For many flows it is not appropriate to use RANS, since the turbulent part can be very large and of the same order as the mean. Examples are unsteady flow in general, wake flows or flows with large separation. For this type of flows, it is more appropriate to use Large Eddy Simulation (LES). In order to extend LES to high Reynolds number flows new methods have recently been developed. These are called DES (Detached Eddy Simulation), URANS (Unsteady RANS), PITM (Partially Integrated Transport Model), PANS (Partially Averaged Navier-Stokes.
