A generalized thermal/dynamic wall function: Part 3

Posted October 17, 2016 at 11:25 by sbaffini (NuTBox)
Updated December 21, 2016 at 10:06 by sbaffini

In this post i summarize the initial problem and the procedure to determine the wall function value (i.e., the solution) for given y^+,F_T^+,Pr and Pr_t.

We looked for a solution T^+\left(y^+,F_T^+,Pr,Pr_t\right) to the problem:

\frac{dT^+}{dy^+}=\frac{Pr\left(1+F_T^+y^+\right)}{\left[1+\left(\frac{Pr}{Pr_t}\right)\left(\frac{\mu_t}{\mu}\right)\right]}

with:

\frac{\mu_t}{\mu}=\frac{\left(ky^+\right)^3}{\left(ky^+\right)^2+\left(ka_0\right)^3-\left(ka_0\right)^2}...

A generalized thermal/dynamic wall function: Part 2

In the first part of this post we left with the problem of computing the following integral:

f^+\left(y^+,\frac{Pr}{Pr_t}\right)=\int_0^{y+}{\frac{1}{\left[1+\left(\frac{Pr}{Pr_t}\right)\left(\frac{\mu_t}{\mu}\right)\right]}dz^+}

with:

\frac{\mu_t}{\mu}\left(y^+,a,k\right)=\frac{\left(ky^+\right)^3}{\left(ky^+\right)^2+\left(ka\right)^3-\left(ka\right)^2}

I added all the explicit functional dependencies here because we know f^+\left(y^+,1\right)...

A generalized thermal/dynamic wall function: Part 1

In a previous post i wrote about an extension of the Reichardt law of the wall to pressure gradient effects. That was derived by assuming the Reichardt profile as a solution for the case without pressure gradient and using integration by parts. In particular, given the the Reichardt function (k is the Von Karman constant):

f^+\left(y^+\right) = \frac{1}{k}\log\left(1+ky^+\right) +A\left(1-e^{-\frac{y^+}{B}}-\frac{y^+}{B}e^{-\frac{y^+}{C}}\right)

A semi-analytical extension of the Reichardt wall law to pressure gradient effects

Posted April 17, 2015 at 07:40 by sbaffini (NuTBox)
Updated December 21, 2016 at 10:07 by sbaffini

I recently worked on wall functions, especially those based on simplified 1D numerical integration (e.g., http://link.springer.com/chapter/10....-642-14243-7_7) and i found a relatively simple, analytical, formulation that takes into account pressure gradient effects.

In practice, this is an extension of the Reichardt wall law to pressure gradient effects.

It is semi-analytical because it takes as assumption that the base Reichardt law is an exact solution of the...

Ph.D. Thesis on LES

Posted May 1, 2014 at 12:24 by sbaffini (NuTBox)
Updated December 21, 2016 at 10:08 by sbaffini

I recently defended my thesis on Large Eddy Simulation, which is now available at:

http://hdl.handle.net/10589/89603

I won't spend too much words on promoting it, you can read the abstract for this. I just want to say it possibly provides a fresh view on the matter of implicit/explicit filtering, commutation errors and other evergreen topics in LES. As i put a specific effort on this, i also hope that it might work as a not too heavy introduction on LES in general. Finally,...
