  The state of the art in validation of turbulence models for internal flows in turbomachinery is reviewed, based on current work in the thematic area 6 (Turbomachinery Internal Flows) within the EU- Network QNET-CFD (see ).This review first discusses the available databases for validation of turbomachinery flows, and describes the approach within QNET Cited by: 2. In this study, a standard two-equation turbulence model has been extended for compressible, rotational flow as it occurs in turbomachinery and subsequently applied to different turbomachinery.

  The standard k– model is known to exaggerate turbulence in certain regions and give poor predictions in a number of cases, especially in the case of round jets. An appropriate turbulence model is essential to modelling plasma arc cutting. Up to now, no comparative study of different turbulence models was done for PAC.   Furthermore, new turbulence models have recently been developed which were not considered by previous researchers. The present paper reports on a systematic study of the performance of a wide range of low-Reynolds number turbulence models used to predict the detailed flow characteristics of ramp-up-type unsteady flows in a channel.

  Inflow turbulence should be of sufficient form and detail to generate the correct downstream flow. An example for an LPT in Fig. 4, shows types of turbulence content needed. This includes freestream turbulence based on a turbulence spectrum, wake and boundary layer turbulence, with the correct level and distribution of correlated fluctuations. In general two-equation models are regarded as practical choice and developed for diffusion flow, such as k - ɛ, k - ω, shear stress transportation (SST), as well as v 2 - f. In this paper, five common turbulence models were selected to predict the attached separation flow in an experiment-studied planar diffuser with the software FLUENT.   The capabilities of the detached eddy simulation (DES) and the unsteady Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (URANS) versions of the k-ω model in predicting the turbulent flow field in a two-pass internal cooling duct with normal ribs is presented. The flow is dominated by the separation and reattachment of shear layers; unsteady vorticity induced secondary flows and strong streamline . A comparative study of two transition zone models was carried out to assess their ability to simulate boundary layer laminar-turbulent transition. Transition modeling is based on the use of an algebraic equation for the intermittency distribution. The crucial difference between the models lies in the nondimensional breakdown rate formulation.
