Anna Tian is on a distinguished road

Has anyone tried the CFX transitional fluid model? Does this model work well from your experience?

I read the user manual of that model from the link below.

How reliable could this model be for a different wall geometry(not flat)?
Best regards,

It is quite good, there are many posts about it on the forum. It requires you to know a little about what you are modelling to get it accurate, it is not a model for beginners.

It was developed on airfoil sections and works best on airfoil shapes, but seems to give reasonable results on anything similar-ish.
