This innovative book offers many useful applications, guidelines, and step by step examples, all within a single resource:• How to compute the Reynolds number for pipes, ducts, spheres, cylinders, plates, airfoils, and cubes.
• Comparison and description of mayor turbulence models (Prandtl k model, Kolmogorov k-ω, 1988 and 2006 k-ω, standard k-ε,
Myong-Kasagi k-ε, 2003 SST, standard Smagorinsky, etc.).
• Recommendations for running RANS, LES, and DNS simulations.
• How to easily hand-calculate key turbulence parameters such as y+, eddy size (Kolmogorov, Taylor, and integral), turbulent kinetic energy, turbulent kinematic viscosity, and turbulent dissipation.
• How to make great, defensible, computationally-defensible (“bullet proof”) meshes.
• Dozens upon dozens of worked examples and practical problems.
• Matlab coding to solve many key turbulence parameters.
• FORTRAN program that solves a turbulent Couette flow using the Prandtl turbulence model.
• Hundreds of modeling tips for laminar, turbulent, and natural circulation flows.
• Time step selection and stability issues.
• Myriads of recommendations for making outstanding data visualization images.
