Modeling instabilities using RANS?
i would appreciate greatly if anyone can respond to my question.
Lets say i am modelling von Karman vortex using RANS models. The geometry is symetric, so how a Rans model would be able to predict instability???
Instability=loss of symetry, and i cant see how a RANS model can predict this. They will always give a symetrical solution.
I had the same problem when modeling a turbulent flow in a pipe. I use unsteady solver, but when monitoring velocities, i see that when i have convergence, the velocity is constant at a given point (in respect to time)
Must we include perturbation to a RANS model so we can be able to break the symetry???
