Abstract

RSM (Reynolds Stress Model) simulations of turbulent flow on a streamwise external corner were carried out using the CFD code FLUENT to obtain skin friction. Both wall function and near-wall treatment approaches were used. Experimental data from an earlier experimental study [J. Fluid Mech. 511 (2004)1], measured at the streamwise station x = 0.54 m was used as the inlet condition for the numerical simulation. The objective of the numerical investigation is to determine the accuracy of RSM prediction of skin friction coefficients (Cf) for a complex three-dimensional flow. Calculated values were compared with the experimental data and only wall function model data is found to be in reasonable agreement.
