This course covers a range of topics including:
Turbulence models based on Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations are the most common and practical approaches for turbulence simulation. Unfortunately, there is no single universally accepted turbulence model that works for all flows and all regimes. Therefore, users have to use engineering judgment to choose from a number of different alternatives since the accuracy and effectiveness of each model varies depending on the application. This course provides the attendees with basic understanding of complexities in turbulence simulation and introduces them to most commonly used turbulence models with their advantages and limitations.
Strong effort is made for the course to be CFD software neutral. However, examples from some of the more well-known and popular software will be used throughout the sessions.
|CFDkn3||State the Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes equations.|
|CFDkn6||List in order of complexity the range of turbulence models for RANS modelling approaches.|
|CFDco4||Explain why turbulence models are required and classify the range of models currently available.|
|CFDco5b||Review the available turbulence models for RANS approaches and discuss their strengths, weaknesses and their applicability to a range of different flow conditions.|
|CFDco8||Explain the difference between RANS and LES turbulence modelling approaches.|
