An approximate deconvolution model for large-eddy simulation with application to incompressible wall-bounded flows. (English) Zbl 1184.76530

Summary: The approximate deconvolution model (ADM) for the large-eddy simulation of incompressible flows is detailed and applied to turbulent channel flow. With this approach an approximation of the unfiltered solution is obtained by repeated filtering. Given a good approximation of the unfiltered solution, the nonlinear terms of the filtered Navier-Stokes equations can be computed directly. The effect of nonrepresented scales is modeled by a relaxation regularization involving a secondary filter operation. Large-eddy simulations are performed for incompressible channel flow at Reynolds numbers based on the friction velocity and the channel half-width of \(Re_\tau = 180\) and \(Re_\tau= 590\). Both simulations compare well with direct numerical simulation (DNS) data and show a significant improvement over results obtained with classical subgrid scale models such as the standard or the dynamic Smagorinsky model. The computational cost of ADM is lower than that of dynamic models or the velocity estimation model.
