Experimental and Numerical Methods for Hydrodynamic Profiles Calculation
1 Constanta Maritime University, Constanța, Romania
ABSTRACT: The calculation of a hydrodynamic profile for a fluid that flows around mainly consists in de-termining the variation of drag force and lift force. Thus, for NACA 6412 profile, we will calculate and com-pare the changes of values of the coefficient forces mentioned above. The calculation will be done both exper-imentally in a naval wind tunnel and with a computational fluid dynamics - CFD (ANSYS 13). These experimental and numerical approaches can be used to study finite scale naval profiles such as the rudder.
