The influence of the non-resolved scales of thermal radiation in large eddy simulation of turbulent flows: A fundamental study

Abstract : The filtered radiative transfer equation has been solved without subgrid-scale model and compared to a-priori estimations from direct numerical simulation of statistically stationary homogeneous isotropic turbulence. The importance of the large eddy simulation non-resolved scales on the thermal radiation is analysed in this academic case. The influence of the mean and variance of temperature of the system on the subgrid-scale correlations is studied. It is shown that the turbulence-radiation interaction (TRI) is greater for low-temperature flows, where the radiative transfer is lower. Moreover, the strongest sub-grid-scale correlations, which are the temperature self-correlation and the absorption coefficient-temperature correlation, have opposite effects, which suggests that it is better to neglect both correlations, instead of modelling only one. Therefore, the assumption of neglecting the TRI in LES leads to good predictions. Three-dimensional filtering effects, as well as the grid influence on non-local quantities, such as the radiation intensity, are also analysed. These effects have a local influence, but are negligible in the tested cases.
