Large eddy simulation of turbulent cavitating flows

  title={Large eddy simulation of turbulent cavitating flows},
  author={A Gnanaskandan and Krishnan Mahesh},
Large Eddy Simulation is employed to study two turbulent cavitating flows: over a cylinder and a wedge. A homogeneous mixture model is used to treat the mixture of water and water vapor as a compressible fluid. The governing equations are solved using a novel predictor– corrector method. The subgrid terms are modeled using the Dynamic Smagorinsky model. Cavitating flow over a cylinder at Reynolds number (Re) = 3900 and cavitation number (σ) = 1.0 is simulated and the wake characteristics are… CONTINUE READING
