Evaluation of eddy viscosity turbulence models to predict convective heat transfer
Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on CFD in the Minerals and Process Industries, S. 1-6
Within the CFD-optimization process of thermal energy conversion systems an accurate prediction of the convective heat transfer is required. Because of the lower computational effort and the numerical stability, eddy viscosity turbulence models are often used. Besides the different velocity and time scales the eddy viscosity concept offers a lot of modifications such as variable turbulent Prandtl number, stagnation point, entrainment and near wall correction.
