Title

Computational Investigation of Flow over Geometry Compliant Lattice Structures

Abstract

With the increasing prevalence of additive manufacturing, geometries that would not have been possible to manufacture just a few years ago are becoming a reality. One example is the ability to create pipes with integral, geometry compliant lattice structures. These compliant lattice structures offer the potential to greatly enhance heat transfer in arbitrary flow passages. This preliminary paper will focus on the development of an isothermal simulation model in OpenFOAM, to model the nature of the flow for a single unit cell, a unit cell screen, and a series of unit cell screens.
