Default LowRe vs γ–Reθ transition model

badoumba is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone,

I ran a simulation with omega-SST, wall function but as expected for my case, the drag is over-estimated. I can either move to a LowRe approach or a transition model.

In Fluent, transition model is possible with omega-SST under γ–Reθ transition model. In OpenFoam, I found this kkLOmega, is it the correct one?

What is the difference, never used the second one? Any difference in computation time?

Thanks !
