I think the first term of G must be same as one in linear models.
In linear models such as kEpsilon,
G = nu_t * 2 * symm(grad(U)) && grad(U) (2)
= nu_t * 2 * magSqr(symm(gradU))

I can't understand why factor 2 is omitted in eq. (1).

If you know the reason or the correct generation for nonlinear turbulence model, please give your help to me.

Many thanks

Hi jkim,
I agree with you , Because I work with nonlinear models for example quadratic Shih .
when that me use the first term of G (nu_t * symm(grad(U)) && grad(U)) result of solution
is uncorrect .
But , I run same model with G = nu_t * 2 * symm(grad(U)) && grad(U)- nonlinear_term that result is very good.
so, I think your opinion is correct.
