Help needed
I am running LES of turbulent channel flow but am going to put a trip in the flow to generate the turbulence before running LES. Any ideas of how i should do this and what size the trip would need to be.

Thanks in advance

Hi David

If you are running LES, why you don't use in the inlet one of the Fluctuation Velocity Algorith; you have the Vortex Method and the Spectral Synthesizer. In the Vortex method, for example, you can specify a number of Vortices in the inlet. Then you have a turbulence Specification method and there you can use k and epsilon (from RANS), turbulent intensity, length scale, viscosity radio, etc.

Good luck
