naslovnica_Kuhljevi_dnevi_2015_4

Every year, the Slovene association for Mechanics (Slovensko društvo za mehaniko) organizes conference Kuhljevi dnevi (Kuhelj memorial conference), which honors the life and work of Slovene scientist Anton Kuhelj. This year the conference was in Moravske Toplice from 24th to 25th of September.

Dragica Jošt attended the conference and presented the paper:

Dragica Jošt  and Aljaž Škerlavaj attended ANSYS` Convergence Conference on 27th May 2015 in Ljubljana.

ACCUSIM group participated with the presentation:

Recent improvements of performance prediction by CFD for all types of water turbines

Authors: D Jošt, A Škerlavaj, M Morgut, E Nobile

Improvement of performance prediction by transient simulations and advanced turbulence models for Francis, Kaplan, bulb and Pelton turbines was presented.

Workshop FRANCIS-99

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway, and Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden, announced three workshops for Francis turbines. The goal of the first one was to determine the state-of-the-art of numerical predictions for steady operating conditions. The second and the third workshop will be focused on transient operation of turbines and fluid-structure interaction, respectively. In all workshops, a high-head Francis turbine model (Tokke model) will be employed as a reference test case. The model was designed and experimentally measured at Water Power Laboratory at NTNU.

Aljaž Škerlavaj and Mitja Morgut attended Workshop FRANCIS-99 in Trondheim, Norway. ACCUSIM group participated with the paper:

Numerical simulation of flow in a high head Francis turbine with prediction of efficiency, rotor stator interaction and vortex structures in the draft tube
