Turbulence modelling of strongly detached unsteady flows: The circular cylinder

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    This paper reports the predictions of three turbulence modelling schemes in the application to the flow around a circular cylinder in a square duct. A URANS scheme known as the Stress-Strain Lag model has been developed in the DESider project, specifically to capture the effects of stress-strain misalignment observed in unsteady mean turbulent flows (Revell, 2006). Coupling of the Lag model with the popular k-ω SST model, to form the so-called SST- Cas model, has been shown to incorporate some of the advantages of a full Reynolds Stress transport Model (RSM), whilst retaining the efficiency and stability benefits of a eddy viscosity model (EVM) (Revell et al., 2006, 2007). This paper first presents 2-D results of the cylinder case, before examining the fully 3-D case, which is also calculated using the SST-DES approach. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
