Reynolds stress transport model with elliptic relaxation
The number of Reynolds Stress Transport Models implemented in OpenFOAM seems to be relatively small (only LRR and LaunderGibson as I know of). Both are high-Re formulation, i.e. wall functions should be used.
For my research, I need wall-resolved RSTM. Therefore, I implemented two formulations of RSTM with elliptic relaxations/blending, i.e.:
Durbin Elliptic Relaxation Model (Durbin1993)
Hanjalic Elliptic Blending Model (Manceau2002)
My colleague M. Wild reviewed the code, cleaned up the style, and made up a lot of improvements. Now, the code is hosted on github, together with a solver and an example case. The address is:
You can obtain them by:
git clone git://github.com/xiaoh/EllipticRSTM.git
More information please see the README and the code itself. Any feedback or improvement is appreciated!
