Description

This project comprises the geometric evaluation of turbulent, steady-state, two-dimensional, and incompressible flows over the Coanda effect-based H.O.M.E.R. (High-Speed Orienting Momentum with Enhanced Reversibility) nozzle. The main purpose is to evaluate the influence of the central septum insertion (P) and change in dimensionless mass flow rate between two inlets (m*) over the deflection angle of the mixed jet (α), velocity fields (V), and thrust forces per unit length (F) at the nozzle exit. The time-averaged conservation equations of mass and momentum have been solved using the Finite Volume Method for all simulations.
