The investigation into different phenomena can be done easily with numerical analysis. Some of the most famous phenomena are already simulated by Holzmann CFD such as the Magnus Effect, the Taylor-Rayleigh instability or the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. People who love soccer should be aware of the Magnus effect, as it is a very common phenomenon in this kind of sport. However, it is also necessary for golf, tennis, table-tennis and so on.


  • Description
  • REVIEWS
The following free training case investigates into the Magnus effect. A 2D case is generated by using snappyHexMesh and other OpenFOAM applications. The cylinder inside the fluid domain starts to rotate after 15 s. Due to the rotation, the fluid close to the wall will accelerate based on friction forces. The faster the cylinder wall will rotate, the more momentum is transported into the fluid domain. This force will deviate the path of the moving circle (football) or in this case, the fluid that is passing by. The passive scalar (cf. video) was modeled by using the function object functionality. However, this is removed based on a free tutorial.

Requirements
Linux system
the vim text editor (or any editor you prefer)
OpenFOAM®-4.x/6.x
