LES test filtering
Hi all,
I am doing a simple open channel flow simulation, with shear defined by the log law as the bottom boundary. The domain was descritized with a finite volume staggered grids. When test filtering for the Dynamic LES SGS, particularlly at the bottom boundary for the terms SSij, what boundary conditions do we provide to close the equations? 
Re: LES test filtering
If you do not resolve the viscous and buffer layer, you need to be careful with the kind of boundary conditions that you employ for the model. I would suggest you to search for review articles on LES by Moin. He has a detailed discussion on the implementation of the BC.

Re: LES test filtering
Thank you Harish for the reply. Can you provide me with the reference/paper title that you meantioned? thank you in advance.

Re: LES test filtering
Harish,
thank you very much. I will look into both the papers.
