k epsilon model constants for specific application
 
Hi all.

I'm performing some simulations of a swirling flow in a cylinder. Although it's not the best model for such a flow, at first I'm using k epsilon model, and I'm considering if I should retain the usual default values for the model constants (and for wall functions as well). I guess that maybe another set of parameters should be used for this particular flow.

Can anyone suggest me where to look (books, papers, etc) in order to have a choice among different sets of parameters recommended for different specific flows?

Thanks in advance,

Flavio
