This section describes the theory behind the Standard and SST - model. For details about using the models in ANSYS FLUENT, see this chapter and this section in the separate User's Guide.
This section presents the standard [ 379] and shear-stress transport (SST) [ 224] - models. Both models have similar forms, with transport equations for and . The major ways in which the SST model [ 225] differs from the standard model are as follows:
The transport equations, methods of calculating turbulent viscosity, and methods of calculating model constants and other terms are presented separately for each model.
