Default K-epsilon Solver
Posts: n/a
hello, I would like to know how to settled up the k and epsilone factors for the velocity inlet while I am using the K-epsilon solver. I am studying a Formula one rear wing, where I have U=75[m/s] From some lectures I had the following formulas: k=3/2(U.Ti) where Ti=5% which gave me: k=22[m2/s2] and epsilon=C(mu)^(3/2).k^(3/4)/0.07L where C(mu)=0.09 and I have: epsilon=730[m2/s3] I think my results are too big and I hope someone there can help me on this problem thanks Antoine

The epsilion is aproximately

eps= k^(3/2) / L
