The generation of initial or inflow synthetic turbulent velocity or scalar fields reproducing statistical characteristics of realistic turbulence is still a challenge. The synthetic eddy method, previously introduced in the context of inflow conditions for large eddy simulations, is based on the assumption that turbulence can be regarded as a superposition of coherent structures. In this paper, a new type of synthetic eddy method is proposed, where the fundamental eddy is constructed by… 


Generation of synthetic turbulent inflow data for large eddy simulation of spatially evolving wall-bounded flows
A method for generating inflow conditions for large eddy simulations (LESs) of spatially developing turbulent boundary layers is presented. It is an adaptation of the synthetic eddy method (SEM) of
A minimal multiscale lagrangian map approach to synthesize non-Gaussian turbulent vector fields
A simple method is proposed to generate synthetic vector fields as surrogates for turbulent velocity fields. The method is based on the minimal Lagrangian map, by which an initial Gaussian field
Using Isotropic Synthetic Fluctuations as Inlet Boundary Conditions for Unsteady Simulations
The paper proposes a method to prescribe synthesized turbulent inlet boundary conditions. When making LES, DES or hybrid LES-RANS a precursor channel DNS is often used. The disadvantage of this
A New Divergence Free Synthetic Eddy Method for the Reproduction of Inlet Flow Conditions for LES
This paper describes a recent development of the Synthetic Eddy Method (SEM) proposed by Jarrin et al. (Int J Heat Fluid Flow 30(3):435–442, 2009) for generation of synthetic turbulence. The present
A priori and a posteriori tests of inflow conditions for large-eddy simulation
Comparisons of inflow conditions for large-eddy simulations of turbulent, wall-bounded flows are carried out. Consistent with previous investigations, it is found that the spectral content of the
Generation of inflow data for inhomogeneous turbulence
Inflow boundary conditions for turbulent plane channel flow are generated by solving evolution equations only for the most energetic eddies. The dynamical systems are derived by Galerkin projecting
