Iterative Design and Analysis of a Hydro Turbine via Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
The Vista TF data warehouse provides an integrated overview of incompressible flow turbomachines and their design, with particular emphasis on pumps and turbines.
In the field of engineering, continuum mechanics or more specifically, fluid mechanics, incompressible flow (also referred to as “isochoric flow”) belongs to a flow in which the associated density is constant inside a fluid parcel, a miniscule volume that streams with the flow velocity. A comparable declaration that implies incompressibility is that the deviation of the flow velocity is zero.
Incompressible flow doesn’t indicate that the fluid itself is inelastic. It has been demonstrated through rigorous research in the field that under the proper circumstances, even elastic fluids can be exhibited as an incompressible flow. Inelastic flow assumes that the density remains constant within an allotment of fluid that streams with the corresponding flow velocity.
