Characterization of model uncertainty for turbulent flows

Participants : Régis Duvigneau, Jérémie Labroquère, Emmanuel Guilmineau [CNRS ECN, Nantes] , Marianna Brazza [CNRS IMFT, Toulouse] , Mathieu Szubert [CNRS IMFT, Toulouse] .

The uncertainty related to turbulence modeling is still a bottleneck in realistic flows simulation. Therefore, some studies have been conducted to quantify this uncertainty for two problems in which turbulence plays a critical role. Firstly, the impact of the model choice has been estimated in the case of a massively detached flow over a 2D backward facing step including an oscillatory active control device, whose parameters are optimized [41] , [34] . Secondly, the influence of the transition point location has been investigated, in the case of the 3D flow around a bluff-body, using models ranging from RANS to DES models [40] .
