VLES Modeling of Flow Over Walls with Variably-shaped Roughness by Reference to Complementary DNS

VLES Modeling of Flow Over Walls with Variably-shaped Roughness by Reference to Complementary DNS Turbulent flow over variably-shaped rough walls, characterized by either a regular or a random arrangement of axisymmetric roughness elements in an open channel flow configuration, is investigated computationally within a VLES (Very Large Eddy Simulation) framework by utilizing a volumetric forcing-based roughness model. The prime objective of the present work is to assess the roughness model’s capability to predict mean velocities and turbulent intensities in conjunction with this recently formulated hybrid LES/RANS (Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes) model. The friction velocity-based Reynolds number is in the range Reτ = 460 − 500. A non-dimensional drag function accounting for the shape of the roughness elements is introduced and evaluated based on the results of complementary direct numerical simulations (DNS). The dynamics of the residual motion of the presently adopted VLES methodology is described by an appropriately modified elliptic-relaxation-based ζ − f ( ζ = v 2 ¯ / k $\zeta =\overline {v^{2}}/k$ ) RANS model. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png "Flow, Turbulence and Combustion" Springer Journals
