Initial conditionfor turbulent channel flow in LES
hi, i am solving fully developed plane channel flow by LES. I am using periodic boundary condition in steramwise(x-direction),and spanwise(z-direction).A no slip b.c for top and bottom wall(y-direction).
For initial condition i am taking a fully developed mean profile with random perturbation for the u-component (streamwise)of velocity. and v=0,w=0. like as follows... For the whole domain---- u(x,y,z)=(1-y**8)+0.005*(RAND(x,y,z)-0.5 v(x,y,z)=0.0 w(x,y,z)=0.0 And in fortran programming language--- IND=0 do 55 i=1,iim do 55 j=1,jim do 55 k=1,kim u(i,j,k)=(1-y(j)**8)+0.005*(RAND(IND)-0.5) v(i,j,k)=0.0 w(i,j,k)=0.0 p(i,j,k)=1.0 IND=IND+1 55 continue i,j,k--is spatial grid in three directions iim=maximum grid no in x-direction jim=maximum grid no in y-direction kim=maximum grid no in z-direction RAND(IND)------is a inbuilt function in fortran. As, the value of IND , change in the loop--then RAND(IND), will give a value , between--0.0-1.0 my question is--------- 1. Is my approach correct. 2.Do i need random values for v and w velocity component. 3.Do i need to change the random function. Please help me. A warm thanks in advance.. |
