Hello everyone,
I am using SST (Gamma-Theta) Model for the simulation of my Cascade T106A.
I have the problem regarding to set my Turbulent Length Scale value.
By Default it is 1. How should i select this value?
Any formula for that?
Does it effect on my results?
Give your opinion....
Regards:
Chishty

Set the incoming and/or initial turbulence levels to match the experiments you are reproducing. The default is just a guessed value to give it a default value.

If you do not have experimental turbulence levels then your experimental conditions are not fully defined.

i am using FSTI=0.1 & 0.4
but can't specify the Turbulent Length Scale....
Any formula or theory for that, from where i can get that value....

As I now know you are using Fluent I can't tell you exactly which options to choose but I am sure Fluent has similar options to CFX. To get the equations to convert between turbulence intensity, energy, length scales etc get a decent turbulence textbook such as "Turbulence modelled for CFD" by Wilcox.
