DOI: 10.2514/1.J052289 Reynolds-averaged turbulence models can result in large numerical error at flow discontinuities like shock waves. This is due to the nonconservative nature of the source terms in the governing equations. In this paper, the k-ϵ turbulence model is used to compute the canonical interaction of a normal shock with homogeneous isotropic turbulence. The characteristics of the nonconservative error is studied as a function of shock strength, grid resolution, and upstream turbulence level. The model equations are cast in an equivalent conservation form that gives physically consistent results at a shock wave. The predicted amplifications of turbulent kinetic energy and its dissipation rate match direct numerical simulation data and linear theory estimates over a range of Mach numbers.

Introduction

NTERACTION of shock wave with turbulent boundary layers is common in many high-speed flows. Examples include deflected control surfaces, supersonic and hypersonic inlet ducts, multibody aerodynamics, and wing–body junctions. Presence of strong shock waves causes boundary-layer separation, which can generate additional shocks and expansion waves. Shear-layer reattachment downstream of the shock interaction often leads to localized high pressure and heat flux to the vehicle surface. A separation bubble inside an inlet duct acts as a blockage to the flow and can cause unstart. Accurate numerical prediction of shock–boundary-layer interaction (SBLI) flows is a challenging task, especially in the presence of strong shock waves. Several research efforts [1–4] have

been directed toward this goal. See [5,6] for a comprehensive survey of previous work. The interaction of turbulent fluctuations in the boundary layer with the shock wave lies at the heart of these phenomena. Shock– turbulence interaction has therefore been the focus of several studies, some of which are discussed next. Homogeneous isotropic turbulence passing through a normal shock is possibly the most fundamental shock–turbulence interaction. The mean flow is onedimensional and steady and is therefore uniform upstream and downstream of the shock wave. The jump in the mean flow quantities across the shock is governed by the Rankine–Hugoniot relations. Compared to shock–boundary-layer interaction, the model problem does not have additional complexity due to the flow separation, streamline curvature, and boundary-layer velocity gradients. Shock-homogeneous turbulence interaction has been extensively studied using direct numerical simulation (DNS) [7–10]. This canonical interaction is also amenable to theoretical analysis using rapid distortion theory [11,12] and linear interaction analysis [13,14]. Some limited experimental data are also available in the literature [15]. In spite of the geometrical simplicity, the model problem exhibits a range of physical effects, like generation of acoustic waves, baroclinic torques, and unsteady shock oscillations. Physical insight obtained in this canonical problem has proved useful in developing advanced turbulence models for shock–turbulence interaction [16–18]. Figure 1, reproduced from [18] with permission shows the variation of turbulent kinetic energy k as homogeneous isotropic turbulence interacts with a nominally normal shock wave. Here, x is the shock-normal direction, and the shock is located at x 3. The mean flow Mach number upstream of the shock is 1.5, the turbulent Mach number is 0.17, and the Reynolds number based on Taylor microscale is 6.7. The data correspond to the DNS of Jamme et al. [9], where the incoming turbulence field is primarily composed of vortical fluctuations. The magnitude of thermodynamic fluctuations is relatively small. The turbulent kinetic energy plotted in Fig. 1 is normalized by its value immediately upstream of the shock. A characteristic length of 2λ is used for normalizing the shock-normal distance, where λ is the Taylor microscale in the incoming turbulent flow. In the absence of mean velocity gradient upstream of the shock, the turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) decays from its inlet value. There is an increase in turbulence level across the shock, followed by further decay in the downstream flow. An amplification of the turbulent dissipation rate at the shock results in a faster decay of TKE behind the shock wave. Large values of turbulent kinetic energy are reported in the vicinity of the shock wave. These are artifacts of the unsteady shock oscillation, and they do not represent turbulent fluctuations [8]. Computation of the test case using Reynolds-averaged Navier– Stokes (RANS) equations is also presented in the figure. The RANS approach computes the mean flowfield and includes the effect of

See [18] for additional details. and the k-ϵ model with μT 0 can be analytically integrated across the shock if the effect of turbulent dissipation is neglected in the region of the shock wave. It tends to saturate to a value close to 2 for high-Mach-number interactions.aiaa. The k amplification is close to unity for weak shock waves (M → 1) and increases with shock strength.

This is. is subsequently described. the CFD solutions of these k-ϵ models should approach their respective exact integration limits as the grid is progressively refined. The second term in each equation represents turbulent dissipation and determines the decay rate of turbulence on either side of the shock wave. As noted earlier. we systematically study the numerical characteristics of the k-ϵ solution for canonical shock/turbulence interaction. Results are also presented for varying upstream values of the turbulence variables. and it decreases as the grid-point density at the shock is increased. the error can amplify on fine grids to yield unrealistic values of k and ϵ at the shock. The dissipation effect therefore decreases as the shock gets thinner on successive grid refinement. The eddy viscosity is set to zero in 0 is used to model the damping Eq.

Governing Equations In this section. (5) and (6) represent the evolution of k and ϵ in the shock-normal direction. Effect of grid refinement on k and ϵ amplification at the shock is quantified. This is due to an amplification in enstrophy that contributes to the solenoidal dissipation rate. A finite-volume-based CFD code is used for the simulations. The first term results in turbulence amplification at the shock. Further. The turbulent dissipation terms cause reduction in k and ϵ at the shock wave.

This often results in nonphysical trends in k and ϵ amplification with successive grid refinement. Higherorder reconstruction is achieved by using the MUSCL approach. the overbar on ρ is dropped to avoid potential conflict with the sign of the exponent. The inviscid fluxes are computed with a modified. and the convective term on the left-hand side is conservative. B. The development of the k-ϵ equations presented previously can be easily extended to the k-ω model. It can therefore be transformed to an equivalent conservative form Eq. (5) and (6).
