Default turbulence modeling error at a stagnation point
Posts: n/a

I'm studying external aerodynamics of Ahmed Body car geometry. I have used realizable k-eps, SST k-omega and RSM models. in terms of drag coefficient I got similar values with all models. but all of them calculated nearly 1.5-2 times drag at the front of the body (comparing with the original experiments. Realizable k-epsilon has the highest drag on the front.

why does this happen? would you please help me about investigating the greater pressures at the front caused by turbulence modeling? I have to write a discussion about it. this is really important. thanks for you time.
