 November 5, 2001, 15:03 k-e values #1 Jack Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, there, I am a new beginner working with k-e equations for turbulent flows. I am using low-reynolds version k-e equations with simple eddy viscosity method. I have got a converged solution. But I found that the value of the dispation rate (e) is three order magnitude higher than the value of turbulent kinatic energy (k) generally. Is this reasonable result? I have no idea of this. In general, is there any relationship between these two values? I would be very grateful if any experienced one can tell me this. It is really hard to find such informaiton in the text book. Thank you very much. Best regards
