Partially-averaged Navier-Stokes (PANS) approach has been recently developed as a possible bridging model between Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) method and large-eddy simulations (LES). The resolution control parameters in PANS are the fractions of unresolved kinetic energy (fk) and unresolved dissipation (fε). We investigate the fixed-point behavior of PANS and present some preliminary results obtained using this model. By comparing the fixed-point behavior of PANS and URANS (unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes) methods, the possible advantage of the former over the latter is explained. Initial results from two-dimensional simulations of flow past square results are also presented.
