Engineering Turbulence Modelling and Experiments 5

Turbulence is likely one of the key concerns in tackling engineering circulate difficulties. As strong desktops and exact numerical equipment are actually on hand for fixing the circulation equations, and because engineering functions almost always contain turbulence results, the reliability of CFD research relies more and more at the functionality of the turbulence versions.

Sample text

The marine engine manufacturer gives a graph of engine power and rpm. On this there will be two curves: 43 DIESELS AFLOAT one showing what the engine is capable of delivering at full load at all rpm, and a second showing what a fixed pitch propeller can harness if it is matched correctly to the boat’s maximum speed and engine’s maximum power and rpm. This curve is known technically as the propeller law power. Different authorities use different shaped curves, as it’s an inexact science and the curve will, in any case, be specific to the design of propeller.

Springs control how far these weights fly out. • The tension of these springs is adjusted by the speed control lever (‘throttle’). • The force on the springs is balanced by the centripetal force on the weights to control the speed of the engine. • Any movement of the weights inwards or outwards forces a fuel control ‘rack’ to move. • Movement of the rack causes a fuel control ‘pinion’ to rotate. • The angular position of the pinion shaft determines the quantity of fuel delivered by the fuel injection pump.

Too much load If the load is so great that the requested rpm cannot be achieved, the governor will not control engine speed and acceleration fuel will continue to be supplied to the engine, even though the engine is running at a constant (too low) rpm. Where is the governor? If the fuel injection pump is mounted on the engine casing and driven directly by the engine camshaft, the governor is inside the timing gear-case of the engine. If the fuel injection pump is a separate unit, mounted externally to the engine, the governor will be mounted inside the pump casing.
