Large eddy simulation between dns and rans

LARGE EDDY SIMULATIONBetween DNS and RANS

  • Navier-Stokes math. analysis: impossibly difficult

  • DNS:Fully-resolved NS

    • Cost Re2.75 (for wall-bounded flows  Re3.5)

  • RANS:Time-averaged NS

    • Fast, widely tested, usually accurate “enough”

  • LES:Spatially-filtered NS

    • Cost near wall: Re2.4 ! (at outer layer  Re0.5)

    • Converges to DNS. As in DNS, LES needs:a) averaging b) demanding boundary conditions

    • Suggested were RANS fails: transient, separated flow

Discussion some remarks

DISCUSSIONSome remarks

  • In general very good agreement

  • High turbulence during release phase, only

  • Release overestimated, especially near source.Very difficult for CFD and for turbulence modelling to capture the physical processes next to the source

  • Diffusion underestimated (possible experimental asymmetry?) - improvement with better grid

  • Better agreement is prevented from experimental inaccuracies and numerical discrepancies

Discussion cs affects the results

DISCUSSIONCs affects the results

  • Cs (SGS modelling in general) important near jet

  • At the ceiling, no Cs influence (buoyancy dominates)

  • Non-monotonic behaviour (increasing the Cs gives better results, but up to a limit)

  • Worst Cs by far: 0.2

Further examination c variances for each cs

FURTHER EXAMINATIONC variances for each Cs

C variance = mean (Ci’2)

ICHS 2011, #204 LES MODELLING OF HYDROGEN RELEASE AND ACCUMULATION WITHIN A NON-VENTILATED AMBIENT PRESSURE GARAGE USING THE ADREA-HF CFD CODE


Discussion a critical balance resolved vs sgs turbulence

DISCUSSIONA critical balance: resolved vs. SGS turbulence

  • As we go away from the jet, variance (and resolved turbulence intensity) drops

  • Two mechanisms compete:- Modelled SGS turbulence- Resolved turbulence (generally low if SGS is high)

  • With Cs=0.2, very high artificial viscosity causes more “laminar” flow and lower fluctuations

Discussion rng les seems to be an improvement

DISCUSSIONRNG LES seems to be an improvement

  • RNG LES provides in general better results

  • Improvement towards the right side for sensors both close to the jet (turbulent flow) and far from it (laminar flow). That was not the case by varying Cs

  • Resolved turbulence seems to decrease close to the jet and increase far from it

  • RNG LES is believed to better model the subgrid scales for both the turbulent and the laminar flow

ICHS 2011, #204 LES MODELLING OF HYDROGEN RELEASE AND ACCUMULATION WITHIN A NON-VENTILATED AMBIENT PRESSURE GARAGE USING THE ADREA-HF CFD CODE


Conclusions i acceptable results and physical insight

CONCLUSIONS I Acceptable results and physical insight

  • LES results are good, given all numerical and experimental inaccuracies

  • Overestimation during release phase (close to jet)

  • Underestimation during diffusion phase (and far from jet)

  • Attempt to investigate the balance between resolved and SGS turbulence with parametric analysis of Cs

  • RNG LES seems to behave slightly better in both turbulent and laminar parts of the flow

ICHS 2011, #204 LES MODELLING OF HYDROGEN RELEASE AND ACCUMULATION WITHIN A NON-VENTILATED AMBIENT PRESSURE GARAGE USING THE ADREA-HF CFD CODE


Conclusions ii les is good but not for everyday use

CONCLUSIONS II LES is good, but not for everyday use

  • ADREA-HF has now tested LES in hydrogen release

  • LES can provide peak concentrations (good for flammable mixtures or for calculation of dosages)

  • LES can provide concentration statistics

  • LES many times more expensive than RANS

  • LES is not RANS++
