After a few days of debugging the wall function method I actually have some results to show for it!
The plot below shows the base simulation. Note that on the run up the profile is turbulent but following the acceleration and separation, the profile re-laminarises.
Adding in the wall function approach allows the boundary layer to reattach whilst retaining its turbulence as shown below.
The following set of (2D) simulations are being run:
rs01-02-01: Base simulation. 2D RANS, No IBM, No WF, No TI DONE
rs01-02-04: Wall Functions. 2D RANS, No IBM, With WF, No TI
rs01-02-05: Immersed Boundary Method. 2D RANS, With IBM, No WF, No TI
rs01-02-06: Detached Eddy Simulation. 2D DES, No IBM, No WF, No TI
These should take the weekend to run so I’ll have some results to compare on Monday then I can set the 3D simulations running. (Based on the run times of these 2D sims)
Just realized that rs01-02-04 was running using a new simulation each time so hasn’t really moved on any further. Will need to re-run.
