Hybrid large-eddy type simulations for chevron nozzle jet flows are performed at Mach 0.9 and Re = 1.03 × 106. Without using any subgrid scale model (SGS), the numerical approach applied in the present study is essentially implicit large-eddy simulation (ILES). However, a Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) solution is patched into the near wall region. This makes the overall solution strategy hybrid RANS–ILES. The disparate turbulence length scales, implied by these different modeling approaches, are matched using a Hamilton–Jacobi equation. The complex geometry features of the chevron nozzles are fully meshed. With numerical fidelity in mind, high quality, hexahedral multi-block meshes of 12.5 × 106 cells are used. Despite the modest meshes, the novel RANS–ILES approach shows encouraging performance. Computed mean and second-order fluctuating quantities of the turbulent near field compare favorably with measurements. The radiated far-field sound is predicted using the Ffowcs Williams and Hawkings (FW–H) surface integral method. Encouraging agreement of the predicted far-field sound directivity and spectra with measurements is obtained.
