Dear CFD experts, many of you know that in the framework of the Reynolds approach, it is impossible to build a correct mathematical model of turbulence! The Reynolds approach is based on two hypotheses:
1) the velocity in a turbulent flow consists of averaged and fluctuating velocities; 2) the applicability of the NavierStokes equation for the description of turbulent flow. These conditions are not sufficient to obtain a closed system of equations. Therefore, a different approach is needed, which leads to a closed system of equations. This approach is presented in the Mathematical Model of Turbulence Based on the Dynamics of Two Fluids. The work can be found here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...470?via%3Dihub (if you need the original article, I can throw it in a personal) Thus, I would like to know your opinions on this turbulence model, and I would also like you to test it on your problems in the calculations of aerodynamics. Thank you!

I'm not here to discredit anyone that attempts to develop a new turbulence model but:
Any turbulence modeling approach that utilizes a transport equation to provide an eddy viscosity can be conceptually reimagined as the flow of a homogeneous mixture of two fluids. This notsonovel twofluid approach that you are really excited about is therefore equivalent to a typical oneequation turbulence model. Nothing is being overturned. Let's say this is the one model that will rule them all. It will go down in history as the one equation Malikov model. That is, not SpalartAlmaras or Prandtl, but a one equation turbulence model nonetheless.

You might try to present the work at the ISPRASopen conference, which will be in December in Moscow.

There are some technical aspects of the paper that, in my opinion, signal some warning.
Besides this, however, it seems to be a 3 eq. model. I was not aware of this class of models, nor I had time to look at the references, so I can't say anything of its novelty. My main concern, however, is about implementation details. If I am ever going to implement a model I need to know exactly how bcs (including wall functions) and implicit source term treatment work. But none of these are treated in a sufficiently clear manner (or at all). Actually, the employed numerical method seems pretty specific for this model instead of, say, a classical cell centered unstructured fv approach. In addition, if I understood correctly, there is a 3x3 eigenvalue problem to be solved at each cell and iteration. This, with the 3 eqs, makes it really costy. Finally, there is not much comparison with other models (like at all) that could trigger any will to actually implement it. Probably, a comparison with other 3 eq. models would be more appropriate.

The finite volume method for the new model is used in the same way as for all known RANS models. As for the use of the function on the wall, it is discussed in the first original work. The issue is raised that the search for eigenvalues can be expensive. In fact, there is nothing complicated there. In twodimensional problems for the eigenvalues we will have a quadratic equation, and for threedimensional problems it is necessary to solve the cubic equation λ3+aλ+b=0, for which there is an analytical solution of Cardano or Vieta. Now the question is about comparing the new model with other wellknown RANS models. To date, a comparison has been made for many hydrodynamic problems. Below is a link to the works where these comparisons are made. These works show that the accuracy of the new model is significantly higher than that of other models and is universal. In addition, it is able to adequately describe anisotropic turbulence. Another advantage of the new model is that it has good stability, i.e. acceptable results can be obtained using a coarse computational grid, and it is also possible to integrate the system of equations with significantly larger time steps than using, for example, models such as SA, SST or SSG. 1.

Look, I don't know if you are the author of the model or not. In any case, while I definitely have some issues with the technical side of the papers, it wasn't my intention to express any judgement on that (and indeed I took those issues for myself). Also, I can't speak of the novelty, because I wasn't even aware of this sort of modeling and I should go trough all the references. So, all in all, papers are published and there seem to be some convincing results. So, I'm not judging the merit.
But when we go to the personal side and ask me about it (as opposed to provide an objective account of the matter), I can't really change my mind. For example:
All in all, when considering things from the personal side, the matter is about: am I willing to spend time implementing this? would be worth it? My answer is: I see some things in the papers that signaled some warnings that some things might have been overlooked, I see no details for implementing it in my code, it's relatively expensive, not for now then. Nothing personal or judgemental, just that.
