    Abstract
    In this work, a preconditioned high-order weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) finite-difference lattice Boltzmann method (WENO-LBM) is applied to deal with the incompressible turbulent flows. Two different turbulence models namely, the Spalart–Allmaras (SA) and k−ωSST models are used and applied in the solution method for this aim. The spatial derivatives of the two-dimensional (2D) preconditioned LB equation in the generalized curvilinear coordinates are discretized by using the fifth-order WENO finite-difference scheme and an implicit–explicit Runge–Kutta scheme is adopted for the time discretization. For the convective and diffusive terms of the turbulence transport equations, the...

    , Article Petroleum Science and Technology ; Volume 31, Issue 18 , 2013 , Pages 1881-1890 ; 10916466 (ISSN) Tavakkoli, M ; Kharrat, R ; Ghazanfari, M. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    2013
    Abstract
    In this study, the nonlinear partial differential equations governing two phase flow through porous media are solved using two different methods, namely, finite difference and finite element. The capillary pressure term is considered in the mathematical model. The numerical results on a 2-D test case are then compared with the experimental drainage process and water flooding performed on a glass type micromodel. Based on the obtained results, finite difference technique needs less computational time for solving governing equations of two phase flow, but findings of this method show less agreement with the experimental data. The finite element scheme was found to be more adequate and its...

    Abstract
    This paper has developed an axisymmetric laminar and turbulent two-phase flow solver to simulate pressure-swirl atomizers. Equations include the explicit algebraic Reynolds stress model, the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes, and the level set equation. Applying a high-order compact upwind finite difference scheme with the level set equation being culminated to capture the interface between air-liquid two-phase flow and decreasing the mass conservation error in the level set equation. The results show that some recirculation zones are observed close to the wall in the swirl chamber and to the axis. This model can predict converting the Rankin vortex in the swirl chamber to the forced vortex in...

    Abstract
    This paper investigates implementation of upwind compact implicit and explicit high-order finite difference schemes for solution of the level set equation. The upwind compact implicit and explicit high-order finite difference schemes are well-known techniques to descritize spatial derivatives for convection term in hyperbolic equations. Applying of upwind high-order schemes on the level set equation leads to less error and CPU time reduction compared to essential non-oscillatory (ENO), weighted essential non-oscillatory schemes (WENO), and even different particle level set methods. The results indicate the error based on area loss decreases drastically with applying high-order upwind,...

    Abstract
    In this study, the fundamental problem of unsteady blood flow in a tube with multi-stenosis is studied. An appropriate shape of the time-dependent multi-stenosis which is overlapping in the realm of formation of arterial narrowing is constructed mathematically. Blood is considered as a viscoelastic fluid characterized by the Oldroyd-B model. For the numerical solution of the problem, which is described by a coupled, non-linear system of partial differential equations (PDEs), with appropriate boundary conditions, the finite difference scheme is adopted. The solution is obtained by the development of an efficient numerical methodology based on the predictor-corrector method. The effects of...

    Abstract
    Mesh point positions in Finite Difference Method (FDM) of discretization for the neutron diffusion equation can remarkably affect the averaged neutron fluxes as well as the effective multiplication factor. In this study, by aid of improving the mesh point positions, an enhanced finite difference scheme for the neutron diffusion equation is proposed based on the neutron importance function. In order to determine the neutron importance function, the adjoint (backward) neutron diffusion calculations are performed in the same procedure as for the forward calculations. Considering the neutron importance function, the mesh points can be improved through the entire reactor core. Accordingly, in... 

    Numerical solution of non-fourier heat transfer during laser irradiation on tooth layers

    , Article Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology ; Volume 31, Issue 12 , 2017 , Pages 6085-6092 ; 1738494X (ISSN) Falahatkar, S ; Nouri Borujerdi, A ; Najafi, M ; Mohammadzadeh, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    This study reports on the simulation of temperature distribution of human tooth under a laser beam based on non-Fourier models. The temperature in the tooth depth that directly results from the conduction heat transfer process is caused by the lengthy thermal relaxation time in the tooth layers. A detailed tooth composed of enamel, dentin, and pulp with unstructured shape, uneven boundaries, and realistic thicknesses was considered. A finite difference scheme was separately adopted to solve time-dependent equations in solid layers and soft tissue of the tooth. In this study, a dual-phase-lag non-Fourier heat conduction model was applied to evaluate temperature distribution induced by laser...
