Simulations of three dimensional freely decaying homogeneous turbulence in a periodic cube have been used to examine in a detailed and quantitative manner the behaviour of a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) using implicit subgrid modelling. This paper details the form and behaviour of the implicit subgrid models for the Minmod and third order...

We analyze the evolution of a diffusion flame in a turbulent mixing layer using large-eddy simulation. The large-eddy simulation includes Leray regularization of the convective transport and approximate inverse filtering to represent the chemical source terms. The Leray model is compared to the more conventional dynamic mixed model. The location...

The basic idea of multiscale methods, namely the decomposition of a problem into a coarse scale and a fine scale, has in an intuitive manner been used in engineering for many decades, if not for centuries. Also in computational science, large-scale problems have been solved, and local data, for instance displacements, forces or velocities, have...

The turbulence dissipation rate and turbulence shear stress are estimated inside a cylindrical, stirred flow mixer by carrying out Stereo PIV measurements in twelve vertical and three horizontal planes. The flow domain is vertically oriented, filled with the water. A commercially-available, three-blade impeller, HR-100, is used as the agitator....

The shape of the nozzle geometry is increasingly attractive in heating, ventilation and air conditioning applications. However an important consideration in the design of nozzle geometry is its effect on the dynamics of near flow field jet and to minimise the manufacturing cost for practical applications. In this investigation the effect of an...

In this paper we explore the specification of time dependent boundary conditions suitable for the simulation of low Mach number reacting flows. The standard treatments used to date are based on the method of characteristics, and essentially set to zero the incoming characteristics; this practise has been shown to have deleterious effects on the...

In this paper, direct numerical simulation is used to study the interaction between turbulence and a free surface. The configuration is original due to the fact that a random force generates turbulence in the vicinity of a plane parallel to the free surface. Turbulence is therefore statistically steady and nearly isotropic at some distance of...

In this work, a comparison between the results of point-particle direct numerical simulations and PIV/PTV experiments of a particle-laden horizontal channel flow is presented. The numerical simulations were preformed trying to mimic as much as possible the experimental conditions. The accuracy of the point-particle approach was evaluated by...

The purpose of this paper is to develop an accurate analysis code for the flow of arc-heater by employing advanced numerical models. Governing equations are hyperbolic-type axisymmetric Navier-Stokes equations which include joule heating by arc, radiation and turbulent transport effect. Joule heating is simply calculated by Ohm’s law with the...

A theoretical analysis is presented on the dependence of the standard and variational multi-scale Smagorinsky models on the proximity of the LES filter width Delta to the integral length scale of turbulence L on the one hand, and to the Kolmogorov scale eta on the other hand. Moreover modifications of the models are formulated, which respond...

Spectral transfer processes in magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence are investigated by decomposition of the velocity and magnetic fields in Fourier space into helical modes. In 1992, Waleffe (Phys. Fluids A, 4:350 (1992)) used this decomposition to calculate triad interactions for isotropic hydrodynamic turbulence and determined whether a given...

The use of wall functions has been investigated for LES and URANS numerical simulation in pulsating and oscillating channel flow applications. The results show that the wall function approach is accurate in the so-called quasi-steady regime but there are discrepancies with the experimental results in the intermediate frequency range. A special...

To investigate the behavior of the concentration of a passive scalar in a turbulent flow with realistic high Schmidt numbers, one needs a very fine grid to capture all length-scales that are present in the concentration. An efficient method to increase the spatial resolution without a drastic raise of the computational costs is to apply a Local...

We present a novel algorithm, namely Feature Tracking Velocimetry (FTV), which is less sensitive to the appearance and disappearance of particles and to high velocity gradients than classical Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The basic idea of FTV is to compare windows only where the motion detection may be successful, that is where there are...

Non-uniform filtering of the Navier-Stokes equations expresses itself, next to the turbulent stresses, in additional closure terms known as commutator errors. These terms require explicit subgrid modeling if the non-uniformity of the filter is sufficiently pronounced. We derive expressions for the magnitude of the mean flux, the turbulent stress...

In the field of turbulent combustion, Lagrangian Monte Carlo (LMC) methods (Pope, 85) have become an essential component of the probability density function (PDF) approach. LMC methods are based on stochastic particles, which evolve from prescribed stochastic ordinary differential equations (SODEs). They are used to compute the one-point...

The purpose of this paper is to show that the Fourier-based Nonlinear Galerkin Method (NLGM) constructs suitable weak solutions to the periodic Navier--Stokes equations in three dimensions. We re-interpret NLGM as a Large-Eddy Simulation technique (LES) and we rigorously deduce a relationship between the mesh size and the large-eddy scale.
