Aerodynamic and thermal modelling of effusion cooling in LES

Abstract : Numerical simulation is progressively taking importance in the design of an aeronautical engine. However, concerning the particular case of cooling devices, the high number of sub-millimetric cooling holes is an obstacle for computational simulations. A classical approach goes through the modelling of the effusion cooling by homogenisation. It allows to simulate a full combustor but fails in representing the jet penetration and mixing. A new approach named thickened-hole model was developed during this thesis to overcome this issue. A work on improving the mesh resolution on key areas thanks to an automatic adaptive method is also presented, leading to a clear breakthrough. In parallel, as the flame tube temperature is a cornerstone for the combustor durability, a low-cost approach is proposed to predict it. To meet the time-constraints of design, it is based on thermal modelling instead of a direct thermal resolution.
