I got the following variables for the velocities as outputs: 1. Statistical Reynolds Stress uu 2. Statistical Reynolds Stress uv 3. Statistical Reynolds Stress uw 4. Statistical Reynolds Stress vv 5. Statistical Reynolds Stress vw 6. Statistical Reynolds Stress ww 7. Velocity Correlation uu 8. Velocity Correlation uu.Trnavg 9. Velocity Correlation uv 10. Velocity Correlation uv.Trnavg 11. Velocity Correlation uw 12. Velocity Correlation uw.Trnavg 13. Velocity Correlation vv 14. Velocity Correlation uw.Trnavg 15. Velocity Correlation vv 16. Velocity Correlation vv.Trnavg 17. Velocity Correlation uw 18. Velocity Correlation vw.Trnavg 19. Velocity Correlation ww 20. Velocity Correlation ww.Trnavg 21. Velocity 22. Velocity.Trnavg 23. Velocity x 24. Velocity.Trnavg x 25. Velocity y 26. Velocity.Trnavg y 27. Velocity z 28. Velocity.Trnavg z V (full field , instantaneous) = resolved Velocity+ unresolved (V’). 1- Does the Velocity # 21 above represent full field velocity and (Velocity.Trnavg # 22) represent resolved part? If so, unresolved (V’)= Velocity- Velocity.Trnavg)? is V’ represent rms velocity? 2- Is “Statistical Reynolds Stress” represent unresolved part and can I calculate rms V’ by taking square-root of Statistical Reynolds Stress variable? If so, what is the difference between V’ that was calculated in question 1 and V’ from Statistical Reynolds Stress? 3- To calculate the mean flow kinetic energy, is it correct to use Kmean =0.5(Velocity Correlation uu.Trnavg+ Velocity Correlation uvv.Trnavg+ Velocity Correlation ww.Trnavg). 4- How to calculate the turbulent kinetic energy from the contribution of both resolved and unresolved parts, Kt= Kres+Kmod ? 5- What is the good metric for presenting turbulence strength? Turbulence eddy viscosity ratio or TKE? Thank you so much in advance,,, Mazze[ITA] likes this.

Sorry but I think your question is for experts in CFX
