Understanding The k-ω SST Model

Posted May 18, 2017 at 16:38 by Avr.Tomer

Florian Menter's k-ω SST is one of the most reliable and trusted RANS two-equation eddy-viscosity turbulence models for the simulation of attached boundary-layer flows with adverse pressure gradient, and also serves as first choice for hybrid RANS-LES DES by many.

The following taken from CFD ISRAEL blog (thoughts of a CFD blogger) is intended to give a short and thorough review of the main reasons for the k-ω SST*Model popularity.

Wind Tunnels and CFD

To many observers the rivalry between wind tunnels and CFD is a zero-sum game - as CFD matures it simply replaces wind tunnels. However, this is far from the truth. Often you'll find wind tunnels and CFD used together in a symbiotic process where one technique fills in knowledge gaps left by the other.
