 September 28, 2011, 14:43 k-omega for flow separation #1 New Member   mike Join Date: Feb 2011 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 11 dear all, i am estimating pressure drop for flow across multiple cylinders with their axis perpendicular to flow direction. the pressure drop estimated by using standard k-epsilon model is deviating experimental value. After which i have used standard k-omega model and now pressure drop is matching closely with experimental value. how k-omega model is giving accurate estimate for pressure drop estimate for flow separation across cylinder ? thanks in advance.

Dear friend, today i have read paper by Wilcox [ URL ="http://www.scribd.com/doc/ 47919871/1988-Wilcox-AIAAJ-k-omega"]. I could not understand much but whatever i understood i have presenting here so that it will be beneficial for us. paper says that Wilcox has done defect layer analysis using perturbation method for k-omega and k-epsilon models. he applied solution from perturbation method to adverse pressure gradient condition. He found that omega equation is better formulation in adverse pressure gradient and in k-epsilon model (equation 25), epsilon equation neglects some terms which significant for adverse pressure gradient condition. because of which over estimation turbulence length scale occurs. the model constants sigma and sigma* are chosen such that model accurately predicts flow separation. but i did not find that integration to viscous layer is responsible for better prediction. If u can understand it better then please let me know u r thoughts.
