 February 25, 2002, 09:52 Roughness of a duct #1 Franch Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I have to compare two models: one made with StarCD, one made with AMESim. In AMESim I can define for my duct the friction coefficient. In StarCD I have roughness in wall boundary (parameter Elog or similar) and in the Turbulence model (I use k-epsilon with high Reynolds number). How can I match them together? How can I evaluate StarCD parameters from a friction coefficient that I know?

You can found more suggestion in your alfa and beta choose in the methodology guide Example of calculation (take a look to the 2nd example)(distribuited resistence).
