Abstract

In this work a Discontinuos Galerkin (DG) solver for the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations has been extended to deal with the Reynolds-Averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) equations coupled with the k –ω turbulence model. A distinguishing feature of the method is the formulation of the inviscid interface numerical fluxes, based on an exact Riemann solver for the incompressible Euler equations with a relaxed incompressibility constraint. The turbulence model has been implemented in a non-standard way employing the variable logω instead of ω and enforcing the fulfilment of realizability conditions for the modeled turbulent stresses. The reliability, robustness and accuracy of the proposed implementation have been assessed by computing several turbulent test cases: (i) the flow past a flat plate for a Reynolds number Re=11.1×10^6 (ii) the flow around a NACA 0012 airfoil at different angles of attack 0°,10°,15° and Reynolds numbers 2.88×10^6 and 6.0×10^6 with comparisons with experimental and CFD benchmark data, and (iii) the flow through a rotating vertical axis wind turbine
