Within the framework of the Slither project, financed by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Sappi, the Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides et d’Acoustique (UMR 5509) and Phimeca are participating in the optimization of media flows in an aeronautical parts scraping device.
a CFD numerical model of the scraping head dealing with both the high air flow velocities and the transport of the scraping media.
the rebound uncertainties related to the non-sphericity of the scraping particles.
the numerical model by comparison with a test campaign.
the performance of the scraping head using the validated numerical model.
