A oneequation turbulence transport model for high Reynolds number wallbounded flows
Abstract
A oneequation turbulence model that avoids the need for an algebraic length scale is derived from a simplified form of the standard kepsilon model equations. After calibration based on well established properties of the flow over a flat plate, predictions of several other flows are compared with experiment. The preliminary results presented indicate that the model has predictive and numerical properties of sufficient interest to merit further investigation and refinement. The oneequation model is also analyzed numerically and robust solution methods are presented.
