Creation of a database of a direct numerical simulation of a jet in cross flow with and without gyration and with non isothermal flows
This year, we performed the direct numerical simulation of a jet in cross flow without gyration and with a 90° skidding with respect to the cross flow, and with a cross flow 800 Kelvin hotter than the jet. The Sutherland law was implemented for accounting for viscous effects in the non isothermal case and was validated. Then direct numerical simulations have been performed, by using synthetic eddy methods for inlet boundary conditions. Third order discretization was used. A limiter on the density was also used for damping oscillations in strong shear layers, which in this case include both large density and velocity gradients.
The database contains the mean flow at all points, the Reynolds tensor at the degrees of freedom, and the time dependent data at some probes.
