INI Seminar Room 1
2D flows around neutral buoyancy wedge submerged in a tank with continuously stratified fluid were calculated using conventional time-dependent governing equations set in frame of OpenFOAM codes. Fine structure of different variables fields (density or pressure and their gradients, velocity, vorticity, rate of energy dissipation) was analyzed in wide range of the problem geometry and stratification. Numerical results are compared with data of schlieren visualization of the self-moving wedge in the laboratory tank.
