Hello Foamers,

I have implemented and verified a new turbulence model in OpenFOAM. The Baseline-EARSM model, is an explicit algebraic Reynolds stress model and provides better converges than other non-linear stress-strain turbulence models in OF.

The model is implemented for the incompressible solver, and can be extend for the compressible solver in a straight-forward manner (similar to other standard Turbulence models). The source code, verification report, an example case and reference papers can be downloaded here,

The reference for this turbulence model is,
Menter, F. R., A. V. Garbaruk, and Y. Egorov. "Explicit algebraic Reynolds stress models for anisotropic wall-bounded flows." In Progress in Flight Physics, vol. 3, pp. 89-104. EDP Sciences, 2012.

Thanks Elbert for sharing your code.

It's indeed a much needed model. Just wondering if there's any reason it's implemented in OF 1.7?

Thanks for the code

Is someone using this model with a newer OpenFoam Version and could explain how to install it?

I get a lot of errors while using wmake libso for OF 2.30
