- Become familiar with
the filtering concept in a turbulent flow and
how the idea of scale separation forms the basis
- Gain familiarity with the
filtered forms of the conservation equations (e.g., mass,
momentum, turbulent kinetic energy), how they are derived
and how the different terms in the equations can be
- Obtain a basic working
knowledge of common subgrid-scale (SGS) parameterizations
used in LES of turbulent flows.
- Understand how to carry out a
priori analysis of SGS models from
experimental and Direct
(DNS) data sets.
- Understand common techniques
for a posteriori
evaluation of SGS models and what conditions are necessary
and sufficient for a 'good' SGS model.
- Become familiar with LES SGS
models and techniques used in specific flow cases of
interest (e.g., isotropic turbulence, high-Reynolds number
boundary layers, turbulent reacting flows, etc.)
