Vorticity Based Flow Analysis and Visualization for Pelton Turbine Design Optimization

In Proceedings of IEEE Visualization (VIS), pp. 179–186, 2004.


Vorticity is the quantity used to describe the creation, transformation and extinction of vortices. It is present not only in vortices but also in shear flow. Especially in ducted flows, most of the overall vorticity is usually contained in the boundary layer. When a vo... [More ...]
