Application of Second Moment Closure Models to Complex Flows: Part I—Wall Bounded Flows
This paper reports the application of Reynolds Stress models to predict turbulent channel flow. Three pressure-strain models and three turbulent diffusion models are utilized in the computations. Most, although not all, features of the mean velocity, turbulent kinetic energy and Reynolds stress profiles were captured by the Reynolds stress models. The extent of the relaxation towards isotropy near the centerline of the channel was not reproduced by any of the models.
