Abstract

Conventionally meridian, RANS or URANS simulations are used in design. However, their accuracy is not always satisfactory. Higher order methods like direct and large eddy simulation have shown improved results for various case. While traditionally many direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large eddy simulation (LES) studies have been conducted using highly tailored research codes. These codes often use high order methods with both low numerical dissipation and dispersion often in conjunction with structured grids. While these features allow for high efficiency and accuracy they require a considerable effort to obtain appropriate grids. The ongoing rapid increases in available computer power..
