Lecture 5: Steady Turbulence vs. Turbulence-Resolving Simulations

By Jim Bungener and Philippe Spalart

In this video, Dr. Spalart will show the differences between the steady-state RANS turbulence model, time-accurate unsteady RANS, Large Eddy Simulation (LES), and Detached Eddy Simulation (DES). We will show how RANS, LES, and DES are complementary to each other and all have their role to play in state-of-the-art CFD. Examples will demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of each turbulence modeling and/or turbulence resolving technique.
