Variational multiscale theory of LES turbulence modeling


Conference Paper

© Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2010. We present an LES-type variational multiscale theory of turbulence. Our approach derives completely from the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations and does not employ any ad hoc devices, such as eddy viscosities. We tested the formulation on a turbulent channel flow. In the calculations, we employed quadratic and cubic B-Splines. The numerical results are very good and confirm the viability of the theoretical framework. (This paper is excerpted from Bazilevs et al. [1], which is a much more comprehensive presentation of the theory, algorithms, implementation, and numerical studies. The reader is referred to it for further elaboration and many additional details.).
