Furor
PRIZES WORTH Rs. 20,000 TO BE WON !!
Introduction
Furor is the event based on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) . CFD is one of the techniques in fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyse problems involving fluid flows.
Imagine at a major airport in some part of the world, a sleek and beautiful aircraft rolls down the runway, takes off and rapidly climbs out of sight, able to accelerate to hypersonic speeds within seconds within the earth’s atmosphere. How would you analyse such a FUROR, produce results within a short time, yet with maximum precision? The answer to this lies in CFD.
Event Specifications
ROUND 1 : Elimination Round
There are three Problem Statements for this round (At least on of these problem needs to be solved).
PROBLEM STATEMENT 1
LAMINAR FLOW BETWEEN THE PLATES
BOTTOM PLATE IS STATIONARY AND UPPER PLATE MOVING WITH VELOCITY “u” IN THE DIRECTION OF THE FLOW.
The participants are required to report :
 Pressure drop in the direction of the flow.
 Annotated plot of pressure, velocityx and velocityy.
PROBLEM STATEMENT 2
COMPRESSIBLE FLOW IN A NOZZLE
CONSIDER AIR FLOWING AT HIGHSPEED THROUGH A CONVERGENTDIVERGENT NOZZLE HAVING A CIRCULAR CROSSSECTIONAL AREA, A, THAT VARIES WITH AXIAL DISTANCE FROM THE THROAT, X, ACCORDING TO THE FORMULA
A = 0.1 + X^{2}; 0.5 < X < 0.5
WHERE A IS IN SQUARE METERS AND X IS IN METERS.
P_{1}= 101,325 Pa
T_{1}= 300K
P_{2}= 3738.9 Pa
The participants are required to report :
 Pressure drop in the direction of the flow.
 Annotated plot of pressure, velocityx and velocityy.
 Colour plot of temperature variation.
PROBLEM STATEMENT 3
STEADY FLOW PAST A CYLINDER
DIAMETER = 2 m
The participants are required to report :
 Velocity Profile of the flow.
 Drag coefficient of the cylinder.
 Pressure coefficient around the cylinder.
In the first round which is an elimination round ,participants are expected to solve at least one of the above three problem statements
ROUND 2 : Final Round
The final round of the event will be held during Quark where every team will be given a unique CFD problem to solve using ANSYS as the simulation software which will be provided.
Eligibility
Any student from ug1 to ug4 is eligible to participate.
Rules
 Prob. Statement 1: 100 points
 Prob. Statement 2: 200 points
 Prob. Statement 3: 300 points
 The students can participate in maximum number of 2 per team and minimum of 1 per team.
 The solution to the three problem statements given will be awarded points according to their difficulty level.
 The problem statements given above are weighted as follows:
 The points gained by the teams selected will be carried forward to the final round of Furor where every team will be given a unique CFD problem to solve during Quark 2010.

The students are expected to solve any one of the above three problems and have to email their report to " [email protected] ".
 In elimination round the students are free to use any simulation software.
 For the final round the software provided to the teams for simulation will be ANSYS.
 The final points tally will be made and winner will be declared accordingly.
 There is no guarantee that the teams doing the most difficult problem will be selected till their solutions and report are upto the discretion of judges and event managers.
 In any case the decision of the jury and event managers will be final and binding.
Judging Criterion
The reports submitted by the teams will be evaluated based on equal weightage given to
 Understanding of fluid mechanics and grid generation.
 Interpretation of results.
 Accuracy of results.
 Selection of simulation parameters.
The participants have to prepare their report in not more than 3 pages, excluding snapshots of their grid generation part and also different plots.
Certification Policy
 The teams clearing the elimination round will be given certificate of the participation.
 The teams which are able to solve final round problem will be given certificate of excellence and the Cash Prize.The prize money will be uploaded soon.
 The winner, 1st runner up and 2nd runner up teams will be given certificate of merit.
