The present paper describes first efforts carried out to extend the range of Scale-Adaptive Simulation (SAS) methods into the area of RANS-stable flows. Instead of relying on inherent flow instabilities for generating resolved turbulence in unstable regimes, the current approach employs forcing terms for transferring modelled turbulence energy into resolved energy in pre-specified regions of the simulation domain.
