The Smagorinsky model could be summerised as:

$\tau _{ij} - \frac{1}{3}\tau _{kk} \delta _{ij} = - 2\left( {C_s \bar \Delta } \right)^2 \left| {\bar S} \right|S_{ij}$

In the Smagorinsky-Lilly model, the eddy-viscosity is modeled by

$\mu _{sgs} = \rho \left( {C_s \bar \Delta } \right)^2 \left| {\bar S} \right|$

Where the filter length is given by

$\bar \Delta = Vol ^{\frac{1}{3}}$

and

$\bar S = \sqrt {2S_{ij} S_{ij} }$

The effective viscosity is calculated from

$\mu _{eff} = \mu _{mol} + \mu _{sgs}$

The Smagorinsky constant usually has the value:

$C_s = 0.1 - 0.2$
