Hi Everybody,

I was looking at the source code for the Launder-Reece and Rodi Reynolds stress transport model. I noticed that the equations call for the turbulent viscosity. When I looked at the original paper "Progress in the development of a Reynolds-stress turbulence closure," the formulation of the equations in the paper are completely different.

I looked in the header file, where the references for the turbulence models usually are, and there wasn't a reference listed, and I could not find any documentation for the equations that are programmed. My main question is where is the documentation for the equations programmed into OpenFOAM for the Launder-Reece-Rodi turbulence model?

Thanks in advance for any help,
