Turbulence Structure over Porous Media
-- LBM Direct Numerical Simulations --
The talk starts from the descriptions of the reliable schemes for turbulence simulations, such as D3Q27 MRT and imbalance correction mesh refinement methods, developed by the speaker in the context of the lattice Boltzmann method. Then, the results of the DNS studies for porous medium flows by those methods are introduced. Those results explain how turbulence is affected by the permeability, anisotropic structure and surface topology of porous media via evolution of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability wave.
