Two Zone Turbine Blade with Tip Clearance

This case represents internal flow through a turbine. The geometry is periodic and only one instance of the blade needs to be meshed. The grid generated using CENTAUR includes the solid region of the blade to form a two zone grid that can be used to model conjugate heat transfer.

Complexities:

  • Tip Clearance between blade and casing
  • Different cell requirements for fluid and solid regions
  • Curved periodic surface along which prisms grow
