Advanced Turbulence Modelling
This course gives a detailed introduction to unsteady turbulent flow physics, with a particular focus on DES and LES methods. It discusses the theoretical and numerical approaches, and the best practice to adopt when conducting an LES. Examples are given of LES of industrial problems demonstrating methods of analysis, verification and visualisation.

Who should attend?

This course is ideal for those who are:

* involved in the simulation of complex turbulent flows and
need detailed best practice guidelines
* researchers/students who plan to or are currently studying
turbulence and/or RANS methods
* experienced engineers looking for a refresher course on
the physics of turbulent flows and current cutting-edge
modelling techniques with a particular focus on unsteady flows.


Upon completion of the course you will be able to conduct an
effective CFD simulation of an unsteady turbulent flow having:

* understood the underlying flow physics,
* made a trade-off between different applicable LES models,
* selected an appropriate grid resolution based on the flow
physics and
* verified and visualised the simulation.

This will give immediate benefits to the sponsoring
organisation as the returning employee/researcher will have
a detailed understanding of turbulent flows, and will know
how to apply DES and LES methods to model unsteady turbulent
phenomena. DES and LES methods have been clearly identified
as the future for turbulence simulations, hence it is a key
capability for any organisation using CFD.


The course features lectures on an Introduction to Unsteady
Flow Physics; The Concept of Filtering; The LES and DES
methods; LES Modelling approaches; Wall Modelling;
Multiphase/Multi-species mixing; Analysis and Visualisation
of Unsteady Flow Fields.
