OpenFOAM source files

for two benchmark cases: a 2D ZPG boundary layer over a flat plate and a 2D bump-in-channel flow (see description at TMBWG), with the standard formulations of Spalart-Allmaras, Wilcox’s 2006 version of k-ω, and SST 1994 turbulence models (also as described at the TMBWG website) can be downloaded here as a single zip file. Changes to the original OpenFOAM files are documented here . When using these files, a reference to our paper AIAA2014-2087, where the results obtained with these files are presented, will be appreciated.

DNS data for 3rd, 4th, and 5th-order velocity moments in a zero-pressure gradient boundary layer over a flat plate at Reθ = 4100 and 5200.

The data are described in S.V. Poroseva, B.E. Kaiser, J.A. Sillero, S.M. Murman, “Validation of a Closing Procedure for Fourth-Order RANS Turbulence Models with DNS Data in an Incompressible Zero-Pressure-Gradient Turbulent Boundary Layer,” Int. J. Heat and Fluid Flow, 2015, They can be downloaded here as a single zip-file. The zip-file contains 6 data files that can be open with any text editor. The paper can be downloaded from here (free until September 11, 2015)

Experimental data for stationary and rotating cylindrical pipe flow

The data were first published in Zaets, P. G., Kurbatskii, A. F., Onufriev, A. T., Poroseva S. V., Safarov, N. A., Safarov, R. A., Yakovenko S. N. “Experimental study and mathematical simulation of the characteristics of a turbulent flow in a straight circular pipe rotating about its longitudinal axis.” J. Appl. Mech. and Tech. Physics, 1998, 39(2), pp. 249-260. (See also A. F. Kurbatskii and S. V. Poroseva, “Modelling turbulent diffusion in a rotating cylindrical pipe flow.” Int. J. Heat and Fluid Flow, 1999, 20(3), pp. 341-348. ) The data can be downloaded here as a single xlsx-file.
