 December 11, 2014, 07:34 Solving after mapping results #1 New Member   Simone Join Date: Dec 2014 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 5 Hello everybody, I know that this argument has been already discussed, but I can't find the answer I'm searching for. I think the problem is general so it will probably be very interesting. I run a steady-state RANS simulation (simpleFoam) and I mapped the results on a sub-domain with a finer mesh in order to run a transient DES simulation (pimpleFoam). The question is: after I mapped the results on the sub-domain, how can I run the new simulation? I mean, which are the BC types I need to put on the boundary of the sub-domain? Thanks for the answers, Simone

Sine your k file in RAS is different from k file in DES (incompressible LES case). k in RAS refers to turbulent intensity and in LES cases refers to subgrid scale kinetic energy. The order of magnitude of these values are completely different. Moreover, you need to apply some changes in your U file. The values obtained from RAS simulation are your mean values , you need to define fluctuation scale and values. Your velocity B.C. for inflow streams should be sth like this: Code: FUEL { type turbulentInlet; referenceField nonuniform List 252 ( (-0.296506256 142.798641 0.146544894) ); fluctuationScale (0.03 0.1 0.03); //Define the highest value in the stream orientation value uniform (0 0 0) } Best, Bobi

I did a similar simulation with CFD++ and I wanted to know if it is possible even with OF. I studied the aeroacoustics of a car using CFD++. Firstly I run a RANS simulation in the whole domain and then I used the obtained results to initialize a transient DES simulation only on a sub-domain near the car-mirror. To do this I put as BC on the whole external sud-domain boundary a particular condition, called NLAS outer boundary. I don't know where the inlet and the outlet are in the sub-domain. Probably the most matching BC is to consider all the boundary as an opening.

However, I think you should have an outlet for your air stream traversing beside the car mirror. I don't think that you could define inflow streams in your case without defining any outflow. Best, Bobi
