Lockheed P-38 Lightning (Crowood Aviation) by Jerry Scutts

By Jerry Scutts

Lightning! one of many best-named airplane of WW2, the Lockheed P-38 used to be additionally one of many few warring parties in construction all through hostilities. instantly recognizable by way of its twin-boom tail structure, the P-38 Lightning used to be one of many mainstays of the USAAF's fighter stock. Deployed in all theaters, Lightnings excelled in so much, being one of many few American opponents armed with cannon. topic to long improvement in the course of the conflict, the P-38 exemplified the technical height reached by means of aeronautical engineers within the 1940s.

One alternative way to solve these equations could be the LES approach. Nevertheless, the application of LES still presents a number of issues such as: excessive computational effort at high Reynolds number, difficulties in specifying initial and boundary conditions, and the necessity to perform 3D time dependant simulations for all applications. The other solution is to average the equations (RANS) and to use a turbulence model as a set of relations and equations to determine the unknown turbulent correlations that have arisen from the averaging process.

The consequence is a high turbulence level all around the spray, especially in the vicinity of the spark plug, which is suitable for the ignition. Figure 15 illustrates the evolution of the A/F ratio distribution during the stratified injection process. It shows that the spark is located at the edge of the spray. Moreover, the spray progresses very quickly, therefore the timing of the combustion has to be precisely defined, in order to avoid misfires. All these examples show the utility of CFD simulations based on turbulence modelling, to the design in automotive industry.
