Help with calculating turbulence parameters!Evening all,
I'm trying to calculate the boundary turbulence parameters for a case. I am modelling a flat plate (0.76m x 0.406m) with two strakes on to generate vortices. From experimental data I know the turbulence intensity is 2% and I have set the turbulent length scale to be 7% of the plate width (0.028m). I have also assumed in the calcs below that the mean flow velocity is the freestream value of 53.6m/s (not sure if this is correct or not). Using the calculation in the fluent manual (http://combust.hit.edu.cn:8080/fluen....htm#ke-params) I find the following values: Turbulent kinetic energy: 1.723776 Turbulent viscosity ratio: 1354.598 Dissipation Rate: 13.08516 From this I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong as I was expecting the turbulent viscosity ratio to be below 10! Can anyone please offer me some advice on this as I'm completely at a loss as to what I've assumed wrong to make the calculations give such wrong numbers. Any help is very much appreciated. Many thanks Dan |
