Shuai-Agarwal Turbulence Model
One-equation k-kL turbulence model was developed from two-equation k-kL closure of Abdol-Hamid et al. . Improvements to the original formulation of one-equation k-kL model (AIAA 2019-1879) were made by optimizing the model constants. The new improved model has been validated by simulating several benchmark canonical wall-bounded turbulent flows with small regions of separation from NASA TMR (https://turbmodels.larc.nasa.gov/). The model needs further investigations by the scientific community to evaluate its potential.
Shuai – Agarwal One Equation k-kL Turbulence Model
The turbulent viscosity is given by:
The final form of the new Shuai-Agarwal one-equation k-kL model is obtained as:
Where is the production term:
The following Bradshaw relation is used to express the relationship between and k and kL:
The parameter of the model are:
