Abstract

A Direct Numerical Simulation is carried out to study a turbulent wake. The flow configuration is typical of grid turbulence investigations, but in place of a regular grid or fractal grid, the initially uniform flow passes through a three-dimensional, irregular yet statistically isotropic porous matrix. A synthetic, periodic, open cell metal foam of porosity ε = 0.92 is the geometry selected. The flow is at a Reynolds number based on the mean pore diameter dp and the freestream velocity U∞ of Redp = 4000. An approximation to homogeneous and isotropic decaying turbulence is achieved in the lee of the porous layer. Statistics reported include isotropy indicators, skewness, flatness, velocity autocorrelations, the integral scale of turbulence and compensated spectra. Dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy is calculated from its definition and from some known approximations based on different hypotheses, results extracted provide practical advice for experimentalists and give an insight in the isotropic features of the flow.
