## Transport equations for standard k-epsilon model

For k

For dissipation

## Modeling turbulent viscosity

Turbulent viscosity is modelled as:

## Production of k

Where is the modulus of the mean rate-of-strain tensor, defined as :

## Effect of buoyancy

where Pr_{t} is the turbulent Prandtl number for energy and g_{i} is the component of the gravitational vector in the ith direction. For the standard and realizable - models, the default value of Pr_{t} is 0.85.

The coefficient of thermal expansion, , is defined as
