hi
i guess flow isnt , fully devesloped , and a length needs to be fully developed turbulent flow .

Hi,
depends how you want to evaluate the energy spectrum (at a specific point, or over the whole domain). In the dnsFoam the energy spectrum is calculated, so you can simply code your own post processing tool by copying the routines. Code:
#include "fvCFD.H" #include "Kmesh.H" #include "UOprocess.H" #include "fft.H" #include "calcEk.H" #include "graph.H" // * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * // int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { #include "setRootCase.H" #include "createTime.H" #include "createMeshNoClear.H" #include "createFields.H" // * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * // Info<< nl << "Starting time loop" << endl; instantList timeDirs = timeSelector::select0(runTime, args); Kmesh K(mesh); forAll(timeDirs, timeI) { runTime.setTime(timeDirs[timeI], timeI); Info << "Time =" << runTime.timeName() << endl; Info<< "Reading field U\n" << endl; volVectorField U ( IOobject ( "U", runTime.timeName(), mesh, IOobject::MUST_READ, IOobject::AUTO_WRITE ), mesh ); calcEk(U, K).write(runTime.timePath()/"Ek", runTime.graphFormat()); Info<< "ExecutionTime = " << runTime.elapsedCpuTime() << " s" << " ClockTime = " << runTime.elapsedClockTime() << " s" << nl << endl; } Info<< "End\n" << endl; return 0; } gregor Last edited by gregor; July 11, 2011 at 04:37. Reason: corrected code to create U for every time dir

hi gregor, thanks for your post. i'm simulating a pipe flow with LES and i want to measure the energy spectrum "one dimensional" over the radius of the pipe. in dnsFoam the whole domain ist calculated if i'm right (?). so i could sample the E(k) data with a function in the controlDict file, right? best regards, grandgo

EDIT: The error message is because your domain is not a box. If look at the KMesh.C file it is counting all cells along every direction. Then it multiplies the cell numbers and if they do not match the total number of cells it raises an error. gregor Last edited by gregor; July 6, 2011 at 04:21.

yes, it was my worry, that it has something do to with my domain not being cubeshaped. thanks anyway. best regards grandgo

hi foamers,
i need your opinions. i have a LES case with a domain of about 6.5e6 cells, reynolds number is 23000, the courant number is about 1, deltaT 1e6 sec . i'm using a modified pisoFoam parallel with 16 cores, 2,4ghz each. the calculation time for one time step is about 200 seconds. i'm wondering if the calculation time is acceptable or not. what do you think? within reason or do i have to change anything? best regards grandgo

The PISO algorithm requires lower CFL numbers, so if I were you I'd reduce the time step significantly until maxCourant is below 0.1, maybe even less. You're modeling a pipe flow, don't you? For that given Reynolds number you can go coarser on the grid; maybe reducing the total cell count by a factor of two would be sufficient. Also, if possible, I recommend you to double your proc number to 32. Which sgsModel are you using, btw?

Regarding u'^2, T'^2 and Yi'^2

Hello Folks,
I think my question is suited for this post and I am hoping I get to learn more about some of the postprocessing of variables in openFOAM. Following are my questions regarding u'^2, T'^2 andYi'^2. 1) Is u'^2 that we obtained from prime2Mean same as the u_sgs^2? Similarly is T'^2 that we get from prime2Mean also same as T_sgs^2? 2) If not, then how are Tprime2Mean related to T_sgs? 3) I am trying to compare <T_measured> (time averaged mean values) with simulations and heance I compare it with T_mean as obtained from mean suing fieldAverage calculation in OpenFOAM. I am wondering if this is an appletoapple comparison, bececause T_mean from openFOAM is mean of the resolved scale values and not the mean of instantaneous values as calulated for measurements. Please share your thoughts and I think this is an important point for folks using LES and comparison with measurements. Thanks, Nir Last edited by N. A.; July 12, 2011 at 11:06.

really thanks for your post. I used LES and I want to draw E(k)K, but my domian is not a box (a cylinder). how can I use the code in dnsfoam? is it possible? I would appreciate any help from you. best regards.

Hi Alberto,
I downloaded your version of perturbU since I was having the same problem as you described below. However, now it throws up a similar error saying Quote:
1) What is the mathematical constant? 2) How can I implement it in the code and compile it. 3) What is the significance of the constant? Thanks in advance, Dhruv. Quote:

Hello everyone,
I am using OF2.1.1 OneEqEddy LES model for my case having 6.5 million cells. I imported the mesh from fluent. checkMesh said the mesh is OK but it has non orthogonality:  Checking geometry... Overall domain bounding box (1.47 0.17 0.19) (0.384 0.17 0.19) Mesh (nonempty, nonwedge) directions (1 1 1) Mesh (nonempty) directions (1 1 1) Boundary openness (9.64958e17 2.34786e15 6.13025e16) OK. Max cell openness = 4.58304e15 OK. Max aspect ratio = 299.485 OK. Minumum face area = 3.41806e11. Maximum face area = 0.000249108. Face area magnitudes OK. Min volume = 1.22828e14. Max volume = 4.16394e07. Total volume = 0.20005. Cell volumes OK. Mesh nonorthogonality Max: 87.0638 average: 19.2898 *Number of severely nonorthogonal faces: 18931. Nonorthogonality check OK. <<Writing 18931 nonorthogonal faces to set nonOrthoFaces Face pyramids OK. Max skewness = 2.88371 OK. Coupled point location match (average 0) OK. Mesh OK.  I gave appropriate boundary conditions. I mention some of them which could be wrong(please correct me). 1) There are 4 mass flow inlets where i gave the following in /0/U file:  type flowRateInletVelocity; flowRate constant <value>; value uniform (0 0 0);  There is a velocity inlet for which i gave conditions as usual. type fixedValue; value uniform (<value> 0 0);  2) pressure: All patches/walls except outlet(p=0) have 0 gradient. 3) B Internal field, velocity and mass flow inlets have 0 value. exit and walls have 0 gradient. 4) k (turbulent kinetic energy) Internal field has k=0.8 (same as velocity inlet) mass flow inlets(assumed to have negligible turbulence) have k=1e2 (arbitrary value) Velocity inlet has k=0.8 exit: 0 gradient walls: {type kqRWallFunction; value uniform 0.8;} 5)nuSgs internalfield: 1e7 (arbitrary value) Inlets and exit: 0 gradient Walls: { type nuSgsUSpaldingWallFunction; value uniform 1e7; }  For delta, i am using 'cubeRootVol' fvSchemes and fvSolution are the same as the one used in TUTORIALS "incompressible/pisoFoam/les/pitzDaily".

Well, two hints that subsequetly come to my mind when I read your post.
Firstly, try to set nNonOrthogonalCorrectors higher. Your value of 0 won't correct nonOrthogonality... Try to go with 2 since your mesh with about 6.5 million cells will take a lot more with increasing the number of correctors. Secondly, you should initialise k with a higher value (the internalFields). That might help. Use GAMG for p. (There are a lot of tutorials on how to change the fvSolution in order to use GAMG.

Hi Rob,
Thanks for the reply. 1) I tried different value for k (updated in the previous thread). 2) I used nNonOrthogonalCorrectors=1 since nNonOrthogonalCorrectors=2 takes lot of time. 3) I have read in some posts that GAMG is good for serial computing and PCG is good for parallel computing So i continued with PCG only.(please check pisoFoam pressure issue ) Please tell me your opinion. Is there a great difference between GAMG and PCG results? With the above corrections, the solution is diverging again. Do you think nNonOrthogonalCorrectors=2/GAMG can stabilize the results? I kindly request other users opinion also . Kind regards, Achinta Last edited by achinta; June 19, 2012 at 09:26.

I doubt that GAMG will stabilise your solution.
Maybe you should send someone your case so he or she can check some possibilities... Or you should at least provide some more information By the way, I usually use "Euler" instead of "backward" for ddtSchemes.

Does anyone have the compressible LES lowReOneEqEddy reference? I can't find it anywhere?
Thanks a lot for your help. João.
