Modélisation de la turbulence

Modélisation de la turbulence

Outre nos travaux classiques de turbulence homogène et isotrope, les modèles spectraux en deux points de type EDQNM (Eddy Damped Quasi-Normal Markovian) ont été étendus pour la turbulence homogène stratifiée instablement et pour la turbulence en rotation confinée verticalement.
En simulation des grandes échelles, un modèle de sous-maille de type REDLES bâti sur les fluctuations a été développé afin d’améliorer la prédiction de la turbulence dans les décollements de coin des compresseurs, avec la perspective d’en améliorer le contrôle.
Par ailleurs, des techniques récentes d’assimilation de données ont permis —outre l’amélioration de la technique de flot optique— le développement de modèles de sous-maille pour la simulation des grandes échelles du mélange turbulent, en faisant appel à la théorie de l’estimateur optimal et à des outils d’apprentissage supervisé.
