Abstract

Simulations of compressible boundary-layer flow at three different Reynolds numbers (Re δ 5:59 × 10 4, 1:78 × 10 5, and 1:58 Times; 10 6) are performed using a hybrid large-eddy simulation/Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes method. Variations in the recycling/rescaling method, the higher order extension, the choice of primitive variables, the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes to large eddy simulation transition parameters, and the mesh resolution are considered in order to assess the model. The results indicate that the present model can provide good predictions of the mean-flow properties, second-moment statistics, and structural features of the boundary layers considered. Normalized turbulent statistics in the outer layer are found to be independent of Reynolds number, similar to incompressible turbulent boundary layers.
