Dear OpenFoam 1.6 users and experts,
I'm trying to use the LES turbulence model "kOmegaSSTSAS". I noticed some differences between the implemented version and the reference**. The main difference is the SAS source term in the omega equation: in the reference there is a (L/Lvk2)^2 (squared) instead of a simple L/Lvk2 (the coefficients of this term are also different). I'm doing a master thesis in CFD using this model, so I'm aware of how the model works. In the study of this model I discovered that the first version by Menter has a simple L/Lvk2 and later this term has been squared. Underlining that the other coefficients of the implemented model are the same of the reference (except those of the SAS source term), I have two questions:

1) Is the difference I noticed a bug?
2) Is the implemented kOmegaSSTSAS an old version of the model and so it needs to be updated?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There are two version of SST based SAS model

2007 version :
Egorov, Y.,and Menter, F. ,
“Development and Application of SST-SAS Turbulence Model in the DESIDER Project”,
Second Symposium on Hybrid RANS-LES Methods, Corfu, Greece, 2007

2005 version :
Menter, F.R. and Egorov, Y.,
"A Scale-Adaptive Simulation Model using Two-Equation Models",
AIAA paper 2005-1095, Reno/NV, 2005.

here maybe the old version. and Fsas=1.25,this parameter is not in 2007 one .

you may modified this to new the one.
wish helps!
