The NLEVM provides overall better results but the differences between experiments and computations are still substantial. Moreover, long computing times can be required in the case of complex models such as NLEVM or second-moment closures.

This can also be seen in the results Fig. Concerning the LES approach the main issue is to account for the unresolved small scales. The modelling difficulties, particularly in wall bounded flows, seem to be similar to those encountered in the RANS approach.

Principles of Computational Fluid Dynamics

Additionally, LES requires fully three-dimensional unsteady computations to be performed, though some successful two-dimensional simulations of flows with large separation have also been reported The objective of DNS is to resolve all scales of turbulent motion down to the Kolmogorov eddy.

Adequate resolution must ensure that simulated structures are correct and not numerical artifacts. However, currently DNS for turbulent flows of engineering interest is not feasible due to the lack of adequate computing resources.

In the case of simulations of complex engineering flows the question is also whether one needs to simulate the flow down to the smallest scale. The Kolmogorov spectrum 56 describes how the energy density of turbulent structures decreases rapidly with increasing the wave number, where the Kolmogorov scale is the scale at which the viscous dissipation dominates the inertial flow of the fluid.

The downward transfer of energy from large to small scales is called the turbulent cascade process.

The latter stops at the Kolmogorov scale, where an eddy is so small that it diffuses rapidly. Previous computations, experiments and theoretical analysis see e. Another important issue is that the energy transfer is dominated by local interactions. In other words, the energy does not skip from the large to the small scales, but the energy extraction from a given scale occurs as a result of interactions with eddies no more than an order of magnitude smaller.

The upper plots show the density field at maximum incidence for an oscillating and a ramping NACA- aerofoil see 48 , 49 for more details. The experimental results are from The solutions obtained by the one-equation SA model 52 crosses and a non- linear eddy-viscosity model 47 squares , are compared with the experimental results from 54 ; SIO stands for 'shock-induced oscillations'.

The flow field at different time instants is also shown. The Issue of Numerical Accuracy in Computational Fluid Dynamics 19 The above advocate that accurate simulation of turbulent flows can possibly be performed at scales much larger than the Kolmogorov scale. Independent research studies l - 3 , 21 , have shown that LES of turbulent flows can also be performed on coarse grids without using a SGS model, if high-resolution monotone methods are employed for solving the flow equations.

In this case the numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations is filtered through the numerical scheme and the accuracy of the simulation relies entirely on the dissipation and dispersion properties of the non-linear monotone advection method.

In this direction, particular efforts should be spent in developing and investigating non-linear monotone schemes which would lead to accurate representation of the large energetic scales.

We have performed 20 Computational Fluid Dynamics in Practice simulations in the context of Burgers' turbulence4 57 , 58 by employing different Godunov-type methods with and without utilizing a SGS model. The above solutions are compared with the results obtained by DNS of the Burgers' turbulence, using a very fine grid and a small time step 3.

In 3 , we have also performed similar investigations for mixing layer flows. Currently, we are also conducting studies regarding the use of the TVD-CB scheme and other Godunov-type methods as an 'implicit modelling' approach in complex transitional and turbulent flows of engineering interest.

We discussed a number of computational approaches for simulating steady and time- dependent, laminar and turbulent, as well as incompressible and compressible flows.

We highlighted, in particular, the benefits with respect to numerical accuracy that one can derive by using non-linear monotone methods such as Godunov-type methods. Intensive research using these methods for accurately predicting shock waves and other gasdynamic phenomena, has been conducted for over three decades.

Research to fully exploit the properties of these methods in the simulation of transitional and turbulent flows, is still in its infancy. The preliminary indications are very encouraging, but significant efforts still need to be spent in order to understand the dissipation and dispersion behaviour of these methods in the above flows.

Relevant to the above understanding is also the issue of numerical artifacts produced by computational methods 61 , The differential equations are represented by difference equations and thus spurious solutions due to the numerical scheme, time step, initial and boundary conditions, and time interval for which the calculation proceeds, may be introduced.

From the perspective of numerical analysis, an understanding of the occurrence of spurious solutions is buried in the details of the truncation error. In the past, phenomena of stable and unstable multiple solutions and spurious steady state numerical solutions occurring below and above the linearized stability limit of a numerical scheme were observed Further research using the Navier-Stokes equations 35 has also shown that bifurcations to and from spurious asymptotic solutions are not only highly scheme and problem dependent, but also initial data and boundary condition dependent.

Therefore, simulations of complex flow phenomena such as turbulence should always be considered bearing in mind the aforementioned uncertainties. To achieve high-accuracy in under-resolved simulations of flows of engineering interest is a major challenge. This can only be done by developing high-order methods which satisfy the 4 The Burgers' equation can be considered as an one-dimensional analog to the Navier-Stokes equations, though they lead to different energy spectra.

The combination of these methods with advanced acceleration algorithms such as the dynamically-adaptive multigrid can possibly provide the desired accuracy in short computing times thus making complex turbulent flow computations affordable in an industrial design environment.

The number of possible solutions, which may arise, is examined and a mid-cell back substitution technique MCBST is developed to detect and avoid convergence towards apparently spurious solutions.
