Simulation of non-periodics flows using the fourier pseudo-spectral and immersed boundary methods / Simulação de escoamentos não-periódicos utilizando as metodologias pseudo-espectral e da fronteira imersa acopladas




Modern engineering increasingly requires the comprehension of phenomena related to combustion, aeroacustics, turbulence transition, among others. For these purposes the Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) requires the used high order methods. One of these methods is the Fourier pseudo-spectral method, that provides an excellent numerical accuracy, and with the use of the Fast Fourier Transform algorithm (FFT), it presents a low computational cost in comparison to anothers high-order methods. Another important issue is the projection method of the pression term, which does not require the pressure computation from the Navier-Stokes equations. The procedure to calculate the pression field is usually the most onerous in classical methodologies. Nevertheless, the pseudo-spectral method can be only applied to periodic boundary flows, thus limiting its use. Aiming to solve this restriction, a new methodology is proposed at the present work, which has the objective of simulating nonperiodic flows using the Fourier pseudo-spectral method. For this purpose the immersed boundary method, that represents the boundary conditions through a force field imposed at Navier-Stokes equations is used. As a test to this new methodology, a classic problem of Computational Fluid Dynamics, The Lid Driven Cavity was simulated. The obtained results are promising and demonstrate the possibility to simulating non-periodic flows making use of the Fourier pseudo-spectral method.
