This paper presents a systematic numerical investigation of different implicit large-eddy simulations (LESs) for massively separated flows. Three numerical schemes, a third-order accurate monotonic upwind scheme for scalar conservation laws (MUSCL) scheme, a fifth-order accurate MUSCL scheme, and a ninth-order accurate weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) method, are tested in the context of separation from a gently curved surface. The case considered here is a simple wall-bounded flow that consists of a channel with a hill-type curvature on the lower wall. The separation and reattachment locations, velocity, and Reynolds stress profiles are presented and compared against solutions from classical LES simulations.
