I am running simulation on micro-scale model. The Re is really low (bout 50) so which turbulent model should I be using? Or should I just use None?

Thank you

When I was simulating microfluidic devices at low reynolds numbers I just left the turbulent model off.

Only put it on if you forsee having turbulent flow i.e. high reynolds numbers.
