Default k-epsilon?

I'm a bit new to the whole CFD thing. If I am using the k-epsilon model for viscosity, am I therefore using the RANS (Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes) equations in my solution? Is there something else that I need to specify besides the viscosity model that will cause my problem setup to be solved using the RANS equations?

Thanks in advance.

The k-epsilon model is based on the RANS approach.
