Hi

I have recently written code for solving 2-D Lid Driven Cavity using SIMPLE algorithm and Finite Volume Method discretisation for the Laminar case.

Now I want to solve the same problem for turbulence case. can somebody guide me and tell me the Governing equations in 2-d and how to model that using standard k-e model.how many turbulent stress terms need to be modelled in RANS equation.

Thank You

Rajesh

For incompressible turbulent flows your equations will be basically the same, except for the viscosity which is composed by the sum of laminar and turbulent viscosity. Google for Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes equation, or use this link:

Thank You. Mr. DoHander

In 2D RANS equations there are three unknown Reynolds Stress terms.Is it necessary to model each three terms or just model the rho*u'v' term.

Thanks

Rajesh

Use the Boussinesq approximation (this will reduce the number of Reynolds stresses) and the ke turbulence model.

Check this book (second edition), you will find the equation you need:

After using Boussinesq approximationin x-momentum equation equation
changes are as given below
  1. meu_laminar is changes to (meu_laminar+meu_turbulent)
  2. u and v is relaced by U and V
  3. Extra term is generated -(2/3)*rho*k
How to model the extra model term -(2/3)*rho*k. Should I treat this term like the pressure difference term in momentum equation.

In the Pletcher book final equation after putting boussinesq equation is not given.

Thanks
Rajesh
