    On the Influence of the Reynolds-Stress Anisotropy Tensor on the Prediction of Wall-Affected Three-Dimensional Room Airflows
    (2008-10) ;
    Sanz, Wolfgang 
    It is well known that the turbulence anisotropy has a remarkable influence on the flow of three dimensional wall jets. So the accurate simulation of room airflows with air supplies mounted just below the ceiling requires a highlevel turbulence closure. Therefore in this paper the potential for the improvement of room airflow prediction by using different Reynolds stress models and a new nonlinear eddy viscosity turbulence model are discussed. For this purpose detailed three dimensional PIV measurement results of the velocity distribution and the Reynolds stress in a symmetrical model room are compared with the calculations using different turbulence models.
