      TUT: add new tutorial case for turbulent inflow BCs · a31a0103
      Kutalmış Berçin authored
      The following three synthetic turbulence inflow boundary conditions are
      examined through single-cell-domain smooth-wall plane channel flow setup:
      - turbulentDFSEMInlet
      - turbulentDigitalFilterInlet variant=digitalFilter
      - turbulentDigitalFilterInlet variant=reducedDigitalFilter
      The examinations are performed in terms of the first-/second-order turbulence
      statistics provided by (Moser et al., (1999)) doi.org/10.1063/1.869966
      from smooth-wall plane channel flow direct numerical simulations at Re=395.

          Velocity boundary condition generating synthetic turbulence-alike
          time-series for LES and DES turbulent flow computations.
          To this end, two synthetic turbulence generators can be chosen:
          - Digital-filter method-based generator (DFM)
          Klein, M., Sadiki, A., and Janicka, J.
              A digital filter based generation of inflow data for spatially
              developing direct numerical or large eddy simulations,
              Journal of Computational Physics (2003) 186(2):652-665.
          - Forward-stepwise method-based generator (FSM)
          Xie, Z.-T., and Castro, I.
              Efficient generation of inflow conditions for large eddy simulation of
              street-scale flows, Flow, Turbulence and Combustion (2008) 81(3):449-470
          In DFM or FSM, a random number set (mostly white noise), and a group
          of target statistics (mostly mean flow, Reynolds stress tensor profiles and
          length-scale sets) are fused into a new number set (stochastic time-series,
          yet consisting of the statistics) by a chain of mathematical operations
          whose characteristics are designated by the target statistics, so that the
          realised statistics of the new sets could match the target.
          Random number sets ---->-|
                               DFM or FSM ---> New stochastic time-series consisting
                                   |           turbulence statistics
          Turbulence statistics ->-|
          The main difference between DFM and FSM is that the latter replaces the
          streamwise convolution summation in DFM by a simpler and a quantitatively
          justified equivalent procedure in order to reduce computational costs.
          Accordingly, the latter potentially brings resource advantages for
          computations involving relatively large length-scale sets and small

      CONTRIB: New adjoint optimisation and tools · 32b7d7c2
      Vaggelis Papoutsis authored
      A set of libraries and executables creating a workflow for performing
      gradient-based optimisation loops. The main executable (adjointOptimisationFoam)
      solves the flow (primal) equations, followed by the adjoint equations and,
      eventually, the computation of sensitivity derivatives.
      Current functionality supports the solution of the adjoint equations for
      incompressible turbulent flows, including the adjoint to the Spalart-Allmaras
      turbulence model and the adjoint to the nutUSpaldingWallFunction, [1], [2].
      Sensitivity derivatives are computed with respect to the normal displacement of
      boundary wall nodes/faces (the so-called sensitivity maps) following the
      Enhanced Surface Integrals (E-SI) formulation, [3].
      The software was developed by PCOpt/NTUA and FOSS GP, with contributions from
