Development of Multiple Production Equation Model in Low Reynolds Number - Model with the Aid of DNS Data Sin, Jong-Geun; Choe, Yeong-Don;
A multiple production .epsilon. equation model was developed in the low Reynolds number - model with the aids of DNS data. We derived the model theoretically and avoided the use of empirical correlations as much as possible in order for the model to have generality in the prediction of complex turbulent flow. Unavoidable model constants were, however, optimized with the aids of DNS data. All the production and dissipation models in the equation were modified with damping functions to satisfy the wall limiting behavior. A new function, turbulent diffusion and pressure diffusion model for the k and .epsilon. equations were also proposed to satisfy the wall limiting behavior. By, computational investigation on the plane channel flows, we found that the multiple production model for .epsilon. equation could improve the near wall turbulence behavior compared with the standard production model without the complicated empirical modification. Satisfication of the wall limiting conditions for each turbulence model term was found to be most important for the accurate prediction of near wall turbulence behaviors.
