IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

A novel iles/vof solver for the simulation of turbulent free surface flows
Author : Peter D M Brady
A new Implicit Large Eddy Simulation Computational Fluid Dynamics algorithm for the simulation of turbulent flows in the presence of a free surface was developed and validated. The unsteady solver computes the motion of the free surface and surrounding fluid with sufficient accuracy yet without the exorbitant requirements of a Direct Numerical Simulation. The validation study was the simulation of the flow around a right circular cylinder that pierced a free surface. The Reynolds number investigated was 27x103, with a corresponding Froude number, based on the cylinder diameter, of 0.75. In clear contrast to a recently published LES simulation, the shape of the free surface was correctly simulated while a spectral analysis indicated, somewhat surprisingly, that the turbulent cascade was being correctly simulated beyond the grid scale, which is a confirmation that the ILES solver is computing the subgrid-scale turbulence.
