    The Importance of Adequate Turbulence Modeling in Fluid Flows

    L.Q. Moreira1, F.P. Mariano2, A. Silveira-Neto1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.75, No.2, pp. 113-140, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.075.113

    Abstract Turbulence in fluid flow is one of the most challenging problems in classical physics. It is a very important research problem because of its numerous implications, such as industrial applications that involve processes using mixtures of components, heat transfer and lubrication and injection of fuel into the combustion chambers and propulsion systems of airplanes. Turbulence in flow presents characteristics that are fully nonlinear and that occur at high Reynolds numbers. Because of the nonlinear nature of turbulent flow, an increase in the Reynolds number implies an increase in the Kolmogorov wave numbers, and the flow spectrum becomes larger in both… More >
