Unsteady simulations in train aerodynamics
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2014
This paper presents the present status of unsteady simulations in train aerodynamics. The approaches range from large-eddy simulation, hybrid RANS-LES in the form of detached-eddy simulations and partially-averaged Navier-Stokes to unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes. Use of a hybrid technique called partially-averaged Navier-Stokes is discussed. Applications of different techniques are illustrated with examples from predictions of flows around generic train vehicles. Numerical prediction of crosswind stability and flow control of train-like vehicles is discussed.
