HiFi-TURB-DLR rounded step
The HiFi-TURB-DLR rounded step test case is designed to investigate the effect of an adverse pressure gradient on a turbulent boundary layer. The problem considers the flow over a 2D planar rounded step, see Fig. 1, and is inspired by the axisymmetric rounded step proposed by Disotell and Rumsey, see Disotell et al., Disotell et al. (2017) and Alaya et al. (2021).
This test case concerns an under-resolved Direct Numerical Simulation (uDNS) using the high-order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) code MIGALE, see Bassi et al. (2016). The code couples the DG space discretization with a high-order implicit time integration, which relies on Rosenbrock schemes.
The primary objective of this contribution is to provide a rich database of flow and turbulence statistics as a reference target for verification and validation of RANS models (see UFR 3-36 Test Case).
The provided statistical quantities in the database are:
- mean pressure and velocity components;
- Reynolds stress components;
- Taylor microscale;
- Kolmogorov length and time scales;
As the solver discretizes the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, density and temperature fields, as well their gradients, have been collected during the computational campaign. However, since the flow regime is incompressible (), these fields are a side product of this contribution and thus are not reported.
