 April 6, 2001, 11:30 Re: How define K and epslon for INLET? #3 Chinor Guest   Posts: n/a You need to specify inlet turbulence quantities. They are an essential part of defining a turbulent flow problem. k=1.5(U I)^2 U=local velocity magnitude I=turbulence intensity eps=[(Cmu^.75)*(k^1.5)] / l Cmu=0.09 (for standard k-eps model) k=turbulent kinetic energy l=turbulent length scale You can specify other inlet turbulence parameters in Fluent such as turbuelnt intensity & viscosity ratio. You are not limited to specifying k&eps. Chinor

If you have an internal flow, turbulence intensity and hydraulic diameter is your best choice. If you are soling an external flow, turbulence intesity and turbulence viscosity ratio is your best choice.
