Large eddy simulations of the flow around pyramids
Paper in proceedings, 2012

The paper presents results of large eddy simulations (LES) of flows around two different pyramids with apex angles of 60^o and 90^o. The pyramids were studied in flows with a zero yaw angle with respect to the incoming flow. The results of our simulations were compared with the existing experimental data, showing good results. Both time-averaged and instantaneous flows resulting from LES were investigated in detail and used to confirm or extend previous knowledge about flows around pyramids.
