The article gives an overview of the Scale-Adaptive Simulation (SAS) method developed by the authors during the last years. The motivation for the formulation of the SAS method is given and a detailed explanation of the underlying ideas is presented. The derivation of the high-Reynolds number form of the equations as well as the calibration of the constants is provided. The concept of SAS is explained using several generic examples and test cases. In a companion article, the model is applied to more complex industrial-type applications.
