Hello there!

I am simulating cavitating flow in nozzles and i would like to modify the calculationg of the turbulent viscosity.

with the normal formula mu_turb = C_mu*k*k/eps the turbulent viscosity will be overpredicted in the 2-phase region and thus completely change the dynamic behaviour of the cavitation cloud.

One common way of reducing the turbulent viscosity in the 2-phase region is to introduce a function within the formula of the turbulent viscosity:

mu_turb = f(rho)*C_mu*k*k/eps

where f(roh)=rho_v+(\frac{rho_v-rho}{rho_v-rho_l})^{10}*(rho_l-rho_v)

with l and v denoting liquid and vapour.

so at the moment i don't really know where and how i can modify the equation. I would be really thankfull for any kind of suggestions.

Im face the same problem. It seems can be modified in fluent.i also want to know whether it can be realised in starccm+.
