Unsteady Simulations for Industrial Flows
Large Eddy Simulation (LES), hybrid LES-RANS, Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) and unsteady RANS
The development of computers and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has made the numerical simulation of complex fluid flow, combustion, aero-acoustics and heat transfer problems possible. Turbulent flow in three-dimensional, complex geometries -- unsteady or steady -- can be dealt with
Presently CFD methods can replace, or complement, many experimental methods; we can use a numerical wind tunnel instead of an experimental one.
Today, most CFD simulations are carried out with traditionalRANS (Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes). In RANS, we split the flow variables into one time-averaged (mean) part and one turbulent part. The latter is modelled with a turbulence model such as k-eps or Reynolds Stress Model.
For many flows it is not appropriate to use RANS, since the turbulent part can be very large and of the same order as the mean. Examples are unsteady flow in general, wake flows or flows with large separation. For this type of flows, it is more appropriate to use Large Eddy Simulation (LES). In order to extend LES to high Reynolds number flows new methods have recently been developed. These are called DES(Detached Eddy Simulation),URANS (Unsteady RANS), PANS(Partially Averaged Navier-Stokes) or Hybrid LES-RANS. They are all unsteady methods and they are a mixture of LESand RANS.
The course will give an introduction to LES, DES, hybrid LES-RANS and unsteady RANS.
