CHEN, X., ELLIS, C.D. and XIA, H., 2017. Unsteady heat and mass transfer of a blunt leading edge using hybrid LES-RANS. Presented at the 15th UK Heat Transfer Conference, Brunel University, London, 4-5th September.
A novel wall-proximity based hybrid LES-RANS approach has been applied for the study of a blunt leading edge flat plate with constant wall heat flux. The Reynolds number of the flow is about 10,200 based on half of the plate thickness. Results of the simulation are examined by comparing the velocity and heat transfer profiles with relevant measurements. Analysis has been carried out to study the relation between the unsteady flow features and the surface heat transfer.
