Finite element approximations for the stationary large eddy simulation model

Andrzej Warzyński (2010)

Applicationes Mathematicae

Some approximation procedures are presented for the system of equations arising from the large eddy simulation of turbulent flows. Existence of solutions to the approximate problems is proved. Discrete solutions generate a strongly convergent subsequence whose limit is a weak solution of the original problem. To prove the convergence theorem we use Young measures and related tools. We do not limit ourselves to divergence-free functions and our results are in particular valid for finite element approximations...

Impact of the variations of the mixing length in a first order turbulent closure system

Françoise Brossier, Roger Lewandowski (2002)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

This paper is devoted to the study of a turbulent circulation model. Equations are derived from the “Navier-Stokes turbulent kinetic energy” system. Some simplifications are performed but attention is focused on non linearities linked to turbulent eddy viscosity ν t . The mixing length acts as a parameter which controls the turbulent part in ν t . The main theoretical results that we have obtained concern the uniqueness of the solution for bounded eddy viscosities and small values of and its asymptotic...

Influence of waves on Lagrangian acceleration in two-dimensional turbulent flows⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆

Romain Nguyen van yen, Benjamin Kadoch, Vivek Kumar, Benjamin Ménétrier, Marie Farge, Kai Schneider, Diane Douady, Lionel Guez (2011)

ESAIM: Proceedings

The Lagrangian statistics in rotating Saint-Venant turbulence are studied by means of direct numerical simulation using a pseudo-spectral discretization fully resolving, both in time and space, all the inertio-gravity waves present in the system. To understand the influence of waves, three initial conditions are considered, one which is dominated by waves, one which is dominated by vortices, and one which is intermediate between these two extreme...

Mathematical analysis of a spectral hyperviscosity LES model for the simulation of turbulent flows

Jean-Luc Guermond, Serge Prudhomme (2003)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

This paper presents a model based on spectral hyperviscosity for the simulation of 3D turbulent incompressible flows. One particularity of this model is that the hyperviscosity is active only at the short velocity scales, a feature which is reminiscent of Large Eddy Simulation models. We propose a Fourier–Galerkin approximation of the perturbed Navier–Stokes equations and we show that, as the cutoff wavenumber goes to infinity, the solution of the model converges (up to subsequences) to a weak solution...

Numerical analysis of modular regularization methods for the BDF2 time discretization of the Navier-Stokes equations

William Layton, Nathaniel Mays, Monika Neda, Catalin Trenchea (2014)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

We consider an uncoupled, modular regularization algorithm for approximation of the Navier-Stokes equations. The method is: Step 1.1: Advance the NSE one time step, Step 1.1: Regularize to obtain the approximation at the new time level. Previous analysis of this approach has been for specific time stepping methods in Step 1.1 and simple stabilizations in Step 1.1. In this report we extend the mathematical support for uncoupled, modular stabilization to (i) the more complex and better performing...

Numerical modelling of algebraic closure models of oceanic turbulent mixing layers

Anne-Claire Bennis, Tomas Chacón Rebollo, Macarena Gómez Mármol, Roger Lewandowski (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We introduce in this paper some elements for the mathematical and numerical analysis of algebraic turbulence models for oceanic surface mixing layers. In these models the turbulent diffusions are parameterized by means of the gradient Richardson number, that measures the balance between stabilizing buoyancy forces and destabilizing shearing forces. We analyze the existence and linear exponential asymptotic stability of continuous and discrete equilibria states. We also analyze the well-posedness...

On Large Eddy Simulation and Variational Multiscale Methods in the numerical simulation of turbulent incompressible flows

Volker John (2006)

Applications of Mathematics

Numerical simulation of turbulent flows is one of the great challenges in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). In general, Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) is not feasible due to limited computer resources (performance and memory), and the use of a turbulence model becomes necessary. The paper will discuss several aspects of two approaches of turbulent modeling—Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and Variational Multiscale (VMS) models. Topics which will be addressed are the detailed derivation of these...

Recent developments on wall-bounded turbulence.

Javier Jiménez (2007)

RACSAM

The study of turbulence near walls has experienced a renaissance in the last decade, in part because of the availability of high-quality numerical simulations. The viscous and buffer layers over smooth walls are now fairly well understood. They are essentially independent of the outer flow, and there is a family of numerically-exact nonlinear structures that predict well many of the best-known characteristics of the wall layer, such as the intensity and the spectra of the velocity fluctuations,...

Regularity and uniqueness for the stationary large eddy simulation model

Agnieszka Świerczewska (2006)

Applications of Mathematics

In the note we are concerned with higher regularity and uniqueness of solutions to the stationary problem arising from the large eddy simulation of turbulent flows. The system of equations contains a nonlocal nonlinear term, which prevents straightforward application of a difference quotients method. The existence of weak solutions was shown in A. Świerczewska: Large eddy simulation. Existence of stationary solutions to the dynamical model, ZAMM, Z. Angew. Math. Mech. 85 (2005), 593–604 and P....
