CFD Investigation of the Hydrodynamic Structure Around a Modified Anchor System
This chapter presents some CFD simulation results of the hydrodynamic structure around a modified anchor system. Using the CFD code ANSYS Fluent 17.0, the finite volume method was used to solve the Navier–Stokes equations. This study was carried out using the standard k–ε turbulence model. The comparison between our numerical results and the experimental results found in the literature shows a good agreement.
