Adaptive DNS/LES: a new agenda in cfd
2004 (English)In: Finite element methods: 1970s and beyond / [ed] L.P. Franca, T.E. Tezduyar and A. Masud, Barcelona: CIMNE , 2004Chapter in book (Refereed)
We show that using adaptive finite element methods it is possible to accurately simulate turbulent flow with the computational power of a PC. We argue that this possibility should set a new agenda in CFD. The key to this break-through is (i) application of the general approach to adaptitive error control in Galerkin methods based on duality, coupled with (ii) crucial properties of turbulent flow allowing accurate computation of mean value quantities such as drag and lift without full resolution of all scales.
