Project TitleSWIFT v. 400
Track CodeLEW-17635
Websitehttp://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/5810/rvc/
Description

SWIFT is a multi-block computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis code for turbomachinery. It solves the Navier-Stokes equations using explicit finite-difference techniques. It can be used for linear cascades, isolated blade rows, or multistage machines. Three differencing schemes are available – central differences, the AUSM+ scheme, and the H-CUSP scheme. Three turbulence models are also available – the Baldwin-Lomax, Cebeci-Smith, and Wilcox 2006 k-omega models.

Six test cases are included with SWIFT: Goldman's turbine vane, the SSME two stage fuel turbine, the large, low-speed centrifugal compressor, and NASA compressor rotors 37, 67, and stage 35. Excel files compare computed results to experimental data.

Grids must be generated with TCGRID, available separately. SWIFT requires a Fortran 90 compiler and PLOT3D-compatible CFD visualization software. It is usually run on Linux systems, but can be run on a PC or Mac.
