Approximating the larger eddies in fluid motion. III: The Boussinesq model for turbulent fluctuations. (English) Zbl 1078.76553

Summary: In 1877 Boussinesq (and others) put forward the basic analogy between the mixing effects of turbulent fluctuations and molecular diffusion: -·(u ' u ' ) ¯-·ν T (u ¯+u ¯ t ). This assumption lies at the heart of essentially all turbulence models and subgridscale models. By revisiting the original arguments of Boussinesq, Saint-Venant, Kelvin, Reynolds and others, we give three new approximations for the turbulent viscosity coefficient ν T in terms of the mean flow based on approximation for the distribution of kinetic energy in u ' in terms of the mean flow u ¯. We prove existence of weak solutions for the resulting system (NSE plus the proposed subgridscale term). Finite difference implementations of the new eddy viscosity/subgrid-scale model are transparent. We show how it can be implemented in finite element procedures and prove that its action is no larger than that of the popular Smagorinski-subgrid-scale model.
