Animations showcasing the ACHEON HOMER nozzle

UBI released 3 multimedia animations illustrating the conceptual design of the HOMER nozzle and the guided vanes near inlet section. Ongoing 3D CFD Studies (Das and Pascoa, 2013) shows that the flows are not completely axial, thus the tangential component of the flow field can’t be neglected. Guided vanes were proposed for reducing the swirling […]
