LES test filtering
Hi all,

I am doing a simple open channel flow simulation, with shear defined by the log law as the bottom boundary. The domain was descritized with a finite volume staggered grids. When test filtering for the Dynamic LES SGS, particularlly at the bottom boundary for the terms |S|Sij, what boundary conditions do we provide to close the equations?

Re: LES test filtering
If you do not resolve the viscous and buffer layer, you need to be careful with the kind of boundary conditions that you employ for the model. I would suggest you to search for review articles on LES by Moin. He has a detailed discussion on the implementation of the BC.

Re: LES test filtering
Thank you Harish for the reply. Can you provide me with the reference/paper title that you meantioned? thank you in advance.

Re: LES test filtering

thank you very much. I will look into both the papers.
