Blesbois O, Chernyshenko SI, 2011, Generalised optimal perturbation approach applied to drag reduction by wall oscillations in turbulent flows

© 2011 CURRAN-CONFERENCE. All rights reserved. Drag reduction by wall oscillations in turbulent flows has recently been shown to be a promising technique. The reduction of the near wall streaks amplitude is known to play a significant role in the drag reduction mechanism. To gain a better understanding of the effect of wall oscillations on the streaks, the Generalised Optimal Perturbation (GOP) approach, based on the linearised Navier-Stokes equation, is used. Resemblance between drag and certain quantities arising in the GOP context is observed. It is found that for harmonic wall oscillations the streaks have an approximately constant angle to the main flow direction, with a jump in sign twice in the period. The mechanism of this phenomenon is clarified. The results are in a reasonable agreement with direct numerical simulations.

CONFERENCE PAPER

Goulart PJ, Chernyshenko SI, 2010, Stability analysis of fluid flows using sum-of-squares, Pages: 2971-2976

In this paper we present a new method for assessing the stability of finite-dimensional approximations to the Navier-Stokes equation for fluid flows. Approximations to the Navier-Stokes equation typically take the form of a set of linear ODEs with an additional bilinear term that conserves the total energy of the system state. We suggest a structured method for generating Lyapunov functions using sum-of-squares optimization that exploits this energy conservation property. We provide a numerical example demonstrating the use of this technique to assess the stability of a model of a shear flow between infinite parallel plates. © 2010 AACC.

Booker C, Zhang X, Chernyshenko S, 2009, Large-scale source term modeling of vortex generation, ISSN: 1048-5953

Methods of modeling vortex generation in computational fluid dynamics without mesh-ing the vortex generating device have been investigated. This is done by adding source terms to the governing equations to create vortices. Previous work in this area has focused on boundary layer control. This study looks at larger scale applications, such as using vortices for force enhancement. Two different approaches are tested. One is to model vortex generators directly, for which an existing method that replaces the force exerted on the fluid by a vortex generator with a source term is used. Also of this type, a simple im-mersed boundary method is used for comparison. The other approach uses source terms to create specified vortex velocity profiles. A method to add a continuous three-dimensional velocity is formulated and implemented in three ways; explicit calculation of the required forces from the Navier-Stokes equations, direct forcing (setting the velocity as boundary conditions), and penalty-type feedback forcing. After basic testing, all methods are applied in a practical engineering case using a commercial solver. Copyright © 2009 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.

CONFERENCE PAPER

Chernyshenko SI, Bondarenko ME, 2008, Master-modes in 3D turbulent channel flow, arXiv:0809.2896 [physics.flu-dyn]

Turbulent flow fields can be expanded into a series in a set of basic functions. The terms of such series are often called modes. A master- (or determining) mode set is a subset of these modes, the time history of which uniquely determines the time history of the entire turbulent flow provided that this flow is developed. In the present work the existence of the master-mode-set is demonstrated numerically for turbulent channel flow. The minimal size of a master-mode set and the rate of the process of the recovery of the entire flow from the master-mode set history are estimated. The velocity field corresponding to the minimal master-mode set is found to be a good approximation for mean velocity in the entire flow field. Mean characteristics involving velocity derivatives deviate in a very close vicinity to the wall, while master-mode two-point correlations exhibit unrealistic oscillations. This can be improved by using a larger than minimal master-mode set. The near-wall streaks are found to be contained in the velocity field corresponding to the minimal master-mode set, and the same is true at least for the large-scale part of the longitudinal vorticity structure. A database containing the time history of a master-mode set is demonstrated to be an efficient tool for investigating rare events in turbulent flows. In particular, a travelling-wave-like object was identified on the basis of the analysis of the database. Two master-mode-set databases of the time history of a turbulent channel flow were made available online. The services provided include the facility for the code uploaded by a user to be run on the server with an access to the data.

Using Chebychev-Fourier representation of Direct Numerical Simulation solution we determine the so-called master modes, that is those modes which contain all essential information about the flow. The method used by E. Olson and E.S. Titi for 2D case is applied for 3D turbulent channel flow (i.e. Determining modes for continuous data assimilation in 2D turbulence, Journal of Statistical Physics, 113 (2003), 799-840). Initial simulation performed with 32786 Chebychev-Fourier modes using a spatial domain with streamwise and spanwise periods of 1.6 π revealed that the number of master-modes for Reτ=85 is N≤650. Number of master-modes is not the same as, but may be related to, the fractal dimension of the attractor. For the comparison, L. Keefe, J. Kim and P. Moin estimated the fractal dimension as Dλ=780 for Reτ=80. (i.e. The dimension of attractors underlying periodic turbulent Poiseuille flow, J. Fluid Mech (1992), vol. 242, pp.1-29). Results for higher Reτ will be obtained, analysed and reported at the conference. In particular we are interested in what organised structures will appear in the master modes

An ideal incompressible fluid flow in the right half-plane periodic in the transverse direction is considered. This flow models that in the outlet duct of an axial compressor in the rotating stall regime. It is a feature of the problem that in the inlet cross-section two velocity components are prescribed while the vorticity distribution is unknown. An explicit solution is found in the form of a series in a small parameter characterizing the deviation of the velocity from a constant value. Numerical results are obtained.

This article aims to review the recent achievements and the state of the art in the high Reynolds number asymptotic theory of steady separated flow past bluff bodies for a general reader specializing in fluid dynamics who is not necessarily familiar with modem asymptotic techniques. A short historical overview is given. The ideas of the mathematical methods used are briefly outlined. Then the general structure of the solution for a plane flow past a bluffbody is described. The physical mechanisms of such a flow are discussed, and quantitative results are given and compared with numerical calculations. Existing extensions of the theory and the latest results for axisymmetric flows are described. In conclusion, the relationship between asymptotic theory and real turbulent flows is discussed. This review article contains 76 references. © 1998 American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
