Tensor notation is used extensively throughout the textbook and

this course and is therefore briey reviewed before moving to a

discussion of the conservation equations for turbulent ows.

2.2 Navier-Stokes Equations for a Compressible Gas

The Navier-Stokes equations describing the ow of compressible

gases are a non-linear set of partial-dierential equations (PDEs)

governing the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy of the

gaseous motion. They consist of two scalar equations and one

vector equation for ve unknowns (dependent variables) in terms

of three independent variables, the postion vector, x or x

i

, and

time, t.

We will here review briey the Navier-Stokes equations for a

polytropic (calorically perfect) gas in both tensor and vector

notation. Integral forms of the equations will also be discussed.

2.2.2 Momentum Equation

The momentum equation is a vector equation that represents the

application of Newtons 2nd Law of Motion to the motion of a gas.

respectively, and

The energy equation is a scalar equation that represents the

application of 1st Law of Thermodynamics to the gaseous motion.

thermal energy). Using vector notation, it has the form

2.2 Navier-Stokes Equations for a Compressible Gas

The Navier-Stokes equations as given above are not complete

(closed). Additional information is required to relate pressure,

density, temperature, and energy, and the uid stress tensor,

ij

and heat ux vector, q

i

must be specied. The equation set is

completed by

thermodynamic relationships;

constitutive relations; and

expressions for transport coecients.

When seeking solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations for either

steady-state boundary value problems or unsteady initial boundary

value problems, boundary conditions will also be required to

complete the mathematical description.

In general, the transport coecients, and , are functions of

both pressure and temperature:

Expressions, such as Sutherlands Law can be used to determine

the dynamics viscosity as a function of temperature (i.e.,

2.3 Navier-Stokes Equations for an Incompressible Gas

For low ow Mach numbers (i.e., low subsonic ow, M<1/4), the

assumption that the gas behaves as an incompressible uid is

generally a good approximation. By assuming that

the density, , is constant;

temperature variations are small and unimportant such that

the energy equation can be neglected; and

the viscosity, , is constant;

one can arrive at the Navier-Stokes equations describing the ow

of incompressible uids.

2.4 Reynolds Averaging

As discussed previously, turbulent ow is characterized by irregular,

chaotic motion. The common approach to the modelling of

turbulence is to assume that the motion is random and adopt a

statistical treatment. Reynolds (1895) introduced the idea that the

turbulent ow velocity vector, u

i

, can be decomposed and

represented as a uctuation, u

i

, about a mean component, U

i

as

follows:

u

i

= U

i

+ u

i

Develop and solve conservation equations for the mean quantities

(i.e., the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations) and

incorporate the inuence of the uctuations on the mean ow via

turbulence modelling.

2.4.1 Forms of Reynolds Averaging

For ergodic random processes, these three forms of Reynolds

averaging will yield the same averages. This would be the case for

stationary, homogeneous, turbulent ows.

In this course and indeed in most turbulence modelling approaches,

time averaging will be considered. Note that Wilcox (2002) states

that Reynolds time averaging is a brutal simplication that loses

much of the information contained in the turbulence.

24

2.4 Reynolds Averaging

2.4.2 Reynolds Time Averaging

In Reynolds time averaging, all instantaneous ow quantities,

(x

i

, t) and a(x

i

, t), will be represented as a sum of mean and

uctuating components, (x

i

) and

(x

i

) and a

(x

respectively, such that

(x

(x

2.4 Reynolds Averaging

2.4.3 Separation of Time Scales

In practice, the time period for the averaging, T, is not innite but

very long relative to the time scales for the turbulent uctuations,

T

1

( i.e., T T

1

).

This denition of time averaging and T works well for stationary

(steady) ows. However, for non-stationary (unsteady ows), the

validity of the Reynolds time averaging procedure requires a strong

separation to time scales with

T

1

T T

2

where T

2

is the time scale for the variation of the mean.

2.6 Reynolds Turbulent Stresses and Closure Problem

2.6.1 Closure or RANS Equations

The Reynolds stresses

ij

= u

i

u

j

incorporate the eects of the unresolved turbulent uctuations

(i.e., unresolved by the mean ow equations and description) on

the mean ow. These apparent turbulent stresses signicantly

enhance momentum transport in the mean ow.

The Reynolds stress tensor,

ij

, is a symmetric equation

incorporating six (6) unknown or unspecied values. This leads to

a closure problem for the RANS equation set. Turbulence

modelling provides the necessary closure by allowing a means for

specifying

ij

in terms of mean ow solution quantities.

energy spectrum. The turbulent kinetic energy can be expressed as

where E() is the spectral distribution of turbulent energy,

is the wave number of the Fourier-like energy mode, and is the

wave length of the energy mode such that

2.9.2 Range of Turbulent Scales

The large-scale turbulent motion ( 0) contains most of the

turbulent kinetic energy, while most of the vorticity resides in the

small-scale turbulent motion ( 1/), where , the Kolmogorov

scale, is the smallest scale present in the turbulence.

The dissipation of the turbulence kinetic energy occurs at the

Kolmogorov scale and it follows from Kolmogorovs universal

equilibrium theory that

2.9.3 Kolmogorov -5/3 Law

Kolmogorov also hypothesize an intermediate range of turbulent

scales lying between the largest scales and smallest scales where

inertial eects dominate. He postulated that in this inertial

sub-range, E() only depends on and . Using dimensional

analysis he argued that

Although the Kolmogorov -5/3 Law is not of prime importance to

RANS-based turbulence models, it is of central importance to DNS

and LES calculations. Such simulations should be regarded with

skeptism if they fail to reproduce this result.

2.10 Two-Point Correlations

2.10.1 Two-Point Velocity Correlations

So far we have only considered single-point or one-point

correlations of uctuating quantities. Two-point correlations are

useful for characterizing turbulence and, in particular, the spatial

and temporal scales and non-local behaviour. They provide formal

denitions of the integral length and time scales characterizing the

large scale turbulent motions.

There are two forms of two-point correlations:

Both forms are based on Reynolds time averaging.

Taylors hypothesis which assumes that

2.11 Favre Time Averaging

2.11.1 Reynolds Time Averaging for Compressible Flows

If Reynolds time averaging is applied to the compressible form of

the Navier-Stokes equations, some diculties arise. In particular,

the original form of the equations is signicantly altered. To see

this, consider Reynolds averaging applied to the continuity

equation for compressible ow. Application of time-averaging to

the continuity equations yields

The introduction of high-order correlations involving the density

uctuations, such as

, can complicate the turbulence modelling

introducing an alternative time averaging procedure: Favre time

averaging, which is a mass weighted time averaging procedure.

It is quite evident that the Favre-averaging procedure has

recovered the original form of the continuity equation without

introducing additional high-order correlations.
