Contaminent Dispersion around an M1 Battle TankMatthew J. LitkePrincipal Investigator:
In this numerical simulation, contaminant dispersion around a M1 Battle
Tank was computed on the Cray T3D massively parallel supercomputer.
The geometry of the M1 Tank was modeled using an interactive 3D program*
(see fig.1). The model was then fed
into an automatic mesh
generation program* to create a surface mesh of the tank and
its domain (see fig.2). Another
automatic mesh generation
program* used this surface mesh to create the 3D mesh
(see fig.3)
used by the finite element simulation
codes. Using a flow simulation code*
the NavierStokes equations were solved (see fig.4).
After obtaining the fluidflow solution, the data was used with an
advectiondiffusion code* to simulate a contaminant dispersion around
the M1 Tank (see fig.5 and
movie).
