Hi all,

For my univsersity final year project I'm looking at modelling of vortices under ground effect. I've been looking into turbulence modelling for rotational flows and one of the common theme's is the use of rotational corrections for the turbulence models (such as the spalart with rotational/ curvature correction (SARC)).

Is there a way to setup the Spalart or K-W model in Star with a rotational correction? I can't find this option within the software that we have at univsersity and so wonder if it isn't a standard feature/ has to be setup else where in the programme.

Thanks for your help,
