Several Cases for the Validation of Turbulence Models Implementation Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper presents several test cases that were used to validate the implementation of two turbulence models in the UNS3D code, an in-house code. The two turbulence models used were the Shear Stress Transport model and the Spalart–Allmaras model. These turbulence models were explored using the numerical results generated by three computational fluid dynamics codes: NASA’s FUN3D and CFL3D, and UNS3D. Four cases were considered: a flat plate case, an airfoil near-wake, a backward-facing step, and a turbine cascade known as the Eleventh Standard Configuration. The numerical results were compared among themselves and against experimental data.
