# A posteriori tests of subgrid-scale models in an isothermal turbulent channel flow

@article{Dupuy2019APT, title={A posteriori tests of subgrid-scale models in an isothermal turbulent channel flow}, author={Dorian Dupuy and Adrien Toutant and Françoise Bataille}, journal={Physics of Fluids}, year={2019} }

This paper studies the large-eddy simulation (LES) of isothermal turbulent channel flows. We investigate zero-equation algebraic models without wall function or wall model: functional models, structural models and mixed models. In addition to models from the literature, new models are proposed and their relevance is examined. Dynamic versions of each type of model are also analysed. The performance of the subgrid-scale models is assessed using the same finite difference numerical method and…
