinder is considered, ranging from 0.005 to 1 is taken. Study of the variation of drag coefficient at different L/D ratios of the cylinder at a constant Reynolds has been done graphically. Comparison of the values of drag coefficient at L/D equal to one with that of the sphere has been done graphically and discussed. Analysis and discussion of the flow over the cylinder at varying Reynolds number and different L/D ratios using velocity contours, pressure contours, streamlines and vorticity plots.
