DES Applied to an Isolated Synthetic Jet Flow
DES solutions for an isolated synthetic jet flow are presented. A cubic-root filter with continuous eddy viscosity variation at the RANS-LES switching point is introduced. The intention is to explore the effects of unstructured grids for such a filtering strategy. Dissipation controlled Roe’s scheme is applied and dynamic grid techniques are employed to implement the periodically moving diaphragm. The results obtained are compared with the experiments and a previous study using structured grids. No inferiority is observed for the current unstructured grid result in comparison with the structured ones from the previous study.
