Abstract
In preparation for calculating effective wakes by replacing a propeller with an embedded force field, the DRDC Atlantic flow solver TRANSOM has been modified to allow for mass and momentum source terms in the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations. The modifications have been validated using three flows for which analytic solutions are available: unidirectional flow with a Gaussian mass source distribution, unidirectional flow with a Gaussian momentum source distribution, and flow through an elliptically loaded actuator disk. The latter flow was also calculated using ANSYS CFX. In all cases the agreement with the analytic solutions was very good.
