Large eddy simulations over a NACA65 compressor cascade with roughness were performed for multiple roughness heights. The experiments show flow separation as airfoil roughness is increased. In LES computations, surface roughness was represented by regularly arranged discrete elements using guidelines from Schlichting. Results from wall-resolved LES indicate that specifying an equivalent sandgrain roughness height larger than the one in experiments is required to reproduce the same effects observed in experiments. This highlights the persisting uncertainty with matching the experimental roughness geometry in LES computations, pointing towards surface imaging and digitization as a potential solution. Some initial analysis of flow physics has been conducted with the aim of guiding the RANS modeling for roughness.
