Drag reduction in turbulent flows allows achieving of higher speeds and reducing energy consumption in the motion of submerged objects. An efficient technique for drag reduction uses dilute solutions of microfibers. In this paper, a review of available methods for the simulation of turbulent drag reduction by microfiber additives is presented. To compute the turbulent flow, the direct numerical simulation (DNS) technique is employed. The effect of the fibers on the flow is described by a non-Newtonian stress tensor, involving the distribution of fiber position and orientation. The fiber dynamics is governed by a Fokker-Planck equation. The computation involves a numerical solution of three-dimensional, time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations for the incompressible flow of a non-Newtonian fluid. In this article, various methods for solving the Fokker-Planck equation are reviewed.

In this paper, the optimal operation of pumping stations was determined using a genetic algorithm so that the minimum energy cost. The schedule for the operation of the water pump system can be a significant savings in the cost of energy to be achieved. Determine the optimum pump operation schedule an optimization model - simulation-based genetic algorithm was developed. The model integrates GA optimizer and EPANET hydraulic network solver in MATLAB. The proposed model is applied to find the optimal pump operation schedule of Dogonbadan water conveyance system from Kowsar Dam in an ordinary day of the year. The comparison of optimal schedule with ordinary operation strategy shows 26.8 percent reduction in total energy cost. This indicates the high capability of the proposed model.
