First, I simulated the steady state using several turbulence model and compared these results with the test result, it's found that the k-w model got the best result and consumed lesser time. The question is, can we use the k-w model as the turbulence model for the transient flow analysis with moving grid. It's said the such model as SST can get the better result for the steady analysis, but will become very cumbersome and expensive for unsteady simulation, since it need to calculate the distance from the wall after each iteration. I'm not clear that if k-w also need to do that. Could somebody explain it ? Thanks very much.

It should not slow things down too much. Why don't you just try them both and see for yourself? Glenn Horrocks
