The article is concerned with the numerical simulation of the compressible turbulent flow in time dependent domains. The mathematical model of flow is represented by the system of non-stationary Reynolds- Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations. The motion of the domain occupied by the fluid is taken into account with the aid of the ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian) formulation of the RANS equations. This RANS system is equipped with two-equation k − ω turbulence model. These two systems of equations are solved separately. Discretization of the RANS system is carried out by the space-time discontinuous Galerkin method which is based on piecewise polynomial discontinuous approximation of the sought solution in space and in time. Discretization of the two-equation k − ω turbulence model is carried out by the implicit finite volume method, which is based on piecewise constant approximation of the sought solution. We present some numerical experiments to demonstrate the applicability of the method using own-developed code.
