25
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February SP-2004 (Stanford) Wake Velocity Profiles Moreau et al, CTR Summer Program 2004 Two coarse grids in any of the new simulations to yield good wake X-wire

26
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February SP-2004 (Stanford) Flow field Results DES gives unrealistic flow field (over production of k at LE) Grids for IB-LES need to re-visited for better TE prediction All over estimate the pressure fluctuations at low frequencies

27
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February STAR-CD LES Simulations ( ) Moreau et al, AIAA PISO algorithm for time discretization Central differencing and upwind MARS scheme (no stable solution could be obtained even in 2D with CDS for all grid topologies tested). To keep a CFL number below 1 throughout the computational domain, a maximum allowable time step t = s is used. 5 to 10 time units run to eliminate the transient and collect reliable statistics (based on the free stream velocity of 16 m/s). Smagorinsky sub-grid scale (SGS) model together with a van Driest near-wall damping and WALE SGS are used. k- based DES is selected. Evaluation of different numerical Schemes Evaluation of different SGS models Re-assessment of the DES model with a different code

28
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February Final MARS LES Grid Topology (2005) Zoom LE Zoom TE 1,115,000 cells Similar grid 1-2 coarsening as DES with Fluent 6.1 Only 5% chord span Good near-surface resolution: x + ≤ 20 ; y + ≤ 1 ; z + ≤ 10

29
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February MARS LES Instantaneous Velocity Field Stanford Reference LES STAR-CD MARS LES Similar small structures created after separation convected downstream towards the trailing edge Larger flow separation at the leading edge in MARS LES. More coherent structures at the trailing edge in MARS LES.

30
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February MARS LES Wall Pressure Coefficient Qualitative agreement on the laminar separation bubble (good level of pressure plateau but too large extent of the bubble, 11.2% instead of 3.7%) First simulation to predict the positive pressure gradient up to mid-chord.

31
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February MARS LES Wake Velocity Profiles Excellent agreement in the near wake for the MARS LES Too large diffusion and deflection of the wake in the DES.

33
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February MARS Fine Scale Structures Turbulent re-attach. Turbulent T.E. Separation Laminar L.E. separation Iso-values of normalized Q colored by the streamwise vorticity Larger structures than reference LES

34
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February DES Simulation Issue Velocity Field Sub-grid Turbulent Viscosity Well attached flow field all the way to the trailing edge as in RANS simulations Short laminar separation bubble is not captured Transition occurs at the stagnation point (local turbulent kinetic energy overproduction in k- model).

35
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February Conclusions Summer 2005 The STAR-CD MARS LES reproduces all qualitative features of the flow encountered in the ECL experiment and simulated in the reference LES (Wang et al, Stanford 2004). A short laminar separation bubble is formed, reattaches and sheds small vortices that are convected towards the trailing edge. Evolution of the boundary layer seems to be well captured, especially the experimental positive pressure gradient up to mid-chord. Yet the laminar separation bubble is too wide and the wall pressure fluctuations are damped at the trailing edge (most likely due to MARS upwind scheme). No use for self-noise prediction. All DES found inadequate for this attached flow (transitional airfoil with a short laminar bubble). Further grid optimization required to remove instabilities with Central Differencing Scheme (CDS).

36
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February Final CDS LES Grid Topology (2006) 690,000 cells 3-4 grid coarsening in all directions 10% chord span Good near-surface resolution: x + ~ 2.5 ; y + ~ 2 ; z + ~ coarsening Stability of CD scheme without significant oscillations Only a small jump in the turbulent viscosity D.

37
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February CDS LES Wall Pressure Coefficient Same qualitative agreement on the laminar separation bubble No significant differences between the two SGS models

38
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February CDS LES Wake Velocity Profiles Same excellent agreement in the near wake for the CDS-LES No significant differences between the two SGS models

39
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February CDS LES Wall Pressure Spectra Good overall predicition with the CD SGS model has only a moderate effect on spectra

40
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February Iso-values of normalized Q colored by the streamwise vorticity t = 0.07 s t = 0.25 s CDS Fine Scale Structures Smaller structures than with MARS scheme

41
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February SP-2006 (Stanford) Unstructured LES Excellent agreement with both structured LES and experimental data <4% difference

42
Property of Valeo – Duplication prohibited February Conclusions Summer 2006 The STAR-CD CDS LES improves the MARS LES significantly (over dissipative in the TE region) and compares favorably with the ECL experiment and the reference LES (Wang et al, Stanford 2004). A regular grid with smooth jumps is required if coarsening is to be used to yield numerical stability and limited oscillations. (3-4) coarsening as suggested by Laurence seems to provide the best compromise and still yield reasonable grid sizes (< 1 Million nodes). Different SGS models do not yield significant differences Unstructured LES solver (CDP, Stanford) with the same numerical schemes and SGS as the reference structured LES yields similar results. But all LES still show weaknesses in the laminar flow recirculation and especially in the transition process (we have as many bubble sizes as LES) Yet in the trailing edge region, similar statistics are achieved and consequently same broadband noise prediction
