Abstract/Description:
Ducts with turbulence-promoting ribs are common in heat transfer applications. This study usesa recent modal extraction technique called Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) to determinemode shapes of the spatially and temporally complex flowfield inside a ribbed duct. One subjectmissing from current literature is a method of directly linking a mode to a certain engineeringquantity of interest. Presented is a generalized methodology for producing such a link utilizing thedata from the DMD analysis. Theory suggests exciting the modes which are identified may causethe flow to change in such a way to promote the quantity of interest, in this case, heat transfer. Thistheory is tested by contouring the walls of the duct by the extracted mode shapes.The test procedure is taken from an industrial perspective. An initial, unmodified geometry pro-vides a baseline for comparison to later contoured models. The initial case is run as a steady-stateReynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes model. Large-Eddy Simulation generates the necessary datafor the DMD analysis. Several mode shapes extracted from the flow are applied to the duct wallsand run again in the RANS model, then compared to the baseline, and their relative performanceexamined.
