Turbulent Flow Modeling Quiz

  • The turbulence model uses a mathematical model to predict the effects of turbulence on fluid flows.
  • Additional stress due to turbulent diffusion is modeled using eddy viscosity and mean stress tensor
  •  Example Turbulent flows are found in most real-life scenarios
    • Flow over a vehicle or train
    • The flow of blood through the cardiovascular system
    • Airflow over an aircraft wing
    • Re-entry of a space vehicle
