k - omega SST turbulence model with wall functions
Hello to all,
Recently I have been reading a lot about Menter's k-omega SST turbulence model to be able to get more conscious with its usage. I found out that it has very well improved formulations for near-wall flows, when grid resolution is adequate in this region. However i couldn't get to understand the following issues:
- Does this model still have improved skills over the k-epsilon model, when i have a coarse near-wall mesh?
- Menter's k-omega model is said to switch between k-epsilon and k-omega, in free-stream region and near-wall region, respectively. So, if i have for example a y+>30 mesh near-wall, does this switching take place? If it does, how? Because i think wall functions already handle closest cells near wall.
- I guess the SST formulation isn't activated in coarse near-wall meshes, is it true?
Thanks in advance.
