Computational analysis of the flow through aerofoil cascades


   Department of Mechanical Engineering


About the Project

One of the major global concerns is the environmental pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, and there is a growing awareness of the impact of emission from the shipping industry using fossil fuel as a power source. Utilizing wind energy over the sea to offset fossil fuel consumption in ships has attracted more and more interest. One of the emerging technologies is to employ a set of ridged sail to power the ship. This project aims to use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to analyse and optimise the aerodynamics flow over ridged sail cascades.
