Of interest to the research community dealing with real gas flows, this study analyzes the influence of the physical complexity of real gases on the amplitude of subgrid-scale (SGS) terms present in the filtered Navier–Stokes equations to be solved in large eddy simulations. The direct numerical simulation results of three academic configurations (...
It is known from the literature that Large Eddy Simulations of dense gas flows can prove very useful in order to better understand the behavior of friction losses in Organic Rankine Cycle turbines and expanders. Yet, no dedicated turbulence closure models exist for such flows. In this study, the authors lay the fondations for the development of tur...

This presentation provides the latest developments of the ANR EDGES project. By filtering DNS results of Homogeneous Isotropic Turbulence, it is shown that new subgrid-scale terms need to be modelled which have received no attention so far. This work is relevant in the context of LES and RANS simulations of ORC turbines.

Most high voltage gas circuit breakers (HVCB) in operation use SF6 as the arc interruption medium because of its high dielectric strength and good arc interruption properties. However, SF6 also displays a high global warming potential which motivates the investigation of possible alternatives to this gas. The performance of CO2 as an interruption m...

Evaporating sprays can be almost routinely simulated using an Eulerian-Lagrangian approach which relies on a Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) modeling of the continuous phase and a Lagrangian description of the discrete phase, including a turbulent dispersion model to express the effect of turbulent fluctuations within the carrier phase on th...

Jets in cross flow are of fundamental industrial importance and play an important role in validating turbulence models. Two jet configurations related to thermal fatigue phenomena are investigated: • T-junction of circular tubes where a heated jet discharges into a cold main flow and • Rectangular jet marked by a scalar discharging into a main flow...
