Hi everyone :-)

I'm curious to know if anyone else has tried or can refer to published results on LES or DES applied in StarCCM+? Apart from the Star-CCM+ documentation, all I can find is CD-Adepco's press release.

Amongst other things, I'm interested/worried about StarCCM+ ability to conserve kinetic energy...

I'm modelling the viscous (possibly turbulent) flow near a pile subjected to ocean waves.

I made some DES but I miss a function to average the result to "filter" the eddys

Hi Maddin

Thanks for your reply! :-) I guess you refer to the fact that Star-CCM+ doesn't provide a scalar function for the area of each side of a cell (except boundary cells)? I don't know if it's a lame question, but what about using the scalar function "Volume" instead?

Did you achieve any further DES results (energy conservation of schemes, grid dependence etc.)?

Don't understand your first part

I did only one unsteady calculation.
Star CD shall have a average function...
I have attached you a picture where you can see what is possible.

Thanks, I'll try to clarify. In your first post, you mentioned that you wanted a function to "average" (I guess, cell volume average?) the "results" (like velocity or kinetic energy?). So I suggested that this possibly could be done by using the "Volume" scalar function (e.g. as input into a user code).

Can you state what scalar quantity your attached picture actually shows? ;-)

Thanks!

Hmm I think we write about the samebut I'm not sure.
I have no "included" function in CCM to average it over some iterations, I can't access to results from a step before.
With external tools I think it's possible, maybe TecPlot or something else.

The picture shows mole fraction

Hi Maddin

I think I understand now. You want to time-average the quantities. Yeah, that would require some external tools, macro or user code..

Thanks for stating what the picture was showing. Did you compare your results to other approaches (e.g. LES)?

I compared it with RANS but only to "show" that you can't compare it without time averaging...

Did you also compare the averaged DES results with the RANS results?

No because I didn't had export data's for each step, I only had made pictures.
In CCM the function is missing for doing it direct.
