Turbulence transport models for numerical computation of complex turbulent flows
Abstract
Different approaches to describing the behavior of turbulence in mathematical form are reviewed, emphasizing the best available models for use in computing practically important two and three dimensional turbulent flows. The Reynolds form of the equations of motion is discussed, where the NavierStokes equations are averaged over a time scale which is long in comparison with all parts of the turbulent motion. The sole manifestations of turbulence in the resultant equations are the time averaged correlations between fluctuating velocity components. The schemes reviewed all fall into the category of single point closures.
