Default turbulence model
Posts: n/a

I am making a simulation 3D airfoil with models S-A and K-e, as of them it is better? the results that I obtain are different, being the greater coefficients drag and lift for k-e than it means this.

I hope that they can help me

k-epsilon tends to "stick" more to the surface than K-omega bassed SST. I don't know about SAS model, but I would expect it to be superior of the both.

Ive done some test between k-e and SST on a circular cylinder. Have a look compared to vanDyke's book:
