 January 2, 2001, 09:08 boundary conditions for K and Epsilon #1 Hicham Guest   Posts: n/a I make modeling of the air flows in the greenhouses with the model K-epsilon and I ask you which values for the boundary conditions I must put in inlet for the turbulent kinetic energie (k) and for the dissipation of this energie (epsilon)?

Just to begin with, you can assume turbulent intensity around 5% at the inlet. Calculate K and epsilon based on this and compare the results with the experimental data. You may get reasonable match.

U_in=sqrt(u*u+v*v+w*w) e_inlet= (Cmu*rho_inlet*(k_inlet)**2)/Mu_eff hope this helps abhijit
