Constitutive theory for the Reynolds-stress closures in turbulence modelling Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • For the Reynolds-stress closures in turbulence modelling, a constitutive theory has been developed based on the principle of frame indifference and theory of invariants. The present study sheds light on existing closure models and is instructive to developing a new closure relation.
