Abstract
Affordable, high order simulations of turbulent flows on unstructured grids for very high Reynolds' number flows require wall models for efficiency. However, different wall models have different accuracy and stability properties. Here, we develop a kinetic energy stability estimate to investigate stability of wall model boundary conditions. Using this norm, two wall models are studied, a popular equilibrium stress wall model, which is found to be unstable and the dynamic slip wall model which is found to be stable. These results are extended to the discrete case using the Summation-by-parts (SBP) property of the discontinuous Galerkin method. Numerical tests show that while the equilibrium stress wall model is accurate but unstable, the dynamic slip wall model is inaccurate but stable. (C) 2021 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
