You should look up the papers that are quoted in the documentation. You will not find these details here.

Hi Micheal,

In this regards, I would suggest you to read this Paper:

Steady-State Evaluation of 'Two-Equation' RANS (Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes) Turbulence Models for High-Reynolds Number Hydrodynamic Flow Simulations

you can find it in internet... I hope it will help.

best regards, houman
