 December 7, 2001, 07:46 Turbulence model in rotating system ? #1 Li Yang Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Dear all, Could anyone tell me how should I take into account the effect of a rotating frame on turbulence models (from zero equation to two-equation model) in transonic flow ? Thank you very much in advance. Li

For curved flow it is unsuitable. So, this way can also be called as the correction of the curved surface. It is original from Launder.

I hope you know that the governing equation on a rotating frame has two different formulations: one is using relative velocity and the other using absolute velocity as variables. I would like to know what the difference the turbulence models will have when they are used in different formulations. Do you know any reference papers ? Best regards Li

However, I feel that your problem is not related to the turbulent model. A rotating frame should be same as the turbulent swirl flow. That is to say, when the rotating disk is rotating, the flow will be driven by anisotropic stress, which is deviated from the two-equation turbulent model. This deviation is indepedent on co-ordinate system. So using both velocities should get same results. If you have some errors they are not from the turbulent models but others.

These flows are very ugly flows to predict & people still keep applying isotropic models to these flows.... i guess nothing's better around. Good Luck Abhijit
