V2F Model
Hi all

Does anyone knows, how much does the licence for the V2F turbulence model cost?

Regards, Maged

P.S: I am a graduate student and I need this model for the research of my MSc thesis.

Re: V2F Model
Maybe you can a get free trial first, you should talk with your admin. We got one trial license (also at university) for three weeks, but V2F didn't work in my case.

Re: V2F Model
Dear Dirk

Thank you so much for your help. Have you tried to use the V2F model for the Jet-in-crossflow case? (I have read your previous message about "LES of Jet in crossflow") I am also conducting numerical simulation of a Jet-in-crossflow, but I don't have enough computational resources to perform LES, so I will compare the results of different RANS models like standard k-e, SST, RSM and maybe also V2F with experimental results. I am using PC with 3 GB processor and 2 GB of RAM, so I think the use of LES or DES will not be practicable for my case.

Your help and comments are highly appreciated.

Re: V2F Model
That's right, I used it for a JICF. But my duct flow was laminar and so I wanted to simulate separation and transition around the exiting jet. V2F couldn't do this properly, the other turbulence models by the way couldn't either. But I didn't test V2F in fully turbulent flow.

Re: V2F Model
I think you can do a les simulation for your case with about 2M cells (max). But it will be a little time consuming.
