hi all
I am very new with turbulence flow analysis, I want to do turbulence analysis using fluent for naca0012 for 2d case, but I do not know which model can work good for my case. As there are three models on fluent solver for 2D which model can predict the flow nicely, can any one guide me how to start turbulence model for my case. plz also suggest me some papers where I can validate my results.

thanks all

For small angles (-5 ... +5 degree) you ca use Spalart-Allmars turbulence model ...
There is no silver bullet in turbulence modelling - each model is good for a limited range of flows - read Fluent's help (the turbulence chapter).
If you want a good book about using turbulence models you can try the book of Wilcox.
