LES and PANS of turbulent flow through a staggered tube bundle
Paper in proceedings, 2017

Two unsteady numerical techniques, Partially-Averaged Navier Stokes (PANS) and Large Eddy Simulation (LES), are used to predict the flow in a tube bundle. The results were compared with the existing experimental data. Both methods predicted the flow in a relatively good agreement with the experimental data although the PANS simulation used only fifty percent of the computational nodes compared to the LES. The results of the simulations are used to study the unsteadiness in the flow and identify a dominant frequency of the flow.
