    Development of Compact Finite Difference Boltzmann Method for Simulating Compressible Rarefied Gas Flow

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Alemi Arani, Ali (Author) ; Hejranfar, Kazem (Supervisor) ; Fouladi, Nematollah (Co-Supervisor)
    In this work, a high-order accurate gas kinetic scheme based on the compact finite-difference Boltzmann method (CFDBM) is developed and applied for simulating the compressible rarefied gas flows. Here, the Shakhov model of the Boltzmann equation is considered and the spatial derivative term in the resulting equation is discretized by using the fourth-order compact finite-difference method and the time integration is performed by using the third-order TVD Runge-Kutta method. A filtering procedure with three discontinuity-detecting sensors is applied and examined for the stabilization of the solution method especially for the problems involving the discontinuity regions such as the shock. The... 

    Design and Analysis of an Optimal Cooling System for a Supersonic Exhaust Diffuser Using a Water Jacket

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mahdian Dowlatabadi, Milad (Author) ; Farahani, Mohammad (Supervisor) ; Fouladi, Nematollah (Supervisor)
    Often in a vacuum test facility, a supersonic exhaust diffuser uses the energy of the outflow from the nozzle to create and maintain a vacuum condition in the engine test chamber. In this system, the temperature of the motor exhaust gas, which directly hits the diffuser walls, is much higher than the tolerance of the metal body of the diffuser. The purpose of this research is to design a cooling system for thermal protection of diffuser walls of a vacuum simulator using a water-jacket tool. At the beginning of this study, the effective parameters in the design of the water-jacket cooling system were identified. Then, a new algorithm to design and optimize the water-jacket cooling system was...
