Abstract

Recently the concept of Gene Expression Programming (GEP) has been introduced with very encouraging results for the purpose of modelling the unclosed tensors in the context of RANS (Reynolds Averaged Navier–Stokes) turbulence modelling. This paper extends the previous framework to modelling subgrid stresses (SGS) in the context of Large Eddy Simulation (LES). In order to achieve this goal the GEP algorithm was coupled with an external multiprocessor postprocessing tool that evaluates a cost function based on a-priori analysis of explicitly filtered DNS data of turbulent premixed planar flames. Although LES of combustion systems is becoming increasingly popular, the closures for sub-grid scal..
