2 Project Statement
A study is required of the aerodynamics of a rotating diamond-section body under various ﬂow conditions. Bodies such as these are used for varying the ﬂow rate of supersonic wind tunnels or for creating turbulence in open-air applications. A schematic of the system to be considered is shown below. ' c E

The body is initially travelling at a forward speed of M∞ in air at standard atmospheric pressure and temperature (101325Pa, 300K). It must then rotate from an initial position of the major axis aligned with the direction of motion through one quarter turn (clockwise as shown) at a rotational speed ω(t) = π ω0 sin ω0 t, where ω0 = 2πf . The length of each of the planes of the 2 body is 0.5m and the thickness is 0.2m (wedge half-angle of 11.54◦ ). Based on this analysis the given geometry is to be discussed with regards to the following points: 1. The more important qualitative features of the ﬂow (such as ﬂow separation or shock waves) around the body using plots of pressure or velocity contours as necessary 2. Compare the lift and drag produced by the body in the steady-state and transient cases, as well as to any theoretical values 3. Explain any possible differences which may arise through changes to the selection of viscosity / turbulence model
A single report is to be submitted by each group of 5 students comprised of group introduction, method and results and individual discussions. Additional results pertinent to individual discussions may be included but this should be avoided. Students are limited to a maximum of 3 typeset pages for their discussions. A single disc containing the group’s case and data (and any other relevant ﬁles), but excluding individual reports or images, must be submitted with said report. The report must be written in the format of a ﬁnal fourth year report with the associated
