Realizable and Standard K-E Difference
I am wondering if anyone can point me to a reference or could explain to me the main differences between the realizable and the standard k-epsilon model, in respect of modelling a two dimensional mixing elbow as is available in the Fluent tutorial.
And in your personal opinion which you would recommend and why?
Re: Realizable and Standard K-E Difference
Here is the reference of the people that made the model:
SHIH, T-H., LIOU, W. W., SHABBIR, A., YANG, Z. ZHU, J. 1995. A new k-e eddy viscosity model for high Reynolds number turbulent flows. Computers & fluids. 24: 227-238.
Here is a reference of an application of the model:
CHAN, T. L., DONG, G., LEUNG, C. W., CHEUNG, C. S. and HUNG, W. T. 2002. Validation of a two-dimensional pollutant dispersion model in an isolated street canyon. Atmospheric environment. 36: 861-872.
I've found that the realizable ke has slightly more agreeable results than ske and takes about the same amount of time for iteration (compared to RNG). I think the main difference is that the eddy viscosity coefficient is calculated rather than used from a constant.
Hope this helps.
