Comparison of CFD simulations and measurements of flow affected by coanda effect
Department of Thermodynamics and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of
Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology, Technická 2896/2, 616 69, Brno
The article deals with experimental research and numerical simulations of specific phenomena in fluid flows called Coanda effect (CE), which has numerous important engineering applications. Although many researchers have concerned with wall jets, the physics of this flow still remains not well understood. This study is focused on analysis of behaviour of jet flow close to the wall and influence of its inclination. The flow has been visualized using smoke and velocity was measured by means of Hot Wire Anemometry (HWA). CFD simulations have been performed on the same geometry and compared with experiments in order to find a tool for correct prediction of the CE.
