하천 및 관련 구조물의 특성 및 흐름 거동에 대한 평가는 소프트웨어 사용이 불가피한 복잡한 현상입니다.

Spur dike는 굴곡과 직선 경로에서 하천 조직, 침식 제어 및 강둑 보호에 사용되는 간단한 유압 구조입니다. 이 논문에서, 굴곡부에 지정된 간격을 가진 불 침투성 Spur 둑 주변의 흐름 패턴은 다양한 배출 및 흐름 폭의 다른 좁힘 비율에 대해 평가되고, 서로 비교됩니다.

또한 L 자형 스퍼 제방 주변의 속도 분포는 유한 체적 방법을 사용하여 2 차원 및 3 차원으로 평가됩니다.

수행된 실험에 따르면 최대 속도 제한 및 이에 따라 30 ° 각도의 첫 번째 스퍼 제방에서 강 굴곡에서 90 ° 각도의 물 흐름 방향으로 마지막 스퍼 제방까지 수 세량이 감소했습니다. 그리고 흐름이 마지막 스퍼 제방에 도달하면 흐름의 모든 난류가 손실됩니다.

흐름이 마지막 스퍼 제방까지 도달할 때 흐름의 모든 난류가 손실됩니다.

Scouring Tip2

유체유동이 일어나지 않는 경사면의 scouring 현상에 대한 이해

해석 조건

  • Inflow : velocity=1.23m/s
  • Outflow : Air pressure
  • Sediment condition
Scouring Tip1
Scouring Tip2
  1. 유체유동이 일어나지 않는 경사면에 scouring이 일어나는 이유가 무엇인가?
  2. Sediment가 점착력이 있는 경우(clay)는 어떤 변수로 입력해야 하는가?

Tip 1)유동이없는부분에 scouring이나타나는이유:

현재 scouring model은 물에잠겨있는 부분에 대해 해석을 하게되어 있으므로 packed sediment부분은 fluid region(with infinite drag)이 존재하게됩니다. 그러므로 fluid region이 없다 하더라도 packed sediment가 경사면에 존재하면 중력에 의해  내부유체의 유동이 생겨 위 예제와 같이 미소한  scouring이 표면에 물이 없는 경사면에서도 발생하는것입니다. 그러므로 이를 없애기 위해서는 물이 없는 경사면 부분은 별도의 solid로 규정하면 이 문제를 피할수 있습니다.

Tip2 ) clay가 sticky하면 일반적으로 유동의 상대운동이 감소될것이므로 drag coefficient 나 Richardson Zaki coefficient multiplier를 증가시켜 변화를 조사해 볼 수 있습니다.

천연자원이 계속 감소함에 따라, 대체 자원과 방법을 탐구하고 가능한 한 효과적으로 현재 공급량을 사용하고 있습니다. 엔지니어는 사고를 예방하고 채굴 및 기타 에너지 수확 기법으로 인한 환경적 영향을 평가하기 위해 FLOW-3D를 사용합니다.

잔해물 수송 테스트를 CFD 모델링과 결합하면 ECCS 스트레이너가 견딜 수 있어야 하는 잔해물 부하를 다른 방법으로는 가정해야하는 지나치게 보수적 인 값에서 크게 줄일 수 있습니다. CFD는 또한 수두 손실 테스트를 지원하기 위해 ECCS 스트레이너 주변의 흐름 패턴, 수두 손실 테스트 및 플랜트 설계 수정을 식별하는데 있어 containment pool 수위 변화를 식별하는데 유용함이 입증되었습니다.
( By combining debris transport testing with CFD modeling, the debris loads that the ECCS strainers must be able to withstand can be significantly reduced from the overly conservative values that must otherwise be assumed. CFD has also proved to be valuable in identifying containment pool water level changes, flow patterns in the vicinity of the ECCS strainer to support head loss testing, and plant design modifications.

시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 설계자와 엔지니어가 주조 공정의 세부 사항을 이해하고 경쟁사보다 저렴한 비용으로 고품질 부품을 일관성 있게 제작할 수 있게 해주는 유용한 도구입니다. 고압 다이캐스팅에서 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 주조 내로 금속을 공급하고 난류로 인한 공기 유입을 방지하기 위해 샷 슬리브 팁의 타이밍을 개선하고 오버 플로우에 대한 가장 효과적인 위치를 식별하는 더 나은 게이팅 시스템을 설계하는 데 사용됩니다. 이 기사에서는 프로세스 시간을 단축하기 위해 부품을 다이에서 배출하기 전에 시간을 줄이는 방법을 살펴 보겠습니다.

비스킷은 주조 과정에서 고형화 된 마지막 장소이기 때문에 우리의 노력에 집중할 수 있는 자연스러운 곳이며 따라서 부품을 언제 꺼낼 수 있는지를 결정합니다. 따라서 비스킷의 응고 시간을 줄일 수 있다면 전반적인 공정 시간을 줄일 수 있습니다. 이를 수행하는 한 가지 방법은 유체와 접촉하는 영역의 양을 늘려 샷팁을 통해 금속에서 더 많은 열을 제거하는 것입니다. 이 경우 정확하게 적용할 수는 없지만, 아래에 표시된 정상상태 대류 방정식을 사용하면 이 접근법의 기초가 가장 쉽게 표시됩니다.

이 방정식에서 열 흐름은 대류 열 전달 계수이고, 금속 팁과 샷 팁 온도의 차이이며, 금속과 접촉하는 샷 팁의 표면적입니다. 그림 1에서 볼 수 있듯이 오늘날 시장에서 볼 수 있는 다양한 형태의 플런저 팁이 금속과 접촉하는 표면적을 증가시키도록 설계되었습니다.

Figure 1: Plunger tips varying in size and surface area [1]

비스킷에서 제거된 열을 증가시키는 또 다른 방법은 비스켓에서 샷 팁과 금속 사이의 온도 차이를 조절하는 것입니다. 이는 그림 2 에서처럼 냉각 선을 팁에 추가하여 수행됩니다. 이 접근법의 단점은 피스톤 어셈블리에 상당한 복잡성을 추가한다는 것입니다.

Figure 2: Cooling within plunger tip [2]

New design

이 기사에서 FLOW-3D Cast를 사용하여 새로운 플런저 팁 디자인을 분석하고 수정되지 않은 표준 원통형 팁과 비교했습니다. 그림 3에서와 같이 끝 부분에 별 모양의 컷 아웃이 있는 원통형 팁으로 구성된 수정된 팁은 수정되지 않은 샷 팁보다 20 % 더 많은 표면적을 갖습니다. 팁은 분석을 위해 물로 냉각되지 않습니다.

Figure 3: Shape of the modified tip to give 20% increase in area



각 샷 팁 디자인에 대해 충진 (샷 팁 모션 포함) 및 응고 (플로우 미포함) 시뮬레이션을 실행했습니다. 모든 다른 매개 변수는 사례간에 동일합니다. 주요 관심사는 두 가지입니다. 즉, 충전 중 흐름 패턴과 전반적인 응고 시간입니다. 샷 팁 디자인이 파동 및 공기 유입을 유발하는 경우 팁 또는 샷 슬리브 프로파일을 다시 설계해야 하기 때문에 충진 중 흐름 패턴이 중요합니다.

첫 번째 비교는 그림 4에 표시된 샷 슬리브의 흐름 패턴입니다. 이 그림은 수정 된 팁이 있거나 없는 샷 슬리브 중 유체의 이미지를 보여 주며 팁의 모양이 샷 슬리브에 영향을 주지 않는 것으로 나타났습니다. 흐름 패턴. 샷 프로파일에 거의 영향을 주지 않기 때문에 응고에 집중할 수 있습니다.

Figure 4: Flow patterns in the shot sleeves from both tips.


두 번째 비교는 응고 시간입니다. 그림 5는 시간의 함수로서 팁의 평균 온도, 시간의 함수로서 금속으로부터 팁으로의 열 유속 및 추출시의 액체 금속의 온도 프로파일을 비교합니다

Figure 5: The above time plots show the average temperature in tip on the upper left hand corner and the heat flux from the metal to the tip in the upper right hand corner. The images below this show the metal temperature within the biscuit of the two castings.

그림 5에서 볼 수 있듯이, 그래프는 금속에서 더 많은 열을 추출했기 때문에 수정 된 팁의 평균 온도가 더 높음을 보여줍니다. 이것은 또한 열 유속 플롯에 표시됩니다. 그래프 아래의 이미지는 비스킷과 탄환의 경계면에서 액체금속을 보여줍니다. 데이터는 수정된 팁을 사용하여 열 제거가 12.7 % 증가한 것을 보여줍니다.


샷 팁 디자인은 주조 부품의 응고 시간에 눈에 띄는 영향을 미칩니다. 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 효과를 분석하고 이 지식을 사용하여 프로세스 매개변수를 최적화하는 방법을 제공합니다.

Turbulence Modeling

The majority of flows in nature are turbulent. This raises the question, is it necessary to represent turbulence in computational models of flow processes? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question, and the modeler must exercise some engineering judgment. The following remarks cover some things to consider when faced with this question.

난류 모델링

자연에서의 흐름은 대부분은 난류입니다. 이것은 유동의 수치해석 모델에서 난류를 표현할 필요가 있는가? 에 대한 의문이 생깁니다.  불행히도이 질문에 대한 답은 모델링을 할 경우 엔지니어가 공학적인 판단을 내려야합니다.  다음에 이 질문에 직면했을 때 고려해야 할  몇 가지를 설명합니다.

Definitions and Orders of Magnitude

The possibility that turbulence may occur is generally measured by the flow Reynolds number:

난류가 발생할 가능성은 일반적으로 흐름의 레이놀즈 수에 의해 측정됩니다.

where ρ is fluid density and μ is the dynamic viscosity of the fluid. The parameters L and U are a characteristic length and speed for the flow. Obviously, the choice of L and U are somewhat arbitrary, and there may not be single values that characterize all the important features of an entire flow field. The important point to remember is that Re is meant to measure the relative importance of fluid inertia to viscous forces. When viscous forces are negligible the Reynolds number is large.

여기서 ρ는 유체 밀도이고 μ는 유체의 동적 점도입니다. 매개 변수 L과 U는 흐름의 특성 길이와 속도입니다. 분명히 L과 U의 선택은 다소 임의적이며, 전체 유동장의 모든 중요한 특징을 특징 짓는 단일 값이 없을 수도 있습니다. 기억해야 할 중요한 점은 Re가 점성력에 대한 유체 관성의 상대적 중요성을 측정한다는 것입니다. 점성력을 무시할 수있는 경우 레이놀즈 수가 큽니다.

A good choice for L and U is usually one that characterizes the region showing the strongest shear flow, that is, where viscous forces would be expected to have the most influence.

L과 U에 대한 좋은 선택은 일반적으로 가장 강한 전단 흐름을 나타내는 영역, 즉 점성 힘이 가장 큰 영향을 미칠 것으로 예상되는 영역을 특징 짓는 것입니다.

Roughly speaking, a Reynolds number well above 1000 is probably turbulent, while a Reynolds number below 100 is not. The actual value of a critical Reynolds number that separates laminar and turbulent flow can vary widely depending on the nature of the surfaces bounding the flow and the magnitude of perturbations in the flow.

대략적으로 말하면, 1000을 훨씬 넘는 레이놀즈 수는 아마도 난류 일 수 있지만 100 미만의 레이놀즈 수는 그렇지 않습니다. 층류와 난류를 분리하는 임계 레이놀즈 수의 실제 값은 유동을 경계하는 표면의 특성과 유동의 섭동의 크기에 따라 크게 달라질 수 있습니다.

In a fully turbulent flow a range of scales exist for fluctuating velocities that are often characterized as collections of different eddy structures. If L is a characteristic macroscopic length scale and l is the diameter of the smallest turbulent eddies, defined as the scale on which viscous effects are dominant, then the ratio of these scales can be shown to be of order L/l≈Re3/4. This relation follows from the assumption that, in steady-state, the smallest eddies must dissipate turbulent energy by converting it into heat.

완전 난류 흐름에서는 다양한 와류 구조의 집합으로 특징 지어지는 변동 속도에 대해 다양한 스케일이 존재합니다. L이 거시적 길이 특성 척도이고, l을 점성 효과가 우세한 척도로 정의되는 가장 작은 난류 소용돌이의 직경인 경우, 이러한 척도의 비율은L/l≈Re3/4 정도인 것으로 표시 될 수 있습니다.  이 관계는 정상 상태에서 가장 작은 소용돌이가 난류 에너지를 열로 변환하여 발산해야한다는 가정에서 비롯됩니다.

Turbulence Models

From the above relation for the range of scales it is easy to see that even for a modest Reynolds number, say Re=104, the range spans three orders of magnitude, L/l=103. In this case, the number of control volumes needed to resolve all the eddies in a three-dimensional computation would be greater than 109. Numbers of this size are well beyond current computational capabilities. For this reason, considerable effort has been devoted to the construction of approximate models for turbulence.

난류 모델

스케일의 범위에 대한 위의 관계를 보면 적당한 레이놀즈 수 (예 : Re = 10 4 )에서도 범위가 세 자릿수인 L/l=103에 걸쳐 있음을 쉽게 알 수 있습니다. 이 경우 3 차원 계산에서 모든 소용돌이를 해결하는데 필요한 제어 볼륨의 수는 109보다 커집니다.이 크기의 수는 현재 계산 능력을 훨씬 뛰어 넘습니다. 이러한 이유로 난류에 대한 대략적인 모델을 구성하는 데 상당한 노력을 기울였습니다.

We cannot describe turbulence modeling in any detail in this short article. Instead, we will simply make some basic observations about the types of models available. Be forewarned, however, that no models exist for general use. Every model must be employed with discretion and its results cautiously treated.

이 짧은 기사에서는 난류 모델링에 대해 구체적으로 설명 할 수 없습니다.  대신 사용 가능한 모델의 유형에 대한 몇 가지 기본적인 설명만 합니다.  그러므로 일반 모델은 존재하지 않는 것을 미리 양해 바랍니다.  어떤 모델도 신중하게 선택하고 결과를 주의 깊게 처리해야 합니다.

The original turbulence modeler was Osborne Reynolds. Anyone interested in this subject should read his groundbreaking work (Phil. Trans. Royal Soc. London, Series A, Vol.186, p.123, 1895). Reynolds’s insights and approach were both fundamental and practical.

난류를 처음으로 모델링 한 인물은 Osborne Reynolds 입니다.  이 건에 관심이있는 분은 Reynolds 의 획기적인 저서 (Phil. Trans. Royal Soc. London, Series A, Vol.186, p.123,1895)를 참조하십시오.  Reynolds 의 통찰력과 접근 방식은 기본이며 동시에 실용적인 것입니다.

The Pseudo-Fluid Approximation

In a fully turbulent flow it is sometimes possible to define an effective turbulent viscosity, μeff, that roughly approximates the turbulent mixing processes contributing to a diffusion of momentum (and other properties). Thinking of a turbulent flow as a pseudo-fluid having increased viscosity leads to the observation that the effective Reynolds number for a turbulent flow is generally less than 100:

의사 유체 근사

완전 난류 흐름에서는 운동량 (및 기타 특성)의 확산에 기여하는 난류 혼합 공정에 대략적으로 근접하는 효과적인 난류 점도 μ eff를 정의 할 수 있습니다. 난류 흐름을 점도가 증가 된 유사 유체로 생각하면 난류 흐름에 대한 유효 레이놀즈 수가 일반적으로 100 미만이라는 관찰이 가능합니다.

This observation is particularly useful because it suggests a simple way to approximate some turbulent flows. In particular, when the details of the turbulence are not important, but the general mixing behavior associated with the turbulence is, it is often possible to use an effective turbulent (eddy) viscosity in place of the molecular viscosity. The effective viscosity can often be expressed as

이 관찰 결과는 몇 가지 난류를 근사하는 간단한 방법을 제시하고 있기 때문에 특히 유용합니다.  특히 난류 대한 자세한 내용은 중요하지 난류와 관련된 일반적인 혼합 거동이 중요한 경우에는 분자 점성 대신 사용 난류 (소용돌이) 점성을 사용할 수있는 경우가 있습니다.  유효 점성은 다음의 식으로 나타낼 수 있습니다.

where α is a number between 0.02 and 0.04. This expression works well for the turbulence associated with plane and cylindrical jets entering a stagnant fluid. The effective Reynolds number associated with this model is Re=1/α, a number between 25 and 50.

α는 0.02에서 0.04 사이의 숫자입니다.  이 수식은 정체 유체에 들어가는 평면 제트 및 원통형 분류 관련 난류에 대하여 효과가 있습니다.  이 모델에 대한 사용 레이놀즈 수는 Re = 1 / α 25에서 50 사이의 숫자입니다.

While this model is often adequate for predicting the gross features of a turbulent flow, it may not be suitable for predicting local details. For example, it would predict a parabolic flow (i.e., laminar) profile in a pipe instead of the measured logarithmic profile.

이 모델은 종종 난류의 전반적인 특징을 예측하는데는 적합하지만, 로컬 세부 사항을 예측하는 데는 적합하지 않을 수 있습니다.  예를 들어, 측정된 대수 프로필 대신 파이프의 포물선 흐름 (층류 등)의 프로파일을 예측합니다.

Local Viscosity Model

The next level of complexity beyond a constant eddy viscosity is to compute an effective viscosity that is a function of local conditions. This is the basis of Prandtl’s mixing-length hypothesis where it is assumed that the viscosity is proportional to the local rate of shear. The proportionality constant has the dimensions of a length squared. The square root of this constant is referred to as the “mixing length.”

This model offers an improvement over a simple constant viscosity. For example, it predicts the logarithmic velocity profile in a pipe. However, it is not used much because it doesn’t account for important transport effects.

국소 점성 모델

일정한 소용돌이 점성보다 복잡한 것은 국소적 조건의 함수인 유효 점성을 계산하는 것입니다.  이것은 점성이 국소적 전단 속도에 비례한다고 가정된다는 프란틀 혼합 길이 가설(Prandtl’s mixing-length hypothesis )의 기초가됩니다.  비례 상수의 차원은 길이의 제곱입니다.  이 상수의 제곱근은 “혼합 장”이라고합니다.

이 모델은 간단한 일정한 점성 개선을 제공합니다.  예를 들어, 파이프의 대수 속도 프로파일을 예측할 수 있습니다.  그러나 중요한 수송 효과를 지원하지 않기 때문에 그다지 많이 사용되지 않습니다.

Turbulence Transport Models

For practical engineering purposes the most successful computational models have two or more transport equations. A minimum of two equations is desirable because it takes two quantities to characterize the length and time scales of turbulent processes. The use of transport equations to describe these variables allows turbulence creation and destruction processes to have localized rates. For instance, a region of strong shear at the corners of a building may generate strong eddies, while little turbulence is generated in the building’s wake region. The strong mixing observed in the wakes of buildings (or automobiles and airplanes) is caused by the advection of upstream generated eddies into the wake. Without transport mechanisms, turbulence would have to instantly adjust to local conditions, implying unrealistically large creation and destruction rates.

난류 수송 모델

실용 공학의 목적인 가장 뛰어난 수치 모델에는 2 개 이상의 수송 방정식이 있습니다.  난류 과정의 길이와 시간의 스케일을 특징으로는 2 개 분량이 필요하므로 최소한 2 개의 방정식이있는 것이 바람직 할 것입니다.  수송 방정식을 사용하여 이러한 변수를 표현하면 난류의 생성 속도와 파괴율을 국소적으로 할 수 있습니다.  예를 들어, 건물의 모서리의 전단력이 강한 영역에서 강력한 소용돌이가 생성 된 건축물의 후류 영역에서 난류는 거의 생성되지 않습니다.  건축물 (또는 자동차 나 비행기)의 후류에서 관찰되는 강력한 혼합은 상류에서 생성된 소용돌이 후류의 이류에 의해 발생합니다.  수송 메커니즘이 없는 경우, 난류는 국소적 조건에 즉시 적응해야하므로 생성 속도와 파괴율이 비현실적인 크기입니다.

Nearly all transport models invoke one or more gradient assumptions in which a correlation between two fluctuating quantities is approximated by an expression proportional to the gradient of one of the terms. This captures the diffusion-like character of turbulent mixing associated with many small eddy structures, but such approximations can lead to errors when there is significant transport by large eddy structures.

거의 모든 수송 모델에서 하나 이상의 경사 가정을 이루어 두 변동하는 양의 상관 관계가 하나의 항 기울기에 비례하는 식으로 근사됩니다.  이를 통해 다수의 작은 소용돌이 구조와 관련된 난류 혼합 확산적인 특징을 파악할 수 있지만, 큰 소용돌이 구조에 의해 상당한 전송이 존재하는 경우, 이러한 근사 오류가 발생할 수 있습니다.

Large Eddy Simulation

Most models of turbulence are designed to approximate a smoothed out or time-averaged effect of turbulence. An exception is the Large Eddy Simulation model (or Subgrid Scale model). The idea behind this model is that computations should be directly capable of modeling all the fluctuating details of a turbulent flow except for those too small to be resolved by the grid. The unresolved eddies are then treated by approximating their effect using a local eddy viscosity. Generally, this eddy viscosity is made proportional to the local grid size and some measure of the local flow velocity, such as the magnitude of the rate of strain.

Large Eddy 시뮬레이션

난류의 대부분의 모델은 매끄럽게 또는 시간 평균된 난류의 효과를 근사하도록 설계되어 있습니다.  예외는 큰 에디 시뮬레이션 모델 (또는 서브 그리드 스케일 모델)입니다.  이 모델의 배경에는 너무 작은 격자에 의해 해결할 수 없는 것을 제외하고는 난류의 모든 변동 내용은 계산에 의해 직접 모델링 할 수 있어야 한다는 생각이 있습니다.  미해결 소용돌이는 로컬 점성을 사용하여 효과를 근사하여 처리됩니다.  일반적으로이 소용돌이 점성은 국소적인 격자 크기 및 어떤 국소적인 흐름의 속도 측정 (변형 속도의 크기 등)에 비례합니다.

대부분의 난류 모델은 난류의 평활화 또는 시간 평균 효과에 근접하도록 설계되었습니다. 예외는 Large Eddy Simulation 모델 (또는 Subgrid Scale 모델)입니다. 이 모델의 이면에있는 아이디어는 계산이 격자에 의해 해결 되기에는 너무 작은 것을 제외하고, 난류 흐름의 모든 변동 세부 사항을 직접 모델링 할 수 있어야 한다는 것입니다. 해결되지 않은 소용돌이는 로컬 소용돌이 점도를 사용하여 효과를 근사화하여 처리됩니다. 일반적으로, 이 와류 점도는 로컬 격자 크기와 변형률의 크기와 같은 로컬 유속 측정치에 비례하여 만들어집니다.

Such an approach might be expected to give good results if the unresolved scales are small enough, for example, in the viscous sub-range. Unfortunately, this is still an uncomfortably small size. When these models are used with a minimum scale size that is above the viscous sub-range, they are then referred to as Coherent Structure Capturing models.

이러한 접근 방식은 미해결 스케일이 충분히 작은 경우, 예를 들어 점성이 작은 영역에 있는 경우에 좋은 결과를 얻을 수 있을 것으로 기대됩니다.  불행히도 아직은 여전히 불편한 작은 크기 입니다.  이러한 모델을 점성 작은 영역보다 높은 최소 스케일 사이즈로 사용하는 경우는 CSC (Coherent Structure Capturing) 모델이라고합니다.

The advantage of these more realistic models is that they provide information not only about the average effects of turbulence but also about the magnitude of fluctuations. But, this advantage is also a disadvantage, because averages must actually be computed over many fluctuations, and some means must be provided to introduce meaningful fluctuations at the start of a computation and at boundaries where flow enters the computational region.

이보다 현실적인 모델의 장점은 난류의 평균 효과에 대한 정보뿐만 아니라 변동의 크기에 대한 정보도 제공 될 것입니다.  그러나 이와같은 장점은 단점도 있습니다.  평균적으로 실제로 다수의 변동에 대해 계산해야 하며, 계산의 시작 및 흐름이 계산 영역에 들어가는 경계에서 상당한 변화를 도입하기위한 수단을 제공 할 필요가 있기 때문입니다.

Turbulence from an Engineering Perspective

We have seen that it is probably not reasonable to attempt to compute all the details of a turbulent flow. Furthermore, from the perspective of most applications, it’s not likely that we would be interested in the local details of individual fluctuations. The question then is how should we deal with turbulence, when should we employ a turbulence model, and how complex should that model be?

공학적 관점에서의 난류

지금까지 난류의 모든 세부 사항을 계산하려고하는 것은 아마도 합리적이지 않다는 것을 확인했습니다.  또한 많은 적용례의 관점에서 개별 변동의 국소적인 세부 사항이 관심의 대상이 될 수는 없을 것입니다.  거기서 생기는 의문은 난류를 어떻게 처리해야 할지 난류 모델을 언제 선택할지 그 모델이 얼마나 복잡할지에 있다는 것입니다.

Experimental observations suggest that many flows become independent of Reynolds number once a certain minimum value is exceeded. If this were not so, wind tunnels, wave tanks, and other experimental tools would not be as useful as they are. One of the principal effects of a Reynolds number change is to relocate flow separation points. In laboratory experiments this fact sometimes requires the use of trip wires or other devices to induce separation at desired locations. A similar treatment may be used in a numerical simulation.

실험적 관찰에 따르면 특정 최소값이 초과되면 많은 흐름이 레이놀즈 수와 무관하게됩니다. 그렇지 않다면 풍동, 파도 탱크 및 기타 실험 도구는 그다지 유용하지 않을 것입니다. 레이놀즈 수 변경의 주요 효과 중 하나는 흐름 분리 지점을 재배치하는 것입니다. 실험실 실험에서이 사실은 때때로 원하는 위치에서 분리를 유도하기 위해 트립 와이어 또는 기타 장치를 사용해야합니다. 유사한 처리가 수치 시뮬레이션에서 사용될 수 있습니다.

Most often a simulation is done to determine the dominant flow patterns that develop in some specified situation. These patterns consist of the mean flow and the largest eddy structures containing the majority of the kinetic energy of the flow. The details of how this energy is removed from the larger eddies and dissipated into heat by the smallest eddies may not be important. In such cases the dissipation mechanisms inherent in numerical methods may alone be sufficient to produce reasonable results. In other cases it is possible to supply additional dissipation with a simple turbulence model such as a constant eddy viscosity or a mixing length assumption.

대부분의 경우 특정 상황에서 발생하는 지배적 인 흐름 패턴을 결정하기 위해 시뮬레이션이 수행됩니다. 이러한 패턴은 평균 흐름과 흐름의 대부분의 운동 에너지를 포함하는 가장 큰 소용돌이 구조로 구성됩니다. 이 에너지가 더 큰 소용돌이에서 제거되고 가장 작은 소용돌이에 의해 열로 소산되는 방법에 대한 세부 사항은 중요하지 않을 수 있습니다. 그러한 경우 수치 적 방법에 내재 된 소산 메커니즘만으로도 합리적인 결과를 얻을 수 있습니다. 다른 경우에는 일정한 소용돌이 점도 또는 혼합 길이 가정과 같은 간단한 난류 모델을 사용하여 추가 소산을 제공 할 수 있습니다.

Turbulence transport equations require more CPU resources and should only be used when there are strong, localized sources of turbulence and when that turbulence is likely to be advected into other important regions of the flow.  When there is reason to seriously question the results of a computation, it is always desirable to seek experimental confirmation.

An excellent introduction to fluid turbulence can be found in the book Elementary Mechanics of Fluids by Hunter Rouse, Dover Publications, Inc., New York (1978).

난류 전송 방정식은 더 많은 CPU 리소스를 필요로하며 강력하고 국부 화 된 난기류 소스가 있고 그 난류가 흐름의 다른 중요한 영역으로 전파 될 가능성이있는 경우에만 사용해야합니다. 계산 결과에 매우 의문이 생길 경우는 실험에 의해 확인하는 것이 좋습니다.

유체 난류에 대한 훌륭한 소개는 Hunter Rouse, Dover Publications, Inc., New York (1978)의 책 Elementary Mechanics of Fluids에서 찾을 수 있습니다.
