Why Manual recommends B-L model for sepating flow?
As it's known to all, the B-L alike algebraic models are quite unreliable for separated flow. So I just don't understand why Numeca still recommends B-L model for separting flow calculation in the table of subsection 4-4.5.2 "First Step: Choosing a Turbulence Model" of user-manual fineTurbo (my version is Fineturbo V8 released in Oct. 2007) . It may be a kind of misleading for newbie.
