Thermal stresses in a plate with hyperelliptical hole

  The aim of this paper is to study the thermal stress analysis in a plate with a hole in a hyperelliptical shape assuming the state of plane stress. The system of stress is analyzed using complex variable method under isothermal conditions.  The high stress concentration found at the edge of a hole is of great importance, therefore stress system at the tip and in the neighborhood of the tip of the hole...

Combined low-Reynolds-number k–ω model with length scale correction term for recirculating flows

  A concept for a new turbulence model, which combines the Low-Reynolds-Number (LRN) k–ω model with a Length Scale Correction (LSC) term is proposed. The present model was developed for solving recirculating flow which is an important feature in many engineering applications. The LSC term employed here is ω–LSC – a new LSC uses the analogy of Yap correction. By...
