Default Turbulence modelling in CFD
Posts: n/a
I am a final year undergraduate student at university, and am doing my thesis on the numerical modelling of a 2-Stroke Engine using CFD-ACE.

I have sucessfully modelled 3D laminar flow, and now am looking to model turbulent flow. The problem is that i don't have any values for K and D (epsilon), to input into the simulation.

I am seeking help from anyone who has even approximate values for K and D that i can use as a starting point for the turbulent modelling of this simulation.

Any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated.

as far as i know the general practice to take K is 0.5* times the free stream kinetic energy. i.e 0.5* uinfty**2 but for D(epsilon) it can give some high value, say 30000 or so.

For K & E value at inlet I use:

K = 1.5 * (I*Uin)^2

E = (k^1.5)/characteristic length

I is some turbulence intensity (varies from case to case) - try 0.05 for a start
