SST turbulence model and transition
Hi,
I would just like to confirm that when one sets the SST transitional turbulence to 'fully turbulent', the boundary layer is set to be entirely a turbulent boundary layer. I don't see this stated explicitly in the manual, so I was just wondering if someone could confirm this is true. Thanks 
Hi,
If you select the fully turbulent option, CFX will not solve the two extra transport equations, intermittency and transition Re, and it will act like other turbulence models, assuming flow is turbulent everywhere (except laminar sublayer, if you use enhanced wall treatment). I hope this answers your question. 
Difference in default SST and SST fully turbulence model

I have exactly the same question in mind. So having fully turbulence turned on under transitional turbulence of SST model is same as having a default SST turbulence model (without activating transitional turbulence option)  the twoequation eddyviscosity mode. Is this correct? Cheers Tom 
That is certainly the intention. I would check the modelled equations in the documentation to see if there is any mathematical difference however.
