Direct and Large Eddy Simulation (DLES) Workshops

The Institute of Fluid Mechanics (LSTM) is proud to host the 14th edition of the Workshop Series on Direct and Large Eddy Simulation (DLES) on April 10-12, 2024. Started in 1994, this biennial event focuses on cutting-edge methods for simulating turbulent flows, emphasizing the capture of instantaneous turbulent flow structures either in part or in its entirety. As computational capabilities expand, so does the significance of this approach, even for flows at higher Reynolds numbers. Hybrid modeling strategies that merge LES and RANS techniques, including in particular wall modelling for LES, also fall within the scope of the workshop.

The goal of the workshop is to establish a state-of-the-art of DNS, LES and related techniques for the computation and modelling of turbulent and transitional flows. The broad range of topics that the DLES-14 will focus on are (but not limited to):


  • Fundamentals and modeling of LES
  • Data assimilation and uncertainties quantification
  • Advanced computational methods and numerics
  • High-performance computing for turbulence
  • Heat and mass transfer and MHD
  • Multi-phase flows
  • Biological flows
  • Environmental and geophysical flows
  • Combustion and reactive flows
  • Industrial applications
