Résumé

A Large Eddy Simulation model is developed to simulate the hydrodynamics and scour process around a circular cylinder. The Navier-Stokes solver is based on the projection method and a second-order unstructured finite-volume method. A sigma-coordinate system is used to obtain an accurate representation of the evolution of the sediment-water interface. Bed erosion is simulated by solving the sediment continuity equation using a mass-conservating sand-slide algorithm and a bedload transport rate, which is based on a description of physical processes (Engelund & Fredsøe, 1976). Simulations of flow around a vertical cylinder for free-slip bed, rigid bed, and live-bed cases are done. The mean velocity profile and shear stress validate the accuracy of this model. Horseshoe vortex and lee-wake vortex shedding structure are simulated, and the results are thoroughly discussed in depth. The formation and the temporal development of the scour hole and other topographic bed features are successfully reproduced. The current paper reports the first known investigation of both scour evolution and coherent structure using large-eddy simulation.
