High performance computation for direct numerical and large eddy simulation
AbstractThis paper focusses on high order compact schemes for direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large eddy simulation (LES) for flow separation, transition, tip vortex, and flow control. We discuss the fundamental issues of high quality grid generation, high order schemes for curvilinear coordinates, the CFL condition for complex geometry, and high-order weighted compact schemes for shock capturing and shock-vortex interaction. The computation examples include DNS for K-type and H-type transition, DNS for flow separation and transition around an airfoil with attack angle, control of flow separation by using pulsed jets, and LES simulation for a tip vortex behind the juncture of a wing and flat plate. Computations also show the almost linear growth in efficiency obtained using multiple processors.
