We carry out direct numerical simulations (DNS) of turbulent flow and heat transfer in pressure-driven plane channels, by considering cases with heating on both walls, as well as asymmetric heating limited to one of the channel walls. Friction Reynolds numbers up to ${Re}_{\tau } \approx 2000$ are considered, and Prandtl numbers from ${Pr}=0.025$ t...

We study the flow above non-optimal riblets, specifically large drag-increasing and two-scale trapezoidal riblets. In order to reach large Reynolds numbers and large scale separation while retaining access to flow details, we employ a combination of boundary-layer hot-wire measurements and direct numerical simulation (DNS) in minimal-span channels....

We investigate the Reynolds analogy over riblets, namely the analogy between the fractional increase in Stanton number $C_h$ and the fractional increase in the skin-friction coefficient $C_f$ , relative to a smooth surface. We investigate the direct numerical simulation data of Endrikat et al. ( Flow Turbul. Combust. , vol. 107, 2021, pp. 1–29). Th...

We present pore-resolved direction numerical simulations (DNS) of turbulent flows grazing over perforated plates, that closely resemble the acoustic liners found on aircraft engines. Our DNS explore a large parameter space including the effects of porosity, thickness, and viscous-scaled diameter of the perforated plates, at friction Reynolds number...

This work presents a transpacific airliner designed for minimal climate impact, incorporating several novel design features. These include open rotor engines, sustainable aviation fuels, natural laminar flow airfoils, and riblets. The design’s configuration and mission have been optimised simultaneously using a combination of standard preliminary t...

We perform direct numerical simulation of supersonic turbulent channel flow over cubical roughness elements, spanning bulk Mach numbers $M_b=0.3$ – $4$ , both in the transitional and fully rough regime. We propose a novel definition of roughness Reynolds number which is able to account for the viscosity variations at the roughness crest and should...

We carry out direct numerical simulations (DNS) of flow in a turbulent square duct by focusing on heat transfer effects, considering the case of unit Prandtl number. Reynolds numbers up to ${{Re}}_{\tau } \approx 2000$ are considered that are much higher than in previous studies, and that yield clear scale separation between inner- and outer-layer...

Reynolds numbers up to $Re_\tau \approx 2000$ are considered which are much higher than in previous studies, and which yield clear scale separation between inner- and outer-layer dynami...

We perform direct numerical simulations of turbulent flow at friction Reynolds number $Re_\tau \approx 500-2000$ grazing over perforates plates with moderate viscous-scaled orifice diameter $d^+\approx40$--$160$ and analyse the relation between permeability and added drag. Unlike previous studies of turbulent flows over permeable surfaces, we find...

Riblets reduce skin-friction drag until their viscous-scaled size becomes large enough for turbulence to approach the wall, leading to the breakdown of drag-reduction. In order to investigate inertial-flow mechanisms that are responsible for the breakdown, we employ the minimal-span channel concept for cost-efficient direct numerical simulation (DN...

We use the Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) equations with a full Reynolds stress model (RSM) to study the effect of the corner angle in supersonic corner flow. RANS data are compared to reference direct numerical simulation of fully developed a square duct flow, which support predictive capability of secondary flows from Stress-ω RSM. We the...

We present STREAmS, an in-house high-fidelity solver for direct numerical simulations (DNS) of canonical compressible wall-bounded flows, namely turbulent plane channel, zero-pressure gradient turbulent boundary layer and supersonic oblique shock-wave/boundary layer interaction. The solver incorporates state-of-the-art numerical algorithms, specifi...

We carry out a priori tests of linear and nonlinear eddy viscosity models using direct numerical simulation (DNS) data of square duct flow up to friction Reynolds number Reτ=1055. We focus on the ability of eddy viscosity models to reproduce the anisotropic Reynolds stress tensor components aij responsible for turbulent secondary flows, namely the...

We present STREAmS, an in-house high-fidelity solver for large-scale, massively parallel direct numerical simulations (DNS) of compressible turbulent flows on graphical processing units (GPUs). STREAmS is written in the Fortran 90 language and it is tailored to carry out DNS of canonical compressible wall-bounded flows, namely turbulent plane chann...

The mean skin-friction drag in a wall-bounded turbulent flow can be decomposed into different physics-informed contributions based on the mean and statistical turbulence quantities across the wall layer. Following Renard and Deck's study (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 790, 2016, pp. 339-367) on the skin-friction drag decomposition of incompressible wall-bou...

We carry out direct numerical simulation of compressible square duct flow in the range of bulk Mach numbers M b = 0.2 − 3, and up to friction Reynolds number Re τ = 500. The effects of flow compressibility on the secondary motions are found to be negligible, with the typical Mach number associated with the cross-stream flow always less than 0.1. As...

We study compressible turbulent flow in a circular pipe at computationally high Reynolds number. Classical related issues are addressed and discussed in light of the DNS data, including validity of compressibility transformations, velocity/temperature relations, passive scalar statistics, and size of turbulent eddies. Regarding velocity statistics,...

We carry out Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) of flows in closed straight ducts with complex peripheral shape. To perform the simulations the Navier-Stokes equations in cylindrical coordinates are discretized by a second-order finite difference scheme, and the immersed-boundary technique is used to resolve the flow close to walls of complex shape....

We develop a semi-implicit algorithm for time-accurate simulation of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, with special reference to wall-bounded flows. The method is based on linearization of the partial convective fluxes associated with acoustic waves, in such a way to suppress, or at least mitigate the acoustic time step limitation. Together...

We carry out direct numerical simulations (DNS) of square duct flow spanning the friction Reynolds number range , to study the nature and the role of secondary motions. We preliminarily find that secondary motions are not the mere result of the time averaging procedure, but rather they are present in the instantaneous flow realizations, correspondi...

We use a direct numerical simulations (DNS) database for turbulent flow in a square duct up to bulk Reynolds number $\Rey_b=40000$, to quantitatively analyze the role of secondary motions on the mean flow structure. For that purpose we derive a generalized form of the identity of Fukagata, Iwamoto and Kasagi (FIK), which allows to quantify the effe...

We develop a high-fidelity numerical solver for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, with the main aim of highlighting the predictive capabilities of low-diffusive numerics for flows in complex geometries. The space dis-cretization of the convective terms in the Navier-Stokes equations relies on a robust energy-preserving numerical flux, and n...

We study turbulent flows in pressure-driven ducts with square cross-section through direct numerical simulation in a wide enough range of Reynolds number to reach flow conditions which are representative of fully developed turbulence. Numerical simulations are carried out over extremely long integration times to get adequate convergence of the flow...

The effect of Reynolds and Mach number variation in compressible isothermal channel flow is investigated through a series of direct numerical simulations (DNS), at bulk Mach number and bulk Reynolds number up to which is sufficient to sense sizeable high-Reynolds-number effects not reached before in this type of flow. Dedicated incompressible DNS a...

The effect of the Reynolds number in a supersonic isothermal channel flow is studied using a direct numerical simulation (DNS). The bulk Mach number based on the wall temperature is 1.5, and the bulk Reynolds number is increased up to Reτ ≈ 1000. The use of van Driest velocity transformation in the presence of heated walls has been questioned due t...
