Parametric study of flow around rectangular prisms using LES

A parametric study concerning the flow around rectangular prisms of different aspect ratios (1 : 1, 1 : 1.5, 1 : 2, 1 : 3, 1 : 4) is conducted numerically at a Reynolds number of 105. The Navier—Stokes equations in the large eddy simulation (LES) framework are solved using a finite volume method. The Smagorinsky closure model is used for representing the… CONTINUE READING
