- Use inviscid thermodynamic relations with the desired reference Mach number (Mach=0.2) to obtain total pressure (Pt) and total temperature (Tt) (relative to the reference static pressure and reference static temperature, respectively) at the tunnel inlet. Apply an appropriate inlet BC that fixes these total values; this inlet BC remains unchanged throughout the iterative procedure.
- Set static pressure BC at tunnel outflow boundary. (A typical starting value might be slightly lower than that
required for an empty tunnel; see
AIAA-2017-4126 for an example in a different wind tunnel.
In the QinetiQ tunnel geometry, the area ratio between the test section and downstream boundary
is approximately A
_{min}/A_{exit}= 0.474.#### An estimated starting back pressure for the provided QinetiQ tunnel configuration is P

_{exit}/P_{ref}≈ 1.02. - Run CFD solver.
- Use temperature (average of 4 probe locations), pressures, and total pressure computed by CFD at the tunnel probe locations,
along with the tunnel calibrations (described in above Q5m_Tunnel_Modeling_V01.pdf file) to calculate q/Pt and Mach in the CFD run.
Note,
__in an empty tunnel__, the computed Mach should also be achieved (seen) at the empty-tunnel calibration reference location ((X,Y,Z)=(1227.5, 791.7717, 198.00) in the provided scale).__However, when a test article is present in the tunnel, the computed Mach value is based on the calibration described in Q5m_Tunnel_Modeling_V01.pdf only, and the empty-tunnel calibration reference location is NOT used.__ - Iterate steps 2-5 until the computed Mach is within a desired tolerance (preferably within 0.195 - 0.205); i.e., if the computed Mach number comes out too high, then raise the back pressure, if too low then lower the back pressure. You may need to experiment to determine the effect, and use linear interpolation to determine the next back pressure to try (for example, if p_back1 yields M1 and p_back2 yields M2 (and neither M1 nor M2 is close enough to the goal of M=0.2), then try p_back = p_back1 + [(0.2 - M1)*(p_back2 - p_back1)/(M2 - M1)]). Note that this iterative procedure can take time. Once converged, other conditions, particularly Re, should also be checked using inviscid thermodynamic relations.
- Note that the required back pressure may be different for every case (it could be affected by the grid and the angle of incidence of the model in the tunnel).
