Airfoil Shape Optimization for Transonic Flows of Bethe–Zel’dovich–Thompson Fluids
CONGEDO, Pietro; CORRE, Christophe; CINNELLA, Paola
High-performance airfoils for transonic flows of Bethe–Zel’dovich–Thompson fluids are constructed using a robust and efficient Euler flow solver coupled with a multi-objective genetic algorithm. Bethe–Zel’dovich– Thompson fluids are characterized by negative values of the fundamental derivative of gasdynamics for a range of temperatures and pressures in the vapor phase, which leads to nonclassical gasdynamic behaviors such as the disintegration of compression shocks. Using Bethe–Zel’dovich–Thompson gases as working fluids may result in low drag exerted on airfoils operating at high transonic speeds, due to a substantial increase in the airfoil critical Mach number. This advantage can be further improved by a proper design of the airfoil shape, also leading to the enlargement of the airfoil operation range within which Bethe–Zel’dovich–Thompson effects are significant. Such a result is of particular interest in view of the exploitation of Bethe–Zel’dovich–Thompson fluids for the development of high-efficiency turbomachinery.

Multi-Size-Mesh, Multi-Time-Step Algorithm for Noise Computation on Curvilinear Meshes
LE GARREC, Thomas; GLOERFELT, Xavier; CORRE, Christophe
Aeroacoustic problems are often multi-scale and a zonal refinement technique is thus desirable to reduce computational effort while preserving low dissipation and low dispersion errors from the numerical scheme. For that purpose, the multi-size-mesh multi-time-step algorithm of Tam and Kurbatskii [AIAA Journal, 2000, 38(8), p. 1331–1339] allows changes by a factor of two between adjacent blocks, accompanied by a doubling in the time step. This local time stepping avoids wasting calculation time, which would result from imposing a unique time step dictated by the smallest grid size for explicit time marching. In the present study, the multi-size-mesh multi-time-step method is extended to general curvilinear grids by using a suitable coordinate transformation and by performing the necessary interpolations directly in the physical space due to multidimensional interpolations combining order constraints and optimization in the wave number space. A particular attention is paid to the properties of the Adams–Bashforth schemes used for time marching. The optimization of the coefficients by minimizing an error in the wave number space rather than satisfying a formal order is shown to be inefficient for Adams–Bashforth schemes. The accuracy of the extended multi-size-mesh multi-time-step algorithm is first demonstrated for acoustic propagation on a sinusoidal grid and for a computation of laminar trailing edge noise. In the latter test-case, the mesh doubling is close to the airfoil and the vortical structures are crossing the doubling interface without affecting the quality of the radiated field. The applicability of the algorithm in three dimensions is eventually demonstrated by computing tonal noise from a moderate Reynolds number flow over an airfoil.
