The journal JMSE (Journal of Marine Science and Engineering) is currently running a Special Issue entitled “Large Eddy Simulation and Turbulence Modeling”

Dear Colleagues,

Computational power has been improved over last decades; therefore, complex flow modeling phenomena using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has become more feasible. Furthermore, the improvement of computational power is expected to continue and will serve to progress in the CFD modeling capabilities. The role of turbulence is essential to the understanding, prediction and improvement of complex flows. In fact, turbulence is vital to the proper operation of many industrial applications. LES is typically computationally less expensive than Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) and, of course, computationally more expensive than Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) models. However, thanks to the current advances in computational power, large grids and therefore LES for complex engineering flows have become feasible and very useful.

With this purpose the journal JMSE (Journal of Marine Science and Engineering, ISSN 2077-1312) is currently running a Special Issue entitled “Large Eddy Simulation and Turbulence Modeling” in order to collect the last advanced of the application of the aforementioned numerical techniques to the study of technology related to the harnessing of renewable energy in the marine environment.

All the contributions in the field are welcome and we would appreciate receiving your submission. Please, visit the site for further information:
