 June 10, 2003, 11:35 what is DNS ? #1 Phillip Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I've just started working in CFD. Could anyone help me understand DNS ? I've few notions: 1. DNS is computationally time consuming 2. We need a very fine grid to carry out DNS (how much fine my grid should be) 3. I can get 1/7th power law profile using DNS of pipe flow for Re>4000 Are my notions correct ? Thanksa lot

 June 11, 2003, 03:33 what is DNS ? #2 Mahibooswami Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, DNS means directly solving the equations without any models, I mean if u consider RANS , here we are solving the averaged navier stokes equations , in LES, we are separating the flow in to tow parts one large eddy and another one is dissipated K.E , which occurs due to viscocity and this will be very fine scale. we are ressolving the large eddy and modeling small scales using smagorinsky or Germano dynamic model. where as in DNS, we are not manipulating NS equations , we are solving i,e we ressolving fine as well as large eddies,,if we want to ressolve both the scales(larger and smaller), our grid should be very fine to capture small dissipated scales(kolmogorov scales),,u can refer any CFD book, for the formulae to calculating kolomogorov scale.. all the best

 June 16, 2003, 09:44 Re: what is DNS ? #6 Abhinav Guest   Posts: n/a I wonder most DNS codes using pseudospectral method use roughly 45-60 Chebyshev points in cross stream direction and around 32 Fourier points in stremwise and spanwise directions. Can such grid in wavenumber space capture the dissipative scales ? Cheers Abhi

 June 19, 2003, 22:06 Re: what is DNS ? #7 Ali Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, A good review about DNS is the following paper and its references: Moin, P., and Mahesh, K., DIRECT NUMERICAL SIMULATION: A Tool in Turbulence Research, Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics, Volume 30, Page 539, Jan 1998. About Kolmogorov scales, you can find it in any textbook for Turbulence, for exapmle: 1) Wilcox, D.C., Turbulence modeling for CFD, DCW Ind., 1993. 2) Chen, C.J., and Jaw, S.Y., Fundamentals of Turbulence Modeling, Taylor & francis, 1998. 3) Pope, S.B., Turbulent flows, Cambridge University Press, 2000.
