 July 12, 2010, 03:31 Ansys 12, Fluent, SST Transition models #1 Member   B. Selenbas Join Date: Dec 2009 Posts: 37 Rep Power: 7 Hi, I'm working on a laminer-turbulence seperation problem and want to use the new transition models in Fluent (ansys 12) version. I could not find any guide that presents the related equations. Has anybody got any information about these new turbulence models? Thanks

You need to know that value from some documentation or Xfoil simulation gives the answer. All the best, NV

Upstream of transition the intermittency is zero. Once the transition occurs, the intermittency is ramped up to one until the fully turbulent boundary layer regime is achieved. All the best, NV

The recommended transition model is the Gamma Theta Model developed by Langtry and Menter, which has been developed for standard bypass transition and low free-stream turbulence. The full transition model is based on two transport equations, one for intermittency and one for the transition onset criteria in terms of momentum thickness Reynolds number. There are other choices in CFX as well. The CFX documentation says that this model has been widely validated.

 July 29, 2010, 12:04 #9 Senior Member   Join Date: Feb 2010 Posts: 145 Rep Power: 8 The FLUENT documentation states: The transition SST model is based on the coupling of the SST k-omega transport equations with two other transport equations, one for the intermittency and one for the transition onset criteria, in terms of the momentum thickness Reynolds number. An empirical correlation by Langtry and Menter has been developed to cover standard bypass transition as well as flows in low free-stream turbulence environments. It looks like the same SST transition model is available in CFX and FLUENT, which is not surprising. It looks like FLUENT also has another transition model available called the k-kl-omega transition model. It is considered to be a three-equation eddy-viscosity type, which includes transport equations for turbulent kinetic energy, laminar kinetic energy and the inverse turbulent time scale.
