Abstract
Abstract: The main object of these calculations is the industrial evaluation of a FINFLO flow solver using a low-Reynolds number k-ε and Reynolds stress turbulence models with a rotation correction. The results from the k-ε simulations are good whereas the Reynolds stress model has problems in numerical stability and convergence. Main result: A pump grid for low-Reynolds number turbulence models was made. After that various cases were simulated using a Reynolds Stress model and a low-Reynolds number k-ε turbulence model with a rotation correction.
