Elliptic Blending Models  Low Re?
Hi
I am using two Elliptic Blending models, EB RSM and EB ke, in StarCCM+ (so far using the "All y+ Wall Treatment"). I assume that both models are LowRe, but can anyone confirm? For the purposes of writing a report about the models. Thanks! RESOLO 
Yes they are both lowRe models.
Very Off topic: The primary motivation for elliptic blending functions historically is to beef up the nearwall model so they are usually always applied to lowRe models. However, elliptic blending doesn't necessarily imply that the model is a lowRe model. Indeed, one can construct an elliptic blending function even for a highRe model and I think this should be a direction the community should look towards. Right now we are dealing with near wall treatments assuming the farfield model is correct. However, we know that turbulent viscosity can easily become negative. With elliptic blending, it's much more natural to fix this problem because the flow will be able to see it coming. Basically, rather than compute your turbulent viscosity only locally, introduce a global weight function, the blending function. So who knows, in a few years saying elliptic blending might mean a whole mess of things, in the same way as hybrid RANSLES now means something almost completely different from what it was originally. 
Interesting. Thank you!

HI,
I am trying to apply elliptic blending model in STARCCM+ for flow inside a convergent nozzel with nozzel exit reynolds number of 28000. since its a low Remodel can I apply it for this problem?
