Description:

ERCOFTAC: Transition Modelling II, GE Munich , Germany,
22-23 May 2013

In the past three decades, significant progress has been
made in the development of turbulence models, due to the
effort of many research groups. However, in many
applications, the important effect of laminar-turbulent
transition has only been included in a very primitive way
such as by tripping boundary layers based on empirical
criteria. With the general growth of the use and importance
of CFD methods and the increased wish for more accurate
simulations, the need has grown for more reliable transition
prediction methods. This has resulted in an intense
development of transition modelling approaches in the last
decade.

The aim of the course is to discuss the physical phenomena
in different transition processes and the appropriate
approaches for modelling them. The focus of the course is on
external aerodynamic flows and internal turbomachinery flows.

In aerodynamic flows, transition is typically the result of
flow instability of Tollmien-Schlichting type or cross flow
type. In turbomachinery flows, the main transition mechanism
is bypass transition imposed on the boundary layers by high
levels of free stream turbulence.

Specifically, the course aims to provide:

- An overview of transition modelling approaches

- A discussion of transition mechanisms

- Detailed discussion of approaches, dependent on the
application area

- Recommendation for appropriate and effective application
of transition models.
