In a distance above the ground, my LES result is not good
2 Attachment(s)
Dear foamers:

I am confused by my LES result. My simulation is a wind engineering problem. I use Smagorinsky model with Van Driest damping function, and Wall function the same time. Through my compration along a horizontal line behind building, my result is good near building, but smaller and smaller farer from building.

Who khows why like this ?
my simulation dt=5e-5, now the interation steps is about 60000 steps, total time is 3 second. Although the total time is not enough ,but I think my result has problem, compared to RANS result and experiment data.

my comparetion is along AB line. in the weak region behind building ,The LES result is good ,bu why it is not good far from building ? my positon is near ground ,if it is affected by wall function ? or by my symmetry side boundary?

Hi panda60,
why are you using both the VanDriest damping and wall functions ?
