Turbulent thermal diffusivity

does anyone know an equation/a way to initialize the turbulent thermal diffusivity (alphat)?
For example, if I want to initialize its value at the inlet of a pipe with a known velocity.
In other words, how to initialize the turbulent thermal diffusivity (alphat)?
Is there a straightforward way?

I am also facing same doubt. Please can anyone shade some light on this???
Imagination is more important than knowledge..

I don't know what application you are running, but fireFoam has a file named alphaSgs (turbulent thermal diffusivity) under directory 0 in smallPoolFire2D tutorial.
Maybe it fits your need.
