**Simulation Methods: **Development of simulation
methods for real turbulent flows: Continuous Eddy
Simulation (CES)

- mathematically consistent (continuous variations of modeled & resolved modes)

- continuously reliable, stably applicable up to huge Reynolds numbers

- applicable to
several basic problems (typical aerospace flows, wind energy mesoscale to microscale coupling)
