  • Yano, Masayuki; Darmofal, David L. (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011-09-21)
    This report analyzes the behavior of three variants of the dual-weighted residual (DWR) error estimates applied to the p-dependent discretization that results from the BR2 discretization of a second-order PDE. Three error ...
  • Fidkowski, Krzysztof J.; Darmofal, David L. (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006-10)
    This report presents a mesh adaptation method for higher-order (p > 1) discontinuous Galerkin (DG) discretizations of the two-dimensional, compressible Navier-Stokes equations. The method uses a mesh of triangular elements ...
  • Vailong, Hubert J. B. (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997-02)
    One of the major difficulties faced in the numerical resolution of the equations of physics is to decide on the right balance between computational cost and solutions accuracy, and to determine how solutions errors affect ...
  • Willcox, Karen Elizabeth (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000-02)
    Aeroelasticity is a critical consideration in the design of gas turbine engines, both for stability and forced response. Current aeroelastic models cannot provide high-fidelity aerodynamics in a form suitable for design ...
  • Loyd, Bernard (Aerospace Computational Design Lab, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1989-02)
    A novel semi-implicit scheme for the Navier-Stokes equations is presented and evaluated. The semi-implicit scheme combines an implicit temporal integration in the bodynormal directions with explicit temporal integrations ...
  • Barter, Garrett Ehud (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008-06)
    The accurate simulation of supersonic and hypersonic flows is well suited to higher-order (p > 1), adaptive computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Since these cases involve flow velocities greater than the speed of sound, an ...
  • Padmanabhan, Aravind (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997-02)
    In this thesis we report on a new micromachined floating-element shear-stress sensor for turbulent boundary layer research. Applications in low shear-stress environments such as turbulent boundary layers require extremely ...
  • Israeli, Emily Renee (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008-08)
    Natural flappers, such as birds and bats, effectively maneuver in transitional, low Reynolds number flow, outperforming any current small engineered flapping vehicle. Thus, engineers are inspired to investigate the flapping ...
  • Lorkowski, Thomas (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997-01)
    In order to understand the effect of small scale forcing on turbulent flows and its implications on control, an experimental investigation is made into the forcing of the inertial scales in the wall region of a turbulent ...
  • Mohnot, Anshul (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008-05)
    The present work aims to address the problem of fluid-structure interaction using a discontinuous Galerkin approach. Starting from the Navier-Stokes equations on a fixed domain, an arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) ...
  • Rathnasingham, Ruben (Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997-06)
    An experimental investigation is made into the active control of the near-wall region of a turbulent boundary layer using a linear control scheme. System identification in the boundary layer provides optimal transfer ...

  • Unknown author (Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, 1989-05-01)
    We have developed an interactive graphics system for the display of three dimensional CFD solutions on unstructured hexahedral grids. This system is implemented on a high-performance graphics supercomputer. Visualization ...
