In this study, a wall-resolved simulation is performed, using a bulk Reynolds number of 20,000 and a rotation number of 0.45. The wall-resolved computation is harnessed to a priori test the wall-modeling strategy based on the RANS/LES grid decoupling proposed by Kawai and Larsson. The standard formulation is found to be unable to adapt to the rotation effects on wall shear stresses, which motivates modifying the expression of the eddy viscosity in the wall-model. A rotation correction, adopted from previous work in the RANS framework is proposed and tested against the wall-resolved reference data. The correction is found to significantly improve the shear stress prediction in the wall-modeled LES, and largely reduce the wall-model layer thickness dependency in the results.
