turbulence kinetic energy?
What is the formula to define the turbulence kinetic energy and turbulence dissipation rate? I am using the kepsilon and VOF model? Thanks for any suggestion.

Hi,
a good guess is: k = 1.5 * (U * TI)^2 [m^2/s^2] eps = Cmu^0.75 * (k^1.5 / (0.07 * L)) [m^2/s^3] where U is the average (reference) velocity [m/s] TI is the turbulent intensity which depends on the case (e.g. = 0.10 means turbulence that velocity turbulent fluctuations have an aplitude which is 10% of the average velocity) Cmu = 0.09 is a constant L is a characteristic dimension which depends on the case (e.g. tube diameter) [m] I hope this helps.
