Introduction


The purpose of this Lecture Series is to offer a full overview of the present development and the potential of the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of turbulent flows. The first part of the course will introduce and discuss fundamental principles, present state-of-the-art applications. The specific numerical problems related to the implementation of LES will be also presented.

Large eddy Simulation

The second part will present applications of these approaches to various engineering fields of wide interest.

The course will be concluded discussing the possible developments of LES and Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) which represents the most promising technique to extend the usefulness of LES for high Reynolds-number flows.

The course will be delivered by internationally recognized experts. Its content is addressed both to researchers interested in the fundamental simulation of turbulence and engineers wanting to apply the LES technique or LES solvers to the accurate simulations of turbulent flows.

The lecture series director is Professor Ugo Piomelli from Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada. The local organizer is Professor Jeroen van Beeck from the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, Belgium.
