The LIKE Algorithm

A fast and straightforward method is provided for estimating key turbulence properties such as the length scale of the energy-containing eddies (ℓ), the turbulent intensity (Ior It), the turbulent kinetic energy (k), and the turbulent dissipation (e). Other major parameters include the turbulent dissipation frequency (w), the turbulent kinematic viscosity (nt), the turbulence Reynolds number (ReT), and the Taylor and Kolmogorov scales, l and h, respectively. A more comprehensive description of the parameters is found in Sections 3.4 and 3.5 of the book. The file name is “The LIKE Algorithm”.

How to calculate the Reynolds number for many types of internal and external flows

The file describes how to calculate the Reynolds number for pipes, ducts, spheres, cylinders, walls, jets, Couette flow, and airfoils. The critical Reynolds number (laminar to turbulent transition) is discussed, as well as the critical Reynolds point for flows that exhibitdrag transition. The file name is “Calculating the Reynolds Number”.

Demystifying y+, calculation procedure for y+

The key variable y+ is defined and a calculation procedure is described in detail. The file name is “Demystifying y+, calculation procedure for y+”.

Making Bullet Proof, Defensible Meshes

A brief discussion of the mathematical and geometrical background behind various key mesh metrics is provided. Then, a powerful set of “Grail, Gold Standard Mesh Metrics” are presented for generating computationally-defensible meshes. The mesh metric set has been tested extensively, with great success. The file name is “Making Bullet Proof, Defensible Meshes”.

"One of the best engineering books of All Times!

Great book with lots of examples for performing state-of-the-art reliable computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and turbulence modeling.

If there is someone who really knows about Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics and Turbulent Flow Modeling is Dr. Sal.

For years I´ve been anxiously waiting for Dr. Sal to write a book like this and he finally did!

I know Dr. Sal is currently a Principal Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and a Research Associate Professor at University of New Mexico with multiple degrees in Nuclear Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics and a PhD in Nuclear Engineering.

Every engineering student or professional should read it!."

"Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics and Turbulence Modeling is a practical, complementary companion for academic CFD textbooks and senior project courses in mechanical, civil, chemical, and nuclear engineering; senior undergraduate and graduate CFD and turbulence modeling courses; and for professionals developing commercial and research applications.

The book gives practical advice on selecting appropriate turbulence models and presents best CFD practices for modeling and generating reliable simulations. The author gathered and developed the book’s hundreds of tips, tricks, and examples over three decades of research and development at three national laboratories and at the University of New Mexico—many in print for the first time in this book. The book also places a strong emphasis on recent CFD and turbulence advancements found in the literature over the past five to 10 years. Readers can apply the author’s advice and insights whether using commercial or national laboratory software such as ANSYS Fluent, STAR-CCM, COMSOL, Flownex, SimScale, OpenFOAM, Fuego, KIVA, BIGHORN, or their own computational tools.
