Recommendations and best practice for the current state of the art in turbulence modelling
Abstract:The purpose of this article is to offer some insights, suggestions and recommendations on usage of current statistical models of turbulence. The issues discussed have arisen during several decades' worth of combined research experience and through direct support of numerous commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) customer projects covering a broad range of aerospace, automotive, marine and manufacturing applications. The discussions and ideas presented pertain to how existing algorithms and phenomenological models of turbulence can best be used with current computer hardware.
