In October 2023, the GARTEUR AWARD for research was delivered to the Action Group AD-AG54 “RaLESin: RANS-LES Interfacing for Hybrid RANS-LES and Embedded LES”.
The general objective of the RaLESin project has been, to address the major problem associated to RANS-LES interface. Different approaches have been explored to enable effective scale-resolving simulations for typical flow phenomena of aeronautical applications.
The Action Group was made up by researchers coming from all GARTEUR countries plus contributions from Switzerland. Chairman of the Action Group is from FOI, Sweden.
Due to the absence of both chairman and vice-chairman of the AD-AG54, the presentation of the results to the very competent audience was carried out by P. Catalano, member of the Action Group, Ph. D. working at the Italian Aerospace Research Centre.
