A (kepsilon) model of turbulent flow
Abstract
A twoequation model of turbulence is employed where the transport of turbulence kinetic energy and the dissipation rate are depicted by transporttype equations, i.e., the twoequation model of turbulence. A finiteelement discretization of the (kepsilon) turbulence model is described that relies on the sequential approach in the solution. As in finitedifference procedures, velocity and pressure are uncoupled and the equations are solved one after the other, computing the magnitude of the turbulent viscosity from the turbulence kinetic energy and the dissipation rate.
