 April 3, 2003, 13:07 turbulent viscosity #1 Dave Roper Guest   Posts: n/a I often get a problem with 'turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.0 E+5' when using ke standard or ke RNG turbulence models. Have found ways of reducing it but don't really understand the fundamental reason why this occurs and what to do to eliminate it. Any one else know? Thanks.

Especially, whenever I used second order and higher accuracy schemes, I usually had this problem. In that case, at first, I reduced the under-relaxation factor until 0.1 (in some special or extreme cases). Secondly, used first order scheme for turbulence viscosity term. If this change is not working, please remesh your domain. There is no way. Fundamentals or background? I have no idea. Good luck. Kim.

 April 3, 2003, 21:39 Re: turbulent viscosity #3 Alex Munoz Guest   Posts: n/a HI Dave The turbulent viscosity ratio is telling you that there two adjancent cells with a high differences in velocity. Therefore, you should plot a contour of the turbulent viscosity ratio to identify the cells with the highest values. Then, adapt the mesh for these cells. Best regards Alex

It is especially efficient for euler-euler calculation with un a free surface (air-water for instance). Bye
