Simulations numériques d'écoulements réactifs massivement décollés par une approche hybride RANS/LES

Abstract : The first numerical simulations of reactive flows on complex configurations were performed using RANS (Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes) approaches. These methods, which are well adapted to attached boundary layer flows and relatively not expensive in computation time, provide only steady results, which may not correctly reproduce reality. For unsteady flow simulations, LES (Large Eddy Simulation) method -- more accurate but more expensive – are increasingly employed. However, these approaches are poorly suited to simulate wall turbulence since they often require a prohibitive meshing effort close to the wall. This PhD thesis is devoted to the development in the CEDRE code (Onera code for the simulation of complex reactive flows) of a hybrid RANS/LES approach, called Delayed Detached Eddy Simulation (DDES) and to its application to massively separated reactive flows. After a step of validation on attached boundary layers, the DDES is applied to the simulation of the inert and reactive flows in a backward facing step combustor (A3C) and compared to the results obtained by RANS and LES approaches, as well as to experimental results. The DDES has then been used to study the dynamics of the separated reactive flow in the ATAC nozzle mounted on the cryotechnic MASCOTTE facility of Onera.
