Large-eddy Simulation of boundary layer bypass transition


Project Description

Large-eddy simulation is a viable approach to investigate high Reynolds number wall-bounded turbulent flows. In this project we will simulate bypass transition of the boundary layer on a flat plate. The additional details are in the pdf file attached.

Desired Project Deliverables

Transition of incompressible boundary layer flow requires perturbations with specific features.Perturbation could come from wall, or out of the boundary layer. Study of incompressible transition mainly employ either DNS or LES
