CALCULATION OF TURBULENT COUETTE FLOW


USING VARIOUS TURBULENT MODELS


Javier Cuadriello Rodríguez


ABSTRACT


This paper describes some of the different turbulence models and their application to a one-dimensional steady incompressible turbulent Couette flow. In particular it looks at the mixing length turbulence model and at the standard k-epsilon turbulence model. A mixing length turbulence model code was created. Results from the program were compared with experimental and DNS data from several Reynolds numbers from 1300 to 20000. The results show a good agreement with the DNS and experimental data.
