Development of a parallel code to simulate skewed flow over a bluff body

Thomas, T.G. and Williams, J.J.R. (1997) Development of a parallel code to simulate skewed flow over a bluff body Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, 67-8, pp. 155-167. (doi:10.1016/S0167-6105(97)00070-6).

This paper outlines a new complex geometry large-eddy simulation code using finite differences and a multigrid Poisson solver written for a parallel computer. The flow domain may be constructed from an arbitrary arrangement of rectangular blocks thus permitting flow in regions with complicated shapes, and may be mapped to any number of processors up to the number of blocks. The code is used to simulate turbulent flow at a Reynolds number of 3000 past a cube placed at ground level in rough terrain with its sides set 45° to mean flow direction. Preliminary results are presented which reproduce the conical vortices on the top of the cube.
