Badminton Shuttlecock Flight CFD Simulation, ANSYS Fluent Training

The study of the motion of objects in air or other fluids has always been of interest. Due to science’s progress in the simulation of such phenomena, engineers have ever tried to do the best possible design in this field. Many of the changes in the appearance of such objects that move in the fluid have been due to this issue. There are many examples in this field that have caused significant changes. The fuselage of aircraft, the type of fins, and their appearance, the shape of the fuselage of cars, the fuselage of ships and submarines, etc., are a few examples of regard.

The importance of this issue is that even the appearance of far fewer virtual objects has been affected. Changes in the formation of the body of the golf ball are one of these cases. The ball used in badminton is no exception and has undergone many changes resulting from such studies.

Project Description

In this project, the airflow around a badminton shuttlecock has been investigated by ANSYS Fluent software. The airflow enters the computational domain with a velocity of 94 m/s and passes on the ball. A Realizable k-epsilon model with standard wall functions is exploited to solve turbulent flow equations.

    The Realizable k-epsilon model has been used for turbulent flow, but could you please elaborate on how this model differs from other turbulence models and why it was chosen for the shuttlecock simulation?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The Realizable k-epsilon model is known for its robustness and ability to provide accurate results for a wide range of turbulent flows. It includes improvements over the standard k-epsilon model with enhanced mathematical constraints on the Reynolds stresses. This results in better prediction of the spreading rate of both planar and round jets. For the simulation of the badminton shuttlecock in air, accuracy in the prediction of turbulent wake and complex flow elements is crucial. The Realizable k-epsilon model was chosen exactly for its improved accuracy in such scenarios. It is particularly effective in flows with strong curvature, vortices, and jets, which are characteristics present in the airflow around a shuttlecock during flight.

    The shuttlecock simulation project does an excellent job of detailing the process of airflow analysis using ANSYS Fluent. Your standards for meshing and detailed explanation of the solver settings are particularly helpful. The application of the steady-state assumption and discounting gravity’s effect seem suitable for analyzing the performance of shuttlecock in high-speed conditions. It’s also wonderful to see how your utilization of the k-epsilon model and the chosen wall function affect the accuracy of the simulation results.

    The training material seems very detailed. I was wondering, with the airflow set at 94 m/s, what are the expected effects on the shuttlecock’s trajectory? Does the training give insight on that?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      Our training material includes a comprehensive analysis of the airflow around the shuttlecock, which at a speed of 94 m/s can significantly affect its trajectory due to aerodynamic forces.

    The CFD training material seems comprehensive. I enjoyed how the simulation includes detailed setups like the realizable k-epsilon turbulence model. However, how does excluding the gravitational effects impact the accuracy of the badminton shuttlecock’s behavior during its flight?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The exclusion of gravitational effects in the badminton shuttlecock CFD simulation simplifies the problem, making it less computationally demanding. Nevertheless, in real life especially for such a light object as the shuttlecock, gravity plays a crucial role in determining its flight characteristics. By not including gravity in the simulation, we would not be capturing its natural arcing trajectory and the rate at which it would decelerate and fall. This could be significant in the design and response analysis phase, as modifications based on gravity-inclusive data might produce different results.

    The Realizable k-epsilon model with standard wall functions was used in this simulation. Can you explain why this was chosen over other turbulence models?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The Realizable k-epsilon model along with standard wall functions was selected for simulating the turbulent flow around the badminton shuttlecock due to its capability to more accurately predict the flow pattern around bluff bodies. This model adjusts the transport equation for turbulent viscosity to account for the realizable physical constraints on the normal stresses which often results in better performance for flows like those over the highly curved surfaces of a shuttlecock. Furthermore, the standard wall functions are capable of providing a reasonable balance between accuracy and computational expense when dealing with flows that involve boundary layers which are essential when analyzing the aerodynamic properties of objects such as a shuttlecock.

    The training provides an excellent foundation for understanding the complex airflow dynamics around a badminton shuttlecock. The realizable k-epsilon turbulence model seems particularly effective for capturing the intricacies of turbulent flow in this scenario. Well done on the unstructured mesh as well; it appears to offer the necessary refinement without becoming computationally prohibitive. Looking forward to more insightful simulations!

    The Realizable k-epsilon model was used in the shuttlecock simulation. How does this model help in accurately predicting the shuttlecock’s flight, and are elements like spin considered in the simulation?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The Realizable k-epsilon model adds improvements to the turbulence model, enhancing the accuracy for flows with strong swirls or separation. It provides reliable results for the aerodynamic performance of the shuttlecock. In this simulation, the study focuses on the steady state airflow effect on the shuttlecock, offering insights into pressure and velocity distribution. Spin factors are typically part of a more complex simulation involving transient analysis, which might not be considered in this particular study.
