Default Forced Transition, how to?

Hi guys,

lets say I am simulating a 2D airfoil and I do exactly know the point of transition due to a trip on the airfoil's surface.

Since I do not want to use a transition model I was thinking about splitting my surface in laminar and turbulent region an setting the turblence parameters in the laminar region to 0. Do you think this will work out?

Any experience?
