This work focused on simulating shock-tube problem and the numerical framework is based on a two-phase flow model. Our simulation tool is an in-house FORTRAN multiphase compressible flow solver, RocSDT [31]. Specifically, this involves the Euler equations along with the Stiffened Gas Equation of State (EOS), an interface of liquid-gas type, and the effects of heat and mass transfer due to phase transition. This thesis described the implementation and incorporation of a phase transition model into a system of five partial differential equation model and the associated thermodynamic theory. The thermal and chemical source terms for phase transition modeling are handled via a sequence of relaxation processes that drive the mixture to the desired equilibrium conditions. In particular, a simple algebraic system of equations is used to solve for the equilbrium conditions. This algebraic relaxation technique along with our five-equation model are shown to be simple and effective. dc.format.mimetype application/pdf dc.language.iso en_US en_US dc.rights CC BY 4.0 en_US dc.rights.uri https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/legalcode en_US dc.title Numerical Modeling of Phase Transition in Shock Tube Problem en_US dc.type Thesis en_US dc.date.updated 2019-10-04T18:57:52Z thesis.degree.name Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering en_US thesis.degree.level Masters en_US thesis.degree.discipline Mechanical Engineering en_US thesis.degree.department Mechanical and Civil Engineering en_US thesis.degree.grantor Florida Institute of Technology en_US dc.type.material text
