Large-eddy-simulation-based analysis of Reynolds-stress budgets for a round impinging jet

Abstract : A large-eddy simulation is used to assess the Reynolds-stress budgets of a round impinging jet in the context of a second-moment closure of turbulence. The present work focuses on the stagnation region where no data are available in the literature except in the wall vicinity. Inside the stagnation region, it is shown that the pressure terms are dominant in the budgets. They balance the Reynolds-stress production and the convective fluxes. A visualization of this equilibrium through a specific indicator reveals that impingement effects extend to less than one nozzle diameter in the wall-normal direction and to about one diameter radially. This study underlines the role of the pressure diffusion term that conveys energy to the wall, balancing the high production rates (both positive or negative). Finally, the failure of turbulence models is explained by the absence of appropriate modeling of this pressure diffusion term leading to excessive Reynolds-stress values inside the impingement region.
