Results of a numerical simulation of turbulent heated sodium jet in a co-flow using a combined LES-DNS approach are presented. The calculations correspond to the experiment of Knebel, Krebs, Muller and Axcell . In agreement with the experimental results co-flow suppresses flow reversal along the outlet pipe wall. Comparisons of mean velocity, mean temperature, and temperature variance between experimental and numerical results show fairly good agreement. The results support the applicability of the combined LES-DNS approach for this type of flows. Simulations using this approach may complement experimental studies, allowing for better insight into the physical mechanisms of liquid metal turbulent heat transfer.
