Abstract

We present a novel development of a domain decomposition method for the Navier-Stokes equations in a spectral element formulation which enables to investigate turbulent flows in complex geometries. The current paper applies domain decomposition method to simulate turbulent heat transfer in a wire-wrapped fuel pin assembly. The method is first validated on a benchmark problem of a turbulent swept flow over a single wire in a channel. Potential application of the method to simulation of a realistic wire-wrapped assemblies is the discussed.
