Default [Hypersonic flows] turbulence models
Lionel S.
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I wonder if there exist good turbulence models for hypersonic flows. Mach 5 or 6 for example.

I've seen on the website of CFD++ developers that they performed computes at Mach 6 with a K-epsilon-Rt model, which is developed by Metacomp. Is it really reliable for hypersonic flows ? Is there some articles speaking about validity of k-epsilon in hypersonic flows ?

Thank you in advance
