Potential output of the project:

Different simulations of a ‘’Bladerider’’ flapped T-foil from a Moth foil will be processed and validated using a set of experiment which was processed in the Kelvin Hydrodynamics Laboratory in Glasgow in November 2018. These simulations will be used in conjunction to the experiments to investigate some of the complex phenomena associated with flapped T-foils. These include the interaction between the flow on the horizontal and vertical components of the foil, the free surface effects and ventilation. Indeed, this research focusses on understanding the change of flow pattern but also the conditions that prone this kind of hydrodynamic phenomenon. One of the main objectives is therefore to model natural ventilation using CFD in a two-phase flow. On the other hand, this project also aims at investigating the effect of tubercles on the main lifting foil of a moth sailing dinghy as it was previously proven that tubercles are an efficient device to control the flow and do delay stall.
The results and outputs of this project will be outlined in a PhD thesis and will also be published in conference and journal papers.
