Turbulence length scale and integral length scale
I have a question about turbulence length scale and integral length scale.
I am right now doing a CFD simulation about Wind Turbine by using CFX with kappa-Omega 2-Equation turbulence model. In order to specify the turbulence level at the inlet (about 20% turbulence intensity ), i need to give the value of turbulence length scale and turbulence kinetic energy. But, i just know the intergral length scale at the inlet which is equal the chord length of the blade. How can i convert the integral length scale into turbulence length scale.
Another method is that i can give the value of kinetic energy (kappa) and turbulence frequency (Omega). But, in order to calculate the omega, i need to know eddy viscosity ratio. Dose anyone know the eddy viscosity ratio of water at temperature 20° C?
Thank you very much
PS: i am using kappa-omega model and with very high turbulence level (20%)
Filter-based turbulence model (FBM)
The filter size is set to values which are smaller than the length scales returned by the conventional RANS models. Specifically, the level of the turbulent viscosity is corrected by comparing the turbulence length scale and the filter size Δ, which is based on the local meshing spacing:
μt_FBM= ((Cμ*ρm*k^2)/ε)*f_FBM with f_FBM= min(1,(∆.ε)/k^(3/2) )
my question is about the variables in CFX that can be introduced in place of ∆_present and ∆_grid
