best turbulence model
hi all. i am investigating the flow separation over a 2D airfoil in ground effect. what would be the best turbulence model to use?

cheers, matt.

Re: best turbulence model
hi i study 5 turbulence models from which k-w,baldwin barth, spallart allmaras, i now beleived that spallart allmaras is the most suitable one for flow over airfoil from simplicity,and good result khairy-Egypt

Re: best turbulence model
Spallart Allmaras works very well for me, in a Turbine design. Allows convergence with Compressible flow, rotating components, v.high temperatures
