Two approaches to creating a turbulence model with increased temporal accuracy

When modeling a turbulent fluid flow, an Approximate Deconvolution Model (ADM) is sometimes chosen - in particular, due to the high order spatial accuracy. A method has been presented in [1], that demonstrates an approach to increase the temporal accuracy of the ADM, by combining it with the Deferred Correction method (DCM). The resulting model, DC-ADM, is at least second order accurate in both space and time, and theoretically an arbitrarily high order of accuracy is achievable, provided that enough computational resources are available. However, in some applications, especially when random input data are present, the efficiency of the ADM becomes at least as important, as its accuracy. In order to keep the second order accuracy, but reduce the computational time, we propose a modification of the DC-ADM: in the first, defect step, we replace the turbulence model with the computationally cheaper artificial viscosity approximation. Obviously, this defect step approximation loses accuracy, compared with that obtained in the DC-ADM method, but we will show that the accuracy is recovered in the correction step. The numerical tests demonstrate that the new approach is more efficient, if the compared algorithms are run sequentially: the results from the proposed method are obtained in 35% less time, than those obtained by DC-ADM. The tests also demonstrate that there is no loss of quality of the solutions, when switching from the DC-ADM to the new model. When parallelization is introduced, the methods are comparable in both accuracy and computational time.

Finite element error analysis of a zeroth order approximate deconvolution model based on a mixed formulation
Carolina Cardoso, Manica; Kaya Merdan, Songül (2007-07-01)
A suitable discretization for the Zeroth Order Model in Large Eddy Simulation of turbulent flows is sought. This is a low order model, but its importance lies in the insight that it provides for the analysis of the higher order models actually used in practice by the pioneers Stolz and Adams [N.A. Adams, S. Stolz, On the approximate deconvolution procedure for LES, Phys. Fluids 2 (1999) 1699-1701; N.A. Adams, S. Stolz, Deconvolution methods for subgrid-scale approximation in large eddy simulation, in: B.J. ...
Three-Dimensional Finite Element Modeling for Spudcan Penetration into a Clayey Seabed
Emren, Volkan; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Tuncay, Kağan (2017-03-15)
In this study the penetration of spudcan foundation for "jack-up rig" type offshore oil platform into a uniform clayey seabed is investigated with three-dimensional finite element modeling (Abaqus 6.14) using Coupled Eulerian Lagrangian method that can handle large deformation problems. One of the goals of this study is to compare the penetration-bearing resistance behavior of spudcan obtained by numerical study with the method suggested in InSafeJIP design guideline. For the spudcan geometry and soil prope...
Two approximation schemes to the bound states of the Dirac-Hulthen problem
IKHDAİR, SAMEER; Sever, Ramazan (IOP Publishing, 2011-09-02)
The bound-state (energy spectrum and two-spinor wavefunctions) solutions of the Dirac equation with the Hulthen potential for all angular momenta based on the spin and pseudospin symmetry are obtained. The parametric generalization of the Nikiforov-Uvarov method is used in the calculations. The orbital dependence (spin-orbit-and pseudospin-orbit-dependent coupling too singular 1/r(2)) of the Dirac equation are included to the solution by introducing a more accurate approximation scheme to deal with the cent...
A multiscale analytical correction technique for two-dimensional thermal models of AlGaN/GaN HEMTs
Azarifar, Mohammad; Donmezer, Nazli (2017-07-01)
Two-dimensional approaches are widely used in the numerical thermal models of AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) to reduce the high computational cost of the three-dimensional approaches. The aforementioned simplified models predict inaccurate device temperatures with significant overestimation of the thermal resistance. In order to take advantage of the computational efficiency of the two-dimensional models, a correction procedure is necessary for the accurate representation of the actual...

By using the first order autoregressive time series model, rotation histories of accretion-powered X-ray pulsars are modeled yielding a torque noise strength S(in) and the average secular spin-up term [OMEGA]. We find that Her X-1, Cen X-3, A0535 + 26, and Vela X-1 can be modeled with white torque-noise leading to random walks in pulse frequency; for the remaining sources the random walk model is also acceptable. Using this model we calculate the noise strengths in the frequency derivative and estimate the ...
