Hi I am adding turbulence

I am adding turbulence models similar to what is done in sonicTurbFoam

I have an error in compilation on the line
turbulence->correct; with the rather strange error

"statement cannot resolve address of overloaded function."

I would appreciate any advice on the above issue

It was a typo. Should have read

Oliver did you manage to add turbulence to rhoCentralFoam? If you did, would you be kind enough to share you successes ... |-P

The layout of rhoCentralFoam is quite a bit different than the other turbulent compressible solvers.

Oops, I propositioned the wrong person. I meant to to ask 'srinath' if he managed to add turbulence to rhoCentralFoam and if you so, would you he be kind enough to share his successes.

Upon finding a paper published by the creators of rhoCentralFoam, I managed to understand how it was working and have added turbulence to it.

I am in the midst of testing it on some canonical problems and when I'm confident it works as expected I will post the source for it. I've called it rhoCentralTurbFoam.

Bit of an update ... I managed to get rhoCentralTurbFoam to work. However, the Co stability requirements force the timestep to be so small that it takes a long simulation and wall time to converge. That last thing I was trying to do was to get local (spatially-varying) timestepping working but haven't had the time lately to dig into it further.

I will pass on what I have to anyone if they want it.

Are there any updates on this? I am very interested in this solver.

OpenFOAM 2.0.x has a version of rhoCentralFoam with turbulence enabled (RANS / LES).

Thanks, I will try that!

rhocentralfoam and turbulence model
Could anyone send me a file of fvsolution and fvshemes of a sample test with rhocentralFoam and turbulence model? I mean which solvers should be used for K and epsilon? I try some ones but it diverges.
