FEATURE: TinF for pipe flow
« on: May 23, 2021, 04:30:10 PM »
In the SEM method, the theory and algorithm both are related to the spanwise width (Lz). Is it possible for the present TinF to generate a turbulent inlet for pipe flow?

Yes, it should be possible to employ the synthetic eddy method in TInF to reproduce an inflow turbulence for pipe flow. In this case, it is suggested to specify the characteristics (i.e., mean velocity, Reynolds stress tensor and integral length scale) of the targeted turbulence in a pipe (based on which the synthetic turbulence will be generated) through the face interpolation approach (more details can be found in the documentation).

We will strive to put an example in github this week. I will add a message when that has been posted.
