ASBM-BSL: An Easy Access to the Structure Based Model Technology
The Algebraic Structure Based Model (ASBM) offers unique features to represent the Reynolds stress tensor from the underlying turbulent structures. It is usually coupled with a non standard length scale equation. A way of coupling it with the more popular BSL ω equation is proposed here. Only a minor modification of the ω equation is required to obtain a realistic turbulent kinetic energy profile and thus achieve fair predictions.
