FROM: Lars Davidson, Flow Sim, 12/8/2021
Subject: Large Eddy Simulation (LES), hybrid LES-RANS, Detached Eddy
Simulation (DES) and unsteady RANS. LES is suitable for bluff-body flows
or flows at low Reynolds numbers. To extend LES to cover industrial
flows at high Reynolds numbers, new approaches (hybrid LES-RANS, DES,
URANS, SAS, PANS, PITM) must be used. They are all based on a mix of LES
and RANS. The course will give an introduction to LES and these new
methods. LES, or any of the new approaches, is the first step when
performing accurate CAA (Computational Aero-Acoustics) The lectures will
be given on-line (Live) using Zoom. During the workshops, the
participants will get supervision in a joint Zoom room which will enable
participants to learn from each others questions. Part of the
supervision may also be given in individual break-out Zoom rooms.
Lectures will be given in the mornings; in the afternoons there will be
workshops using Python (recommended), Matlab or Octave. The participants
must have a PC/Mac/Desktop with one of these software installed. In the
workshops, the participants will use Python/Matlab/Octave for analyzing
analyzing SGS models, SAS, PANS, DES and DDES. Scripts will be use for
generating isotropic and anistropic (non-isotropic) synthetic turbulent
fluctuations for inlet boundary conditions and embedded LES.
