Large-Eddy Simulation of Attached Airfoil Flow
A Large-eddy simulation version of the FLOWer code is introduced to compute attached flow around a quasi three-dimensional airfoil at a Mach number Ma = 0.088, Reynolds number Re = 8 × 105, and an angle of attack of 3.3°. For the treatment of the subgrid-scale stresses the MILES approach is chosen. The visualization of instantaneous flow fields shows the typical flow features such as the streaky structures in the near-wall region to be well resolved and the overall agreement of the computational results with experimental data to be satisfactory.
