Turbulent Flow and Transport 8 Introduction to Turbulence Models 8.1 Approaches to closure. Eddy diffusivity defined in terms of local turbulence intensit and length scale. 8.2 Equations for (i) the kinetic energy of the mean motion and for (ii) the mean kinetic energy associated with the turbulent fluctuations (the turbulence intensity k ). Significance of the various terms. 8.3 Modeling of the terms in the k−equation outside viscous sublayers: the Reynolds stresses, the dissipation function, and the flux terms. 8.4 A calibration of the empirical constants: application of the k−equation in the constant shear layer (an analytical solution). Wall boundary condition on k. 8.5 An equation for ε . Wall boundary conditions. 8.6 Application of the k−epsilon model in some simple cases where analytical solutions re obtained: (i) Decaying uniform turbulence (ii) Decaying convected turbulence (iii) See Problems 8.7 The k−epsilon model applied to more complex flows: some comparisons with experiments. 8.8 Effect of thermal stratification (heat flux) on turbulence. The Richardson number

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
