AB - We begin by investigating the stability, order of accuracy, and dispersionand dissipation characteristics of the extended range of energy stable fluxreconstruction (E-ESFR) schemes in the context of implicit large eddy simulation(ILES). We proceed to demonstrate that subsets of the E-ESFR schemesare more stable than collocation nodal discontinuous Galerkin methods recoveredwith the flux reconstruction approach (FRDG) for marginally-resolvedILES simulations of the Taylor-Green vortex. These schemes are shown tohave reduced dissipation and dispersion errors relative to FRDG schemes ofthe same polynomial degree and, simultaneously, have increased CourantFriedrichs-Lewy(CFL) limits. Finally, we simulate turbulent flow over anSD7003 aerofoil using two of the most stable E-ESFR schemes identifiedby the aforementioned Taylor-Green vortex experiments. Results demonstratethat subsets of E-ESFR schemes appear more stable than the commonlyused FRDG method, have increased CFL limits, and are suitable for ILES ofcomplex turbulent flows on unstructured grids.
