"Best Practice" RANS CFD guide/book?
I was wondering if anyone knows of any good best practice books for RANS based CFD. I have a fairly good understanding of aerodynamics and RANS modelling, so what I am looking for is more of an applied/practical guide rather than a discussion of theory.
The sort of thing I am looking for is:
-Pros/cons of different turbulence models
-Best practice for various canonical flows, e.g. how many points across LBL, TBL, in region of separation etc.
-Pros/cons of different solvers (e.g commonly used iterative solvers, spatial schemes)
-Boundary condition guidelines for different turbulence models and/or engineering flows
-Operational requirements of turbulence models (e.g. wall-function resolution requirements)
I realise that this sort of information can often be found on line, including this excellent website, but it would be really handy to have in a single book as a reference.
Thank you all in advance for any replies, all advice will be gratefully received!
There's something called the ERCOFTAC guidelines, which include turbulence models evaluations as well, check this link out:
maybe you could get your hands on that, there's certainly an evaluation of typical RANS models in it....
Thank you very much for your help! The ERCOFTAC guidelines look very close to what i'm after, I will certainly look into it but it's a shame it's so expensive. It's not often I wish I was still a student (it's cheaper then)!
