Further testing of the second-moment closure employed in Part I is made. The present part considers the effects of streamline curvature and spanwise system rotation. As expected, the exact stress production terms broadly account for these effects. In addition, the present model, which is applied right up to a wall, successfully captures the laminarization in the rotating boundary layer. Attention is also given to the capability to reproduce the recovery process from curvature.
