K-Omega Model1 Attachment(s)
Hi All,
I am simulating incompressible turbulent flow over a flat plate using OpenFoam. I am doing RANS simulation and I have selected k-omega turbulence model. I want to get the profile of U+ vs. y+ and validate it with theory. For my simulation, I do not want to use any wall function and I am using pisoFoam transiet solver available in OpenFoam. my problem is that the convergence when not using wall function is so slow and I should use a very small time step for stable solution. has anyone else faced this convergence issue before?! Besides, I have some problems with steasy solver " simpleFoam ". I use the same fvSchemes and fvSolution as one exists in tutorial for k-omega sst model, but the solution will be wrong this way. Do you have any idea how I can find the right schemes for k-omega model for steady state simulation?! I have attached the B.C for my problem. Thanks, |

The solution should be steady after a while, therefore a steady solver like simpleFoam should be sufficient, except you want to simulate developing flow. The omega wall function is not a real wall function, it is a continuous wall function. You should probably use it for omega at the wall. Did you make sure your y+<1, since you are not using any wall functions? Additionally, if you use a cell gradient towards the wall, make sure that it is very smooth, such as an expansion/growth factor of 1.1 or 1.2. k-omega-SST in OF seems to be sensitive to this. |
