Numerical Analysis of Rotating Channel Flow with an Anisotropic Turbulence Model Myeong, Hyeon-Guk;
An anisotropic k-.epsilon. turbulence model for predicting the rotating flows is proposed with the simple inclusion of a new parameter dealing with the extra straining effects in the .epsilon.-equation. This model is employed to compute the effects of Coriolis forces on fully-developed flow in a rotating channel. The predicted results indicate that the present model captures fairly well the striking rotational-induced effects on the Reynolds stresses and the mean flow distributions, including the argumentation of turbulent transport on the unstable side (pressure surface) of the channel and its damping on the stable side (suction surface).
