Flow of fluid over a surface and its effect has been an interesting topic for research for scientist for years. Adherence effect is the tendency of the fluid to get attached to the adjacent surfaces while the fluid flowing is passing along the wall boundary. This phenomenon of is used in this work to understand the variation in adherence with respect to change in tilt of the surface. This article presents the simulation and experimental analysis of the flow of air over tilted surfaces of different angles. The project was conducted to understand various factors influencing the surface adherence. The CATIA software was used to draw 3D model for the simulation and the simulation analysis was conducted in ANSYS FLUENT. The practical analysis was done with help of wooden setup and equipments at atmospheric pressure. The result of both simulation and practical are presented for comparison and representation of pressure, velocity and outlet discharge distribution along the distance of flow has studied. The motive of the article was to get higher outlet discharge using the principle of surface adherence effect.
Keywords- surface adherence, negative pressure, air flow
