The application of a dynamic global-coefficient subgrid-scale eddy-viscosity model for large-eddy simulation in complex geometries is presented. The model employs a dynamic procedure for closure of the subgrid-scale eddy-viscosity model developed by Vreman [Phys. Fluids 16, 3670 (2004)]. The model coefficient which is globally constant in space but varies in time is dynamically determined assuming the “global equilibrium” between the subgrid-scale dissipation and the viscous dissipation of which utilization was proposed by Park et al. [Phys. Fluids 18, 125109 (2006)]. Like the Vreman’s model with a fixed coefficient and the dynamic-coefficient model of Park et al., the present model predicts zero eddy-viscosity in regions where the vanishing eddy viscosity is theoretically expected. The present dynamic model is especially suitable for large-eddy simulation in complex geometries since it does not require any ad hoc spatial and temporal averaging or clipping of the model coefficient for numerical stabilization and requires only a single-level test filter.
