HurricaneHenry is on a distinguished road

which is the best turbulence model for modelling high swirl combustion chambers? Is the k-epsilon model suitable enough? The fluid flow has swirl factors from 1 to 10.

I would suggest you to use RSM. But I have seen some literatures proving k epsilon model to provide results very close to that of RSM (only for certain problems not always guaranteed). Its better to run RSM if computational cost is not an issue.
