Thesis
Abdessemed, C. Dynamic mesh framework for morphing wings CFD. (Thesis). University of the West of England. Retrieved from https://uwe-repository....ribe.com/output/1490739

In this work, a framework to perform high fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of dynamically morphing airfoils and wings is presented. An unsteady parametric method to model the deforming motion is proposed and then implemented in a... Read More about Dynamic mesh framework for morphing wings CFD.

Influence of non-iterative time-advancement schemes on the aerodynamic prediction of pitching airfoils using dynamic mesh (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Abdessemed, C., Yao, Y., Bouferrouk, A., & Narayan, P. (2019, June). Influence of non-iterative time-advancement schemes on the aerodynamic prediction of pitching airfoils using dynamic mesh. Paper presented at 8th International Symposium on Physics of Fluids (ISPF8)

A pitching airfoil problem is addressed in this paper to assess the use of a non-iterative time-advancement (NITA) scheme with dynamic mesh method, and also to estimate possible CPU time savings. Simulations have shown that using a combination of dyn... Read More about Influence of non-iterative time-advancement schemes on the aerodynamic prediction of pitching airfoils using dynamic mesh.
