Useful LES tools in Fluent - Part 3

Updated December 21, 2013 at 04:17 by sbaffini (Update)

These are the implementations of two static SGS models, due to Vreman and Nicoud (see the attached files for the detailed references). These models are in the same spirit of the well known WALE model; still, they are different in several aspects.

The models are provided without any kind of warranty; still, no specific problem came up during testing.

For wall bounded turbulent flows in Fluent i strongly suggest the Vreman model due to its specific, theoretically wrong,...

Useful LES tools in Fluent - Part 2

Posted August 2, 2013 at 04:27 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

A couple of routines i regularly use to output solution files in more manageable ascii files for post-processing in MATLAB. Of course this only makes sense when working in simple geometries where cells have regular patterns (e.g., simple boxes for computations in channels and ducts).

1) output.c: Used to dump an instantaneous field file

2) outputavg.c: Used to dump an averaged field file

More details can be found in the files

Useful LES tools in Fluent - Part 1

Posted August 2, 2013 at 04:15 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

Here i collect some very basic tools i used when performing basic LES computations in Fluent.

1) Custom field function for the Q criterion (q_crit.txt, to be renamed in .scm). Some Fluent versions (12, 13 and maybe 14) only have a "Normalized Q criterion" scalar, while previous ones simply don't have it at all. This custom field function is what i used in those dark days.

2) Several initialization routines (init*.c and scalefield.c) fully described in the files...

Q-criterion isosurfaces in MATLAB

Posted July 1, 2013 at 11:33 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

Let us suppose you have the following matrices:

x(nx,ny,nz): x coordinates of your grid

y(nx,ny,nz): y coordinates of your grid

z(nx,ny,nz): z coordinates of your grid

dudx(nx,ny,nz): x-wise derivative of x-wise velocity component

dudy(nx,ny,nz): y-wise derivative of x-wise velocity component
.
.
.
dwdz(nx,ny,nz): z-wise derivative of z-wise velocity component

This is, more or less, how i...

Basic finite volume tools

Posted July 1, 2013 at 11:29 by sbaffini (NuTBox)

At the following link:

http://rapidshare.com/files/1564297057/UFVMOM.rar

there is a basic MATLAB tool to handle unstructured finite volume grids (fluent .msh or .cas files) and to perform basic interpolations, gradient computations, plots etc. No actual FV computation is ever performed or implemented, however, the main structure of the code is clearly there.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The tool is actually a collection of functions, grouped by tasks...
