Extension and validation of the EB-RSM model
The EB-RSM RANS turbulence model, an innovative model based on second moment closure, has been developed for almost 15 years and is now gradually deployed in the industrial practise. It is already implemented in several industrial codes (Code_Saturne, StarCCM+, EZNSS), as well as the open-source code OpenFOAM. In collaboration with industrial partners, the model is now being confronted to more and more complex industrial configurations: Wall-cooling using impinging jets; Measurement/control of head losses in pipes or injectors via local restrictions of the section (diaphragms); Turbine blade cooling by pin matrices; Control of boundary layer separation by local blowing to exploit the Coanda effect; Wing-tip vortices around airfoils representative of the spoilers of Formula One racing cars; Open-water propeller. All these results confirm the interest of the model compared to well-established models, and its numerical robustness.
