Turbulence is one of the last remaining challenges in the 
simulation of fluid flows. Although RANS (Reynolds-Averaged 
Navier Stokes) turbulence models are still very widely 
used, these approaches are being slowly supplanted by Large 
Eddy Simulation (LES). However, LES is prohibitively 
expensive for the industrial simulation of wall-bounded 
flows, especially at high Reynolds number. As a result, a 
family of Hybrid RANS-LES techniques, of which Detached 
Eddy Simulation (DES) is one member, are being increasingly 
used for the modelling of flow in and around complex 

Due to the current lack of readily-available expert 
guidance on the application of Hybrid RANS-LES techniques, 
and the emergence of DES as the tool of the trade, ERCOFTAC 
has drawn upon its worldwide network of academic and 
industrial experts to provide a training course aimed at an 
industrial CFD audience and relevant to a wide range of 
industry sectors including: Aerospace, automotive, chemical 
and process, civil and built environment, power generation 
and the wider engineering community. Specifically, this 
course aims to provide:

    An overview of turbulence modelling.  
    A firm foundation in the theory and ideas underlying, 
RANS, LES and Hybrid RANS-LES techniques.  
    Recommendation and guidance for the appropriate and 
effective application of Hybrid RANS-LES. Examples from 
real-world engineering simulations, using the DES class of
