Recently, a number of studies have indicated that Large Eddy Simulation (LES) models are fairly insensitive to the adopted Subgrid Scale (SGS) models. In order to study this and to gain further insight into LES, simulations of forced and decaying homogeneous isotropic turbulence have been performed for Taylor Re numbers between 35 and 248 using various SGS models, representative of the contemporary state of the art. The predictive capability of the LES concept is analyzed by comparison with DNS…

The objective of this work is to analyze the effect of subgrid modeling in LES of turbulent coaxial jets, and results show that this type of comparative analysis is of fundamental importance to obtain reliable results when addressing new problems.
Subgrid-scale modeling and implicit numerical dissipation in DG-based Large-Eddy Simulation
Over the past few years, high-order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods for Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) have emerged as a promising approach to solve complex turbulent flows. However, despite the

Scale-Invariance and Turbulence Models for Large-Eddy Simulation
▪ Abstract Relationships between small and large scales of motion in turbulent flows are of much interest in large-eddy simulation of turbulence, in which small scales are not explicitly resolved and

The subgrid-scale (SGS) model in a large-eddy simulation (LES) operates on a range of scales which is marginally resolved by discretization schemes. Accordingly, the discretization scheme and the

The problem of subgrid modelling, that is, of representing energy transfers from large to small eddies in terms of the large eddies only, must arise in any large eddy simulation, whether the

One major drawback of the eddy viscosity subgrid‐scale stress models used in large‐eddy simulations is their inability to represent correctly with a single universal constant different turbulent

In a previous paper, Germano, et al. (1991) proposed a method for computing coefficients of subgrid-scale eddy viscosity models as a function of space and time. This procedure has the distinct
