Large eddy simulation (LES) is reported for both smooth and rough-wall channel flows at resolutions for which the roughness is subgrid. The stretched vortex, subgrid-scale model is combined with an existing wall-model that calculates the local friction velocity dynamically while providing a Dirichlet-like slip velocity at a slightly raised wall. This wall model is presently extended to include the effects of subgrid wall roughness by the incorporation of the Hama's roughness function ΔU^+(k^+_(s∞)) that depends on some geometric roughness height k_(s∞) scaled in inner variables. Presently Colebrook's empirical roughness function is used but the model can utilize...
