2 B. Frohnapfel, Jordanian German Winter Academy 2006 OVERVIEW  How to solve turbulent flow problems?  Review of Reynolds averaging and the need for turbulence models  Transport equations of the Reynolds stresses  Is turbulence isotropic?  Introduction of the anisotropy invariant map  Introduction of two-point correlation technique  Model formulation of anisotropy invariant turbulence model

3 B. Frohnapfel, Jordanian German Winter Academy 2006  DNS: Direct Numerical Simulation Solves the unsteady Navier-Stokes equations directly.  RANS Model: (Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes Model) Motivation: Engineers are normally interested in knowing just a few quantitative properties of a turbulent flow. Method: Using Reynolds-Averaged form of the Navier-Stokes equations with appropriate turbulence models.  LES: Large Eddy Simulation Motivation:The large scale motions are generally much more energetic than the small scales, and they are the most effective transporters of the conserved properties. Method: Large Scales -> Solve, Small Scales ->Model HOW TO SOLVE THE BASIC EQUATIONS IN TURBULENT FLOWS
