 June 25, 2007, 05:58 Re: LES questions #3 Shuo Guest   Posts: n/a WHat are the advantages of using finite volume over finite difference for LES?

 June 25, 2007, 13:17 Re: LES questions #4 phil Guest   Posts: n/a - Finite difference can use more accurate schemes (for spatial discretization). For LES this advantage is very important for academics research. If you can reduce significantly numerical error cause by discretization , you can most understand the effect of LES model. -Finite volume can shape more sophisticated body. It's a very important advantage in the case of industrial research. In the two case, you can use LES. But like everything, there are 'no magic solution'. In the two cases, you pay a price in order to have something.

 June 27, 2007, 09:02 Re: LES questions #7 Praveen. C Guest   Posts: n/a The difference is really between structured and unstructured grids. You can have very accurate finite volume schemes on structured grids but the same is not possible with unstructured grids.

 June 27, 2007, 10:34 Re: LES questions #9 phil Guest   Posts: n/a You can't have the same accurate with finite volume. For example, you can't try a finite volume with the same accurate and cost than high order ompact schemes. And when you want to study some LES model or very special turbulence cases, finite volume is not the right way ! But you're right, -the- difference is really between structured and unstructured grids. But, really can you can explain that is the difference between finite volume and finite element in the case ?
