Hej,
I was wondering why the implementation of the RNG kepsilon model in OpenFOAM looks so much different from the implementation of the standard kepsilon model? Even the kequation looks different, even though that one should be the same. kequation standard keps: Code:
tmp<fvScalarMatrix> kEqn ( fvm::ddt(k_) + fvm::div(phi_, k_)  fvm::Sp(fvc::div(phi_), k_) // missing from the kequation of RNG  fvm::laplacian(DkEff(), k_) == G  fvm::Sp(epsilon_/k_, k_) ); Code:
tmp<fvScalarMatrix> kEqn ( fvm::ddt(k_) + fvm::div(phi_, k_)  fvm::laplacian(DkEff(), k_) == G  fvm::Sp(epsilon_/k_, k_) ); epsequation RNG Code:
// Dissipation equation tmp<fvScalarMatrix> epsEqn ( fvm::ddt(epsilon_) + fvm::div(phi_, epsilon_)  fvm::laplacian(DepsilonEff(), epsilon_) // I expect another term here == (C1_  R)*G*epsilon_/k_ // why is the term R, which is part of the changed C_eps2 constant subtracted from C_eps1 // fvm::SuSp(R*G/k_, epsilon_)  fvm::Sp(C2_*epsilon_/k_, epsilon_) // C2 is a constant here, even though it should be a function of the strainrate tensor );
