CaSToRC, the HPC National Competence Centre,
invites you to the EuroCC and SimEA Seminar Series
The talk will focus on the flow physics of compressible turbulent flows over rough and porous walls. In the first part of the seminar, we will present pore-resolved direct numerical simulations (DNS) of turbulent flows over perforated plates, which are representative of the acoustic liners found on aircraft engines, figure 1(a). We will focus on the aerodynamic drag induced by acoustic liners, and their similarities and differences with rough surfaces. In particular, we will show that acoustic liners can be regarded as porous surfaces, and in operating conditions they work in the fully rough regime.
In the second part of the talk, we will analyse the flow physics of supersonic turbulent flows over rough walls (figure 1b), which are typical of heat shields of high-speed vehicles. Using results of recent DNS, we will discuss compressibility effects on added drag and heat transfer, which have relevant implications for modeling of turbulent high-speed flows.

About the Speaker
Davide Modesti is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology. He received his PhD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from La Sapienza Università di Roma in 2017, where he carried out direct numerical simulations (DNS) of compressible wall-bounded flows at high Reynolds number.
After completing his PhD, he has been a Research Fellow at DynFluid laboratory in Paris and at the University of Melbourne, before joining TU Delft in 2020. His research focuses on high-fidelity simulations of compressible wall-bounded turbulent flows, and on the development of numerical methods for computational fluid dynamics.
