Implementation of an Algebraic Turbulence Model in FEATool Multiphysics

Performing accurate #simulation of #turbulent #flows is still a challenging topic today, especially with limited computational resources. Although the Navier-Stokes equations are perfectly valid in the turbulent flow regime, one typically have to resort to some form of turbulence modeling in order to reduce computational costs, whereby small scale flow fluctuations are effectively filtered out and subsequently approximated by the turbulence model.

Custom definition and implementation of an algebraic turbulence model in #FEATool #Multiphysics is discussed in the following. In particular, the simple equation expression and coefficient syntax highlights how the turbulence model easily can be defined in FEATool.
