We develop numerical boundary conditions for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations based on a generalized relaxation approach (GRCBC), which hinges on locally one-dimensional characteristic projection at the computational boundaries, supplemented with available information from the flow exterior. The basic idea is to estimate the amplitude of incoming(More)
Keywords: Turbulent channel flow Finite-difference method Galilean invariance a b s t r a c t We perform finite-difference numerical simulations of turbulent channel flow in stationary and moving reference frames. The flow statistics computed in the stationary frame exhibit significant discrepancies with respect to reference spectral data in terms of energy(More)
