 November 11, 2000, 02:23 Reynolds Stress equation ??? #1 Abhijit Tilak Guest   Posts: n/a hi everybody my question is regarding Reynolds stress equation. Anyone who has tried deriving RS-equation and hence k and e equation in k-e turbulence model, knows that in order to get the equation in the desired form, the manipulation of the derivative terms (especially the convective terms) requires density to be assumed as constant. Otherwise u will have 6 more terms for u'rho'. I tried deriving the equation in conservative form but could'nt get any where without those assumptions (Note that most of the books derive RS equation in non-conservative form). My question is can this have serious implications in variable density /compressible flows? What is to be done if i want to retain the conservative form? thanx in advance Abhijit Tilak

In that book, for two dimensional,incompressible flow, reynolds equations of motion derivation given. Hope, your problem will be solved. bye............

 November 15, 2000, 07:01 Re: Reynolds Stress equation ??? #5 sylvain Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Fluctuations of density (rho') are often neglicted even for compressible flow, since the turbulence mach number (sqrt(k)/c - where c is the speed of the sound) is low (<0.2). To derive a turbulence model for compressible flow, you should use the Favre averaging method : $\tilde{\phi}= \frac{\overlined{\rho \phi}}{{\overlined{\rho}}$ where $\overlined{\phi}$ is the Reynolds average of $\phi$ You should look for papers from Sarkar or Mansour or Launder in the JFM (years 1990-1996).
