'NACA submerged duct' simulation project by pfernandez


I created a new simulation project called 'NACA submerged duct':

The geometry replicates the Ames wind tunnel section used, back in the 1940's, to experimentally investigate NACA submerged duct entrances.

The intention is to compare the simulation results against declassified experiments carried out at the time.

More of my public projects can be found here.


Wind tunnel configuration at the Ames Research Center used as a reference for this simulation.


@pfernandez, really nice project!

What’s the word on how the results are comparing to the experimental values?


Hi @AnnaFless,

I’m finishing up some post-processing; will show some results shortly. Results do not exactly match due to particularities of the experimental setup, but the trend does.


@pfernandez, makes sense - looking for to it :smile:
