That class of methods for treating turbulence gathered under the banner of large eddy simulation is poised to enter mainstream engineering practice. There is a growing body of evidence that such methods offer a significant stretch in industrial capability over solely Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS)-based modelling. A key enabling development will be the adaptation of innovative processor architectures, resulting from the huge investment in the gaming industry, to engineering analysis…

For LES to make most rapid industrial impact, pragmatic hybrid use of LES, implicit LES and RANS elements will probably be needed, and highly industrial sector model parametrizations will be required with clear thought on the key target design parameters.

Massively Parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics With Large Eddy Simulation in Complex Geometries
The combination of automatic hexahedral meshing with a spectral element code for incompressible and low-Mach-number flows is tested, called Nek5000, that has scaled to P >262,000 cores and sustains >70% parallel efficiency with only ≈7000 points/core.
Incorporating computational fluid dynamics code development into an undergraduate engineering course
What must be taught to add computer coding to what usually is a well-protected, though capable of being compiled and linked, core computer code so that the complexity of interacting is lessened and better understood is outlined.

Advances in Hybrid RANS-LES Modelling
The contributions, lessons, and trends found in the DESider Symposium Proceedings are discussed. Three broad classifications can be made among the papers: • The first is between studies which widen
Detached-Eddy Simulation
This review discusses compelling examples, noting the visual and quantitative success of DES and its principal weakness is its response to ambiguous grids, in which the wall-parallel grid spacing is of the order of the boundary-layer thickness.
Towards Understanding LES and DES for Industrial Aeroacoustic Predictions
Computational Aeroacoustics combines the multi-disciplines of Computational Fluid Dynamics and Computational Acoustics. The former solves the time-dependant Navier-Stokes equations but relies on
