Turbulence resolution quality estimation in OpenFOAM : the resolutionIndex function

Estimation of the turbulence resolution quality in OpenFOAM with the resolutionIndex function Hi everybody! In our category Tips & Tricks for CFD, I propose here to describe a new useful function in OpenFOAM, allowing to estimate the turbulence resolution quality for a DES/LES model. Let’s have a look at this! 🙂 About OpenFOAM OpenFOAM (Open-source

Analysis of wind pressure coefficients on a cube with CFD simulation via Code_Saturne

Comparison of wind pressure coefficients on a cube between experimental results and some CFD approaches with code_saturne Abstract This article is an investigation about the CFD modeling of strain effects generated by wind on buildings. This analysis has been done with the open- source software code_saturne[1] with which several turbulence models have been tested. The
