Computational Fluid Dynamics Internship Test

Intern has to take Computational Fluid Dynamics internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Computational Fluid Dynamics topic.

1. CFD provides results of ____________
(A) Continuous time varying results at discrete locations
(B) Discrete points of space and time
(C) Continuous spatial results at discrete time points
(D) Continuous in time and space
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: CFD discretizes the equations and also the domain and solves the discretized equations for only the points in the discretized domain using numerical methods.

2. Aerodynamics engineers obtain the lift and pressure drag by integrating the ___________ distribution over a surface.
(A) Velocity
(B) Pressure
(C) Temperature
(D) Viscosity
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Lift force can be obtained by the difference in pressure between the top and bottom surfaces of a body. Similarly, the pressure drag of a body can be obtained by finding the pressure difference between the front and back halves of a body. Both of these quantities depend upon the pressure distribution.

3. Which is the input part of a CFD problem?
(A) Post-processing
(B) Flow visualization
(C) Pre-processing
(D) Solving
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: The pre-processing part of a CFD problem is the first step before starting to process the problem. This is where the inputs are specified.

4. This created a problem in modelling supersonic blunt nose.
(A) Change of flow equations from elliptic to hyperbolic
(B) High speed with high temperature
(C) Supersonic Mach number
(D) High temperatures
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Straight to the nose of the vehicle, the shock is normal. This results in a subsonic region and elliptic flow equations. But, downstream the shock is oblique which creates a supersonic region resulting in the elliptic equation. This was the problem in modelling supersonic blunt nose. In later years this was overcome by a better model.

5. Which of these transport phenomena do not involve any source term?
(A) Heat conduction
(B) Heat radiation
(C) Turbulence models
(D) Chemical reactions
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Many of the physical phenomena include the source and sinks. The equations of turbulence models, chemical reactions, radiation heat transfer and multiphase flows contain source terms. Pure heat conduction problem does not include any source term.
