In this paper, the ability of two RANS-based turbulence models, the standard k-ω and the k-ω sst (shear-stress-transport formulation), in predicting flutter derivatives of elongated rectangular prisms with different aspect ratios is investigated. Strengths and limitations of the employed methodology are highlighted via comparisons with available experimental results, aiming at identifying some operative indications for choosing a suitable modeling approach (not much time-consuming and suitably accurate), useful for engineers facing the aerodynamic design of bridge structures. The influence of discrepancies among experimental measurements and RANS-based numerical results on the aeroelastic stability of bridge-like structures is also discussed.

Abstract

In this paper, the ability of two RANS-based turbulence models, the standard k-ω and the k-ω sst (shear-stress-transport formulation), in predicting flutter derivatives of elongated rectangular prisms with different aspect ratios is investigated. Strengths and limitations of the employed methodology are highlighted via comparisons with available experimental results, aiming at identifying some operative indications for choosing a suitable modeling approach (not much time-consuming and suitably accurate), useful for engineers facing the aerodynamic design of bridge structures. The influence of discrepancies among experimental measurements and RANS-based numerical results on the aeroelastic stability of bridge-like structures is also discussed.
