Implement new turbulence model

I have another question.
In which line in the constructor in the mykOmegaSST.C, I should write the following sentence:

Info << “Defining my own kOmegaSST model “ << endl ;

Thanks a lot.

Greetings sh.d and welcome to the forum!

I moved your questions to a new thread, because they had barely anything to do with that thread.

As for your question, here is some reading material:
You can also use Google (or some other search engine) and look with the following keywords:

openfoam adding new turbulence model

Best regards,

You do not have to make that!

Neeraj made a new turbulence model too, or better he changed the k-epsilon model and had some problems with it.

I helped him by build his turbulence model and uploaded it.
Have a look at the thread, download the turbulence-model and have a look at the code.

If you build your own turbulence model like I mentioned, you get the output message "mySSTModell" etc. automatically.
