Large-eddy simulation of turbulent flow over a rough surface

Xie, Zhengtong, Voke, Peter R., Hayden, Paul and Robins, Alan G. (2004) Large-eddy simulation of turbulent flow over a rough surface Boundary-Layer Meteorology, 111, (3), pp. 417-440. (doi:10.1023/B:BOUN.0000016599.75196.17).

Record type: Article


A family of wall models is proposed that exhibits more satisfactory performance than previous models for the large-eddy simulation (LES) of the turbulent boundary layer over a rough surface.The time and horizontally averaged statistics such as mean vertical profiles of wind velocity, Reynolds stress, turbulent intensities, turbulent kinetic energy and also spectra are compared with wind-tunnel experimental data. The purpose of the present study is to obtain simulated turbulent flows that are comparable with wind-tunnel measurements for use as the wind environment for the numerical prediction by LES of source dispersion in theneutral atmospheric boundary layer.
