Dear all,
Similar to the filtering operation in dynamic Smagorinsky model for the incompressible flows: Code:
homogeneousDynSmagorinsky.H 1, How the class LESfilter is initialized? In homogeneousDynSmagorinsky.H, it appears as the priviate data: Code:
LESfilter& filter_ 2, In homogeneousDynSmagorinsky.C, the filter operation is applied as filter_(x), I do not why here filter_(*) is used like a function, it is an object! Thank you so much if anyone can provide some guidance.

Hi OFFO (the acronym OF is a lot easier to write ),
If the questions were about hardcore LES mathematics, I wouldn't be able to answer, but since it's C++ related questions, here we go: Quote:
Quote:
If you look into the header file respective to LESfilter: https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...er/LESfilter.H  you'll see that there are four "operator()", each one receiving a different type of field. These are abstract virtual methods, as explained here: http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/polymorphism/  which means that you will have to look at the specific filter implementation to see what the respective operator does. Best regards, Bruno

Dear Bruno,
Thank you first for your so detailed help. I will dig into it later today. Now I am implementing a dynamic constants in my mixing model, where the test filtering is used. Thank you again. OFFO.

Dear Bruno,
About the following lines: Code:
filterPtr_(LESfilter::New(U.mesh(), coeffDict())), filter_(filterPtr_()) Code:
// Return a reference to the selected LES filter static autoPtr<LESfilter> New ( const fvMesh&, const dictionary& ); Besides, filter_ is the reference of the object "filterPtr_()". Are the above what I saying correct? In the dynamic LES models , the expressions filter_ extensively appears, like filter_(U()) and filter_(D). what is the relation between the filter_(U()) and filter_(filterPtr_())? A little confused. Thank you so much. OFFO

Hi OFFO,
I know, C++ can get seriously confusing I suggest that you give a good study at this tutorial: http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/ So, the notion to keep in mind is that this: Code:
filterPtr_(LESfilter::New(U.mesh(), coeffDict())), filter_(filterPtr_()) In practice, for example, doing this: Code:
MyOwnClass::MyOwnClass() : filterPtr_(LESfilter::New(U.mesh(), coeffDict())), filter_(filterPtr_()) { } Code:
MyOwnClass::MyOwnClass() { filterPtr_ = LESfilter::New(U.mesh(), coeffDict()); filter_ = filterPtr_(); }
As for: Code:
filter_(U); Code:
filter_.operator()(U); Code:
filter_(U); For example, doing: Code:
filter_(2.0+1); Best regards, Bruno

Hi Bruno,
I there a way to use filter_ operator in a solver like channelFoam, as in can be used in models.

From what I can see, my guess is that you'll have to create a new local instance of LESfilter, indicated in point #2, at post #2, namely this one:

Yes, Bruno is right.
In order to use coeffDict(), you need to define the following in createFields.H Code:
autoPtr<compressible::LESModel> les ( compressible::LESModel::New ( rho, U, phi, thermo ) ); Code:
autoPtr<LESfilter> filterPtr(LESfilter::New(U.mesh(), les>coeffDict())); LESfilter& filter(filterPtr());

Hello
Could any one help me to know where the function "filter_" is defined in OF? https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...dynOneEqEddy.C this function, filter_, used many times here and in other dynamic based SGS models but I could not find its definition.

Thank you, the problem is solved in this thread:
autoPtr<LESfilter> filterPtr_; LESfilter& filter_; Since it is an autoPtr its special Type is defined during runtime. Meanwhile, I would like now to apply a new filter, which is called "scaledependent dynamics viscosity" from this paper: A scaledependent dynamic model for largeeddy simulation: application to a neutral atmospheric boundary layer, by PorteAgel et al. A scaledependent Lagrangian dynamic model for large eddy simulation of complex turbulent flows , which needs a third filter as well, could any one gives a help? Thanks a lot

On the meanwhile, may I ask you why in dynamicSmagorinsky, the used filter width is not two times larger than the cell size, it calls filter_, without doubling the filter width.

Hi Ehsan,
Sorry, I have no idea. I'm not familiar with LES modelling itself. Perhaps openfoammaofnepo (the forum member who started this thread ) can answer about that? Nonetheless, I believe there are a lot of threads about dynamicSmagorinsky itself, including a modified model provided here: https://bitbucket.org/albertop/dynamicsmagorinsky Good luck! Best regards, Bruno
