A high-fidelity solver for turbulent compressible flows on unstructured meshes

  title={A high-fidelity solver for turbulent compressible flows on unstructured meshes},
  author={Davide Modesti and Sergio Pirozzoli},
  journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics},
We develop a high-fidelity numerical solver for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, with the main aim of highlighting the predictive capabilities of low-diffusive numerics for flows in complex geometries. The space discretization of the convective terms in the Navier-Stokes equations relies on a robust energy-preserving numerical flux, and numerical diffusion inherited from the AUSM scheme is added limited to the vicinity of shock waves, or wherever spurious numerical oscillations are…

SUNSTAR Simulation of UNSteady Turbulent flows for the AeRospace industry

The SUNSTAR project aims at improving the robustness and testing the predictive accuracy of an in-house CFD software for the simulation and the analysis of turbulent high-speed flows relevant for the



Numerical Methods for High-Speed Flows

We review numerical methods for direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large-eddy simulation (LES) of turbulent compressible flow in the presence of shock waves. Ideal numerical methods should be

Suitability of upwind-biased finite difference schemes for large-eddy simulation of turbulent flows

We have simulated flow past a circular cylinder at a Reynolds number of 3.9 X 10 3 using a solver that employs an energy-conservative second-order central difference scheme for spatial

Turbulent supersonic channel flow

The effects of compressibility are studied in low Reynolds number turbulent supersonic channel flow via a direct numerical simulation. A pressure-velocity-entropy formulation of the compressible

Large-Eddy Simulation of Reacting Turbulent Flows in Complex Geometries

Large-eddy simulation (LES) has traditionally been restricted to fairly simple geometries. This paper discusses LES of reacting flows in geometries as complex as commercial gas turbine engine
