%X Flow turbulence modulation by dispersed solid particles in a bluff body was studied using two-way-coupled stochastic large eddy simulation. Point-force scheme was used to model the inertial particle back effects on the fluid motion. The fluid velocity field seen by inertial particles was stochastically constructed based on the filtered flow field obtained from well resolved large eddy simulations. For that purpose a Langevin-type diffusion process was used with the necessary modifications to account for particle inertia, cross-trajectory effects and the two-way coupling. The numerical results regarding mean and turbulence statistics for both phases show a very good agreement with the experimental findings for both light and heavy mass loadings (22% and 110% respectively). This numerical investigation demonstrates also the ability of the stochastic-LES-particle approach to predict turbulence modification by inertial particles.
