Total dynamic viscosity in turbulence models
I am doing a free surface simulation of a spillway, for which I worked out the value of ROUGH = 1.35m from the stricker-manning's corelation given in the Flow-3D manual, corresponding to Hydraulic Mean Depth of 2.5m.
I used a value of TLEN = 0.2m corresponding to 7% of 2.5m.
However, after running the simulation, the values of dynamic viscosity(max.) are in the range of 300-400 Pa-s (i.e 3x10^5 times viscosity of water).
I later tried reducing the value of TLEN, and found that a value of 5 mm limits the dynamic viscosity to 10 Pa-s. But this seems to have greatly underestimated the possible eddies that could be expected.
On the other hand, reducing the value of ROUGH to 0.2m and using TLEN =0.1m, resulted in a value of dynamic viscosity(max.) = 120 Pa-s.
I can't think of any further adjustments to ROUGH & TLEN.
Please suggest something.
