Numerical Simulation of NDTAC Flow Field

The animation displays a numerical simulation of the Notre Dame Transonic Axial Compressor (NDTAC) flow field using Very Large Eddy Simulation (VLES) approach; the Q criterion is colored by the total pressure field.

The simulation was performed in a single reference frame (SRF) using ~7,000,000 cells with a mesh designed to produce y+ values of 1. Subgrid-scale model was based on k-omega SST turbulence closure while LES limit was consistent with coherent structure model.…
