Direct numerical simulation of supersonic turbulent flows over rough surfaces

Abstract We perform direct numerical simulation of supersonic turbulent channel flow over cubical roughness elements, spanning bulk Mach numbers $M_b=0.3$–$4$, both in the transitional and fully

Influence of corner angle in streamwise supersonic corner flow

We use the Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) equations with a full Reynolds stress model (RSM) to study the effect of the corner angle in supersonic corner flow. RANS data are compared to

Gaseous slip flow affected by inclined low magnetic field using second‐order boundary conditions

In this study, asymptotic solutions of a near continuum gaseous slip flow in two‐dimensional rectangular microchannels under the effect of electromagnetic force are presented. An inclined magnetic

Dynamics of coherent structures in turbulent square duct flow

The underlying flow dynamics in a turbulent flow in a periodic square duct is investigated by using the snapshot Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) technique. In this study, the friction Reynolds

Turbulence and secondary motions in square duct flow

We study turbulent flows in pressure-driven ducts with square cross-section through direct numerical simulation in a wide enough range of Reynolds number to reach flow conditions which are

A numerical study of turbulent supersonic isothermal-wall channel flow

A study of compressible supersonic turbulent flow in a plane channel with isothermal walls has been performed using direct numerical simulation. Mach numbers, based on the bulk velocity and sound

On the role of secondary motions in turbulent square duct flow

We use a direct numerical simulations (DNS) database for turbulent flow in a square duct up to bulk Reynolds number $Re_{b}=40\,000$ to quantitatively analyse the role of secondary motions on the

Numerical simulation of low-Reynolds-number turbulent flow through a straight square duct

The mean flow and turbulent statistics obtained from the numerical simulation of the fully developed turbulent flow through a straight duct of square cross-section are reported. The Reynolds number

Compressible turbulent channel and pipe flow: similarities and differences

Direct numerical simulation (DNS) is used to explore similarities and differences between fully developed supersonic turbulent plane channel and axisymmetric non-swirling pipe flow bounded by

Direct Numerical Simulation of Turbulent Pipe Flow at Moderately High Reynolds Numbers

Fully resolved direct numerical simulations (DNSs) have been performed with a high-order spectral element method to study the flow of an incompressible viscous fluid in a smooth circular pipe of

Reynolds number dependence of mean flow structure in square duct turbulence

We have performed direct numerical simulations of turbulent flows in a square duct considering a range of Reynolds numbers spanning from a marginal state up to fully developed turbulent states at low

Mean velocity scaling for compressible wall turbulence with heat transfer

The current state-of-the-art in accounting for mean property variations in compressible turbulent wall-bounded flows is the Van Driest transformation, which is inaccurate for non-adiabatic walls. An

Large-eddy simulations of a compressible turbulent square duct flow at low Mach number are described. First, we consider the isothermal case with all the walls at the same temperature: good agreement

An Efficient Semi-implicit Solver for Direct Numerical Simulation of Compressible Flows at All Speeds

We develop a semi-implicit algorithm for time-accurate simulation of compressible shock-free flows, with special reference to wall-bounded flows. The method is based on partial linearization of the
