In [1] Gessner and Emery proposed a closure scheme for the Reynolds-stress equations such that the resultant equations are algebraic and can be solved for the various stress components for corner flows. This note summarizes the earlier work on such closure models for different kinds of turbulent shear flows which was omitted by Gessner and Emery and comments on the general applicability of the model proposed by Gessner and Emery.
