Predicting pressure losses in aeronautical fuel injectors
This is a 3-year programme, started mid-2015 and funded by Conseil Régional d'Aquitaine (2014 Call) and two small-size companies, AD Industrie (Gurmençon, France) and GDTECH (Bordes, France). The objective is to investigate the possibility of using advanced RANS or hybrid RANS-LES approaches to better predict the pressure losses in aeronautical fuel nozzles. A one-year post-doc [YM] (ending in May 2016) assessed the capability of EBRSM-based RANS simulations to predict the discharge coefficient and the pressure loss of a fluid flowing through a diaphragm .
