Default LES in Turbulence

Hi Friends

These days I'm studing the Large Eddy simulations for Turbulence. Why we want to introduce the filtered velocity for LES? and why we filtered Navier-Stokes equation for the LES?

Thank you

In LES, you must need to use a filter (there are some different types of filters in literature) to seperate large eddies which you will simulate directly from the small eddies which you will model.

Just think a filter is like a net, using this you will catch big fishes (wavenumber < cut off wavenumber) and drop small fishes (wavenumber > cut off wavenumber).

Hope this helps.
