The University is operating on a normal schedule today. Hartt Community Division classes and activities are canceled for the remainder of today and this evening. This evening's McAuley Lecture, presented by the Presidents' College, has been canceled.
Lyutsia Dautova, master of
engineering student; Ivana Milanovic, associate
professor of mechanical engineering, CETA; and Khaled
J. Hammad, assistant professor of engineering at Central
Connecticut State University, presented a research paper at the
International Conference on Innovation and Trends in Applied
Computing (ITAC), which took place in Nagpur, Maharashtra,
India, in February.
The paper, "Experimentally Validated CFD Model of a Turbulent Jet Stirred Tank," focused on the capability of general purpose computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code to predict flow field inside a jet-stirred cylindrical vessel. The goal was to assess turbulence models and provide numerical data for various configurations of a fully developed turbulent jet. ANSYS Fluent was used to model the submerged jet issued vertically downward from a long pipe. Simulation results for symmetrical jet placement were validated with Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements.
