An approach for the comprehensive testing of transition-region models is described. This approach emphasizes the need to evaluate the models in all of the flow scenarios for which they are likely to be used. As an example of the procedure, seven different types of transitioning flows are described and experiments illustrating the different scenarios are discussed. Two transition-region models are used to predict mean-flow quantities for all of the cases and selected results are reported.
