SU^{2} Training

#### On This Page

#### Written Tutorials

Instead of writing a detailed user
manual, the approach has been taken to
teach the various aspects of the
SU^{2} code through a range of
tutorials. These are ordered roughly
by their complexity and how
experienced with the code the user may
need to be, noting that the more
advanced tutorials may assume the user
has already worked through the earlier
ones. Each tutorial attempts to
present new features of SU^{2}
and contains explanations for the key
configuration file options. For more
information on the exact learning
goals of a tutorial, these can be seen
at the beginning of each.

#### Quick Start Tutorial

##### Steady, 2-D Euler

This tutorial provides an introduction to using SU^{2} for flow and adjoint simulations on the NACA 0012 geometry. This tutorial is intended to demonstrate some of the key features of the analysis and design tools in an easily accessible format.

#### Bump in a Channel

##### Steady, 2-D Euler

This tutorial introduces a simple, inviscid flow problem and explains how boundary markers are used within SU^{2}. This tutorial shows how an internal flow computation can be performed using the inlet and outlet boundary conditions.

#### Inviscid ONERA M6

##### Steady, 3-D Euler

This tutorial performs a simulation of external, inviscid flow around a 3-D geometry. The specific geometry chosen for the tutorial is the classic ONERA M6 wing. The tutorial discusses the details of configuring 3-D flow conditions and customizing the multigrid options within the configuration file.

##### Steady, 2-D, Laminar Navier-Stokes

This tutorial is introduces mulitple equation sets in SU^{2} by simulating laminar viscous flow over a flatplate. The tutorial introduces in detail the numerial schemes in SU^{2} (flux schemes, etc.). It also introduces objective-based convergence criteria in which the change of a specific objective, such as lift or drag, is monitored in order to assess convergence.

#### Laminar Cylinder

##### Steady, 2-D, Laminar Navier-Stokes

This tutorial simulates flow around a geometrically two-dimensional circular cylinder. Additional numerical options are discussed, such as the activation of a slope limiter for upwind methods.

back to top >#### Turbulent Flat Plate

##### Steady, 2-D Spalart-Allmaras

This tutorial performs a RANS simulation with the Spalart-Allmaras (SA) turbulence model. Results are verified against the NASA codes FUN3D and CFL3D by comparing profiles of u+ vs. y+ against theoretical profiles of the viscous sublayer and log law region.

back to top >#### Turbulent ONERA M6

##### Steady, 3-D Spalart-Allmaras

This tutorial simulates the flow around an ONERA M6 wing in viscous flow. The ONERA M6 wing was designed in 1972 by the ONERA Aeordynamics Department as an experimental geometry for studying three-dimensional, high Reynolds number flows with some complex flow phenomena (transonic shocks, shock-boundary layer interaction, separated flow). It has become a classic validation case for CFD codes due to the simple geometry, complicated flow physics, and availability of experimental data.

#### Optimal Shape Design of a Rotating Airfoil

##### Steady, 2-D Euler, Adjoint

This tutorial performs shape design for a 2-D airfoil geometry. The geometry begins as a NACA 0012 airfoil rotating counter-clockwise in still air. This case shows how to use the SU^{2} Adjoint capability to solve for sensitivities needed by a gradient-based optimizer.

#### Constrained Optimal Shape Design of a Fixed Wing

##### Steady, 3-D Euler, Adjoint

This tutorial performs 3-D shape design using Free Form Deformation (FFD) tools for a 3-D fix wing geometry (initially the ONERA M6) at transonic speed in air.

#### Inviscid Supersonic Wedge

##### Steady, 2-D Euler

This tutorial introduces a simple, inviscid flow problem that will allow users to become familiar with using a CGNS mesh. Flow around a 2-D wedge geometry with a solid lower wall is simulated. Running this tutorial will require SU2 to be built with CGNS support, and some new options in the configuration file related to CGNS meshes will be discussed.
