Simulation numérique pour l'aérothermique avec des modèles sous-maille

Abstract : Large-Eddy simulations of the turbulent channel flow ( representative case of internal flows in equilibrium ) and the turbulent flow past a backward-facing step ( representative case of separated flows ) have been performed to study the heat transfer for a quasi-incompressible flow. The Boussinesq equations are solved on a non-staggered grid with the use of an hybrid finite difference / finite element scheme which prevents wiggles. The time integration is performed with an Adams/Bashforth scheme and a backward differenciation formulae. In order to maintain a constant bulk velocity and bulk temperature in the turbulent channel flow simulation, a pressure gradient and a temperature source term, both varying in time, are added to the equations. In order to obtain the turbulent unsteady dynamical and thermal fields at the inflow of the backward-facing step, an original coupling is carried out with a previous turbulent channel flow simulation. Several self-adaptative models for the Subgrid-Scale Reynolds tensor are presented. For the Subgrid-Scale heat flux, two new Subgrid-Scale models and several different classical models are described. All these Subgrid-Scale models are tested in a turbulent channel flow and compared with direct simulation. For the turbulent flow past a backward-facing step, only one Subgrig-Scale model has been used for the Subgrid-Scale Reynolds tensor and heat flux.
