Wolf Dynamics - Multiphysics simulations, optimization, and data analytics

Advanced Turbulence Course




Turbulent flows are ubiquitous in nature and industrial applications. Understanding the different turbulent models and their limitations, is of paramount importance for conducting successful simulations, tackling complex industrial problems, and the accurate prediction of forces and flow features.

During this course, we address the theoretical background of turbulence modeling for general CFD, we cover turbulence modeling approaches in OpenFOAM, and we work with several tutorials and validation cases addressing different physics.


Topics to be covered:

Introduction to turbulence modeling in CFD - Theoretical background

RANS/URANS/DES/LES modeling approaches in OpenFOAM

High/Low Reynolds number turbulence models in OpenFOAM

Near-wall treatment options in OpenFOAM

Meshing requirements for turbulence modeling

Setting boundary conditions and initial conditions

Boundary layer modeling and y+ value estimation

Choosing the right numerics

Advanced post-processing (quantitative and qualitative)

Best practices

Validation cases
