Zonal modeling
Abstract
Zonal modeling is a particularly useful approach for a large range of engineering problems. Four flow situations were studied. Namely, strained homogenous flows, free shear layers, backward facing step and boundary layers. Zonal modeling can provide a single model as accurate as the known data. Nearly any common flow field can be constructed from something like 10 zones. Zonal modeling is a promising avenue for constructing predictive models of turbulent flows wherever the importance of the problem warrants construction of a model.
