hello,

i am new in les. My teacher ask me what is the level of LES now, what Renolds?
and can it use in complex boundary conditions now?

thank u very much!

Hi yzeyue,

Your question is quite vague. There are plenty of books regarding turbulence modelling that may help you.

LES is essentially a simulation that directly solves the large scale motion but approximates the small scale. Through the LES model u can resolve all large turbulent strucutres up to the available grid limit. The small structures are modelled, by imposing a filter method, SGS. There are plenty of subgrig scale models.

BTW, LES simulation are usually quite expensive. U can find:
Purely LES models (quite expensive within BL)
Hybrid ones (RANS within BL) and LES outside of it which reduce a lot the computation costs (very often referred as Wall modelled LES).

As u can see, it can be quite interesting this turbulence model which became one of the most appellative with the advent of high performance computers!

What u mean by saying complex boundaries? AFAIK u can deal with any type of BC's as in RANS!

Regards

Thx very much!

I majored in axile compressor, and my teacher hope that I can learn and use LES in the compressor's optimization.

I do not know how high is the Reynold can be done now.

Thx!

FMDenaro will become famous soon enough
for LES of compressible flows, you can find some help in the book of Sagaut
