For turbulence modelling I have used a basic mixing length concept and it works. This turbulence model is a zero-equation model, so no additional equations shall be solved and I have no problem in solving the tridiagonal systems of equations. But k-epsilon model adds two other unknowns. I have no idea how to add these equations to my model. How can I descritize K-epsilon equations? How can I solve the new system of equations which includes 5 unknowns (water depth, velocities in two x and y directions,k and epsilon). Does someone have any idea or can somebody introduce a reference on the subject. Thank you   July 17, 2014, 11:57 #2 Senior Member   Join Date: Jul 2009 Posts: 335 Rep Power: 17 If you are currently solving your three equations with a block ADI solver, then simply extend the size of the blocks you use in the ADI solver. If you are solving your current equation set in a sequential fashion then you probably want to look for information on block ADI solvers. The basic formulation is a fairly straightforward extension of the single equation algorithm. kiamey likes this.   July 17, 2014, 18:13 #3

I use a simple thomas algorithm to solve the equations. Two equations (continuity and momentum in one direction) are solved in each half step.
I don't know what a block ADI solver is but by googling I assume it has something to do with parallel solving. Since I am not familiar with parallel solving I'd be happy to know where should I start from.

Is there a reasonable way to solve k-epsilon equations explicitly in each time step by some kind of iteration technique, or using block adi solver is the only answer?
