The purpose of this Lecture Series proceedings is to offer a full overview of the present development and the potential of the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of turbulent flows. The first part of the course notes introduce and discuss fundamental principles and state-of-the-art applications. The specific numerical problems related to the implementation of LES are presented. The second part deals with applications of these approaches to various engineering fields of wide interest.

Subsequently, the course notes discuss the possible developments of LES and Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) which represents the most promising technique to extend the usefulness of LES for high Reynolds-number flows.

The course notes are written by internationally recognized experts. Its content is addressed both to researchers interested in the fundamental simulation of turbulence and engineers wanting to apply the LES technique or LES solvers to the accurate simulations of turbulent flows.

The Lecture Series directors are U. Piomelli (Queen’s University), C. Benocci (VKI) and J.P.A.J. van Beeck (vKI)
